Theme

2Do: Use your knowledge about volcanoes to answer the Purple Mash Quiz.

 

How to represent a volcanic eruption through dance:

You are going to commentate on a volcanic eruption! Watch this clip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4tUmCftHn8

This is the clip you will commentate on.

 

Now, watch the first part of David Attenborough commentating on a volcanic eruption:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRD4YZx3g2k

When you commentate on the dancing and music, you will need to stand close to your audience, looking at them and speaking clearly and slowly. Look over your shoulders at the volcano every now and then, and then turn back to the audience. This is what David Attenborough does when he is speaking to the camera. 

 

Art

  • Can you create volcano art in the style of Margaret Godfrey?

PSHE

Play a board game with your family. Can everyone take turns and listen to each other? Games such as monopoly and snakes and ladders will really help with your maths skills. A game like Cluedo will really help with your memory, problem solving and inference skills.
