Stem Week 2017
For Stem Week, Year 5 focused on Volcanoes, linking to the topic of 'Change'. Throughout the week, we looked at various volcanoes around the world, studying their formation, their activity and the causes of these. The week culminated with an experiment based on chemical reactions, where they erupted the volcanoes they had created in groups. What a fun week we had!
