W.A.L.T: Retell a past event.

W.I.L.F: correct sequence of event.

‘’No school today, we’re cooking’’Miss Wihongi said happily.Yes l
thought to myself. I love apple crumble. Miss called my name. I
rushed to the back of the class and l shoved the gloves on. I
snatehed a green potato peeler from the pile. I held my red apple
in my other hand I started to peel. Finally all the skin is off. I
quickly cut my apple into quarters and cored it. I began to
Slice it. I added my load of apple into the big silver pot. It’s
Ready to cook. Off to the staffroom we sprinted. I mixed
Sugar and butter. Then flour. It looked like bread crumbs. I
Sprinkled this on top of the stewed apple. I shoved it into
The hot blazing oven. It smelt like heaven. I looked into the
Oven. The bubbles reminded me of a bottle of bubbly fanta.‘’It’s ready wihongi. Haere Mai Ki te kai’’. Miss Wihongi said. I ran to
grab a bowl and waited for everyone else. I rushed to scoop a
Little piece. It was delicious I thought. ”What a awesome day.
