The Flying Dog!

Woof! Woof!
“CAN YOU KEEP THAT DOG QUIET, I AM TRYING TO CONCENTRATE” shouted our next door neighbor.
“Sorry to disturb you, I am not sure what my dog is barking at,” I replied nervously.
Lovingly I approached my dog carefully, patting his head as I examined for any sign of what he might be barking at! Suddenly I noticed a mysterious shadow lurking in the cloud polluted sky! In a blink of an eye, the shadow turned into an elegant bird! Gradually it came closer and closer, the bird swooped down and lifted my dog upwards; he was flying!

Easter School!

imageThis Easter holiday, some children were chosen to come to school and work on their maths! I am one of  those children( Ellie W) and so far, even though it is only the first day, it has really helped me!

Today we worked on graphs and multiplying  and dividing three digit numbers! To start with I was a bit wobbly on graphs, but after todays lesson I really understand them and how to estimate amounts or the time on a graph! We also had a sheet of homework so we could work on our multiplying, and I got all of them, exept for a little one I messed up on because I forgot to carry a number over: silly mistake! 🙁

I now really understand both graphs and multiplying numbers, and that was only with a bit of extra practice! Now you might be thinking well that is really boring, but actually it isn’t and I really enjoyed todays Easter School!:)

 

Happy Easter!!!!

Monster Jam!

When all is silent, nothing to be heard,and then suddenly a booming noise echoes through the world like a ripple ,you know where the noise is coming from! Now don’t get embarassed and blame the children it’s nothing to do with them!It’s the ‘Monster Jam, crew.”Who” you might be saying, well this is the story of Blob,Dounghut and doo-doo!

“Another boaring day of Monster University ,what should we do?”exlaimed Blob.
“I don’t know, maybe we should go and steel little old ladies handbags!”chuckled Dounghut pleadingly.
“Why?we did that yesterday and plus that isn’t very nice to do every day!”
“Well I only like doing it because I like the goo flavoured suck sweets they keep in their handbags”said Doughnut as he licked his lips!
“I know what we should do, we should be in a band!”shouted Blob,that will give us something to do!
Even though Dounght loved the sound of this and it would surley stop them from being to boared,well could he bare the sound of Blob’s terrible voice: it sounded like Mrs Laa-Laa’s slime beetle when she forces it to eat chocolate! Cautiously ,to hide his feelings about Blobs painfully bad singing, he asked “Well won’t we need another person?”.
“Well yes I think we may need another person,I’m going to have a nap you can find them!”Blob yawned.

Quietly and cautiously, confident and ecxited, Dounught made his way along the lifeless coridor to the hall where Monters from all over Monstropolist, mainly Scare Town, gathered for important announcements.Feeling slightly worried he nudged his way into the crowd. Like a moviestar he pranced up on stage and stood there awkwardly until Sull(the sound man) gave him a microphone!”Hel..lo” he stuttered,”I am here to announce that there will be auditions for one more person to join a band”.Questions got thrown at him all at once and he couldn’t understand most of them!He couldn’t handle this, he was freeking out.Suddenly he plucked up the courage and whispered”I will be putting posters up tomorrow and they will have all of the details on!”
The next day Blob and Doughnut printed of some posters they read:Auditions for a new member of a band. Then in bigger print it read:Only come if you are a monsterific drummer or singer.Doughnut thought he should write singer just in case Blob decided he was the singer!

Day after day people came and auditioned but none of them seemed to blow the horns of Doughnut and Blob,they needed a bit more pazaz! One day a little weedy monster named Doo-Doo came(yes I know a very funny name but thats not the point). He blew the horns and the scales of them.He was perfect!They didn’t need to see anyone else. It was official, Doo-Doo was the new singer.Thank goodness for that Doughnut thought!
Weeks past and finally after sweat,tears and determination they went to number one in the carts with their first hit single ‘Why We Steal Old Ladies Handbags’!
Now you know where the noise comes from!

Tricky Riddles

1)A man worked at a high security institution. The man tried to log into his computer and the computer denied the password. He then remembered that the passwords to the computers were reset every month for security reasons. He called his boss for his new password.

The man said, “Boss, my old password is out of date.”

The boss said, “Yes, it is. The new password is different, but if you listen closely you will be able to figure out the new one. Your new password has the same amount of letters as the old one, and four of the letters are the same.”

The man then logged into his computer with no trouble. What was the new password? What was his old?

2)I am the start of war and end of sorrow.
you can’t express wisdom without me but I am at the heart of dimwits. You may find me in waves but never in oceans. What am I?

3)
What object has keys that open no locks, space but no room and you can enter but not go in?

4)
This morning my girlfriend sent me this text message:
A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,V,W,X,Y,Z.

What did she mean by this text?

Dear Kitty …

20th March 1939

Dear Kitty,
What tragic news I have for you today…Hundreds upon hundreds of my own people are being taken to the worst place possible!I can’t bare thinking about what could happen to us , all of us.
However hard I try I just can’t get it out of my head ,my friends , my family,ME! I know my feelings really don’t matter though but I can’t help feeling lonley. Despite these desolate times one ray of comfort to me: my friend Lia Lessa has come into hiding with me. Unfortunatley her mother and father have been taken to that place. I can’t even bare to say the word it frightens me so much.She has told me how she managed to squeeze into the tiniest space ever and it was a miricle they didn’t find her.I could feel her fear crawling over my skin like spiders.Disgracefuly she told me how her mother and father got dragged away and thrown into a cattle cart.She described the horrible people as almost like demons snatching away the precious and beloved. The intensity of which makes me able to almost feel her unbearable pain and suffering.I would hate to be her.Sadly for I fear the loss of our friendship, but hopefully a safe alternative for her, I have found out that she is going to Britain to be adopted.I feel overjoyed for her but almost feel like that should be me as well, but could I ever handle being away from my parents?She also told me how this man has helped her through this tough time , his name is Nicholas Winton. He is like an avenging angel, a life saver; how could she ever manage without him. As I sit here writing this I am shivering. We have already had ‘visitors’ and hope they won’t come back again.For now I sit here silently thinking about the horrible fate that could awiat me…

Your friend
Eleanor xx

The Goddess Of Nature

It was the middle of winter, frost dew drops hung from the crispy green leaves.
Snow crunched like cornflakes beneath my feet and the wind roared above me !

Who would have known that a deity like me could be in control of a powerful thing.
Suddenly I began to feel tired so I ventured back home above the Earth.

After the walk home I found an angry looking God staring at me .He was disappointed in me ,I hadn’t been Nature at her fullest.Usually I could tip heavy caravans over with my tornadoes I didn’t deserve to hold such power …

The Piano Of Thoughts!

Suddenly a glow of light appeared before me and a tempting voice beckoned me to explore further…

Scared and worried, I ventured further into the wisp of light to find: a empty room with just a piano in .Feeling intrigued, I felt the urge to go and touch the shiny, black surface and play some of the notes.
I tested the notes from the piano and soon I came to my favourite …It made me think of an elegant ballet dancer prancing in the woods in a lilac satin dress !
Sinisterly a black hooded figure came around the door….

The Sinister box

Knock, knock…I opened the door cautiously being careful of who was behind it. Apprehensively I peered round the slight crack of the door; to find no one present. All that was left there was a small box with a bright pink bow on sitting atop like a thief in court! It stared at me longingly, waiting for me to just analyse what was inside! Something didn’t seem right about this! Something seemed sinister… I felt like a fool; it was just a plain box yet I was petrified of it! Something whirled around in me, urging me to open it…

Ellie W 100 word challenge!

Entry:7699
Day 2 of being a vampire
Dear diary something extraordinary happened yesterday…It all started when I was at school. I was in science with my best friend when we both got bored and we decided to have a little chat. It all happened then. So quickly! She was just talking, and something came over her. Suddenly serrated fangs emerged from her mouth and she dug them right into my neck-for a second everything looked upside down –I couldn’t get away! She explained to me afterwards that she was a vampire, and I was too! I was shocked!
