The Running Man

At school we had to write a 100 word challenge where you have to make up a story with the prompt that your teacher gives you but you have to remember to use 100 words only.  That's why it's called the hundred word challenge.


My Reflection:

It was easy to think of the story because the man was running and a few days ago there was this video released called the running man challenge so that's why I named it that. I had to write what the man could hear , smell and feel.  I also had to write what the dog was thinking about.Now I plan to do a better one with more interesting words or sentences like a simile. "The dog was running as fast as a racing car".

WALT use the structure of a recount

Going To Vikasni’s   House!!!


In the weekends on a sunny Saturday morning  I went to my best friend Vikasni’s house.


 First Her mum came to pick me up at 10:50.  Vikasni and I were  so…... excited.


Next When we reached Vikasni’s big house. Vikasni gave me a tour of her whole house and introduced me to all of her
family members and her cute little bird Ivy.


After that we sat down and played with Ivy for a while.  I patted him and he got scared and so did I but then we Both got use to each other.


Soon we watched Vikasni’s favourite TV show called Winx.  While we were watching Winx Vikasni’s mum gave us some delicious butter flavored popcorn which we really enjoyed.  She also gave us some fish fingers and some hash browns which we actually didn't eat.


Then we played Skylanders on Vikasni’s cool Xbox.  I kept on changing my characters.  We also paused the game and went to get some delicious watermelon green and white bubble gum.  We also played sport games on Vikasni’s Xbox.  The games were like soccer, volleyball, table tennis and some other game which I really loved.  It really got me sweaty.


Later on we both did some colouring ,in a monkey.  It was really fun.  I finished my colouring before Vikasni.  I was really happy.


Lastly we both went into Vikasni’s room.  It was very pretty.  We watched some videos and also listened to some songs that we loved.


Unfortunately it was time to go home.  I grabbed my chromebook and  Vikasni grabbed us some crispy biscuits that we ate on the way to my house.  When we reached our house Vikasni came inside my house and I showed her my whole house.  It was time for  Vikasni to go.  I felt happy.
