Cross Country Recount Writing

First it was the Year 5 girls, Next it was the Yr 7 girls, come on up girls “Yelled Mr Jacobson.” We walked up slowly I felt sooo Nervous and uncomfortable. We lined up on the starting line. Mr Burt was holding two pieces of wood to Clap and to start our running.

Then Mr Burt said “Are you Ready girls” yes as we answered back quickly. On your mark get set, Bang as the two pieces of wood clapped together. We all sprinted as fast as we could. I was so nervous because I thought that I will be coming last place but I was leading behind fast girls.

 After that I was catching up to the girls who was in front of me. “Come on Girls” said the teachers. I jogged and jogged until it was the second lap. I felt like I was going to faint. I was huffing and puffing while I was running.

 Finally I was nearly at the end of the line. I was power walking with my 2 friends and wanted to sprint at the finish line. There goes my dad calling out my name to sprint. I sprinted as fast as I could, my friends was behind me and they caught up to me. They were pushing me to get ahead but the finish line was right in front of us. We made it I came a tie with my friend.

 At last I was very very proud of myself and was proud of all of the girls who did the Cross Country run. I was sooo happy because I came 7th witch is in the top 10.  I hope you enjoy my Recount writing and please leave me a comment

  1. Congratulations on your Top 10 finish Rowana! That is definitely something to be proud of! I would love to see you use some figurative language in your recount. Perhaps you could add something for your future readers to enjoy :-)
