My Horror Story

Walt:Manage ourselves and our time to complete a piece of writing

It was a cold misty night in the Middleton family home. The family were watching T.V peacefully as they heard a noise in the kitchen. The dad Darrion went to go and see what that noise was, but there was nobody there. The fruit bowl was on the ground, all the fruit has spilt out of the bowl and the bowl was smashed.

Later that night the mother of baby Lisa put her to bed. Lisa’s parents also went to bed later that night. During the night Lisa’s parents heard her crying. They didn’t think it was bad so they went back to sleep.

Later that night Lucia heard Lisa cry again so she went to go and check on her. She opened Lisa’s door and Lisa was not there. Her mother then screamed and the father woke up. Her father ran into the room and started to look for baby Lisa. “Lisa is gone” her dad said. I think our house is haunted, there might be ghosts, or even someone in the house. Nothing else happened after that.

During the year they got investigators to look in there house to see if anything or anyone was there. The investigators said nothing was there so they carried on with life. A few months after that they had another child. His name was Charlie. Charlie had a happy life until he was 3,  he was taken away from the ghost. Late at night the parents of the children heard 2 little voices singing “Hush little baby don't you cry, your gonna have a sweet little life”.

A few weeks ago Pt England School were given a wonderful performance from a group of dancers. The group who performed for us were iluminate. iluminate are a group of dancers from all over America (USA). Everyone was excited to hear that we were having a performance from this group. The whole school gathered in the hall for the amazing performance. Mrs Nua talked to us about this group. Mrs Nua then introduced a lady, this lady was the one that had got this group to perform for us.

As soon as they had there talk the lights were out. Everyone in the room were excited about that. The lights were out, then all you could see on the stage was a big person, a glowing person. You couldn't see there face or anything because they were wearing all black so they could glow in the dark. Once the first glowing figure was out, two people came in as well. The music then started to play. Once the group finished performing they came out and talked to the school. The selected Kapa Haka children did a performance for the group at the end. The group then learnt the NZ haka. They performed it too.

Once they had finished doing the Haka the school went back to their classes to get ready to head home. However the the Yr 7 & 8s stayed behind to ask the group some questions. Some of the questions were “Who inspired you to dance”, “ Can you do the dab” and more. When we finished asking questions we went back to class to pack up. Our day was amazing!

Task Description:Our task was to write about the group that came to perform for our school. We had to use the TREE structure to write this recount.
