The Day Things Started Disappearing

The day things started disappearing.


Once upon a time there was a boy called Johnny. He loved to play with his dog jack. But one day when Johnny went outside to call his dog he didn't come to him so Johnny went to jack’s kennel he wasn't there so Johnny looked all around his house but he wasn't anywhere.


The next day he looked again he wasn't there he went to the pound but he wasn't there so Johnny thought he disappeared and he was right because when he asked his neighbour if anything was missing. His neighbour said his television disappeared and he asked his friend if anything was missing he said that his bed was gone.


He thought about it all night if everyone had something missing. But when he finally went to sleep he heard a scream so he got out of bed and ran were the scream came from. It was his mother. His mother was looking out of the window. She was looking at some little green men running around outside holding what looked like a lamp post. He ran outside to get a better look. When he looked up and he saw a huge spaceship flying overhead.He looked where he saw the little green men and they were running into the spaceship. They looked very scared then he saw why they were scared of. It was police cars driving down the street it was probably his mum that called them. When he looked back the spaceship was gone.


After that he never saw the spaceship again or did stuff disappear and he did get jack back.

The Girl who walked by my house

There was a girl who will walk past my house
she was so small she looked like a mouse
but one day I saw her at school
I found her sitting on a stool
A few years later I saw her in the shops
and she was licking some lollipops
and one day her dad said to me
"your mum has invited us over for tea"
and that's the end of the story
I hope I haven't said it poorly

The day the Chinese saved the world

It was a normal  in Antarctica. The penguins were squawking, seals were splashing and the giant robots were helping yes it was the year 2342 AD. It was a normal day but the world is going to find out a disaster and here it goes. It was a beautiful hot day but the temperature was rising after a few hours the temperature was about 58 degrees celsius so Antarctica was melting drip by drip then bucket by bucket and lastly water Tank by water tank so all the people around the world were screaming because the water was rising meter by meter but the only country was calm was the Chinese because they had a plan the plan was to do yoga in Antarctica to make a words saying SOS so a space ship could come down and freeze Antarctica so the world could be saved. So the Chinese did all that stuff and saved the world. THE END
