Solar Eclipse

On the morning of 20th March the children witnessed the solar eclipse. Live pictures were streamed in each class via the interactive whiteboards. Foundation phase children experienced the change in light as it became darker and a drop in temperature whilst they studied how their shadows changed as the moon passed in front of the sun. The older children had the opportunity to safely view the eclipse using the colander and paper technique and Morgan brought in a viewing box that he had made at home.
