Week 21 Slower Than Snails By Jack

In the 90th century, a wood carver named Matthew carved ninjas out of wood. But when he was carving his first ninja a rock hit him in the back of his head.

The rock was green and shiny and he decided that for every sculpture he would use a small piece of the rock for their eyes.

When he was finished all of the freshly carved sculptures he realised that he still had a big piece of the rock left.  That night he thought the rock actually moved but …Oh No! it was the sculptures…

Week 20 The Train Crash By Jack

“Andy  -get to your seat!”

We were on our way to Dublin to see Kanturk vs Ballyragget and we were moving very fast when our carriage derailed. My mom had already fainted at the site of the devastation – my father was the same. But only I stayed alert – wide-eyed.

When the carriage stopped tumbling around and around I was surprised I was still breathing.  Blood was trickling into my eye and my shoulder had surely been popped out of place.

But I knew I had to get some help quickly before it was too late…

On the 12 of September, after the twin towers had fallen, the locals decided to put up three statues  -one a dad, two a mother and three. their child after they died a tragic death.

Week 16 Quasi By Jack

One day a mad aggressive ghastly scientist named Quasi wanted to do an idiotic thing that no other scientist had done before. So he went home and had some dangerous chemicals with him.

He made a mixture that was toxic and hazardous and poured it on nearly every limb on his body. Then the limbs dropped off and regenerated nearly instantly and the ones that dropped off came to life.

But……the right hand grew to the size of a man and had an abominable mind of its own…

Week 15 SCHOOL SUCKS By Jack

In the beginning, I was a happy child but then  I went to a miserable school in Cork . I became a lonely, dreary, ghastly child.

One day when my friend Tom and I were walking to school minding our own business the school bully Roger came over.

“Oi what do you think you’re doing on my path to school?”

“Sorry Roger,” we both said at the same time.

And then he nearly killed Tom by pushing him onto the road and he threw my plastic bag in the River Lee.

And now you know how miserable my life is.

Week 14 Monkey Madness By Jack

AHHHHHHHH!!! dumb boss –  the only reason I missed a day at the office is because I was ill.

I loathe my new boss. I sigh to my pet monkey. He’s a pompous fool. I have to go through 1,000,000 files to find the virus in the system. And that was all to be done yesterday!

I went to bed last night at 7:00 pm (because I needed energy) with ONLY 1ooo files left to go through.

There was pandemonium in my house the following morning. ” Look’s like Jim’s been up to skullduggery ( Jim is my pet monkey)”

There were at least 20 monkeys in my house that morning but when I saw my laptop. I turned red in the face and started to chuckle.


Week 13 Jungle Jam By Jack

My Dad and I were in our jeep going around the Jungle. We were ravenous as we hadn’t eaten in two days because we had got separated from the group and jeep one had the food in the back. So we were also causing a lot pandemonium in the jungle.

In the middle of nowhere well in the jungle, our jeep broke down. My dad was cantankerous. The only thing we had in the back of our jeep were ropes. Dad decided we would just walk. But when we got out of the actual jungle there was a tiger blocking our escape – the only way home.

“Aw man!” I said.

Week 12 Christmas Eve By Jack

I was on my Christmas holidays in England and my brother and I were messing while eating a sandwich.

Then my dad gave us a sharp look as if to say be good or you won’t get any presents from Santa.

The following day my brother and I got our things and hurried to the airport. But as we were driving, the battery in the car went dead. So we pushed the car to the petrol station and got the white  Audi filled with petrol. As we were all so energetic we got to the petrol station in five minutes.

Then we just drove to the airport and flew back to Ireland.

Week 11 A Day NOT To Remember By Jack

I was on my way to school on a Friday when I saw a building. I wanted to investigate it but a part of me was telling me not to trespass.

So after school at ten to three, I decided to snoop around the building. I looked in a window and saw a wizard putting a spell on a boy. But then the wizard saw me -oh no! I gasped and started to run.

Running.  Bamboozled. “Oh what a buffoon I was to have trespassed a private property” I said to myself.

Then my friend Bob saw me, threw his cloak on and yelled at the top of his voice – DUCK! He jumped in front of me just as the wizard tried to turn me to stone but sadly got him instead.

Week 7 A Break in by Jack

It was Halloween night and we were just home from trick or treating. I felt tired so I went to bed. Around half one in the morning I  heard a gunshot ring out.

I felt scared and went down the stairs. As I opened the living room door I saw that everyone was dead on the couch. I was going to cry but then there was another shot and the echo of a scream from a child.

I sprinted back up the stairs. I got back into bed and closed my eyes. There was the creak of the door opening and as the door slammed I knew I was in for it. At this point my eyes were glued shut and then I heard a soft whisper behind my ear…

Week 5 Something that spins By Jack

True story.

Well I was in Tramore with my family on holidays when my mom showed me a very unusual irregular object. It was rainbow coloured and she said it was for me. I picked it up and it wobbled. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh I screamed. I’d say the whole hotel heard me. Quieten down said my dad roaring. Then my mom said why don’t you? Then I hit it and it spun. I love it I said. My parents smiled. They said it was from my Uncle Stephan who died about a week before. It was supposed to be for my birthday but they said they couldn’t resist it. I took it wherever I went for the rest of the summer and it definitely my most treasured item.

Week 4 A dream By Jack

Three decades after 2017 and scientists have found a way to get people to mars -it’s amazing if I do say so myself. I was just after landing on Mars
from a rocket in America.

First I saw a dog and the dog was wearing glasses. A few seconds after I realised that the dog was half human. I asked a scientist what had happened. He said that the conditions of Mars have made humans smaller and half dogs with glasses. Then I fainted.

It was just too much to take in. Suddenly I woke up… it was just a dream.

Week 2 Taking over the world By Jack

Hello, my name is Appollo star. I am an alien. I am from the planet Zukuruko in a far away Galaxy. My family and I were on holidays in the Milky Way when a missile from Earth hit our jet and we landed on the planet Mars. I survived but my family didn’t.

I was mad. I made a disease that I would spill onto the ground on Earth. I was going to kill everyone and it was all going perfectly until a kid knocked over the container. This was a catastrophe. It wasn’t poured on the right place on Earth -it was going to destroy the universe.
