Mayfield Primary School P1’s latest project has literally been out of this world.

Teacher Leanne Muirhead explained more: “My P1 class have been enthralled by Tim Peake’s ‘Principia’ mission on the International Space Station and this has heavily influenced our space topic.

“We have been following Tim on Twitter and were excited to apply to the Rocket Science programme, which we were successful in being accepted on to.

“We’ve just sown our space seeds and can’t wait to see the first signs of growth.”
