Plumcroft children will be taken outside to experience the partial solar eclipse on Friday morning.  Please click the link to read more.

Plumcroft children will be taken outside on Friday morning for a short time to experience the darkening of the day during the eclipse but they will not be allowed to look directly at the sun/eclipse unless they have the right viewing equipment provided by the school.  Please remind your children to be sensible and follow the instructions of their teacher.

Please also take some time to read through this document with your children, detailing how an eclipse occurs and what safety issues we need to be aware of during an eclipse.
