“Wow! I have never seen the river bed so dry”exclaimed Jack. It was July in Cork. They were sitting down on a bench looking at the river bed of the River Lee. The river runs through the centre of Cork City. The sound of cars, people and birds was all they could hear, no sound of running water at all. The river was as dry as it had ever been. News reporters from all over Ireland where there reporting. Jack and Josh were chatting and eating their lunch. Suddenly a pigeon came and stole Josh’s sandwich. That was the end of that sandwich.
Today was a very important day in history. The ‘Hypnotic 101’ is about to explore the moon. The people on the rocket were. Stacy, Roger, Harry, Mohamed, Leo and Nora. They were really exited to go to the moon.” When it just wouldn’t take off we were very worried.” warned the Captain. People made mini spaceships and gave them to people for free. Everyone was talking about it directly and on social media. The spaceship was set, flames were rising from the bottom getting ready to power up. But then something unfortunate happened, it was fake. Everyone was furious. Later on, NASA apologized after what had happened.
Yesterday, we were on a school tour to a museum that had all parts of history in it. A while after we got there I was tying my shoes and without me, the rest of the class left me not realising I was still there. The room was quite large. It had a domed roof with paintings hung on the walls. In the middle of the room there was a statue of a woman who had real clothes on her. I heard a door creak so I thought it was my friend Tim but it wasn’t so I ran to find the rest of my class.
It was a regular day and then all of a sudden a giant bee fell from the sky and then to tiny men came out to investigate it. And one said
‘Wait here i’ll get some honey and sugar for it.’
‘Okay’ said the other one.
So then he tiny man came back with stick and a bucket full of honey and sugar. And they put honey and sugar on the stick and put it in the bees mouth.
In school we always learn about the world’s history and play games to represent fun things that happened then. One time we searched for gold coins that were represented with buttons. We also learned about the viola so we learned how to write some music notes. My favourite one was when we pretended we were lost in ancient history and we had to wear clothes for the year we where lost in. I pretended I was lost in the year 1905, the clothes I wore were very funny and flowy. My least favourite one was when we had to eat the food people ate in all different countries in all different years.
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!
Bang! Ashley was really scared but knew she had to go into the cave and save her sisters Laila and Isabel, because a monster had captured them. As Ashley sneakily creeped into the cave she tripped over a rock and made a loud noise. The monster had heard it and started growling that’s when she knew she should run, grab her sister and run back home. As they were running out of the cave Laila and Isabel had told Ashley it was a prank. Ashley didn’t believe them until lots of people started running after them and showed her a video they took of it. Ashley allowed them to make a film out of it but only so she could be famous.
One day Amy and Ava were going on a morning walk with their dog, down to beautiful lake. When they got there they were amazed by the view and how clear the lake water was. After a while of looking around their dog had fallen into the water to find that it was quite deep. They had to jump into the lake to get the dog. They had seen when they were looking around that there was a beautiful waterfall at the end of the lake. When had managed to catch up with the dog they were a bit late and had just fallen down the waterfall! When they got to the end they wanted to do it again the next day they went on a walk but they wanted to leave the dog behind.
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.
One day two friends called Amy and Ava were in the zoo arguing as always. After they finished that they decided that they would spend a day in each other’s shoes. Amy had a very poor background while Ava was quite rich. As they were doing what the other usually does Ava found out that Amy stores her clothes in a box that sits under a brown chair. Amy discovered the Ava has a sky view roof and she is very good at art as she has a picture of a realistic leaf hanging over another picture of a racoon. At the end of the day the girls agreed that whenever they argue they would spend a day in each other’s shoes so they understand each others point of view.
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.
One dark, stormy night two girls were getting ready for Halloween. They were so excited to go trick or treating. Before they went to bed they heard a noise coming from outside so they went out to see what it was. Directly in front of the door was a note with a clue trial. The girls decided to do it, the first clue led them to a dark cave. When they arrived at the cave there was a clown staring at them. The girls let out a scream. The deafening scream echoed through the cold night and the girls ran…

My life is empty,
I live nowhere and everywhere,
I beg and beg,
I get donations,
I’m scared as I hear the deafening screams echoed through the cold night.
I’m innocent and guilty,
You see me sometimes,
On T.V or in person,
I need your help,
I need everyone’s help,
To stay alive,
To stay alive and have hope,
Have hope for a better future,
Or a normal future,
You know who I am,
I am poor,
I am unfortunate,
I am homeless.

One day a man named Nick was walking to work. When he was half an hour away from work, he saw a tree. He went to inspect it but when he got to the tree, he realised that the tree was made out of steel. Suddenly he found a lever so he pulled it. A door opened so he stepped in side. When he got inside, he saw a giant vault door. He saw a big red button so he pushed it. At all of a sudden the ground started to shake the the door opened. He stepped inside and saw a…
Today my friends and I went on a FaceTime call for the whole day. While we were on call we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner together and Niamh and I had the same dinner called lasagne. Jessica and Ashley had pasta, we thought it was super funny to have the same dinner at the same time. Then it started getting late, my mam ask me if I wanted to take a walk down the beach and watch the moon rise. When we got there I was able to show the girls the view from my phone. It was amazing.
