Week 14: Ghastly Portrait By Naglis

“It’s Christmas” screeched my cantankerous little sister. My sister and I scurried down stairs and there were dozens of present under our green artificial tree. “I got it, I got it” I bellowed as I danced around in delight. I held up my ticket to the new picture gallery in town clearly so that everyone could see. Excitedly, I woke up the next morning while humming songs happily. Not long after my breakfast I darted to it. I skipped into the-New Arrivals section and I spotted a unique cerulean picture and it seemed to be staring at me…

Week 14 Elf on the Shelf By Matthew D

My sister an I were decorating the Christmas tree and after a hard days work we were exhausted and decided to go to bed. The next morning I was fit to kick the door because all the beautiful decorations had been taken off the tree. Suddenly out of the corner of my eye I spotted an eye. It was my elf on the shelf correction it was my naughty elf on the shelf. I took him out of the room and put all the decorations back up again. Groaning wearily I put the last decoration up on the tree. That night I made sure I locked the door before going to bed.

Week 14: Whoops! By Marc

On Christmas Eve I had a plan to stay up and meet Santa.


“Santas here” I whispered. Running outside I saw Santa’s sleigh floating. I jumped on the sleigh and I went by the presents. Suddenly the sleigh started moving and I clenched my jaw. About 1000 feet above the ground, I tapped Santa’s shoulder.

“AAHHHHHHHHHHH!” Shouted Santa and straight away he let go of the rope holding the reindeer.


I was beginning to hyperventilate.

“You destroyed my  sleigh” Santa shouted.

“I can help you get the presents delivered,” I said and I did.

After a while … I woke up. There was a box full of presents at the end of the bed. 

Week 14 : Christmas by Tadhg

It was Christmas eve . We were putting up the decorations for the Christmas tree .The tree was artificial so it took longer to put up. We then put on the baubles  – they were all different colours .My favourite one was the gold one – it was cool and I could see my face in it . When we finished we then went to sleep .

We woke up early in the morning . It was Christmas  Day. We rushed down the stairs , ate our breakfast, talked to our family and then rushed to the Christmas tree .

Santa visited our home and under the tree was filled with Christmas presents.

Week 14 Remembering The True Meaning Of Christmas By Danny

  1. Bauble:  Hanging up the Christmas decorations with your family until you forget whose turn it is to put the star on top of the tree and then the trouble starts. But you make friends and put the star on the top of the tree together.
  2. Mistletoe:  Under which you meet the person you will live with and find true love.
  3. An Eye:  To be always watching you wherever you are, with your family or not.
  4. Presents:  When it’s Christmas day and children up at seven and hyper to see if Santa has come. And then it’s unwrapping time -the children’s favourite time but the parents had been wishing it wouldn’t happen until  later.

Week 14 The poor old man by Mathew O G

One cold Christmas eve an old homeless man was walking awkwardly down the street.

As the hours went by he checked his stolen watch –  it struck midnight and the date was December 25th . As night fell snow magically trickled down from the sky . He was extremely cold for all he was wearing was a t-shirt and a cargo pants.

He rummaged around in the snow searching for somewhere to sleep for the night. Sooner rather than later he found a bench near a house covered in fairy lights.

When morning fell he peered through the window of the house. It was Christmas morning.

Week 14 Magical Things Happen By Szymon

“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.

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.
