For this lesson, look carefully at these pages from the book.

There are no words but they show the journey across the sea.


Your task today is to write a recount of that journey.

It is up to you whether you want to write the recount as a story or a diary entry.


We have written many recounts but if you would like a refresher of the key features, follow the link below.

Then, start to plan your writing by looking through these lenses.

What do you notice, hear, feel, touch, smell?


Now think about if you can add extra detail or engage the reader by using these lenses.

Before you start to write your ideas, think about how you are going to structure your sentences using these lenses.

Remember, to structure your writing into paragraphs.


When you are happy with your recount, send it to us as part of your daily email.
