Pupils make historic radio call to astronaut Tim Peake

Sandringham School in St Albans has made history by making the first amateur radio call from the UK to a British astronaut on the space station.

The children contacted Major Tim Peake as he flew overhead on Friday morning.

Pupil Jessica, who recently passed her radio exams, led the conversation and 12-year-old Hugo asked this question about the mission's name, Principia.

The school is taking part in this year's BBC News School Report - the 10th year of the project.
