These are some fabulous cinquain poems and a piece of recount writing from Room 1.....
When the earthquake came, my brother, my mum and I were out.
My mum went into the fish and chip shop and my brother and I were waiting in our car.
I felt our car shaking.
It was a big one!
I was scared because I thought the car was going to fall.
Smashing, moving, jiggling
It was the biggest!
Smashing, crashing, bashing
Buildings came down
Crashing, moving, jiggling
Some books fell down
Rumbling, shaking, crumbling
Wellington buildings often collapsed
Wildly smashing, crashing
Buildings came down like a giant’s foot
A stomping movement!
