A Visit from a Vulcanologist

We have been really lucky to have a parent come into school and talk about his job - filming eruptions all over the world.

Mike arrived in his special suit and shared some really amazing clips and footage that he has filmed, as well as some other really amazing footage that the boys found very interesting.
He talked about pyroclastic eruptions and showed us this clip;

He went on to talk about different types of eruptions and different kinds of volcanoes.  The boys asked loads of questions and Mike answered them all in such a great way that he kept every class totally engrossed for every session.
The boys, and teachers, really enjoyed his visit and we all learnt so much.  Thank you Mike for coming in and sharing your exciting experiences and interesting knowledge.  Hopefully you will come back soon and share your interesting knowledge about earthquakes!
