The Silent House

One spooky stormy night there was a little, silent house. One day, two children crept near the house. In the legend of this house, a silent beast lived in the rotten house. The legend went onto say that the two children, Jimmy and Tom, would find out if this magical legend is true.

They entered the house. Everything was silent until the sound of foot steps in their presence. Without warning, they could hear howling from the moon. It was the full moon. They thought the creature could be a werewolf. They shook. A miniature dog came and the silent creature crept behind the dog and said “BOO! I found you”, then the creature looked up at Jimmy and Tom and said “Hi my name is Poppy, I’m a vampire but I’m not going to hurt you.”

A few weeks later, they became friends but something else lived in the silent house. They will never find the secret of the silent house and who dares to live there next. It could it be spying on them right now…

So far on our Year 5 Hathersage residential, we have taken part in some very exciting activities. We all met at Worksop Train Station on Sunday afternoon and, after saying goodbye to our parents, we caught the train to Sheffield. When we arrived at Sheffield Train Station, we then had to board another train to Hathersage.

Once we arrived at Hathersage, we walked from Hathersage train station to St Michael’s Education centre where we would be staying for the next couple of days. After we had met Rachel, the woman who works at the centre, we then had a tour of the centre and found out where we would be sleeping. After this, we unpacked our things and made our beds.

After we made our beds and had our tea, we went on a night walk. On the night walk we walked through Brookfield Manor and up to St Michael’s church on a spooky walk through the graveyard. Once we had done this we returned back to St Michael’s Education Centre and went to bed.

The following morning, we woke up, had breakfast, made our lunches and then got our things ready for our activities. Half of us went on a hike to Stanage Edge while the other half of us completed orienteering challenges and completed a stream study.

The Four Polar Bears

In a glistening land of ice and snow, there were four polar bears who were as white as winter wonder. They live in an ice palace.

One day, the ice started to melt. Suddenly, there was a magical book that told them how to cure their home from melting. They set off on one stormy night. It was hard for the three cubs. Then, an evil ice queen shouted at the cub for walking on her.

“How dare you! Go to find my cure! If you complete these challenges, I will give you the cure” She screamed angrily, “the first challenge will be to sneak the ice emerald out of my iced up hand”. They realised that the ice queen could teleport and melt into the snow.

They finally did it. They were so happy, they were amazed! They pounced home to the ice palace. When they got there, they realised that there was a dint in the ice to put the cure in. The cure turned in to a frosted Ruby but it wasn’t a ordinary Ruby, it was clear, but then…

Polar Bears Fishing

One day in the freezing and snowy Antarctic there were four fluffy polar bears. One of the polar bears was daddy polar bears who was always trying to find food for his children. The second polar bear was 12 years old and always has fun in the snow.

The next day the four polar bears went on a walk down the riverside.

The Mischievous Polar Bears in the Arctic

The snowy white polar bears with a little baby on it’s back was walking to its home slowly so the baby didn’t cry. First however, they went to catch some fish for their dinner as they had none at all.

They went to catch some for dinner but there was none and they fell in but the baby was still on it’s back. The adult bear swam to land near their home and nearly caught some fish.

The polar bears were walking to a big space to make a house for them to live in so they did not get any colder. They a made an igloo for them and tried to make it big enough for the big polar bear to fit. They went to sleep and tried to make a fire to heat up all of the fish they collected so they had something to eat so they do not starve. The polar bear went home and went to bed with its baby for the night and ate their food then went to bed until tomorrow.

When they woke up, they went fishing again to get more food and they were successful to catch more fish. They caught loads of fish for them to eat so they do not starve. So that night they warmed the fish so they can eat, sleep and relax before they went to sleep.

The Polar Bears

There were once four polar bears who lived on the moon in an Igloo. The older polar bear went to hunt for shulkers but she met an evoker and was kidnapped. The second polar bear went to find the first and met an enderman and was kidnapped. The third polar bear went out to find the first an second and met a wither and was kidnapped. The fourth however, was too smart and stayed home. The ender dragon (the boss) wasn’t happy. He sent all of his minions to find the fourth polar bear but, try as they might, they could not find her. The ender dragon himself went, found the polar bear and ate her.

The Haunted House

One dark, gloomy night in a haunted pitch black forest lived a gigantic haunted house. The owner was an enormous monster.  He looked like a ball of knotty hair and with crispy, crunchy and crusty eye monster. It was disgusting.

There were loads of people in there, we all needed to help them get out without getting caught. We need an invention to help everyone out before they get injured. We needed to find the door because I had scissors in my pocket. I found the rusty crooked door. I opened it.

We were all quiet. One of our friends was behind the door. We had the key, he slammed it closed and locked it as fast as a racing cheetah. We all needed to jump out of the gigantic broken window. We all jumped out the window.

The monster opened the door, we ran behind the house. The scary monster was thinking where are they?  We all ran out of the forest, far, far away, all the way to a different country and every one was safe.
