Tamaku's recount

"Are we all ready?" Mum said as we finished packing. The clock had just struck three,that was when we had to leave for the airport to go to Rarotonga.

Firstly,we got in the car to leave for the airport,it took us a long time, minutes after that I moaned to my dad the driver, "Are we there yet?" "NO!" my dad shouted.

Finally,we had arrived at the airport, Alex and I were just having fun outside with the trolley and mum and dad were in the airport paying for the tickets.

After that we got our tickets and were ready to go on the plane. We were all on the plane,I was feeling pretty excited,me and my dad got a portable dvd player with some movies,I watched Mr Beans holiday it was pretty funny and my dad watched fantastic 4 silver surfer. After my movie was finished I joined with my dad and watched his movie,then I fell asleep.ZZZ,suddenly I opened my eyes and we had arrived to Rarotonga.

Natalie's picnic recount

Walht write a personal recount.

“Yipee!” I said, it was Friday afternoon the day of the middle school picnic and all of the middle school classes where there. We all sat at the far side of field waiting to start the tug-of-war.

Firstly ,we came to the far end of the field . We put out the picnic blankets and had a snack before the tug-of-war started. When it started Miss. Cameron began to do face painting and we where up against room8 and we won!

Then the other classes had their turns and then it was our turn and we where up against room7 this time. As we where pulling we all fell over and we had lost the game it didn’t matter though, we still all had a wonderful time.

After that it was time to pack-up and go back to class. Next week for golden time I would want to have a pet day or have a treasure with clues. Cause last time we had a treasure hunt it was really fun.
