We are learning to write recounts in English. First we learned a recount using the text Katie in London.
We searched for the features of a recount – time order, past tense, noun phrases, proper nouns and
Then we went on a Pirate Adventure with Captain Long Hair.
First we sailed the seven seas,
Next we watched a beautiful, golden sunset,
After that we crossed the shark infested ocean,
Then we survived a ferocious storm,
Finally we reached a deserted treasure island and searched for two items of treasure.
When we got back to school we made treasure maps of our adventure to help us remember the time order and help us with our writing.
It was lots of fun. I wonder where our next adventure will take us.
