Something Happened by Abby


An elephant fell on the ground in the zoo, the zookeeper didn’t know what to do because they are really heavy. Everybody came to look at the elephant but the zookeeper told them to stay away. A young man decided to play the violin for the elephant. Unfortunately The zookeeper said that the elephant was dead because of old age. Ms Angry had an idea that everyone should paint the elephant and they could put it in the museum. Everyone agreed and got to work on their paintings and painted amazingly, especially the purple elephant. They were hung beautifully in the museum and everyone was happy.

Trophy by Craig

To win the 100 word challenge trophy you have to paint a picture. I saw a guy who made a red violin, but the one I liked the best was the purple shell on the beach. The one I disliked the most was the elephant. I painted a picture of the 100 word challenge trophy. When the time was up the judge picked… my painting. I was so happy! I got on the stage and held the trophy nice and high. Everyone cheered for me. I would rather that the person who painted the purple shell painting won, but I am happy.

I went to school I was very happy because we were going to do art today. We were painting violins mine was okay. The teacher was shocked. I came home to shouting it was my sister they never argued before but they were arguing over a purple bottle, my dad and I broke up the argument. I went to sleep at 8 I woke back up to the same elephant, “Ring, ring, ring it was my alarm.”

Rubble by Darragh

Nate woke up. He was stuck under rubble from the old building. He tried calling for help but no one heard him then he saw a violin. He grabbed it and used it to wedge the rubble off him. He got up and ran out off the room. He went into another room he looked around seeing a picture of an elephant and happy faces painted on the walls “this must be the kids room,” he said to himself. Suddenly he heard a car stop outside. He looked outside but the car was empty then he heard a gun being reloaded…

One day my family and I were going to the Zoo. When we got there, there was a man playing the violin at the front gate. When we got in we saw the lions, tigers and rhinos. My sister was sad that we had not seen the elephants but my mam said “we will see the elephants after having food”, my sister said “ok”, when are we getting food. “Now”, my mam said. My sister was very happy to see the elephants. When we got to the elephants, there was a sign that said don’t touch just painted. My sister said “what color is it, is it purple”, no silly its brown.

Art Exhibition by Leon

Today I went to the Art Exhibition !!! It was a surprisingly wonderful day and in my head I was like: Horreyyyy!!! I can finally go outside. But my mam was like: Lets go to the Happy Violin, and we’re going there because I hate you. She didn’t say the last part. It was as boring as it was the hundreds of other times we were there we, painted our own Monalisa with our own face on it, met the only purple elephant. Then after what seemed hours we got home. Yaayyy. I was so happy that I didn’t even go outside.

The Elephant and Her Violin by Emmanuel

It was the opening day of the brand new zoo in Dublin, and all the new animals were being introduced and everyone was excited for the arrival of the new purple elephant from Zimbabwe. It was rumored that Ellie the elephant was very talented and that she played the violin, that was painted red with a yellow happy face on it. Everyone loved it when she played her violin, but she didn’t play it for entertainment she played it when she was sad because she missed her family back home. The zookeepers knew she missed her family, so one day she woke up from her nap and there she was back in Zimbabwe, united with her family once again.

Robbery in the Art Gallery by Cillian

Yesterday there was a robbery in the DAG (Dublin Art Gallery). The robbery happened at 10pm when no one was around other than the security guards near the main entrance. The robber surprisingly managed to trick the guards by throwing a rock at them. He then sneaked through the entrance, locked the doors and walked towards the two most expensive paintings in the world!, One of them was The Purple Violin painted by Vincent Van Gogh and the other one was called The Magnificent Elephant painted by Claude Monet. Finally, he grabbed the two paintings and was in a happy mood until he was stopped by the guards and later on arrested. He has now been sentenced to life in jail.

Magical Elephant by Oliver

Once upon a time there was a magical elephant and his name was Jerry and he loved pictures.

All his life he was painting and his favorite colour was purple.

He was the best at painting violins and he was so happy.

The next day he was walking home and saw a beautiful paint show.

He ran as fast as he could to get his money.

He realised he had only five euro.

He was crying all day until his mom gave him some money.

He went to the shop and saw so many purple paints from light to dark.

The Art Competition by Oliwia

Sara really wanted a violin but she didn’t have enough money to buy one. So when the opportunity came to make lots of money quickly she took it. She entered an art competition. If she came first place she would win 200 euro and if she came 2nd she would win 100 euro. Sara took this competition very seriously and she put a lot of effort in her drawing. In the end she drew a purple elephant. When the results finally came in she found out that she had won 2nd place!!! She was very happy and she had enough money to buy the violin she so desperately wanted.

We went down stairs, we were all very happy because we got lots of presents. I got a violin. We played with what we got and then we had breakfast. I got dressed into my purple dress. It was 3:00pm so we had to go around to my auntie’s house. I painted my auntie a picture for a present.

100 w/c by Charlie

There was once a purple platypus who loved playing the violin. His name was Peter and his best friend was a blue elephant named Ella who loved to paint. Peter an Ella were going to swim in the river when out of nowhere two poachers jumped out from a bush and started shooting at Ella, they wanted the ivory in her tusks. The hunters were happy that they had finally found an elephant. Peter swam to the river bank and picked up a stick he started to hit the poachers on the back of the head, they both fell to the ground knocked out. They went home and whilst Ella painted a picture of the poachers Peter played a song on the violin.

The Holiday Renovation by Jessica H

Yesterday I redecorated my bedroom. My dad painted my room but he wouldn’t tell me what colour it was. I haven’t been in my room yet because the paint was still wet. Today I went into my room and the colour was purple and pink which I loved. I walked around my room and saw a big fluffy elephant teddy. I was so happy. My mam walked in with a new violin for me because I broke my last one. This was the best day ever. For the rest of the day I was just upstairs in my room.

Christmas Wish List by Jessica M

Dear Santa,

I have been extremely good this year. I would be over the moon with happiness if I could get a few important things to me, such as:

A brightly painted picture of a ballerina for my bedroom.

A violin to play as background music for my sister while she sings and dances.

Some purple paint so I can re-design my bedroom.

I would also like a picture of you, Mrs. Claus and all of the elves.

I will leave you some milk and chocolate biscuit cake and the reindeers some carrots and I will also leave the elves some cake too so they will be happy that people care for them as much as you and the reindeers.

Thanks so much,

Nelly the Elephant.

Elephant in the Orchestra by Mia

Today was the day I had been waiting for forever. Today I was going to play a solo. As I prepared to enter the pit. I picked up the violin and walked towards the pit when I noticed it. The big purple elephant and it was not happy. It had a hostile look on it’s face. I ran as fast as I could. It chased after me smashing several expensive painted ceramic pots. In a blind panic I threw my violin at it. Shattering the violin. It’s then that it dawned on me. It was right behind me.

The Zoo Attack by Emily

Lily and Jack went to the zoo. There was a massive queue to get in. We went to the monkey enclosure first. There was a monkey playing a violin! They were surprised. Next they saw giraffes they were so tall. The zookeeper was feeding them herbs. After they got ice-cream. They each got vanilla. Suddenly they heard a bang! They looked back it was a hostile elephant out of his enclosure. People were scattering. Lily and Jack ran out of the zoo. They were so happy to be safe. They went home. On their way home Jack painted a picture. It was the most scariest day of their lives.

The Thumping Sound by Holly

BANG!!! There was a big thumping sound coming from my window. I was terrified, but I still looked outside. It was pitch black so I couldn’t see anything. My purple toy fell off my desk and so did my painting that I only painted last night. I thought I saw an elephant so I hid under my blanket and eventually fell asleep. It was seven o’clock when I woke up to my alarm that sounded like a violin. I was happy that night was over. When I opened my curtains, I realised my town was destroyed. What am I going to do now?

Crazy Christmas Gifts by Cian

Since Christmas is near I’m going to tell you about some wacky Christmas gifts for your friends and family. The first gift is a handcrafted miniature violin. The funny thing is you’re able to play it. The second gift is a purple elephant the size of a house. Imagine you get up to go to school and you see a giant purple toy elephant just outside your house, good reason not to go to school. The last gift is a pair of underpants with a self portrait painted on it. I would recommend getting it for a nephew or a grandson. Imagine the look on their face. I hope you’re happy with your new ideas for gifts. Bye for now!

The Day I Saw An Art Show by Brian

One lovely day my friends and I were going to an art show. My friends were Aaron, Cillian, Matthew, Emmmanuel, Bartosz and Ben. The first person painted a happy eating grass elephant. The next person painted a purple violin. When, it was finished we went to the park, to play football. The teams were Emmanuel, Aaron and me against Bartosz, Ben, Cillian and Matthew. We kicked off. I passed it to Emmanuel who passed it out to Aaron on the wing but, they got the ball and were counter attacking, the match ended 3-3. What a great day!

Art Exhibition by Ben

Last week I went to an art exhibition and there was a purple elephant that was standing on his feet. On the other side of the exhibition there was a man who painted a violin and he was so happy because he had done it in under ten minutes. The art exhibition was amazing we saw a lot of cool stuff like a monkey and a snake as one animal. We also did some fun activities like face painting, making clay statues and making our own paintings with the help of a professional artist. After that we went home. We had a wonderful day!

100 w/c by Emily

It was a cold winter’s day.  I went to my friend’s house.  We watched tv for a while.  Next we painted our nails.  Ella painted her nails light blue and I painted my nails red. We were waiting for our nails to dry.  Her mam called us for lunch. Her mam asked me ”do you want something to eat?” I answered, ”No, thank you.”  My friend Ella got a chicken sandwich. I asked her brother ”do you like butter”,  ” No”, he said, ”I like marmite.” When we were finisehd we went upstairs and played Monopoly.

100 w/c by Jessica H

Today was just a normal school day.  I was making my lunch for school when my little brother came up to me an asked if I could make his lunch. Being the good sister that I am, I said of course.  He got excited and said ‘great I want a sandwich with marmite on it please.’ In my head I thought all right that’s not what I had in mind.  I thought he was going to ask for a ham sandwich or something like that.  I made him a sandwich but I put jam on it instead, because I thought he liked it.  ‘No,’ he said, ‘I like marmite.’ So I made him another sandwich with marmite.

The Dog by Zach

One day my cousins were coming over for lunch.  My cousins were Abby and Scott. We were having toast and scrambled eggs. I got out the spreads.  When my daid said to Scott ‘would you like some jam?’ ‘No, he said, ‘I like marmite.’ My dad sent me to the shop to get marmite. I couldn’t find it, but then when I was about to leave, I saw it right beside the jam.  When I got home everthing had been eaten! I put the marmite in the fridge and went outside. But, as soon as I went outside, my dad was telling me to come inside. I had been so long in the shop it was now dinner time!

Marmite or Peanut Butter by Craig

“Would you like Peanut Butter?”said Jack “no!” he said “I like Marmite,” “ok,” said Jack. Jack gave himself Peanut Butter and gave his friend Marmite. Jack went home on his bike, cycling down he almost passed his house but turned around. When, he cycked into the driveway he thought about which is better Marmite or Peanut Butter. He had never tasted Marmite before so he decided that he should try it. Jack cycled to the shop. Suddenly he saw his friend buying Marmite as well. They both said hi then Jack asked “which is better Marmite or Peanut Butter? “

Breakfast by Niamh

It was Saturday I was going to the Golf Club with my family for breakfast. We had a table booked for 9:30am. When we got there,we had a look at the menu. The waitress came and asked us if we were ready and we said “yes.” My brother went last and he got two slices of toast with butter, an egg, rashers and tea. When the breakfast came, my brothers toast had marmite on it. My brother said to my mam “I asked for butter not marmite!” My mam said ” I will ask her to change it,” “no,”; he said “I like marmite“!

Marmite by Oliver

So last night  my friend and I had a fight about what’s the best thing to put on a sandwitch.

I said,’ mayo, pork and cucumber’ and my friend said,’ Nutella.’

My friend said,’ yes’, I said,’ no’ and he said, “I like marmite.”

Then I said,’ get out of here Frank!’  (Frank said he likes marmite). My friend and I were fighting all night until he tried my sandwich and then we fought about what bread is better.

We are still fighting till this day and I think breads with seeds are the best.

Not changing my mind.

Hey guys, welcome back to our channel. Today we are going to be doing twin telepathy. How this game works is…. you need to put a board in between you and there will be three things to pick from. The first thing that will be in front is marmite, Nutella and ketchup. Sophie picked marmite because she thought James didn’t like it. James picked marmite because he loved it but Sophie said ‘James you don’t like that.’ “No,” he said, “I like marmite.” Sophie was confused but they just carried on with the game. James won the game by one point.
