Volcano Home Project


Now that you have learned all about volcanoes, can you make your own erupting volcano?

We would like you to try to construct your own 3-D model volcano, using a range of modelling materials.

Think about...

  • What type of volcano you will make?
  • What shape should it be? 


Once you have made your volcano, you can then make it erupt! (You must have an adult to help you with this!)


Things to think about when making your volcano erupt: 

  • Does the shape of the volcano affect the direction the eruption travels?
  • What can be added to the “lava” to slow it down and make it more like real lava?
  • What combination of vinegar and baking soda creates the biggest eruption?


There are links below to help you with this project, including what you will need. 


Please email us pictures or videos of your volcanic eruption and we will post them on the website!

Good luck! 


This week we will be looking at the offertory and consecration. 

On our 'RE at Home' page, you will find different links to some great resources for daily prayers and Sunday liturgies, along with a project you can do as a family!


WALT: Find differences between rocks by testing. 

Words to learn and use:

  • clay
  • limestone
  • ore
  • particles
  • quartz
Following from last week's task, here is an activity you can do at home with your family!


You will be using this history to help you with your literacy, so we recommend you do it first :) 


WALT: use a range of sources to research Pompeii.  

This week you will be looking at lots of different sources (some below) to research Pompeii. Some of the things you need to consider are: 

  • When did it happen?
  • Type and size of eruption. 
  • What happened? (effects on people and environment). 
  • What is it like now?
  • Pictures/drawings
  • Interesting fact


You can layout your research however you choose: fact file, poster, leaflet, written.


WALT: plan and write a diary entry of someone who survived Pompeii. 

Activity 1: Reading the diary entries below, along with information about what happened in Pompeii. You need to imagine that you are someone who has just watched Mount Vesuvius erupt and the timeline unfold.

You need to think about: What can you smell? What can you hear? What can you see? What can you feel? How do you feel? (You can use the sheet attached if easier). 


Imaging you have just witnessed this and getting into the character will help with you writing your diary later.

Activity 2: Now you can start planning and writing your diary entry. There is a checklist for you to use, to make sure you have got the things you need. You can use the storyboard template to plan if you wish, or you could use your home learning books!  There is also diary templates, which are great to show you a sentence starter and layout. 


There are different checklists and diary templates, so pick the challenge best for you :)


This week we are continuing our work on multiplication and division word problems.

Guided Reading

Remember to use you BugClub if you want a change for reading books! We have put different books on there and there's always more to allocate to you. 

If you have not got your login details, email your teacher. 


The Body Coach, Joe Wicks will be doing live workouts for children on his YouTube Channel every morning from 9am. They last 30 minutes and are a great way to start off the day! #PEwithJoe


Don’t forget to do the Daily Mile! Why not get the whole family involved?!
