Week 16, A Great Day, By Tim

Dear Diary,

Yesterday was my little sister’s 6th Birthday. She was so happy and she got a lot of presents. Her first present was a small pink bicycle then she got a toy gun that shoots bubbles.

The gun was empty so I filled it up with water and soap. We both went to play in the back garden. She fired her gun and bubbles flew around us and then she shot me.

Later we had McDonald’s and Domino’s Pizza. After that we went back home and had the big, triple chocolate fudge cake Mom had baked, it was delicious. We got tired and we both fell asleep.

Week 15, The Asteroid by Tim

A week ago an asteroid had been spotted entering the Milky Way galaxy. NASA had been trying to figure out how to stop it. Most people didn’t know what to do but one man named John Carter had an idea –  he had told the government to shoot a nuke at the asteroid so it could explode into a million pieces. Some thought that this was a bad idea but John was the only person who knew what would happen.

NASA launched the nuke as the asteroid past Neptune. The nuke hit it and the asteroid exploded. The explosion was so bright that the light blinded him. John was so happy that he saved the human race.

Week 14, The Eye Of Jesus by Tim

It all began on the day before Christmas. I was giving my little sister a Christmas card when all of a sudden a portal opened up in the family room. I walked in and the I saw a big red present. A second later my Mom, Dad and my sister walked into the portal. The portal closed up and suddenly the present started shaking and jumping around. It opened and a big blue bauble came out of it with a picture of me and my whole family in it. Then some mistletoe came out but I was very confused about the eye.

“The mistletoe means love and the eye stands for the eye of Jesus” my dad said.

Eventually the portal sucked us back into our living room.

One of the boys decided to buy a bottle of fresh water. They tried to run back but they were still tired so they walked. When they got to the house the boy that was waiting had fallen asleep. So one of the boys dared the other to pour water on the sleepy one’s face. He did it and  the 2 boys started laughing.

Kanturk Arts: Infected

A long time a young boy named Jay was reported missing on November 1996. He wasn’t found after a school trip. He didn’t know the way home because he was only 7 years old. His parents were also helping the police to find him and the rest of his classmates.

10 years later Jay was found but his old classmates weren’t found. They had found him at an old abandoned mansion which had been there for almost 63 years. The police had investigated the mansion to see if the other kids were there.

As the police checked the mansion they found three other kids who went missing a couple of weeks ago. One of the police went to check the basement downstairs. He was shocked when he saw all the children lying down on the floor starving to death. They were all taken to the Hospital. One of the doctors saw that three of the children were infected with some type of virus. They looked like as they were going to eat Jay.

Jay was taken home to his parents. Hours later more people were infected, every police station in the city was infected so no one could help the family. Luckily Jay’s dad had built a small bomb shelter a couple of weeks before. He had stored food inside the shelter. Jay’s dad told Jay’s mom to stay in the shelter.

So Jay and his dad went to look for a plane or a helicopter in the military. They found a small plane that the whole family could fit inside. Jay’s mom couldn’t wait any longer for them so she disguised herself as a zombie and she ran as fast as she could to the military.

As soon as she got there she saw Jay and dad trying to send a nuke because there was no cure for the virus. They launched and quickly got inside the plane and left off to a safe place until the nuke hit the ground. As the nuke hit the ground the family was already out of the country. So they were safe

Why I like wearing the school jersey

Hello my name is Tim, I am in 5th class ST. Colman’s Boys National School, Kanturk. Today I will tell you why I like wearing the school jersey.

If you are on a school tour to the zoo and you get lost, then your teacher or principal  might see you because you have the same jersey as your classmates on. Also if it’s the final of soccer, GAA or rugby or anything that your school is wearing in a big stadium and get lost your parents will be able to see you in the large crowd of supporters.

I also love wearing the school jersey and representing my school in a football match or any other sport your school plays. The school jersey also means you are being respectful to your school. It also means you are taking part in something, like a group, team or even a community.

The most important thing is that you don’t let your team or school down.

Week, 7 The Contraption By Tim

One day as I was walking home  I saw a weird looking contraption. It looked like  a gun, so I picked it up. I rushed home to show my dad. My dad picked it up and he pulled the trigger by accident. He shot his bottle of water and it turned into a lego piece.

My mouth fell open. I went out to the back garden and tested the gun on myself. I pulled the trigger and I turned into a small lego figure. I was so small that the  ladybugs around me were bigger. I pulled the trigger again and I went back to normal.
