Hi my name is GG  – it stands for Greasy Giraffe  I can’t stop sweating and some people call me greasy. I also live at the zoo.

The zookeeper gives me melted cheese with some salt on a leaf. Sometimes I try to Jump over the fence but my greasy feet make me slip. But one day I got over it and ran to the town park.


Week 29: Why? By Marc

Should I go in there or not? I was thinking to myself strangely.

It was a mysterious wall with an even more mysterious gate. I couldn’t see over it because it was as tall as a giraffe. I opened the gate and walked into the isolated land. Suddenly there was no gate behind me and no wall.

I was as pale as a ghost. Straight after that, I saw a man with greasy brown hair and his beard was full of salt. His mouth was open as wide as the sea and he told me “You shouldn’t have come here – now you’re stuck.”

He then continued eating his melted cheese sandwich. 

Week 29, Family Field Trip by Tim

My mom woke me up to go brush my teeth. After I finished my dad called me to come and eat breakfast. My dad had made the most amazing food in the world. He made brown bread with melted cheese on the top and greasy sausages with a pinch of salt.

After we finished eating we got ready to go to. We got in the car and drove to the zoo. On the way, we heard news on the radio that a giraffe had escaped from the zoo. We then saw the runaway giraffe pass us. It stopped and ate a few leaves off a tree. My dad called the guards and they got there in no time. My parents and I decided to go to the beach instead.

What a day!

FortNite Is Dangerous By Kacper

One day I was at my house playing Fortnite. A few minutes later I was playing Duos and I met this strange guy. His name was Greasy Giraffe. He wanted to add me to play with him and his friend.

When he invited me, my screen went black. Seconds later I saw a red screen with Greasy Giraffe and his friend Salted Fish. The ground was brown and red and he said he would find me.

As fast as possible I deleted them and reported every thing to the police. They found the guy in my shed and put him in jail. He used to be a toy producer before he melted them all and turned evil.

Week 29 Salt Bae’s Restaurant by Mathew O’G

It was 7 pm in New York City and Salt Bae’s restaurant was open. I heard about Salt Bae  – he has served Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronald and Paul Pogba. The restaurant had huge brown doors. I was very excited as it looked very fancy.

As I walked in, in open admiration I gazed around. We found a seat and we read the immense menu. Out of curiosity, I ordered the Greasy Giraffe.

After a long wait, the food arrived and it was steaming hot. Unsurprising the food was so good, it melted in my mouth

“Mark is escaping, I repeat Mark is escaping, close all exits!”shouted the warden. But it was too late. Warden Warren sent Simon on the mission to track him down. Simon tracked down where Mark used his phone recently. He found out that he had been using it in the town park very often. Simon also saw that he went there every night just before nine. Simon had an idea. He drove over to the town park car park and walked just outside the park where there had been what looked like burned trees. He crouched down there while being camouflaged. Next he put the silencer on, scoped in…”BANG!”

I was happy so we went to a shop to buy me a sandwich. We went home and I was very happy so I told my dad to take me back the next day. We went back and there was no forest.  It was all burned down so my Dad and I were very confused. So we just were fishing and I caught another one and it was way bigger than the one the previous day. My dad was very proud of me and now takes me fishing every time he goes.

Week 28: Rude robot By Marc


My father was a scientist and he made lots of bad inventions. This time he made an abominable shrinking robot. I was shrunk and teleported to a war. It was green people against rot people. The green people were protecting the plant of life. The rot people were trying to block the moon shining on to the plants so it would rot and the forest would die. They were riding bats.

Suddenly the green queen got killed and the plants started to rot. Suddenly my father came and he was a giant. He got all the bats to go away. 

Would he save the plants?

Week 28, The Infection by Tim

It has been 3 weeks since and scientists still hadn’t found the cure to what was causing plants and trees to die instantly.

Suddenly one day a scientist named Mr. Goodman had found the cure. Sadly an entire forest in Canada was wiped out by the infection. There were animals stuck under trees and they couldn’t get out. Mr. Goodman’s medicine had fixed the entire forest in hours. Mr. Goodman decided to make more medicine.

The medicine has saved the human race as without trees we would have all gone extinct. The medicine was used to grow trees and plants that were dying. Mr. Goodman has saved billions.

Week 28 Gone By Matthew D

“Finally I can rest my feet” I exclaimed as my fellow scouts and I were exhausted after a long day of walking.

My best friend Josh lit a fire and we all laid down in front of it. Our scout leader Marcus told a story to all of us.  We were all listening open mouthed as he told the scary story. After that we all went to bed to rest our weary heads but nobody quinched the fire.

Cock-a doodle doo … I heard as the sun rose early in the morning. When I emerged from my tent … everything apart from my tent was burnt.

Week 28 World War 3 By Danny

On the 22nd of April 2000 World War 3 started between the English and the Irish. The Irish were hiding in large holes in tents so the English wouldn’t see them. The situation was fraught with danger and the troops didn’t know what was going to happen to them.

The English were moving forward cautiously but they didn’t see the Irish hiding in the tents. The Irish were about to destroy the English.

BOOM, BANG, CRASH and the English were down. The Irish had smug smiles on their face as they had won World War 3.

…Well, that’s what my Granddad told me.

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. 😥
