Recovery
Is having difficulty
Scared people being horrified
Know how to survive
By Noah and Dylan
Matamata Primary School

Fire services helps trapped people
In need
Risks are dangerous
Students help local people
Tables move
Ambulances sirens scream
In shock
Damages to peoples’ valuables.

Definitely scary.
Instantly go to safety.
Scared people all around you.
After disaster help people who need help.
Seriously damaged houses.
Terrified of what’s going to happen next.
Escaping the moving house.

Trees coming down
Earthquake was very big

Add your acrostic poems here.
Damage to most buildings and homes

Information to help us survive the next one.

Survival kits are needed for injured people

A good lesson learnt

Some homes are safe for people to go back home

The earthquake was 7.1 magnitude

Earthquake shook many lives

Roads have got cracks in them so they are closed

By Madison and Amy
Matamata Primary School










Earthquakes happen every year.

Alarms go on,

Rumbling noises scared people,

This time no one died.

Houses are badly damaged

Quakes affect many lives.

Unsafe places are closed,

After shocks continue,

Kids are scared.

Emergency kits are needed.

Richter Scale
Roaring Earth

Irrelevant

Cracks in the ground

Hell breaks loose

Teetering houses

Earthquake!!!

Really need survival kits

Scary stuff

Christchurch hit

Aftershocks rolling in

Looters everywhere

Eternal it seems

Matamata Primary School.


After shocks are always happening

Frightening thing to be in

Terrible thing to be in

Electricity going off

Richter scale changing

Shaking everywhere

Houses are falling

Officers helping people

Crumbling buildings

Kids staying away from school
