Erupting Volcanoes

For the last two weeks, we've been learning all about volcanoes. We found out how volcanoes are formed, why they erupt, researched about the different parts of a volcano and the types of volcanoes there are. From our learning we wrote some factual booklets packed full of information. As well as all this, we created model volcanoes from modroc. We worked incredibly hard on these and even wrote a set of instructions so other children can make their own model. Finally, on Friday, we got to make them erupt using washing up liquid, bicarbonate of soda, vinegar and water.

We were amazed by the eruptions and thought this was a fantastically explosive ending to our volano learning.

We now want to find out about tornadoes, so we will be moving on to this next week.
