We went to the dentist this morning. We were very scared. There were many children there and we had to wait a long time. It didn’t take long after I was called in as nothing needed to be done. After everyone had been seen we went back. It began to rain about half way. I had nothing to cover my head so had to use my pinafore as a hood. The rain got heavier and heavier so we took shelter in an archway. We looked like drowned rats when we got back to school. We went into the classroom and got our school bags because lessons were over that day.
We were surprised by the rain.
