My Inquiry- Why do earthquakes happen?

-Earthquakes are usually caused when rocks underground suddenly break along a fault.

-Earthquake-like seismic waves can also be caused by explosions underground.

-During the earthquake the plates or blocks of rocks start moving and they continue to move until they get stuck again.

-After a while, the rocks  break because of the pressure that's built up.

-When the rocks break the earthquake occurs.

-Sometimes you won't be able to feel the earthquake.

-The rocks are pushing against each other but are not moving.

-The concrete breaks when two plates are rubbed against each other and start to stick a little bit.

Maori Week

Tame's mum read a legend The Fish of Maui to us during the Maori week. We loved listening to the story. Even Tame's baby sister was super quiet and a fantastic listener! Tame's mum also helped us with our legend art.  She helped Latai in drawing the Tekoeko of the whare. A special thanks from Lupe and Latai to her.

In term 2 Room 10 went to Otara pools once a week to learn swimming. We enjoyed every bit of it, right from the bus ride to the swim in the nice warm water. We used to look forward to every Friday for our swimming lesson. 

Our Zoo trip

Room 10 were blessed to have such awesome parent
helpers. We wouldn't have done without them. 

We listened carefully to one of the zoo keepers who took
us around the giraffe, zebra and ostrich enclosures. 

Let us introduce our parents. One on the left is J'zyah's mum, Tame's aunty is in the middle and

on the far right is Lavinea's mum. Thanks for coming and having a wonderful time with us at the zoo.
