Yassmine, you have used speech to help paint a picture in your readers mind. The start of your writing has a very clear message, you have shown the reader that you are unhappy sitting in the back with all the suitcases.
Remember to make sure you use your access criteria to help create a piece that is easy for your audience to read. The font and colour you have chosen are easy to read however you need to do some more thinking about your punctuation and how you have grouped your ideas together. Next time reread your writing and check you are happy with the order of your ideas.

You have thought about your learning and used your strategies to help as you read to make meaning and grow your understanding and knowledge.
Remember when reflecting and thinking about your learning to add more details and go a little deeper, adding a 'because' to your ideas might help. Reflecting about your learning helps you to grow as a learner, to think about what was tricky and to set goals.
