Coming Home by Bobby G

One Icy cold day on Christmas eve there was a damp isolated old broken shed. Suddenly a robin popped his head out of an old broken teapot. That robin was me. I flew and looked in the distance and saw trees. I must go to get my friend. I took off flapping my wings then gliding it was cold and Icy.

I was cold and numb I could not feel my feet and my wings. It was cold black and grey and it was lightning crash! Bang! The lightning went I was exhausted.  I was hungry I looked but I could not find a worm not even one! Suddenly I saw a hole. I went in there to get shelter but then I saw a black nose it was a ferret! I fled away.

I was flying about the mountains and the trees. I was freezing I like an ice cube. The cold breeze was blowing against me. Suddenly I saw a hawk staring at me with his beady eyes looking at me. Then it flew off with a bang. So close I had to twist and turn to get away. I was safe that was a close one.

I am under a rock I am safe my cold feet on the green grass. I was waiting for the sky to calm down then I was off with a flash. I was flying in the breeze. I saw a lighthouse the light was as bright as the sun. Oh no a giant storm. Crash! Bang! It was like a laser crashing on the sea bed I was horrified.

I saw an isolated boat on the deep dark sea. The dark clouds gathering together. The white raging sea. There was a boat I was relieved I flew to the boat. Suddenly a monstrous wave hit me like a car. I was sliding across the hollow wooden floor. Stomp a man with a big white beard scooped me up and he said rest little robin rest.  Will I die? Will I make it?

The next day the man opened the box and the man fed me. I got up and flew away. I will not give up. I will get there. I was flying above the Icy cold deep sea I saw a fish. I was flying for a long time. Where is the village? I think I see the house.At last I am home but she’s not there. I whistled. There she is at last. She said “I was worried”. We had our mince pie for Christmas dinner.

Tudor Day – Brooke Pires Year 5

We have been learning about Tudor times and the other week we had a special day in year 5. Some people came into school to teach us fun things that used to happen in Tudor times.

We learnt about what happened in a Tudor court room and what would happen if you stole a cloak. The best thing  that we got to do was play a game where we rolled a dice and if you got a 7 you give wedding present by putting a shell on, if you rolled a 2 you got everything on the board except the wedding presents. If you got 12 you get everything on the board even the wedding presents and you win the game and the game would be over. We played twice but i didn’t win.

We did a play on Francis Drake and i had to play an instrument that looked like a french horn.

We all had so much fun and we got to dress up n Tudor clothes. I wish we could do things like this again.

The Arrival Paragraph Three by Ellis 6T

As the man woke up, he could sense the smell of something weird. As he pulled back his covers he saw it; the snake and mouse creature. He felt a strange tingle and he knew it was his depression. He got dressed and headed into the city. Out of nowhere, he bumped into a young woman who looked kind and friendly so he asked “Where is the nearest boat?,” he asked she didn’t understand him so she gave him her own ticket and he said “Thank you so much.” As he entered the boat he sat down and talked to this woman about the past. As they talked much more, he knew she had a sad,depressing live,lonely,forced and desperate. As he got off the boat, he looked into the distance- he thought he was lucky that he was here.  After the long walk down the steps, he finally arrived at the markets. He looked at his shopping list and was trying to find the bread. After the long search he found it but the creature was scratching a box full of exotic fruits but after eating this fruit he decided to try some more food. After this he was full up and became friends with the shop owner who said “Come back to my house and have tea?” As they arrived at their house, they had a delicious tea had some fun and he laughed for the first time in a while. He left and headed back to his apartment.

Coming Home by Joshua M

One icy cold day on Christmas Eve, I was in the middle of the woods in an abandoned isolated old broken shed. Then I got out of my teapot, it was a rusty unused kettle.

I said “I should go back to my mum and dad” so I went to fly to my mum and dad. I was exhausted, so I dropped on to a big branch looking for food. An hour later, I finished looking for food. I went upon a branch and I was cold and wet. I was very sad, I did not like that day, it was the worst day ever.

Then I found a place to stay in and it looked like it was nice cosy and warm. I went in there and slept in there.

When I woke up, I saw a ferret and it had a wet black nose surrounded by white whiskers. The ferret crept up on me and tried to eat me. Then I felt terrified. I flew away with my heavy wings. I flew over a blanket of snow and through the mountains that looked like a ball of fluff.  I was extremely exhausted. I stopped for a rest. Suddenly, I heard flapping wings behind me. I panicked and fluttered away. When I looked behind me, I realised that I had escaped danger. It was an enormous hawk with a sharp beak and claws.

I stopped under a big rock, sheltering, resting. I am waiting for a peaceful blue sky and the sun shining in my eyes. I am ready to set of to my next location, the next part of my journey. I can see a lighthouse shining bright in the dark onto the blue sea ocean.

The storm came again. Enormous waves in the distance. It was lightening crashing thunder. My wings are very heavy like a stone weight. I felt tired and cold. Suddenly, I can see a boat like an island in the middle of the ocean. A giant monstrous wave hits me. I was out of control, I was swept and rolled along the deck. Drowning! Choking! Will I ever see my home again?

I see big black boots coming towards me, the big hands reaching for me. The hands carefully scooped me up and put me in a box to keep me safe and alive. He gave me some bird food and some bread crumbs.

The next morning, it was a calm and nice day. The man’s hands were freezing and kindly pushed me into the air as he let me go. I’m stronger again, off on my way, I’m going home. My beating wings were flapping as fast as I never did before. I’m nearly there.

Exhausted, I got there. I see my home. When I landed on the round wooden table, I found lovely food but something is missing. Where is she? My heart is beating for her. I’ll call her. Then as quick as a flash she arrived. She asked me “Where were you?”

I told her that I was here and there because I did not want to worry or scare her. Finally, we enjoyed our special Christmas meal together in happiness.

Coming Home by JJ

I was in an abandoned, isolated, old broken shed, in an unused rusty kettle.I popped my head out of the kettle. I must get there. I will get there. I must flap my wings as fast as I can in this cold wasteland. I will be there for my friends and family. I will return.

I feel cold and hungry. I must get there. I will get there through the hailstone and rain. Into a tree I go and feel soaking wet. Can my wings handle this rain? Finally, some shelter to be safe. A ferret with a wet black nose and white shiny whiskers came towards me. “Get out of here” he said. I was scared. I flew away.

I flew over the clouds and a blanket of snow. I must get there. I will get there. I am so tired of flying. I must take a drink but I saw the shadow of a hawk with sharp claws, a pointed beak and wings as long as an eagle. Twirl. Spin. Dodge. The hawk got tired and flew away. Phew that was a close one!

A rock is my shelter whilst I wait for the weather to go away. I must get there. I will get there. I must travel across the sea. I’m ready to go. I start to fly again. Oh no, the weather changes again. Thunder and lightening. Boom! Bam! Wackapow! I do not like this. I am too uncomfortable to fly through this weather. It is cold and my wings are shivering.

This boat will do. A giant wave rolled over me sweeping me along the deck but these giant hands, so big, grabbed me and put me into a warm box. Mmmm, food! Now it was time to go. I am almost there. I’m coming home. Coming home to my family. The fisherman was nice and kind and threw me up, so I can fly again.

I am almost there and the weather is calm. I can see it. I’m finally home but where is she? I must look for her. I see a mince pie and my loved one. I said “hello”. She replied “I missed you”. We ate our mince pie and I am back home. I am happy now with my loved one.
