It was the first of April meaning it was April fools. I knew my brother would prank me. The worst part was that I had a cold and couldn’t smell things. I woke up to my brother holding a water gun up to my face. My parents were gone shopping so I knew it wouldn’t end there. I got up and ate breakfast only to find my phone hidden. After a long time of asking my brother for it, he finally showed me where it was. I was thirsty so my brother poured me … vinegar. It looked just like a glass of water but when I tasted it I almost vomited.
It was the day before Christmas and all you could hear was gunfire. I was anxious for the to end. I quickly fell asleep later that day. When I woke up I could see something odd.
Everyone was playing in the snow. Everyone was laughing, having fun. I rapidly forgot about all the bad things that happened to me. Even the most serious soldier Gerald, just couldn’t stop laughing. I joined the group that were playing football. For a moment I thought the war has ended … but the next day my thoughts were ruined by the sound of gunfire again.
Luke’s class was going on a trip to the Amazon Rainforest visiting one of the largest tribes. When preparing for the trip Luke ate a bit too much. He ate a sandwich with melted cheese, greasy rashers and scrambled egg.
They left their school at 5 in the morning. On the next day, they arrived in South America and took a bus to meet the tribe. When they arrived there they were given brown soup that tasted like salt and vinegar. The tribe’s leader was as tall as a giraffe. The tribe was very nice to them.
There is a forest in Northern America and whenever a person goes into it they never come back.
A person called Chris is going to explore it. He knows he might not come back but he isn’t going back. As he enters the forest he can already hear the laughter that makes his hair stand up. As he continues into the forest he has a sense of foreboding. He turns around and sees little shadows. Suddenly he is surrounded by little creatures so he starts running…
“Remember – it has to be green” the lady snapped.
Suddenly the painter remembered that he had a secret. It was that he was colourblind. He had only applied for this job because it was easy money. While he was picking out the colour he knew what might happen.
The person he was painting for was as vicious as a lion. He knew he would be in big trouble. A week passed and he was finished painting. The lady came into the house and she was astonished. The lady started screaming at the man.
” But it is the wrong colour!”
Hungrily I pulled out a potato but something seemed odd about it. It looked like it got blight. Ravenously I ripped out the rest of the potatoes. They all looked off. I was apprehensive because I was too poor to buy more crops.
I was so cross that I lobbed all the potatoes across the field. Quickly the news spread across the country that all the potatoes had gotten blight. I knew my only chance of survival was to get on a ship because I didn’t want to go to a workhouse but what would happen to me on one of those ships?
Not too long ago a box full of expensive jewellery was stolen and everyone was looking for it. We were looking for it for about two weeks but we couldn’t find it. One day as I was walking at the fringe of the town I was looking in the bushes. Suddenly I found a box and it was the same one that has been missing. I opened it but it was empty. What a surprise!
Then I saw a man sneaking to a car with the jewellery and I called the police. The man was caught but not all the jewellery was found.
Slowly I walked on the pavement, my heart sinking. I wanted to go and buy myself ice cream but I didn’t have the money to buy one as my parents weren’t home. I wanted to get a normal one with red, sweet strawberry sauce on top. I saw my neighbour on a ladder washing his windows but I didn’t say anything. Suddenly I saw a rainbow at the fringe of the forest. I ran as quickly as a cheetah and within two minutes I found myself at the pot of gold. As I was reaching for the coins … I heard rustling in the bushes…
It was my first day of work and I had already made a bad impression of myself. I began working at a crisp factory at the fringe of the city. I decided to impress my boss by making a new flavour for crisps. It was pepper and vinegar.
I had made some and ate them with my boss but there was one problem; the vinegar was too sharp. One of the employees who always wanted to be the best had a smug smile on his face. I almost got fired for my idea until my boss decided to sell them in bright eye-catching colours. They were a hit.
“W hat’s in it ?” enquired the child.
” It’s a surprise” answered his parents.
It was Christmas Day and the child was opening presents. He got a massive, stuffed, colourful parrot and straight away he threw away his small white teddy bear. That was his favourite toy for years. He stopped playing with the teddy even though he used to love him. The parrot was crafty and knew how to make the child forget about the teddy. One day the child was looking for old toys to sell. He came across the teddy and threw the parrot away.
He was remembering the old times.
I was preparing my guitar for the contest that was on that night. At seven o’ clock I left my house and I was nervous because it felt like I was being stalked. Once in a while, I saw little eyes; it felt completely out of tune.
I took a shortcut through the old, isolated forest. Suddenly I heard rustling in the bush across of me. I had a sense of foreboding. To my surprise it was just a small cat. It followed me so I decided to keep it. That night I was triumphant and won the contest.
I left my house to go to school. I met up with my friend at the park and then we walked to school. It was a fun day at school but when I got home I realised something was wrong. My dog didn’t run up to me like she always did. I called out her name.
There was NO trace of her. “But how could she just disappear?” I whispered to myself.
After a week of her missing I saw a glimpse of a Labrador at the park. I ran after it and then I saw it slowing down and collapsing. It was my dog and it was wounded.
The code was almost finished so I went to grab some food from the cafeteria. I ate chicken with mashed potatoes and for dessert I took a milkshake. This was a new pink milkshake so I took it into my office. For about two minutes I watched the bubbles pop.
I finished the code but before I could save it I accidentally knocked my milkshake over and it spilled all over the laptop. I picked it up and the cup was empty.
My menacing and cantankerous boss came in and fired me. Then I had to ride my bicycle home.
One child eagerly asked his parents if he could go outside. After a while he was allowed to go outside. First, he strolled over to the park and swung on the swings. After that, he went to his friend’s house to play. His friend just recently bought a game for the PlayStation 4 so they played it and finally, they played Monopoly. It was getting dark so he had to go home. He was walking carelessly along the road when suddenly he saw a light. The light blinded him. Then something struck him.
“Why!? Why won’t you let me out?'”
It was Christmas Day and I was in jail. I was waiting for something magical to happen since it was December. I went to bed exhausted but I couldn’t fall asleep. I was just too sad but eventually, I fell asleep. When I woke up I went for breakfast and started wolfing it down. Then I strolled over to my cell.
I lay down but suddenly a guard called me over. He opened the cell door and took me home. I hoped something magical would happen. I just had to believe.
My family was waiting for me with presents outside the house.
“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…
“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.
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.
“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.
“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…
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.
