Soap Box Derby Pracstise

Yesterday on the 11th of March the Pt England School Team went to Glendowie to practise for our Soap Box Derby. When we went to our practise we said a prayer and had a short meeting before we got ready. We were feeling pretty proud of our flash little red car!
Jacob got ready to start.!!BOOM!! As the ramp ticked he went zooming down the hill. He set the pace, the new record he made was 4 seconds, and then next it was Shontal's turn. She looked afraid but she still did it. After Shontal it was me, Nathaniel.
I zoomed down the hill and when I reached the bottom I slammed on the brakes. Before my turn I had been pretty nervous but after I had done it I felt really proud of myself. It was great fun.
I can not wait for the big race coming up this Sunday.

Nathaniel I really liked what you wrote, it wasn't too long, but it was very short and very exciting. It made me feel that I was just there watching you race. You'll have to update your blog and let us know how you did.
