What an eruptive time year 3 have had in their geography lessons in Autumn! They have been investigating and inquiring all about Volcanoes! They have used world maps and Atlases to locate the World's most famous active and dormant volcanoes.
The children have also investigated how the Earth is made up of different layers and the features of a volcano.
Exciting news.......The year 3 even made their very own Volcano!!!!!! THEN……….using Coke and Mints …………….stood back and watched it erupt!!!! ( Video to follow soon….)
For extended writes the children of year 3 created a diary entry from the prospectus of an eye witness!! They are rather good, even if I do say so myself! Not only did they use their philosophical ideas and opinions to put themselves in the shoes of the eye witness, they had to use their geographical knowledge and understanding of the dangers and effects of an erupting volcano in its surrounding areas!!
