Richmond's Recount - Jungle Drums

On Thursday the 5th of August after a week of rainy lunchtimes, we met in the hall. When I was waiting for the rest of Room 8 students, I heard loud noises sounding as loud as a group of elephants. I felt so excited and amazed.

Once I got inside I felt hooked in to the rhythm. There was rows and rows of drums. As I saw everybody playing the drums, I picked the perfect drum just for me. Chewie said "Actions are louder than words." Ms Hansell said that it was a surprise. After that I went out of the hall. My body was exhausted and my hands were pink and red.

Hi Richmond - I am really curious about the drumming now I have read your recount and read that your hands were pink and red!! Wow, you must have done some amazing drumming. Did anyone record or video it?

Richmond, I really liked your opening sentence. I like the way you included..."...after a week of rainy lunchtimes..." It really hooked me in as a reader. Great to read.

Richmond - I like the way you said "Once I got inside I felt hooked in to the rhythm..." I wish I had been there!
