The other day we did a recount writing on our holidays. This was my recount On the last day of the first week of holidays. me and my mum traveled on bus and train to the Melbourne museum. This was a surprise to my cousins because their Mum (my aunty)  did not tell where we were going but they did know that we were meeting up. We were secretly going to meet them on the second last box of the train and went to the museum. And had lots of fun.

On the holidays I went to the gold coast and byron bay it was really fun the place that I stayed at had a 16 metre pool and in the front yard there was cows and bulls and we walked around byron bay a lot and we saw people with no shoes on so my mum made these things called barefoot sandals she crochet them. Then when we came home we had about 2 other weeks then we went back to school. The first week of school the year fours got their pen licence and today I’m getting filmed by ABC ME I am sooooo nervous. We now have dance fever come every Wednesday. Dance fever are two guys that are teaching us all different types of dances last Wednesday we learnt yoga. They played really weird music in the background but it was still fun. And that’s all from me!
