Holiday Reflection – 100 Word Challenge

After each set of school holidays, the students in 3/4C enjoy writing about their holiday adventures.

This time we did something a little different. We had to write about our holidays in exactly 100 words!

Students were encouraged to choose just one holiday event to focus on. Usually we enjoy writing lots of interesting details and information in our texts, but we had to use our 100 words wisely for this task.

Below you can read everyone’s 100 word holiday writing pieces.

It was great to see the students displaying the character strengths of enthusiasm, persistence and open mindedness as they completed this task.


What did you enjoy about your holidays?

What was challenging about this writing task?

Do you have any ideas for future writing challenges for the 3/4C students?

Can you leave a blog comment that is exactly 100 words in length?

    I really liked Zali’s it was very descriptive and sounded like lots of fun! I wish I was there to play with snowballs and eat popcorn in front of the fire!

  9. Dear miss Jordan your one hundred word challenge about going to the football to see the
    cats play was great. Trying to write a piece about the holidays with one hundred words was
    a good challenge.
