An Eruptive Afternoon For Year 3

During the Spring term year 3 have been learning all about volcanoes, mountains and earthquakes within our Geography lessons. Using their new knowledge, the children have also created some superb newspaper reports about disastrous earthquakes in their English lessons.

Today we decided to end our time on this topic with a big bang! The children got the chance to make their very own volcanoes and then erupt them.

We spoke about the chemical reaction that was taking place between the bicarbonate of soda and the vinegar. When both of these things mix a gas is created which pushed up our “lava” and made our volcanoes erupt.

Well done year 3, we are so proud with how hard you have all worked during this topic.
