Pupils from Juniors to Sixth Class have been learning about the writing genre of Recount. Recount is the retelling or recounting of an event or a experience. Often based on the direct experience of the writer, the purpose is to tell what happened. Daily news telling is a useful precursor to this particular writing genre. Recounts though often personal, can also be factual or imaginative. Please see samples of Kilcornan National School's Recount writing below!
