Tim Peake's Shuttle

"Wow, it looks like a castle!" remarked most of the class as we approached the beautiful Peterborough Cathedral.

The architecture left the class awe struck as they walked upto it, taking in the towers, statues and grandeur of the building. Once inside they continued to be wowed as we walked around the amazing building. Identifying the different church furniture, we were able to amke comparisons with St Thomas' church and St Botolph's too. 


We were then filled with further amazement as we looked at the Soyuz shuttle that brought Tim Peake safely back to Earth.


"I can't believe three people were able to fit comfortably in there," commented Declan. 

Learning about his return trip, how long it took and where he landed, along with looking at his space suit, left us with lots of other questions we would love to explore about Space in Autumn Term 2. We can't wait to share the rest fo our learning with you, make sure you keep popping back!
