Week 23 Typical Larry By Matthew D

I’m Larry the Leprechaun and I love gold coins. “Yipe,” I cried as I saw a rainbow at the bottom of the valley. And everyone knows at the end of the rainbow there’s a pot of gold. I just have to make sure that my malicious Leprechaun friends won’t beat me to it.

Within five minutes I was where the gold was. I  looked in admiration at the fine specimen of gold coins. I got my red ladder climbed up and grabbed the pot out of the tree. As I was walking on the pavement I saw a little fish in the water and  I peered in to have a better look.

“Oh no”I cried as I dropped all the gold coins into the murky pond.

Week 23 A Terrible Day in Irish History By Danny

On the 10th of April 1912 the Titanic was just about to set sail. Everyone was waiting for the red rope ladder to come down so that the people could get on.  Poor people were counting their coins to see if they had enough to get on. Other people were standing on the pavement waving at their family saying goodbye.

Four days later news came in and it wasn’t good. The Titanic was just after sinking. Everyone with family on the ship felt a bit queasy and were squirming with sadness yet hopeful they might have survived.

A terrible day in Irish History.

Week 19 The washed up eggs by:Tadhg

Tom marvelled at the amazing eggs that washed up on the fringe of the big beach. The eggs were starting to crack and Tom started to get worried if the mother didn’t get back soon the babies would die.
He had to act fast because it was getting dark and his light was flickering. He lifted up the eggs and they were a lot heavier than he thought. He ran as fast as he could to get home before the sun went and it became pitch black.
The eggs hatched they were chicken eggs…

Week 19 Black belly by Mathew og

It was a Saturday night and my friends and I were going on an adventure. I brought a flashlight and some cereal bars with me.

We set off for the fringe of town where Black Belly the saltwater crocodile lived. They say she was the deadliest croc out there. This adventure was fraught with danger.

As we made our way to the river my friend Bob had a sense of foreboding. When we arrived I turned on my flashlight and there seemed to be some eggs washed up on the shore. In the blink of an eye, one started cracking.

Just then my flashlight started flickering and then it turned off…and all you could hear was the growl of a saltwater croc…

 

Week 18 My Holiday In Sydney By Danny

In 2017 my family and I went to Sydney on our holidays for two whole weeks. When we arrived in Sydney we went to our hotel, booked in and went straight to sleep as the journey had taken us an astonishing 23 hours.

One week later we had visited Sydney Opera House, Sydney F.C. home ground where they play, the beach and of course the pool in the hotel every day.

On the day we were going home we decided to go and see the twelve statues across from Sydney Opera House. When I went to take a picture of one … he put his hand on my shoulder.

AHHHHHHHHHH

Week 18 : A terrifying nightmare By Oisin

I was going to Sydney when I saw a big jelly man. I wanted to take a picture and when I did one of them grabbed me and five of them took me to a cave. They started making a stew and then I heard these exact words …” time for the final ingredient” –   Time froze.  What if I was the final ingredient?

Then I looked at the positive side. I always wondered what it would be like to be dead … but time froze for me again and in a blink, I was in bed.  It must have been a dream ( Thank God!)

Week 17: I’m Lucky By Marc

“Let me go!”

I was shouting for my life. I was getting kidnapped by a group of abominable men. They put me in a small car. The situation was fraught with danger. One man was being really ghastly and aggressive. We stopped at a dank place in the middle of nowhere. I did shenanigans to get away from these mean men. Suddenly I hit the man who was holding me, in the stomach. They were looking for me everywhere.

“But how could she just disappear?” the leader shouted in a malicious voice. Then I called the cops to rescue me.

Week 17 The day my teacher went missing By:Tadhg

Chomp!
“Alli for the last time, the teachers are not for breakfast. If you keep on eating teachers you wont be able to come to school with me.”
Okay -now we have to find out if the principal found out about it. If she does she is going to ban alligators from this school forever! “
Suddenly on the intercom …”Alli and Tadhg please come to my office immediately!”
“Tadhg did your alligator eat the teacher?”
“No Miss – he would never do something so horribly rude.”
“But how could she just disappear then?”
“She might have just hated her job and decided to leave .”
“Tadhg,  I blame you for what happened and I’m going to write a…”
Chomp!
“Good boy Alli -lets go home.”

Week 16 Circus By Matthew D

I am a clown and tonight I’m performing a big show. The crowd was chuckling as I cycled around the arena on my pink bicycle. I jumped off the bike and took a bow.

Next, I swaggered over to get my hat and I put it on my head. When I took it off it was empty-  well I thought it was but bubbles then started pouring out of it.

It was all going wrong. I scurried off as quickly as I could. After the show, the boss called me into his office and fired me. I left the room and slammed the door in anger.

Week 16: The PJ Day By Seán

One night I was very tired so I went to bed early and I fell asleep straight away…When I woke up I was in school and I  was in my pink pjs that my nana made for me.

Then John the class bully said,” Do you have bubbles and a pink bicycle to go with that?

Everyone laughed at me at break.  I felt empty inside.  Then I heard the door open and John was there with a stick in his hand so I fired a chair at him and he hit me in the leg….

Week 15 The Prison Escape [FAIL] By Ciarán

John was thinking for months now -thinking of a way to escape this abominable prison. He was in his cell one fine day when it came to him.

First, he would bate the guards into his cell, steal their key card and then lock them up. After that, he would get a rope from the staff room where the guards ate. Then he started to climb and he was delighted – no alarms went off thankfully.

Suddenly a spotlight shone on him –  there was nowhere he could run to -he was surrounded and the light blinded him.

Week 15: Robbery Gone Wrong By Naglis

“I want to rob the bank” insisted Stephen’s chubby pompous impatient boss-Frank.

“Sure, I don’t really have a choice” Stephen replied.

It was half past ten and the two men were crouching uncomfortably in the bushes while being camouflaged. Their hearts were thumping rapidly as they shuffled inside the back door of the bank.

“The safe is this way” whispered Frank.

They scurried inside and put all they could, into their brown scruffy bags and darted back out again. Breathless, Stephen sat down beside the bonfire and the light blinded him.

“We have done it,” he thought…

Nee Naw Nee Naw.

“Sugar honey ice tea!” “Run!”

Week 12 Cork Schools Hurling Final Day By Danny

It was the day that my school, St. Colman’s Boy’s National School were in Pairc Úí Chaoimh for the Cork School’s Hurling Final Day. We had won every game so far in the competition. When we got onto the pitch there was a thick mist descending. A few minutes later the school we were playing, Scoil Mhuire Milford from Milford swaggered onto the pitch. One hour later the match had started and it was time to get my game face on.

With one minute to go to the Final whistle we were down 2 points but just then I had a shot which rattled the back of the net. Just after that, the referee blew his whistle and we won.

That evening we seemed to be on the television.

Week 12: Abominable Attempt By Naglis

Bored and tired my colleague-Jim and I were at home thinking about what we could get up to that day.

“I have an idea, we could get my fake toy gun because there’s no chance in the world that we would get a real one and go to the post office and demand money… can we please try?”Jim asked cantankerously.

“Sure why not?” I answered.

We put our black masks on and headed to the post office. Surprisingly it worked. We came home dancing in delight …until I turned the T.V on and we seemed to be on the television.

Moments later we heard banging outside the door

. “FBI open up!”

Week 11, Fable by Tim

A long time ago there was a mother who was trying to protect her baby from a werewolf. But she was bitten. So she ran as fast as she could with the baby to their house in the woods so the baby could stay with her father.

21 years later

Fable was all grown up and she and her father were on the way to the park. Suddenly they saw a bike somehow stuck in a tree. They continued walking and all of a sudden a werewolf jumped out and scared Fable and her dad. The werewolf looked at Fable and smiled. Fable’s dad looked at the wolf especially its eyes. He told Fable that the wolf’s eyes looked like her mothers.

The wolf went back to human form and it was Fable’s  Mom

Week 11 The Hungry Tree by Mathew O G

It was a boring old Sunday and I didn’t have anything to do. I spent hours upon end thinking of what to do.

Finally I had it …I text my friend anxiously. After a while of persuading him he finally agreed to go cycling in the haunted forest. 3 hours later we were zigzagging across each other’s path having the time of our lives.

Later on we were bragging about how fast we were. 5 minutes later we were zooming between the dense pine trees up the steep path. I gave it a mammoth effort…so much so that I hit a rock and CRUNCH!!!!!!!!!

Somehow my bike got stuck in the tree.

 

 

Week 10 A Day At The Zoo By Jack

It was an ordinary day at the zoo or so I thought when Boom! George the gorilla crashed through the yellow bricks they were going to use for his new cage.

He was running pretty fast  -faster than I have ever seen him run in his life after a teenage boy who had thrown a banana skin at him while he had been eating.

George chased him out of the zoo towards the boy’s mum’s car. The boy hopped into the car and shouted at his mum to drive. But he was too late George had the gripped onto the back bumper of the car and was stopping them from driving away. But luckily I got there just in time and stopped George from ripping them to shreds.

 

Week 9: I’M ALIVE! By Marc

Dear Diary,

I was so excited to go on the Titanic.                                                                            Even though I was in third class,  I was still super excited.                                   My family are  very poor -they only had 10 pounds from their life savings to go on the Titanic.                                                                                                                                  Suddenly there was a big crash on the Titanic.                                                                 From the ginourmous crash the trap door had somehow locked.                          I was crying from fright as  I was really scared.                                                   My mom and dad were giving me hugs to calm me down.                                        After a while I found another door.                                                                                       I wondered what was behind the door.                                                                               My hands were shaking but I pushed the door open.                                                   Our lives were saved  – there in front of us were the  life boats.

 

Week 8 The Big Hide and Seek Game By Danny

It was the day that we were playing the big hide and seek game. Every year my neighbours and my family used to gather in one of the neighbours’ houses and talk for hours and hours but the children would get bored so we would go out and play a big game of hide and seek.

This year the gathering was on in my house so I got to choose who was on. I chose Billy even though he was on the year before.

He said “Why am I on?”

So I said ” because I said so.”

After that we carried on and had a great time.

 

Week 7 The War By Szymon

“Fire!” roared General Ladybird.

The ladybirds effortlessly shot as a much as they could but it didn’t do much good. The lego army hid in the trenches until the ladybirds stopped shooting. The lego army hastily threw grenades and killed most of the ladybirds but in the process got their hands shot off.

The last ladybird which was General Ladybird got shot and died. The general of the lego army strutted over and was standing in the middle of a field covered in dead ladybirds. Before he knew it the ladybirds started to explode…

Week 6 Bath Arena by Matthew D

BANG

I am a fighter and I’m fighting in the Bath arena in a UFC fight. I was getting annoyed by my opponent’s support and for no reason, I danced across the ring.  My opponent was trying to hit me but he couldn’t.

That silenced the crowd as nothing was happening.

I zigzagged my way around the octagon. He was getting tired and the crowd were starting to get wrestles. After a while, a cheeky spectator threw an orange into the ring. I clumsily slipped and my opponents left was heading straight for my face…

Week 6 B.A.T.H. By Danny

It was the 12th of May 2018 and I was getting ready for my first league match this season. I played for Boys Academy in Tottenham Hotspur but we called it B.A.T.H. for short. Everyone use to say that I was a fighter because I didn’t start a match. But I stayed with the academy because I loved it.

A week before the game I had been working non-stop to make the team and it worked because I was named up front. The game had started and midway through the game I fell over my orange laces clumsily but I got up and scored the only goal of the game and then I danced off in celebration.

Week 5 The Ring By Szymon

Crash!
I broke another window while robbing a jewellery store. My companions and I rushed in. We saw many cheap rings and necklaces but we were going big this time. We wanted to rob the jewellery that was worth millions. We got through the security with ease.
Suddenly I spotted a ring. It reminded me of a time when I proposed.
“What are you looking at?” My friend asked. ” Nothing” I replied.
We were so close but an alarm went off. Before we knew it the police were already there. We tried to escape quickly but we got caught and …they all blamed it on me.

Week 5 : The White Dog : by Maciej

“Come on, White let’s play in the snow,” I said to my dog.

White loved snow . She liked to hide in it, jump in it and run in it. Suddenly White fell into the frozen pond, the ice broke and White fell in.

5 Years later .

It was winter and my brother and I were playing in the snow. Suddenly a white dog passed by. It reminded me of a time when White was alive.

Week 4 The Gathering by Mathew O G

Running through the dense pine trees I was gasping for breath uncontrollably. I would not leave until I had it.

“What are you even looking for”? groaned Jim.

“YOU KNOW WELL WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR, YOU TWAT!” I answered back furiously.

Finally, we found it –  the last animal statue.  Finally, we could go back in time. We headed back to Ireland to put all the statues together. When we got there Jim was exhilarated. We eventually reached the centre of the forest and placed the three statues facing each other… Then the ground began to shake and a purple portal opened in the ground…

Week 4: Abominable Animals By Naglis

Running through the forest while gasping for breath and my heart beating like a drum,  I can feel it thumping rapidly in my chest. Sweat trickling down my forehead and onto my nose and cheeks.  I wipe it off with a torn sleeve. I quickly glance around trying to get my bearings. Four irate bloodhounds trying to chase me down in the distance. I stop for a second. My lungs are burning but I keep going. I’m heading to the river to try and lose my scent.

Suddenly three animal statues with green eyes stop and glare at me viciously…

Week 3: Why Backwards By Marc

Running like a bullet from a gun, my lungs were burning but I kept running. An abominable man was chasing me. I went left and he went right. I had time but not much time. I had an idea to run to the exit. Eventually, I got my breath back and I felt as fit as a hare. So I sprinted and sprinted as fast as I could.

Suddenly it went dark and it felt like my eyes were closed.

“Hey get over here” shouted a deep voice.

I was nearly at the escalator. I jumped on the escalator but It seemed to be going backwards….Sadly …I never got out of jail. 

 

Week 3 The New Roller coaster By Danny

It was the day that we were going to the new Theme Park called Fun Land. I was very excited as a new Rollercoaster was opening and I wanted to be the first on it.

Standing in the line my teeth were clattering together uncontrollably when suddenly a thick mist descended. I was a small bit nervous but the boy behind me was irate.

I was the first person in the line and when the Mayor cut the ribbon I was the first person on it.

When it started it was so much fun… but it seemed to be going backwards…
