Week 6 Fire by Ciarán

It was 2 weeks after the war and I was taking a bath but I clumsily spilled my orange juice and it went into the electric socket. My house went up in flames but luckily I live next to a firefighter and he called the fire brigade.

But when they got to my house I realised that my daughter was still inside probably dancing to the pop song  “Danced with the stars.” Luckily she was ok but now I will never bring orange juice into the bathroom again.

Week 5 TOYS by Ciaran

As I was putting my old toys in the attic I tripped and all the toys fell out of the box. I picked them up 1 by 1 and when I got to the last one then I realised that it reminded me of a time when I was small and used to play with these toys.
I used to spend nearly 9 full hours playing with them. But then I had to go to college so I brought one toy with me and left the rest of them in a high place where it was so high that my younger sister could not reach them.

Week 4 The war by Ciaran

It was 1998 and it was six months into the war. We were being attacked by the Andiecy’s Army and if you do not know what is –  it basically is a group of animals heads on statues that can move with RAY GUNS!

I went into the woods to take cover but then General Goat and two soldiers cornered me but before I knew it there was a thick mist descending  and I escaped.

Two weeks later the war was over and we were still celebrating. We were happy that we won.

Week 3 Haunted By Ciaran

I was saving for a year now. I could finally afford the limed addition Joney Orlando handwritten signed remote-control race car.
The next day I was racing to the store and there it was- I bought it but I  was not allowed to use it until my birthday because it was my early birthday present.
I opened it and put the batteries into it but it seemed to be going backwards- without me pressing any button.  I thought my sister was pranking me but she was not.  Then a shiver went up my spine –  Was I being haunted?

Week 2 Books By Ciaran

I was reading a book called Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. It was the best book I had ever read.
There was a boy named Charlie Bucket and his family was very poor. Mr. Willy Wonka was famous for his chocolate. Later on in the book a very rich girl ate a special gobstopper that made her swell up in a kind of a mauve colour.
That inspired me to write my own book about a teacher who turned into an alligator and trying to escape climbed in a vent and that would be very tricky.

Week 1 The Gym by Ciaran

It was 9:oo pm.  My brother and I were late when I got to school.  We were too late to get the bus to the amusement park so we walked home. The next day was Saturday and it was” Father bring son to work day” and my dad worked in the Gym.
My dad had a lunch break and we wanted to try out some of the equipment and test it. My brother went over to the pull-up bar but out of nowhere my brother was shot and pulled the alarm to save me.
Sadly he died and to this day a statue of two hands lays right outside the Gym.

Week 36 Knotted by Ciaran

I was just in the supermarket looking for some food when I saw a strange man carrying some kind of gun.  I hid behind the counter with the owner. I could hear his footsteps getting closer and closer and closer. I was terrified.

Then that was the moment I made a run for it … but I didn’t get very far. I ran right into him.


I could hear the sirens outside. I jumped at him and then I realised that the gun was a fake. They put up a statue of a gun with a knot to remember my bravery (:

Day after day she was thinking of a plan to get out. Then one day she looked at the courtyard wall with a menacing look and had a plan… but she needed some items to escape –  a rope, wooden planks, strength, and bravery.

Week 33 Chestnut By Ciaran

Have you ever wondered if a normal chestnut tree could grow in  one of the coldest places in the world?
My friend and I were chosen to explore one of the coldest places on planet Earth – it was called Brenach. As we were travelling through the cold desert we saw an inexplicable sighting – there was an ordinary chestnut tree growing.
It seemed every time we went near it, it felt like it was moving away.  It was getting annoying but then we saw a sign saying hazardous area -do not disturb.
I now had an idea what that was in the in ice desert.

Week 32 Spy BY Ciaran

I was in a vent under the Statue of Liberty in an underwater base.

“Pisshshshs , Son here are the instructions… pishshsoo.”

But I didn’t understand the instructions. I did not want to be a buffoon and get closer and maybe get caught. I did not want to take any chances. I better retreat but a good spy never backs down from a challenge.

Next minute I heard a man in the vents. I crawled away and went home got into bed and told my dad that my mission was a FAILURE :[.

The day of the race: the first thing before the 200m race I gave the men the effervescent potion.  Although they ran quickly they still not making enough progress …sadly no gold.

Week 26 Jackdaw by Ciaran

It was hopeless.  I was as thin as a fish that had not been fed for an entire year and that is a long time.

I have been in prison for so long my cellmate has forgotten his surname. But then one day out of nowhere a tiny jackdaw swooped in and snatched the shiny and yellow keys of our cell from the prison guard table.

I called the Jackdaw over to me but then the cantankerous guard came into our cell and asked us to give him back his keys.  We said that we didn’t steal his keys.

There it was an enormous cup in front of me. I did not know what to do.
Should I call 9111?
My mom would know what to do. “What ? ” another one appeared and another and another.

I was afraid so I ran home. I came back with my mum but they were gone all. Instead, there was a man with a knife there . We ran as if we were being chased by a tiger. When we got home we closed our eyes and when we opened them he was gone. We were safe.

Have you ever wondered how you would feel if you were cursed?

This happened to me!

It was a stormy night my parents and I were on our way home.  My dad was a little cantankerous because my mom always gave me what I wanted when I wanted it.

That night at dinner time I munched and gobbled my food and went up to bed. As I  turned off all the lights I saw a spirit who said you will be forever cursed.

I ran downstairs as fast as I could but my parents were not there. I looked outside and I saw two small wooden statues…

Week 20 Going to the Theme Park by Ciaran

My friend and I were at the theme park and we were going on our first roller coaster. My friend said it was inexplicable.

We courageously got into our seats and my friend Tommy was a bit problematic about heights.  He held on to the bar as tight as a gorilla who sat on a pin.

3.2.1.     Zoom     We were moving very fast when we went down the steep hill. After the roller coaster was over we got ice cream and then after that, we all cheered as  Tommy had faced his fear of heights.

We finished by going on the fair wheel.

Week 19 Poisonous Potion

One sunny day I was testing out a rocket that goes up and comes down with a parachute. I put in a test subject and if it goes wrong I pour some kind of chemical that makes it indestructible.

I fired the rocket up into the air but there was a problematic gust of wind which blew the rocket into a gutter. Then it came down the drainpipe.  How will I get it back? I wondered.  Then in the gutter it started to grow and grow and grow…

We absconded from my house and sneaked out to the mansion. Suddenly the fireplace burst into flames. A man appeared out of nowhere.  He was as ugly as a donkey with no fur and he told us his story.  In the beginning, he was a radioactive spider superhero.

What was that supposed to mean?

Week 14 Monkey escape by Ciaran

Waiting and plotting my plan to get out of here. There was pandemonium everywhere just to see a red butt monkey.  I stood out like a peacock in the snow. After three years now I finally got out and ran straight into the forest.

Suddenly something was crawling up my back …it was a tarantula. Frightened that it might bite me I scraped my back off the first tree I saw. Then I saw flashing lights and the zookeeper caught me. I was so frustrated because I was planning this for years and all the work I put into it.
