The Big Wave by Emma D

I heard a crackling noise coming over me. I looked behind me and it was an enormous wave .Three seconds later I was really far down in the sea that it was pitch black. I felt the seaweed and the coral brushing against my body. I was almost out of breath. I had to push against the current to get to the top of the water. I was miles away from the shore. How will I get back. It must at least take two or three days to get back.Then my cousins saw because I had my pink togs on (thank you togs). One of the older boys carried me back to the shore. My mum was very worried because she could not see me anywhere.Then I went up to her and she hugged me till I said “never stop”.

Sadness by Karina

Why was Mum crying?  I asked her what was the matter.
"Grandpa's got cancer," she sobbed putting down the phone.
I was shocked.  I knew they had no cure.
"What's going to happen?" I asked, even though I already knew the answer.
"He's going to die," she said through sobs.
I tried to contain my tears.
"Please don't cry, please don't cry, please don't cry," I whispered over and over to myself.
But I couldn't hold it in any longer. So I hugged Mum and started crying my heart out with her.  I felt like I was going to hold on forever and not let go.  I hugged her tighter and I felt safer so I kept grasp of her while I could.  We looked at each other as if to say everything's going to be okay.

Fight Brewing by Amber

Some kid was swinging his leg back and forward behind one of my friends. What’s he doing? Suddenly it popped into my mind. He’s going to kick her. When he was still doing it, two of my friends and I shouted “Ishani! Look behind you!”
“What?” she replied. I can’t believe it. She didn’t even notice him.

Then she finally turned around and saw it. So, just in the nick of time, she jumped away. I smell a fight coming, and that’s really bad. Luckily the teacher came just in time and stop what was going to happen. Maybe some other time I’ll have that fight.

Lost by Kali

Wheres my mum I can’t see her. Where are you I panicked. I yelled again MUMMY. I still couldn't see  her anywhere , I started to sulk, it felt like she had passed away.
I screamed hollering MUMMY,  I slowly sat down bursting with tears saying, wheres my mummy. I miss you already.

I heard foot steps. Suddenly someone appeared in front of me. I looked up it was my mum. I thought you were dead., I rushed up to her. I thought I lost you, I hugged her tight. I love you mummy.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book review by Emily

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Reviewed by Emily

This book is about a boy who has a poor family.Charlie Bucket he loves chocolate but he only gets one chocolate bar a year for his birthday present.Every day he would walk to school he would go early and as he would go past Willy Wonka’s factory he would start to go slower and slower he would take slow deep breaths of chocolate and gloop them down. Mr Bucket came in with the newspaper he read it out - I Willy Wonka have put a golden ticket in 5 chocolate bars to 5 just 5 lucky children will get to come in to my factory. Will Charlie Bucket get a golden ticket?

I think this book is really cool because you can nearly taste the chocolate in your mouth. I think lots of people would like this even adults will like it.
You can guess what happens next.
5 out of 5
