 This term we have been learning about volcanoes and earthquakes.

We have talked about the Earth's layers. (I hope the children impressed you with the Ferrero Rocher homework challenge?)

We have learned about Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii.  We watched the video below about a  day in Pompeii and what happened when Vesuvius erupted. The children were truly shocked, amazed and curious. The vocabulary the children got from watching the videos was brilliant!! The video also created a great class discussion about this event. We wrote a report about how the people might have felt during this historical disaster. The videos helped them to see how the people living there may have felt and what they may have gone through during the eruption! It enabled them to write some amazing reports.
