Week 35 Hiking By Donagh

Yesterday, my friend and I went hiking over Mount Hillary. We got everything ready and set off for the climb. It was hard and it took over six days but we finally reached the top. We took a break and I said ‘do you want to walk down to that river?’ and he said ‘ok’. Another three days passed and we finally got there. Straight away we wanted to explore and we found a dog but my friend fell into the river and was getting washed away quickly. I was too slow and when I caught up the dog was already in there saving him. When he got out we went home, safe and sound.

Week 34 The hippopotamus by Dylan

Hi my name is Johnny III and I am a hippopotamus. I live in Africa and my family were taken away from me when I was only a kid. I was stealing food to stay alive. I have a big bounty and all the lions are after me. I have been on the run for years.
One day, that was all about to change. Well I have been saying that for years but I am finally fleeing Africa today. I know your probably thinking why would you do that? Is that not where you belong? Well, if you read the story you would know. I ran out but a lion saw me. I bit him so that I could still make my escape. He made a deafening scream that echoed through the cold night. In the end, I escaped and had a happy life. THE END.


Week 34 Surprise by the door! by Joshua

When I arrived home from school, I saw a big box near my front door. I left it there as there was no name on it. When dad came home, he went outside and opened it. Inside there was a RACOON!!! Dad started to panic and tried to pick up the box so he wouldn’t get inside our house. Then the racoon jumped out of the box and Dad fell back onto the chair. The racoon then jumped inside the leaf pile and made a big mess. Eventually, he ran away into the field across the way. I could no longer see him, only the lovely red sky. ‘I wonder what tomorrow will bring?’, asked Dad. ‘Hopefully another racoon’, I replied happily!

The End.

Week 34 The worst school tour by David Hy.

When I walked into the zoo with the rest of my class, I thought to myself, “this is going to be the best school tour ever!” But as you probably guessed from the title, it most certainly wasn’t! I’ll start at the beginning.

First, my friend Leo was bitten by a racoon that escaped (the zoo have a habit of letting animals escape). Then, the racoon went wild and knocked over a chair that had a box of souvenirs in it. Unfortunately, the glasses with hyenas on them fell on the racoon. I’m guessing he couldn’t see because he ran across the leaves that the hedgehogs were hibernating in and woke them all up! Suddenly, the sky turned grey and it started to rain. This really was the worst school tour ever! 

Week 34 The Forest By Tom

The adventure began when my brother and I were staying at my grandparents house for the weekend. We decided to go for a walk with Grandad in the woods after supper. It took him ages to get out of his old chair by the fireplace. As we walked, we could see all the vibrant colours from the day in the sky above, pink and orange glows from the setting sun. Suddenly, something ran out in front of my Grandad’s path. It nearly tripped him. ‘Look!’, said Grandad. ‘It’s a raccoon!’ I had never seen one so close to the house before. When my brother and I got back to the house, we made a plan to catch him in a box with a leaf in it so we put the box out in the woods and went to sleep. In the morning, our work paid off. We caught a raccoon!

Week 34 The little raccoon by Lucas

Once there was a cute raccoon with a leaf in his hands. It was really calm so I took him home. He jumped into a box by the fire with his leaf still in hand. I sat on a chair with a cup of coco.

In the morning when the raccoon awoke, he looked out the window at the morning sky. He took off out the door as soon as I opened it and gathered more leaves. I laughed as it went back in and put them in his box. I guess he is staying and we were friends from then on.



Week 34 The racoon in the box by David Hu.

One day I was sitting in my chair listening to the birds singing and watching a leaf fall from the sky. When suddenly, a stranger dropped a box at my front gate. I opened it and a racoon jumped out, it ran into my house and hid. I looked for it but I couldn’t find it. Then I heard a scraping sound in the attic.  My heart was thumping but I knew I had to check it out. As I slowly opened the hatch to the attic and the stairs came down, I heard a noise I had never heard before…

Week 34 The Racoon Story

There once was a racoon called Fred. He lived up on a tree and he loved to climb. One day, in his home in North America, he decided to go exploring around the forest. He found an old chair that someone must have left behind them in the forest.

It was such a beautiful day. The sky was crystal clear. There wasn’t a cloud in sight. Fred decided to relax on the chair he found to enjoy the sunshine. Suddenly, a leaf fell from a tree and landed on top of Fred. He started playing with the leaf. It tickled his belly and he began to laugh uncontrollably.

In New York there is a huge park. It is called Central Park. In the main part of it, there is a river. One day, there was a small box by the side of the water. No one knew there was a raccoon in the box because no one even bothered checking what was inside. One day, a little boy opened the box and saw the raccoon!

The End.

Week 34 The Virus BY Donagh

Today I was watching television when BREAKING NEWS came up on screen. It was about a new virus that was at the top of the country. A few hours later, the virus came to us but I was outside going for a walk and didn’t know. A couple of minutes passed when a box dropped from a tree and out came a racoon. It bit me in the nose and I started feeling dizzy. There was a chair near by so I sat down and slowly drifted to sleep. A few more hours passed and when I woke up there was a leaf on me. It was night time now and I looked up at the sky and….CRASH!

Week 34 The Jungle by Jayden

One day, I was going on an adventure through the jungle. I came across a box and I said to my friends, ‘let’s go and check this out’. We opened it up and saw different things inside. All of a sudden, a leaf fell from the sky and landed on my head. My friend started laughing as he saw a raccoon pop out of the trees and snatch the box. We chased after it. When the raccoon stopped, we realised that we were after losing our track back. We came across an old chair, a cup and some left overs. We knew someone had to be around. We kept walking until we heard a loud scream for help. It was a man’s voice echoing in the distance. We could see he was tangled up in a long rope. We tried our best to help get him down but we struggled. Suddenly, a woman appeared out of nowhere, laughing. The man had set the trap for the raccoon but he caught himself in it instead!

WK 34 Why me? by Brian OK.

It was my 11th birthday and I was thinking of getting an icecream. Suddenly, a man aproached me and handed over a note. I didn’t know the man but I read the note out of interest. It read ‘I’d run home if I were you before any more damage is done 😂’. I ran back to my house, 22 Maple Leaf Road. As I slowly opened the door, to my horror a raccoon had chewed up the sky box. I tried to sit on a chair but obviously the middle of it was chewed and I fell through. Why oh why me?

Week 34 The box raccoon by Timmy

One day I was looking outside and I saw a box. Little did I know that there was a raccoon in the box. I glanced up at the leaf on the tree and brought  the box inside to have a closer look. I sat on my chair and opened it. A  raccoon popped up and said ‘I will grant you three wishes if you look after  my raccoon for a day and I’ll be back’. We went outside and looked up at the sky and went back in. I went to sleep. The person came early and granted  me my three wishes. THE END.

Week 33 Strange Night By Sam

There was a police man named Bob.

One night he heard two women scream. The deafening screams echoed through the cold night. He got in his car and drove in the direction of the screaming. When he arrived the women were screaming even louder! He looked around and saw nothing. “Whats wrong with you two?” Bob asked. “THAT THING! ON THE GROUND!!!!!” One of them shouted. “It’s just a raccoon!” He laughed. “ARE YOU LAUGHING AT US??????” The women both said in anger. “No! I’m was just trying to help!” He said. They stormed off in a fit of rage. Bob laughed it off.

That was a strange interaction.

Week 33 The scariest day of my life. By Daniel.

Yesterday was the scariest day of my life. I was in a forest camping and suddenly I heard these frightening sounds. The deafening screams echoed through the cold night. When I looked behind me, I saw a huge shadow behind a big tree so I ran as fast as I could to get out of the forest and I found a village close by. I went there and sat on a bench outside a restaurant. I was thinking about who was screaming behind that tree and what they would have done if they got me? I fell asleep and when I woke up, I asked a man to bring me to the village that I lived in . I haven’t gone back to the forest since.

The End.

They were catching up with us. We hid behind a bin and they went past but all of a sudden they turned around. They grabbed us and then threw us into a van. Hours later, we woke up and we had no idea where we were. But we just managed to make out a tiny room. Two days later, we had a plan to escape. We would ask to go to the toilet at lunch in a different room. Then we would climb out of the window and run to the police station. We were in the toilet and made our escape. Two weeks later, the police found the men and they were locked away.

It was my first night in a strange room.

I lay awake for ages.

We had just moved to this small town.

Suddenly, just as I was falling asleep I heard a scream and a howl.

I thought I was hearing things.

The next day, we found out that a man went missing while hunting.

That night, as the search party went out, I sat down to have my supper in the diner.

After about an hour, the deafening screams echoed through the cold night.

We froze wondering what was happening.

Then about 20 people came, all of them laughing.

It had all been a joke. ‘We always play jokes on new people’, said the mayor.

Week 33 The creepy house by Jayden

One day, I was in the USA. I was walking around the town when suddenly I saw a creepy house off of one of the streets. I went towards it to have a closer look. There was a big warning sign saying ‘NO ENTRY KEEP OUT’. Foolishly, I still went in to have a look. I could hear a lot of commotion so I assumed there were people inside. Suddenly, I saw a scary look on the old woman’s face and she invited me to come in. I said ‘No I’m ok thank you, I was just walking around’. Before I knew it, she jumped from the window and grabbed a hold of me. She left me inside a room and she said she would go get me some cookies. She left and I was there for ages, unable to get out of the room and listening to the deafening screams that echoed through the cold night. I don’t believe that I am going to escape this time.

The End.

No worries, just chilling.

One day, she stole a diamond and gold ring that he always wore and he had left them behind. “But should I really do this?”, she asked herself and she did.
