Half Term Recount

I hope everybody has had a fantastic half term holiday and is ready for the half term ahead at school.

I would like you to write a recount of what you did in the holidays, just like we would do in our books in class!

In case we have forgotten, a recount is a piece of writing that we use to explain what we have done.

Try and include these writing secrets:

  • Adverbial starters for time. On Monday, I went to the cinema with my friend to see The Lego Movie.
  • Who/Which extension. I went to Ben’s house which is just down the road from school.
  • 2A. I ate a delicious, tempting strawberry ice cream.

Remember to include capital letters, full stops and commas. There will be a prize for the best recount.

Good luck!

    On Sunday I went to someone’s christening at my church and after that nearly everyone who went to the christening went to Heaton Park! At Heaton Park I went on the train that took us all around, got Ice – cream and brought a long,hairy,orange worm also that can be used as a snake and tail. My brother went to play basketball with the other big kids I couldnt go because I was sitting on the train when they left. All of the dads were playing cricket. After that we had a big picnic on the soft,green grass. Finally, we all took a picture and went home. But I didnt go straight home because the people who made one of the foods asked us to take it home but i was a really big tub and my mum said we cant eat that much. So that the food wouldnt waist we took it round to some people’s houses and they took some. Only after that I could get home!
