Miss Carter: March 2015
We were very lucky to have clear viewing of the Solar Eclipse this morning!
It was lovely to see the enjoyment of such an amazing occasion this morning with all the children helping each other to view safely and understand how the Solar Eclipse works. All Bases were very excited to watch the live streaming from Brine Leas High School (many thanks!) on the Interactive whiteboards and were truly amazed at the moon clearly and gradually blocking the sun.
The children from Base 3 especially enjoyed being outside to witness first hand the effects of the light dimming and learning from the children in Base 5, who had made 'DIY pinhole cameras' just this morning! As you can see in the pictures, this created clear images of the sun and it's stages of eclipse for the children to keep monitoring between the hours of 9am and 10am.
Base 4 were particularly listening out for the change in the birds' song during the eclipse, as we know it can give them a false sense of dusk when the light dulls. How interesting!
We'll have a little wait for the next Solar Eclipse now...only 11 years away in 2026!
