We have had a very exciting morning watching Stargazing Live on the big screen so that we could see the eclipse happening. We were a bit disappointed that there was cloud here though. However, at just the right moment enough of the cloud cleared for us to see the full extent of the eclipse safely. It really did look like the sun was smiling! We also noticed that it was eerily cool and quite dark. The other thing that was very noticeable was that the birds stopped singing and it was silent. It was a very emotional moment when we saw the eclipse and the children all started to clap. We hope that you were all able to catch a glimpse of the eclipse as it is such a special event. One of the members of staff took a picture so hopefully we can add that next week. And all in British Science Week too!
