D&T

Last week in our topic/D&T session, we talked about how to make a volcano at home. 

 

The task for today is to make your own volcano - or your own version of one.

 

                                                   
 

Some children have let me know that this might not be possible - this is fine. I know we can only use what is in our houses at the moment and I want you all to stay safe. 

 

With this in mind, if you have not got the ingredients or are struggling to find recycling to make your volcano with, then you can select a well known volcano and prepare a presentation (e.g. fact file, poster) about it.

 

Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii, Italy, is one that Mrs Brooks finds very interesting, so if you wish to impress her then go for this one. There is lots of information on this online. 

 

Another famous eruption, which I recall as it happened during the Easter break in 2010 and many teachers and students had their flights grounded due to an ash cloud meaning they could not return home in time for school, is Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland.

 

You might even know of some more volcanoes and their eruptions.
