My School Day: Reading Practice 4 (recount)

By | March 21, 2016

My mother got me ready for school then I had to wait for her to brush my hair and place every strand in just the perfect position. I had to show her my shoes that I had cleaned the night before and my school bag had to be neatly put on my shoulder before I could get near the door.

Only after my mother was totally satisfied would I be allowed to rush out of the front door. I would leave home at 8 am on the dot and make my way down the lane. After a walk of about 700 meters I would be able to see the tall steeple of the school.

The playground would be full in the summer and the noise would make me want to rush into the yard and get into a good game of football before the bell went.
