Earthquakes

Did you know that fault lines don't actually go throughout the whole of New Zealand? I do NOW
Did you know that Liquefaction is when the waste and water pipes break and leave liquid all over the ground? I do NOW
Did you know that there's such thing as a Richter scale that rates the earthquake? I do NOW

Just two days ago I didn't have a clue about earthquakes but thanks to the NZ Shakeout I learnt that Three simple things can save your life-DROP, COVER , HOLD! I also learnt that geologists study the earth and that there are four main layers of the earth and when Deformation occurs it is when the ground gets uneven. People are more prepared then before since the Christchurch Earthquake.

Thank you for the shakeout

Term 4

Hi everyone

I hope you had a great holiday and you are all ready for our busy term ahead.  
We have 2 new additions to our classroom that has been long overdue.  I will leave it up to you what you name them.

I have a new challenge this term that I would like to introduce.  The aim is to get your parents to visit our class blog, your individual blogs and to leave a comment.  I will keep a running tally as to who gets the most comments from their parents. You all know what quality comments are and I wonder if could teach your parents or we put up a video to explain what a quality comment is? or we could have an afternoon where we invite the parents in to show them.  We will discuss this week how we can achieve this.  What do you think?

I am looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.

Your teacher Mrs P
