As part of Academy Day, students from Year 7 to Year 13 visited the once-in-a lifetime exhibition at the Science Museum on the dramatic story of how Russia turned the dream of space travel into a reality, becoming the first nation to explore space.
Supporting learning in both our History and Science courses, students were excited to explore and discover the most significant collection of Russian spacecraft and artefacts ever to be shown in the UK, including the capsule flown by the first ever woman in space, Valentina Tershkova, along with the capsule used on the first mission to carry more than one crew member.
Students were impeccably well behaved, asking poignant and intelligent questions of exhibit staff as they explored the historical, cultural and spiritual context of Russian space travel in the 20th century.
