Soyuz Rocket Launch

This morning the whole school gathered in the hall to watch the launch of the Soyuz rocket from Kazakhstan to the International Space Station.  The children were excited to watch the British astronaut, Tim Peake, being blasted into orbit at the start of his 6 hour journey to the ISS where he will spend the next 6 months with other astronauts carrying out scientific experiments and educational projects designed to attract young people into science.
