The Explorer's Resuce

A few years ago  there were  explorers who were in Antarctica. It was very cold there. Their boat was sinking and sinking. 
The people called help! Help! but no one heard a noise until…An aeroplane heard the noise of the people yelling help me please help!

The aeroplane flew down to save the people from drowning in the icy cold water.

Santa at the beach! By Elizabeth

Last weekend you won't  believe what I saw down the road at the beach. I saw Mrs Claus sun bathing at the beach! Santa Claus was surfing on the surfboard out in the ocean. There was a problem, Santa fell off his surfboard and into the water! When he was swimming away a shark was following him at the back of him, but the shark was scared by the dolphin, it came and bumped off the shark and scared it away. Santa and Mrs Claus lived happily ever after.

The Storm

On the school picnic while we were walking I imagined that there was a storm and there was lightening and thunder and rain and hail and heaps and heaps of black clouds and me and my friends and teacher nearly got struck by lightening.
Then the whole of Pt England School ran back to school, grabbed their stuff and went home and told their mums and dads and they were all scared.Then the next day the storm was finished and that day we had our picnic.
