Eclipse! A chance for active learning, despite the clouds

 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.
