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.
