Horse Crazy, by Maddy, Year 4

There I was, at school again, in the middle of a boring maths test! The problem was that I didn’t feel in a maths-testy mood, which meant that I was guessing all of the answers. A moment later, a girl in my class stood up and said, ‘Look everybody, look!’, as she was pointing outside, ‘There’s a horse’. Everyone stood up, including me. I was excited because I love horses. Sure enough, when I looked Read more…

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

I was with my friends at the cinema watching The Meg again because Bella hadn’t watched it before. It reminded me of a time when the most unusual thing happened to me. I was in the cinema watching The Meg, which was different to the other movies. This cinema was Halloween style and no-one else was there, only ME!!! All the pictures had come out of the screen and The Meg had started eating me Read more…

It Reminded Me Of A Time When, by Jack, Year 7

As I pulled another small rotted potato from the dry soil, it reminded me of a time when famine wasn’t a thing, where everyone had food on their table. I pulled myself up and tossed the potato aside and moved onto the next, and the next, all to find the same thing. Darach called me over in his lilting Irish accent to see if I had found anything. I responded with, “No”. He sighed, thanked Read more…

The Big Surprise, by Toby, Year 5

Bang! I seem my dad’s steel arms explode to the surface of the earth’s crust. “Gold”, I heard someone say, surprised, “It’s just my dad”, I groaned, “he told me before that he is pulling apart his cassette player for the gold rod inside. He said he will make jewellery for my mum. I can’t say anything about it because it’s a big surprise for their anniversary. My dad spends a long time in his Read more…

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…
