As the theme for S.A.W. week was ‘Epic Earth’, we decided to find out all about volcanoes.

We watched a really exciting video and then worked collaboratively to make volcanoes using plastic bottles, newspaper and glue. After leaving them overnight to dry, we painted them to look like active volcanoes.  We also wrote instructions to tell others how to make erupting volcanoes.

We found out that when vinegar and bicarbonate of soda are mixed, they cause quite an explosion!
Alongside vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, we added red food colouring, stood well back, and watched our volcanoes erupt wildly!

After watching the volcano film, we used some technical vocabulary as well as some great descriptions to compose poetry.

Using a range of different materials, we created some explosive collages.
