In literacy and topic Y6 have been looking at the horrible disaster of Mount Vesuvius. We have been reading books and been on the web to find as much data as we can, first of all we found the date of the incident (24th August AD79) then we looked at how much magma was in Vesuvius, and there was an amazing 3km of magma in the magma chamber! Then we looked at the ash cloud the covered Pompeii like a blanket. Then we looked at what came out of Vesuvius and rock and magma went flying up to the sky 3.5 times higher than Mount Everest,after that disaster Pompeii was ruined and most of Pompeii’s were gone.
I hope you enjoyed 🙂
