A tsunami is a huge large wave that destroys cities and kills thousands and thousands of people.
A tsunami is a large ocean wave usually caused by an underwater earthquake or a volcanic explosion. Tsunamis are giant waves caused by undersea earthquakes, landslides or volcanic eruptions.
Most tsunamis occur in the Pacific Ocean along with the Ring of fire and they can happen any where in any ocean. A tsunami causes lots of damage. They bust buildings, cars ,cities ,and  they  even  kill people..

Here is my weekend recount

         Ratu 1st November
          Going to Auckland.
On a lovely Friday my aunty and sister and cousin and I went to  Auckland. We stopped in Wellsford to have a break, a stretch and a toilet. After we did all that we got to have a delicious fluffy hot chocolate and a donut. The fluff was as hot as the sun and the doughnut was more golden than golden syrup. But I said, “There is so much sugar on this doughnut. Sugar is our enemy.” I started to laugh.
Then we  continue our travels to our destination.  
Finally we arrived at Auckland. It was starting to get dark and there were no stars in the sky.

But as we drove around the corner - BOOM! There were lots and lots of bright glittering lights. It was like God was guiding our way in Auckland.  Finally we arrived at our destination. It  was a long trip but I never fell asleep. Haaaaaaaaaaa!  “I feel tired.” I said to myself. When I stepped inside zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! I fell asleep. In my dream I said, “I had a lovely night with my aunty and my cousin.” and sister.

Ripper rugby Tournament.
It was a sunny day outside. I was excited to go to the Ripper rugby Tournament in Kaikohe with my friends. When I got to school I said to myself, “Did I pack some  water and food? Then I checked in my bag. I had food but not water. I told Mrs Paraha that I had no water. Mrs Paraha told Whaea Lisa that I had no water and then Lisa got me a water bottle from Whaea Hana.
When we got to the Kaikohe Rugby Fields I felt nervous because I thought it might be too hard to rip a tag.
It was fun playing Ripper rugby because I ripped a tag. It wasn’t hard. I just had to run really fast. I ripped 11 tags in one game. I felt proud of myself and delighted at the way I played.
It was a fantastic day at the Ripper Rugby tournament.
I enjoyed playing Ripper Rugby.

At the Pools.
On a nice sunny day my family and I  went to the pools
at Northland College.
First we packed some food for us to take there.
Next we got our swimming togs ready for us to have a swim in.
Then we hopped in the car.
When we got there I put on my togs. I ran and bombed off the side of the pool and the water went BOOM!
Then it splashed my brother. Then he jumped off too.
When he jumped in he told me the water was cold as ice.
Then I told him to duck his head under the water. He said ok.
Then Ariaana jumped in. I swam to the other side and then I swam back.
Then my mum said, Come on, let’s go home.

We had an awesome day.
