This KS2 English quiz will challenge you on writing recounts. Writing recounts is about relating events or experiences.
In 1912, the British explorer, Captain Scott, led an expedition to Antarctica. The expedition was marked by tragedy - first, Scott and his men discovered that they'd reached the South Pole shortly after a Norwegian team arrived there first. After this disappointment, accidents, extreme weather and frostbite followed. None of the men returned. We are able to recount the story of Captain Scott though, because he kept a diary, which was later found. Diaries are one form of recount.
