Fragile Earth

English

As part of our Fragile Earth project, we have been investigating the eruption of Mount Vesuvius which happened in 79AD.  In English, we will be writing a newspaper report about the eruption. To begin, we looked at the features of a newspaper report by reading a variety of newspaper reports which then generated our S2S. We cut things out of the newspaper reports as examples to go alongside our S2S.
