WoW! What a very special British Science week it’s been with several parents visiting to talk about their work in Science and Engineering and ending with the best eclipse of the sun for many years. Thank you to all the visitors for taking time out to talk so enthusiastically about your careers.
Excellent footage of the eclipse can be viewed on a video filmed on the Faroe Islands which were plunged into darkness.
A projection of the eclipse inside the box How does this work? The sun shone through the window,then through a pair of binoculars which were attached to the box. The image of the eclipse was then projected onto a sheet of white paper inside the box
Inside the box – this was a very effective method!

Viewing safely on live footage indoors – less adventurous but safe. Experts warn us that looking at direct sunlight can cause serious harm.
There was great excitement this morning when the first frog spawn was spotted in the pond. A small amount was carefully taken out for our new observation tank on the nature table. It will be really exciting to watch the frog spawn change over the next few weeks. Taking great care of the frog spawn is extremely important and all will be returned safely back into their home in the school pond at the end of our study. How long do you think it will be before the tadpoles appear from the spawn? Watch this space!
