Room Ten at Wairakei School in Christchurch

Room 3 were so worried for the people in Christchurch after the earthquake. We were especially worried for all the children. 
Last week we wrote some comments and questions to some very brave Year 1/2 'Super Kids' from Wairakei School in Christchurch.

On Monday we received a great surprise! 
The children replied to our questions. 

Check out  Room 10's blog at.....

Here are our shared questions and answers

Thank you everyone!!

What to do in an Earthquake

We had our first earthquake practice today. 
What a great job we did. 
No one screamed, laughed, ran around the room or went crazy. 
We quickly dropped, got under our tables and held on.
