This term Asia are learning about natural disasters. On Monday we were doing our literacy work and suddenly a siren went off! This siren was telling us to go under the tables and look at the sheets that were stuck underneath. The paper said that Mount st Catherine was erupting!
We were told to write down what people might be feeling if they were in Winchester during the eruption. However,we were not allowed to just write down words like scared or frightened – we had to go into more detail!
Later on that day, we had children acting as different people such as the Mayor, a resident and a volcanolagist.They came in to be interviewed about the volcano experience and give facts about it.From the information that we got we planned to write a newspaper report on the disaster.
