To help them learn a bit more about magma, lava and igneous rock, Mr Shaw helped them conduct an experiment using candle wax, sand and water.

The children had a layer of wax, a layer of sand and a layer of water in a beaker, representing an underwater volcano. When heated up, the wax eventually broke free from the underneath the sand and floated on top of the water, hardening and representing how when lava cools and hardens it becomes igneous rock.

The children really enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to get their goggles on again soon!
