Volcano Building (7th April 2017)

Yesterday, Kingfishers class built their own volcanoes using empty milkshake bottles and paper mache, to conclude their Tremors topic.

Once pupils had built and carefully painted their volcanoes, it was time to make them erupt! Pupils poured in 75ml of white vinegar and added 2 tablespoons of bicarbonate soda and 2-3 drops of red food colouring, then stood back and watched the 'lava' flow.
