Big Eruptions in Year 3
Volcanoes are the talk of the day...
To introduce year 3 to their new topic of volcanoes, (with a key focus on Mount Vesuvius), we discussed the children's prior knowledge and vocabulary around volcanoes and then showed them some amazing videos of the natural phenomenon.
Children expressed a range of emotions from being wowed and amazed, to feeling concern and worry about anyone who would be living close to one. Year 3 then created their own volcano artwork using pastels and chalk. These are now on display in our classrooms.
