The pupils from Year 3 have been studying volcanoes in their Geography classes and were looking forward to discovering even more interesting facts on a school field trip.
The children were fascinated with the volcano simulator room. The noise and special effects demonstrated how frightening it must have been all those years ago when the volcano erupted. It was so realistic that the children needed to practise a relaxation exercise after the experience.
They listened attentively to the guide who showed them around the museum, asking lots of questions and chatting to her about the different aspects of volcanoes.
As we entered the National Park the children were enthralled with the story of the nomad who lived at the top of the crater with his pet camel. After enjoying the earth, fire and water experiments the children sat around the window where the art work dedicated by Cesar Manrique to the nomad is displayed. They enjoyed lunch and the day finished with a Timanfaya Park drawing competition.
