Solar Eclipse

Posted on: March 26th 2015

We were all very excited last week as we waited to view a once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse! During the week, we prepared ourselves by learning about what an eclipse is and how to view it safely.  Each class made various styles of pinhole cameras and practised using them. Unfortunately, as you are aware, the weather was not on our side and we had to be content watching the live feed of the eclipse from the University of Nottingham.  Nonetheless, we got a great view of the eclipse and were riveted as we watched the moon reach its totality, leaving only the sun’s corona exposed.

The children have taken their pinhole cameras home and have been instructed to keep them safe until the next total solar eclipse is visible in the UK….in 2090!
