The Nadezhda Russian language school in Pamplona, ​​Spain, with the support of the Russkiy Mir Foundation, held the Cosmonautics Week  from September 14 to 19. The participants talked about space, planets, stars and meteorites.

Senior students prepared presentations about cosmonauts, including the famous dogs Belka and Strelka, about the first woman-cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova and, of course, about Yuri Gagarin.

The youngest students watched educational videos about space, sang a song about the planets of the solar system, and also made rockets from geometric shapes and the wall newspaper called My Little Space.
