Week 34, The Smartest Prank, by Mikolaj

I was sick and I didn’t go to school. My brother didn’t go either because he was sick too. He decided to prank me because I had a blocked nose. He already had eaten his breakfast before I got up. My favourite drink was water so he poured vinegar into my glass. I wouldn’t know because I had a blocked nose so I couldn’t smell or taste it either. The only reason why I drank it is that it looked just like a glass of water. He was laughing all the time and I was asking him what’s wrong and then he eventually told me…

Week 29, by Mikolaj

I was at my dad’s house and I told him to take me to the Santa post office because I wanted a pet giraffe for Christmas. He said he would when he finished preparing Christmas dinner. I was bored as I couldn’t wait until we could go. He was three quarters done and his fingers were greasy. He was washing them so I just got brown bread, cheese and put it into a microwave until it will be melted. We finally went there and I put my letter in the post box and we went back home and dad finished the Christmas dinner.

Week 28, Burned Forest, by Mikolaj

“Dad”, I shouted “I caught a big fish from the ocean beside the forest. “

I was happy so we went to a shop to buy me a sandwich. We went home and I was very happy so I told my dad to take me back the next day. We went back and there was no forest.  It was all burned down so my Dad and I were very confused. So we just were fishing and I caught another one and it was way bigger than the one the previous day. My dad was very proud of me and now takes me fishing every time he goes.

Week 26, Not My Day, by Mikolaj

I was at my friend’s house and he got the game I wanted all my life. It was his birthday too and he got loads of money from his family. He even had his Confirmation the next day. That game was for one player. There were so many people at his house so it would take a long time to take turns.

Sadly I was in the bathroom when they were picking who should be first. I came back and I asked ” am I first?”  They answered that I was last and I was very mad. One game is thirty minutes long so it would take a long time for my turn. It was only the second game and my Mom said that we were going home. I was so cross that I could have exploded.

Week 24, by Mikolaj

I was a homeless kid and I really needed a pen because I needed to write my plan for the following day because my brain isn’t that good for remembering stuff. I was not finding a pen yet and it was late.

Suddenly I saw a man dropping one by accident. I didn’t want to ask him if he needed it because I needed it more. I checked if there was ink inside the pen and there wasn’t, it was empty. What a surprise. I was mad and I had anger issues…

Week 23, Wishing Well, by Mikolaj

I was walking to school on the pavement and I saw a red ladder with a sign saying -Short cut to the top of the school. I was lazy so I climbed to the top of the school. I saw nobody inside the school. I decided to go home but went a longer way so my parents would think I was in school. As I was walking I saw a wishing well. I heard somewhere that if you throw coins inside and wish about something it would happen so I tried it out.

I did it and all I saw was them sinking.

Week 22, Too Strong a Smell, by Mikolaj

I was really bored so I went upstairs and got my phone and played piano tiles 2. My Mom was bored too but she had things to do. She cleaned the sink with the vinegar. I was starting to get hungry and I was in the shop yesterday with my friends and I bought sweets that I left in the fridge. I went down as fast as I could. As soon I was entering the kitchen I smelled the disgusting smell of vinegar. The vinegar was too sharp. I ran back upstairs and got my book to settle me down. My Mom came up to check what did I do and she was confused. I told her to never ever use vinegar again when I am home. She agreed and I lived a happy life.

Week 21, My friend’s Birthday, by Mikolaj

It was my friend’s birthday and I decided to surprise him by sneaking some more money into his money box. I was really happy because my Dad let me sleep at his house. There was a lot of pandemonium there.

The next morning there was a group of bullies behind us. They took my friends teddy that he got for Valentines Day from his Mom. He was really sad so he asked them to please give it back but they just threw it on the ground. One of the group said to give it back because it was a Valentines Day present from his Mom. They finally gave it back and he was happy again. 

Week 20, My Communion, by Mikolaj

It was my communion day and everybody was excited. My family from Poland flew over to Ireland to meet me and watch me receiving my first holy communion. 5th & 6th class were the choir and they were playing the tin whistle.

When it was time to receive the communion the choir was playing a song. Sadly it was completely out of tune. When it was over my Mom asked me did I enjoy listening to them playing the tin whistle. I obviously said no. We went to a bar after and enjoyed the rest of our day of listening and eating.

Week 19, Easter Holidays, by Mikolaj

It was Easter so my Dad and I were making Easter eggs. My grandparents hadn’t come yet so my Dad decided to take me to the barber. We needed to go because I had a long fringe.

My hair was grey but the barber dyed it black for some reason. It took about two hours so it was pitch dark outside when I was ready. I got my flashlight out of my pocket and it started flickering. As we were walking home we saw eggs cracked on the floor. Somehow we got home and my Grandparents were there. We spent Easter together and everyone was delighted that I  no longer had my fringe in my eyes.

Week 17, My Sister is Lost, by Mikolaj

My Dad needed a kettle because he wanted to drink tea. He never ever drank tea. He was watching people on YouTube and they were drinking tea in nearly every video. So we decided to go to the car and get a kettle.

We got to Lidl and finally we found a kettle. It was 8:54 and the shop was closing at 9:00. My Dad bellowed , “Everybody run to the cashier before they lock us inside. “

When we got to the car I wondered where is my sister.

I told my Dad and he thought how could she just disappear?

Week 16, The Worst Day Ever, By Mikolaj

It was the day that I was going to get my new pink bicycle. My sister was getting a water gun too. There was no time to waste so we hopped into the car and drove to the bicycle shop. As soon as we got to the bicycle shop Dad moaned that we had to go to the fish shop next door (not the fish you eat). I bought myself a bike and had to go to the fish shop. When my Dad and I were picking the fish my sister was buying her gun. My Dad said that he would name the fish Bubbles. Everybody bought what they wanted. We got home and when I closed my eyes for five seconds my sister fired the water gun at me and I was soaked.

Thank God it was empty after fifteen seconds.

Week 15 Lazy Cousin, By Mikolaj

It was the first day of school and my cousin didn’t want to wake up. He was used to waking up at 10:15 am but this day he had to wake up at 5 am. It was 5:15 am and he still wasn’t awake.

I ran into his room and turned the light on. Eventually,  bamboozled he woke up but he told me that the light blinded him. He said to never do that again so I guess I won’t do it. Eventually, he got to school and he was ok. I still don’t know what was wrong with turning the light on if he was supposed to be going to school.

WK 13, The Rude People, By Mikolaj

I was playing my PlayStation and I ran into three random people. They told me their names, where they were from and how old they were. I asked them could they add me so we could play more often. They said they would but they were exhausted. When we died in the game, I took my phone out of my pocket because I wanted to check what time it was in their country. It was surprisingly only 11:oo am so I was confused. I was getting sad because they just maybe didn’t want to play with me. I rang them and asked them why didn’t they want to play with me. They said it was because I was too young. I threw my headphones off and went to bed.

I will never forget these rude people.

WK 12 The Great Talk, By Mikolaj

I was in America in Washington DC. I really liked Donald Trump so I decided to go to see him.My friend came with me. It was 13:00, and I rang on his doorbell. He was making a video to post on the television. I asked him how was his day and how did he feel being a president. He told me all the good stuff about his life.

Later when we got home we seemed to be on the television. I watched the whole talking part. I was very happy I was on the television.

WK 11 Foolish Brother, By Mikolaj

“Ha Ha Ha – I’m winning,” exclaimed my brother.

He never beats me in cycling – I always win. So I decided to take him to the woods and race him.

I counted ” On your marks, Get set, Go.”

I started two seconds after Go and he started on – on your marks. The race began, he was like two feet in front of me so it wasn’t too bad. I moved my pedals quicker to make him angry. In a flash of lightning, I was in front of him. In shock and dismay he gave up so he lost. I turned my head to him and mocked him as to why he was so slow. I suddenly drove into a tree and broke my hand and my poor leg. My brother had nothing to say so he just rang the ambulance. I was in the hospital for two months, healing.

The Magical House, By Mikolaj

“Please get me out of here”, my brother Alex bellowed.

“I will don’t you worry, we just have to wait until it’s night time.”

I drove back home and went to sleep. I set my alarm on 1:25 A.M. Suddenly my alarm rang: it is time to rescue your brother from jail. I changed my clothes, ate an apple, brushed my teeth and in shock and dismay drove over to him. He was sleeping so I went to the office and stole the keys.

Sadly there was a very smart camera that when the wrong person will open the door he and the person near him will get teleported to an old, stinky house. Surprisingly Alex woke up and asked where did I take him? I told him everything but he wouldn’t believe me. OBVIOUSLY.

We walked out to discover where we were. Five meters away from the house was a cliff. We jogged the other way because we didn’t want to take a risk of falling. We looked around for some people or any food. There was nothing so we walked back to the house. We heard someone or something say open me, open me, and we went over to it and opened it and went inside.

“It’s a rift,” I yelled.

We were really scared to walk into it. Suddenly we walked into it and it teleported us back home. We walked into our parents’ room to see them but they were asleep. I was confused because at the magical house it was the evening. As I looked out the window it was dark. I checked my time but it was only 6:19 P.M and my Mom goes to work at 7:00 A.M.

At least I was happy because my brother and myself are finally safe home. I hope my brother learns his lesson and will not be bold again.

Week 10: The scary day, By Mikolaj

It was my cousin’s birthday and he took me to the zoo in Dublin. We got our tickets and went in. We were beside the gorillas and I don’t know why but they were yellow.

As they got mad and growled at us we started running as fast as we could to the next animal’s enclosure. It was pretty cold so we decided to explore the animals quickly.

We went to the lions after but they were sleeping. We stared at the lions and suddenly walked into the giant brick wall. Bricks fell everywhere. I had a headache after that so my cousin drove me home and bought me pizza.

Week 9: The Embarrassing Day, By Mikolaj

My parents went to the cinema with their friends and left my sister and myself home alone. I was playing the PlayStation with my friends. We were playing Fortnite. My friend said he’ll be back in a second and 1 minute later I heard somebody ring my doorbell.

My parents still didn’t come back and my sister was sleeping but my cat wasn’t. I wondered what was behind my door. Before my Mom left she told me not to open the door no matter what so I didn’t.

They suddenly came back and told me it was my friend giving back my controller.

Why I love wearing the school jersey

Hello my name is Mikolaj, I am in 5th class Saint Colman’s Boys National School, County Cork. Today I’m going to tell you why I love wearing the school jersey.

So if you are on a school tour on a farm and you get lost then your teacher might see you because you have the same jersey as everybody else in the class. Also if it is the final of soccer, rugby, hurling, football or anything else and you are on the biggest stadium in your country you are representing your team because you have the same jersey as all your friends who are playing you would feel happy won’t you?

Let’s say you and your two friends were the best writers and readers in the school and you were picked as the best one so you went with your family and friend to a big hall and you are reading your story then you would feel confident representing your school showing what the teachers taught you.

OK so that’s what I wanted to discus today.


Week 7: My New Lego By Mikolaj

I was in Cork with my family and Polish school just ended. Luckily I was going with my family to Smyths. I found the lego that I wanted and my Dad bought it for me just for $25.0o. I was happy with my purchase so we drove back home and I started to play with it. It came with a lot of balls.

I put the balls on my rock that I have in my garden and put the guy in the middle. When everything was setup I started to play. My old sister came out for some fresh air and she looked at what I was doing and she started laughing.

I was angry at her so I took her friend into her room and showed her what my sister keeps there….She was laughing and my sister got mad at me.

Week 6: The Fighter By Mikolaj

My friend was playing a video game. He was not really good at it anyway so he decided to dance through the game. He danced with his teammates.

Suddenly a fighter from the opposite team ran up to him and shot him. My friend ran off the dancing floor zigzagging into the bath to hide. Later he clumsily walked out of the bathroom and he saw the fighter –   he finally killed him.

My friend was disappointed with himself. He screamed quite loudly and his Mom got mad at him and grounded him for two weeks.

WK 5 The snowy Day, By Mikolaj

It was the 23rd of December and it started to snow. I am 17 years old now so I don’t really play in the snow at this time. It started to snow heavily and the ground was nearly filled up with snow.

It reminded me of a time when I was 5 and I was building a snowman with my Dad. I asked my family to go and look to see if the lake was filled up with ice. When we got there and I looked at it and it was completely covered up with ice.

We came back home and lit a fire and enjoyed the rest of our day!

Wk 4: “The prank” By Mikolaj

It was Hallowe’en night and I was walking around and collecting sweets. I was out for an hour already and I still didn’t finish collecting sweets. I was knocking on my best friend’s door now. I knocked and he opened, I asked “trick or treat?”  He answered trick and he did some weird trick and made us into concrete animals –  in half a second I thought in my head what a pompous person.

And now my life is going to be a nuisance. I never believed that my best friend could make me into an abominable concrete animal for Hallowe’en.  

Week 3 “My Birthday Present” By Mikolaj

It was my 22nd birthday and my parents bought me a brand new automatic car. I thanked them and I sat on my seat and looked around. On the gear stick, it said “R, P and D.” I thought that R stood for Race mode.

I turned on the car, put it on R and started to drive… But it seemed to be going backwards.

I drove into the wall and broke the whole back of the car. I was very sad. I ran home and asked my parents why didn’t they tell me what the letters meant. At least I was alive.

Week 2 By Mikolaj

When my teacher and I were walking to the shop she wanted to buy a chocolate bar. She needed 1 more cent! She was so angry she turned into a mauve alligator. I climbed the mountain hiding from her.

Suddenly I saw her climbing up the mountain. It was too tricky for her so I decided to take a rest. After a while she turned up 5 metres away from me. I ran to the zip line and went down so fast.

I thought I was safe then.  I ran home and I told everybody that story about me and my bamboozled teacher.

Week 1 Disaster, By Mikolaj

I was getting ready for school but I had to eat my breakfast first. I had porridge for breakfast. While I was eating I heard a monkey’s voice. I walked outside and there was a monkey in my garden trying to get on the tree.

I realised I had to be in school at this time. I quickly helped the monkey get on the tree. We were on the tree and the monkey showed me the fastest way to school. The monkey went so fast off the tree and caught a wire and it broke and the monkey fell into the ground and his hands stood out.

I walked school and I was late.

Week 35 The Wonderful Day By: Mikolaj

It was the day when my mom was in the Olympic run for the gold medal. The run was starting. 

On your marks, get set, GO!

…and they all ran. There were six runners and they had to run a mile. My Mom was second until she knew that the end-line was near so she sprinted to the finish and she won!

However, she couldn’t believe what she had done. She came home with the lovely gold medal. We all cheered for the rest of the day. Now we all know that my Mom is the best runner in the world.
