the boy in the striped pyjamas

As I was taken into the camp, I thought that I was going to be able to play  with my new best friend Shmuel. I went into the camp and saw a lot of people wearing the same kind of clothes. I wondered if I would get to wear the same clothes. I was taken into the room and was ordered to put them on. So I put them on and I was taken out again. This was very different to what I thought it would be like. I finally spotted Shmuel and ran over to him and gave him a big hug. I asked him what it was like in here and he told me every thing. After hearing what he said, I was way more conscious about the horror of this place. Shmuel and I had to get out and fast.

We talked over where we used to talk before. Only this time we were on the same side of the fence. We thought that maybe if we stayed where we were we might be able to sneak out at night. We had started to dig our way under the fence when we saw a light heading our way. We quickly ran underneath one of the huts. And then the alarms went off. Now was our time to escape.

The Day by Sean week 22

It was a long day and we were all tired from the waterpark we went to but we were hungry. We stopped at a chipper near our local town to eat something. I got chicken goujons and chips and a little bit of vinegar sprinkled over them. We got our food and as soon as I put that chip in my mouth I could feel that the vinegar was too sharp. We immediately left and never thought of going back there again. On the way home we stopped at a local chipper and had a nice meal with no vinegar.

The Missing Bear by Sean O S week 21

Mission to find the missing teddy bear. It was last sighted outside a petrol station in a girl’s hands and all of a sudden it was gone. She said she didn’t feel it drop out of her hands. We were pretty clueless as to where it could be gone so we just sent a few of our staff out to search for it. They looked down all the alleys and in most bins but there was no sign at all. One person thought that they had seen it over by a corner shop so they contacted our agency. We immediately set out to solve this mystery. We got to the area where it was last seen and there it was. We returned it to the girl and she was delighted. We had solved our mystery.

Sing by Sean week 20

Today I was going to see my sister sing. Before we went, we had to collect my brother from his friend’s house. Then we headed to Cork City. She was quietly reading to herself on the way up. When we got there she was worried. We went to the seats and let her get ready to sing. 10 minutes later everyone was ready. She got out on to the stage and started to sing but it was completely out of tune.

The Invention By Sean week 16

Today I was going to finish my invention. I was trying to make bikes faster. I was going to fire pink bubbles out of the bicycle. Also when it was empty I would just pull a string so the can would tip and it would be done. So I took it to the competition and everyone loved it. I got second place . My family were delighted. Could I have come up with the best way to travel?

The Escape Week 16 by Sean

Today was the day I escaped. I was going to escape from prison. I had been working on making a hole into the vents for a few months now and it was finally done. I slowly crept into the small tunnel and then into the vents. As I got to the outside vents I could see the guards on patrol around the prison. When the guard wasn’t looking, I decided to run for the ladder up to the watch tower. I got to the ladder and crept up it slowly making sure no one could hear me. I got to the top of the wall and saw that no one was on  it so I scuttled across the wall and into the watch tower where I grabbed the light and shone it into the guard’s eyes below. The light blinded him so I sprinted as fast as I could down the ladder to the main gate and hot wired a police car and then drove as fast as I could.

The Pop by Sean O S Week 14

It was Christmas. We put up the tree and it looked lovely. We had our breakfast and devoured it. We put up all of the decorations but one decoration in particular caught my eye. It was a small present. I hung it on the tree and looked at  it closely.


A piece of holly had flew out and pricked my nose. 5 berries also came out and one flew up my nose. We all started laughing

The Race Week 13 Seán O’S

We had to do it. We had got so far and couldn’t give up now. But they were all exhausted, and I was too. It was the last 30 second stretch. Only a few meters away and I tripped. At least another 6 people fell over me. After all of them getting off me I finally got up and crossed the finish line. After the race we got a sheet that had our place in the race. I checked it and it said 92\100. I wasn’t too happy because I was probably coming like 10th. But that rock messed it all up.

The Zoo by Sean Week 10

We were going to the zoo. I was delighted . It was in Dublin, almost 3 hours away. When we got there we got our tickets and entered. The first thing we saw was the big pretty yellow- eyed gorilla. The man told us that they could only put one in there because if they put two in there they could start a fight. When he saw my sister’s red shirt he started running towards the bricks on the wall. He smashed through the bricks and my life flashed before my eyes.

The Australian Leprechaun by Stephen Week 9

I wandered down towards the rainbow house, planning in my head what to say. Legend has it that if you charm the person who lives there that he or she will give you a wish. My plan was to charm the person there and then ask for a genie. I wondered what was behind the door as I approached it. I rang the doorbell and three seconds later the door opened. There was nobody there. I looked down and there it was… a leprechaun.

We looked at each other for a few seconds before he said one word: “G’day.”

I ran away from the house and never went near it again.

The Bomb Week 9 by Sean

We were getting on the plane. Our destination was Florida. 20 minutes into the flight I said to my mom that I was going to the bathroom and she said that that was fine but I was really going downstairs because on my way into the plane I saw a window at the bottom of the plane. I went down the long stairs. When I got to the bottom of the stairs there was a door. I wondered what was behind the door. I struggled to open it but I eventually did. I saw a time bomb. It said 30 seconds.


A Loveliness of ladybirds by Seán week 7

It was dark. I was on my way home from a long day’s work. I only lived 20 minutes from my work. I lived in the middle of nowhere. Every day when I was walking home I would cross the bridge over the river. As I was doing it today I saw the most frightening amount of ladybirds crossing the bridge. I was extremely scared. I ran for my life. The were trailing me. I gradually got away from them. What would I do?

I Thought I Was Dead

I woke up and it was the day of the circus.I got dressed and headed there. I was the big clumsy clown with the big orange shoes. My best friend was a fighter. He was fighting a kangaroo. My turn was up now. I clumsily made my way up onto the stage. I walked out and someone screamed from the crowd “BATH BATH” coming down on me. When it hit me I barely felt anything. I threw it off me and danced a jig for the rest of my part.

Nowhere To Go by Seán

No house, no food, no water. Just walking through the wood. It reminded me of a time when I was a young boy. Just like my mother said, ” If you don’t go to school, you wont get a job and then you’ll have nothing.” Thinking back now I should have just gone to school instead of skipping most of my classes. Even if I was in class I wouldn’t listen. I would just keep talking until my teacher caught me. And when he would turn around I’d just start talking again. What would I do?

Sean 6th class:

Todd and I woke up after our long night’s sleep. We had to go hunting today before the snow came. We got our boots and all our other gear on and set out. The first animal of the day was a rabbit. It was really no good to fill our stomachs. We saw a ram grazing in a big field. I aimed down the scopes of my rifle and took a shot. We headed back to our cabin and cooked the ram. The next morning, more snow everywhere . I glanced to my right and saw three statues less than 200 metres away. I walked over and BOOM, I heard a shot. It turned out that they were put there overnight as a trap. Someone must have known I would be there.

A Not So Pleasant Trip by Sean o S wk3

My  friend and I were on our way to the mountain near our house. We were on our way up the mountain when we heard a weird sound coming from the engine. I got out of the car and opened the hood. The battery wire was cut. This was no accident , I thought to myself. I got back to the car and tried my best to move it forwards but it seemed to be going backwards. That’s when we saw the crooks that cut it.

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.
