What is a recount?
Choose from any of the activities.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkpvbdm

recount is when you describe an event that you’ve experienced to someone who wasn’t there.  You could recount anything: a day at school, a sports game you took part in or even a dream you had.

How to write a recount:

1. Write in the first person (I, me, my) because it happened to you.  For example: I felt excited.

2. Use the past tense because it has already happened.  For example: It was the biggest fish I had ever seen!

3. Write in chronological order (this means the order in which events actually happened). Use adverbs of time to show this, such as: firstly, next, then and finally.

4. Use descriptive words and expanded noun phrases to help your reader imagine what happened.  For example: The huge, silver fish was shiny and slippery.

5. Focus on the most exciting parts. You don’t need to include all the boring details.
