Cosmic Classroom!

This afternoon, Y5 joined thousands of other UK school children live in the Cosmic Classroom. We linked up to the ISS and watched Tim Peake demonstrate what you can do with water in space!  We watched in amazement as Tim played 'ping-pong' with a bubble of water and watched the bubble grow and fizz when he added a vitamin tablet to it. He answered questions live from children at the World Museum in Liverpool and from video messages around the country. Out of the window, Tim could see the South Atlantic Ocean and the coast of Africa. Although he answered lots of questions, it inspired us to ask even more of our own. We hope to send Tim our questions via the internet. Look out for updates soon.
