Children from a Suffolk primary school got in the Star Wars mood yesterday by making their very own lightsabers.

Martlesham Primary Academy pupils made dozens of the famous Jedi Knights’ weapons, before visiting Riverside Cinema in Woodbridge to sell of their unique gifts and watch a screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Funds from the lightsabers, which they sold outside the Riverside, will go towards the school.
