  1. Dear Five White & Miss Azzopardi,

    Creating the volcanoes and erupting them were very fun. My favourite part of erupting the volcanoes was squeezing the lemon juice in the bottle with the mixture because the lemon juice made it all fizzy and bubbly, I also liked dipping the strips of newspapper in the sticky glue!

    Yours Sincerely,
    Cecilia

    • Dear Cecilia,
      I agree creating the volcanoes were really fun! My favourite activity was presenting facts about the different kinds of volcanoes. Before I thought that there weren’t 3 types of volcanoes but now I do. What was your favourite activity?

      Kind regards,
      Natalie

      Dear Cecilia,

      I agree making the diorama of the volcano is awesome!
      I didn’t use the lemo juice technique i used the baking soda and vinegar and it was almost the same and i pour so much vinegar.

      Sincerely,
      Josephine

  2. Dear Five white and Miss Azzopardi,

    My favorite activity was doing the news report and what i enjoyed about erupting the volcano was to make the lava for the volcano eruption.

    Sincerely,

    James

    • Dear James,

      I agree, It was the best task you’ve presented! The news report was very funny too, especially when you said that the scientist you are interviewing was on a holiday or on a vacation. Very creative!

      Yours Truly,
      Cecilia

    Dear Five White and Miss Azzopardi,

    What I enjoyed about making my volcano erupt is when we had to paint it! It was the easiest part! I also enjoyed the part where we had to make the shape of the volcano, it was a bit confusing at first though!

    Sincerely,
    Kong

    Dear five white and miss Azzopardi

    My favourite research activity was the first activity on the list which was… choose twenty words related to volcanoes and write what it means on a presentation.

    sincerely

    Dear Five White and Miss Azzopardi,

    My favorite part of erupting my Volcano was when the lava came out and my favorite activity was making a News Program. What was your favorite activity 5 White and what was your favorite part or scene of when the volcanoes errupted ?

    King Regards,
    Tony

    • Josephine

      Dear Tony,

      When the lava flowed out it looks really cool and real because it is red.
      My activity that i like is the news report and my favourite party of the volcano is mixing all the ingredients in.

      Sincerely,
      Josephine

    Dear Five White and Miss Azzopardi,

    My favourite activity we did in HSIE is the news report because it is better activity to present our work and we reaserach any volcano we want!
    My favourite part when we were erupting our volcano is adding baking soda and vinegar because when we mixed both of them together they form into bubbly and fizzy water which is red. How did your volcano eruption turned out?

    Bye,
    Josephine

    • Amy

      Dear Josephine,

      My favourite task was also news report it was fun finding information about a tsunami in Japan. It was also fun erupting my volcano but it didnt work that much.

      Kind Regards,
      Amy

    • Dear Josephine,

      My volcano eruption turned out SUPER bubbly, Maybe it was because I was squeezing too much lemon juice…

      Yours Truly,
      Cecilia

    • Grace

      Dear Josephine,

      I really liked the news report as well I did mine with Bella. My eruption didn’t really turn out well because it took so long and the tomato sauce did not make the lava red at all.

      yours truly,
      Grace

  7. Brenda

    Dear Five white and Miss Azzopardi,

    My favourite research was to find a prayer about disaters because i like to pray for the sick and hurt people. I enjoyed erupting my volcano because i can see the lava come out and exploed. It was so aswsome. I loved it.

    Kind Regards,
    Brenda

    • Josephine

      Dear Brenda,

      That’s was sweet of you praying for the people who are in or survived in a natural disasters and erupting our volcano and seeing the lava out looks really cool.

      Kind regards,
      Josephine

    • Dear Brenda,

      Erupting the volcano was so awesome! The lava came out very fast for me 🙂

      Sincerely,
      Cecilia

  11. Grace

    Dear miss Azzopardi and 5W,

    Making the volcanoes was really fun I also enjoyed getting my hands all sticky because of the PVA glue. It was really fun erupting them as we’ll though my one didn’t work that well.

    Sincerely,
    Grace

    • Amy

      Dear Grace,

      I agree making our volcanoes are very fun but the pva glue was very sticky i had some on my test.

      Sincerely,
      Amy

  12. Bella

    Dear Five White,

    I had a great time last term. My favourite research activity was when I made my collage, because I go to be creative with putting photos in different places and having fun. My favourite part of erupting my volcanoe was when we mixe all the ingredients and made it erupt. Did you have fun last term?

    Yours truly
    Bella
