News Report

In writing and oral we had to prepare a news report based on a natural disaster or a catastrophe, here’s mine:


Two trains had suspiciously collapsed in a crash at ’21’ station yesterday morning. The driver is seriously injured and unfortunately 3 kids died.

The train number 17 crashed with the train number 18 causing an explosion besides the train station. Luckily, it wasn’t a rush hour so there weren’t many people at the station. A witness that saw the crush said ‘I could not believe what I have seen. The kids were crying and shouting and I could not do nothing to help. It was one of the worst experiences of my life.’

The causes of the crush are still being investigated but the police believes that a fail in the engine is one of the causes.

The president talked to the families of the victims and said ‘As this is one of the forth train crashes in the year, we are going to take extreme measures and will buy new trains to all of the cities’. According to the president, plans are being made so the train service in Argentina can improve.

Mrs. Bixby and the Colonel’s Coat

We had to prepare an activity based on the story ‘Mrs. Bixby and the Colonel’s coat’ in which I has to pretend I was one of the characters of the story.


Dear friend,

How are you? I hope you are well, I am writing to explain you how I got a real and wonderful mink coat. You have to see it, it’s really, really beautiful. Mr Bixby, the dentist, gifted it to me.

He invited me to his house with the excuse that he had a gift to give me. When I arrived to his home, there was a very romantic and tasty dinner already prepared for us that was delicious. Then for the dessert we ate some fresh strawberries he cultivated and after, we went for walk. While we were walking he gave me the best gift I have ever recieved in my life, a mink coat!

I really love Mr Bixby, and he is very generous with me. I am planning to gift him a silk tie that I has bought in France. I hope he likes it!

With love,

Miss Puelteney
