SAMANTHA’S WRITING.

I zoomed to the beach. When me and  my mum got there. AAAHHH ANIMAL  SKELETON’!!!!!!!!! I’M SCARED OUT OF MY WITS. I do not know what to do. What do I do? Do I tell my mum or do I run? Mm... mm..MUM!!!!!!!! I ran to my mum. She didn’t believe me. Like really. She doesn’t believe me. Like she doesn’t.


Well I’m over that. Now I have to go get a hula hoop. Once I got a hula hoop out of the car, I went over to the Animal skeleton.I put the hula hoop down around  the animal skeleton. I called my mum over. I said mumcan you help me see what is living or what  kind of  rocks are  in there?” I asked. So she helped me look what kind of creatures lived in there. Then suddenly a crab came out of the mud, so I said to my mum “A crab lives in there‘“my mum said’ “Yes, a crab does  live in there”.


 I said ‘Can we go get some lunch?” my mum said  “ yes”. So I picked up the hula hoop, ran to the car with my mum and got into it. We ran off to the fish & chip shop around the corner. I got a three dollar pack, it had chicken wings, spring rolls, chips and one fish. 



Then we went home, I told my brothers and my Dad what we saw. When we had dinner we had  mince and cheese pies, for desert we had cheese cake. Then I got my pjs on, said good night got into bed and went to sleep and I dreamed of the Skeleton.
