A Volcano Erupts in Reception Class

Reception have been learning all about dinosaurs and the different theories on why they went extinct. As part of their topic, the children watched how we could make a volcano erupt in the classroom by creating a chemical reaction. The children were very excited and exclaimed loudly as the volcanic eruption spilled over the sides of the volcano. Many commented how the dinosaurs around the volcano were going to die because of the ‘lava’. While some children tried to save the dinosaurs, others found it more fun to play with the dinosaurs in the ‘lava’.
