Last Saturday, my dad took my brother and me to a campsite in the forest. We left our house after lunch. After a few hours, we knew we were on the wrong road because we couldn’t see any ! We stopped at a café and asked someone where the forest was. The man in the café said, “You are three away from the forest!” When we arrived at the campsite it was already but my dad had a torch in his car. We put the tent up and went to bed. In the middle of the night, it started to rain. It rained a lot and it was very windy. Suddenly the tent fell down and water started to come the tent. We were very wet and we quickly ran to the car. The next morning we all woke up in the car feeling and cold. We looked at our broken tent. “I don’t think we’ll be sleeping in that tent again!” said my dad, and we all started to laugh.

Winter sports

Winter sports are the sports people do only when there is snow and ice on the ground. The most popular ones are that need snow, like skiing, snowboarding and sledging.

Ice skating needs ice, but it's not always safe to skate on a lake, so people often special places for that. These are ice rinks, and they are very popular.

Sledging is popular with children, and it's than ice skating because you can do it on any small hill with very snow.

For the winter sports, most people travel to the mountains to do them. They stay in places have special lifts that can take people to the top of the mountain. Then they can ski or snowboard down.

Some people like to competitions for these sports, and the winners are those who move the on their skis or snowboards. They are very exciting to watch, but it can be dangerous so there is always an waiting to help anyone who may break an arm or leg.

Trip to the museum

My name's Harry. Last week my teacher took our class to The Museum of History in the city. We went by bus because it was cheaper than the train. Before we went inside, the teacher gave us a map of the museum and said "It's half past nine now. You're free to look round but you must meet me here at half past eleven. Don't be late!" I didn't have a watch but my friend, Sam, did. We walked in!

There were clothes and things people used in the old days everywhere. It was very interesting. You could read people’s old diaries too. But Sam said they were boring. He looked at his map and saw there were some pyramids in the basement so we went to find them. They were great! Then we went into the museum shop to buy some things. There were pens, pencils, and books about the museum. We couldn't decide what to buy! In the end I bought a ruler for my brother and Sam got a fan with a picture of the museum on it for his little sister.

Then Sam looked at his watch. We were very late! We ran up the stairs to the front of the museum and looked for our teacher. He wasn't there. Suddenly a bus went past. All our friends from class were looking through the window and laughing and waving at us. But our teacher wasn't laughing!
