Egg Friend Race

WALT: Think about the purpose and reader by planning my recount.

Can you imagine how crazy my teacher is, Well I definitely can. First chicken flavoured worms, a walking blindfolded test and now this. An egg friend race. How crazy can my teacher get.

As the Class Six literacy group started all walking into class we all knew that something was up with Mr Goodwin he had a chingy face on and a nice sweet voice. He had told us that we were going to be doing something different as questions started floating around in the room he had told us shocking news. “Class Six you are going to be adopting and naming your very own friend I thought to myself that’s impossible we can’t be adopting a child. He gave us extra information and I finally got it we were adopting our very own egg friend. He told us that we were to take good care of our friends that would be easy, then he had told us extra shocking news I couldn’t believe him.

We had to name our egg friend Peggy, before all this we had to get into partners to look after our egg friend something else is up I thought it’s just an egg we don’t need two of us. Mr Goodwin had leaded us around the school to the park why were we going there? I had noticed that Mr Goodwin was holding a bunch of spoons in his pocket that’s when I clicked we were doing the egg race. What was horrifying about it was that we had to do our egg race at the park a race that no eggs want to be part of cracked eggs, split eggs that's an eggs worst nightmare. I could just see myself dropping my egg friend now I know why we were told to take good care of our egg friends.

We were told by our teacher the instructions and each given a spoon one partner was to stay at one end and one on the other end. Your first partner started with the spoon and had to get to the other end carefully without cracking or dropping our friend then your other partner would do the same thing on the other side. We knew what we were doing and before we knew it the race had started eggs everywhere I noticed I was taking the lead and that gave me a little more encouragement. I gave it to my partner and it was her turn. We heard a crack but kept going and the race was finally over.

The egg friend race was over and it really wasn't that bad because our egg friend Peggy was safe. We really did take care of our egg friend.
