Outdoor Learning

Class Three were very excited to be making their finished volcanoes erupt. They combined bicarbonate of soda with vinegar and food colouring to create a chemical reaction. They explored and discussed what destruction and impact a volcano could have on the landscape. 
Class Three have been creating their own volcanoes made from salt dough. They followed a recipe to create the dough and moulded the material around a small bottle to create a volcano. Over the next few weeks the class will paint their volcanoes and add natural materials to be trees and vegetation on the landscape before combining materials to create a chemical reaction and making the volcanoes erupt.....

A cooking challenge for year 5's in Outdoor learning. The children followed a simple recipe and made some Indonesian cookies. 
Class Three continued their work on natural disasters and this week looked at tsunamis. 
They created a landscape and added water to create the sea. They increased the size of the tremors and compared the scale of destruction. The children then made mangroves to see if that would have a impact on how much destruction a tsunami would cause.
