On Friday 20th March, we took time out of the classroom to experience the 85% solar eclipse.
We gathered together at 9.25am, in the school playground, for that rare moment when the moon covers the face of our sun. The children were warned not to look directly at the sun, but they were all encouraged to observe this wonderful phenomenon through specially filtered glasses. We also used the pin hole box method and binoculars directed onto card to view the partial eclipse.
This was an amazing event that both children and adults will remember for the rest of their lives and it was great to experience it together!
