Angel 10

on the 1st of January on new years day I went on a stroll to the woods .I unexpectedly came across an old creaky house.

I didn’t know whether it was a farm or just an old house sitting there like a pet in a pet shop trying to get a home.

I didn’t go into the house because if I went in and someone was just watching TV I would feel very guilty so I chose not to and I carried on my walk but of Course this left in suspense…

Olivia G 10

As I walked through the small dark forest I saw an old overgrown garden with a house stood in the centre! wow I shouted with excitement! thinking whether I should go in, the door crept open. Hello ,hello anyone in ??yes there is said a deep dark voice come and sit down there it was again. show your face little child. um… Who is this? I questioned, mysteriously !

One day Chloe, the short blue eyed female, was taking a stroll through the old bewildered forest. Strokes of wind flew by in a rush to get to the north mountain. As Chloe walked forwards a vague shadow of a house drew nearer and nearer one step at a time. With curiosity Chloe walked closer and closer being careful not to miss a single inch. Pulling herself together she knocked on the door. There was no answer. Was anyone in there? Pushing hard against the door she managed to open it. creeaak! She stepped into the house. Walking around the house felt very odd, often she would hear whiffs of breathing. Chloe walked slowly towards the couch. All of a sudden her friend popped out from behind the couch! Was this a trick set for Chloe, will we ever know.

Fahd 10

I walked through to the secret house…As I approached it cautiously the door creaked open although nobody opened it. It was now midnight and I silently, swiftly moved upstairs to a old dusty, silent room, I twisted a golden handle and ran inside to the secret corridor. There was a note on the wall: “Pick the knife, cut the rope and be prepared FOR DEATH!”
I picked the knife and I cut the rope, something was rumbling above me it was a ROCK! I dived left in a swift movement and I saw a hole… 2 seconds later another note appeared.” Jump down the hole a expect a shock!” I jumped down the hole and found spiders in a cave just 3 meters forward from where I landed. The Cave Spiders scuttled around me and when I thought I was done for they stopped… I was safe. I quickly escaped…

Elizabeth P 10

What could be worse? I was lost and alone in an abandoned forest. Sprinting, “Arrrrrrr!” I screamed while falling to the ground. I looked up to see that I had come across a small house. I wonder who lives there? The small house looked peaceful and inviting as the door swung open.
“Aarr! No, help me!” someone screamed. It sounded as though it was coming from the house. I slowly stepped towards the house. All of a sudden I heard cackling. “ha ha ha ha ha!” I heard a girl screaming again. What do I do shall I save the girl or not?

Sophia 12

He stares at me with huge,orb-like eyes. “I live here.” His voice is quiet and whispery. “I know.” I snap. His stare is disconcerting. “I mean where are your parents?”
“I live here.” He slips farther back into the door. “They have been gone for a long time.” His voice is ominous.
“Yes,a very long time. They left us here.” A higher more melodic voice chimes. A head of dark brown curls peeks out from around the boy. “Shh Bonnie.” Around the door I can see him take her hand in his and I think he says something. The girl,Bonnie, slips back into the house. “Bye.” Her voice floats behind her as she disappears. And with that the boy shuts the door and I stand in front if the yellow cottage like a lost child. My visit has left me even more confused than before…..

Gessaley M G 10

Slowly, the solid metal ship began to sink into the centre of the deep dead ocean. Many boats surrounded the ship and yet, no one helped. Children crying with terror. Parent panicking like it was their very last moments together. The enormous ship sat patiently, gradually getting deeper into the seaweed green sea. Different species from down under surrounded this unusual beast with suspicion. They needed help. Quick. Will anyone rescue them?

Fahd 10

On the 23rd November 2012 I was looking out with my binoculars trying to find something interesting to look at I finally got it. In the distance at Sunny Shore I saw a grey ship tilting into the very dark sea. It was the S.S Cruise Boat! It was rapidly sinking and I rushed to get the life guards. ”Calling all stations, get lifeboats to the S.S Cruise Boat now!”

It was obvious that all people had been saved and I was right! Half an hour later all 1002 people were saved and I did not have to worry. In the distance, coming from the ship, I heard screaming.
I wonder, were all people saved?…..

Malik 10

It was the 12th of March and I just realised when I was looking at the view that my boat was sinking! It tilted to one side. I hurried to the exit but it was blocked by rocks. I suddenly saw that lifeboats were coming to the rescue. They immediately carried the people to shore but I didn’t think they saw me so I screamed “Help, Help!” in desperation to get out. The boat’s bilge was also cracked by the rocks. Water was pouring in and the ship began flooding with dark, blue water. I ,after that, jumped into the sea and swam to a empty boat and it was flooded too! I was horrified to see that it was sinking as well as the other boats so I jumped into the water but I saw a shark swimming to me. Was it the end of me?….

Sophie K 10

I was on a ferry going on holiday to the isle of weight. When all of a sudden I felt a BANG! I was frightened then I looked out the window Ahhhh we are sinking. I got my life jacket on and jumped in the water . A dolphin “I love dolphins there my favourite sea animal.” They are so soft and cuddly . It was my first time touching a real dolphin. But I didn’t know where I was I knew I was somewhere in the middle of the ocean. I swam for hours then finally I got home. I went home and rested in my lovely and warm bed . Then the next morning I went to the park for an ice cream and a relaxing walk along the seaside. I was still a bit tired from yesterday however I did have fourteen hours of sleep. I had a busy day.

Lillie H 10

Ella 10

The deep diamond blue water was swaying like a rainbow of ribbons. Brightly coloured fish were dancing around in silhouette. Rays of sun zoomed in upon the splashing sea water. Speedboats raced around the boat that I was in. Suddenly a thick blast of lightning roared against the sea sending our boat crashing onto its side. BOOM. All boats around ours flew into the distance. The wind was howling, in a furious way. I was panicking. Where are we now? So many questions, my head was turning into a tidal wave. Keep calm, keep calm, I heard the captain saying. Within a moment everything was quiet as a mouse. My mum was shouting wake up Bella, wake up.” Mum are you there.”
“Bella you’ve been asleep forever.”
“Mum are you okay, you fell off the boat.” said the girl.
“What boat.” asked mum.

Sam F 11

I walked in to the shipwreck not knowing what to do. Let me tell you how I got here it all started an Monday morning I went to school as normal but I noticed something strange my friends were acting weird .I mean weirder than normal I was all most like they were not there. On Tuesday I went in but it was like déjà vu in was the same day I went to Mr Saturday class he said the same old thing he tolled me off for the same reason to get a way I swam to the boat to get away form in all but I noted that in the cabin the was a glowing light maybe that was the thing causing the day to keep repeating. Wednesday I tried to stop the machine but it was to hard to break and the tied was rising but I fought that the machine would malfunction but

Hannah W 10

All so quiet after a terrible occurrence that changed my life forever, Leah a loyal friend was on that shipment. All that’s left now is distraught and unheard of. I cry to myself every night. I wished it was me on that shipment. On the shipment there was a ghost, the ghost followed the back of the ship. Waiting for the time to strike. Everyone watched on the hill mouths gaping open they watched silently as it sunk to the bottom. I glared at the search team. “No survivors” he said with a frustrated look.
“What?” I shouted angrily.
“I did my best kid OK” he huffed.
“Try harder” I scowled.
He was so rude at this point I felt like strangling him…

Hannah A 10

It was all so quite on the hill as everyone was watching the ship as it began to sink I was really worried about my brother because he was on the ship I wanted to know what had made the ship sink and that’s where I began . I started to think of what could of done it I started to think that a alligator gar could of done it so I run home and did some research on the alligator gar I ran back to the hill and time was running out the ship was sinking.

Savannah S 11

I crept under the bush it was all prickly and thorny. I was watching the boats go past I saw a small jet come whizzing down. An enormous submarine came past, then I heard I bag bang I looked around but couldn’t see anything then I saw the submarine go lopsided . What happened. I could see more ships in the background would they help. The ship was grey and had writing on it. It had some strips on it. but then I heard a helicopter coming and saved the people.

Eve Charlotte B 10

I crept behind the bush I peered through; the spiky bush pricked me it absolutely stung. I couldn’t believe what I saw, it was a boat it was sinking I was going to call the coast guard but I couldn’t I was too scared. I saw a jet ski it zoomed by I also saw some boats. My mum came she said that I should get away but I didn’t want to, I wanted to see what happened next. Suddenly the lifeboat came people were jumping of the edge of the boat. The lifeboat got everybody of the boat and the people that had jumped of got pulled up from the water. THE END

Kieran 10

It was 1943 when the lovely ship was designed. In the year 2000 the ship was made each week the ship got better and better until we gave the ship a speed boost it was the world’s fastest ship it was called Hope . It brings hope and peace then Hope went to how much pain she felt bang Hope stopped in fear and swam deep into the dark blue sea and was never seen again .

Oliver 10

One day when I was going for a walk on the boat I seen in the distance I saw a storm in the distance soon as though I was heading to Scotland I thought it was natural but I got a drifting wood come along the side of the boat so I grabbed it and I looked at it and it was not a normal piece of wood it was wood that had markings on it or symbols or even a note set out to find me and it looked like it said go home its not safe so after a while I went to the captain and showed him it and he said to me ‘That my friend is called a message from the gods’ and then suddenly a crash bang the boat I was on didn’t stand a chance

Calum 11

I was walking along the beach as I looked to the left and saw an, abandoned ship that was lopsided but not sunk like it was, levitated I wondered how it hasn’t sunk yet I ran to a boulder to look for a boat so I ,could go check It out but all I could see was, a row boat so I scaled my way down to the boat and rowed my way to the, somehow floating boat as I clambered on board the huge boat shacked because a tiny thing like me. Can rock a huge boat like this only a giant can rock this bad boy of a boat.

Katie T 10

I once was playing on my ipad quiet as a mouse. But my mum and dad were as loud as a elephant watching the news. “Why does this stuff happen” my dad ground that at every story. But then I will carry on responding “because it does”. Until the big news story came on “ca” I was going to question “shh I want to hear this my parents repeated after one and another.” There has been a serious ship sink 200 people were on the boat at the time only 19 were killed in the ship 180 were saved by the police and many police have been seeing why this has been done” blabbed on the news “ ugh” I sighed I went up stairs to watch my telly the flipping news came back on this is the worst day of my life.

Ethan 10

One day I was on my dads ferry and we herd something in the engine room so we went down there it was moist from the cold of the sea and then we noticed their was water poring in and then suddenly .
The ferry stopped and we started to sink and the engine set on fire and we ran bake up the stairs and told the passengers get to the life rafts the ferry is sinking look but the in the engine room their was a massive explosion wow I said

Izzy 10

Suddenly I heard a rumbling noise. Then a terrible screech . My hands were shaking, my heart was pounding. I took my hand and rubbed the window clean, I peered through I couldn’t believe what I saw, I saw nothing just blue and blue and blue. I screamed. I scurried up the slippery slimy steps. I quivered it was terrifying. People pushed and barged to get through. Suddenly BANG I hit my head. I blacked out then …

Tali 10

The legend of the mythical Mountain Sea must be true as another boat sunk today whilst travelling to the island of St Helens. Everyone was there; everyone saw the Penguin (boat) sinking. 31 people were on the boat only one body found. Let me tell you the myth. Once there was a sailor, he was a lovely man. He was natures best friend, feeding seal cubs his spare mackerel. One day he saw an eel, the creature was swimming on its own. He reached down into the water to scoop it up. That’s when it bit, a howl came from the sea and everyone saw the sailor turning into a snake, a water snake. He slithered of his boat and gobbled up his apprentice on board. He sunk his boat and many others after that. The monster was never seen above water again but still lived in the Mountain Sea.

Libby 10

One day I was walking up a mountain and I saw a ship sinking. The ship looked old like it had been sinking for ages but no one could see it happening. It was a big ship it probably had over 600 rooms and 10 pools. I decided to go have a look so I rented a boat and sailed out. When got to the ship I got of my boat and climbed abhorred. The ship was silent their was no one their. I looked around a bit their where 800 hundred rooms a ball room a swimming room with a hot tub and a sauna a dining room and a kitchen. When I was about to leave I fell down a hole. Their was a room full of guns and machines. I was looking around and all of a sudden aliens came in. I cant remember anything else because they wiped my memory but I know they came in peace.

Lochlan 10

I was walking along the beige sand and that’s when I noticed it.
It had flames on the top but below the dark blue ocean there was only one thing a great big hole.
It must have been there for a fair few ours and there was only one survivor who had washed up on the shore line .
There was police every were ,one of them asked me what I ‘d seen but I told him I’ve only just got here and that I didn’t see any thing .
As I walked away I over heard some people talking an saying that the survivor was a Russian spy who was trying to sneak on to the island so he could try and find out what secrets of England so he could send it back to Russia .they also said that they were trying to start world war three.

Josh 10

It can’t be can it spot is that you I shouted I slid down carefully We met each over again at the bottom of the hill there was a faded walk way me and spot followed it taken us to the old crashed boat I was scared.

Cory 11

One day I went on a boat trip and it was not very nice but it wasn’t raining when we reached some other boats it was hard for the boat driver to steer it and when he turned left it crashed and tipped over and I heard loads of bangs and crashes. I got really scared because I thought I was going to die and the boat went under the water I felt the water touching me but then all of a sudden I saw a mask so I went and swam of under the sea. When I got into the sea I saw a great white shark and then I saw a massive thing but I don’t know what it was so I swam of in to the blue ocean. Then I saw a massive crab walking along the rocks then I swam further down then I tasted blood.

Nathan J 10

I was sailing with my family to west America in shark infested water. We were in the pool until there was massive BANG! People fell into the water bellow and ate them. The boat started to sink slowly into the deep dark water bellow. I sent a SOS signal and the cost guard was coming. After half a hour past they finally got here. They took me and my family back home and everything went back to normal.

Ben B-W 11

All so suddenly, I was in a boat cruising in the Loch Ness Sea. I was zooming past loads of other boats and then, it appeared. It had scaly skin which was all pale green, and from the look of it, it wanted food. Its eyes filled with hunger as they looked at me. Could this be the end of me? I did not know. Its pupils were really vast and its mouth opened larger than a snakes. It looked about 60 feet long, well at least, that is about the size that I had seen. It moved towards me, faster and faster, and then went back under. Could it have gone and left me alone? Maybe it understood the fear in my eyes and left. Until that little moment later, it came from UNDERNEATH the boat and toppled the old destroyed boat over. Now this was definitely the end…

Lillie H 10

I was walking down the beach to take the dog for a walk I was looking at the lovely view of the boats just floating around so calm and then I looked to see where the dog was then Rollo was looking in this bush so I knew that he was ok then I turned back around and BANG there was the ferry boat has crashed into a boat and it has turned the ferry on its side luckily no one was hurt everyone grabbed a life jacket and jumped out. The boat sank and sank until it hit the bottom of the ground It made a big bang after I had finished watching I shouted Rollo and put him on his lead we walked through the lanes where they were muddy we got home and I got changed and had a lovely hot pot for tea

Elliot 11

I was walking across the bumpy shore when I heard a loud crumbling noise. I looked into the wilderness. I saw a shipwreck falling to the ocean. I called for someone to call the coastguards. I did not have any credit on my rubbish phone. I wish I had a new phone, so I could be the hero and save the day by calling the coastguards, and to save those vulnerable people that may have already died. Luckily I had some binoculars in my back pack. I actually had two pairs but I am going to use my camouflage ones because they see further .The amazing coastguards finally arrived. I could see a man shouting at the top of his vice I could not make out what he was saying. The coastguards were about a mile away from the shipwreck. I could hear what the man said “I DID THIS!!!!

Dominic 10

“What’s happening” I yelled, What’s that noise. “The boats tipping. Lets get out of here MOVE MOVE MOVE! Then a crate fell over the side, then me and the other’s jumped over the side into the raft boats and a guy pulled out a blade and cut the lines securing the boat to the craft, the boat crashed beside the sinking ship and the motor roared signalling us to get out of here then spluttered and died I knew what I had to do but the others were hesitant. I dived into the water and ploughed through the water, the rest of the guy’s followed just as a crate fell in we were all rescued by a lifeguard bat and I got back to my family.

Elizabeth 10

I wake up. I hear screaming. What’s going on? I look out of the cabin window. I am supposed to be on top of the water not underneath it! This was meant to be a dream cruise; now look at what it has turned out to be. My heart is pounding. What about my Mum, my Brother my, whole family in fact? I rapidly open the door of my cabin. I have to duck, dodge and hide because of the amount of people running everywhere, like a heard of zebras being chased by an angry lion. Panicking, I ask a random stranger how the ship ended up in such a mess.
“Who cares, none of us know. Let’s just get out of here,” they scream. I look around to see the pitch black, oily water splashing up against the boat. What am I going to do….?

Jonathan T 11

As the ship began to sink the seagulls started to crowd around the sinking ship. It had been stuck against an enormous rock and has tilted towards the sea. As the years passed by people started to claim that they were on the ship at the time, no one believed them. A few days later a strange looking man swam to the boat from the shore. He had gotten a lot of people to help him tip the boat back in its position. A few weeks later lots more people gathered round and help but then didn’t swim there like the man. Unfortunately the man died 3 years later after the ship had been put in its place he had died of cancer and he was well remembered. After the boat was back in place everyone lived happily. The End That’s my story I hope you like it

Lucy 11

“Heeeeeelp! W-what happened?” I questioned, as I spat out heaps of strong salty sea water. I peered around the sunken ship to see if anyone else survived… I was all alone. In the middle of the deep monstrous sea. Alone. I panicked and started to scream for help. But nothing, no one replied. I sat on the seaweed covered, wet seat and started to sulk. I nervously wandered to the bottom of the deck and peeked around the corner. I saw mermaids.. and blood, and then I realized that they have sunk the ship on purpose! I battled them and grabbed their shiny iron swords and slayed them all… “Lucy…LUCY! I need the toilet! C’mon!” I jumped out of my skin and realized I had a dream about Shipped Wrecked the TV show.. and that my brother wanted the toilet… it was all a dream..

Hanna 10

As I awoke from my bed I felt the cruise ship tilt. I jumped out of bed. I walked slowly, carefully. I reached the stair case suddenly the boat fell towards the left. I could faintly hear the rotor blades of a helicopter spinning! Quickly I ran up the stairs to see…A large flash of white….It was all a dream…

Jessica Braham 8

One day, Olaf was walking around a castle and suddenly stepped on a button. A wall mysteriously opened…And behind was a scroll. Olaf ran forward and grabbed the scroll. Olaf ran down a rocky corridor. Suddenly, he bumped into Anna “Anna I’ve found a roundie thing” “a roundie thing, Anna replied “what’s a roundie thing”. “This” replied Olaf. “that’s a scroll silly”. They open the scroll and found out it was a treasure map and decided to look for the treasure once they had followed the steps they found treasure…..100 gold coins and a key! Where did the key fit?? Olaf and Anna had some more exploring to do!!

Sophia 12

The old, moulding scroll sat on it’s little platter as it had for years. I almost didn’t dare touch it. Grandmother’s last smile hung in my head. “That old scroll in the attic. Yes that one. It’s very important. Keep it safe, Isla. Keep it safe.” Her words seem to be replaying in my ears. I reach out my thin, white fingers and slowly untie the ribbon. I am terrified it will crumble when I touch it but it only unfurls. I gasp as my eyes skim over the paper. In small, cramped handwriting is a list of human sins. Thousand of them.

Jon Nikrich 40

“What do you say?” I asked the scroll.
“Does it matter?” it replied.
“It does to me. There is something about the scene and the lighting. Everything about you makes me curious about the contents.”
“I’ll take that as a compliment,” it said. “but it’s still the wrong question.”
“Oh. OK.”
I didn’t know how else to reply. I’d never been rebuked by a scroll before.
“Think less about what I say and celebrate that I say something, anything. Reading is wonderful. Writing can be even better. Ask yourself what you would write on a scroll for this scene and for this lighting. When you’ve answered that question, come back and I’ll tell you what I say.”
I did as it suggested and I wrote my own scroll. And I kept writing.
I never found out what the scroll said. I was too busy following its advice.

One snowy Christmas day a child ran quickly downstairs she looked out of the window and noticed something. Something was outside (it was a present) a lovely large present.
Next she noticed it was on her tree, she didn’t know who it was from. It looked like it was for her but she wasn’t sure.

I said “lets bring it inside, so we can open it when they get in. They started to open the present. when it all had been opened it started to move I said “it is magic”. It was now opening a little head popped out it was a Christmas Elf. He said shyly “hello” and after a long time I got to be Santa’s helper in the shops.

Rosie W 8

One Christmas morning, I was walking my dog (called Santa Paws) when I suddenly saw one of Santa’s elves handing out presents that Santa had forgotten. The elf called out my name so I walked over to him, anxiously, not knowing what was going to happen. I got my present off him and I thought I had opened them all but maybe not. So I went home and opened it, the label said “with love”. When I opened it, it was MUD PERFUME! An hour later, I returned to the elf and he said with a little laugh, “I’m sorry I gave you the wrong present” so he gave me another one which I took home. When I opened it, it was some more perfume but it smelt beautiful. And the tag still said “with love”.

One cold Christmas morning the kids were going to get up to see the presents. When they got up they were going to open them but mum and dad came. “It’s the middle of the night!, I will go back to bed for ten minutes.” They got down the presents but all there was left to open, was one. They did not know who it was from. They did not know who it was for. They all went to the post office to see who had wrapped it. They went to the shop to tell all of the shop keepers. The last shop was a toy shop. They saw a chocolate bar for tea and dinner. When they got home and they opened the present it was chocolates.

At 3:00am me and Logan ran downstairs as fast as an F1 car. We glared at the presents. “It’s heaven down here!” I said to Logan. Logan then heard mum shout, “IT’S CHRISTMAS!” Glumly, mum stomped down the jet black rickety staircase and said, “GET BACK TO BED, it’s too early!” Then mum took one look around the room and looked at one particular present. It looked like an adult’s present because it had lovely ribbon and post wrapping paper. Mum ran and ripped the paper to smithereens. “It’s an alarm clock but what for?” “Maybe just to keep you awake.”

One beautiful sunny day a little girl woke up. She quickly ran downstairs and found a present on the sofa. Who was it to? Who was it from? It had a label on it saying, “With Love” it had been wrapped up very neatly with some beautiful tied on. I decided to shake it carefully because I didn’t want to break it, so I could try to figure it out. I took it upstairs into my bedroom. I really wanted to know what it was. I decided to open it. It was an i-pad! But my mum was coming so I quickly tried to wrap it back up but it didn’t look the same. My mum came in, “Is that for me?” I didn’t know what to say but “Errr, it is!” so she took it and opened it.

I saw a gift (it looked like an adult’s gift but hey ho!) so quickly, I ran to home. Everyone was at work, I looked at the tag and it said: “with love” I opened it and inside was two little figures. One Santa and one Rudolf. Then I went to go and get a drink and when I turned back to get the figures they had gone! WHICH MEANT THEY WERE ALIVE! So I looked under my bed and saw them munching on my stash of sweets! I said, “I don’t know why or how you are alive but you can stay here!” The next day, we were playing tag, Rudolf was on and he was too epic at it so everyone got caught. Now it’s near the end of my story, I am now 86 years old but Santa and Rudolph are still with me. Why wouldn’t they be?

Christmas was coming soon, but one family wasn’t decorating AT ALL! All they did was put ONE bauble on the tree. I MEAN WHO WOULD DO THAT? Their hearts were black and smelt horrid! One little girl (she was only five) called Jessica, believed whole of her life. She believed that Santa even had a pet dog, a wife called Santa paws and Mrs claws. She was three she started and up to now she always loved Santa claws. Her big brother NEVER believed! NEVER! It made her cry. She was very sad that day, very! Her brother wasn’t though! He said it every day. One day Santa came, dropped one present off! Jessica ripped it open, it was a box of love!

Their mum and dad had told them not to open the unnamed present. After, they went to get dressed they suddenly, opened it. They found out it was a laptop but a little one, smaller than a chromebook. When they had logged on they got a message saying “merry Christmas love apel”. Soon after, there mum and dad came down. To their surprise they didn’t get told off but they were told I hope you like it and they said ”yes”! Their mum started crying.” I’m glad”, she said. The children got a profile and went on youtube and watched famous five get into a fix. They loved it, it was the best present E.V.E.R !

The Present
There was a little girl, she was called Lucy, and she was going to the park. When she got there she saw something gleaming in the sunlight. She took a close look, it was a present. She picked it up and went home. When she got home she went into her room and shook the box. There were lots of thuds! She thought for a moment and then unwrapped the present. It said “chocolate collection, Dairy Milk”. “Hmmm,” said Lucy, she opened the tub of chocolates and she tasted one of them. “Hmmm, I don’t think I got the taste of that,” so she had another one. “Hmmm, not that one either,” until there were no more chocolates left. She forgot to wipe her mouth and she went down the stairs. “Hi mum” said Lucy. “What have you been eating?” her mum said. “Chocolates?”
The end.

One cold Christmas morning, Tom and Katy (2 cheeky children) had woke their parents up going downstairs. Tom and Katy heard their parents say, “Go back to bed!” but the children said, “No, you’re coming down here” so they came downstairs and they opened their presents. There was one left but it had no name on it. It just said, “With love” so they opened it together. Inside was a magic bottle! As years went by the house got more magical until one day in the year 2018 the mum remembered the magic bottle. So then she went to the place where they had put it and she saw that the bottle had broken. She then got some tape and taped it back up and the magic seemed to disappear.

One early Christmas morning, at 1 o’clock, a child ran quickly downstairs. Suddenly, the boy saw his glorious presents, he ran back upstairs. He was jumping on his parents’ bed, they woke up and said, “Urrrggghhhh, is it Christmas already?” So the boy, mum and dad all went downstairs, the boy opened all of his presents. He asked his mum if he could go outside then mum said, “yes” so he got his cosy coat, his mittens and his hat. He was all ready to go outside. He saw something out of the corner of his eye, he picked it up and sat on a chair and he started to open the present. When he had got all of the wrapping paper off he saw it was an xbox 360.
The End!

It was Christmas eve when everyone was waiting for Santa to come tonight. Then the whole street went to bed. Suddenly, I heard Santa so I fell asleep. Then the next morning there was lots and lots of presents for me and my sister. We were making so much noise so mum and dad woke up. After mum and dad got up we took in turns to unwrap our presents. After we unwrapped them we had breakfast, I had jam on toast. Then at lunch time, while mum cooked dinner, dad took us to the pub. Then we went back for dinner and it was lovely. After I had pudding, I played with my furby boom.

Strangely, I stumbled on a rock, which lead me towards a window, with a present saying on it ‘With Love’. Who could it be for? I had no idea… Could it be off Santa or could it just be there for show? Could it even be for me? I did not know, well, not until I walked inside the shop. I noticed the present, it looked like it was glowing. I walked over to it and I peeled a slight part of the wrapping paper off. Inside, was a glowing trophy. It said on it, ‘Santa’s Little Helper’. Who could it have been for, I asked myself? I thought long and hard. Of course! It was for Rudolph!! I looked around, on the wall, I spotted a picture, it said all of the reindeers, Rudolph, Donner, Blitzen, Cupid, Comet, Dancer, Prancer, Dasher and Vixen. I was amazed. Astonishingly, Santa flew past!

I stepped towards the scratched table in the crammed kitchen. There was a mysterious parcel wrapped up in Chrismassy wrapping paper. The note beside it read ‘With Love’ but no name was upon the note, so I rapidly tore off the pretty wrapping and inside was… a box. Nervously, I opened the box and inside the box was yet another note. The note read ‘In this box, there is a mobile phone, you may call me whenever you need me’ so I opened the second box and there (As the note said) was a mobile phone. But who was it from? That remained a mystery for me to solve…

I dawdle to the coffee table,” I’m so exhausted” I whined. My legs feel like jelly and my eye lids feel heavy. I slide open the screen door and go outside to the glass table that reflects the sun. I find a half opened present. ” what the heck is a cardboard box doing outside of here” I said in confusion. I go closer and closer and closer until ” BARK! ” WOOF! ” I open the box and find a cute fluffy cuddly toy dog. I find a letter in the box. It said this is my love to you in a box even though I am gone I will always be with you. My heart begins to ache and the tears start to well up. I have to take care of this thing.

Once upon a time Jack sent a love letter to Nicki but it went to Chantal from a secret admirer. It was a necklace with powers that could send you to different dimensions like the spaghetti dimension and lots more.

She felt like riding a unicorn and a portal opened to a different dimension and she rode a purple pony. Chantal could do what ever she wanted for the rest of her life. Nicki married Jack and on their 10th anniversary she got nothing. So she rang Jack questioning him as he realised he sent it to his ex. NICKI WAS SO MAD! So she went down there and Chantal just gave it over as Nicki questioned why?

As the sun hit my face, I woke up from an amazing dream about me winning the grand finals for my dance competition. But I had much more to worry about. So I rushed downstairs to find nothing under the Christmas tree. I was looking around confused as to why there weren’t any presents. Then I heard a knock on the door. I slowly opened it and found a beautifully wrapped present at the front door. I grabbed it and ran inside. I opened it in relief and it was a beautiful pair of high heels. I screamed with joy. The sinking feeling was gone. I checked the tag to see who it was from . It only stated “Your Secret Admirer

Dear, Kyan
I am writing this letter to you to give you a warning that whatever you do with this present is to not do this

After that day the present was sent to Kyans house 53 Boardway Hemmingtons but instead it arrived at 53 Boardcrie Hemmingtons Brittany Heffreys house the girl ,that always got excited about single little thing that she was given or told by others.
One evening that day Britteny found the present on her front doorstep and

so she unwrapped the present as fast she could then took the present out but before you knew it at the blink of an eye her hand was in the middle of pitch blackness in the pulling her in and in…

One cold, evening on a remote island a young travellers dreams were invaded with the sight of an ancient cave. As the wind howled and clouds filled the sky the young traveller found himself trapped in a storm. From a distance he could see his small house was already destroyed. As he realised it was too dangerous to stay outside he found a cave. To his amazement it was the exact same cave that was in his dream. Curiosity took over his body leading him deeper inside the cave. As it darker and wider it felt like a rope was attached to him and something was wheeling him in. Suddenly, a root stuck up from the ground and wrapped itself around the young travellers ankle, causing him to trip. As his hands touched the ground he felt a large box buried beneath the dirt. He began digging. Finally he found the mystery box. Attached to the box was a letter. As he read it the young traveller realised the cave he was in wasn’t really a cave it was palace and the box was a present
sent to the Queen from a King. Overwhelmed with joy he grabbed the box and letter and bolted out of the cave. The storm was over. The young travellers discoveries made the young traveller famous and he finally became the explorer he wanted to be.

Oscar B 7

One ( very ) early morning on Christmas day I leaped out of to open my presents. Then I ran down the old rusty stairs to open them. Suddenly I was making so much noise that I didn’t realise my mum was looking at me. After that there was one more present left it said with love I opened it anyway. It was a bright pink doll. Then my cousin came around and everyone laughed at me!

Louis 9

Suddenly, there was a loud bang as something heavy dropped through the letter box. It was wrapped in shiny Christmas paper with a name tag on it. Desperate to know who the mystery gift was from, he flung open the door only to find there was nobody there! Shutting the door the boy went back to examining the mystery present. Gently, the boy shook the box to see if it would give him any clues to what lay inside. It was bulky but it made no sound. Knowing that it was not Christmas day, the boy sneakily lifted a corner of the wrapping. To the boys surprise and frustration, underneath was more wrapping. The boy heard a knock at the door and went to answer it and again there was no one there. In anger the boy slammed the door and looked around for the present, but it was gone!
