Tongan Spit Fires

Spitfires were introduced in The Second World War against Germany in 1939.

They had to prepare fast, they figured out the fastest way to raise money during the war so they danced, had concerts and special market days. There was a lot of money raised but the Queen, Queen Salote wanted her people to raise more money.

Long time ago Spitfires were the best planes in Europe. If they raised five pounds the could buy a plane for their British allies. The queen donated 10 percent of her income and so did the officials and the government.On the first day of March in 1942 the British RAF (Royal Air Force) got a special delivery from the Tongan people, it was a new Spit Fire with Queen Salote’s name on it.

From that time more money was raised there was a second spit fire was presented in November 1943. The second was called Prince Tungi number 2 after Queen Salote’s husband.

My Fantastic Comic Collage

Since last week Tuesday Mrs Grant has been teaching Room 9 how to create a Comic Collage for our cybersmart. We selected four photos of our class  to make a comic collage. We wrote ideas that matched our photo inside call outs.
