Hi I’m Kaja from Year 5 and this is my 50% true adventure story! Read this to know what realy happened the Russian dog.
In rememberence of Laika, the Space dog
“Get in,NOW!” one of the bossy staff yelled at me. In a fraction of a millisecond, I was in my little rocket.
“10,9,8,7” I heard the technical voice bellow. I shuck with exitment…and fear. With much trouble, I fastened my seatbelt.
“6,5,4.” The rocket started to shake violently and uncontrolably; just like me. I nearly exploded. I just hoped the rocket didn’t. All these diffrent similies swirled round and round my head.
“3,2,1 and…LIFT OFF!” This was it. Laika the Space dog!!! Before I knew it, I was soaring through stars and planets. The rocket was flying as fast as a burning star. I wonder what I’ll find up there as high as in heaven?
Impatiently, I sat inside my cramped rocket, Sputnik 2, and looked around. Butterflies fluttered hilariously in my tummy, so much that it started to hurt. I forgot to say, my freinds, Albina and Mushka, are here with me too. My heart skipped a beat, and then added a beat, and skipped one again. Exitement tingled through my body. All of a sudden, I felt like I was in an aeroplane. An aeroplane that was just landing.
“We’re landing!” Albina cheered exitedly. She was perfectly right.
THUD! The door opened. The sky was pitch black. The ground was snowy white. Nervously, I jumped out of the rocket with Albina and Mushka behind me. I stepped onto the sandy ground.
