Worldly Wise: Volcanoes


This week in our Worldly Wise assembly, we learnt about different types of volcano, how they are formed and why they erupt. Did you know that there are over 1500 active volcanoes in the world?

Our very own Hacton volcano was created by Mr Marshall and Miss Hornsby using vinegar, baking soda and red food colouring. Our pupils learnt that eruptions can cause catastrophic damage and they were very excited to watch the Hacton eruption occur. Thankfully, our little volcano was a lot less destructive than the real thing.
