Volcanoes erupting in Amethyst Class!

In Year Three we have been exploring the life cycle of a volcano in our ‘Earth Rocks’ Learning Adventure. After making papier mache volcanoes, we then created the lava by combining vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to create an acid and alkali reaction .

Below are some photos from the actual eruption event!




Alongside this, the children have been writing some brilliant formal recounts about the process. Below is Hollie’s writing in it’s draft form. We are so proud of Hollie because, not only has she written a very engaging piece, but she has worked extremely hard on her targets, as have so many in Year Three.

We hope you are as impressed as we are!
