Closer to eruption!

This week Larch have painted their volcanoes, ready to cause one to erupt next week. We looked at pictures of volcanoes first to ensure we chose appropriate colours then worked in our groups to paint over the paper mache. What fantastic results!

Paper mache volcano!

In Larch class, we have had a fantastic learning opportunity making volcanoes using plastic bottles and cardboard boxes. We have worked in groups, using our teamwork skills to firstly, make a volcano shape using scrunched up newspaper and masking tape. Next, we used paper mache and thin strips of newspaper to stick onto our volcano shape. We are now letting it dry in order to paint it the correct colours (we will share our finished volcanoes next week!)
