We have read and discussed 'Escape from Pompeii'. The text is about two children who experience a volcanic eruption, but are fortunate enough to survive.
"We thought the part when the volcano erupted was exciting because the two children didn't know what to do." Aga and Marika
"The part where everyone died felt sad, I didn't like that." Jamie
"Knuckle bones sounded like a really good game, I'd like to play that." Millie
