Another Special Showcase!

special showcase snipWe are delighted again this week to have another Special Showcase in our class. This week  Rachel B. won the award. This is a second award for Rachel!  There were over 1,300 entries into the 100 Word Challenge this week. Well done Rachel,  great work.

This is Rachel’s entry:

I ran and ran, birds swooping and howling above me. Suddenly I felt a violent thug on my shirt. All of a sudden I felt myself being lifted up into the air by my red hair. I was lifted above all the trees and the clouds until all I could see was dots.
Finally I was dropped onto a stump of a tree. I looked up, scared of what I might see. Seeing a giant bird, made me feel dizzy. I fell. The bird made me feel so small. I felt like one of the lego pieces my little brother used to play with.
All of a sudden the sky started spinning….

A Special Showcase – Congratulations Grace

This is Grace’s entry for last week’s 100 word challenge. The prompt was to re-write a fairy story.

The story is called, ‘Three Mexican Bears, Coco Pops and A New Fur Coat.’

Ooh, let’s go in this house!”, said Alejandra the bear.
 So they walked in.
 “Ooh look! Three bowls of coco pops” said Jose.
 “Bro let’s eat it.” said Pedro.
 So the Mexican bears went in and started eating it.
“What the….why are there three bears eating my coco pops. Oh no, no no no no! Shoo! Get out! My coco pops NOT yours!” exclaimed a VERY angry Goldilocks.
 “Bro, I think we should get going…” whispered Pedro to Jose.
 “Yeah bro, let’s go.” So Jose and Pedro ran out leaving Alejandra.
“Well, well well. Look what we have here..”
 Long story short, Goldilocks got a new fur coat…

Bad Idea by Stephen W.

Goldilocks was an evil partier.  She went from house to house planning parties in order to wreck the home.  One day she was wandering through the woods and she spotted  a small cottage.  It looked like a good place for a party.

She couldn’t see any activity inside so she stepped closer. Once she was sure it was empty she bashed in the door.  She set up a disco, drinks, some music, food and a phone.  She called up all of her friends and they came over.  When the party was in full swing, a bear busted the door open and stormed in.

That night the bear had a barbecue and Goldilocks never partied ever again.

Midnight Falls – by Rachel B

The old castle bell struck midnight
Out jumped Cinderella, her face full of fright
She bounded downstairs, the Prince on her tail
Attempting a jump that turned into a fail
She wobbled she wibbled, fell flat on her face
Spilling red blood all over the place

She had one tooth left, it hanging by a thread
The Prince went white then went red
‘This isn’t my love!’ shouted the Prince in rage
‘Look her up’, he demanded
‘Into a cage!’
While Cinderella sat in her prison room
The Prince went off and found a groom
Soon the castle was filled with laughter
As for Cinderella her story never came close to happy ever after……..

Cinderella by Ava B

The clock struck midnight, Cinderella gasped and ran to the door and down the stairs. She did not look and she did not see the car coming, there was a huge bang and then silence.

Meanwhile Prince Charming was dancing with one of the ugly sisters, although she was not pretty, she loved zombie movies and the prince was impressed.

Cinderella woke up in hospital with a broken leg and a sore head and promised to learn the Green Cross Code.

The prince and the ugly sister got married and lived happily ever after watching zombie movies and eating nachos.

Beautiful Places on My Island

Last week, on Wednesday,  we took part in a Google Hangout with schools in Germany, North American (Ohio and Pennsylvania) and South American (Brazil).

We had prepared presentations on various beautiful places in Ireland, including Newgrange, The Giant’s Causeway and the Cliffs of Moher.

The German class presented about Islands around Germany. They presented their projects in English.
