Week 16 The Crash by Dylan

I was sweating. This was the biggest moment of my life. If I won this race I was the Formula 1 champion of the world. There was music blaring in the background. My furry mascot, Ryan the Rhino cheered me on as I walked nervously to my vehicle.

I started out when suddenly, CRASH!!!! I lost control of my car and it went flying off the road. I climbed slowly out of the wreckage and got away with only minor injuries.

I later found out my rival driver hijacked my car and did something to the engine so I would lose…

Week 14 The bee apocalypse by Dylan

It was pandemonium.

We were experimenting on wasps to make them bigger and more robust to be able to use them as war animals. But somehow, they were now gold and going MAD!

They broke through the windows at astonishing speed and were heading for the city. They started destroying cars and buildings and even people. Then they started connecting and formed one giant one. It started sucking up everything in sight including our lab.

The army came and started shooting it but it just sucked them. Then the air force came and I realised that they were our last hope or else the world would end…











Week 13 The Heroes by Dylan

I thought Paul and Billy were acting peculiar until I found out their secret…

I was strolling home from school thinking about how erratic Paul and Billy were acting in school today. Then I saw them walking up ahead whispering to each other. They walked down an alley and  I followed them. I saw them putting on some weird suits and WHOOSH, they took off and flew away .

“I didn’t know they could FLY ” I chuckled  to myself.

They saw me and zoomed back to the ground .

“Do not tell anyone what you saw!” said Paul menacingly .

“Ok ” I squeaked in fright .

We are all great friends now.

The boat to freedom by Dylan

“We have to get out of here,” sighed my sister Sandra.

“I know, I heard that a ship is leaving Cork Harbour in 2 days,” I added.

The famine had already taken our parents and we decided that we wouldn’t let it take us.

” Cork Harbour is 150 km away . We will never make it ” she whimpered sadly.

“We might if we leave now, ” I answered determinedly.

We set off on our journey with a lot of water and a bit of food because food was extremely scarce. After about 50 km of walking all our food and water was GONE!

“What are we going to do “? cried Sandra.

“Keep moving, ” I replied brightly.

But I started to lose my determination after about another 20 km. After that every step was agonising; every movement sapped away our precious energy. Our breath was ragged, there was sweat trickling down our face and our legs were aching. Then it was like we saw heaven; there in front of us was a clean river of water full of fish. I was so happy. I dived into the cool water and drank mouthfuls of water and caught about 10 fish with my bare hands. That got us more determined than ever and after a short rest, we strolled off again as happy as ever.

When we arrived at Cork Harbour, we cried tears of happiness. But the weather was ferocious, the wind was blowing against us and the waves were like skyscrapers. We ran out to a few very slippy rocks and we could see the boat, but it was leaving…

I was the saddest I had ever been… until the boat pulled up beside us !

“I thought it was leaving,” laughed Sandra.

“So did I,” I sobbed exhilarated.

We made it to America and lived a happy life.

Week 11 The Kidnapping by Dylan

“Get in the van,” said the man in the ski mask.

I was on a walk with my friend Conor when a white van pulled up and a man threw us in the back. He took us to an old warehouse and tied us to chairs. He went into the drawer and got a tub of Nutella and put a white powder in it.

I then realised the truth-  IT WAS POISON!!!!! He told Conor to eat it .

“No,” he said “I like marmite. ”

The police then kicked down the door and arrested the man. He forgot to take our phones and on the way and I called the police and told them the code word was – no I like marmite.


Week 10 The Fire by Dylan

It was pandemonium. Some buffoon bombarded my house with numerous fireworks and now it was on fire ! The menacing red and orange flames demolished everything in sight.

I woke up first to an avalanche of flames consuming my room. I covered my mouth and dashed to my parents room and pounced on their bed to wake them up. When they were awake I ran to my sister’s room to wake her up.

The fire brigade was  alerted to the scene by our neighbours .We all escaped through my bedroom window and the fire brigade saved our dog.

Sadly our house was consumed by the vast amount of flames.

Week 9 The Carnival of Doom by Dylan

The sweet smell of popcorn crept up my nose. I was at the carnival with my friend Gavin. It was announced over the loudspeaker to report to the big tent . On the way there we saw two people , one in black and one in orange. The orange one spoke first ” I am the star of the show- Mr Tophat ”

Unfortunately Mr Tophat was a name I never forgot….

When he stepped out on stage his smile to everyone sent a chill down my spine . The lights then went out and when they went back on Mr Tophat was beside me. We left straight away.

It the morning I asked Gavin if he remembered the carnival last night .

” What carnival? ” he said …..



Week 7 The Dare by Dylan

My mouth dropped open and I shook nervously . My friends and I were playing truth or dare when Laura and I were dared t go into the woods.

We said “Ok ” nervously and walked in.

We were talking and laughing so much we realised we were lost. Then we heard a nearby growl that sent a chill down our spines.

I could only see its gleaming daggerlike teeth and the deadly dripping drool foaming at its mouth. I turned to Laura.

” Keep an eye on it,” I said .

” But where did it go?” she shouted.

All I could do was scream when I saw it pounce …


Week 6 The Chase by Dylan

I screamed, I tried not to but I couldn’t help myself.

I was walking downtown and I saw a group of animal like people crawling around in an alley.

They saw ( and possibly heard me ) and started crawling towards me at an amazing speed.

I dashed to the nearby park and hid behind the slide until I felt something breathing on my neck…

I threw my elbow back and heard a spine chilling screech.

I picked up a rock and threw it .

It was heavier than I expected but I managed it .

I was then cornered and they pounced.

Week 5 The Statue by Dylan

” Did that statue just move” ? I asked my mom.

We were in the vicinity of Missouri when we came to a roundabout and there was a statue of a weird creature that I thought moved.

“No don’t be silly ” said my mom.

The rest of my trip in the beautiful Missouri was great although I thought I kept seeing the statue.

When I got home I decided to look up the statue

It said the statue just appeared there one night.

I then heard pounding on my window and saw the statue there.



Week 4 The House by Dylan

My heart was pounding, sweat was running down my face. I was terrified. I was after sneaking into the old abandoned house with my friend Derek and the door shut behind us.

We were in total darkness until I turned on the torch on my phone. What we saw was horrifying, there was a man in a clown costume!

We kicked the door open and ran. We hopped into my car but when it just wouldn’t take off I got out and realised the tyres were slashed…

Then someone tapped me on the shoulder but it was not Derek…

Week 3 The shortcut by Dylan

Cycling on my yellow bicycle I was terrified. I was after taking the shortcut home that my mom warned me not to and now I was being chased by thugs.

I was desperate to get away. My heart was pounding like a rabbit being chased by a fox. One of them caught me and threw me off my bike. He greedily snatched my money and pummelled me with his fists.

Rolling on the ground in agony I kicked him, grabbed my bike and cycled for my life. But when I got home somehow 5 of them were waiting for me…

Week 2 The Bomb by Dylan

The robber put the bomb down in the middle of the street and ran . There was 10 minutes before it would blow up.

One of the police called the bomb squad to defuse it. The leader of the squad said it could blow up the whole city. ..They were depending on me.

I opened up the bomb and saw a red cable, a blue cable and a green cable.nI fumbled with the wires and accidently cut the green one…

Then everything stopped and … it didn’t explode.

I saved the lives of millions.

Week 1 The Robbery by Dylan

I was after losing my job and I needed money for my son Timmy. I made some new friends whom I later found out were ghastly people. I was out with them one night when Bob [ my friend ] asked me to be a getaway driver.

I thought he was joking so I said ” ya ” sarcastically. He said “ok meet me here tomorrow night .”

When I realised he was for real and said “no”. He said, ” ok then I’ll hurt Timmy “.

I had to do it so I did and he gave me $100000.

Then I saw police lights coming my way…….

My strange day at the zoo by Dylan

The day started off great. We were told we were going to the zoo and then going to KFC. On the way to the zoo, I ate an avocado and watched a movie on my phone.

At the zoo there were wooly mammoth bones. There was an elephant and beside it, a tank with a purple seahorse

Then it went downhill fast. I got to hold a lizard and it bit me. We had to go because my hand was bleeding.

The good news was that we were still going to KFC. We went to the drive-thru and got the boneless meal.
