The Archeologist by Ashley

Being an archeologist is a very cool job, you get to find gold, skeletons and other cool fossils.

I remember hearing of a man who was an archeologist who searched for gold but never found any, but never gave up, he kept digging and digging and then one day when his work colleagues told him to give up and search somewhere else, he found an ancient skeleton with the famous, lost viola! The skeleton was said to be born in 1314 B.C.

The man was awarded on this amazing discovery and even made a documentary about it.

Marks, Get Set, Go by Ashley

I have been doing athletics for six years, I love it, especially the competitions. I remember that cross-country race where it was very tense and I was so nervous, it was the final and I really wanted to place.

I remember one of the organisers shouting “Marks, Set, Go!” and we were off. It was a 2000 metres race, so I had to set a pace. I overtook three girls and now I was in fourth place so that’s when I knew I should run….FAST!

I overtook the girl who was third, but she was right behind me, I started to sprint and finished. I had placed!

The Best Walk by Ashley

I used to go on walks maybe 2 or 3 times every week, but ever since Covid-19 has started, I go on walks every day.

Yesterday I went on an amazing walk with my dog, where I went was like a beautiful forest surrounded by mountains, it also had a very nice waterfall with a lake. It sounded so calm and quiet, especially with the waterfall.

I threw the ball for my dog and it ended up in the lake, my dog dived right in and caught the ball.

When I looked at my watch I realised it was time to go, but I didn’t want to leave. I would definitely be coming here tomorrow.

The Screams by Ashley

I was in the forest with my friends, we had to stay close, we didn’t want to lose anybody.

The deafening screams echoed through the cold night, the sound was worse than when you scrape a blackboard. One of my friends had told us that coming here in the middle of the night was a bad idea, we ignored her though. It was cold and dark with only two torches to help us see in front of us.

We heard the screams again, except this time louder so we knew we were close. That’s when something ran past us, we had found it.

Who Cares What You Think?

Harriet sat at her desk looking down at the yellow piece of paper that had the letter ‘F’ circled in red pen around it. Cass slyly glanced at Harriet’s page and giggled a little, “Harriet was the one who was bragging about getting an ‘A’!” she thought to herself. “Yes!” said Laney, Cass’ best friend shouted out in glee, “I got an ‘A’!”

“Mr. Murphy! I don’t think that this is fair, I deserve way better than an ‘F’, I am an amazing, pretty young woman!” Harriet exclaimed.

Mr. Murphy’s reply was…”It doesn’t matter what you think, does it?”

The New Car by Ashley

“Finally! Dad is going to drive his new car around the corner any second now!” I said to my mam excitedly.

Suddenly I heard a car coming, “He’s here!” I shouted. But then my heart dropped……The car was so slow and it was old and rusty.

“Well?!?” My dad said happily, “What do you think?”

“It’s horrible!” I cried, “Seriously dad, I thought you said you were going to search meticulously for a red Audi.”

“Well!” My dad said trying to sound strong, “I thought you were going to be happy!!!”

“Yeah, but it is SO slow I thought you were getting an Audi!”

But then my dad walked off and I was left with my shocked mam.

The Mysterious Bike Ride by Ashley

I was on a walk one day, when I saw a dainty yellow bicycle in the distance, it was stuck in tree! I went over to it and a multitude of questions came into my head…..

How did it get there?

Was there an incident?

Who owns it?

Suddenly I could visualise what happened. There was a girl who was cycling to school but she had to turn suddenly because a car was heading straight towards her she fell off, but her bike just rolled up a tree!!

I couldn’t wait to see what happened next but then everything stopped and I was left standing in front of the yellow bicycle.

A Long Time Ago In Bethlehem by Ashley

A Long Time Ago In Bethlehem…….

A couple called Mary and Joseph just had a new baby and he was said to be the new king, his name was Jesus.

“Oh come on, Gabriel! We’re going to be late and you keep on stopping to count sheep! SHEEP!” cried an angel who was going to see the baby king.

“Well, as an angel I must count sheep because those poor shepherds always loose their sheep!”

Three kings walked by with a donkey…..”Which way to the shops?” it panted, “These three won’t keep quiet, moaning that they can’t find the shops to buy whatever Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh is!?!”

Everyone safely got to the stable and of course Gabriel tripped over a cow.

Disqualified by Ashley

It was the world 2019 food competition.

Thousands of people gathered not just to let the judges taste their food, but to watch.

The judges went around tasting foods, everybody watched nervously, hoping that the food their family, friends and themselves cooked.

There were sighs of relief and anger amongst all the people after the comments from the judges.

Finally, the judges got to the last contestant, “So, what I have cooked is a type of soup with no marmite in it.” he said nervously, “I hope you like it!”

One of the judges looked furious, “No,”; he said, “I like marmite!” he paused, “You are disqualified!”

Nobody dared argue with the judge, so that was the end of that.

My Trip to Liverpool by Ashley

For my 8th birthday I got the best birthday present ever, though my parents had a quandary about it, my mam wasn’t too sure about it but my dad persuaded her to give it to me.

When I went downstairs, there was a box on the table and when I opened it there was a red jersey in it, it was a Liverpool jersey! Then my dad said that my dad and I were going to fly over to England to watch Liverpool V Sunderland!

When we got there, we checked in at our hotel and went straight to the match.

It was an excellent game, we drew 2 although I thought Liverpool could have done better.

The Speaking Pumpkins by Ashley

There is a rumor going around saying that three pumpkins started speaking to kids!

Apparently the kids were trick or treating, when three different coloured pumpkins started moving! Eyewitnesses said that the kids shouted with fright, ‘Move out of our way pumpkins!’, when all of a sudden the orange one spoke first, saying, ‘Hey kids, we might be small and in your way, but we have feelings and you could just step over us!’. The blue and grey pumpkins agreed, ‘Yeah!’.

Could it be true or just fake news? Investigators are trying to find out, so we’ll be back for more.

Are You Scared? by Ashley

It was Halloween and my cousin and I were going to see a movie.

We got to our seats and it began….. “There once was a lady who lived right beside a dark haunted house.”

“One day a creepy doll appeared outside her house, the doll had eyes…..that moved! The lady was so scared she went to the police.”

“She told the police and they said that they would come and see it. But as she pointed to where the doll was, she saw that it was gone “It was here, I promise!” she looked furiously around the garden….”But where did it go!” she shouted. (She had a habit of shouting)”

“Sorry, but I put that doll there,” said a boy who had ran over, “this is one of my Halloween decorations!”

I looked around to see where my cousin was but she was gone! (Too scared)

The Daily Mail Newspaper by Ashley


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…..

The Baby Seagull by Ashley

I was in school on yard one day, when I saw a scruffy, fat baby seagull limping around. I noticed that one of its wings was bent down in a weird way.

I could tell that the seagull was frightened of all the people around it, but I still told the teacher about it. The teacher went over to the seagull and beckoned it over to her by showing it bread. The seagull went over to the teacher cautiously and as soon as it went over to teacher, the teacher grabbed the seagull (Gently but quickly) and checked over the seagull and tried to make it fly, when it just wouldn’t take off!!!

The teacher said that she was going to bring the seagull to the vets after work. So that was that!

Watch Out for Cyclists b Ashley

I was driving my car on the way on the way to work, when I looked in the wing mirror and saw a lady with a bright high vis jacket, on a yellow bicycle. I could see that she was desperate to get by me, I was stuck in traffic and I wasn’t moving anywhere so I thought it would be OK to just pull over for a second. As I pulled over the lady thanked me and then cycled off. But as she cycled off a man in another car started beeping at her, he pulled down his window “Move out of my way lady, the phone shop opens in 10 minutes and I want to get 2 phones, so move or else….!!!” He warned her greedily. So the lady moved out of his way shocked, and he sped off like a bullet.

The New Broken Video Game by Ashley

“What!?!” I groaned as I was shaken vigorously by someone.

“Ashley! Quick get up, get up, get up!!!” It was my brother, Liam. “Come on, my new video game for my computer just arrived. Suddenly I got pulled out of bed onto the floor. “Fine. Come on show me.” I said.

The new game was surprisingly good we were having such a good time then everything stopped.

“WHAT HAPPENED!!! What did you do Ashley, why did it stop?” My brother berated me.

“I don’t know?” I said, trying not to laugh at my frustrated brother. “Ashley! What did you do?” I said mocking my brother.

“Hold on, I’ll be back in a second.” I said.

I went down stairs to check the Wi-Fi, but there was a man fixing the wifi box.

“So that’s why the game isn’t working.” And I went to tell my brother.

The War by Ashley

I was on a walk one day in Dublin city, when I came across a statue of two men. ‘Who were these men and what are they doing,’ I thought. Suddenly I heard a voice inside my head saying ‘SNAP YOUR FINGERS TWO TIMES!!!’ I did, and then I got pulled into a world of imagination.

Five seconds later I saw the two men.

One of the men said “Oh it’s you.

And the other said “Hey I just came to give you my British flag and to say good luck.”

“Uuugghhh, fine, “ the other man said grumpily. “Here is my German flag.”

“Well, let the war begin!!!” The British man said.

“Yes. Let the war begin!!!” The German man said.

‘War!?!’ I thought ‘War? I am out of here!!!’

Mr Brown and the Griaffe

Mr Brown is a very strange man, he lives in an apartment, which is normal, although his pet is not very normal his pet is a………..GIRAFFE!!!

Mr Brown’s rooms roof is sooooooo tall so that the giraffe can stand. The giraffe is spoilt rotten it is very fat, for dinner it eats, chips with salt and for dessert, brownies and melted caramel, every day!!! The giraffe does not get cleaned at all so it is really greasy, reason being Mr Brown is really lazy.

Sometimes, Mr Brown tries to sneak the giraffe into school with him (Mr Brown is a teacher) but Ms Costello the principle always finds out.

The Monster(s) by Ashley

After hours of trying to get asleep, finally I doze off and when I wake I find myself in a forest!?!

All these questions were running through my head…….

How did I get here?

Where are my family?

Who lives here?

What lives here?

I look around me, the place is empty. I decide to walk around to see if anyone is here.

The forest was like a swamp. leaves and muck everywhere.

All of a sudden I here a strange voice, like in another language, I turn around to see a creature it was black and brown with wings like a bat.

I screamed. Thank god there’s only one I thought……. or not!!!! There was hundreds, all trying to eat me!

What will I do next, I thought………

Titanic (2) by Ashley

After 15 minutes of waiting in a huge queue, my family and I finally got to board the Titanic. The Titanic was illuminated with all the bedroom lights on and didn’t look very portable, it was that big. “How much longer in this huge line!?!” I heard a little boy ask his parents, sounding exasperated.

When we all stepped inside, we saw a huge grand staircase and marble walls. There was lots of detail on all the furniture and our bedroom was beautiful.

We had absolutely nothing to worry about, after all, people do say the Titanic is unsinkable…….or not.

The Sneak Peak – by Ashley

It is my birthday tomorrow, my mam and dad said that they already got my present.

I know where they put presents for my sisters and I, they put them in a drawer in their bedroom.

You know what? I think I might go and look in the drawer now just to see! (but don’t tell anyone)

The drawer was empty. What a surprise!

“Emmm, may I help you?” a voice came from behind me. It was my mam.

“Oh, I… er…I was just looking for -” I said getting interrupted. ”Come on go to bed now.” my mam said.

It was morning and I was getting my presents, I heard sounds from a box and when I opened it a puppy jumped out!!!

“So thats why the drawer was empty.” I thought to myself.

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 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.

No Time To Tune it by Ashley

It was the day of the school music competition and I was facing my worst rival Charlotte, she is always bragging about how great she is and is envious of my guitar.

While me and my friends were practicing our song, one of my friends Mia said “Isn’t Charlotte such a coward.” so Charlotte over heard and wandered over saying “I’ll get you back for calling me a coward, when your least expecting it.” In a crafty kind of way. After that I was very unwilling to do the competition but I knew I had to compete.

Me and my friends were starting to take our instruments out when I gave my guitar a little strum but it was completely out of tune!

“Oh, well I guess I’ll be celebrating in triumph then.” Charlotte said…….

The Horror Story by Ashley

There I was, walking down to the haunted house for a dare. I marveled at how big the mansion was.

There was a sign outside the garden but the words were washed away. I could smell something like eggs.

I carefully stepped onto the front step and knocked on the door. Suddenly the door creaked open, I hesitated for a moment then stepped inside.

The door slammed closed behind me making me jump and there was a light above me flickering and shaking vigorously.

I then saw a girl…… was the Sacred Rhianna!!!

Her hair was dark black and all in front of her face, though not a fringe. She was holding her creepy realistic doll. What was going to happen next……

The Interruption by Ashley

One day, while I was in Australia walking in a town.

I walked around this corner of abandoned apartments and I saw the most astonishing thing, loads of people where frozen in rows and they all were purple, blue, green, white, red and yellow.

A man was standing between all of them and said “Oh, hello there……Ha, You next!!!”

He pointed a weird looking stick at me and was about to say some spell when his phone rang, he answered it “Hello, not now mam I am….. a bit busy……..”

“Cut! Take 5 minute break people, 5 only” Jack said, our producer of the movie.

So we went off for five minutes.

Ruby’s Cool Room by Ashley

I love an ice-cream shop down the road from where I live. It is called Ruby’s Cool Room, it has every flavour ice-cream! I will tell you my favourite flavours to my least…

Pistachio, lime, raspberry, lemon, lavender and last butterscotch. One day I went to get some ice-cream and Ruby was gone. I remembered I was on the phone with her and she said that she was at work !?! But how could she just disappear?!? I looked at the flavours of the ice-cream and all there was, was ebony and coal!!!

I looked around and saw a man in a funny looking suit staring at me…….

The Odd Little Fish by Ashley

Last week my dad bought me a fish, it was pink with a splash of orange on it. I named her Bubbles. Pretty much a normal fish.

I got my fish a little chest for her tank, there was nothing in it, it was empty.

Well, I woke up yesterday and checked on her and saw her on a bicycle, in water flying through rings of fire!!!!!!!

I screamed and told my parents, my dad got so creeped out that he fired his slipper at bubbles.

Thanks to my dad {NOT} Bubbles’ tank flipped over!!!

I sprinted so fast over to Bubbles and quickly plopped her into a bucket of water.

Luckily the tank did not smash and I put Bubbles back in.

“Next time we’re getting a dog” my dad said, out of breath.

The Happy (?) New Year’s Eve by Ashley

My cousin has very sensitive eyes, he can’t look at very bright things.

BAM!!! another firework went off for new years eve but this time much brighter. I looked at my cousin and realised the light blinded him! We had to bring him to the hospital.

The doctor said that he would be blind all his life, and that doctors would have to do surgery on him.

When he came out of surgery, my cousin said that he could only see out of a tiny part of his eye.

“Gosh” I said “What happened to your eye?” His eye was all full of blood.

He explained what the surgeons did and from that day on I hope that, that will never happen to me.

Liar, Liar Pants on Fire!

I was putting up my Christmas tree yesterday when the room was filled with the most amazing light. My parents left the house to go shopping, so it was just me.

I found a present decoration on the tree and it was glowing so bright, that was where the light was coming from. I carefully took the ornament down, I had to grab my sun – glasses it was so bright. I peeked in then put it down on the ground and stared at it.

I heard my parents coming in I ran and told them what had happened, I lead them in to the sitting room and showed them the ornament but it disappeared it was gone.

From that day on I have been called ‘little miss liar.’
