Athletics Day - Recount Writing

On Friday 14th November, we went to Grey Lynn Park to do Athletics. First we did tabloids. We get points for each activity. Next it was moning tea so we ate our food.

Then year 5 and 6 did a sprint. It was 800 meters. We did the race together. Miss Sepora called out, "on your mark, get set, go!" I came 13th in the sprint. Finally we walked back to the grass to watch the others race. I was cheering for my friends. Itwas really loud.

After that the teachers, Year 6 children and parents had races. The teachers came last, the children came first and the parents came second.

At the end of the day, the whole school walked back to school. I was hot and sweaty, tired, sleepy and thirsty, but it was a fun day.

Hi Tatsuki,
That was a great piece of writing. Where did your school have athletics? We don't have 800 metres that must have been a very long run?

Hi Tat,
Your recount is quite short but very good. I like the way you described how you felt at the end of the day. And I think athletics day was fun too.

P.S: are you sure the 800 meter race was a sprint?
