I can discuss some features of a recount
One Tuesday morning, when the sun was shining and the birds were singing, I was looking out of the window in the living room. Miss Fraser was catching up on some television whilst eating her Cheerios. It was a peaceful morning even though I knew it was going to be an action packed day. Well, it would be if I had any thing to do with it
I can discuss some features of a recountLooking out onto the springtime sunshine, the colourful flowers against the luscious emerald grass, the perfect blue sky and the clouds that were as fluffy as cotton wool, I was keen to get amongst it all. Five minutes later, I had talked Miss Fraser into an adventure (well not talked, but more stared at her until she gave in).I can discuss some features of a recountStepping out into the sunshine felt great! A few minutes later, we were in the car and ready to go. The fresh air coming through the window felt great against my skin although the sound of Miss Fraser singing wasnt so great. A few seconds later, the horrendous singing had stopped whilst the peaceful sound again of the birds singing and the sound of the car engine whirring sent me to sleep
About half an hour later, we were there! The park! Instantly, I sprung to life, crying with excitement. She had taken me to the park! Woo hoo! Jumping out of the car, I could see the shimmering pond, the familiar towering trees as well as the same old ducks we see every week. I felt at home here. The park was my playground.
Fetch! Miss Fraser called.
Woo hoo! Running energetically towards the blue ball, I was pleased to find out our trip to the park had begun in the best way possible. Seconds later, I found the ball.
Man I am good at this game! I thought to myself as I bounded back to Miss Fraser.
Okay! she was impressed. Lets walk round the park and give you some proper exercise.I can show my understanding of the use of time connectives in a recountThen made our way around the park. Then Miss Fraser decided we should go into the forest. I felt so excited as I love the forest! Then we were walking amongst the trees although I couldnt seem to find any rabbits. Then we saw another dog in the forest. I bounded up to the larger dog in quite a friendly manner (or so I thought). Then the other dog growled loudly. I quickly ran back to the safety of Miss Fraser. Then we ended up turning in a different direction. Then we ended up back in the park. We walked around the duck pond. Then Miss Fraser bumped into an old friend. I could hear children laughing and ducks quacking and lapping in the water. Then I hopped onto my hind legs and scanned the view before me. I felt so happy be in the park.
Then we went to the beach.

I think, she began to speak to me slowly.
What now? I thought to myself. A nice juicy steak? A final run around in the back garden?
You need to go in the bath. Youre scruffy! she asserted quite crossly.
Do you have any dog shampoo left? questioned Grandad loudly from the kitchen.
Oh yes! Mam said with a smile. I have plenty!
So that was that. My tail went down and I tried my best to hide behind the cushions. Although, I thought to myself. A perfect day was had by all. I thought back to all the lovely things that had happened and how much fun I had.
