THREE, two, one... we have lift off!
Not quite NASA, but spectacular nonetheless when pupils at St Peter's Junior School in Wisbech carried out their own rocket launches on Friday.
Plastic bottles filled with water were inflated with air by pupils - until they flew up into the sky.
Peter Wearn, from the company Cool Science, brought the project to the school as they prepared for this week's National Science and Engineering Week.
