about the rata

After reading about what Rata Street School recommends to help students/people who have experienced an earthquake, what would you recommend for people in our school? Think of five things you suggest for Tamaki Primary School.

  1. I suggest we get prepared for an earthquake.
  2. We should all practice drop,cover and hold.
  3.  We should Make sure your school buildings safer to be in during earthquakes.
  4.  Go home and  discuss with your about how to be prepared when an earthquake is happening.
  5. All ways practice your drop,cover and hold.Auckland helped me


Your task for this clip is to write a summary of it (that means, what was it about? What happened?)
The challenge for this, is you must use as few words as possible, but still have all the ideas in it.
Your teacher will be checking it to make sure you haven’t left out any ideas.
You must talk about
  • What is an earthquake?
  • How are they made?
  • Talk about one example - e.g. the earthquake in Japan and how it affected people
  • What can people do to help minimise the damage of earthquakes (look at the last ‘fact’)

Start here:A Earthquake is when roads get destroyed in a line and houses prank dawn the Earthquake is when big,giant, rock then it hits a montine then the montines branks then some rocks and dirt and grass comes down and onto the road.Earthquakes can make you die

Today, students from TPS had an education day called EOTC. In Tamaki Primaryś name, EOTC stands for Education outside the classroom.  Today the activities that we all participated in was Bowling and Lazer strike. It was fun because I was playing with my friends and we were shooting each other on the Laser Strike. What I liked about our trip we made is that I was trying to be respectful and helpful for my teacher Miss Sharma because it is her birthday tode. Here are some photos above from where we were.

Today the students from TPS went off to the Monetary Howick movies we all watched,  'The secret life of pets'.The movies was about  a dog named Max who had a new house with this Girl called Kate. One day Kate came with a big dog called Duke and he was so angry that he wanted the bed that Max had. The favorite part I liked was when they went on the Truck and crashed everywhere.
Today we were outside having fun sliding  on the  slide then we get bucket and wet people because it was sunny and it was a beautiful day for me it was good because everyone was having a good day instead of having fights and being  silly we were just having a good time of EOTC week.
