Forest Narative

“How much longer do we have to walk for, this bag is so heavy, why can we just camp here “I puffed. “We'll find somewhere soon”said Mum. “Ok then”replied Ashleigh. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The blazing sun didn’t help either it just made me even more tired.

Finally after a two hours walk, not really two hours but it felt like it. We stopped to eat some lunch. “Hmm this is really nice but I think we should carry on “ said Mum.”Ohh do we have to move on now”I said feeling a little bit annoyed. “Yes Come on” replied Mum

While walking almost everywhere mum finally said ”This looks like a good place to camp lets camp over here”. I was relieved when I heard that. While unpacking our stuff we both looked at each other thinking the same thing.

We forgot to pack one of the most important things. The Tent! I mean how could we forget. Quickly we had to come up with a plan, because night was falling and we didn’t want to sleep on the ground We decided to to collect some sticks, leaves and some moss for the bedding. We were making a hut for us to sleep in. It sounded easy but it was quite hard, especially trying to get things when you have to hold a torch in one hand.

The coldness shock my body giving me goose bumps. I wish I was at home in my nice warm snuggly bed I thought to myself. But there was no time to think. We had to get stuff for our hut and fast.

Luckily we made our hut and used our matches to make a fire with some wood. My mum and I got into our sleeping bags and snuggled up next to each other. The fire helped a lot too.

  1. Hi Ashleigh,

    I liked your narrative it was quite interesting. Just imagine if that was real. My mum would be so angry if I left the tent at home and we were out camping. Keep up the great work Ash.

    Yours sincerely, Brooklyn
