the kidnappers

“GET HIM” I heard someone below loudly whilst marching up the stairs with a double barrel shotgun. Terrified, I hid inside a rusty antique cooker trying to control my heart rate. My arms were frozen with fear. It was as cold as Antarctica. Would I get out alive?

Suddenly the door was shot down by his wreck less gun. The room began to flicker in its flashlight held by a vicious shadow, with a mask, seeking us out. petrified to move, my were shaking like a rapid fire gun from wwII (world war 2). With a huge sigh of relief, I could see the  shadow moving away.  Whilst trying to get the cobwebs out of my hair, I tried to remember how I got into this mess.

It had only been half an hour ago, when my uncle sent me to the shop to get myself a snack for school tomorrow. While I was waiting at the pedestrian crossing, I heard it. There was a scream on the other side of the road. There was a man looking for a terrified boy. Without a doubt, I snuck in through an old fire exit to take a further look. He told me he was the presidents son,bob, and the ramson.

So there I was, hiding inside an old cooker trying to rescue bob. As I slowly crept out of the cooker I could see the fear on his face. Using the curtains to make a rope, we safely lowered ourselves down. Without a warning, the rope was ripping and bob was still at the top. 30 seconds later and it was hanging by a thread. Then it broke. I stopped breathing. heart rate heightening. and somehow I caught him.

Fifteen tiring minutes later, and I was back at my uncles. “put your snack in your bag” said my uncle. ” Don’t have a snack” I said he saw bob. 2 hours later and his dad arrived in a black limo zine.  I was rewarded with a TV interview and £500,000.

The rotten thief

“Kill that filthy brat!” I yelled furiously whilst swiping my rusty dagger with one fluid motion. I bolted upstairs like a famished cheetah chasing it’s weak prey.

Getting the boy by surprise, I booted the door straight down and entered. With my dagger leading the way, I entered the empty room. The boy was obviously hiding for sure. I flickered on my heavy torch, scanning all the empty corners and prayed that he did not escape my house with all my precious items. As I sighed in despair, I remembered how I got into this mess.

It had only been 10 minutes ago when the brat was searching my cupboards taking everything there was. I saw him resetting my amazing IPhone. I glared at him for intimidation but he tried to run away so I quickly bolted after him.

So there I was, robbed by a rugrat. It was silly but devastating. He obviously escaped me. I scanned all the other looted rooms and prayed this was just a bad dream but this was no dream, this was real.

Breathless, I furiously punched the solid walls in despair. I called my family, telling them the bad news. They told me it was ok and they will help me save up to buy my stuff back. After a hour or two, they took me to a fancy restaurant and we forgot about the robbery.

Dark prison- by Yasameen

Someone was stomping up the stairs  like a vicious dinosaur. petrified I scrambled in side a decrepit wardrobe. I could feel my heart thumping like a Maya music. I could feel my legs shivering and sweating . Would I ever get hurt?

Silently, the neglected door opened and someone tiptoed in  I saw a bright light switch on. Calmly, the light switched off. Like a blanket the dark covered the light. As we clambered out of the window and slithered down the mouldy roof I was only trying to remember how I got into such a mess?

It had only ben half an hour ago, when mum sent me out to get her some cat food for her poor cat. When I was waiting to cross the road, I saw a car with a trapped girl inside. By following the car into the house I entered in to take a closer look.

So there I was hiding next to a dark prison trying to rescue a kidnapped girl. She just finished telling me that she is the British queen’s daughter and when the kidnappers moved her to a safe house. In the same car I saw!

When I reached at our house , my mum’s cat was desperately hungry “were is the cat food” my mum asked . the next moment dad came and took us all for a huge meal and I asked for a newspaper and I was a hero! Every one started taking pictures and flashes for me as a hero I still can’t believe I did it.

By Yasameen

The fun fair fear

Sitting in the sweaty seat my heart pounded. Hoping this was the last round but it wasn’t I had 5 more rounds to go. I glanced at my friends dad thinking how angry my mum would be at me because I went to the fun fair?

At that moment, the seat went flying  up and then it went upside down I felt as if I were about to be sick. My fear grew bigger and bigger. By this time my head was pouring with sweat while I tried to think how I got Into such a mess.

It had only been 5 hours ago when mum had sent me to get some milk from the shops. I desided to take  a shortcut through Bralty street where my friend Ayshah when her door opend.

She came out and saw me so she asked “Do you want to come to the fun fair with me and my dad ?” I had no choice to say but to say “Yes.” And that was the moment it all started.

And here I am on a life threatening ride. Finally I got off that horrible ride and ran all the way home. Mum was pretty angry when she heard where I’ve been. And then mum asked “Wheres my milk Katy ?” I didn’t ansar instead I ran up the stairs to my bedroom.





“Get her” I heard someone coming up the stairs, like wild rhinos about to demolish a boulder. I hid behind a wardrobe, trying to be dead silent my face soaked with fear. would I ever make it out alive?

The door slowly opened. a light flickered on and stabbed the darkness just then I realized that it was trying to search me out, a few moments later the light was gone it felt like someone was still there. A minute later the door shut. I tried to remember how I got into this mess.

It had only bin thirty minutes ago, when my uncle sent me to the shop to buy green apples and strict, orders not to get the red ones. He hatted those on I always said it was the same. On my way home there was a terrible scream coming from the end of the park. I ran there and got in through a small hole in the back.

So that’s how it happened, I was in a old house hiding behind a wardrobe. there was strange noises coming from behind a door. I opened it slowly. There was a girl behind it, she thanked me and told me she was the presidents daughter Lizze Jones and about the ransom money. We searched for tools for our escape I found a key and there was a locked cabinet I opened it and there was rope we scaled down.

Ten exhausting minutes later, we arrived at my uncle house “Where is my change” he said whilst eying Lizze.After a while Lizzes dad arrived he explained what happened and the next day I was on the news as a hero.

Air Borne

I was in a lambo inside jumbo jet. Beep! I had arrived. With great courage, I drove backwards off the jet. I was coming in fast! I quickly activated the parachute. Clang! I had finally landed safely on the road. I saw the enemy tank ahead. Luckily my dad had modified his Lamborghini to do wheelies. So I courageously wheeled on to the tank. I was on! I slowly slithered out of the lambo. I gripped the handle bars of the tank . Then with great momentum I swung into the tank.

I tried to remember how I got into this commotion. It had all started when I got a call from my dad saying he was a government spy. At first I didn’t believe him it was when the jumbo jet arrived that I knew it was true. They told me to bring my dads lambo. Fortunately my dad taught me to drive. 10 minutes later… Beep it was time to go…

So that’s how it happened, I saw  mini gun I picked it up and hid it behind my back. Just then I saw a crook he had a knife  I took out my mini gun and he dropped the Knife and started begging. “Please don’t hurt me I know where your dad is!” he said giving me a key. straight then left, now please don’t hurt me!” I  immediately ran to my dad and  freed him.

” Dad where have you been?” I said running out of the tank and climbing into the lambo. Vrm! Vrm !Vrm ! Oh no we were cornered on the edge of  a cliff. We reversed off the cliff. Just in time the jet arrived. we flown of. ” Argh!!!!! get him!!!” the commando roared.

The next week we were in the paper. And continued doing our hero stuff so by!!!!!!!!

Billy and James

“Get them!” I heard somebody screaming devilishly whilst storming up the stairs like a speed of lightning. Rapidly, I scrambled behind a dusty chest trying to calm my breathing. My legs were shaking and they couldn’t stop. Would I ever get caught?

Unfortunately, the decrepit door had been kicked down. The room began to glow by a lantern light held by a vague shape. The lantern light pointed into my direction searching my flesh out. I could feel my heart beating like a herd of elephants. Whilst my heart was beating slowly, I let out an enormous sigh and I could see a light fading away. When I got all the dust of my hair, I tried to remember how I got into such a terrible disaster.

It had only been an hour ago when my dad had sent me to the shop to get some flour. While I was waiting to cross the road, I saw it. There was a frightened face in the window mouthing a and the word was ‘HELP’. So I came in through a smashed window to take a closer look.

So there I was hiding behind a dusty chest  trying to save the trapped hostage. As I crept out of the room, I glimpsed through a cracked hole on the chest and spotted a boy screaming for help. He told me he was related to royalty and there was a ransom on his head. Using our cunning intelligence, we tied up the curtains to lower ourselves down. I can’t believe we did it.

Ten tiresome minutes, we arrived safely at dad’s house. Standing in the kitchen with the ingredients he needs. My dad declared “Oi! where’s my baking flour?!” dad questioned.” I am very sorry but it’s my fault. Your son has saved my life from some nasty horrible people” James the royalty boy answered, stepping slowly forward to my dad. A few seconds later, the Royals Rolls Royce appeared  with a guard standing beside the car and they gave me a badge of honour. I was the worlds new hero.


There was once a boy named James. He had his own little treehouse. One day, James saw an old, dusty, small box so he opened the box and saw a golden key, he took the key  out from the box…

He was in a strange and wonderful world, full of flowers and also the humans were all made out of FLOWERS!!! He was surprised and he loved the smell of the flowers.

He made a lot of things from the beautiful flowers, he also made two friends in his age, they played, they talked, they made a lot of things together, James had a wonderful time in the flower world .

But little did he know, he was trapped and his friends had to go to their home and he was all alone. He tried his best to find the golden magical key but he couldn’t.

Then he saw a twinkling golden flower and inside it, it was the golden magical key. He was very happy.

Then suddenly, he returned back home safely and directly rushed to his mother and said” I really miss you mom” while hugging her. ” Ok? I miss you too” said his mom shockingly and unexpectedly. He had the most adventurous day in his whole life.


The neglected house

“Get that rat !” screamed my kidnappers whilst stomping  up the stairs like a firce lion. Petrified, I hid behind some  curtains hoping they woulnt find me. Trying to stop my hands from shaking I ran under a table because they was heading my way.Would I live or would I die?


Suddenly, the door slammed shut and the foot steps klicked  back down the stairs . Trying to remember  why I had to take the short cut on the way to school.


It was precisely fifteen minutes ago when mum sent me  to the shop with £3 to buy some milk . While I was wating to cross  the road. I saw a frightend little girl sat under a table with sweat poring down her face. I went to go and see if she was okay.


So there I was rescuing a kidnaped girl from getting hurt. She told me thatl she was princess Ruby ( The  queens daughter )  SO we opened the window and tied all the blankets we could find together then threw them out of the window then  we threw sofa cushions on top. As we jumped out  of the  window we heard the kidnapers again.


10 minutes later, we was at my house . ” so Harry where’s my milk , I’ve been waiting for breakfast!”  Mum announced angrily . Just then she noticed Princess Ruby ” Im sorry  your majesty”


5 minutes  later , the Queen apeard in a landrover with blaked out windows and gave me the bage of bravery and let me come and live  in the castle with her and princess Ruby.

The test Subject

I was in the illuminati’s lab pretending I had kicked my football in the hole in the blue roof. They said I could get it. What was I thinking?

Still inside the mind blowing lab, one of the workers ,that had goggles on, was coming up the stairs I hid in a room. Why was he pulling a switch?

It had only been twenty minutes ago, that my mum had sent me to go get some tea bags on the way I saw the illuminati’s lab. That’s how I got in.

The worker had just left the room so I got out my phone and took some pictures so I could tell the police. I was just about to go through the door but. It was locked.

I found a paper clip in my back pocket so I used it on the lock. I was shocked when  I saw what was happening. The were testing on defenceless monkeys.

When I got back home I told my mum and she called the police. The next day I was kindly rewarded with £20,ooo. I was a. Hero.

The hero

‘’GET HER’’ someone shouted so Teonie  was hiding under the bed. Teonie heard the door trying to screech open but the footsteps became louder and louder.

A moment later, the door got kicked down and the torch flicked on as the man glared suspiciously. Teonie’s heart felt like it skipped a beat.

It had only been six minutes later when mum had sent Teonie to the shop to get some juice somebody screamed so Teonie dropped the juice and went to see what was going on.

So there Teonie was, hiding under the bed trying to rescue the girl. As Teonie crept like a mouse she peeked to see if the girl has gone. But she wasn’t she told Teonie she was the kings daughter and about the money.

Sixty minutes later, we arrived at Teonie’s mums house. ”So Teonie were is my juice” her mum said  ”I am so sorry mum I just had to save a girl from danger.” A moment later a car pulled up.

It was the king ”dad this girl saved my life” said the girl.

After that, her dad took us all out for a treat and the king gave me a badge that said hero on it but it was so shiny.

So now Teonie is a special hero and we got to watch Teonie saving the kings daughter from the beginning.

And that is how Teonie  became a hero.

The kidnappers

Where is he?” shouted the kidnapper Callum and Casey zoomed into the broken wardrobe.Suddenly, the kidnappers booted the door down. Without a sound, the kidnappers crept in.

It was only half an  hour ago when sent me to the shop to get some tea bags. O the way to the shops I took a short cut that’s were I saw him. I broke through the back. “I’m the son of Ronaldo.” There we were dangling from the guttering sliding down the I reached the ground we sprinted home. “I see you got my tea bags”. said mum in a sarcastic voice and rolling her eyes. Ten minutes later Ronaldo arrived he thanked us by giving us 10,ooo pounds and a big diner. Later that night, I was a hero in the news paper.



bubble gum

One bubbly day, I was happily bouncing on the jelly like a cockroach trying to jump to space while he was bouncing, he got a message from princess bubble lady.


The letter said “Help me a terrible going to happen!!!!!!!!!! Came to the fire place and save me!! See ya” from princess bubble lady.


So I ran as fast as a cheater to the fire place to save the princess bubble lady I remembered how I got into such a situation so I checked if I’m even going the right way.


So there I was trying to rescue a bubble gum princess I finally found her she told my she has some money for me because I recued her.

We had to smash the lava widows and then we got home.

Finally she gave me lots of money and diamonds then she left to her castle and I will never forget this moment.



The old house

“Catch her!” The dangerous man demanded furiously, whilst stomping around the castle like a lion. My legs were shaking and sweat pored down my head. What did I do to deserve this nightmare !

All of a sudden , the decrepit door was smashed down. The light glow  on me . The torch was held by a strange shadow. Terrified to move a bone , my hart beated as fast as a woodpecker. With a sigh of relief , the light slowly disappeared.  While I was trying not to make a sound , I was trying to remember how I got into this disaster in the first place.

It had only been 45 minutes ago when mum had sent me to nans to get a mothers day present for her . While I was waiting for the cars to go past , I saw it . A girl hiding from a huge man, she  mouthed a word and the word was HELP. I went over there to take a further look at what was happing .

So there I was, hiding behind a silver vast statue trying to save a terrified little girls. As I tiptoed quietly out of the room, I looked through a little hole in the door , She was curled up into a curler ball hid behind a wooden chair . She told me that she was the princesses daughter Lizzy and about the ransom on her head . Using our cunning minds , we carefully crept down stairs and quickly  crawled through a hidden tunnel and ran into the woods . I cant believe I just did that.

3o tiring minutes later, we arrived at mums. “So Amy, were the present , I’ve been waiting for ages “mum said “I’m sorry its my fault your amazing daughter saved me from some bad guys. “Lizzy replied. 15 minutes later, Lizzy’s mum arrived in a posh car and thanked Amy. She awarded her with the badge of honer . The next day , there I was on the news . A HERO !


By Amy mcdonnell


“Get him!” I heard someone shout from a distance I hid because I thought they were going to come here so I hid under an old bed. Would I ever get out? I was shaking.

Suddenly, the door slowly opened, I could here footsteps coming closer and closer. I could see someone looking around for me. I could feel myself sweating, the door closed and I saw him leave. I said to myself “how did I get into such a situation?”

It had only been 30 minutes ago when mum told me to go to the shops to get some bread to make some breakfast. When I walked to the shops it was then when I saw it. It was then when I wanted to go home but I could not because someone was behind me.

So there I was, hiding under a bed trying to escape but I was trying to save the trapped girl but I was to scared. I had no choice. I looked through a tiny keyhole. I saw her.  “i cant belive I did it, I was so brave.” I said to myself, my parents were not happy with me.

20 minutes later, I rescued her I took her back home and then again I went back to the shops, bought the bread, went safely back home and lived happily ever after.

A girl who turned into a hero- by Megan

“Lets asks her where she is from or she wouldn’t get out!” I heard someone screech whilst charging upstairs angrily. Petrified, I hid inside an antique cupboard. Trying to stop my breathing. My legs were shaking.


Suddenly, the rusty decrepit door was kicked down. I saw something flicker in the candlelight held by a shadow. Terrified, to move my hear was thumping like a bass drum. With a sigh of relief I could see the light move further away.


It had been half an hour ago, when my sister told me to go home from my friends. While I was waiting for the green man at the pedestrian crossing I saw it a girl mouthing a word and the word was HELP.


That’s how it happened I sneakily went through a broken door and found her. She only just finished telling me that she is related to royalty and about the ransom money.


30 minutes later, I got home from my friends disappointingly . My mum said” why were you late Leah? Why are you in such a mess?” Whilst eyeing me suspiciously. The next hour Leah’s dad arrived and took us all for a big meal. A hero.

The shadow of the park

Late at night, lightning struck the rusty swings. Rain flooded the park. Thomas crouched in the darkness hiding. What was he doing?

Suddenly, it stopped raining. Thomas carefully peeked around the park but then a strangely familiar shadow appeared. Who could it be?

Thoughtlessly, Thomas backed away from the shadow and desperately dived for the benches. Looking around, Thomas carefully peeked at the slides spotting the shadow glaring right at him. Thomas felt like this park would become a graveyard.

Suddenly, Thomas rubbed his eyes in disbelief. He glared at the petrifying sight of the shadow leaping closer and closer. Thomas crouched as still as stone. What could he do now?

Terrified of the shadow, the fear got the better of Thomas. He recklessly dashed as fast as he could and leapt over a bin and hoped for the best. Heart thumping, Thomas was finally safe, for now…..

Facts about Mayan Civilization- by Megan

I am going to tell you some facts about Mayan Civilization

  1. The Mayan’s lived in Mexico
  2. The most important food that the Maya ate was maize, which is a vegetable like corn. They made all types of food from maize including tortillas, porridge, and even drinks. Other staple crops included beans, squash, and chilies. For meat the Maya ate fish, deer, ducks, and turkey.
  3. Mayan women traditionally wear traje, which is a combination of a skillfully woven, multicolored blouse called a huipil of a corte, a woven wraparound skirt that reaches to the ankles, and is held together by faja (sash) at the waist
  4. Kinich Ahau was also know by the name Ah Xoc Kin, who was associated with poetry and music. The Maize god is representative of the ripe grain which was the base of the Mayan agriculture. In certain areas of Mesoamerica, like Yucatan, the Maize god is combined with the god of flora, Yumil Kaxob

I hope you learned alot about the mayan civlization

Long ago in ancient Chiradon, there once lived a young hero called Hussainious. Sadly, his parents were brutally murdered by the evil Stingclaw. Hussainious was devastated and vowed to seek revenge.

The Stingclaw was a vile creature with fifteen dragon heads, a spiders body and a lion for a tail. With it’s big, poisonous claws, this monster was legendary. Although Hussainious was a brave man, he didn’t know how to conquer this destructive beast but his brother recommended to go to mount Olympus to ask the great god Apollo for advice.

A few days later, Hussainious found Apollo. “The Stingclaw killed my family, and ruined my life! please help me seek revenge,” begged Hussainious. “you have stated your business , it would be in my honour to help.” Replied Apollo in  voice which demanded respect. Apollo told Hussainious about the Stingclaw’s weak spot in the 9th head. Then Apollo then gave Hussainious a fire staff, to burn the Stingclaw’s head, some crystal armour, to avoid the Stingclaw’s poison and a potion of swiftness. This potion allows the user to run faster than the speed of light. Hussainious thanked Apollo and set off on his terrifying journey.

After many hard days of travelling, Hussainious found the cave which was the domain of the monster. Heart pounding like a drum, Hussainious entered the cave with the fire staff leading the way. Quick as a flash, the Stingclaw leaped straight at Hussainious and tried biting him. Luckily, the crystal armour blocked out the effect and gave Hussainious a chance to attack. When Apollo attack the Stingclaw it let out a ferocious roar and fell to the floor. The monster was dead at last.

About what I do at school-Megan


At school Mr Frost our teacher reads the whole class a bit of the witches and it’s really fun to listen to. At school on Friday we have a bit of a busy day we have to do spelling test, maths test, multipaction grid, maths whizzards, Assembly, Literacy, Maths and some other stuff. At home I sometimes watch TV then I play with my dog. My dog is cute, adorable, good. Also, my dog is a Jack Russell. He is brown and white. I really like playing with my dog. Everyday, I go on the blog and see new posts and comment. I really like Mr Frost being our teacher and Miss Eastwood, Miss Amin and Mr Farell being our TA’s. I sometimes play Minecraft. My favorite sport is rugby, also I like football a little bit. The sport I’m good at is Basketball, Netball and Rugby but also I am a little bit good at football. At school the people I play with are Amy N, Yasameen, Destiny, Aj, Ola, Hannah and sometimes a new boy called Aleks. I sometimes play basketball  and Aleks ask “can I play” I say “yes”. When we was playing basketball we had a good game it was really fun and we both worked hard. Today I played Basketball with Aleks. Aleks team got 15 aand my team got 2 I through the ball through the net when it was just lineup time but we was being strict so we both said “that don’t count”. Also some of the Year 3s played and it was a really fun and hard game because we were being strict. Also it was hard because whenever I passed the ball to Amy N, Aleks jumped up and got the ball but luckily he was trying to throw it to a Year 3 child on his team I quickly jumped up and got the ball then I threw it in the hoop! When I threw the ball in the hoop when it was just lineup time I didn’t moan. I said “never mind” and I didn’t really care! Aleks nearly threw the ball at my head when he was passing the ball to a year 3 child! Luckily he never and that was how I got the ball of him! I was glad he never through the ball at my head!!!! Luckily, the ball never went over the fence! Whilst, we were playing I was trying to get the ball but I nearly hit my head. We was playing basketball on the AstroTurf near the back basketball net. Also, I nearly slipped over.

If you want know more or ask questions please do and I will answer them!

Bye for now!!!

Malala had no education and did not go to school because where she lived only men had a education and girls had no jobs and had to stay and clean. Instead of cleaning up, Malala always practised her maths in her brothers books.

Malala is best known for surviving being shot in the head and fighting for her rights. Malala was awarded the great Nobel peace prize.

about me

Hi my name is harvey and I like football and playing minecraft. I also like playing Lego.I am really good at building Lego.


I’m am Arthur and I am writing about what I did for football today. when I played the people in my class who wanted to play played year 3 in the first half it was 1-1 then at the next second  Devonta scored the next half went quickly in the last 10 seconds my friend Tristan crossed it (It was a corner though) we had his little brother in year three chested it and I volleyed it and Kyran  was not on guard so I scored when I was doing my calibration lots of people  grabbed me on my team and lifted me a little after that I did a front flip. I do these kind of things evry day I stated playing well since reception I think that it was all to do with when I became faster I did a lot of racing all around my old school. I think this school is better. 🙂

The Drowning Girls

“Bella don’t you dare going near the pond” announced auntie Teala my auntie always looked out for me to much. After, gymnastics we came back home and slipped out through the window . I still can’t believe that my auntie thought that I played dolls with Molly. But we had to be quick because we only had hour. Because every hour auntie Teala checked on us if we were alright .

wile we were walking past that ancient , creepy museum that was shut down for years. It really didn’t take that long to get there. When we finally got there, we started to play Frisbee for quite a long time. Later on, the weather started to grumble and the clouds were grey and you could feel drops of  rain. Me and Molly decided to go under a humongous tree but unfortunately the wind was so strong that the frizbee slid away and we chased after it.

But suddenly we tripped over and unfortunately fell into that old ,dirty ,stinky pond. “what are we going to do?” asked Molly in a frighten voice and wide open eyes. “I don’t know” replied Bella. Wile trying  to swim but unluckily it didn’t work.

But before they drowned Bella found a long branch and grabbed onto it Molly caught Bella’s leg. And they happily got out and felt so joyful like never they didn’t even have a word to describe how happy we felt. So they decided to go home.

When they came back home Bella’s auntie was so mad and cross than ever “where were you stupid girl I was about to call the police!” shouted auntie Teala. Always listen to your parents if you don’t want to be grounded for two months and I will never forget this important lesson.

The warehouse

“Right Jack, don’t go playing down by the abandoned   warehouse “my mum warned me whilst cooking my dinner worriedly. ” The pipes are rickety or they’ll fall on you,” my mum worries to much. She thought I was at a football tournament with Jeff. The warehouse is where I always go after school and weekends.

The warehouse was at the end of minecraft road past the creepy museum. It was rickety and abandoned the warehouse. Inside it was like as damp as a mossy foggy swamp on the edge of a deep smelly lake. Up on the roof of the warehouse dangled rusty bars from the ceiling It sounded like birds tweeting as loud as a Ferrari’s engine. There was a dead fox with a big red hole in it’s throat with red and white crunchy bones hanging out. We usually played monkey bars with the rust old pipes.

That cursed evening, hail stones lashed down through thee cracks in the roof and on the metal bars. Me and Jeff ran as fast as a henisi venom gt at full speed to a rickety wooden bench on the opposite side of the room to the door. Without a warning, the pipes fell from the roof and the wooden roof cracked to pieces. That moment we both knew that we were trapped…

Jeff’s heart was beating as fast as a cheetah at full speed after a zebra. “what should we do!” Jeff exclaimed with fear.” we will have to parcore our way out,” I replied. so we did we parcored [ jumped] up the pipes and out onto the path. we both done the secret hand shake in relief.

Eventually after being trapped, we got home and of course mum was furious. “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN” mum exclaimed to our faces.”so a branch nearly fell on you” my mum asked us giving the evils. my mum was right. she’d been from when I was born.

The Building site

Dave and Jack were at the town playing it. When Dave was running away from Jack. And when Jack got to the buildings he thought that it was magic? suddenly Dave didn’t believe it at all. Dave told Jack to check the machines because they are cool I nodded and Jack said come on Dave okay but am not sure I said. What’s wrong said Jack. Come on where wasting are time I think we shall tell are parents if they let us. Oh come on we don’t want to nodded Jack. but…but…uh okay. Suddenly I heard the mans shouting at me and Jack? they said get out now. Or we will crush you both Okay we said run where do you think you going little boys were 9 year old boys uh okay.get them. Finally we went home. Dad was very angry staring at us he said go and wash your clothes now okay I nodded but don’t shout SHUT UP just go and  wash your clothes okay I will.

the abandoned church

“Now now Izzy don’t go playing by the abandoned church or mum will kill you”  my sister said as she was washing up  ” okay “  I said . I whispered to my self “ I will” oh yes don’t be home after 4 o’clock  or no McDonalds. Did I listen? No I didn’t.


The creepy old abandoned church made noises like” oooooooooooooooooo” I wasn’t scared one bit Amelia was scared you could tell at way she look pure white like  paper. I thought she was going to faint.


We went in and played hide and seek . daft really , but it was fun. I loved it when I was hiding I found a giant cupboard. I   went in . it was stiff to open I saw a ghost I tried to get out I couldn’t get out .

I kicked and kicked I would never get out . I carried on I got out . I found Amelia and we ran home.

When we got home we had half an hour to get ready to go to McDonald’s my went mad ” mums going to kill me” ” You’re so messy!” my sister shouted at me.   

                                                                                        THE END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The warehouse

Now Amy, please don’t go near the warehouse, I cant have you getting hurt.” I lived with my auntie because  my parents died. She warned me day after day after.


The unknown warehouse was a 1 mile bike ride away. Little did she know that was exactly  where I went on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Today was a boring Sunday so me and Keya went to the warehouse.


We had to be careful because every hour bits fell down. Suddenly, I heard a noise and the support bits fell down, we slithered like snakes and stood up like zombies rising from dead.We went into the back room ,it was a old computer room.


We kicked the back window and it didn’t work so with all my mighty power ,but shaking a bit with a smile, I kicked it and it smashed. We got our bike and set of for 6:00.


When we got home it was 7:00 and we had missed dinner. My auntie answered the door and said calmly “Where have you been?”

“We were out side.” I answered.

“Ill warm your dinner up “

“Thanks” “ Ill always listen to you” I said

The Junkyard

“Now Harvey don’t go playing in the junkyard. ” My dad worried to much. Did I listen? of course not. He really fort I was doing my homework with Devonta.

It was 30 minute bike ride to the junkyard. Most days after school that was straight where I went.Most of the time me and Devonta just played it.

I ran into  the back of lorry and suddenly I got stuck in the back of the lorry and Devonta got stuck under. I tried running out. It was useless. luckly there was a sleg hammer and I smasht open the side of the lorry and ran home.

My dad was furious “you could of got killed” Harvey had lunt his leson.







The Junkyard

“Now Ruby don’t go playing with Harvey in the junkyard!”, my mum had warned me thosens of times”.”You’ll get yourself hurt. “Did I listen ?of course I didn’t.Most days after detention that was exactly were I went. My mum actually thought that I went round Harvey’s house straight after detention.My mum cares about me to mutch .Ive still not fogoten about the time when she enbarest me infrunt of my freins when she wount stop hugging me.

The junkyard was about 2 blocks down the road past a gang of boys and girls .When me and Harvey got to the junkyard full of cars that had orange rust like autum leaves. It smell like an old tip but full of glass.Harvey and me was pretending to drive cars.That foggy night,lightning came. It had been like that all night.The dogs were barking loudly scratching the wooden door. Then it began to rain  as the rain came, me and Harvey were still at the junkyard.

Suddenly, a huge struck of lightning came crashing down.So me and Harvey jumped into a green rotten car as the rain stopped ,the doors became rusted they count get out they were trapped….. my heart was beating fast Harvey as scared “what if were stuck in here forever” I said ” just keep on kicking the door and it might come open”. So we kicked and kicked until the door came open.

We saw a button so we pressed it and the sky light came open so we climbed out.

Two hours later,I reached my house as I walked in my mum said in dissepiment “where have you been? its past your bed time hour and you’ve missed your supper ,So you got chased by a robber and got lost “she asked. I should have listened to my mum all along.

The warehouse

“Now Jay don’t go playing by the warehouse!. you could hurt yourself or the building could fall on you!” My menacing dad cared for me to much. He actually thought I was at football practice with Ray but I planned to meet him at the warehouse. It was full of graffiti but it was are special place. All we did was use graffiti on the wall.

When we finished, we  found some apple juice and we drank it all. Then we threw it away. Then, we found a radio and heard that there was a hurricane so we ran I hid in a box but Ray hid in the old rusty oven.

Ray’s heart was beating as fast as a meglaldon chasing a great white shark. I went to the door locked…Ray kicked the door but it didn’t open.

Then, I found a crowbar. Then, I smashed the lock on the door and then we ran and fist pumped the air.

Of Couse wen I got home, my dad was furious “Where have you been?. You could have been taken away!” He shouted like he had never shouted before. I will never go there again.




The Warehouse

“Now Leo don’t go playing at the warehouse “my dad had warned me whilst glaring at me suspiciously. He thought I was at Adams he needs to give me more attention.

If you were going to the warehouse you would have to go though the empty road then go through bushes and nettles. In side the warehouse there were holes  and graffiti it was covered with poison ivy and the roof was as weak as dinosaur bones the girders barely stood  up. Me and Adam played hide and seek but we played really carefully.

That afternoon a storm had been lashing  Adam brought some card games so we played that. All of a sudden, there was a massive smash the roof feel on to the girders fell as well. Luckily we did not get hurt because we were in a hole. We were as scared as a mouse almost getting squished by a witch.

Coincidently we found a saw lying on the floor so we cut are way out but the door was jammed. a few seconds later  the door flew open  because of the wind so me and Adam bolted out we  were happy and relived but we also felt happy to be alive.

It took us 20 minuets to get home when I opened the door my dad was there “you irresponsible boy you could have lost your life.” My dad said angrily “so you say there was a mad driver and a tree almost grazed you” I nodded slowly “Your lucky it only grazed you” I did not dare to look at him. From that day on I never went anywhere dangerous again.

The graveyard

“Now Kiai don’t go to the graveyard or you’ll be buried alive!” My dad said glaring at me suspiciously. Blah blah blah my dad always said that sort of thing. Last time he said don’t go to the abandoned park but I got in and out of the place like a knife through butter.

All my dad cared about was me, him and football as long as I didn’t disturb him I could go wherever I  want. But he actually thought I was doing my project even when I didn’t have one. Little did he know the graveyard was exactly where I planned to me my friend Bryan. Most days after school went straight to the spooky place.

the graveyard was a place was about 1 mile away to Bryan’s house then to swamp pit. Swamp pit was place with old tyres floating feebly on  top of it. then you’d arrive at the grave yard a place of dead corpses, rats and worst of all grave robbers.

that night a storm rolled in like a bowling ball. Me and Bryan took cover under a left out umbrella. Bang bh bh bh bh bang! As if Bryan could read my mind we both dived.

we got up to see we had been confronted by the grave robbers and we had traps on either side of us. We were trapped like mice. Quickly Bryan went to call the police but the grave robbers were already on it. Luckily when they were busy breaking Bryan’s phone I called the police. As soon as they saw me they ran for it.

Stupidly, when making their get away, they fell into one of their own traps. Wee! woo! wee! woo! When the police arrived we explained everything to them even the tiny details.” Stay here while we call your parents.” one officer said whilst picking up his phone. After a couple miserable hours playing my, phone we managed to get to our homes.

Obviously when I got home my dad was disappointed in me. “what did I tell you?,” my dad said.”not to go” I said avoiding his icy stare. “So a robber black mailed you into going?”

“yes” I said. Now I was even more disappointed in me and I always listened to him from then on.




The dangerous river

One dangerous day I wanted to go to the river with my friend called Sarah and my mum wouldn’t let me so I told her “mum I am going over Sarah house to play I will  be back at 1;00 ok”. So mum said “ok bye”. when I went over to Sarah house I said “do you want to go to the river and Sarah said” ok”.  so we went to the and we saw a fish and we tried to catch it but we fell.


then just out the corner of my eye I saw a big brown branch so we pulled are self out and we went back to Sarah house and we played and I was late for dinner so I went home. when I got home mum was furious at me she said “You sneaked out of Sarah house is my daughter here I forgot she was gone somewhere WHY DID YOU GO TO THE RIVER SARAH YOU COULD OF DIED.


I am grounded for 5 weeks but daisy can stay in her bedroom for a really long day  and that is the end of my story THE END

The Junkyard

“Now James don’t go playing by the junkyard . You could get hurt “exclaimed uncle John whilst pointing his crumbly finger. My uncle had warned me often enough. Did I listen? “Of course I didn’t !” Uncle John though I was helping Lily do her homework but actually I was at the junkyard. Every day after school we dashed there just to muck about.

The junkyard was filled with louds of rusty cars along the uncared grass with glass smothered across  it. The crane was as dirty as a rubbish tip and it smelt as bad as a rubbish bin. It was not a nice place to be at but we went. We loved to play games their.

Later that day, a storm raged it was as loud as a herd of elephants stomping. We dashed to the boot of a car and played Simon said  just so we don’t get bored. Suddenly, the car boot slammed quickly. “We are trapped how are we going to get out the door wont open.” “It stuck ” shouted Lily. “We are going to die in her if we don’t get out soon.”

They pushed and squeezed trying to get out. James pushed Lily in-between the chairs just so she could open the boot. Finally she was out and relief that she got out. She opened the boot to save James “We did it James, were out.”

After a 4 hour walk down muggy road, we were eventually home. ” were have you been for the last 5 hours!” ” And why are you’re  clothes so dirty” “So you fell in a muddy puddle and got stuck.” Guiltily saying yes. “Adlest  you re ok that’s the man thing” He was right he was right from the start. “I will always listen to my uncle.

Horrible Histories – Diary Entries

The Slippery Waterfall

“Now Emma don’t go near the Waterfall with Anna because you might fall and go to the Hospital. “My dad had warned me enough so I am annoyed” said Emma. My dad thought that I was doing my Homework with Anna but instead I went near the Waterfall.

After that, the stones got a little slippery, when it got really slippery me and Anna decided to play a game. But then Anna tripped over.

When Anna tripped over Emma was really worried so Emma quickly ran down the stone stairs to quickly save Anna. But when Emma saved Anna she was shocked because she had no idea what just happened right now.

She didn’t know what happened because when she fell she had her eyes closed and when Anna wock up she had know idea what happened but she was socking wet like she was swimming in the sea for 2 hours. So Anna and Emma quickly ran home.

15 mins  later, they got home and Emma’s dad was furious like a dragon. Emma said “im  sorry dad I know I should been doing my Homework right now” and then Emma’s dad said “so you got hit by a tree.” But then Anna said “I m sorry I will never do it again. But I learned my lesson.” and they both said “we will always listen to your warnings.

The Warehouse

“Now Emma don’t go  playing near the warehouse you can brake a bone and go to hospital.” My dad worried too much. Did I listen  NO! I went there everyday with my friend Destiny after school dad thought I was doing ballet in the back garden. Silly he is.

After school, I went to get Destiny and we went to the warehouse. At the warehouse in the grass there was a dead fox with a hole ain it’s through and bones hanging got with green moss on the bones. The wall looked like it was going to fall down on us. There was cracks in the floor too.

The wall was shacking and we stopped playing it just encase we hit the wall and fall  and a brick fell on my led and it was painful.

Destiny hands was shaking like there was 20,000 ice cubes in  her hands. “Destiny is going to be ok. can you help me get this brick off my leg. I said thank you Destiny.

After we got home, my dad said “so, a bird attacked you?” I bodied in shame. My dad was mad. I should of listen to my dad from the start.

The End!

The building site

“Now Zain, don’t go playing by the Building site!” shouted Mr Frost he often warns me so much and he always kept an eye out on me. He thought I was doing my art project with Tristan little did he know me and Tristan just went to the building site anyway.

The Building site was a thirty minute walk away past the rickety ancient haunted house black and grey dust sprays everywhere Tristan accidently pulled a screw driver and the metal bars just clasped down.

“What are we going to do now !” I shouted “earlier on I found a chainsaw right next to your foot ” I asked politely so then Tristan quickly grabbed it and gave it to me “Come on lets get out of  here ” I excitedly said then we made our way through the rusted bars.

After a few tired days later, we eventually and safely arrived back to the Ridgeway Mr Frost was like a volcano “You naughty boy I was worried you had been lost ” Mr Frost quivered with fear and shouted with hypnotising eyes “So a cat nearly scratched you?” asked Mr Frost “yep a cat nearly scratched me” I worriedly said.

The abandoned warehouse

“Don’t go playing near the abandoned warehouse,” my mum said often enough but did I listen? No I didn’t. the warehouse was a perfect base for me and my friend Arthur. Sad really but my mum thought I was doing my homework at Arthur’s house but the warehouse was were I met him.

The warehouse was a 10 minute bike ride and was near a demolished museum. Inside there was a shipping crate filled with guns. Arthur and I always ignored the guns and I played a fun game called tag-rugby. Creaking sounds echoed throughout the hall.

That day, a storm raged, it had been brewing all day. While me and Arthur were playing tag-rugby  tremendous CRACK!! occurred. Me and Arthur dived for the shipping crate whilst the warehouse’s ceiling collapsed write on top of us. I hopped that the crate didn’t burst open. “what are we going to do now?” Arthur sobbed while rubbing his tears.

The river

“Don’t go playing near the river” my mum had warned me often enough. “It’s dangerous you will get yourself drowned” I still remember when she told me not to play near the level crossing incase I get hit by a train. Of course I was younger then. Emma has blonde hair and Keya her friend has brown hair.

On the weekend I went to the river and met Keya there. The river is mossy, mouldy and smelly. At the river it’s deserted because it’s Christmas day. Keya and me get bored and play athletes. Keya and me fall into the river. We get lonely.

Keya and me try to dig a hole but we can’t so we ty to find a stick. We get out “Phew we never drowned” said Emma. “It’s time for me to go home” said Keya.

Keya and Emma try to go home but they go a different way what’s longer. They start to moan. ” Oh no i’m 1 hour late” said Keya. “Don’t worry” said Emma.

They get home. “I’m not made of money! They were expensive clothes!” mum glared at me suspiciously. Mum was right from the start.
