Treasure Chest by Cillian

In the fifth century there was a clan of pirates called the Skullrippers. They were the most powerful, the most fiercest and the meanest pirates in all of the seven seas. One day their captain Richard Heath AKA Scar found a treasure map on shore. He looked at where the X was and realised that it was miles away. He was reluctant to not go and set off with his crew. It was a long and tough journey but they eventually reached an island. They spotted a cave and saw something shiny. It was the treasure chest! They opened it but it was empty. What a surprise!

The Magic Box by Cian

It was home time and Sam was just about to leave the classroom when suddenly he heard a strange ticking sound. Sam looked around the entire classroom until eventually he figured out that the sound was coming from the box beside the teacher’s desk. Sam carefully examined the box looking to see where the ticking sound was coming from. After a while Sam got bored because he couldn’t figure out where the noise was coming from, then suddenly the ticking noise got louder and louder until it turned into a screeching noise. Sam panicked so he lifted the box carelessly and said “its empty. What a surprise” then suddenly he was sucked into the box and was never to be seen again.

The Taxi by Charlie

My family and I went on a holiday to Orlando in America. We got into a taxi and started driving towards our hotel that was half an hour away. I started playing games in my phone, about ten minutes past then all of a sudden the taxi came to a stop. The driver checked the bonnet of the car but nothing was wrong there, he got back in and looked at the fuel light it was red. He told us that the fuel tank was empty. What a surprise and not a pleasant one because the hotel was still twenty minutes away…

100 w/c by Ben

Yesterday was my 11th birthday. I went to Bounce N Beyond. When we got there we got our socks on and went jumping. After a while I saw someone do four flips. Suddenly I heard someone get sick all over the place and we had to leave. My family and I went to a one star restaurant. One time I heard someone got nothing from a happy meal. When the food came I opened the happy meal and of course it was empty. What a surprise that there was absolutely nothing in it.

100 w/c Ben

In 1992 there was a well called Sinking coins. It was located on an Island off the coast of France. Thousand of tourists would visit and drop a red coin in the well. In August a rich man came to the well and dropped 15,000 coins. My partner said we should go sometime. After August we decided to go to the well. Outside the airport there was a ladder on the pavement and I walked through it by accident. At the gate we missed our flight because the plane left 10 minutes early. I said we should never walk under a ladder because it’s bad luck. We went home and looked for other flights to get to France.

Crash Boom by Cian

German bombs are flying everywhere, I don’t know what do, I can’t find my family and everywhere is red and wet with blood. I crouch under a table in my house that is destroyed now by the bombs. I hear screams as I examine the room to find a safe way out. As I began to creep through the ruins of my house, I saw some dirty coins on the floor. Suddenly the black rain got heavier and heavier, it arose from the pavement and transformed into large puddles. I had to get out of the house. I saw an old ladder, I used it to get up to the remains of the roof. I huddled down in the tight space hoping I would survive.

A bird flew down and landed beside me he said, “Climb to the top and you will receive a homework pass!” I agreed. About ten minutes later a bird flew into me an I almost fell off, but I kept going, eventually I got to the top. The bird congratulated me then he tapped his foot and the entire ladder collapsed. I woke up on the ground beside my bike…

Ladder by Oliver

Once upon a time there was a ladder that was clear, red and was alive.

He helped people but he never got something back.

One day he sank into a pavement and people gave him coins.

The next day people came with a hammer and damaged the pavement.

He was happy but then the person left the pavement on the legs.

He said” flip! Now he will use me.”

The person used him as a ladder but he always spilled the paint and then the next year he was just a ladder.

“The ladder is not clear red an more” he said.

A Fun Day by Aaron

One morning I woke up and I had to go to my boss to get coins to pay for a red ladder for the building site. Once we were done with the ladder we started to build a pavement. After we made the pavement I went home and went for dinner with my dad. Then when we were done we went to play football with my dog. When we got there my dog got very excited. She got tired very fast because she was running a lot. After a will we went back and washed my dog then we had pancakes for pancake Tuesday.

The Titanic by Ashley

I am a crew member of the Titanic and I will tell you a bit of information….

While the people were building the Titanic the residents of the inspecting company came to examine the ship and said to put the ship into shallow water to see if it would float and it did. The ship had red at the bottom and lots of ladders.

Finally the ship was about set sail, lots of passengers scurried down the pavement posing for the old fashioned cameras (passengers were so excited they kept on dropping coins).

As the ship was maybe half way there the Titanic tragically hit an ice-berg sending it sinking in a couple of hours after the crew members saying ‘the coast is clear’, lots of people sadly died.

I’ll never forget the Titanic.

The Park by Niamh

It was early in the morning. I was on a walk with my family. I was on the way to the shops and we saw someone with a ladder. After we went to the park. On the way I saw a bird that was dead with red thick blood all around it. When we got there my dad’s coins fell out of his pockets. On the way home my sister stepped on a pavement that wasn’t set and my sister was sinking. We all had to pull her out. We got home and we had a shower and got into our pyjamas!

The Oscars by Mia

On Sunday I woke up and watched a documentary about sinking ships. At 8 PM I was going to the Oscars. Since I am the only resident of the house the landlord only had to examine to see if the bowl was clean and then handed it to me. I wore a red suit to the Oscars. On the way I slipped on the pavement. When I arrived I spent a dollar coin on popcorn and a drink . The cup had a ladder on it. At the show Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper sung Shallow. A girl behind me moaned tragically about my hair.

That was a wonderful Christmas Eve.

The Angry Man by Ashley

Last year I went on holidays with my family to Spain, there was a big swimming pool with a slide and a gorgeous buffet.

My family and I were at a vivid restaurant with another buffet when all of a sudden a shabby looking man jumps out of his seat mocking the waiters, apparently the vinegar was too sharp. He also said that the vinegar made him feel queasy, he also did not look very healthy this could be down to malnutrition if he’s eating from a buffet all the time. The man started to become pretty violent so my family and I went to another restaurant with lobsters which made my sisters very frantic.

Food Fight by Leon

The UK (United Kokonut) vs the USA (United Sausages of the Avocado). It started as just an argument of the Amazing Avocado and the Cool Kokonut. Some fruits say it’s all becouse of Mr. Kokonut that had demanded more kokonut trees and if he didn’t get them he would send his army with vinegar guns to melt down Amazing Avocado’s sausage army. Some also say that the Amazing Avocado screamed and shouted: “NO!! On weapon try outs the vinegar was too sharp and got banned. As soon as he said that an army jumped out and and melted every sausage in the room but the Amazing Avocado escaped and called war.

The Big Catch by Cian

It was a dull rainy day at Balbriggan harbour as John was fishing for cod. He had been out for an hour and had caught nothing so far. John was very bored and just wanted to catch five fresh cod so he could cook them for dinner. It took another two hours until he caught a fish, but it was worth it because he caught the biggest codfish in the world. No one knew what John did except me and I swore not to tell anyone as long I could have dinner at his house. John cooked the gigantic cod nicely but in my opinion the vinegar on it was too sharp.
