Spring Term 1 – May The Force Be With You

Kaboom!

And just like that, Autumn term is over and we have erupted head first into the Spring Term, with our new project “May The Force Be With You!” Trust me; it is going to be lava-ly!

I am incredibly excited about this one. We will learn all about how volcanoes are made, what turns them from dormant to active, what the difference is between magma and lava, and how much pressure it takes to explode one (even more pressure than during the hardest exam in the world ever!)

If that’s not all thrilling enough, we have a super exciting WOW science morning booked in towards the end of January at Sharples High School where we will be… actually, I’m going to keep that one a secret for the moment!

There are lots of things you might want to find out and blog about. Why do they happen? Is there a link between them and earthquakes? Are there any famous volcanoes? Why are they called volcanoes?

This video here might help you answer some of those questions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V863xR0Y2qk

See you in January!

Mr Green
