As part of our Volcanoes and Earthquakes Geography topic the children spent the afternoon working in pairs to paint their paper mache volcanoes. They studied photographs of real life volcanoes and used their knowledge of the subject and their Art skills to paint their own volcanoes.
As part of our Geography topic ‘What makes the Earth angry?’ we invited our families in for an afternoon of D.T. We made volcanoes by attaching masking tape to half a bottle and base; making the volcano shape. We then used paper mache to cover the structure and build up the crater. Year 3 had a brilliant afternoon! We then finished off our afternoon by solving a range of Maths problem solving activities. We can’t wait to paint then explode our volcanoes.
