Even as a kid, he journeyed to the deepest parts of the forest where Dryad’s tree was said to be. He met many creatures and they guided him in his journey to Dryad. Until one day he found her.

The Adventure by Ashton

Get down, the army man shouted!

When the werewolf came the bullets did nothing to him. Then they used their last weapon it was a tree launcher! It turns everything into wood. It worked just in time, right before the werewolf was about to eat them.

We have the to hide it, said Justin.

In the woods? asked Craig

Yeah OK and if anyone finds it and asks what happened we will say it was just built!

Good idea!

Five months later they came back and the werewolf was still there. I wonder if anyone will discover it.

The Tree That Moves by Kyle

It was a bright spring afternoon. It was a Friday and it was 2 o’clock. I was roaming through a gigantic, magnificent forest I had discovered. There was lots of squirrels and other animals like that. There was lots of huge trees; some of the biggest I had ever seen. All of a sudden, something moved behind me. I spun around sharply and saw a tree. This wasn’t just a normal tree though. It was shaped exactly like a human. Then it moved. I screamed and started running away. After a few seconds I heard a familiar voice behind me. It was my best friend! He had pranked me! Phew!

The Tree Man by Ben

Isabel was going on a nature walk through the mythical forest. She didn’t see anyone near her so that got her a little scared but she just tried to ignore it. Suddenly she heard a crackle “Maybe it’s just the leaves?” worried Isabel. Now she can see the end now but she wanted to explore more. She saw a danger sign so for some reason she thought it would be ok to go down the route. Then she saw the most astonishing moment of her life. A tree that looked like a giant. “HAHAHAHAH!” screeched Isabel. She will never forget that moment.

AAAA!! Where are we going to stay?

Come on Jill we are going to stay under this tree.

Who dares to stay here?

Me, the tree, I will not let you say here not after you picked up the bodies of my friends.

We are sorry.

No you are not, you are banished from these woods.

The Waking Tree by Daniel

It was about 7pm and me and my friend Timmy had just finished watching a movie. “Eh- it was alright,” said Timmy. Then my Dad came in and told us to go play outside. Later we were outside playing with my football when a massive tree person walked over. “…. Tim.. RUN!” I screamed. Suddenly the tree person jumped and ran away. Hours passed and the tree person didn’t come back. “Guess it was scared of us?” I said and me and Timmy walked back to my house. When we got home I told Dad and Mam everything but they just laughed.

The Roman Tree by Luke

The Roman empire sent a man to go and invade Ireland and check the country for any threats to the Roman army. One day he came across a village. He went into the village to get some supplies then someone noticed he was from Rome so they chased him out of the town into the forest. He ran deep into the forest but then he stopped because he came across a hut. He knocked on the door. A celtic witch came out and chased him on her broom. She ended up catching him and turned him into a tree forever.

The Weird Looking Tree by Daniels

On day Daniels and Paula went to the forest. At 3am a noise came from the forest and scared them off.  An hour later they went back into their tents and saw a big tree shaped like an person. ‘It was not there earlier yes?’ said Paula.

‘That is creepy!’ said Daniels. Suddenly the tree started to move. They ran as fast as tehy could. They ran up a lot of hills, it was exhausting. After the miles they ran they lost the weird looking tree and they ran home frightened.

After a few months they forgot everything they saw.

The Woods by Emma

So today I’m going on a road trip to America with my mam, dad, sister and my friend. So first we sang some songs in the car next we found a fast food place. I got a burger and chips and coke it was delicious.

Our first stop was Nature Valley camp site.  My dad and sister set the tent up. We had some sausages and bacon for dinner and then roasted marshmallows and made smores and had pop corn. About 5 hours later me and my friend went to get more sticks in the woods, but we got lost and we saw a big tree. It was really mossy and green and overgrown we screamed all the way back.

The Magical Tree by Aaron

I am going for a family walk with my family in the forest. We have gone to Canada so we don’t know our way around. I asked mam and dad if we could bring a picnic, they said yes. Eventually we started our trek in the forest. We were looking for a flat surface to have our picnic.” I found a flat surface”. While mam and dad were setting up the picnic I checked out the area around where we were having our picnic. I found an unusual looking tree with a hole at the bottom. I crawled through the hole and somehow I was back home in Ireland.

The Mysterious Island by Alfie

A team of explorers have been tracking a mysterious island that seems to move. They were flying over it, they geared up and jumped out of the helicopter. They deployed their parachutes and slowly moved closer to the ground. Eventually they reached the ground. The helicopter got further and further until it was a tiny dot then it disappeared into the big blue sky. The island started moving. Then they realised the island was a giant turtle! They made their way through the woods. They had to get off it before the the turtle took a dive . They made a boat with sticks and sailed into the big blue sea.

The Forest Of Mystery by Eden

We were so excited to go to the forest camp today. Apparently the forest has never been fully adventured so we might just be the first. 

We got there at about 2 o’clock in the afternoon. It took us a little while to set up our sleeping bags in the cabins. 

Next the camp leaders let us and everyone else go and explore the forest. Even though the camp leaders said not to go too far, me and my brother went so far that we couldn’t hear the group but the things we saw in the forest of mystery.

The Witch’s Tree by Tadhg

It was a cold dark Halloween evening in St. Anne’s Park in Dublin. Great Grandad O’Shea about to start telling his scary stories down at The Witch’s Tree. When all of a sudden it started to lash rain. But we still went down slipping and sliding on the wet ground while trying to avoid stepping in the dog poo scattered all over the path way and the flooded grass. It was a horrible night in the wet and dark. As soon as we arrived at the tree we took shelter from the rain under the leaves. But when he started to tell the story it was amazing.

Tree Monster by Rorí

I walked through the dark woods with my friends. But all of a sudden one of my friends was gobbled up by a big green tree. We were absolutely terrified. Mathew, Muhammud and I ran deeper into the woods. But the
big spikey green tree caught Mathew. Muhammud and I ran so far we had to eat something. All of a sudden a cottage appeared in the distance. Muhammud and I felt something on our shoulders. We ran rapidly down the
forest trail. In shock we found our parents having dinner in the cottage with the moster, they were having burritos.

2020 was a weird year for everyone. It started well and on the 12th of March everything stopped and even school. We had two weeks of no school before lockdown hit. Everything moved online work,school and even sports training. This was all due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. On the 13th of June the restrictions eased bit by bit. Until the 31st of December when the 3rd lockdown came around. There have been positives from the pandemic. The first vaccine in Ireland was given on the 27th of December. But there is still a long way till we get back to normality.

Baby Polar Bear by Donnchadh

Actual account from Baby Polar Bear
One snowy evening in the Arctic we were just finished our salmon dinner. We were going to go asleep when all of a sudden the ice began to crack, everything stopped and we saw Bluey the seal. He’d come to warn us that we had to leave immediately!
Mammy threw me on her back. We jumped into the ice water and began to swim. Lots of other animals were in the water, we saw penguins, seals and even a white fox.
Everyone was paddling towards the other ice berg. It felt ages , but we made it. We are safe  for now.

The Time Stopper by Daniel

Today I got up and got dressed for school. When I was walking to school something didn’t feel right. Suddenly I realise someone stopped time!. It was actually pretty cool. I got to roast the bullies without getting punched and I didn’t have to go to school. An hour passed and I got bored so I looked for the guy or girl who stopped time. Later I walked into the creepy side of park and Ifound her. She was a bit confused because she didn’t know she had stopped time. I told her to unstop time and she did. So I went to school.

Golden Bracelet part 2 by Rose

”Ugh” Jasmin groaned as she woke up from the dense ground. All she remembered was the sleepover, the golden bracelet, and she also recalled the girl, she was the last thing she saw before she collapsed. She got up and looked around, it looked like the Underworld. Then for a brief second everything stopped. Jasmin was human, and the Underworld was adjusting to that. ”Thought I would be in heaven.” She joked to herself. As she was looking around Jasmin saw the same little girl she saw in her home. The girl started saying that Jasmin will stay in the Underworlds eternally, until she can see to it that Jasmin is in a position to ensure that she’ll not get targeted.

‘Targeted?!? Is she trying to help me…”

The Greatest Tech by Kyle

It was a sunny Saturday, the fourteenth of June 2037. Thousands of people gathered around this small robot but millions were watching on TV. This was the greatest piece of technology ever invented. It would be very expensive and it would get everyone talking. 10 MINUTES! This is what it said on the big screen in front of everybody. Everyone waited excitedly. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. One minute left. Everybody and everything stopped and… the robot moved. It flew high into the air and started dropping sweets that came out from the inside of his hand. This was the greatest thing ever made.

Pat’s Story by Ben

Pat had woken up from a long winters nap, he looked up at his alarm clock and it was 11 O’CLOCK. “OH NO OH NO OH NO’ Screamed Pat at the top of his voice. Pat rushed out the door like lightning and he closed the door like thunder. He was now on the motorway / highway at 150kph but suddenly everything stopped and Pat had to push the brakes as hard as he possibly could. “AHHHHHHHHH” Shouted Pat scared for his life. He looked through every car window and everyone’s face was frozen. It may help him to get to work but would it stay forever?

The praying mantis are in a fight whit the scorpions over the tall grass. The mantis hid in the trees and the scorpions hid underground by making holes in the tunnels. So they waited and waited until some scorpions came to the surface and mantis jumped out of the trees, so the war began. The scorpions had big pointy stingers but the mantis were very agile. The war raged on for a few hours. Suddenly they heard a big boom it was a human emerging from its cave, suddenly everything stopped and started again it grabbed a lawnmower. The lawnmower! They screamed.

Odette brought the dress over to the competition, unaware what might happen next.
