The Attack (Week 21 Paddy 6th)

“Minion!” said a voice from the massive leather chair in the centre of the room.

“Ready the Deady Bears!”

“Yes master,” replied a whimpering voice.

There was the noise of a button being clicked and an enormous mechanical claw came down from the ceiling, holding a crate. From within that crate a scratching noise was echoing ,with the occasional grunt. The crate burst open with a splintering noise and out came… millions of adorable, plush bears.

“Gaah! Minion what have you done?! My weapons!”

“I’m not your minion. I’m FBI Agent Turncoat and you’re under arrest!”

“Dang and blast!” roared the evil villain. And that is how teddy bears came into the world.

Rise Up Brothers by Eoin; Week 18.

Day 737,444.

Another 24 hours has passed since we were frozen like statues over-looking the harbour below, emotionless, expressionless, lifeless. But the time is beckoning, the hour approaching, soon we will be free, to serve and protect our elders, and to spill the blood of anyone who opposes them. The boy, he has used the key and opened the first lock. Any day now he will push open the gate to life and motion again. For now, we will gaze at the tide and comings and goings of our seaside surroundings, and strategise our next move.

He was heading towards the tunnel which was the only way out of town. Kyle clipped another kerb and decided to slow down a bit. 10 minutes on and he was midway through the tunnel. Kyle could hear something coming towards him.Suddenly a truck came  out of nowhere. The light blinded him. He skidded off course and was heading towards the cliff edge. He tried to brake but it was too late.

Week 11. Evidence… By Darragh Q

 

Yes, finally, my first case! I immediately started looking for the murderer. Where could he be, I thought? As I read the newspaper I discovered that as he escaped from the crime scene, he stole a bike and cycled away. I decided to search the forest. I don’t know why I chose to search it, I just had a feeling there would be something interesting there. And I was right, as I strolled through the forest I could see something in the distance. When I advanced closer to the mysterious object, I could make out a bike. But the thing that shocked me was that the bike was stuck in the tree. Evidence! Finally, I thought…

THE SINKING SHIP by Nathan #WK9

I slowly walked into the swamped corridor of our sinking ship. I was down here looking for my friends that were trapped behind a huge metal door. As I reached for the handle, I wondered what was behind the door. Well there was only one way to find out, I thought. I wrenched open the door. Immediately gallons of water rushed at me like a bus. I was knocked off my feet and got swept down the corridor and forced against the wall. Suddenly something hit me. I opened my eyes and saw something horrifying, one of my friend’s motionless body. That’s when it hit me. I had to find a way out soon.

The day Someone Bought Me By Charlie Barry

The day had come! Somebody had finally bought me! Soon I would be out of this sweltering hot packet and into fresh air and light! Suddenly I heard a loud rumble and I was jolted back. I was excited as we drove around the bumpy road. So bumpy that someone dropped me and I fell out of the car. I got sick and dizzy as I flew through the air. Then my packet hit a hard surface and ripped open. I never expected things to go like this. I walked awkwardly out of the ripped packet. Then I saw these red bugs all around me. A chill went down my spine.

The bull by Noel

Once upon a time there was a farmer. The farmer had bulls , horses, goats, sheep and geese. He was quite proud of his bull. He weighed 1.5 tonnes in weight. At this time the farmer was very sick but nobody knew. One day the bull broke out chasing the horse and the sheep around the yard. A neighbour came to tell the man about the bull. When he realised he was dying he called an ambulance. The man came out the very same day. If the bull didn’t break out the man would have died. In memory of the animals three statues were built.

Week27 Soccer Shirts by Anthony

I was playing the semi final at the soccer match at 1978. I am playing with an  Italian team. Next week we  play against England.We sent our clothes to the person who washes our clothes. Finally the day had come. Our shirts were delivered back in a box. We opened the box, our shirt was black and white but it is the wrong colour! Our shirt was supposed  to be red. We have no choice to wear it. When we came out on  the field, we won! 2-1. Now we won every match! and even won the final. People says the shirts keep us winning. Until now at 2019 the shirt colour was the same.

Week 28: The Landing Pad by Michael

21st of March 2521. I buckled up my seatbelt and gave one last look at planet Earth.  My co-pilot (Ben) and I, were going on a mission to a planet called Libyacon in Andromeda. As we took off, I felt the oddly satisfying feeling of the space shuttle vibrating.

3 hours later… “We’re nearly here, Ben!”

Ben looked back at me and gave me an excited smile. As we approached the landing pad, Ben looked back at me and said, “What’s that? What happened to the landing pad?”

I hopped out of my seat and looked out. Our landing pad on the swamp was destroyed. Not only was the landing pad destroyed but the swamp was too. All of this was done by someone. Someone we don’t know.

Back To Reality By Cillian Week 28

I had to get out of this cold, damp, wretched place. Behind me was the piercing sound of this terrifying, demented creature. And to top it all off I don’t even know where I am. Am I in a new planet?Galaxy? or even a whole new universe? Wherever I am, I have to get out. Eventually, I stumbled upon a ladder. This was my only chance. The second I put my hands on the cold metal ladder, I knew something was wrong. But as I climbed up everything was turning back to normal. I could eventually hear my mother roaring at me to wake up! Was it all a dream?

Aliens By Charlie Barry

The first sign of alien life had been found and I was coming to check it out. I stepped out and was shocked to how similar this planet was to Earth. I seemed to have crash landed into a marsh land. I hopped out of my spaceship and gazed in amazement. I trudged along trying to find some form of life. I spotted some kind of a hut in the distance. I felt excited but also nervous. I glanced back at my spaceship and noticed people were in it. My heart started racing. I dashed back until suddenly a bullet hit my back. I had been shot.

kelpar 186f by Alex

The discovery of the new plane, Kelpar 186f, means that if this world were to become uninhabitable, that we have a back up planet. Kelpar is in one of the habitable zones and is the same size as our planet Earth. The surface consists of mountains and rivers.There are many islands which we can make cities on. There are a few small islands where the ground looks soft and there are remains of some sort of tree or creature. The planet is only three weeks away and we can take all 7.53 billion people too.

The Triathlon by Stephen

The Galaxy’s hardest race. On planet Zog, every 3 years a triathlon is held. This year is set to be its hardest course ever. First, there is a kilometre of swimming across a bog. Then, a 20k cycle with slopes of up to 27%. Finally, there is a cross country for 6k through a bog with tree stumps towards the finish. Only 72 people were competing ??????????. I had done well in the swimming and came out of the water ninth. In cycling [ a mixture of mountain biking, cyclo cross and road racing]I caught up to the man up front. It was him or me and there was 1 kilometre to go.

FREEDOM wk#28 by Ronan

To big people, it just looks like a small, peeled twig with a leaf attached to the top of it but to me it is my boat. I, Ant Lookup, will travel down the stream of consciousness to find nothing but pride and honour. I will put all my effort into sailing my boat down the long stream nobody has travelled before. People have tried but have not succeeded. I will do more than travel down but I will walk back up along the side. I was ready, ready as I will ever be. Just as I sat on the boat I heard a cawing sound. The word went down my spine like an icy finger… birds.

All Over… By Darragh.Wk.28

I stood there looking at the aftermath of the disaster. The trees had been burnt, all the houses had been demolished and the land was ruined. How dare they come to our planet and do this! A tear trickled down my eye as I remembered my family and friends. Just then the ground shook from underneath me, causing me to stumble into the boggy land. As I regained my balance, I heard a vicious growl from behind me. A small, deadly looking creature stood before me. Without thinking I ran, but that was when I realised that I was stuck in the bog. It was all over.

week 28 Dominic The Planet

3 years later, we have finally landed on the new planet. When I arrived I checked if the oxygen was fine and it was. When I came out, I saw a big puddle of blood. I was terrified and then I saw a zombie chasing me. When I ran , a ship started going after me. When I got in, I launched the rocket at full throttle. When I was at space, I launched a missile at the ship. Then it was the end.

ALIENS! Week 28 By Killian. M

Squelch!I slowly got off the rocket and stepped on to the marshy ground . All seemed tranquil. I took another step but as soon as my foot touched the mud, creatures with pale faces and tentacles rose out of the swamp. I tried to trudge back to the ship but the creatures grabbed my legs and I slipped into the freezing mud. The monsters advanced on me, their cold, slimy tentacles stretching out. One was under the mud and started dragging me in. Suddenly, there was a blinding flash of light…

Week 28 by Alan The Walk

Joe was taking a walk in the park and suddenly he heard a really strange noise in the trees.  Joe decided to walk though the woods. As he was walking he scouted the area and there was nothing to see except trees and little puddles. A few moments later he saw this strange looking place. It looked like it burned down. Some creature jumped in front of him.  Joe got terrified and ran away from the creature.  He went home, told his parents and never came back to that weird place again.


Men in Black,Week 25 by Eoin.

The door’s hinges opened reluctantly, creaking like an old woman’s joints. The black and not-so-white-anymore checked floor was coated in a thick layer of dust and grime. Massive oak stairs in need of vanishing had become riddled with gaping holes. I glanced over at a sign reading, “Candy Bar.”

“Fat chance of getting so much as a square of chocolate from there,” I muttered, dejected and underwhelmed by the place that looked so grand and magnificent from the outside, like Hogwarts or the like. I turned towards the door to be on my way when I noticed figures in jet black, hooded cloaks blocking my path. Suddenly a hand gripped my shoulder. An icy chill ran down my spine…

 

An Awful Day By Cillian Week 26

It was just a normal, wretched, dreadful Monday morning in school. I thought everything would be fine when the morning passed but I was very, very wrong. After maths we went to PE, so that wasn’t too bad but the day just kept getting worse. Andrew, the school bully, was giving everyone trouble and I was no exception. After a while I confronted him and I really wish I hadn’t because he and all his ‘friends’ did was laugh at me. I was so  cross that I went into the gym to hit the punch bag.

The Bullets By Charlie wk. 26

I was so cross that I slammed my gun on the ground. All the ammunition scattered across the floor. All of our squadron had been tricked. We looked at each other with fright and confusion. For all we knew the enemy forces could be waiting outside for us. We walked outside cautiously. We looked around sharply. We jogged in zig zags to avoid being shot. But suddenly a bullet flew past us. We all dived on the sand -covered rocky surface. We couldn’t see a man or a gun in sight. All we saw were the vast desert plains. I heard countless bullets again and again. My heart raced and I hoped for the best….

The Punch wk26 by Dara

One day I was at home and I was just sitting down on my couch watching t.v. And then my brother came in and took the remote for the T.V. I was so mad that I punched him in the face and he got a nose bleed. So we were fighting for so long, we stayed up until 5am in the morning. THE END

Week 26: Isolated by Michael

Here I am, stuck in the middle of nowhere. My expedition team are well gone by now. But that’s not what frustrates me. When my expedition team stopped here for some food, I wandered off looking for rare animals. By the time I came back, everyone was gone. I was so angry that I was about to give up and just live on this island forever. But now I have some hope. Yesterday I saw an oil tanker ship in the distance. For now, I will have to stay here and plan my next move to get out of here.

DON’T DO IT wk#26 by Ronan

We were running behind time. The traffic would have already built up. My alarm didn’t go off (or I just slept through it).  I was the one who wanted to go but Dad had to drive me. But the most devastating event happened. We couldn’t get past the train tracks and we were first in line. A vein was popping out from Dad’s forehead and he was grinding his teeth. I was also cross. I was so cross that I was thinking of skipping over the tracks. But dad must’ve known what I was thinking of doing because he locked the door.

AAAAAHHHHHH! By Killian M Week 26

I had just woken up and I already knew that it was a bad day.  I had got out of bed and stubbed my toe on a loose floorboard, then bounced around on one foot and banged my head against my cupboard door. My little brother came running into the room holding my Cozmo and threw it on the ground. I was so cross I’m pretty sure you could see steam coming out of my ears. And to make matters worse I tripped on the last step of the stairs and landed on my dog. Why does it have to happen to me?!

100 word challenge week 26 “The Dream” by Noel

One day I woke up happy as could be. The birds were singing and the sun was splitting the stones outside. I jumped out of bed and changed into my clothes. When I ran to the door it was locked. That’s when I remembered I was grounded for breaking the vase in the kitchen with a football. I peaked through the keyhole as I heard muffled noises outside. I saw mum packing stuff  such as clothes and old shoes from Sarah’s room into a bag. I could make out the letters C-H-?-?-?-T-?  S-?-O-? on the bag. When she passed my room to the games room, I realised the writing said CHARITY SHOP. When I saw my game station being packed into the bag, I was so cross that I screamed, waking myself up from a horrible dream.

The Match That I’ll Never Forget. Shane week 26

It was the quarter final and I was in midfield [my main position]. I couldn’t wait to get started. We were against one of the worst teams in the division and we were so confident that we would win. We were about to start when a fight broke out. It was my best friend and another kid from the opposite team. We all went in to try and calm them down but they wouldn’t stop. Eventually the ref came in and called the match off. I was so cross the I could have nearly blown a fuse but being angry wasn’t going to help so I went and bought an ice cream to calm down.

The Cycling Race wk 26 by Craig

Yesterday I was at a cycling race. It was three laps of the Velo Park in Kanturk. I was first for the whole race. Suddenly, I got a cramp and I started slowing down but the race was nearly over. I could make it, I thought. The last stretch go.  My trainer said it was a photo finish. Sadly, Joe had beaten me by an inch. I was so cross that I punched my handlebars multiple times and cracked my speedometer. What made me most mad was that my Mom said, “Better luck next time, pet.”

Finale by David week 26

Today we played a soccer game. Not just any soccer game . But a completely unfair one. It was the Cork County Final. The referee was not doing any good deed for us. When we had a corner he said it was a goal kick. And how dirty was the other team? We should’ve had about fifteen penalties. They were offside about 1 MILLION TIMES. The referee gave us 3 red cards and 5 warnings. But we had the smoothest tackles ever. I  was so cross that  I nearly went to the referee and I nearly did a bad thing… Never would I ever play a soccer game again.

The Object… By Darragh

I was so cross that I stormed out of the house, slamming the door behind me. I decided to go for a walk, I had to get away from the scene. As I began to walk down the road, my dad’s car shot past me. Immediately, I rang him to find out what was going on. But he said he didn’t take the car out for a drive. Without thinking, I darted after our bright red car. Not knowing what I was doing, I started shouting after our car. Just then, the figure driving it jumped out and pointed something at me. It took me two seconds to notice what it was…

Week 26 Bad Day by Alan

I was having an amazing day one Wednesday and my friend  Bob went with me on a walk to the park. I was really excited about my new bike at home. Everything was going great until my mum called me and said she couldn’t get the bike today and that she could get it next week. I was mad but it was okay. Then my friend Bob knocked my ice cream out of my hands. I had bought it for myself and I was so cross that I ran away from him and went to the woods and stayed there.

Pipped At The Post by Eoin Week 26.

We were nearly there, on the edge of winning the glorious national championship. Up by 2 points with 20 seconds to go, I could picture the trophy raised aloft  above my head. Their point guard ran hastily up the court with the ball  and passed it to his teammate in the far corner. 10 seconds. Watching, it was like slow motion: he jumped, released the ball on what was to be a game-defining shot and landed. The ball floated through the air and fell into… the basket as the buzzer sounded. I was so cross that I could swear there was smoke billowing from my ears. I felt like slamming the ball into the other coach’s face. But I just looked on, forlornly, at what could have been.

DIARY FRIDAY 25TH OF APRIL. by Nathan wk 26

I heard my mom call from downstairs to go and say sorry to my little brother for giving out to him. I knew I had to do it or else she would keep nagging me to do it. I put down the pillow I had been punching for the past hour or so. I looked at all the feathers that were on my bed from the pillow and made up my mind that I would tidy it when I came back up. The reason I gave out to him was that he wouldn’t  give me a turn on the XBOX and I was so cross that I pushed him and stormed up the stairs. Now I`m going  down to say sorry. I hope he will accept my apology.

 

Troublemakers By Cillian Week 25

Once upon a time two boys, Tayto and Cadbury, were running away from home in search of a new life. On their adventure, they brought their horse, Tadhg. Along the way they slept on hills, under hedges and even traveled on cargo trains! But one night they became very hungry. So they decided to go to a town called Palace Town. After everyone had left the local cinema Tayto, Tadhg and Cadbury sneaked their way up to the the back door. They got their food and turned on the movie after pressing every button. But what they didn’t know was that when they turned on the movie, they turned on the front lights as well! They were doomed!

The Raid By Charlie week 25

My family and I walked in through the door and into the theatre. We had saved all our hard -earned money to go to the show. I walked up the red carpet. I felt like a king doing so. I entered the show room and was amazed by the atmosphere. But as the show started a man rushed in shouting, “We’re getting raided!”

We all looked at each other is disbelief. My older brother had described the raiders as aggressive with swords. He told them to  clear anything in their way. My heart raced as we sprinted hastily outside. I heard shouting and screaming. I tried not to think what was happening to everyone inside.

The Fire by Sean 6th Class week 25

There I was,standing in the middle of the screaming crowd. I had got such a shock that I just froze. There was smoke around me and what looked like flames on the stairs. I had to get to the door fast before I passed out but I couldn’t see through the vast amount of smoke. I just felt myself getting weaker and weaker. Finally, I just ran and hoped that there would be a door,but there wasn’t.

Week 25: The Building by Michael

This was the day I’d been waiting for. I had finally been granted permission by the mayor to have a look at the biggest building in town. Some people say it was a church before, some say a theatre. Nobody knows.

As I stepped inside I took a look around. It was cold, dark and damp inside. I walked down a broad stairway that led me into a lobby or hall. To my left I saw a stand which said, ‘ Candy Bar’.  This was my chance. I could check how old the chalk was and reveal how old this building was. I pulled out my equipment and started working on the writing.  I heard my machine beep I looked at it. It said 135 years old.
