We had over 400 children awaiting the eclipse in the school grounds on Friday. From 5 to 7 year olds looking into the water at the school's Kingfisher Island, to children looking into all sorts of containers of water to catch a glimpse of this magical reflection. Some made viewing equipment at home. The count down was managed by Year 6 pupils via a solar powered clock. Whilst cloud blocked clear observations, what the children did notice was that:
'Street lights came on,' Abbie aged 10
'A heron came into roost' Tamara
'It went very cold' was a common observation.
