Solar Eclipse


...

On Friday 20th March we experienced a solar eclipse, so the children and staff have made their very own eclipse at Silchester.

This was an incredible opportunity to talk about the planets in the solar system, exploring the universe beyond planet earth. The children will be able to explore the world in which they live and begin to learn about the natural processes that occur.

The UK hasn't seen a total solar eclipse - where the Moon completely covers the Sun - since 1999, and won't get another one until 2090.
