In room 9 we have been learning how to create a piece of explanation writing. These need to explain how or why something happens. We have made a book of our texts that explain how a spider forms their web - come in and have a read! In the meantime, here is an example of another explanation.
How a Tornado Forms
A tornado is made out of wind. It can go really fast. When the ground is really warm the sun turns in to a cloud then it rains and makes thunder storm. After that turns to a tornado. The wind goes upwards. The wind speed is so fast. The wind starts to go faster and faster. It can spin faster like spiral. So tornados can be dangerous and cause a lot of damage but luckily they don't destroy New Zealand.
