Today you are going to draft your diary entry as a citizen of Pompeii when Mt. Vesuvius erupted.  


We have included a template for you to use and a check list to ensure that you are using the correct features for the genre of diary writing.


It might be a good idea to watch the video again (we have attached this below) and remember to refer to all the notes you have written over the past two days to describe what happens when a volcano erupts and how Pompeii changed throughout the eruption when you write in your diary.


Again, because this is a draft, you do not need to submit this planning stage to your teacher, but if you think you would like their feedback on your ideas before you attempt your final BIG WRITE of YEAR 3 tomorrow, please feel free to email your ideas to your teacher before 12pm today so that they can feed back to you.


Good luck.
