                 MY TRIP TO CANADA by TESSA WATTS

     I had a great time on my adventure trip to Canada. I went with 2 teachers and all my classmates. I missed my family ay first but by the end of the holiday, I didn’t want to go home!

     On my favourite day, we went on a really long walk in the mountains. We had to carry all our things in bags on our backs which was hard work but we never got bored because we all chatted the whole time. We had a rock climbing lesson just before our picnic lunch and later that afternoon we arrived at a lake where we camped for the night. Three of my classmates tried to fish, without success! I helped build the fire. The teachers and two of the older students made supper, then we sat on our blankets around the fire and sang songs and made wishes in the dark. We decided not to sleep inside the tents, but outdoors because we wanted to look at the stars. Some of the boys made “bear” noises trying to make us afraid, but we were still laughing at midnight because we were having so much fun. I’ll never forget that day.

  1. Tessa felt happy on the first day because she was with her family.
  2. Tessa talked a lot with other people on the walk.
  3. After the picnic lunch, the group had a lesson in rock climbing.
  4. The students caught three fish in the lake.

  6. The students didn’t sing songs because they left the guitar at home.
  7. The group slept outside so they could look up at the sky.
