WALT use poetic verse to recount an event we participated in.
The Cross Country event was usual enough; it had the
flags, the children, the helpers,
The short grass , and even
heaps of cones.
My friends, my classmates and I did what kids do -
Shivering at the start line
Running at an average speed,
Jumping over the little fense,
I almost over take the person in 5th,
Sprinting through the shadowy trees,
Sprinting over the finish line,
Puffing with excitement at finishing
Doing my best
based on the poem “The Church” by James K Baxter
