We have started this topic by looking at what are Volcanoes? In Geography, we have been labeling different parts of a Volcano and looking at the functions.




In English, we have focused on Mount Vesuvius. We have been researching this particular Volcano and created a timeline based on the events that happened during the eruption in 79AD. Reading Pliny's letter about his experience of witnessing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius has been extremely interesting!
