The Enviroment By Kacper

One day my friend and I went to the park to play soccer. When we arrived at the park, it was all dirty and the trees were all burnt.

” What is happening ? ” I asked a worker.

He answered me, ” We are destroying the trees  to build a soccer pitch.”

My friend was excited but I was sad.

” You can’t do that” I shouted.

So I went to the Gardai and reported it. They said that they couldn’t do anything so I decided to gather help from the Tidy Towns Committee and we have helped to save the park.

Please try not to litter.

Week 28 Project Pollution

So yesterday our teacher asked us to do a project on pollution and I thought hmmm? What if I put in a paragraph of me talking about a polluted area … that is sure to get me straight A’s.

When I went home and I googled polluted places on earth in Ireland especially in Cork. It showed me a forest alongside a place called Kanturk that had burnt down due to all of the toxic fumes.  That’s near where I live so I rushed out the door and found the place.

Suddenly I heard a rustling of leaves and tiny feet tapering along the ground and got knocked out a second later by a branch swung down on my head. The last thing I remember was being carried along the ground by little elves…then I woke up in my own bed at home …

Week 28 The Forest By Szymon

There is a forest in Northern America and whenever a person goes into it they never come back.

A person called Chris is going to explore it. He knows he might not come back but he isn’t going back. As he enters the forest he can already hear the laughter that makes his hair stand up. As he continues into the forest he has a sense of foreboding. He turns around and sees little shadows. Suddenly he is surrounded by little creatures so he starts running…

Week 27 The Jerseys By Ciaran

I couldn’t believe it. We made it into the finals and I had to wash the jerseys.

A few days later after washing the jerseys…                                                                             Why-why-why did I put my sister’s red socks in with the jerseys?

On the day of the match, our manager was giving out to me because all of our jerseys were pink

“It is still the same jersey” I said.

“but it is the wrong colour,” shouted the manager.

When the other team saw them they started roaring laughing.

What have I done?  😥

Week 27 THE FLAMINGO By :Tadhg

Jake looked at the flamingo.
“Why is this flamingo orange?” he questioned.
“Nobody cares” said Tom the class bully.
“But it’s orange – it’s supposed to be pink”.
Jake thought that maybe it was a parttime secret agent and he got painted orange to stand out. Maybe he was a criminal and painted himself a different colour every time he did a robbery.  Or maybe he’s not actually a flamingo -maybe he’s a lion, a zebra, an owl or maybe even an elephant. Jake was confused  – why was the flamingo orange? He asked the zookeeper. The zookeeper said, “It was just born that way”.
“I still think it’s an elephant though”, said Jake happily.

Week 27 The Painter By Szymon

“Remember – it has to be green” the lady snapped. 
Suddenly the painter remembered that he had a secret. It was that he was colourblind. He had only applied for this job because it was easy money. While he was picking out the colour he knew what might happen.
The person he was painting for was as vicious as a lion. He knew he would be in big trouble. A week passed and he was finished painting. The lady came into the house and she was astonished. The lady started screaming at the man.
”  But it is the wrong colour!”

Week 27 : Pink uniform by Oisin

It all began when I was helping my mom with the laundry.  I was taking all the laundry out of the washing machine when I realised that my school jumper turned pink.

School started the following day.  When my mom found out she was really cross.  I looked all over the house trying to find another jumper but I found out that they had all turnd pink.

I was getting very worried.  What if I had to go to school in a pink uniform? Well, it happened … I went to school in a pink uniform and I was the laughing stock of the school

Where Am I ? By Kacper

It was really cold. I had just woken up in a dark house. It Seemed like  I was on the 2nd floor. I saw something that looked like blood. I ran through the corridor and down the stairs. The door was shut and everything seemed wrong. I found an old torch that shone really brightly next to the door and checked the place out. I heard some whispers in the kitchen so I went in… but when I went in I heard…SURPRISE… I asked what was going on. One of my friends responded,” it’s your birthday today did you forget ?” I responded, “yes I totally forgot”.

Week 26 School Fight By Jack

It was a Monday and as usual it was a bad Monday but it wasn’t bad just because it was the start of the school  week- on  this special day there was a fight.

It started during Irish class.  Jerry started making fun of Tom but Tom was sick of it so at break time Tom started throwing punches.  Of course we were a class boys and nobody was helping Tom nor Jerry – we all just gathered around and started chanting fight , fight , fight.

After 2 minutes of them fighting still no teacher came so I decided to break it up because Jerry looked like he had a broken nose and Tom had a big bruise on his chin.  I told my friend to hold Tom and I’d hold Jerry so my friend went behind Tom and caught his two wrists and got him to the ground.  I did the same but when I was trying to get him down he tripped me, twisted around and punched me in the ribs as I was falling.

As I got up  I think Jerry saw the look in my eye because he started saying sorry really quickly but I was so cross that  I gave him a bruise on the chin.

Week 26: Malicious Mathew By Naglis

“Aha I’m finally finished” I sighed. I just needed to pop into the store for some batteries to start it up. I skipped joyfully to the shop and darted back home excitedly.

Meanwhile Mathew (my little brother) was at home and “accidentally” dropped my precious invention which I had worked on. I galloped into the room with exhaustion and realised it had broken.


I was so cross that I gritted my teeth and clenched my fists tightly together. My bright pink lip started quivering up and down. I was fizzing like a freshly poured cup of lemonade.


Week 26, Not My Day, by Mikolaj

I was at my friend’s house and he got the game I wanted all my life. It was his birthday too and he got loads of money from his family. He even had his Confirmation the next day. That game was for one player. There were so many people at his house so it would take a long time to take turns.

Sadly I was in the bathroom when they were picking who should be first. I came back and I asked ” am I first?”  They answered that I was last and I was very mad. One game is thirty minutes long so it would take a long time for my turn. It was only the second game and my Mom said that we were going home. I was so cross that I could have exploded.

Week 26 The Game by: Tadhg

I walked happily onto the pitch. I could hear the roaring of the crowd in my ears. I then saw the opposition. They were all as huge as boulders . I then knew that this wasn’t going to be a clean game. The other team was definitely going to win.

As they passed by I heard them laughing at me. Then the whistle blew they had the ball and scored straight away. I was so cross that I lashed out and kicked their best player in the shin. The referee blew the whistle and it was a red card. I stormed off the pitch with rage.

Week 26 Disheartened By Matthew D

“No, ” screamed, the crowd as Limerick scored a point in the dying moments of the game. The coach was cheering us on but it was of no use. We tried until the bitter end.  We all exerted ourselves but then we heard what we all dreaded to hear … the sound of the ref’s whistle filling the grounds.

I glanced over at my disheartened brother and saw his lip quivering. I was so cross that I  clenched my fists together and punched the ground. My teammates consoled me as I watched Limerick lift the Liam McCarthy.

Week 26, The New Inmate by Tim

I was going back to my cell when I saw a short man in my cell. One of the guards said that it was my new inmate and his name was Tom. Tom was standing in the corner complaining that he was innocent. He was whimpering to guards that he didn’t belong there.

I walked over to the bars and I explained about my escape plan to the prisoners across the cell. I went to finish digging the tunnel I’ve been digging. I told Tom to distract the guards.

But Tom snitched and I was caught. Later I was sent to a maximum security prison in Washington. I was so cross that I kicked the bars of my cell.

Week 26 The Race Car By Ciarán

I could finally afford it The XxRace CarxX 9000. I had been saving my money for 3 months now.

Once I bought it,it needed to charge so my mam said to leave it on charge for the night and that I could play with it in the morning.

During the night I heard some bangs – after 5 minutes another BANG and another and another … The next morning I went down to play with my toy but when I went to it, it was destroyed.

Unfortunately I couldn’t play with my toy and I was so cross that it was gone. 😥

Week 26 The Famine By Szymon

Hungrily I pulled out a potato but something seemed odd about it. It looked like it got blight. Ravenously I ripped out the rest of the potatoes. They all looked off. I was apprehensive because I was too poor to buy more crops.
I was so cross that I lobbed all the potatoes across the field. Quickly the news spread across the country that all the potatoes had gotten blight. I knew my only chance of survival was to get on a ship because I didn’t want to go to a workhouse but what would happen to me on one of those ships?

Grounded by Oisin

My favourite game was Age of Mythology –  It’s really old and no one plays it except me. But that game went missing and I trashed the house looking for it. I didn’t find it and I was so cross that I got sent to my room. I was in my room for at least an hour.  My mom told me to stay in my room until they were done tidying up. I never knew I made such mess and I was totally fed up of staying in my room. But then I found my disk and I was going to play it right away …if I wasn’t grounded.

Week 26 Lash Out By:Mathew OG

It was on this day that Sergeant Nick would lead us out proudly onto the battlefield. Sergeant Nick wasn’t a very nice man –  he always took things out on me like I was the troublesome one.

At this current moment, he was shouting  “you go out there and show ’em what you’re made of !”

This made me furious and very annoyed. He kept giving orders until I was so cross that I reached into my back pocket and … BANG!

Nick fell to the ground, blood pouring out of his chest.

” What have you done?” James roared.

” I’ve done us all a favour, ” I answered back smartly.

Week 26: Escape By Sean

That one night in an old little shop, all that I could see was a shining red and blue light. There was a black gun aiming for my head. …

In prison, I watched every person –  every step they took. At lunch, I waited for the guard to move away from the office. Then I ran into the office and luckily the window was opened.

The main entrance was being watched by two guards. As they were walking I threw a rock and I ran. Unfortunately, the guard saw me. I was so cross that I threw a rock at him. …I won’t get out of jail now for a long time.

Week 24 A box by Jack

One day I was walking home from my friend’s birthday party when I noticed a box made of cardboard on the footpath and of course I bent down to pick it up. On the side of it, it said Raymandos Great Circus and on the other side of it, it said Danger do not open.  But of course, I opened it and it was empty.  What a surprise!

But little did I know,  I had unleashed a danger on the whole world.

Week 24 The Box By Szymon

Not too long ago a box full of expensive jewellery was stolen and everyone was looking for it. We were looking for it for about two weeks but we couldn’t find it. One day as I was walking at the fringe of the town I was looking in the bushes. Suddenly I found a box and it was the same one that has been missing. I opened it but it was empty. What a surprise!
Then I saw a man sneaking to a car with the jewellery and I called the police. The man was caught but not all the jewellery was found.

Week 24 Empty! by Mathew OG

I was walking on the fringe of town just alongside the bank when a man came bursting out the door. He was short and muscular and he had a backpack full of money. I curiously but stealthily chased him.

“HEY STOP RIGHT THERE” but he was in peals of laughter and kept running.

He got into the van and drove off leaving smoke from the exhaust of his van. I was able to catch up with him as the town was bustling with people because it was St.Patricks Day. The moneybag fell out of the back of the van…empty, what a surprise!

Week 24 April Fool’s Day By Danny

It was April Fool’s Day 2017 and all my family take it very seriously. We always trick my younger brother John as it was his birthday. It’s as if he was born by an accident.

For his birthday my mom made him a delectable sponge cake – it looked scrumptious.

At three o clock, my brother’s friends came over and we were having great fun. After the party, I gave John his present. But when he opened it,  he said ” Empty. What a surprise! “

Week:24 The robbery By:Tadhg

The wailing sirens wouldn’t stop ringing in my head. I knew that stealing was wrong, but I had to do it to get by. The wall was only meters away. As I jumped my leg got cut on the wire but other than that I was fine.

The throbbing in my leg now was unbearable and I was worried that I’d be caught. The bloodhounds were getting closer and closer by the minute. I only had one option … to hide.  If the bloodhounds couldn’t find me nothing could. I decided to climb up a tree. Surprisingly I wasn’t found. I walked home happily. When I got home I checked my bag holding the money –  it was empty. What a surprise!

Week 24 Irritated By Matthew D

It was Christmas Day and all of my family was going to be at my house as we were hosting Christmas dinner.

“Oh no” I  said in my head as my cousin that I loathed walked in the door.

As he gave me my present he had a smug smile on his face. But when I opened it it was empty. “What a surprise!” I exclaimed sarcastically.

I had to sit beside him while eating. My mom could sense the tension building and she pulled me to her side and gave me a stern talking to – she said “just one more hour and he’ll be gone”.

So when that hour was up she told me that I did a good job.

Week 24, The wallet by Tim

One day I was walking home from the shop and on the ground I saw a brown wallet on the floor. I got excited because I thought that there would be a lot of money in the wallet. I put the wallet in my pocket and I ran home. When I got home I rushed upstairs as fast as the speed of sound. Quickly I opened the wallet and I was very disappointed because the wallet was empty. What a surprise! I then realised that the wallet was my brother’s because it had his name on it. I felt very stupid …

Week 24, by Mikolaj

I was a homeless kid and I really needed a pen because I needed to write my plan for the following day because my brain isn’t that good for remembering stuff. I was not finding a pen yet and it was late.

Suddenly I saw a man dropping one by accident. I didn’t want to ask him if he needed it because I needed it more. I checked if there was ink inside the pen and there wasn’t, it was empty. What a surprise. I was mad and I had anger issues…
