The worst swimming lesson ever!
Getting changed for my swimming lesson, I had that gut feeling that something was wrong. My normal swimming teacher (Karen) has: neat hair, a smiley face and a mauve uniform. I quite liked her, so I walked onto the pool side with a spring in my step. It was at that moment when out of the corner of my eye I spotted a cross-looking and bedraggled woman with the badge that read “Instructor” sitting on the instructor’s chair. She beckoned me and my group over and she cackled. She tossed Jack into the pool and he landed next to a green thing. At first I thought it was a floatie, then I realised IT WAS AN ALLIGATOR that climbed up! We all knew Jack found it tricky to get out. That was officially the worst swimming lesson ever… even the alligator agreed; he had therapy for years! Jack was fine though.
By the pool on Saturday evening it was swimming - the thing I dreaded most!
The one problem was I couldn't swim , my teacher was like an alligator every lesson. I walk in and I imagine an alligator but this one weekend was different...as I climbed into the pool I suddenly realised there were alligators in the pool not only was she an alligator, she had alligators in with her!
I quickly jumped out of the pool with a sigh of relief - I tried to grab my towel but it was too high and tricky for me to reach. So I stood on the bench and then reached up. As soon as I grabbed it, I felt to wet hands touch my waist and lift me up into the air. The nasty alligator teacher (with mauve swimming shorts) tossed me into the water. I screamed for my life as I scampered out again and ran out and got changed quicker and ran till I got home...
Getting ready for my swimming, I could tell something is different. Picking up my cosy warm towel I wondered out to the poolside and sat on the mauve bench.
Searching for my swimming instructor James, a strange man called our group to jump into the pool: screaming like a alligator the teacher was trying to push Martha into the cold and tricky water.
My jaw dropped to the pool - I couldn't believe what I'm seeing. Martha climbed out of the pool and went to grab her towel but the alligator teacher push her back into the cold pool.
Before my swimming lesson, I could tell something was wrong .
I could see something green in the water: was it a turtle? Or was it an alligator in my mauve trunks?!
I could see a a alligator in the pool.
My swimming teacher -David- wasn't there. But there was this woman who was on the news for climbing mount Everest - I asked if it was tricky she said, "Yes 100%!".
Getting changed at the pool was horrible, I was shaking like mad and my head was spinning like mad too all because of a swimming lesson.
Picking up my mauve, and kind of rough, towel I strode onto the pool side. As I was looking for my swimming teacher - Rodger - I overheard this plump lady calling my group:screeching like an alligator.
The teacher tried to toss Timmy into the tricky waters. My jaw dropped (when I realised how cold it was). Just as Timmy thought his humiliation was over, he climbed out the cold, cold steps. I'm not doing that again!
We have 5 amazing words to be put into a creative piece. They must ALL be included but can be in any order. They are:
Teacher Alligator Mauve Climbed Tricky
I don't know why nobody believes in my big friend. I can't prove it but I have a giant friend and his name is Big Bob. I needed to prove it, I had a plan up my sleeve for him to come into my playground and prove everyone wrong.
Today was the day.
He had just came. Everyone ran back inside then I shouted “MY BIG FRIEND!!!!”
I will never regret doing that because now everybody doesn't think I am a super strange person and still to this day I'm still best friends with big bob and everyone else love him to this day.
As I was walking into town I realised that a pair of hands were sticking out of the ground. They were holding a rope.
Is this a giant trapped underground? Or maybe a giant trying to show us something?
I walked over to them and got a little closer. Then they moved…
A giant came crashing out of the ground – sending tarmac and paving slabs towards me.
I ran, and ran and ran as fast I could. But then, he sunk back into the ground like nothing had happened.
I ran back home with disbelief of what I had seen…
I was riding on my old, rusty bike on a cold, cold night. The sun was disappearing at my feet. I looked up, I froze in shock.
There it was. The Northern Lights.
Every single colour of the rainbow lit up the sky. It was just amazing.
I sat there on my bike for hours on end, watching this amazing phenomenon.
I checked my watch…
The time was 8:00 in the morning!
I got the last glimpse of the beautiful colours floating in the sky.
My heart sunk. I had loved it so much.
I’ll never forget it.
