I am reporting to you live on Channel 5. There has been a devastating Tsunami that has happened in Japan. The waves were gigantic and it was terrifying for everyone. The hospitals are trying to help the injured but for some it is too late. Lots of people are looking for their friends and family. They are sad because their loved ones have not shown up yet.
The waves of the tsunami were getting bigger and bigger. People have tried to escape by bikes, cars and other vehicles. Most are just praying for safety.
There have been boats and objects going past on the angry waves. Houses with people still inside them have been swept away by the powerful water. Bricks are falling off the buildings that have been devastated by the tsunami. I am seeing people everywhere. There is alot of chaos and panic.

Thousands of people were racing to the tallest mountain. There has been a huge amount of water and it has gone everywhere. There is alot of chaos happening.
People have heard all kinds of things like big booming sounds and lots of banging noises. People are screaming and shouting. I have heard alot of people praying.
The waves crashing down are loud, loud like a roaring lion. People are scared. Some of them have tried to out run the gigantic waves but they weren't fast enough. They have been swept away.
The humungous, angry, violent waves has damaged almost everything. Cars, boats and buildings have been damaged. There have been damaged signs, power lines trees and houses.

It sounds like a lion roaring and a huge storm has also hit the city of Japan.
The damage was very destructive with cars and boats being swept away with people still inside them.

The tsunami has damaged lots of objects like houses, cars, boats, trucks and factories.The people think that the tsunami is very chaotic because it can cause alot of chaos.
When the tsunami happened, people ran to the top of their balconies and watched the tsunami overtake the city.

Tsunami Strikes Japan

On T.V one news a humongous Tsunami strikes Japan!

Rubbish are floating with the water. Dirt has been carried around. Stuff from houses have been destroyed. As many objects are destroyed the water is getting deeper and deeper. Buildings, power lines are fully damaged. Boats are crushed. Signs have got destroyed and so have cars. Water is spreading fast around this town.

The tsunami sounds like a lion roaring for his lost son. People are also holding their love ones very tight. You can see that people everywhere are frustrated with this tsunami and are praying that their loved ones are safe.

I think that it is important for people to think fast and smart when there is a tsunami because you can get killed if you are slow.

A Devastating Tsunami in Japan

Tonight on Nightline, we are reporting to you live from Japan about a tsunami.

The tsunami looks like total chaos. Cars were falling on the ground. Boats were crashing into houses. People are swept away from the big waves. It was a devastation!

We heard objects splashing into the enormous waves. People were screaming as the tsunami came. The tsunami sounded like a roaring lion. It damaged lots of stuff like buildings, cars and people's boats. Power lines and signs were crashing with people as well as trees.

People are not liking this dangerous tsunami. Everyone is trying to escape the tsunami. Kids are crying and screaming and parents are panicking to save their children. People are confused, sad and afraid.

I think that tsunamis are dangerous and powerful. It is also horrendous because it can destroy many lives and the environment.

Now that the tsunami has finished all you can see is everything floating sadly in the sea.

(This is my description that I wrote for my Writing test)

When a Tornado Strikes

When a tornado happened in the North Shore there were people flying up and cars went flying up too. There were people running from the tornado and people got hurt and went to the hospital so they could get better.
People felt sad because their houses got destroyed and there cars as well.

The tornado was spinning fast and there was chaos everywhere. People wee running, shouting and crying because of the strong wind and terrifying noises.

What I think about harakeke

Harakeke is a the Maori word for flax. I think harakeke is an amazing native plant. The scientific name for harakeke is Phormium Tenax. You can use harakeke to make many things like a mat, basket, bag or a fan.

Did you know that harakeke can be used as a medicine? This is why this plant is amazing because it heals many sicknesses like a toothache, earache, boils, wounds and many other sicknesses.

I think I would prefer using harakeke as a medicine than the medicine we get from the doctors. Why do I think this? Harakeke is free and you can use it to heal different types of sicknesses.

Information Report - Harakeke

Harakeke is a native plant. The scientific name for Harakeke is Phromium tenax.

Harakeke is green and it can remind people of hedgehog spikes. It is long and pointy. The inside blades are the young blades and they are protected by the outside blades.

Before you cut harakeke it is important to say a Karakia to bless the plant so that it can grow stronger. Say thank you to Tane Mahuta when you are saying your Karakia. If there are any left over harakeke you must put it under a bush.

Did you know harakeke heals many types of sicknesses? Harakeke can be used as a medicine. It heasls sicknesses like toothaches, earaches, boils sores and wounds.

I think harakeke is a good medicine because it respects the Maori culture and it heals many sicknesses.
