At twenty six minutes after nine this morning we had an earthquake practice. It was really important to us to practice as there was a terrible earthquake, of magnitude 7, in Christchurch just over a year ago and lots of people were unprepared. We haven't felt an earthquake before so Mrs Nicholson put on a soundtrack to help us visualise the experience. We all stopped, covered and held until we knew it was safe.
This last youtube video we used during our drill so we could hear the sounds of an earthquake to help us visualise what it would be like.
