We put ourselves in the shoes of Tranio and Livia from our wonderful text Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit. We produced some shared writing to start us off and then planned and wrote a recount of what it felt like to be leaving behind our beloved home in Pompeii. We described the 5 senses, thought carefully about how we would be feeling and portrayed these ideas in our fabulous first person recounts.
Here is just one of those amazing pieces of writing!
Read on for some quotes from our recounts.
