Year 3 make volcanoes

This term, as part of our ‘Extreme Earth’ topic we are making volcanoes in year 3.

First we needed to create the volcano shape and attach it to a base – this needed a lot of help from our teacher and a glue gun! After our volcanoes were secure, we covered them all in a layer of paper mache. We then had to manipulate the newspaper to create a texture that conveyed movement for the lava flows.

Here are some pictures of us doing this.

Look out for our next two blog posts which will show them being painted and us erupting them!
