Lift Off At Last!

Do you remember the catastrophic attempt to send our seeds into space? Well if you want to jog your memory and watch the video take a look here.

Well this time, I want to report some good news!

On 2 September our rocket seeds were successfully launched into space, bound for their new home aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

The seeds departed from Baikonur, Kazakhstan on Soyuz 44S – the flight that is delivering European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen and his crew to the ISS.

The rocket will dock tomorrow morning and the astronauts will unload the seeds and transfer them safely on board. They will remain on the ISS for several months and return to Earth with astronaut Scott Kelly, currently planned for March 2016.

We are all so excited and the children cannot wait to see the results of our lunar blooms in March.

Speaking To Our New Friends In Tanzania!

How did we survive before the Internet? One of the most important developments in cyberspace, has been the ease in which we can speak to people face to face, anywhere in the World for free!

That is exactly what we did on Friday 28th August, when our preschoolers spoke with a group of children at an orphanage in Tanzania.

The call was arranged by one of our nursery staff who has recently returned from a six month sabbatical there.

All our children were very excited to speak directly to the children in Africa, especially after we showed them where Tanzania was on a map. It won’t stop there though as this will continue as an ongoing programme.
