This half term in English, our learning will be based around the book ‘Escape from Pompei’ by Christina Balit. We will focus in on the literary devices the author uses to build a setting at the beginning of a story. We will then learn how to use these skills ourselves in order to write our own setting descritpions. We will then move onto some non-fiction work, looking at how to build up a non-chrobological report. We will use our learning in history about the Ancient Romans to write our own non-chroological reports about life within the Roman Empire.
