A School Day by Jessica H

It was just a normal school day it was really nice outside. When I got to school everything was absolutely fine but all of a sudden it came lashing down with rain. We had to go home from school early because if we didn’t we would’ve been blocked in because of all the flooding. As soon as I stepped outside it was heavier than I expected I had to run to my mother’s car. After that there were hailstones and thunder and lightning. It was terrifying and the worst thing was, it was nearly Halloween.

The Mistake by Abby

There once a little boy named Gavin, he was walking down the town by himself. There was too much traffic where he was going so he thought it would be quicker to jump into other people’s cars. He jumped into a car and screamed “help this person is coming to kidnap me” but when he turned around he realised it was his mam. “MAM, what are you doing here?”, he realised he should never have said anything. His mam said ” for that you can carry the car out of the traffic.” Afterwards he thought said to himself “it was heavier than I expected”..

My Holiday by Niamh

I was going on my holiday to Spain for two weeks. I had to pack my suitcase when I was finished I had to weigh it. It was 25kg it was heavier than I expected! I had to unpack and start again! It took me so long because I found it hard to decide what to bring. I finally finished after an hour. I weighed it again and it was 20kg. That is just right. I got a taxi and on my way to the airport there was a crash so I was delayed I nearly missed my flight.

It Was Heavier Than Expected by Jessica M

One bright hot summer’s day I was walking through the town and saw a package lying on the ground outside a shop. I decided to lift it up and bring it in to the shop but when I went to lift it, it was heavier than expected and I almost dropped it. As I walked into the shop I asked the security woman if she could help me bring it over to the Customer Service Desk. She said yes and asked me what it was, I told her that I didn’t know and that I found it outside the shop. ”I was hoping that you could leave it in your lost and found box.”

A Great Comeback by Cillian

On Sunday my football team played a league game against Ashbourne Utd. We were due to play on grass but because of the weather it was changed to astro. As we were away we had to wake up at 9 o’clock because the match started at half 10 and it was a 45 minute drive to get there. We got a quick warm up when we arrived and soon enough the match started. We were very slow for the first 10 mins and at half time we were losing 4-1. Suddenly it started to rain and it was heavier than I expected and then 5 minutes later hail stones poured down on us so the match had to be abandoned. In the end Ashbourne were given the win.

It was Sunday morning, the sun was splitting the stones. Shamrock Rovers and Dundalk were playing in the final at the Aviva stadium. I was on my way in to the match on the train when the rain started,it didn’t look too bad, I was still excited for the match. I had a great time on the train with my dad and my brother. Finally we got off the train, it was still raining,it was heavier than I expected. When we got to the stadium the atmosphere was amazing. Rovers won it was the best day ever.

Stones by Charlie

There once was wa boy named Harry. He loved walking along the beach and throwing stones into the water. One day whilst he was walking a meteor roughly the size of his fist fell from the sky and landed on the ground with a THUD! Harry tried to lift the rock to no avail. Harry realised his friends Sean and Conor were playing football up on the cliff. He called them down to help, Sean and Conor quickly came down and Harry explained what had happened. They were astonished when they heard the story. Then they manged to lift it back to Harry’s house and break the meteor into three pieces for each person to have part of it.

“Gareth,” I could hear Bill saying my name. I suddenly felt a slight nudge on my left shoulder I turned to look at Bill and saw his unimpressed face. “Come on,” he said, “get out the truck and help me unload these boxes”. I got out of the truck and started helping Bill with the boxes, we were nearly done when I noticed a large box near the end of the truck, I waited for Bill to come back so he could help me, we tried to pick up the box but it was heavier than I expected. I got kind of annoyed and peered in to see what was inside, and what I saw was terrifying and intriguing at the same time.

World Cup Glory by Cian

Yesterday was the greatest experience of my life, I had just won the Rugby World Cup with Ireland,as their captain. The second the full time whistle came the fans went absolutely ballistic, people were dancing, jumping and pelting out the Fields of Athenry. The noise was deafening but I loved it. When I lifted the cup it was heavier than I expected but I felt so proud of my teammates for winning a game like this against a team like the All Blacks. I can’t even describe how good it felt to win it, let alone be the captain.

Bob the Builder was tasked with a really hard task. His assignment was to build a statue looking like an alien. He has 2 days and it had to be done by 7:00 am on the dot. Bob the Builder did not know what an alien looked like so he built a random structure. He thought that was an alien in my vision he said to him self. The mayor congratulated Bob the builder on his efforts and said there will be a ceremony about this tomorrow. Bob the Builder was delighted about the ceremony.

‘Today on RTE we will be talking about a statue that has appeared outside of a local primary school in Dublin.’

‘Teachers from this primary school saw this statue at eight o’clock in the morning. The statue is 25 metres tall with its head looking up. We have Tom at the statue, Tom over to you.”

‘Thank you Ciara, today the students at this primary school are intrigued by this statue. The misfortune of this statue is that it is made out of limestone and is not able to be taken down as there are too many cracks. The identity of the possible artists are limitless.’

Competition by Niamh

There was an art competition and I decided to enter it. It was a sculpting competition. I decided to make a giant. I got my idea from the BFG it was my favourite Roald Dahl book. It took me a week to sculpt and another week for it to dry. I didn’t paint it, so it was grey. I handed my sculpture to the people who are in charge of the competition. I had to wait two weeks to find out who won! The day came and I opened the envelope….. It said “well done, you won 1st place!” I was delighted.

Dear, Topaz National Park.

I am writing to say, that I do not appreciate that you made a statue of me. I get that the statue may intrigue people, but I don’t like people mocking my misfortune.

Maybe it is an irrational fear, but I do not like being tall and always feel like I am limitlessly being mocked. So I really would appreciate if you got rid of the giant, silver statue of me. If you do not get rid of it , I will get my lawyer involved.

Many thanks, Mr. Gabriel-Jones.

The Tall Man by Jessica H

I was watching the tv in my sitting room when all of a sudden a news flash came on. It had said, “News Flash giant man in Asia spotted…… everyone take cover.” I thought I wouldn’t need to because I’m in Ireland not Asia. Out of the blue it said where he was heading next and it said Australia. I was happy it was not coming my way. I fell asleep that night and then…. Bang! The whole sitting room got destroyed. I woke up in a panic and then I realised everything was fine, maybe the whole thing was just a dream.

The Shiny Silver Creature by Holly

YES!! Today is the day my family and I get to go to the carnival. Excitedly, I put on my favorite pink shoes and rushed out the door. My sister wanted to get some candy floss, I went with her. All of a sudden there were screams, horrible screams. I was petrified. From the corner of my eye, I saw a shiny, silver figure come towards my sister. I grabbed her as quickly as I could and then tried to find my family. BANG!! A gunshot came from the hot dog stand. A strange man shot the silver creature…

It all started back in 2016 in Rio. Everyone was very excited for the competition to begin. Rhys Arnold was going to be taking part in the track events. Rhys was a very tall and skinny man. He was about 20ft tall and weight 12 kg. He also had a very weird and unique running technique. Firstly he’s hands would be tucked in as if he was a chicken, secondly his head was bent so far back he would think it was about to fall of. The race was about to begin. “On your marks get set go!”. Rhys was so fast that if you blinked you would have missed him.

One sunny afternoon, my friends and I were going to the museum. We were all excited. My friends were Emmanuel, Bartosz, Ben, Cillian and Aaron. I left my house at 12 o’clock, and knocked for Aaron. He was ready to go. He grabbed his scooter, and we went to get everyone else. When we all met up it was 12:20, so we had loads of time. We went to the park, but we heard a deafening noise so we left. When we got to the museum we saw this giant statue of a man but I was still concerned about that noise…

Once upon a time there was this giant called Graham, and he was the biggest bully in the world. One time I was in school and out of nowhere BOOM!!! The roof came of and he grabbed my friend and brought him to a lake and he threw him so high that it took twenty four years for him to come back down and then the giant turned into stone. Last year about two hundred people visited and tried to paint him gold and try sell him for seventy thousand dollars. Surprisingly someone bid sixty thousand for it and spent his whole day beside it.

Once upon a time there was a rich Chinese man, he had limitless amount of money, he had anything you can imagine mansions, sports cars and private jets that would deafen you with their speed. But he didn’t have one thing that he desired, a statue.  He had a plan, his brother was a sculptor so he told his brother he can have anything in the world if he made an accurate statue. It took him 7 months to make it, it was made from strong silver. His brother was over the moon with him. His brother decided he wanted hug.

BREAKING NEWS

People have been saying that there was some sort of silver giant in a school in the U.S.A earlier today. The giant of some sort, was said to be over 8 feet tall.

“It was like something out of a horror or action film, ” says a student from the school. “Everyone was screaming and running around like mad.”

The teachers in the school called the emergency services and within 5 minutes they were at the scene. They were armed with heavy guns and weapons and cornered the giant. Helicopters were hovering over the giant with big nets at the ready.

The giant was trying to break free violently but the nets were too heavy and it fell with a crash to the ground. The emergency services said they would bring it to a lab for tests.

That’s all we have for now, but we will be back for more…..
