Spring 1 2017


Our topic for Spring 1 2017 is Volcanoes and Earthquakes

We made volcanoes from clay. 

We erupted fizzy pop using Mentos mints. We then created a word bank of adjectives, adverbs and similes to describe the eruption, to use in our volcano poems. 

We invited our families in to showcase our work and take part in volcano activities. We had a great afternoon, especially erupting our volcanoes.
