Mavis's Recount - Jungle Drums

Yesterday afternoon we marched silently to the hall.  As I walked up the stairs, I felt pumped up.  As soon as I heard the outstanding rhythm, I marched with enjoyment. 

I felt enthusiastic.  I heard piles of laughter coming from everyone.  It sounded like elephants stomping loudly and sounded like a stampede was going through the hall!

Johnny used so many signals we finally understood what he wanted done.  At the end I had stinging red hands.

I never wanted to stop drumming because it was so much fun!

I really know what you mean about "elephants stomping loudly" - great imagery Mavis.

I like the way you used the word "march" instead of "went" because that made the recount really interesting to read. Well done for organising your writing into paragraphs too Mavis!
