Escape from Pompeii

In English we have been looking at descriptive writing. We studied the book "Escape from Pompeii" by Christina Balit and looked at the different language used in the text to build up description. We created freeze frames of the book outside and then used these to help us with our own writing. We also watched videos of volcanoes erupting to help us build up our descriptive vocabulary.

We wanted to create a picture in the reader's mind. Have a look at some examples of our work here or we have some of our work displayed in the Team 2 corridor - come and have a look to see what we wrote!
