Looking back, I remember…. by Jamison, Year 7

“Looking back, I remember”, said Bob, “I remember that we went to the shops and bought some ice-cubes because it was hot. I asked you if you had something to carry them in and you told me that you didn’t, even though I informed you to bring the cooler bag. The ice was beginning to melt, so I went inside and asked the man if we could return it. They weighed what was left and Read more…

Looking Back, I Remember, by Erika, Year 5

The Three Little Pigs’ houses were in the story when I was younger but I obviously don’t remember any of that. One day I was walking to the shopping centre and there was a new shop which looked exactly the same thing as the Three Little Pigs’ houses; they were made of straw, sticks and bricks. Looking back, I remember the big, blue book that my mum always read to me before I went to Read more…

Giants’ Toys, by Caelie, Year 6

I hopped onto the train to the city to meet my friends. I jumped off and almost crashed into two car-sized dominoes that were lying in the middle of the road. As I looked up, I saw more dominoes tumbling down. Two giants were tipping their toy box upside down and all of their toys were falling, almost hitting me. I ran back to the train to get out of the city as fast as Read more…

Shrouded Mists, by Jack, Year 8

Smoke hung in the air, the sky, orange from the fire in the distance. The horses huffed with each step, exhausted. A cough bleated out from behind me. Inside the cart, a young boy lay, burns up his arm, legs and face. “It will be alright, Lad. We’ll be there soon”, murmured the old driver, comfortingly. He reminisced on when he found the boy caught in a wildfire that was storming up the valley, engulfing Read more…

A Super-Vegan Saves The Day, by Jamison, Year 7

“Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum,” a voice boomed from above, “Oh no! You knocked a domino off the table”. The people of Amsterdam looked up in awe. Who was this voice? Where did it come from?

All of a sudden, there was a gust of wind and one of the dominos began to topple over. Read more…

The Revenge of The Humans, by Erika, Year 5

Dear Human Beings, Wherever you step, underneath live thousand of giants, doing the exact thing you’re doing; going to the shops, going home, running and skipping. The only thing that we can’t do is eat anymore because there is no more food. You’re the lucky ones. You don’t need to eat as much as we do because you’re not as big as us. You know, once my friend Tim even tried to eat our friend, Read more…

The Taste Of Death, by Jack, Year 8

I sat by the fireside along with emissaries from the west. The eldest of the group, Lofelsell Remacher, held a glass of water, his voice wheezed when he spoke. He offered the glass and spoke, “A glass of water before we start?” I took the glass from his hands and brought it towards my mouth, but not before uttering thanks to the old man. The water had an odd metallic smell, almost acidic. I tipped Read more…

The Water, by Erika, Year 5

Prompt: …it looked just like a glass of water… “Come on, shhhhhhh,” Lily whispered. “Grab the bottle and pour it in the cup quickly,” said Bella. Suddenly, their parents came into the room with a loud bang. Just in time, they closed the lid of the bottle. They snuck into their bedroom and started drinking the liquid. That was such a good idea, they thought, but they didn’t know that their parents were listening the Read more…

The Hat, by Zachary M, Year 8

Prompt: Why was that hat on the table? I was at the park with some of my friends from school, Callan, Joe and Ollie. We were playing footy, when out of the corner of my eye, I saw something had been left on the table.

Police Hat, by Erika, Year 5

Prompt: Why was that hat on the table? It was our first day at the death trap, a camp that should only fit a few people in it, but there were hundreds of starving refugees. “Come on, Stack,” my mum said, “We need to feed everyone and get home at six, or the police will see we’re not there!” She sounded concerned. After an hour, Mum and I left. In the car she remembered about Read more…
