VOLCANOES and EARTHQUAKES SPRING 2019     volcano200




Year Three have enjoyed learning about volcanoes and earthquakes during the Spring term.  We began by looking at the different layers of the earth, followed by plotting the locations of some of the world’s volcanoes onto a map.

After researching and labelling a cross section of a volcano, we learnt about how volcanoes are formed and how they can be both harmful and helpful to the environment around them.

We culminated our learning by studying the work of artist, Nick Rowland. We practised splatter, spray and blow painting techniques, as well as colour mixing and then used these techniques to re-create our own versions of his painting.

Also take a look at some of our fantastic homework projects on volcanoes:
