Pompeii Erupts!

Please enter an introduction for your blog post here.

Our first week of the new term has flown by and we are about to start Week 2!  Last week we began our new text Escape from Pompeii and the children were amazed at the impact of the eruption of Vesuvius.  This week we will be investigating the devastation of Pompeii from the eruption in our Topic sessions to enrich our understanding and give us the opportunity to add depth to our writing in English.

Also this week, we will be beginning our eruption dance in PE so watch this space for some action photos of our preliminary work towards an Adamson-choreographed dance which will represent not only the eruption of Vesuvius itself but also the reactions and emptions of the local people.  As the term goes on we will refine our performance and we may even add in some props for extra dramatic effect!

Have a happy week everyone!
