International Day of Peace

Check out our stories on our class blog for this week’s 100 Word Challenge. The prompt was about making peace. We wrote about Dance Off’s, Intergalactic Wars , Jelly Guns and lots more.

The Dance Off – by Mia G

A long long long  time ago .There  was a fight . Now this fight was a bit weird . I’ll tell you what happened .  There was a  school named St Molaga’s  school.  The principal wanted to do a dance  off with St George’s school . Both of the principals  wanted to do it . One day it happened . The students were trying to do a dance as a class  . Eventually the day came and both schools were very good at dancing . Both schools met at the St Molaga’s school hall . The dance off was about to start .Then as the both schools met, they all started to argue with each other . They kept talking about who was better . At last  Ms Brennock’s class said ”we say that every one make peace now ” . And it worked .

The War by Evan

…A Bomb had landed right in the middle of the trenches…

Running around the corner with all my equipment I saw a skinny British solider hopping down into an empty trench apart from all the other dead German soldiers. The British solider had been taking out his bayonet while I was taking out my shovel. I threw it as hard as I could. It hit the soldier right in the shoulder and he collapsed dead. I knew the bomb would explode soon. I warned the army men in the next trench but they just laughed. The bomb exploded, and as I lay on the floor wounded, I imagined what it would be like to have all I could see in the kingdom of God and peace.

A Good or a Bad Day – by Oliwia

“Oliwia?” Hayley shouted while running up to me,
“What do you want Hayley?“I nicely asked,
“Do you now what a dream is?, I do!”,
“Mmm, no I don’t, but what is it?”,
“It when you go to bed and you think about something!”,
“Okay Hayley. Oh, and——I have to go home, All right?”,
“Yea, All right”,
I went home and I imagined what it would be like to have all I could see in my own own dream. A few weeks later I had a dream about my family having a fight, I couldn’t beilive that so I quickly woke up and”Houhouhou” I started to…………


Special Showcase for Daniel

Congratulations to Daniel, he has been awarded a Special Showcase for his writing. The prompt was a to include the words …A whistle blew and everyone disappeared…

This is Daniel’s winning story. Well done Daniel.

It was Saturday I was playing a hurling match. My team were losing. The other team just kept on scoring. A whistle blew and everyone disappeared. It was half time. My coach decided to make some changes, he decided to put me in full forward. After the restart of the match it was me who kept scoring I had scored 2 goals and 4 points. With 1 minute remaining my team were still losing by 1 point. Just then we got awarded a free. My coach told me to take it. I lifted it and struck it straight into the net. We had won and I was the hero.

Match days, Ordinary days and holidays.

The Match – by Evan

One day before a match in a rich players house a violin was playing just after Mister M. Swept had eaten his snack before he left to the away game.
Mr. Swept: “Is the airplane ready to take me to France for the game against Sweden?”
Servant: “Yes, my master.”
Mr. Swept: “Good, get me my tablet.”
Servant: “Yes master.”
When Mr. Swept arrived he got a bus with his team and they got into their match kits. As he was lining up in the tunnel, he looked at Sweden in their yellow jerseys.

In the last minute McGeady crosses it into Swept who takes it on his chest and shoots! Goaaaaaaaal! 1-0 to Ireland.

Surprise Holiday by Ryan

Mum told me that we were going on an airplane.  I was so excited.  She said we were off to Spain.  I couldn’t wait.  When we arrived at the hotel, and unpacked, we went out for dinner.  After we had eaten we went for a walk and there was lots to see.  There was a man wearing and yellow and red suit playing the violin for money.  There was another man making things out of sand.  He swept the sand in different directions and he made a seal and an elephant out of sand.  It was amazing to see.

School Tour by Josh

It was my school tour and we just arrived at Airplane the all you can eat restaurant, it was exactly like a real plane. The seats were blue and yellow and the windows were really small. Everyone was looking out the little windows because their was a terrible storm. We had just eaten our food and a big gust of wind swept through the restaurant and knocked the violin player over and the manager’s pants down.
“Who farted?” I said.
” Not me” everyone said.
The restaurant was wrecked and the managers face went bright red with embarrassment. We left the restaurant and everyone said it was the best school tour ever.

The Owl and the Pussycat

We learned the famous poem by Edward Lear, and then we created some artwork based on the poem. We used lots of different pieces of fabric.

The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat:
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“0 lovely Pussy, 0 Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
         You are,
         You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”

Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing!
Oh! let us be married; too long we have tarried,
But what shall we do for a ring?”
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the bong-tree grows;
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood,
With a ring at the end of his nose,
          His nose,
          His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

“Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?” Said the Piggy, “I will.”
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
              The moon,
              The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

…as the flame flickered and then went out…..

Please drop by our class blog and leave us a comment. The prompt this week was …as the flame flickered and then went out…..

Here are just three of our stories.

Big Big Trouble – by Wonder

I came home with a lighter I got from Dunnes Stores. I started playing with my lighter. I put it on my paper and my paper burned. I kept on getting paper and burning it. I got strong paper and it didn’t burn. Instead fire went everywhere. There was a weird green flame at the back. I was trying to catch the green flame. But as the flame flickered and then went out it went downstairs to the sitting room.
“What’s this?“said my mum curiously.
She came up to my room.
” Where did this fire come from?” said mum to me.

Looks like I’m in BIG trouble.

Yellowstone – by Josh

We went on a camping trip of a lifetime. Deep into the wilderness of Yellowstone National Park. I had the greatest adventure of my life. We went canoeing in the rivers, caught fish and cooked it but it didn’t taste too good!! We sat by the camp fire at night and told stories. On our last night it rained really heavily. My dad had to light the fire inside our tent. It was a really bad idea, the tent caught fire and as the flame flickered and then went out we had no cover and all around us in the bushes we could see big orange luminous eyes watching us getting closer…

The Burning School  – by Alex

It was Monday morning. We were out on yard. It was the best day ever because our teacher was out and she forgot to give us work. The teacher who was splitting us up, to go to different classes, gave us barely any work. Suddenly, the fire alarm went off, every one though it was a drill, but it wasn’t. The teachers ran out with their roll calls and told us to line-up. Some stupid boys were having a farting contest. A while later as the last flame flickered and went out the children where very happy. “HALF DAY FOR US” they said.
