Good morning year 4! Welcome back and we hope you had a relaxing half-term break!

Today in geography we are going to ask you to think about the following:

Does Britain have volcanos?

Activity

To answer this question you will need to read through this blog post and answer these questions in your topic books, on paper or on a computer.

  1. How are volcanos formed?
  2. What causes an eruption?
  3. What are the three types of volcanos?
  4. Where can you find volcanos?

Extension

Jenny says that Britain has inactive volcanos in Scotland, like Ben Nevis. 

Carl argues that there are no volcanos in Britain because it is not on a fault line of tectonic plates.
