As part of our topic, Mountains and Volcanoes, Class 4 built their own volcanoes out of paper maché. When we exploded them, the lava (vinegar and bicarbonate of soda) did not produce quite the dramatic explosion we were hoping for.

Class 4 used their artistic skills to decorate the models to look just like the real thing.

The children sat in awe of the mighty explosion on the playground.

 

Can you see the pyroclastic flow?

 

Never get too close to an exploding volcano!
