  • Escape from Pompeii!

    Published 18/10/21, by Richard Gunson

    This term we have moved on from writing a book review and creating rhyming poems and haikus inspired by 'The Pebble in my Pocket' to writing our own suspense narratives. We used the brilliant book 'Escape from Pompeii' as our inspiration and have used techniques to build suspense, such as ellipsis, short shocking sentences and show-not-tell. The results have been great and we look forward to sharing them with you soon.
