Week 13 The Tree! By Szymon

“Why”? I asked anxiously .
“We want to plant a tree, to be eco-friendly ” my friends answered.
My friends wanted to a plant a tree and it grew surprisingly quickly. They decided to climb it but I disagreed. It took them hours to climb up but when they reached the top they were amazed. It reminded them of the story Jack and the Beanstalk. There was a castle on a cloud and instead of a giant, there was a dragon.
The dragon found them and flew above their heads. They ran but they were exhausted. They were about to climb down but the dragon caught them…

Week 12 We Won By Szymon

“We won !” yelled my dad.
My dad just bought a lottery ticket and was checking after checking the numbers.
“How much?” exuded my brother excitedly.
” 10 million euro” my dad said calmly.
When we went to the shop to exchange our ticket into money my brother started swaggering in pompously. On the way back we saw a gr0up of poor people begging for money on the street. I decided to give each of them 100 thousand euro. My parents agreed. We didn’t realise that there was a news reporter behind us. We went home and watched the news and to our surprise we seemed to be on the television.

Kanturk Arts: The Not So Great Famine

Happily, the farmer strutted over to the potato crops. He knew he would have plenty to eat and he wouldn’t have to starve. He was so ravenous he was about to eat an uncooked potato because rodents infested his home. He got rid of them but they ate all his food. He wasn’t so opulent so he couldn’t buy a lot of food. He lived off of farming, fishing and selling extra fish and vegetables.
He was anxious after pulling out his crops. He grew weak and docile after finding his crops rotten. He knew straight away that it was a famine. He knew about it from Irish people that had visited him. A century ago it happened to Ireland and now it happened to him. He tried planting more crops but he had no more seed potatoes.
He sprinted over to his neighbours and asked them. Before they could answer he dashed over to their potatoes and pulled them out. As fast as he could he sprinted over to his house and grabbed all his belongings. He started making his way to the bay before everyone realised what had happened. He hopped into a boat and started making his  way over to Ireland. 


Week 9 The Door By Szymon

“Whatever happens- do not open this door!” roared the astronaut. I wondered what was behind the door?

” Picture this – you are stuck in a room with the most dangerous thing you can imagine,” yelled the astronauts. The astronaut’s voice was convincing but gentle. “I can’t wait to learn more about this place,” I said.

I just went onto my first space station but little did I know it was also my last one.

When everyone fell asleep I sneaked over to the door and opened it. I went in and suddenly something grabbed me by the ankles and roughly tripped me.

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 Why Me? By Szymon


A plate clumsily fell out of my hand. My parents were so mad at me they told me that I couldn’t go on the school tour. I really wanted to go because my class was going to Bath in England.

I already had my orange bag packed. I was so annoyed at my parents that I went upstairs. I tried to sneak out but they heard me so I danced to make them think that I was just dancing. It didn’t work  and I got grounded.

The next day I was watching my favourite fighter when I heard my parents shout to get ready as they changed their minds.

Week 5 The Ring By Szymon

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 4 The Three Tormentors by Szymon

Legend says that if all three statues are gathered  together on their altar they will wake up and torment everyone in sight.
Zap! Another man was zapped by the statue when he touched it. Only the worthy can pick them up and release all evil. Another year passes by before someone tries again but this time he is worthy. He collects the first one and puts it in place. The second one was put in by his ancestors. The third one was far away in an open field. He collected it and put it on the altar… Their eyes started to glow…

Week 3 The Hunter By Szymon

”Bye!” I shouted.
I was going to my favourite place to be where I want to be alone. It was a patch with lush green plants and wildlife. That was in the middle of a field that was next to my house.
When I was there it looked as beautiful  as always. I saw a rabbit but it seemed to be going backwards.
” It seemed as if he was running away from something” I whispered.
I went in to check and I was frightened at what I saw. It was a hunter that was shooting the animals. Then he pointed his gun at me. I ran away as fast as I could.

Week 2 National Pet Day By Szymon

Dear Diary,
Today was the funniest day ever. Since it is national pet day we were allowed to bring in our pets. I brought in my alligator. When the teacher saw him she turned mauve and backed off to the back of the classroom. When I told them his name was Ali and that he was only ten months old my friend interrupted me and asked could he hold him. I said that he could. After that it was tricky to get him back in his cage but soon after that, he climbed in himself.
I will not forget this day and the horrified look on my teacher’s face.

Week 1 The Failed Escape By Szymon

Silently Luke crawled over to the exit. He was ready to escape. He had everything prepared.
“I’m finally escaping out of this wretched prison!” he whispered.
He was already in the yard. Sneakily he threw up a rope that he snatched from a guard. Quickly he started to climb the wall. He wasn’t paying attention because it was too late when he realised they had put up a sharp and big barbed wire. He just scraped his hands lightly but his legs dug in deep… He bled out before the sun started to rise. They put up a statue to show that barbed wires are too dangerous so it is safer to use ropes.

Week 37 Dear Diary By Szymon

It had been raining all morning but when it brightened up I was very happy. This was because we were planning to go to the Aqua Dome. We went there and we had lots of fun.
I really liked the outside slide but I nearly drowned. After that, we went to a beach. I got sunburnt but it was worth it. I had a lot of fun on the beach and I built a giant sandcastle.
Later that day we went to subway and ate. When we arrived home we went to spar and ordered ice-cream. I loved this day and I will never forget it.

Week 36 The Murder By Szymon

I heard a gunshot followed by another one. I was very terrified. Finally I fell asleep.
When I woke up next morning everything was normal but things started to change very quickly. After I ate my breakfast,  brushed my teeth and dressed, I went outside. I was going to my friend’s house but I spotted a long shiny object. I went closer and saw that it was a gun. I ran home and called the police. They told me that they would come as quickly as possible.
When they arrived they told me what had happened and that someone got shot and the murderer hadn’t been found. The gun was knotted and someone got an inspiration from it and made a statue like the gun.

Week 35 Halucination By Szymon

“Good Night” said Gabriela.
She was going to bed after a frustrating and tiring day. She had three tests and tennis practice that lasted an hour. In the middle of the night she started to hallucinate and she went to the house next door.
No one was in the house because the owners went to a party. They forgot to close the door so she got in easily and accidently took a necklace that was worth thousands. The next day she saw the police and saw that she was holding a necklace. She realised that it was the neighbours however she couldn’t believe what she had done.

Week 34 Wonder World By Szymon

“Where am I” ? I whispered.
I was in a place where everything looked different. The water in the river was like lemonade and the fish were like gummies. I was hungry and thirsty so I ate the fish and drank the pink lemonade.
I crossed over a bridge that was over the river. It started raining but it was more like someone had sprinkled marshmallows over me. I hid under a huge daffodil.  I loved this place but I didn’t stay for a long time…
Suddenly I heard a bell ring and I woke up. It was all a dream. I was sad when I woke up.

Week 33 The Robot By Szymon

One night a little robot landed in a forest. He was sent by aliens to investigate the environment. The robot had abilities to see heat waves and transform into anything or any item.
The aliens had a control panel to steer the robot and they headed for a tree. The tree had a horse chestnut on it so the robot went there and transformed into a horse chestnut.
When it was Autumn and all the nuts were falling off the trees the horse chestnut was shaking. Suddenly it fell and hit the robot by accident. The robot fell and it was damaged. 

Week 32 The Treasure Map By Szymon

“What is this?” I asked myself.

One day I found a treasure map in my garden when I was digging holes to try to find dinosaur fossils. The one that I was really trying to find was an utahraptor.

It showed me a riddle that I figured out straight away. The answer to the riddle was the Big Ben. I flew there to find a clue for the second location. This one took me the longest of times but finally I figured it out. The answer was the Loch Ness lake.

I drove over there and found a clue but I didn’t understand the instructions. Eventually I figured it out and the answer was Stonehenge. I dug out the chest and slowly opened it…

William the Working Walrus is a young, affable, green and strong walrus. He lives in Igloo City. He loves building houses, helping people and swimming.

His best friends are Grudge the Bear and Larry the Limping Leopard. He hates the spying giraffes because he thinks they only show off with what they can do.

He hates the lord of Nulth because he thinks that the lord of Nulth is a menacing monster. He went to the jail, Conform five times but he always escaped. Because of this, they put in more defenses in Conform. He hates the whispering glade because the echo annoys him.

Week 28 The Amazing Robot By Szymon

“Yes!” shouted a scientist. “I have completed the robot.”

He turned it on and it started to pick up the litter that was in the room. Soon after it became a peacemaker and it helped solve all of the problems of the world. No one was homeless or poor. Everyone had clean water and food. There were no more wars and the earth wasn’t polluted.

When the scientist died his son had a plan to destroy the robot and make the earth the same as it was before. He crept up behind the robot and cut it in half. He buried the top part deep underground but left the legs above ground.

Week 27 The Storm By Szymon

One day a family was watching television when suddenly the programme changed onto the news. It said there was a tornado coming in one hour. When they looked out they saw pandemonium everywhere.

“We will not make it by car as there is too much traffic around,” said the mother.

They started running but they saw an old lady that fell over who could not get up so they helped her. They ran quickly but they saw people tripping and they also helped them. Then a  child fell and could not walk because he broke an ankle.

Although they ran quickly, they were not making enough progress…

Week 26 The Titanic By Szymon

“Hooray!” I shouted.

I was so happy when my parents told me we are going on the Titanic. When we arrived we saw a wealthy and pompous man who was showing off his shiny  yellow watch.

“That tiny and thin man that we saw – I think he was showing off his watch” he whispered. “I think so” I replied.

My friend was coming too but not only that… we were also in first class. We were happy until the Titanic started to sink. We went on a boat with our parents but we saw hopeless people drown.

We survived and lived in America but we still sadly remembered that day.

Week 25 : The Robbery by Szymon

AHH! roared Tom.
He got a fright when he could not find his cat. His cat’s name was Pebbles. He was named Pebbles because when they bought him he was tiny and looked like a pebble.

The same day meowing woke the president up. He was confused but when he finally spotted the cat he was terrified. Tom was putting up some posters of the cat and his phone number.

He saw a group of firemen in a truck. He followed them to the white house and saw his cat on the roof. He went to the president and told him that it was his cat.
“But how did she get up there?” asked Tom.
“I don’t know” answered the president.

They brought the cat down and Tom was very happy.

Week 23 : The Babysitter by Szymon

Another vase fell. I do not know how this happened?
Why did I have to get a babysitter?
Because I am ten, I could at least stay at my cousin’s house. This was the worst babysitter ever. I had her for a week and she had already broken three vases and four television. She breaks something if I do not listen to her and tells my parents that I broke it.

I tell them that she is lying and that I would never brake anything but they do not listen to me. I am banned from doing everything exciting and I hate her.

What if I was in charge?

Week 22 Diary Entry By Szymon


I heard the goldfish bowl fall down. I tried to save the goldfish by putting it into a cup but I slipped and the goldfish flew slowly over to the window. It was too late so my parents and I  went over to the local fish store.

I asked for the one in the biggest tank. Mr. Brown who was the owner climbed up the enormous ladder and got it for me. I was so happy and took it home but sadly straight away it died and I was the saddest person on earth.

This was the worst day of my life.

When they reached the enemy base they deployed the bomb. They put the timer to five minutes and started running away. It blew up but tragically all the men died.

They had statues built in honour of their braveness.

The Jailbreak Week 20 By Szymon


We were escaping from a prison. We were moving very fast when one of the cameras spotted us and set off an alarm. Suddenly we heard footsteps and guns being loaded and saw a bright light. Tired we ran on and managed to hide in a bush but we heard dogs barking. The policemen found one of us and he got taken back to jail.

Then I found a Skoda and broke into it. We all jumped in and I drove off. We were on the most wanted list but that did not stop us from stealing again. We were courageous because we broke into the biggest jewellery store.

The police never found us.

Suddenly they saw a man hiding a shiny object. When he sprinted off the family went to see what it was. …It was a bomb. They roared that someone had placed a bomb in a bush. When everybody fled except for the family the bomb exploded.

They put up statues to remember these people. 

Week 17 Diary Entry By Szymon

This was the best day of my life. First of all, I woke up to the chiming of my grandfather clock. Before midday, I cycled to my best friend’s house. We played with lego at his house. We also played his x-box one. Arond three o clock my family and I had a flavoursome, scrumptious and appetizing dinner.

Then we went to the zoo. I saw menacing lions, monkeys making buffoons of themselves and baboons up to their usual skullduggery. I dashed over to see a red mamba snake. It looked very scary and aggressive. After that we went home and ate supper.
