Find out all the info on Years 3 and 4.

It was my first day of school and I had no friends at all. The bell rang for recess. Everybody ran out the door to get their food. I opened my bag. Sitting on the bottom of it was a bottle of canteen milk from last year. I could not believe the smell. I was so embarrassed! Everybody laughed. What should I do? It smelt like a dead animal being eaten by rats and mice and other rodents or bugs.

  1. Oh dear, it doesn’t sound like you have got off to a very good start at your new school. I like the way you have used a simile at the end to describe the smell.

    Hey, Jacita!
    What an outstanding use of imagery at the end! I also appreciate that your narrative is relevant to all of us; we all have had those times of loneliness and embarrassment at school. Keep up the great writing! I can tell you are an observant person who puts those skills to good use in their writing.

    Hello, Jacinta!

    You developed such a close connection with your readers in such a few words. I felt so much empathy for your main character from the first sentence. You used the prompt in a unique way; building a narrative on feelings of isolation and showing us what that’s like in a concrete way with the carton of milk. I know how that milk smelled with your delightful, rancid simile at the end.

    Fine work!
