Week 27: Are Looks Really Important? By Benny

I never knew how to ride a bike. It was time to learn. I went to the bike shop with my mom, hoping to get a fast, blue bike. The manager told us that there was only one bike left. An old, red bike.

“Was this really the only bike left?” I asked.

“I’m afraid so,” the manager replied.

It was better than nothing. I returned home with my new bike and headed outside to learn how to cycle. Soon, I realized the bike was actually as good as any other bike. I raced my friends and beat them all the time. The bike was great and I discovered that looks do not matter after all.

Week 27 The Scarecrow By Evan

I woke up with my brother this morning and we went downstairs for breakfast. I had cereal and my brother had pudding. Then my brother and I went outside. I challenged him to a race. I said first one to the scarecrow wins –  we then separated.

When I  got there, suddenly the scarecrow flew into the air and looked down on top of me. I ran swiftly  home. Suddenly the scarecrow appeared in front of me.  I ran the other way then I slipped into the river.

It was fairly deep  and  then I found myself  drowning…

Week 27 The Bunker by Colin

I clambered through the rusty tunnel, hoping it led to a bunker. I could hear the zombie trashing the room below me. I held my breath and silently crawled along. After a while more of crawling, I came to a T junction. As I was about to turn right I heard a scream coming from the left side. I crawled as fast as I could down the left vent.

Suddenly I saw a flicker of light and heard murmuring. I slowed my pace and crawled out of the tunnel. As I stood up, I thought to myself “Was this really the only bunker left?”

Week 27 Space Adventure By Aidan

We zoomed across the moon rock speeding for our life. The Colijop was gaining on us and we had to find Zara. We were practically flying over the rocky moon surface. Suddenly we saw her –  the figure of a woman in the midst of space. We skidded to a halt and grabbed her swiftly swiveling around and racing off to the space station. When we got there we frantically searched everywhere to find the Colijop bite antidote

“She might not live,” said the captain.

“No I’m not letting her die,” I said.

“We have to head to the planet they call Earth!”

Was this really the only way? I thought.

Week 27 No soap and a car crash by Adam

We were preparing for lockdown and it was a terrible time. My mom went to the shop and when she came home she had barely anything – people were bulk buying.

My older sister said “Was this the only bottle of soap there? ”

Mom replied, “Yes, sadly.”

We were stuck at home with barely any soap and cleaning stuff. The next day she went to the shop again and she went early to try and get more and this time she came back with more but she told us that she saw a car crash! She called the guards and ambulance and everyone was fine thankfully.

Week 27 The Core Of The Earth By Ronan

One morning as I was getting out of bed, I decided that I would try to find the core of the earth.

First I needed about 800 shovels so I rang my friend and told him to come over that evening with all the shovels he could find. Meanwhile, I set to work on the plans. We were going to dig the hole in my back garden and it was going to be a square metre wide.

When my friend finally arrived, I wasn’t as happy as I thought I’d be.

“Was that really the only one you could find?” I said angrily.

…Now 30 years later I’ve still only managed to get 12 meters deep… Even with the help of 3 diggers.

Week 27: The situation: By Dan

Rat a tat tat!

The machine gun began to spray bullets in our direction. I dived into a shell crater, and pulled out my rifle and began to fire back.


A shell landed right alongside me and I was blown back towards our trenches. It was a blood bath out there.

Suddenly the enemy whistle blew. I knew what that meant. Running, was this the only option I thought as I began to run to higher ground. I reached the hill and hid behind a tree. There were four other soldiers there.

We would fight to save our friends!

Week 27 The War By Kristupas

When I was growing up no one ever told me about the two wars. Until 2032 the war started and I thought this was the first war.  Then I heard my mother tell my father that he was not allowed to go to war because his great grandfather went to the last war and died.

Then I stepped up and asked why did you not tell me about that.  I was so mad that I went off to see what a war looked like.

Walking to the military to sign up… That was the worst decision of my life.

Week 27 The Robbery By Conor H

It was a cold brisk night on the streets of Manhattan. This night my team and I were planning the best rob of our lives. We were going to try and steal a precious diamond minded inside a bulletproof glass. We all got into the Hummer and drove as fast as we could. Then we had finally arrived at the museum. We burst through the glass and tiptoed over to the gem as silent as mice.

Then we looked back and saw the cops running to stop us. There was no other way out of the museum. We would have no choice but to take out the cops ourselves.

Was this really the only way out?

Week 27 The Trap Door By Warren

It was Saturday and my friends and I were going to the castle to explore.  When we got there we went inside the door. Suddenly it shut behind us and locked.  We all were extremely scared. So we went forward and saw another door. We opened the door and saw a room full of snakes.

“Was this really the only way out?” we said to each other.

Then one of my friends spotted a window behind the door. We knew that was our way out but how could we get up there. Then we remembered that the oldest of our friends was very good at climbing so he gave us all a boost and then climbed up after.

After that, we have never went back.

Week 27 The cows down my lane By Jacob

Every day I walk my dog, Teddy, for about 30 minutes. Some days it’s rainy some days it is sunny but one thing was always the same.
After sprinting past the last house on the left (there was always an angry and upset dog), there was a field with two big fat cows. One had marks on its back in the shape of a diamond, the other’s marks were like a book. They were there every day except today.

There was a farmer in the field and he shouted out to me “Excuse me, have you seen any cows today? I seem to have lost mine.”
Just then the angry dog started yelping. I looked over and saw the two cows chasing the dog round his garden.

”I found your cows!” I shouted at the farmer and giggled as he chased them around the garden.

Week 27 : Lost diamond

I was sprinting away from a monster. I found a hole and I went down there. I don’t even know why I got chased by a monster but then I remembered that I had lost my brother’s diamond.  He said something bad would happen to me.

At this stage, I was upset that the monster came back.  Then I saw an old man standing in front of me.

I said, “Are you OK?”

No response.

I said it again and he turned his back.  He had a white soft beard.

He then said ” you should not be here”  and handed me a book.

“Go follow the book – be careful. ”

He handed me a bat just in case.  Before I went I asked him his name. He said “Jo hung OK”

“Thanks, good luck for the future,” I said and went.

Week 26 Statues in Memory By Liam O

It was a very stormy night, winds howling and 57 men were on their way to back to HeadQuarters on a boat when a huge wave smashed against the heavy yacht. The boat shook from left to right before regaining its balance. But just as everyone thought it was ok, the engine went bust and caused the ship to go faster. The captain tried to stop it but it would not work.

“ROCK!” one of the men shouted. Everyone went into a panic and were running around everywhere. Then BANG everything went silent… the ship crashed…

3 months later their bodies were found lying on the beach.

These statues were built-in memory of the men that died on that day…



Short story Talent show by Aidan

25 of January 2020 Friday

Dear Diary,

Today in school there was a poster on the wall for the local talent show. It was on Sunday the 27th so I signed up for singing. I hope I didn’t make a mistake Diary because I don’t want to be made a laughing stock. In science that day I got the usual bullying by Barry McCarty and we made a fake active volcano. I was paired up with Mike so that made it a small bit more fun.

See you soon Diary.

26 of January 2020 Saturday

Dear Diary

Today I woke up at 1 in the afternoon and watched TV. At 3 O’clock I went to rehearsals for the talent show in the hall. Surprisingly Mike signed up. He was going to chop his sister in half as a magic trick and through all the practice he wouldn’t stop grinning! When I went up to do my practice I sang the song “Bruises” and I was a bit embarrassed as I had only chosen that song because it was “in”. After it was Sarah and she did a pretty decent dance from the nutcracker. It felt like the day went on for ages with all the acts but I was proud of myself.

Bye for now Diary

27 of January 2020 Sunday

The day of the Talent show!

Hello Diary, I had the best day ever today. In the morning I raced downstairs and shoved a bowl of cornflakes in my mouth. I woke Mom and Dad up and we drove to the talent show and got inside. We looked for seats and watched all the acts fly by. Finally, It was my turn. I was a bit nervous but in the end, everyone clapped. I didn’t win but ended up coming 2nd

See you soon Diary.

Short Story Competition: The Journey : By Dan

The boat began to slow down as a wave crashed against the steel hull. We were approaching the undiscovered island. I stepped onto golden sandy shoreline that seemed to stretch for miles into the horizon.


A tree smashed into the ground and a pile of rubble erupted out of the surface. Millions of tiny creatures swarmed out from the new hole in the ground.; they were heading straight for us.


Gunshots echoed from behind me and a man in rags carrying a gun emerged from behind a rock. The creatures were disintegrating into thin air. My filming crew dived to the ground and so did I. This was definitely a mistake coming here.

A few minutes later, all the creatures had dissapeared and the man walked over to us. We thanked him but he didn’t seem to understand, instead he scampered away into the distance.

We were all alone.

I pulled out my map and studied  it very carefully. We were on the north coast of the island. My film crew were still shaking after the terrifiying incident. I began to walk into the deep dense forest of palm trees It was at that moment that I heard a flock of birds flying away from the forest.


A poison dart flew past my ear and a group of people with the man that had saved us ran towards us. They were brandishing their silver steel swords and spears in anger. We were in trouble now.

“Run!” I shouted to my crew.

We ran back to the boat,raised the sails and took off. Our pursuers were beginning to climb into the water as we sped off into the sunset.

That adventure was not made for us!

Week 26 The attack by Colin

I watched from the opera house as the soldiers attacked. They had been trying to break in for 12 hours. At the moment they had retreated back across the river but I was sure they’d be back. I walked over to my friend who was at a different window.

Suddenly before I could talk to him, a bomb smashed through the roof. I turned around to see that the soldiers on our side had erupted into a panic. The bomb had a timer on it and I could see that the mechanics were trying to dismantle it. I rushed down the steps and sprinted to the bomb.

Suddenly I heard a click…

Week 26: The Lego soldiers: By Liam A

It was a long war and we were tired of it by now.  My friends and I were getting really bad headaches from the crackle of guns. But one day we were plodding along the long old trench and found a man that turned one of the enemies into lego. And suddenly he took out a robust-looking wand and shouted:


For once there was silence. My friends and I peeped out of the trench and saw that all the enemies were turned into lego. After awhile all of the soldiers ran over and thanked the wizard.

Now all of the lego soldiers are in our city. They are a famous monument.

Week 26 : The Scary Blocks by Rhys

I was in Italy there were big blocks in different colours. There were rumours that if you go where they were at 3 am something bad would happen to you.  So we went – it was 2.50 am.  I was with my sister Lily and friend James.

One of the blocks ran after me.  Then I looked and a group of them were after us – one jumped on James.  I shouted, ” Stop this please.”  They laughed. I was irate then they caught James and they took him somewhere. We followed.  They were at a lab There I overheard what they were saying. …They were catching people and turning them into blocks…

Week 26 The Figure War By Evan

The sky was as blue as the ocean as myself and my family arrived at the Legoland Windsor Resort. I was delighted to have a holiday and a few weeks away from the books. We explored the park. The rides were huge and colourful. The afternoon came and we decided to visit the famous statue area. To me, all the statues looked the same.

Until … one of them started to talk and move. The statue man started to chase me with a water gun around the area. My family was laughing at me but I felt embarrassed. I won’t be forgetting that day anytime soon.

When I’m older this will be a story I’ll tell my kids and grandkids.

Many years ago there was a battle going on between two tribes. One of the tribes had a mystical jewel. There were 100 guards guarding the jewel and it was near impossible to get at it.

One day the tribe caught the guards off guard and got the jewel. They didn’t know how they could get it back. Then this one man said they could distract them by throwing paper airplanes next to where they were.   So they got paper and made airplanes. They started throwing the paper and slowly the guards went over to check them. Then they went over and stole the jewel. They guarded the jewel for the rest of their lives.

To this day,in that area there are statues of the guards.

Suddenly, the impossible happened… a human enemy walked over to the boss and cut his power supply.

The robots raised their weapons and fired.

Week 26 Revenge By Kristupas

My friend and I were walking downtown to get milk for my mom because she was baking cupcakes for us. While we were walking to the supermarket we noticed that there were red manikins on the road leading to the town park. Everyone was around the manikins. Suddenly humans jumped out of the manikins and started to run around. But when someone said, ” We’re being raided,”  that’s when everyone started panicking.

The next day all the shops were empty. Now it was our time to raid the little village of Tybalt-  we went over and raided all their items.

Week 26 The Alien Attack By Ronan

Last week as I was going for a walk by the harbour I noticed some people dressed in colourful clothes. They all had red face paint on. I went up to the small yellow one at the front and asked him why they were all dressed in colourful clothes. He told me that they were expecting a minor alien attack and dressing in bright clothes was the only way to scare the aliens off. He told me that I could stand there too. I wasn’t too keen on scaring aliens so I ran off.

Later that day a huge bright ball lit up the sky. About 5 minutes later the colourful people passed by. Apparently they were short one person and the aliens invaded.

Week 26 by Jacob The rebellion

My friend and I were reading a history book when we came upon a story about a rebellion…

It was about a time when a rebel leader grew great and powerful. The leader wanted more power and decided to raid a big and vast castle. The king was surprised when he saw a giant army heading towards him. He called the wizard and asked him to make a spell to freeze them. The wizard agreed and he forged a spell. He gave it to the king and he threw it at the leader.  He froze and his men were as still as a tree.

“That was a good story! “said my friend.

Week 26 Magic By Joe

It was a warm morning in Sydney. I woke up at 10 am and I was eating breakfast when I got a phone call from my friend, Darragh. We were planning on going around the city to try and cause some trouble.

The strange part about it was, that after everything we did wrong something serious would happen-as if we had a curse. It was when we were walking around we saw a large group of people turned into statues. We were bamboozled and scared  . We didn’t know if what had happened was our fault or was it a coincidence?

Week 26 Plastic Peril By Aidan

I was walking to the Park one day and when passing the docks I saw a vast amount of plastic warriors. It seemed they were being shipped in by an Irish liner.

The next day the same thing happened-  it was very peculiar. After school one day, Tom and I went to check it out.

“So what are we looking for? “said Tom.

“SSSsssh be quiet – I’m trying to listen for the liner’s horn,” I whispered back.

2 days later there was a huge package outside our house. I climbed to the top and there were plastic warriors as far as the eye could see…

Short story: Magic by Colin

I was at my father’s funeral, standing in between my Mother and older sister. Tears were stinging my eyes and rolling down my cheek. As I watched the coffin being lowered, I saw a faint flicker of blue underneath the coffin. Before I was able to point it out, the flicker was gone. After the funeral, when we were on our way home, the flicker of blue light was stuck in my mind. After a little bit of thought I came to the conclusion that I was hallucinating, but, just to be safe I would go back the next day to see if I really was hallucinating.

Meanwhile, underground a fairy commander named Rodger Barkley was sitting around an oval table. Three other fairy commanders were sitting around the table as well.  “This is a very important meeting,” started Rodger to his fellow commanders. “One of our main magic pipes has burst and it will take days to repair.” “But can’t we just use magic to repair it?” said the smallest of the group, Fred. “ Sadly not,” came Rodger’s reply.  “The laser barrier around the pipe has been locked so we can’t get in.”

At  11:24 am the next day, I hopped on my mountain bike and started down the road. The breeze was cold and the roads were wet but I still got to the graveyard. As I walked up the gravel path I felt an energy tugging at me. When I got to my father’s grave the pull had gotten a lot stronger.  I stretched my arm out and touched the headstone. Suddenly I was teleported to a small, darkroom.

There was a deep rumbling. “What was that?” said Fred in a worried, trembling voice. “Oh No” replied Rodger equally frightened. “A human!” “Oh No,” repeated the two others.
