Can we find out the size of the biggest hail stone? Why are there reports of it raining fish? What is a twister? Why are there so many earthquakes in the Ring of Fire? These are just many questions Year 2 have been asking as they study “The Power of Nature”.
As part of their focus, they have been studying volcanoes. They each made a clay version, kindly fired by Mr Lenton. They were then painted with a paint and PVA glue mixture to make them look more realistic.
The finale was of course to create the explosions using a mixture of bicarbonate of soda, vinegar and red food colouring.
