Week 10 Poppy By Joe

Sadly tragedy had struck , my Grandfather is sick . My mother spends most of her time making sure he is okay . She is often glum and the reason she always stays by his side  is so she can give him good food and prolong his life.

One time when my grandfather and I were alone he asked me to get him a red poppy . I thought that it was a bit peculiar that he wanted a poppy but I still got him the poppy . He told me that he was going to keep it by his bed side so that when he died we would always remember him .

Week 9 Hallucinating By Joe

How did I get myself into this one? I was being coerced and there was no way out. I finally gave in to take a 40 kilos crate 80 miles as I was being bombarded with threats. Since the commander loathed me so much there was no surprise to anyone when he told me I had to do it .

Ravenously I walked through the hot orange sandy desert. I was so thirsty that I was beginning to see mirages and I was hallucinating. After a few hours, I saw a small group of different coloured men. The orange one spoke first.  “Do you want some water?”  Before I knew it, it was too late . . .

Week 7 The Worst Day By Joe

Sadly, today was the worst day ever. It started off when there was no more cereal so I had to go to school ravenous. When I got to school I asked my teacher could I have a little bit of my lunch. Unlucky for me she was extra cantankerous and wouldn’t let me eat my lunch until break time.

When I got home and went into the living room my mom started to lambast me. She told me that I had taken her diamond ring . I started to deny saying that I didn’t do anything,” but where did it go ” she shouted . . .

Week 6 The Prank By Joe

Johnny and I were walking around town, we were up to our usual shenanigans. He realised that it was April Fool’s day. He grinned at me and let out a chuckle. I knew that it was a bad omen but I tried to not let it get to me.

I was right, when I got to his house I asked for a glass of water. When he came out with the “water” I took a sip and he started laughing. It was only then that I realised that he gave me vinegar.

I found a plan to get him back. I got a big bowl of water but it was heavier than I expected. When he saw me with the bowl in the air he tipped it over and it went the wrong way.

Week 5 The Giant By Joe

Rapidly I ran through the forest, the bullies were right behind me. I ran as fast as my legs could take me. When I got to the creek I stopped. ” It’ll be alright,” I thought to myself as I took a deep breath and got my energy back.

“He’s over here,” I heard one of them say. I quickly ran behind a tree and waited for them to pass. I ran to the park and saw a new statue, I went over and touched it on the foot only to realise that it wasn’t a statue  . . .

Week 4 The Plane By Joe

I walked outside and saw large dark clouds approaching but they weren’t clouds –  it was actually a U.F.O.  cannon and there were 8 beams of light all joined together like a death ray.

We have been getting reports of a laser coming to destroy Earth and it was going to happen in 2 days. Everybody was scared and most people were already gone. We were trying to get a flight.

The time came and we rushed to the plane. On the plane we were waiting for the flight to start but when it just wouldn’t take off I was getting nervous. We were running out of time . . .

Week 3 The Race By Joe

The pressure was devouring me. My teammates were wishing me good luck. I had to do well. I knew my team needed a prize and I was the only one holding them back from getting it. My brother greedily kept all the gels for himself. I got my bicycle  and we cycled out on to the road for a warm-up

Our coach told us that the race would start in five minutes and that we should get ready. After the wait, I cycled over to the start line. I was desperate for a good place. The yellow sun was burning my neck and I was ready for the race.

Week 2 Time By Joe

” Leave me alone ” I screamed as the bullies pushed me against the wall. Henry got his fist and I saw it coming at my face. His fist was about two inches from my face but then everything stopped and I was so confused and got down and ran .

As I ran through town I noticed that nothing was moving and I was beginning to think that I was lost in time . I ran home and I went on the computer but it wouldn’t load . I was bamboozled and began to feel hopeless.

Would I ever be back to normal again?

Week 1 The Bank Heist By Joe

The plan was finally ready – it all came down to luck. Kyle and Jamal were ready and everything was falling into place. The bank was closed and when they heard the last employee leaving they knew that it was all going to be perfect.

They quietly dashed along the narrow hallway and when they got to the vault Kyle slid the card through the card slot. The door opened and they got as much money as the bags could hold. They dashed through the hallway and suddenly saw the janitor cleaning the floors. The janitor got one good look at them at called the police.

To this day the janitor and the bank manager both have a statue outside the bank .

The Best Day Ever By Joe

Finally, school is over and I’m so excited to go to the zoo. I asked mum if my best friend Greg could come and she said he could. When we got to the zoo the first thing that we wanted to do was to go to the sea animal section. I love seahorses and when we saw them we were in love. I learned loads of new things for example – people would kill an elephant for their bones and tusks.

For lunch I had avocado on toast with a side of purple grapes. My day got even better when mum agreed to let Greg stay for a sleepover. We both agreed that it was one of the best days ever.
