The Butterfly Lion

Saturday 21st November 1964

Dear Diary,

On Monday I had the strangest day ever, I woke up this morning and I got a letter from my loving mother. I left to go to the worst school ever. At 11:55pm Basher the bully put shoe polish in my hair by the time it’s Christmas my hair will be as shiny as an iron bar.

At 12:00pm, in the spelling test Mr Carter put an old, manky book on my head in a corner because I got all of the spellings wrong.

After the test, I gripped the wall in so much anger. Twenty minutes later, I hid behind a huge, green bush where I have dug a hole underneath the electrical fence. When the time was right I slid threw the hole and ran away from the most boring school ever…

    Well done Mckenzie, you have included fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases. Next time try to include relative clauses.
    Miss Smith 🙂
