Week 23: The Chocolate Factory By Sean

One day a factory was opened and it was a chocolate one and if you got a white ticket inside a bar you would be able to go inside. But there was a boy that was poor and he only had £2.  The bar was  £3.

He was walking one day and he saw a red ladder that had a £10 note under it.  He was very happy until he saw it sinking in the wet pavement so he ran and got it out.

He was very happy. He got the ticket.  And today he is the owner of the factory.

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 23: Superstitious Simon By Naglis

Simon was superstitious. He believes in every omen he knows. For example walking under a ladder and never growing again. Every year he would make a wish to the local wishing well. Sadly his wish never comes true, but he doesn’t give up.

As he was walking on the pavement he turned right and he arrived. He got three coins (that was his lucky number), threw them into the river and thought. “I wish that I could have a glimmering red Ferrari.” He watched them sink slowly. Next morning he woke up looked outside and guess what he saw… Nothing!

“I give up” he roared.

Week 23 At The End of the Rainbow By Szymon

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…

Week 23: Never Will Believe Again By Marc

Sprinting down the pavement I  was going to my best friend.  He’s so funny -every time I see him and it’s like watching a clown falling over. Going there I walked under a mammoth size red ladder. Accidently I dropped a couple of coins on the ground  The isolated house that I never wanted to walk by was where I dropped the coins.

Later on, it was really late so my mam came to collect me. First, she saw the coins on the ground and she thought I got kidnapped as she knew they were mine. She had that sinking feeling. Then she realised  that I was there.

Week 23 Typical Larry By Matthew D

I’m Larry the Leprechaun and I love gold coins. “Yipe,” I cried as I saw a rainbow at the bottom of the valley. And everyone knows at the end of the rainbow there’s a pot of gold. I just have to make sure that my malicious Leprechaun friends won’t beat me to it.

Within five minutes I was where the gold was. I  looked in admiration at the fine specimen of gold coins. I got my red ladder climbed up and grabbed the pot out of the tree. As I was walking on the pavement I saw a little fish in the water and  I peered in to have a better look.

“Oh no”I cried as I dropped all the gold coins into the murky pond.

Week 23 The game By :Tadhg


The coins sank into the water. There was no way of getting them out as the water was too deep and they were already sinking to the bottom. I knew I would never get my new game anyway.

Jungle Journey was too expensive to buy. Suddenly I saw it –  I saw the game just left on the pavement under the red ladder. I rushed towards it and grabbed it and went home to try the new awesome game.

I inserted the disc and grabbed my controller. I clicked into the game. It showed the names. I chose Wolf Stone because the name sounded cool. … Suddenly I wasn’t in my room anymore ..I was in the jungle…

Wek 23, Sinking, By Tim

I was walking on the pavement heading for the ship. On my way I saw a man who fell off a red ladder so I decided to go and help him out. I continued my walk to the harbour. I counted my coins to see if I had enough to buy something from the gift shop on the ship. Luckily I was the first person to get on the boat. I went to my room that was big and opulent. I jumped onto my bed and went straight to sleep.

Suddenly a few days later the ship hit a rock that made a big hole in it and water started pouring in. A few minutes later the ship started sinking. I was terrified so I looked for something I could float on.

30 minutes later.

The ship had completely sunk and I was rescued by the rescue team.

Week 23 Disappointed by Mathew O G

It was Wednesday and Mary asked a man politely to paint her house. Mary told him to surprise her with the colour because she was staying in the Pavement Hotel for the weekend.

The painter said okay with a smug smile on his face. On Saturday the painter came with his red ladder.  She paid him a few coins and he waved Mary good bye. As soon as she turned the corner he left..

When she was coming home excitement  fizzed inside her like a fresh glass of lemonade… But to her disappointment, the house wasn’t even painted.  She was beginning to get that sinking feeling…

Week 23 A Terrible Day in Irish History By Danny

On the 10th of April 1912 the Titanic was just about to set sail. Everyone was waiting for the red rope ladder to come down so that the people could get on.  Poor people were counting their coins to see if they had enough to get on. Other people were standing on the pavement waving at their family saying goodbye.

Four days later news came in and it wasn’t good. The Titanic was just after sinking. Everyone with family on the ship felt a bit queasy and were squirming with sadness yet hopeful they might have survived.

A terrible day in Irish History.

Week 23 The Toy By Ciarán

My friend and I were on our way to the toy shop to buy the brand new red wreaker 2 game. Once we got to the store we got the last copy but we had a sinking feeling because we were a couple of coins short.
So we walked out of the shop empty handed.  I told my friend I would catch up to him later. I kept walking until I came across a ladder and under it were the coins I needed.  But when I reached out to get them I got my hand stuck in the pavement – it was wet cement.

Week 23 Unlucky By Jack

It was a hot spring day and Pat was working on the tiles of a house.  After a while Pat decided to ask the owner of the house he was working on could he have a bottle of water.  The owner said yes and Pat set off to work again.  He climbed up his red ladder onto the roof and started working. Pat thought he forgot to pay the owner for the water so he hopped down off the ladder and ran to the front door and knocked.

” I’m so sorry,” he told the owner as he gave the owner the coins.

” It’s ok,” the owner said, “you didn’t need to pay me.”

“Oh my word -you are sinking into the pavement- I forgot to tell you it had just been set – now it’s ruined.  You are fired!” the owner screamed.

” I’m sorry…” Pat began but before he could finish his apology he was shoved out the door.  Pat just walked away sadly.
