Paddington PostcardsOur Unicef postcard was from Indonesia today. It told us about Sophia who lost her home and school in a tsunami, her new school is a big tent supplied by Unicef.  After we read the postcard the children found out how to make a volcano. 

All you need is a plastic bottle or cup and pour into it:

1) a small squirt of washing up liquid (about 2 tablespoons)

2) 1 tablespoon of red or orange food colouring 

3) 2 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda

Finally pour in some vinegar and watch your volcano erupt!

The children then decided that they wanted to try to make a volcano in water to see if they could make their own mini tsunami.  I am so pleased we did this outside, it can get a bit messy and smelly!
