''looking for gold'' written by marie birkinshaw

Dad was in the garden. I was helping him to put up a fence.
Dad asked,- ''Do you think we'll find some gold in this hole?''
I said,- ''I don't know. Let's have a look!''
In went the spade. We found a spider, a beetle, lots of worms and some soil.
In went the spade again. This time we found a bird's feather, some little pebbles, a snail's shell and more soil.
The spade went in again, and we found some black rock, an old broken pot and lots more soil!
I was getting bored.
''Isn't that hole big enough?''- I asked.
'' Just one more spadeful,"- sad Dad.
Then his spade hit….GOLD!
