Warning: Pyroclastic Flow at PFS

Excitement in the classroom making volcanoes

This term, as the final part of a unit of work on Plate Tectonics, students created some active volcanoes of their own.   Having learnt all about the location, causes and effects of volcanoes and earthquakes around the world, students used their craft skills to build plaster models of composite volcanoes.  Through the addition of the right combination of  baking soda and vinegar lava flows poured down the side of our Vesuvius, Krakatoa and Etna destroying everything in their path!
