During science we have been learning about balanced diets. We have discussed what makes a balanced diet and why it is so important to make sure we all have a balanced diet. In our D&T lesson we made our own healthy plates.
Oh no! Our class was destroyed by a volcano!
Distaster struck over the holidays inside class 3MG. Unbeknownst to us, we were hit by a huge volcano eruption. Miss McGrath had popped in to class to finish off a couple of jobs when she came across this giant, burning mess. She was devastated to find her classroom destroyed and wondered what on earth had happened. After checking the school cameras, she found this video and all became very clear. Class 3MG had been hit by a terrifying volcano. Over the holidays, Miss McGrath worked extremely hard to get the classroom back to normal and luckily she managed to finish just in time for the children returning from their summer break. She then shared the video with the children and showed them what had happened to the classroom. Everyone was shocked and couldn't understand how or why this had happened. We are going to learn all about volcanoes in our topic lessons to help us understand a lot more about volcanoes.
Making a volcano
Year 3MG have been learning all about our 'Active Planet'. They have been learning about volcanoes and have made their very own volcano in class.
The children used:
1 paper plate
red, brown, yellow and orange tissue paper
The children then followed instructions carefully to create an erupting volcano.
1. Draw 3 circles on your plate from the centre getting larger in size around each circle.
2. Rip or cut up pieces of tissue paper.
3. Glue the tissue paper on to the paper plate in circular patterns.
(brown outer, then red, orange is next and finally yellow in the centre.)
We then had a go at making our own volcanoes erupt, it was very exciting!
