Yesterday you planned your recount. Today you are going to start writing it! Have a look at the lists you made yesterday and use this to help you write your recount. Both today and tomorrow will be spent writing your recount, so you don't have to finish it today. You could do half today and half tomorrow. 



A recount is written in the past tense.

A recount is written in chronological order (the order things happened in).

A recount is usually written in the first person so we use words like I and me.


Here is an example of how my recount would start if I was writing about my favourite day in lockdown:


My favourite day in lockdown was my daughter Sophie's 10th Birthday.


The night before I decorated the lounge with balloons and banners. Sophie was so excited when she woke up that day that we opened presents as soon as she got out of bed. After that we got ready and packed up the car with a picnic and toys because we were off to the beach!



Then I would talk some more about our day, what we did at the beach and all the fun we had!


Have fun writing your recount!
