We have been talking about volcanoes and have watched videos of them erupting. When Mrs Newbery said that we could make our own volcanoes, we got very excited. We used modroc for the first time and once it was dry, we painted it grey. Mrs Newbery helped us to use the glue gun to add lava which we painted red. Once the volcanoes were finished, we mixed sodium bicarbonate and vinegar together and watched them 'erupt'. We went on to make pictures of volcanoes, We made them look like they were erupting by blowing the paint. We also learned lots of new vocabulary - erupt, lava, magma, crater and ash.
