The Amazing Running Day

As I stepped in the school grounds I wanted to get changed.
On a cloudy Friday we had athletics. When the noisy bell rang I was excited. I had this funny felling in my body, but its hard to explain. We sort of shared chants with Keas, when we sat down I was nervous.

Miss G started talking through the microphone, she was as loud as a lions roar. She started calling out the rules and instruction for athletics, she started calling out ages,one by one. When it was my turn I had butterflies in my stomach. As I went up my arms were shaking but once I was up there it stopped. I got up and dID every thing Mrs Pole told me to do. When Miss Pole banged the blocks together I got a fright. I started running as fast as I could, I tried to catch up to Ondre but unfortunately I came second.

The moment had arrived for lunch time, we had an hour of lunch time. I was so glad I could eat, I had $10.00, I shared it amongst me and my friend Ondre. We bought lots of sausages then I went to play but l had to leave early, I can’t tell you why because its complicated.


  1. Great recount Kahlanie, it is quite scary when you have to do athletics and you were able to paint that picture with your words. Well done.

  2. Love the story, particularly the image of Miss G's lion's roar! I know the end is complicated, but it adds to the mystery of the story. Well done!
