Spring’s solar eclipse is something that won’t be forgotten in a hurry by youngsters at Gedney Drove End Primary School.

The children carried out various activities as the sun disappeared behind the moon.
Teaching assistant Sally Horne said pupils watched the eclipse using pin hole cameras made out of old cereal boxes. They also projected the disappearing sun on to a card on the ground using another card with a hole punched in it, and filmed the event on iPads.
Sally said: “The temperature really dropped. It was ten degrees and it went down to four degrees. The children were quite interested in that.”
