Word of the Week 20/3/2015 “Sonnercrisps” #WOTW

No I didn’t know what it meant either… but Madam was very excited at the start of the week because they had been learning all about the “sonnercrisps” at school.

It wasn’t until we got home and I found a letter in her bag informing me that they would be watching today’s SOLAR ECLIPSE that the penny dropped 😀

They used a piece of card with a pin prick in and a piece of paper so that they could see it safely and apparently they all thought it was wonderful. I think it’s great that they’ve been able to see it.

Things like that get kids interested in science and the stars which is a good thing in my opinion. Especially since sonnercrisps don’t happen all that often.

  1. That is so cute! Sonnercrisp 🙂 We saw a bit of it here in Cornwall. But it was never really dark, it looked more like an ordinary winter day in England 😉 #wotw.

    Oh goodness Karen, I love this. I have had a wonderful laugh. I got to see a sonnercrisp many years ago. They do not last long but are really something.

    It’s wonderful that your daughter got to see the eclipse safely. It’s a shame that so many children didn’t get to see something that rarely happens. Here in Greece it wasn’t so spectacular, but they kept school children in during and for about an hour afterwards. I’d much rather they let them watch it safely, but better to be safe than sorry when it comes to eyesight.

    Love this word. I’m so glad she got to see it at school. Children were really obsessed with space last week x
