RGS Watches the Solar Eclipse!

Redland Green School students came out of their classrooms this morning to experience the rare phenomenon of the solar eclipse.

As we walked out in the erie dusk-like sunshine there was a definite feeling of excitement. The lower school students gathered on the astro pitch. Ms Bott, Curriculum Team Leader of Science, had ordered in special eclipse glasses that were being handed around to students, so they could see the eclipse. And impressively, a large number of students had made their own pin hole cameras to watch the spectacle on.

Post 16 students were watching the progress of the moon move in front of the sun up on the school roof. They were creating special films to put in front of their cameras to be able take pictures of the eclipse.

Take a look at the pictures below.
