The boy in the striped pyjamas by david

My name is Shmuel. I am a Jewish boy that isn’t loved that much. I just have to do jobs all day that make my hands sweat. I think that I’m a slave, pretty much.

One day that I thought would be the same as every other day, I saw a boy at the other side of the fence. I didn’t know if it was a good idea to go or not as it was supposed to be dangerous being around those people. But I went over anyway. I just needed to make a friend, someone to talk to. Straight away, he just started to ask a million questions. This happened for days and days. That went to weeks, and then months. And just like that, we were closer  than best friends. He was somebody I could trust.

Then one day he told me about his family. I didn’t like the sound of his father, the Commandant. I was starting to think I should get out of his way and get back to my  old life. Then he asked me if I wanted to come to the other side. It was a risk that I would have to take . I had never been out of this dreadful,sandy land but I could now. So that day was spent digging a hole. And as soon as was possible, I was on the other side. But Bruno’s father caught me…

The Atlantic by David week 23

When the storm came everyone was worried . But I kept hearing the strange noise that wasn’t the storm. I went out as careful as ever only to find a dog with his leg caught in barbwire. I knew I had to do something. So I went to the pavement right by the edge of the cliff. The dog could get blown off  at any time. I got to the dog in time but his paw slid out. There was a red ladder but before I could do anything, the wind picked back up. I was swept off. Sinking into the Atlantic Ocean. I saw so many golden coins underwater. The storm calmed and I was had  the luckiest escape of my life. The dog was safe and sound.

Lost by David L

I started to it was feel ill-fated but still I had to keep faith. I was Tom’s  best friend for 3 years. Unpredictably and out of nowhere, I slipped out of his arms when he was sleeping. I was determined to fight on. I knew I had to find my way back to the loyal, loving toddler that I belonged to. After a few desperately hard hours of finding my way, I saw the nasty broken sign showing ‘Kemswerth’ on it . So I knew I was close. Minutes later, I came across my estate. I went for a  peak to see the house I lived in. When I approached the door, I knocked and then acted like a normal teddy bear.I was back home…

Invasion by David Lehane week 20.

I  was trapped inside my mansion. There was just a little hole that a small child could get through. A big house invasion  was happening. They didn’t know where my family and I were hiding. This was a good thing. But it wasn’t safe sitting in my son’s room with the door blocked off and a hole through the window. Suddenly, I heard this extremely loud noise. I looked behind to see my phone ringing. It was completely out of tune. I could hear the burglars coming. The panic room wasn’t far away. I smashed the window. My family hopped out. We got to the panic room but the doors were closing slowly when…

Shrunk by David L Week 19.

The date was Wednesday the 6th of September 2078 and humanity still existed. But right then I was on my way to the robotic doctor as I was feeling very sick. I was given an injection. The next day I woke up. I looked in the mirror to see what my fringe was like. I looked like a rock star. Eggs were in my fridge. My sofa was purple and now it’s black. My lights were flickering. And that’s when I knew something was up. I opened my bathroom door to go in. I came out soaked. My bathroom was flooded with water..

But how…? week 17 by David L

I couldn’t feel my legs. All I saw, when I glanced up, was my brother lying on the floor. I was terror-stricken. My mother was in this plane too.I turned my head to see her in her seat. Her seat belt was choking her. Her neck was all purple. But my brother was more damaged than my mother. I had to keep one of them alive. I turned over to my brother as quickly as I could, desperately trying to get to him. I suddenly felt hollow and dizzy. Well, it was all coming from tough, disturbing, bizarre scene around me. BUT HE AWOKE. I was so thankful. I turned my attention to my mother only to see nothing .But how could she just disappear…?

ROBBERY by David Lehane week 17

I was riding on my bicycle when I heard what sounded like a pistol that had been fired.So I went over to check it out. I was behind the wall across the road from what was happening. I peeked out from behind the wall to see a house robbery. There were these three guys, dressed up in ripped clothes. They had black masks on. After about five minutes of thinking should I get involved or walk away. I decided to help. I was making my way over through the empty parking spots. I saw a little girl wearing pink. I saw bubbles of water slide down the stairs. And a man in red coming towards me…

The Bomber by David Lehane Week 16

It was the day I never forgot, the day we took down the suicide bomber. Unfortunately we could only save the people that didn’t want to die. The suicide bomber knew he lost his game. So he decided to end his life that day. I remember going into that hotel in New York City and seeing four dead bodies lying on the floor. I knew where that dreadful, sad and vicious man was. He was on the 74th floor. We had to get up there before anyone else got injured. When we got up to the 74th floor, we found him just like that. But he was near the biggest open window in the hotel. He didn’t shoot, he jumped….

The Christmas Dream by David L week 14

So I was just sitting on the sofa . It was the 17th of December and it was nearly Christmas time again . I was probably the most excited kid in town waiting for Christmas to come . There I was,staring at the wall with my blue eyes and then turning over to see the holly sticking all over the tree. And of course I’d never miss the beautiful blue baubles hanging off the tree. I looked under the Christmas tree to find some of my Christmas gifts. Most of them were from my mother. I wanted to open them but there are rules. One of them is to never open a present before Christmas Day.


100wc by David Lehane Week 13

So I had just woken up to find my friends and myself in a desert. It was the Sahara Desert. How the hell did my friends and I end up all the way over in the Sahara Desert? I knew this journey would most likely be ill-fated. It was very complex for my friends to understand but the fact was that we were stranded in a desert. I wanted to be meticulous about planning our rescue but they were exhausted and didn’t want to attempt anything. Then thoughts flooding came in. Where will we find water so we don’t dry out and die…

100wc by David Lehane Week 9

It was a Saturday night and I was the caretaker cleaning up in the school. Suddenly I heard a noise coming from one of the classrooms .I was stricken with fear. I opened the door to take a glance. I didn’t see much until I turned around and BOOM…All I could see was a blurry face right over me. It was so unpredictable . I got a punch to the face. I thought I was losing consciousness. But I had to get up and run. I wondered what was behind the door. Who was it? I wanted to  fight back but I had to preserve my energy to sprint. I tried to run. But a gun was pushed against my face…..

100wc by David l

It was a nice peaceful Friday night. My family and I were just relaxing. Dad on the couch watching the television. Mom in  the warm bath. Jake out the back with his friends. And I was on my iPad in my bedroom. So silent until Jake roars MOM GET OUT OF THE BATH.

And she did but she got out for nothing. He said he slipped but he didn’t. In fact nothing happened. Jake was crazy. He was also colour blind. And he said he saw me as an orange person. So he just danced for a minute straight until Mom said she has chocolate. Jake liked boxing and he was good at it. But also  boxed clumsily. He is a good brother.

100wc by David l

So there I was, walking my way to school. My teacher passed by and asked me if I wanted a lift so I remembered my manners and got into the car. Minutes had passed when we finally got to school. So the day had passed by and we went onto the English test. We had twenty words to spell. The hardest for me was alligator.It tricks me with the two “l”s. Then maths test was very hard with loads of tricky questions. So we were in the middle of the test when our janitor bursts in to get a tiny spider. He climbed up on a chair. And just left after. So school came to an end and I looked over at Alex my friend and his face had gone a mauve color. He threw up…



Week 29 : Creepy night by David

I was walking through the misty wind on my way to my best friend’s house. It was seven thirty at night.The dark sky was turning from black to crimson every few minutes. It was a really scary night. But I had to do it if I wanted to meet my friend at his house.

And so I had come to the scariest point when I had to cross the graveyard. So I saw my grandfathers grave as I walked past.I  came to the end of the graveyard when some man shone his headlights at my face … offering a ride to my friends house.

I said no and ran…..







The Ugly Monster week28 by Alan

I was just walking and I just saw him. I don’t knowwhy  I freaked out. I thought to tell my friend Jonn.y I also told my mom and dad. It looked like a half wooden dude eating a tree to have more body made from wood. I took photos of it. Suddenly it just decided to chase me and Jonny. We got chased for about 3 mins.Then we finally lost that weird ugly monster. And we looked around but there was no foot step or sign of him which was good. We found our way home and Jonny went to my house and I never want to see that thing.
