LF: To use my senses to describe a setting.


Today, we are going to use our writing lenses to describe Pompeii.  What can you see, hear, smell and touch?  What does the city look like?  What sounds can you hear?  You may find the video below useful.  Try to include as many of the writing lenses as you can in your description.  You do not need to write in full sentences, you are just collecting a bank of words and phrases at this stage.  Remember, you are still writing in the past tense.


Lightening flashed and thunder roared

Hot rocks burnt my feet

Smell of sulphur

Mount Vesuvius roared

Ear-piercing screams

Dogs howled and children cried
