The Wolf is chasing the sheep!" The villagers came running up the hill to help the boy drive the wolf away. But when they arrived at the top of the hill, they found no wolf. The boy laughed at the sight of their angry faces. "Don't cry 'wolf', shepherd boy," said the villagers, "when there's no wolf!" They went grumbling back down the hill. Later, the boy sang out again, "Wolf! Wolf! The wolf is chasing the sheep!" To his naughty delight, he watched the villagers run up the hill to help him drive the wolf away. When the villagers saw no wolf they sternly said, "Save your frightened song for when there is really something wrong! Don't cry 'wolf' when there is NO wolf!" But the boy just grinned and watched them go grumbling down the hill once more. Later, he saw a REAL wolf prowling about his flock. Alarmed, he leaped to his feet and sang out as loudly as he could, "Wolf! Wolf!" But the villagers thought he was trying to fool them again, and so they didn't come. At sunset, everyone wondered why the shepherd boy hadn't returned to the village with their sheep. They went up the hill to find the boy. They found him weeping.

"There really was a wolf here! The flock has scattered! I cried out, "Wolf!" Why didn't you come?" An old man tried to comfort the boy as they walked back to the village. "We'll help you look for the lost sheep in the morning," he said, putting his arm around the youth, Nobody believes a liar...even when he is telling the truth!" (Taken from; Aesop Fables)

MY DAY AT THE BEACH Last week my friend and I were bored after three weeks of holidays, so we rode our bikes to Smith Beach, which is only five kilometers from where I live. When we arrived at the beach, we were surprised to see there was hardly anyone there.

39

After having a quick dip in the ocean, which was really cold, we realized one reason there were not many people there. It was also quite windy. After we bought ourselves some hot chips at the takeaway store nearby, we rode our bikes down the beach for a while, on the hard, damp part of the sand. We had the wind behind us and, before we knew it, we were many miles down the beach. Before we made the long trip back we decided to paddle our feet in the water for a while, and then sit down for a rest. While we were sitting on the beach, just chatting, it suddenly dawned on us both that all the way back we would be riding into the strong wind. When we finally made it back home, we were both totally exhausted! But we learned some good lessons that day! Answer the following questions based on the above text. 1. When did the writer go to the beach? 2. What is the name of the beach? 3. How far is the beach from the writers house? 4. Were there many people playing on the beach? 5. Why? Tell us? 6. Guess! What lesson got by the writer from the journey? 7. When we arrived at the beach, we were surprised to see there was hardly anyone there. The underlined word refers to 8. When we finally made it back home, we were both totally exhausted! The synonym of the bold typed word is 9. What is the purpose of the text? 10 What tenses are used in the text? .

Special Note: The story above is called a recount text. It tells the reader a past event. It usually focuses on a persons past experience, so it usually uses the word I or we. A recount text has three elements: orientation or setting, events and reorientation or concluding statements. Of the story. The orientation tells the reader who was involved in the story, what happened, where the story took place, and when it happened. The events tell the sequence of events. These are described in order. The re-orientation summarises the event.

A DAY TO REMEMBER
About six months ago when I was on holiday in Italy we went to visit the leaning tower of Pisa. Looking at it from the outside it was massive. I am positively sure that it is one of the seven wonders of the world. It was crooked and you would really believe it was going to fall, by the angle it sits in. It has 200 steps leading up to the top. I was quite pleased with myself as I was the first person to reach the top but I was almost blown off the side when I was nearly deafened by the sound of the bells. You were supposed to wear earplugs for the noise but we didnt have any as we didnt know the bells were going to ring. When the time came for us to go down again we thought we were going across the road to see a big round building which had a long round roof. While we were walking inside someone came in and they were talking very softly but it in fact made a loud echo. Later we thought we would be sneaky and go down to the graveyard even though we had no permission. There were a few creepy graves that we thought we would find some bones in but we werent in luck. We looked in every grave that didnt have a top on but we didnt find any. Still, that made our day a thrilling one and one to remember. Questions 1.

Fishing at Seribu Island

50

Orientation

Last month, I left Jakarta for Seribu Island. I went there with some members of Jakarta fishing club, who organized the monthly fishing activity. Getting there was not quite easy. It needed two hours by speed boat in a bit rough wave.

Event 1

Soon, after our arrival at Seribu Island, we got a general briefing. The chief of the fishing club gave some information about the fishing code. It included an explanation how to release out the hook from the fish mouth safely.

Event 2

Then , we began our fishing. We set out to sea early in the morning. Around 4 kilometers from the beach, we started to fish. Apparently, no one caught any big fish. We caught mostly small yellowtail fish. After fishing for nearly four hours, I only got five fish; three yellow fish, one salmon and one little Merlin. It was not bad at all.

Re-orientation

In Summary , the trip was mostly enjoyable. Fishing is absolutely an interesting activity.
