Week 36 Court by Aidan

Dear Judge,

I can explain.

My brother and I were playing star wars with our fake guns and lightsabers .We were leaping from couch to couch making pew pew pew sounds. It was great fun.

I picked up another toy gun but didn’t shoot. I pretended to reload the gun. While I was doing it I noticed how real it looked so I thought – this is a keeper. It was a revolver toy gun…

Week 35 The running race by Aidan

The four contenders jogged to the starting line – Katie ,Tom , Charlie and Alex. There was a sound of a horn and everybody ran off. Katie was in the lead straight away until Tom caught up and passed her out.  Alex was way behind and Charlie started so fast he tripped and he was taken away.

Katie and Tom were tying. Suddenly Katie tripped and Alex and Tom zoomed past her. Katie was hurt but she kept on going. Katie didn’t win but she did cross the finish line. The crowds went wild-  however, she couldn’t believe what she had just done.

Week 32 Mad Mission by Aidan

I was sitting in my office working when I got a call.

“Hi Agent Tom I have a mission for you – it’s a tricky one but I think you can handle it”. “Go to Allowside,26, Cork and check their mailbox –  Charlie out”.

Straight away I got up and hopped into the car and drove off. When I got there I saw a blue mailbox and I opened it. There was a red note inside it with all these pictures of wires and which one to cut first.  On the top of the page it said bomb defusing.

I loved bomb defusing but where was the bomb?  I didn’t understand the instructions.

Week 31 Penelope the Prancing Parrot by Aidan

Penelope the prancing parrot is a dancing parrot and she always loves being a buffoon. She lives in the Waterfly woods and has many arguments with Sam the Spying Giraffe.

Her best friend is Bertie the Bumbling Bee. She also has healing powers. If you are dying or hurt Penelope dances around you, and you feel a lot better. She has a really strong beak so she can bite through the voids.

Week 28 Long Legs by Aidan

People say that once every year one lucky kid gets to see Long Legs.

Long Legs is a mythical creature that is claimed to be only legs. One year that lucky kid was me. In the middle of the night, I heard a voice saying ” Go down to the woods.” It kind of creeped me out but I wanted to know what was there. So I got out of bed and walked down to the woods .It was freezing outside.

Suddenly there was a ruffling sound in the bush. That’s when I noticed that I was one of the luckiest kids ever. …I went to school the next day shouting “I saw long legs! ” but nobody believed me. From that day on I have been studying long legs and trying to prove he was real.


Week 27 : The relay race by Aidan

Charlie, Tom, and Bob were entering a relay race and they had to train. All day long every day they trained but they still didn’t make enough progress. The day before the race came quickly and the three men got better and better.

On the day of the race, the three men were trembling but they were also confident that they would win. The three of them walked into the stadium and lined up they were handed a yellow bowling pin and the other team got a blue.

“On your marks  – get set – go” the man shouted.  Up first was Charlie against Haska.  Charlie was as fast as lightning and gave the pin to Tom. Tom wasn’t that fast. Although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress to win the race. Would they win?

Week 26 : Kicked out by Aidan

My brother Charlie and I live in a tiny shack – we are poor. Every night after dinner I am ravenous for more food. We have soup for dinner a lot and we barely ever have anything else to eat other than soup.

One day a man came to our house and asked for our house taxes. We had to pay £200. But we couldn’t as we only had a tiny bit of money. He took out a thin pen and wrote down on a piece of paper –  No taxes from the Cronins and kicked us out.

That was last time we were going to be sitting in front of a warm, cozy fire. It was hopeless – we would never get our house back. When everything seemed lost we saw a shiny yellow thing on the ground…

Week 25 : Ending Easter by Aidan

I hate Easter …anything to do with Easter. I hate Bunnies, chickens, eggs and chocolate eggs. I had decided that I had to put an end to it.

The Easter bunny never came to my house but he always went to my neighbour’s. So the following night I was going to capture the Easter bunny and give him to a pet shop. The next night I walked to my neighbour’s house and waited for the Easter bunny.

Suddenly I heard a hopping. I looked around but there as nobody there. I looked up and saw the Easter bunny on the roof. But how did he get up there? I thought. I climbed up one of the pipes and SNATCH I had got him in the sack.

Now all I had to do was get him to the pet shop and that would put an end to Easter.

Week 24 : The Teleporting Teacup by Aidan

I raced my sister to the swings and jumped on one. We had a competition of who could swing the highest. When I was swinging I noticed a teacup in the ground.
“Where did it come from?” Lucy asked.

I had no idea. I picked it up and … FLASH… I looked around and noticed that I had teleported to my granny’s house. She was sitting down in her chair.I saw the cup again and touched it… FLASH … It had happened again.

I looked around and saw the Queen she was on her throne. I spotted the cup and ran for it but just before my finger touched it the Queen asked ”Where are you going?” in a posh voice…

Week 23 : Getting Rid of the Boss by Aidan

What if I was in charge? I thought in my jail cell.

The boss messed everything up every time. Each time we escaped he started shouting, ” yippee yippee – we are free ” and then the cops would put us back in our cell. Tonight we were not going let him do that.

When he was fast asleep the crew and I dug a hole out and we crawled through.That wasn’t all we had to do. Next, we would have to climb over the fence. We quickly but carefully climbed over and…We made it!

We ran to an alley way and hid. Bob asked me, ” who is going to be the boss now ?” and I said “ME” with a grin.

Week 22 The flying goldfish by Aidan

“What are we going to do next?” asked Professor Brown.

”We could make a goldfish fly” Jim said.

“We could never do that – we don’t have the right potion!”

Slowly Jim held up a small glass. Brown looked forward and saw the flying potion – it was inexplicable – he actually had it. The next day Brown went home with the potion and gave it to his goldfish.  It was ravenous and drank it all.

A few hours later Brown went back to the shelf, climbed up the ladder and checked on the goldfish.Brown looked all around until a goldfish flew past him.

“It worked!” he shouted with glee.

Week 21 : The Wood War by Aidan

“Join the wood army” Woody was shouting as Woodo the woodman was wakling through the town.


Woodo was delighted to join. The train was to leave at 9’o clock the following day and the war to start at twelve.

That night Woodo got preapared and packed clothes ,shoes and food. He walked to the train station and hopped on. He knew that the wood army would annihilate the leaves.

When he got there he started trembling. They took their position on the battle field. The leaves walked onto the pitch and stood for a few seconds until someone shouted ”CHARGE!”

They all ran onto the field – this was the start of the first wood war…


Week 20 : African Adventure by Aidan

My family and I live in Africa and we are very poor. But that doesn’t stop us adventuring.

One sunny day we went out to the tall grass and saw a bug that we had never seen before. Tom and I picked it up and started shrinking.

“We might as well have some fun while we are down here,” I thought.

A few hours later we heard our mom’s call. So while a peregrine falcon wasn’t looking we hopped on its back. Suddenly it took off. We were moving very fast when we spotted our house. When it landed we jumped off and magically turned back to normal.

This was the best day ever!

Week 19: Rooftop Rendezvous By Aidan

I was on the tallest house in town. I had done this before so surely I could do it again. I took a step back and leaped… I made it again.

I kept on walking on until I saw Bruce up to his usual shenanigans. I saw him go through a window of a house and come out with a necklace.

The rotten filthy old cat.

When he had left I kept on walking then I came to the washing line. I took a gulp and walked across. Finally I got to the meeting point but there was nobody there. I thought I saw something. It came down the drainpipe.  I looked forwards and saw a dog!

What would I do now?

Week 18 The stone bee by Aidan

One bright sunny day Kevin and Charlie were going for a snack in the South Pole Inn. Just when they were about to go in they saw a grey bee. Kevin was terrified (as usual). Charlie was interested in the bee and went closer (even though he is usually a scardey cat like Kevin).When Charlie got too close he got stung. He started turning grey and froze.

Then Kevin chased the bee. He got stunned and froze too. Someone noticed and she called the ambulance. When Kevin woke up he was in the hospital…

One bright sunny day Professor  Snake was trying to turn a cheetah red for the science contest. He needed a hair of a buffalo, a spike of a porcupine and a scale of a red-bellied snake. After mixing all that together Professor Snake brought in the cheetah and poured the potion on it.

The cheetah began bouncing around and bombarded towards the professor. The cheetah was red -it was completely red. Before it was yellow but now it was red. As Professor Snake looked at the clock he noticed it was time for the science fair. He jumped on his bike and cycled to the science fair with the cheetah behind him… he won first prize and he was delighted!

Week 15 Hawaiian mystery by Aidan

Was Tom kidnapped? Was he scared? Was he killed?

“Yes, yes and maybe,” I said with a grin.

“If you want to understand I have to tell you the story,” I said while being bombarded with questions.

In the beginning, Tom and I were having loads of fun until smoke came out of the volcano.  It was a Hawaiian omen that meant the spirits were coming. I shouted to Tom “turn around” but he didn’t listen. Suddenly there was a growling sound and when I turned around Tom had vanished – he was taken by the spirits. Nobody knew what happened next.  It remains a mystery…

Week 14 Odd and angry by Aidan

One day I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock. I looked at the clock and suddenly noticed that it was one in the morning. That is weird. I remember setting the clock to go off at seven. I got up anyway and started to read the newspaper.

Then finally after six long hours of reading I got up properly.  Ravenous I grabbed the cereal and finished it off. After that I went to work.  On the way I saw the hot dog man kicking his cart.  What’s wrong with him? I thought. When we got to the office there was a monkey sitting down at my desk!

Wait – odd things – angry people – Is it Friday the thirteenth?

Week 11 The thought of dying by Aidan

One night I was in my bed and I couldn’t get a thought out of my head. It wasn’t a good one – it was an extremely bad one – it was the thought of dying.

It was so sad just thinking of me slowly passing away. I tried to think of something happy but then I thought of the most wonderful thing you could think of. My family. Mother is so nice and my father always goes fishing with me.

Then BAM- I ended up in the middle of the forest and a hooded figure started walking towards me.  He was holding a reaper and then he slowly said “it’s time”

“No I am too young. I have to see my family again. No no nooo!…

Week 10 Prison life by Aidan

The gang and I were in prison one night when we cooked up a menacing plan. Right beside us was the museum –  so we were going to dig a hole and go into the museum and steal the diamonds!

Once we finished digging we crawled through the hole and out the other side. Then we ran into the museum. Accidently I set off the alarm so I quickly grabbed the diamonds. We split up and I ran out of the museum and into someone’s house. I got into the bed holding the diamonds when the police came in and I pretended I was asleep. Then I thought where would I hide it all?…

One cold dark night Tom was in his bedroom thinking about what he was going to do in London! But then he was reminded of his cruel aunt and uncle who were looking after him as his mom and dad were killed in a car crash. Tom has never been taken anywhere except school.

A few hours later they were in London- it was amazing at night when they were shopping. Just when they were walking out of the shop Tom saw a building move. It looked like a bus then it started to reverse.  It was coming closer and closer to Tom- suddenly it came to a halt. A man came out saying get in- get in. Tom did not know what to do then without thinking he jumped on. A while later it stopped at a huge building in the middle of nowhere. As he walked in he saw ghosts everywhere then he knew this was a start to a new life.

Week 7 The Big dare by Aidan

On Halloween night my friends and I were out trick-or-treating. We came to a huge broken down building.

After a while we started playing truth or dare. First I dared Tom to run toLidll which was at the other side of town and then come back and he did it!

Then it was my turn. Charlie dared me to go into the run down building and come out the other side.

I wanted to get over it so I ran in as fast as I could. I got to the other side so quickly. But when I was so close to the door the roof broke and as the door slammed I knew I was not alone…

Week 5 : My treasured item by Aidan

I got it on my eighth birthday and got it from Mom. It can do lots of stunts and I can take it around town. It is fun in the woods and great in the park but bring it to mud and it lets off dirty sparks. When I go to school I put it by the shed.  When I come home I go on it first, then dinner and bed. When I take it out I think about races- me zooming around the corner. My family’s faces would be filled with glee and I am thinking yippee! My friends think it is awesome. I hope you will too.

One day Professor Crocodile was in his lab. He was trying to turn a crocodile purple. He needed a spiders leg, one chocolate finger and of course a bit of purple paint.He put it all in one tube and then he shook it around.

Finally he brought in the crocodile and poured the mix on top of it. Oh no he had put in growing paint accidently. Quickly he twisted the crocodile’s tail but it did not work and the crocodile just snapped back at him. It was too difficult and now he was stuck with a giant crocodile in his lab!

One day Austin and Kevin were walking in town. They turned the corner to go to Charlies Burgeria when they saw a huge metal thing lying there. Austin saw paper, flowers and loads of balls. Kevin wondered what happened there? Then a boy came along and said my dad is missing.

It was Tom! He burst into tears. Then we noticed a trail of blood going over the flowers and around the bend. We followed it to a huge old house and we walked in. Then we felt a cold breeze go around us and more blood dribbling down little cracks. We followed it…

Week 1 Into the Woods by Aidan

“So what lies ahead of the lake?” said Tom thinking.

“Probably a dark deep tunnel,” Samo said thinking out loud.

Sarah said “It’s too dangerous.

Then something pushed them in. Sarah said that she knew something bad would happen. Then something whooshed in the trees.

Tom said “let’s go check it out.” It was a huge forest. Then Samo said “are you crazy man?” No I am serious,” answered Tom.

Sarah shouted,” this forest is huge.” They kept on walking and they found a man. Tom asked him what was his name. He turned around with a big ugly face and said , “My name is Gulther. Have you seen any trolls? …
