You are going to imagine that you were a witness to the Mount Vesuvius eruption in Pompeii, like Pliny the younger.

Using you learning from this week - watching the video, reading Pliny the Younger's letters and a timeline of events (attached below), plan a letter that you would write to tell a historian what happened.

 

When writing a plan, use bullet points and remember to write in the order that the events happened (chronological order).

 

For example:

 

  • Woke up at 7am and headed to the kitchen for breakfast.
  • Went to the bakery
  • Ground was trembling
  • Mum was doing laundry whilst Dad was at the port
  • Heard a bang
  • Neighbour's dog was barking
  • Started to feel nervous
