Read All About It!

Destruction and chaos hit the Roman city of Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted unexpectedly. 

This half-term, we have been reading 'Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit. It is about a young boy called Tranio and his friend Livia who manage to escape the tragedy at Pompeii. 

We have used this text to write our very own newspaper articles about the historic event. Take a look at some of the published reports.
