An explosive day of education saw pupils learn about volcanoes at Eton End School.
The event, which took place on Wednesday (Feb7), was organised as part of the Datchet school’s Able, More Able and Talented initiative.
Youngsters had the chance to inspect some valuable artefacts from Eton College including a fragment from the collection of volcanologist William Hamilton.
They also worked together to navigate their way around a lava flow outside and had to build temporary shelters after their homes had been lost to an erupting volcano.
Other activities included a mathematical challenge and a code-breaking task.
Pupils from Eton Wick First School, Eton Porny First School and Colnbrook Primary School also took part in the event.
Zoe Logan, head of nursery, said: “It was wonderful to see the children from different schools intermix confidently.”
