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.
