Greswold enjoys the solar eclipse

It's not often we get to experience a solar eclipse. Today we had a special assembly to celebrate the event. Our former head of Governors, Mrs Pickard, explained to the pupils why the event occurs. We also watched the event live via a webcam on our playground and via the BBC Stargazing Live website. The children experienced the way the day suddenly became dusk-like, however the birds didn't stop singing (which is what they were supposed to do). It will be 2026 when the next eclipse like this occurs in the UK.
