Today Y6 researched solar eclipses and found out that an eclipse is an astronomical event which occurs when the Earth, sun and moon line together. the moon casts a shadow over Earth. We learned that we should never try to look at the eclipse without proper eye protection as it can cause retinal burns that cannot be repaired.

So that we could observe the eclipse safely we made different solar eclipse viewers out of cardboard boxes, aluminum foil and white paper. Some worked better that others. By Amelia, Zak and Tyler
