Tornado in South Auckland
A tragic natural disaster happened in South Auckland. A tornado has struck, and has killed a road worker and injured 2 others. It happened at around 8:30 am on Saturday morning. People have lost their houses, water supplies, electric supplies etc. It is very unfortunate that a person has died, but it is very lucky that everyone else is safe and alive.

The Colosseum of Rome is one of the 7 wonders of the world! It was huge, fitting 50,000 people once finished. There are so many fascinating things about it, but I will be telling you about the past, present and gladiators of the Colosseum.
The Colosseum was ordered to be built by emperor Vespasian. Even though he died, the Colosseum was opened years later by his son emperor Titus. It was built by thousands of slaves and with stone, bricks and concrete. When built it held shows such as: battling gladiators staged sea battles and reenactments.
The Colosseum is the ancient stadium of Rome. It is a tourist attraction, as it is the largest amphitheatre built! Even though it is partially ruined it is nearly 2000 years old. It was 620 feet long 512 feet wide 158 feet tall 12 story building when first built!
Battling Gladiators was the most popular attraction of the Colosseum. The first games lasted 100 days, with 1000’s of bears, bulls (etc.) being killed. They didn’t only kill animals, but also battled each other (to the death). Successful gladiators became celebrities for their success.
The Colosseum is an artefact and prized possession of Rome. Even though it's old it's still standing, proving that it was built well. I would love to visit the Colosseum one day!
