My Memories of School by Jessica M

In school we always learn about the world’s history and play games to represent fun things that happened then. One time we searched for gold coins that were represented with buttons. We also learned about the viola so we learned how to write some music notes. My favourite one was when we pretended we were lost in ancient history and we had to wear clothes for the year we where lost in. I pretended I was lost in the year 1905, the clothes I wore were very funny and flowy. My least favourite one was when we had to eat the food people ate in all different countries in all different years.

The Archeologist by Ashley

Being an archeologist is a very cool job, you get to find gold, skeletons and other cool fossils.

I remember hearing of a man who was an archeologist who searched for gold but never found any, but never gave up, he kept digging and digging and then one day when his work colleagues told him to give up and search somewhere else, he found an ancient skeleton with the famous, lost viola! The skeleton was said to be born in 1314 B.C.

The man was awarded on this amazing discovery and even made a documentary about it.

Marks, Get Set, Go by Ashley

I have been doing athletics for six years, I love it, especially the competitions. I remember that cross-country race where it was very tense and I was so nervous, it was the final and I really wanted to place.

I remember one of the organisers shouting “Marks, Set, Go!” and we were off. It was a 2000 metres race, so I had to set a pace. I overtook three girls and now I was in fourth place so that’s when I knew I should run….FAST!

I overtook the girl who was third, but she was right behind me, I started to sprint and finished. I had placed!

How Ashley Became Famous by Jessica M

Bang! Ashley was really scared but knew she had to go into the cave and save her sisters Laila and Isabel, because a monster had captured them. As Ashley sneakily creeped into the cave she tripped over a rock and made a loud noise. The monster had heard it and started growling that’s when she knew she should run, grab her sister and run back home. As they were running out of the cave Laila and Isabel had told Ashley it was a prank. Ashley didn’t believe them until lots of people started running after them and showed her a video they took of it. Ashley allowed them to make a film out of it but only so she could be famous.

A Morning Walk by Jessica M

One day Amy and Ava were going on a morning walk with their dog, down to beautiful lake. When they got there they were amazed by the view and how clear the lake water was. After a while of looking around their dog had fallen into the water to find that it was quite deep. They had to jump into the lake to get the dog. They had seen when they were looking around that there was a beautiful waterfall at the end of the lake. When had managed to catch up with the dog they were a bit late and had just fallen down the waterfall! When they got to the end they wanted to do it again the next day they went on a walk but they wanted to leave the dog behind.

The Best Walk by Ashley

I used to go on walks maybe 2 or 3 times every week, but ever since Covid-19 has started, I go on walks every day.

Yesterday I went on an amazing walk with my dog, where I went was like a beautiful forest surrounded by mountains, it also had a very nice waterfall with a lake. It sounded so calm and quiet, especially with the waterfall.

I threw the ball for my dog and it ended up in the lake, my dog dived right in and caught the ball.

When I looked at my watch I realised it was time to go, but I didn’t want to leave. I would definitely be coming here tomorrow.

A Day in Each Other’s Shoes by Jessica M

One day two friends called Amy and Ava were in the zoo arguing as always. After they finished that they decided that they would spend a day in each other’s shoes. Amy had a very poor background while Ava was quite rich. As they were doing what the other usually does Ava found out that Amy stores her clothes in a box that sits under a brown chair. Amy discovered the Ava has a sky view roof and she is very good at art as she has a picture of a realistic leaf hanging over another picture of a racoon. At the end of the day the girls agreed that whenever they argue they would spend a day in each other’s shoes so they understand each others point of view.

The Screams by Ashley

I was in the forest with my friends, we had to stay close, we didn’t want to lose anybody.

The deafening screams echoed through the cold night, the sound was worse than when you scrape a blackboard. One of my friends had told us that coming here in the middle of the night was a bad idea, we ignored her though. It was cold and dark with only two torches to help us see in front of us.

We heard the screams again, except this time louder so we knew we were close. That’s when something ran past us, we had found it.

The Night Before Halloween by Jessica M

One dark, stormy night two girls were getting ready for Halloween. They were so excited to go trick or treating. Before they went to bed they heard a noise coming from outside so they went out to see what it was. Directly in front of the door was a note with a clue trial. The girls decided to do it, the first clue led them to a dark cave. When they arrived at the cave there was a clown staring at them. The girls let out a scream. The deafening scream echoed through the cold night and the girls ran…

Homeless by Cian

My life is empty,
I live nowhere and everywhere,
I beg and beg,
I get donations,
I’m hungry,
I’m thirsty,
I’m scared as I hear the deafening screams echoed through the cold night.
I’m innocent and guilty,
You see me sometimes,
On T.V or in person,
I need your help,
I need everyone’s help,
To stay alive,
To stay alive and have hope,
Have hope for a better future,
Or a normal future,
You know who I am,
I am poor,
I am unfortunate,
I am homeless.

The Vault by Darragh

One day a man named Nick was walking to work. When he was half an hour away from work, he saw a tree. He went to inspect it but when he got to the tree, he realised that the tree was made out of steel. Suddenly he found a lever so he pulled it. A door opened so he stepped in side.

The Call of Quarantine by Abby

Today my friends and I went on a FaceTime call for the whole day. While we were on call we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner together and Niamh and I had the same dinner called lasagne. Jessica and Ashley had pasta, we thought it was super funny to have the same dinner at the same time. Then it started getting late, my mam ask me if I wanted to take a walk down the beach and watch the moon rise. When we got there I was able to show the girls the view from my phone. It was amazing.

The Magical Sunset by Jessica M

One day Ava and her friend Mia got up early in the morning and walked to the beach to see the sunset. They were so excited but when they got there it was a little different from what they had expected, the sun was already up in the sky. They took some pictures and when they looked at them there was one werewolf in the picture. They looked up at the sunset and there was no werewolf to be seen. Ava was getting scared and wanted to go home but Mia thought it was cool and wanted to investigate more.

The Full Moon by Jessica H

It was a lovely Saturday night when I decided to go to my hangout spot by a tree. As I was leaving my house I noticed there was a full moon, so I ran back inside and got my camera to take some nice pictures. I reached the spot and I sat down and just admired the sky and how peaceful it was. I set up my camera and I got a good few shots but I noticed something in the background of one of them. I looked a bit closer and it looked like some sort of a dog.

The Graveyard by Cian

There is a myth about a graveyard that I live close to. They say when you walk near a grave something or someone pulls you right down into the ground. I’ve never gone into it so my friend Jack and I decided to see if the myth was real. So we were walking into the graveyard and I heard this unearthly sound it was like a screeching by a human. Although it frightened us we kept walking. Suddenly I turned to talk to Jack but he was gone. I heard the sound again and something was pulling me down.
