Week 31 The Guitar by Joe

Lots of popular tourist attractions are old but this attraction is practically new. It is a big guitar but half of it is in the rocks. It’s on a rock beach and it’s getting a lot of attention.

Most of the people that see it are on their holidays. It’s been a year since they put it up. To me it looks like it can take anything. No matter what the weather, it is going down very well with locals and tourists. We saw it again and everybody is proud of it. That just shows how little things make a very big difference to a little town like mine.

Week 31 Mystery Anchor By Colin

I was walking down to the harbor. My first time on a yacht and it could be my last. I strolled down a small bridge to the changing room. I came out in my sailor kit and my peak hat with the marble anchor. I hopped onto the fifty foot yacht that was bobbing in the water. I waited until my crew were on board and then I released the anchor. We could see a storm brewing in the distance but sailed on proudly. Twenty years on, a small boy called John was walking on the beach when he saw a white marble anchor. Now the anchor is a special monument.

Week 31 The Anchor By Adam

I was out on sea going around the world when we saw a statue of an anchor on land! We rowed to the island and took a closer look and there was a red circle around it. Near it there was a beach and we went over to it and made some friends! We stayed on the island for a few days and then we went home. We remembered our friends because we had pictures of them! A few days after we arrived home we saw a ship on the shore. “It was them, it was our friends” I shouted! They moved in with us for a while, then they got a house and we were all happy! The End!

Week 30 Gerald’s Best Day Ever by Liam O

One rainy day in a town on the west coast of Ireland, lived a man who was always sad. He would always look down with a frown. He would never ever leave his house and when he did he wouldn’t interact with anyone. When he did interact with someone it was always his family members. But one day there was a town gathering he didn’t go to (obviously). The people made a plan to make him happy. The plan was to get a comedian and the town used all of their money to buy the best comedian in their local area. The person that was going to call the comedian dropped their phone into the river. After the phone fell into the river Gerald came over to the river. Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing and the people never liked him ever again. THE END.

Week 30 SHARKS by Paul

Sharks are found in all the oceans of the world. Some are fierce meat eaters that rip their pray to shreds, others feed on tiny plants and animals called plankton that drift along in the ocean currents.

Our planet was formed around 4,600 million years ago. The first living creatures appeared roughly 1,200 million years later. Then in 1974, Peter Benchley released JAWS the novel and one year later Universal asked Peter if they could make a movie about this and Peter didn’t mind. So in 1975 ‘Jaws the Movie’ came out. Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing at the shark attacks because it was funny. THE END.

Week 30 Gerald’s First Laugh By Evan

Hi my name is Gerald. I am 8 years old and I live in England. I was born with a special condition that meant that I could not laugh. In 2017, I won an award for not being able to laugh. But I was never allowed to watch things like YouTube or any such websites. But what I hated was whenever I looked out my window, I could see kids making funny jokes that made them laugh. But nothing could make me laugh. One day, my Mom was on YouTube and she wanted to show me a funny video. I watched it very closely and for the first time, Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing. The End.

Week 30 Amazing Amusement by Aidan

‘This is going to be a great day’, I exclaimed, as I walked into Luna Park with my best friend Gerald. ‘What should we go on first?’ asked Gerald, with a smile on his face. ‘Hey Gerald I think we should go on the get out’, I said in a cringe worthy manner. I wondered why but Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing. After that, we ran up to the tsunami ride and watched it go spinning around and around. ‘Gerald do you want to go on that?’ I asked as I pointed towards it. ‘Yes what kind of question is that’, said Gerald as we walked onto the tsunami. This is going to be fun, I thought, as we walked on…

Week 30 The Carnival by Conor H

One Saturday afternoon I was off to the carnival with my friend Gerald. At the carnival we went on everything like the ferris wheel mirror maze.

First we went on the ferris wheel and that was really fun!

Next we into the mirror maze and that was great because we kept on walking into mirrors and hitting our heads off of them.

But the best thing was the obstacle course because Gerald fell on his face and if you are wondering what he went into, it was a pile of mud and Gerald just could not stop laughing at himself.

It was a dark and stormy night. There was a comedian who thought he was funny but he really wasn’t funny. So after a while he began to get angry and bought a book about hypnotism. Then, when he mastered hypnotizing people, he begun his shows again. After just two shows he was the most famous comedian in the world. Everyone went to see him. So one day Gerald and I went and Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing. After a while, he was on the television.

I just knew I wanted to sail. My father’s name is Gerald and he is a very popular sailor. He has sailed all his life and still hasn’t stopped. My mother said he should give me a chance and then Gerald couldn’t stop laughing. So one day, I had the bravery to go out to sea on a boat. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I got too confident and five minutes in, a big wave came flying at me. ‘Aaaaahhhhhhhh’, I shouted…

I still beat him. He kept saying that he wasn’t ready and about how unfair it was. So I challenged him to a rematch. When I beat him in the rematch he started calling me a hacker. So for the rest of the day I had to deal with him calling me that. Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing. The End.

Week 30: Cousins Club: By Dan

It was midday and nearly time for the first cousins club meeting in Gerald’s new tree-house. They were planning to spy on his brother Mack’s base.

Gerald was bringing Nerf guns in case things got messy. At 12:15, Gerald set off for the tree-house. The cousins were already waiting for him when he arrived. They had a quick chat and assembled all their designated possessions.

As Gerald walked to his spot, he heard Mack’s friend shout “Look over there!”. Gerald looked up and saw a finger pointing straight at him.

At that moment, Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing.

Mack emerged tied up. Olaf his cousin had tied him.

It was a victory worth remembering.

We walked into the new aquarium. I went to the unique fish section while Gerald went to get a burger. Suddenly, a miserable little fish jigged past. I followed it to get a closer look. It’s extremely fat nose hung over its sad little mouth. My smile was as wide as an elephant’s bottom. When Gerald came back with his burger, he took one look at my face and then at the fish. Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing!

The next day, I found this person called Gerald and the second I said ‘how is it going?’ he wanted to be friends. Then Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing!

Gerald quickly went to the other side of the aquarium. In there, he saw a funny fish who kept crashing from wall to wall. Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing! He went into a storage room because he was making so much noise. Suddenly, John locked Gerald in. “Who’s laughing now?” chuckled John.

Week 30 Gerald By Joe

Hi, my name is Joe I have a little brother called Gerald. The thing about him is that if he does something funny and people laugh, he starts laughing even though he doesn’t understand.

Right now we are at the zoo. We’ve seen a lot of animals but not enough for him so we stopped to eat. “Are you having good time?”, asked Mum. “Yeah”! responded Gerald. After a minute we saw the monkey box and it was distracting Gerald. Suddenly, a monkey jumped at the window and gave Gerald such a fright that he fell over.

We all started laughing and of course Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing!

When we arrived there it was packed.

We saw a lot of animals before the shark like giraffes zebras cheetahs and bison.

The cheetahs were cool because they were so fast.

When we got to the shark a bird pooped on my head.

Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing.

Unfortunately, he didn’t stop laughing in time to see the shark break the glass behind him……..

Week 29 Restaurant By Conor H

“Yuck” I shout as a greasy cooked giraffe appears on my plate for starters. Eating this was really hard as it was tasteless without any flavouring in it so I put some brown salt on it and it actually tasted quite good.

Now I am waiting for the main course and I think I am going to vomit.

Here is the melted spider on my plate, I am about to throw it over my head but then my dessert comes out and it is ice cream, finally back to normal.

Week 29 The zoo by Aidan

I am going to the zoo today. I can’t wait, it’s going to be so much fun. Tom and Charlie, my closest friends, are coming with me. I got up and went down stairs to have delicious granola. I went back upstairs and got dressed. Then, Tom and Charlie arrived and we got into the car. When we got there, the first thing we saw was a giraffe. Half way through the day, we got a brown chocolate ice-cream and it started to melt. We saw some other animals and drove home. On the way home, we stopped at Burger King and got a greasy burger each and chips with salt. “This is the best day ever” I whispered to myself as I took another massive bite out of the burger.

Week 29 The Brown Giraffe By Ronan

One completely average Monday, my mom told me we were going to the zoo which was normal seeing as we lived right next to it. My mom laid a leaflet out on the table and something caught my eye. There was a picture of a brown giraffe eating grass. Five minutes later, I was at the zoo staring up at the giraffe. It looked happy to see everyone. A zoo keeper slowly approached the giraffe. The giraffe turned around so everyone could see his surprisingly greasy tail. The zookeeper zapped the giraffe and it let out a tiny shriek. Its eyes started to melt as if someone poured salt water on his eyes.

My Worst Then Best Day EVER! by Paul

One day, it was very very hot outside. I went to get a giraffe ice cream in the shop. It was so hot outside that one second later, it melted. I wanted a refund but decided not to ask for one. Then I went to a fast food restaurant called “Claudios” and bought a very greasy pizza with chips that I dipped into salt, vinegar and red sauce. Later that day, my father went to Boston for my cousin’s communion and he has promised me that he will bring me home something nice. THE END

The next day I played on Ps4 with my friends for a couple of hours. Afterwards, I went down for dinner where I got a burger and chips. When I finished my dinner, I went back on my Ps4 and I played some games. After a day of fun, I was exhausted so I went to bed at 9.00 p.m.

John brought his soccer ball so we played a game. Suddenly, the ball went into the rhino cave. I told my teacher that I saw a big brown giraffe. “Look at the penguins Miss” said one of the boys. “I see a train teacher, can we go on it” I pleaded. She said we could. “Look boys, I see monkeys eating bananas!” “Those flamingos are sleeping!” Then, we went to the shop where I bought a brown toy monkey before we went home.

Week 29 Scuba Diving by Dylan

Today, I am going scuba diving for the first time.

I went to Jungle Jills swimwear and saw funny giraffe speedos but I decided on a cool shark scuba suit.

Before we went to the boat, we got McDonalds and I got a greasy Big Mac and salty chips.

I got a weirdly brown milkshake and a McFlurry that melted before I got to even touch it .

When we finally got out to sea, we dived into the water and I was amazed. I saw 4 dolphins and an array of beautifully colored fish.

I saw a huge fish coming towards me. It slammed into me .

I started to bleed……
