It Reminded Me Of The Time When, by Quinn, Year 6

We were in New Zealand for the summer holidays but we hadn’t seen anything besides the boring roads and native trees for hours. I thought it would be more fun driving to the hotel, but it wasn’t. “Are we there yet ?” I kept saying repeatedly, much to everyone’s irritation. Eventually we arrived at Queenstown and started looking for a place to stop and eat when I suddenly saw a blonde haired lady walking past Read more…

It Reminded Me Of A Time When, by Maddy, Year 4

Olivia lived across the road from Maddy and since Year 3, the girls had always been ‘besties’. Over twelve years later, on October 18th, 2022, Olivia and Maddy went shopping at Greensborough Shopping Centre when, out of the corner of her eye, Maddy caught a glimpse of a new cafe called Benson’s Diner. Maddy put a hand on Liv’s shoulder, making her stop suddenly. “What now?” Liv asked impatiently. “That diner reminded me of a Read more…

There Wasn’t Any, by Jazmine, Year 6

I was excited about eating my favourite cereal. I opened up the box but there wasn’t any left. “We only bought this two days ago. How is it gone already? I’m going to the shops”, I yelled in frustration, stamping my feet. “Get milk, please”, said Mum. “Ok”, I replied and I angrily drove to the shops, my stomach growling loudly. I even nearly killed someone by running them over. Eventually, I got the milk Read more…

The letter, by Jacob, Year 6

As I read the contents of the letter, I was aware of the smile on my face. I had got into Marcellin College. It was the school that I always wanted to go to. That is because they have good sporting grounds and a lot of them too. They have two massive football grounds, four soccer pitches, two basketball courts and lots of space to play around. I ran to my mum and said, “I Read more…

There Weren’t Any, by Jacob, Year 6

It is the last ten minutes of school and I can’t stoop day-dreaming about the cake my mum made yesterday, which she said I could have after school today. The bell goes and I run out of the classroom and meet my friends that I walk to the park with everyday after school. We chat about what we did at school and what we are doing after. I finally get home and I walk downstairs, Read more…

The Giants, by Erika, Year 4

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

The Letter, by Erika, Year 4

As I read the contents of the letter, I was aware of the smile on my face. I had won eight tickets to a basketball, netball, soccer and hockey competition. My face lit up with amazement . “Four matches”, I thought, ‘What should I choose?” Finally, I dashed into the house . I told mum I had won 8 tickets. “Who do you want to take?” Mum asked. “I’m taking my friends and you.” Of Read more…

The Witches, by Joshua, Year 6

I look behind the curtain and see a horse, a goat and a bull, but they don’t look like normal animals. They have human bodies, but they are standing dead still. Then they suddenly move towards the house, carrying bags and bottles. I run and hide behind the door. As they come up the old, creaking stairs I see them tipping liquids into a huge black cauldron and hear them talking about how they will Read more…

…but it seemed to be going backwards…by Brookes, Year 5

“My computer’s battery life is going up when I don’t charge it and down when I do. Great!” Edward thought. “This could save the world, no more battery usage.” Edward had been puting aside his battery life, little by little, every day and finally it had all added up. He had discovered a special way of doing it. It is top secret, but here it is ################. See, quite simple. If Einstein was so smart Read more…

… but what colour should it be? … by Brookes, Year 5

My font is sometimes blue when I’m feeling calm and relaxed but I use red when I’m energetic and hypo. Both of these colours mixed together makes purple. Purple is a colour that I write with if I am feeling imaginative. I would not use black because it’s so ordinary and plain, so it makes me feel, well, mediocre and boring. I use dark blue when I am SAD because it is a lonely and Read more…
