Primary 4 English Model Composition: Caught in the rain

This Primary 4 English composition was not done in one of my P4 classes. It was the SA2 Composition theme for one of my Primary 4 2019 students, Celine.

During the year that she has been with us, Celine has grown from strength to strength. Her weekly writing has become much more descriptive and she even creates her own creative similes and imagery as she writes (as seen in this composition.)

She scored 19/20 for her SA2 Composition and I asked her mother if I could put her composition on the blog. I have corrected the few grammar mistakes she made in her composition but the content is all hers.

Congratulations Celine! You did a great job! 🙂

Caught in the rain

            The bell rang. You could hear the screeching of chairs and the pattering of footsteps as students burst out of their classrooms and made a beeline to the staircases in hoards. My friend, Jane, waited for me while I switched off the lights and  fans as I was the class monitress.

“Sarah! Are you done?”Jane called out to me.

I nodded my head and we both left the classroom, chatting animatedly. We both waved goodbye to each other as I set off from school as usual.

            As I was walking back, it suddenly started raining. Unfortunately, I did not bring my umbrella and within minutes, it was raining heavily. The raindrops fell like bullets from the sky. Soon, I was drenched from head to toe and my shirt stuck to my back like second skin. My hair stuck to my face and I brushed my sopping hair off my face.  I decided to use my bag to shelter myself as it was waterproof. The wind howled like a wolf and I started to feel very cold and I wished I had a hot cup of chocolate.

            I was shaking like a leaf and sneezing like mad when I decided to make a dash for it. That way, I would be able to reach home faster. I ran as fast as lightning as I knew that I was going to be caught in a thunderstorm if I did not hurry back home. Lightning flashed through the sky like a whip while thunder cracked through the sky. I jumped every time I heard thunder as I was scared of thunder. I also knew that standing under a tree would also be a very bad idea as the tree could collapse on me if lightning struck it.

            I was nearing my house when I slipped and fell. There was a sharp pain in my knee and when I looked at it, I saw that it had been grazed and blood was oozing profusely out of the wound. My bag meanwhile had landed further away and I staggered to it. I grabbed it and searched inside for a tissue to prevent myself from losing more blood. I wrapped it around my leg and stumbled back home.

            When I reached my house’s gate, I placed my student card on the sensor and it opened. I rushed into my house, went into the shower and freshened up. Once I had finished showering and eating my lunch, my mother helped me to bandage my wound and wanted to know everything that had happened. I told her everything and I kept on sneezing while I was telling her everything. I was then asked to rest and I had a hot cup of milk on my side table. I could not go to school the next day because I had a cold and when I returned, I had to use a lift because of the wound on my leg. I also had to get help from my mother  when I wanted to climb up the stairs to my bedroom which was on the second floor.

            I learned that I should not run in the rain because it is dangerous and that you can get injuries and a cold or a fever. I should always bring an umbrella so that if there is rain I will not catch a cold or have to run in the rain. I have never done that again since that incident.
