As part of our work on natural disasters the children in Year 6 researched the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD. They explored historical evidence uncovered by archaeologists in Pompeii and Herculaneum as well as translated letters from Pliny who wrote at the time. Children formulated opinions about what impact the volcanic eruption had based on the sources presented and drawing on their new knowledge of volcanoes.
During literacy we have also revisited the biography of Guy Fawkes and explored the build up, context and legacy of the Gunpowder Plot. Children built on their existing knowledge of Guy Fawkes to explore concepts of religion, politics and related elements of social history.
