Download our popular Escape from Pompeii Literacy Planning Pack for Y3/4.
This is a ten-lesson unit of work based around the book 'Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit, based on the 2014 National Curriculum. It works well alongside topics about The Romans or volcanoes.
The ten lessons in this unit aim to give children the opportunity to read and listen to the Escape from Pompeii story a number of times. In the first week, children will engage with the text through extensive discussion, drama and even creating a parachute volcanic eruption in order to increase their familiarity with the story. They will have the opportunity to articulate ideas about the text using an increasingly varied vocabulary. There is also a grammar focus on using powerful verbs and a chance to develop thesaurus skills.
In the second week, pupils will plan their own story based on the structure of Escape from Pompeii and they will then have the opportunity to draft, edit and present their final narrative.
The literacy objectives covered in this unit are:
To use sensory descriptions
To use a thesaurus to improve my writing
To perform a poem as a group
To use powerful verbs
To prepare a short drama piece based on a text
To write a descriptive recount
To make a story plan
To write my own narrative
To edit my writing
To make decisions about how to present my writing
