200 Word Challenge


The 200 Word Challenge is an opportunity to practise writing using just the right words. 200 Words might sound like a lot, but once you get going you’ll find yourself crossing that line easily, so be careful to only say what you NEED to. 

(This whole thing is over 100 words already)


For Week One your challenge is to write a 200 word recount of a time you…


Tasted the best food you’ve ever tasted.


Remember! This week we have been learning about chronological order. Make sure you get the sequence of events in the right order.


Begin your writing here:The best that I have ever tasted was tongan food,I have three favourites but I first want to tell you my first one.My first favourite Food is Loi Horsii in english it is horse.Loi horsii is horse mixed with salat and some coconut cream,It is very very delicious and has a lot of flavour even for a 3 ingredient plate.Whenever I eat Loi Horsii My papa always says that I will give me horsepower and that I will be strong but he is obviously joking.My next favourite food is called ota and in english it is “Raw fish”,Raw fish is a dish that includes fish,spring onion,sometimes mussels, tomatoes,and lastly Coconut milk.Raw fish is has a very strong taste and it is a very popular dish.When it comes to my family we have to add in mussels but the main ingredient is the raw fish it just brings a lot of flavour to the dish and it has a lot of seasoning.Lastly my favourite dish is called Otai,And in english it is a fruit drink that is most drinked in the summer but is still also made for special occasions.The drink is mades of fruits like orange,pineapple,mango,and also apple.Otai is made with fruits and also coconut milk and as you can see most of the tongan dishes are mostly made of coconut milk or coconut cream.Otai is a nice kind of drink but also mixed with coconut and bits of fruit.Otai can also be known as a dessert but mostly a drink and type of food.And that is all of my favourite food please leave a positive comment on my blog.

  1. Hey Eve,

    I’ve been lucky enough to try raw fish, and otai a bunch of times, but I’m yet to try horse. Maybe that’ll help me get those gains in the gym.

    You’ve done a great job EXPLAINING what these foods are, but unfortunately, we’re not doing explanatory writing! When we’re doing a recount, think about it as a story – not one we make up – but turning our own experiences into a story, with a beginning, middle, and end, made up of different events. I know you already know this, but it’s important for you to make sure that you write for the specific purpose of the task. Otherwise, even if the writing is great, you can’t get full marks.

    I’d love for you to turn this into a story, if you can!
