The city of Pompeii stood proudly on the top of a hillside, overlooking the sparkling bay of Naples. The bustling streets were filled with people going about their day. Noise spilled out from the popular taverns and shops while busy tradesmen could be heard haggling in the streets. The endless sunshine cast a warm glow over the terracotta buildings and the hills beyond. In the distance, the giant Mount Vesuvius loomed. It stood guarding the city and stretched high into the clouds. Have you ever heard of a more special place?

Today, we will be reading and learning the following setting description text. 

 

The city of Pompeii stood proudly on the top of a hillside, overlooking the sparkling bay of Naples. The bustling streets were filled with people going about their day. Noise spilled out from the popular taverns and shops while busy tradesmen could be heard haggling in the streets. The endless sunshine cast a warm glow over the terracotta buildings and the hills beyond. In the distance, the giant Mount Vesuvius loomed. It stood guarding the city and stretched high into the clouds. Have you ever heard of a more special place?

 

Down at the harbourside, large, heavy pots of oil and spices were carried to and from ships. Some men carried the pots on their head, while others had them tied to their back. Throughout the day, different ships came and went in the busy trading port. Alongside the loading and unloading of goods, weary fishermen pulled heaving sacks of wriggling fish from their nets. A small huddle of young children crowded round to see the catch of the day.

 

The famous forum sat in the centre of the town. It was a large square, surrounded by stone pillars, with a marketplace on one side and important buildings on the other. Creeping plants wound their way around the tall columns and decorated the balconies above. Many people were gathered in the central square to meet friends and buy food from the stalls. The smell of freshly baked bread mingled with smoked mackerel and exotic spices. Happiness spread across everyone’s faces and people chatted excitedly.

 

All of a sudden, there was a peculiar rumble. The stone columns creaked. The awnings flapped. The buildings quivered. The bright blue sky turned a dusty grey. Birds loudly tweeted and flew quickly overhead. What was happening?
