Left Behind

The sun is going down. The pirates woke up. They went travelling, suddenly she fell off. She went to grab the ladder, she fell on the ground. "Help me, don't leave me. Someone help me" she called. But she fell in a mud puddle. Her dress got muddy and dirty. How is the ship flying? She thought she could make another ship, but she can't. Her ship just floated on the water. She made a fire before the sun set. Then the sun went down. Her heart was beating faster and faster. Suddenly light came out of the sky. The ship was still flying. She could see her parents and her friends on the ship. The pirates took her parents to the dungeon. She tried to escape but she couldn't do it. She had the keys and she got out and locked the pirates in. She unlocked the doors for her family and friends. Everyone lived happily ever after.

The Ship

Lydia woke up wondering where she was! A place with mud, a pond and hills. The air was as brown as cocoa. "I wonder why my family is up there and I am down here?" she thought to herself. She thought that maybe when she had fallen asleep, she might have fallen off the ship. She ran as fast as she could to the ladder gliding in the wind. Lydia ran faster than the wind and she caught the ladder and climbed up. When she got up she couldn't see because it was night. Suddenly she could hear voices that sounded like her family. She ran to them and they were so proud to see her. They went back safely.

The Terrible Night.

It was a cold, wet night. Samantha was running for a ship that she had been pushed off by a guard! She was jumping for the ladder but the ship went faster and faster, then it went higher and higher. The ship disappeared into the smoke smothered stars. Now all she had were the mountains for company. "I won't give up," she thought as she stumbled to the ground. As the days slowly went by she was starving to death.
Meanwhile, the maid was in Princess Samantha's room but it was empty. Why was it empty? The maid barged into the Captain's den and told him the whole story.
Samantha climbed to the tallest mountain and found a mound of magic apples and ate one. I wish I could go home she thought. Suddenly she whizzed home! Home sweet home.
By Samantha

Left Behind

It was a very dark night. A girl named June woke up on the top of a mountain. A ship had left her behind. "Oh no!" said June. But she thought, don't give up. Then she saw an apple lying on the ground. She went and picked it up. She bit into it, crunch went the apple. After what seemed like hours, she spied her ship. She climbed aboard and lived in luxury.
By Nicholas

Ghost Pirates

It was a cold night and a girl named Jules was running to the ship because it was the only safe place to live in. She slipped over and cried. All she could see was more mud. Her dress was stained very badly, mud all over it. The ship was gone! She was very afraid of the dark. She ran and ran until she got tired from running. She was trying to find the ship. Jules discovered a little land. There were other people there. She was starving, she smelt something nice. It was chicken and homemade chips. She ran to the food stand. She was poor, she got it for free. She found the ship and snuck in. It was nighttime. She gave the ghost pirates a fright and they never did that again. The ghost pirates were her slaves and they lived happily ever after.

Left Behind

It was a cold and dark, lonely night. Sarah shouted, "Mum, come back, I miss you already! Captain Smee stole you in the night," Sarah ran but mud went everywhere. The mud was soggy and sticky. Captain Smee sailed away as fast as lightning. Sarah didn't give up. Captain Smee kept sailing as fast as he could. Mum jumped off the ship quietly and got on the ladder and climbed down. Captain Smee was angry. He couldn't go back because he was going too fast. He shouted, "I will have revenge. Captain Smee and all of the other pirates will be back!"
By Tyson

Left Behind

A cold, scary night, a girl named Daisy was running in a muddy place. She was covered in mud and she was running as fast as she could. The ship was flying away. She shouted but no one could hear her. Her body was trembling. She felt sick and her feet were tired. She could hardly run anymore because the sodden ground was too muddy. Her arms are more tired than her legs. The ship went higher and higher to the sky. She was too late, the ship went away. Her tears ran down like rain drops from the sky. She was not going to give up.
By Hassan

Left Behind

She fell to the stony ground next to some mountains. Mud stained her skirt. The ship was leaving her behind. She made herself get up. "Come back," she cried as she ran for the ship. But Captain Dread didn't hear because he lost his hearing aid. He steered the Reaver away. A storm was approaching. She had to find shelter. A cave was nearby. She heard noises but she thought it was the wind. When she was asleep Hobb came and took her to Hobb's Cave. "Where am I?" she asked. "Quiet human" said the Hobb. She whacked the Hobb. The Hobb used a spell and she turned into a Hobb.
By Zeno

Left Behind

It was dark. Hannah could not see anything. She felt coldness through her body. She called to the ship but they did not listen to her. They went away. They left her behind on Mars. There was no food to eat. She called " Mum, dad, come back! Help!" If they do not come back she will have to stay there forever.
By Jasnoor

Left Behind

"Help" the little girl shouted. "You can't leave me behind." She got her dress all muddy running to the ship. She was barging through the howling woods. She held her dress up and started to run as fast as an ostrich. But the ship was flying as fast as an eagle. She couldn't breathe because the yellow dust was getting in her sore and dry throat. She almost lost her voice because she was yelling too much. Her family couldn't hear her. She shouted to her family, "Mum! Dad!" They didn't hear her. They kept going getting smaller and smaller.
By Dezyre

Left Behind

It was a cold frosty nite until Anna fell off the ship. She fell into the dark chocolate mud. She was wet and sticky. She was alone. Her heart was beating five times faster. Tears went down Anna's face like fpouring rain.
by Tau

Left Behind

It was cold and dark. She woke up. Anna was cold. She had no food or shelter. Anna climbed the top of the tallest mountain and saw the magic apples. The black dust made her eyes water. Anna ate an apple and wished that she was home. Suddenly it happened.

Wednesday 31 August.

On the day of the operetta I will be scared on the stage by everyone. I have to say a bunch of words. The sasa has a lot of actions. I will be scared when I have to do the sasa. I like the name of the Operetta. I thought that everyone liked it to. Mum can't wait until she can come to the Operetta. We are learning to be fantastic. Every class has a show. "I think that room 16 show is the bomb and fabulous." My clothes are colourful and fantastic and all of them are. The hall is humongous and that is why everyone is doing awesome.

Fathers Day

On Father's Day I am going to give him a special card that I have being planing for a week or two. I am making it circled with a bit of string or ribbon around it. I am going to give it to him on the right time and the right day, nothing will stop me. Nothing! Not even my sisters, Charlotte and Lara. On Father's Day I am going to make it a very special day for him. I am not going to storm off like I always do because of my sisters Charlotte and Lara!
