Always follow the learning

A solar eclipse doesn’t come around all too often. It’s a classic example of being in the right place at the right time.

These are the days you throw out ‘the timetable.’ All too often in schools we rush around busy, busy, busy.

But what is really important?

When nature puts on a show, it is a teachers’ duty to get children outside and marvel.

The timing of today’s event at drop off time. As a result there were plenty of parents out there just as giddy with excitement as the kids explaining how eclipses occur.

This is learning at its most powerful – outside, authentic and with clear collaboration between home and school.
