World War 2

 Boom! Boom! Boom! Bob Dickinson was petrified and worried as the dust settled slowly around his shaking lean body. He coughed heavily as the smoke cleared gradually. He could see his destroyed wrecked home  with his emerald green eyes. He looked at his smashed windows and his lovely house. It was the worst moment in the 39 years of his life. He felt heartbroken. He was worried about his children.

As he looked for the children Bob shouted “William Pennywere  are you?”  He wanted his children to come back because he was worried about them. He wanted the them to come home to Manchester. He was worried they were dead. Bob stood  there crying and looked at his wrecked home. He wanted to buy a new home but he couldn’t afford it. He Bob Dickson kept searching for his children and shouted” William, penny where are you?” he was worried that they had been stolen.

He went to the beach and in the sea he found a bottle. On the bottle it said from William and Penny. In the bottle it said “dear dad we are in Frances .We went with our friends and it was stormy so it washed us on to a French beach” bob was worried. He wondered “were are they now? He wanted to know if they were happy or sad.

Bob wanted     to go to them but it was 9 o’clock at night so he couldn’t go then so he went to sleep. Then he woke up in the middle of the night thinking about his children he went down stairs and made a cup of tea and dipped his biscuit in his tea and  went back to sleep. A few hours later it was morning ….

He was happy that they were with an adult. He got on a boat and sailed on to the  French beach and shouted “William, Penny where are you?”. A solider came and asked “do you want to join the army?” Bob said “I don’t know.ok I ll join because you don’t have enough people”. He said to his sergeant penny and William came running to their dad.

He took them away with him in the army.He survived and he could afford to buy a house in Manchester.

Lego Land Discovery Centre

On a Monday morning we went to Lego land. The first thing we did was the register and the people who went were the class, me, the teachers and Mrs Marshall and y4.

 We went to Lego land in the Trafford Centre. We went to the toilets before we went in. The Trafford Centre is in Manchester. It was boring having to wait but we only had to wait for 5 or 10 minutes.

On Monday morning, my partner on the coach was Charlotte N. I was a bit happy on the coach because Charlotte and I   played M.I.High.

Finally we got in. The first thing we did was watch Professor Brick because she was the one who showed us to make brick’s with a little movie. Next we went on kingdom quest –it had guns for us to shoot things. Afterwe went to mini land. We all saw Lego Blackpool tower. There was this horse race thing race thing and I won every race that I did. Then we had dinner. After dinner we went in the 4d cinema. We watched Bob the builder. Then we went in the play area. In the play area there was this dark slide. I didn’t go down it because I’m scared of the dark. Next we went making cars or should I say transport. Last of all we did this puzzle thing.

We got there by coach. On the coach it was boring. We played a bit of I spy and a bit of guessing what is going to be there. But we didn’t get one right. I went because it was the end of year school trip. It was good.

Overall, I thought that our class trip to Lego land was fantastic. If I could choose where to go on our next school trip, I would choose Camelot because of the big rides.

Legoland

On Monday morning y3&y4 were going to Lego land at the Trafford centre in the department Barton square. We got there by coach (do not know what company) when we got to the Trafford centre car park we had a drink on the coach. After we got off the coach we walked to Lego land and we had to wait 25 minutes till we could enter Legoland. So we went to the toilet and we had to wait for a long time then we went back and y3 got in lego land first and y4 looked around the shop.

When we got inside we went upstairs we watch a video how to make lego. Then we went to Professor Brick then we all got a factory brick. Then we went on KINGDOM QUEST you had lazar guns you had to shoot aliens. Then we went into a room with dotted floor and you had to complete a puzzle. We completed it 2. Then we went to a 4d cinema it was bob the builder when it rains spray water and if it snowed it had bubbly soap.

 After we had are diner I had cheese spread on my sandwiches. After we went to a play area called Fire Academy there was a big slide right down to the bottom it was fun. Then we made Lego cars we built them, tested them and we raced them mine broke every time.

 Then we went to the toilet and when I went in the toilet the lights off and it was cool. Then we went to the shop and we were allowed to spend £5.00 I bought a police set and I got 50P. Then we sat in the corner and waited for y3&y4 to come to the corner.

 

Then we walked back to the coach and had another drink of water and then went back to school it was so boring on the coach. Finally we got back then we were back for home time at 3:15. 

  Overall I thought that our class trip to Lego land was totally awesome. If I could choose were to go for are next school trip I will choose Lego land Windsor because it has lots of rides there and it is well cool.

Football

On Wednesday the 13th of October Me and some other children in year5 and6 went on a football trip.  We set off at half 2 and we left at 6 o’clock but I got home at half 6 because I had a chicken burger on the way home at McDonalds’. It was at Leigh sports Village, Ava and me went in my mum’s car. Other people went in Mr. Sharkeys and Lucy’s dad’s car. When we got there we went to the toilet and then we went on to the pitch. It was massive but luckily they split it in to threes. Because we brought our own balls  we were allowed to practise. After a couple of minutes Mr. Sharkey  played a couple of mini games with us. Then finally Mr. Sharkey told us the rules and we played the first team but before that he told us that we had to pretend to be in y5 and y6. The first game it was one to us and 0 to them, the second game it was 1 to us and 0 to them, and the third game it was one to us and 0 to them and the fourth game was 1 all and the fifth game was 1 0 to st. Burnedets. Then finally we found out who was in the final. It was us and st. Burnedets. The last game was0 0 so it went down to penalty shoot outs but it was 5 4 to them!!!! We got a medal though. Then after that we went home and had our McDonalds’. I think we all had a really good day.

 BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Bob Dickinson was petrified and worried as the dust settled slowly around his shacking lean body. He coughed heavily. As the smoke cleared gradually he could see his destroyed wrecked home in his south Manchester street with his emerald green eyes he looked at the smashed windows and the pile of rubble that used to be his lovely house. It was the worst moment in the 39 years of his life. He felt heartbroken. He was worried about his children.

Bob gets married to a lovely girl. Bob went to pick up his children from his mothers but nobody was home. He looked around the house “mum, William, Penny where are you?!!!” Bob shouted. He was terrified and worried about them all. So he stood up and went to his wife.” have you seen my kids?” Bob asked almost as he wanted to fall on the floor. “Well no, why? Where they at your mothers?” she asked “no and she’s gone to” Bob said. And then went out.

He searched high and low. He checked at the cafe, beach, the forest, his new house. He could not find them anywhere. The post man came with a letter it said “dear bob Dickinson your house has been blown up so you can stay here with us until your house gets fixed and I was wondering if you get bored in Wales you can join the war if you like

From uncle john

 p.s. You will need a gas mask it will be very smoky.”

 “Oh no “. Bob muttered, he sent back a letter saying “no I can’t”.

Many weeks later he got another letter “hi Bob I think I know where your children are. They are in the countryside. Some body found them and put them on a train and sent them to be evacuated. I am sorry I am trying to keep it a secret but it was killing me. I am sorry. Go to the train station quickly before it’s too late. Because the kids train is leaving soon, from your wife Lesley.” “Wow” thought bob running to the train station.” Kids! William! Penny!.”

The train left. Bob heard and saw another train it said on the front ‘evacuated train’. He raced to the train and got on it. When he arrived he felt scared. He went to the children’s home but he went to the wrong countryside. He got on another train. Time passed and Bob had been on 5 trains. When he reached the country he was amazed.

His children were sitting on a carpet playing with Lego “daddy” they shouted “penny William there you are” so they went to get another train and they lived with Lesley and they lived happily ever after.

Two headed monster arrives 

On Monday 11th October 2010 around 7:30 an alien came to Earth. Mean while Mr Sharkey was working late after school when suddenly the caretaker ran in and said “come and look at this!” they ran outside and they saw an alien. Mr Sharkey ran inside and started crying. But the caretaker was brave enough to shake its hand…

Mr Sharkey was marking some Jotters when suddenly the very tall caretaker came running in like a lion with his hair sticking up. They both ran outside as fast as lightning. When they got outside they saw a huge space ship and its colour was a greeny  yellow, and pink. The space ship was about to land, on the school field. Suddenly a girl alien with two heads came out of the space ship but Mr Sharkey sprinted in side like a cheater and went inside the y4 classroom, then hid under a table like a rabbit and cried really load. But the caretaker was brave enough to shake the aliens hand and the alien yelled “I come in peace” “and my name is Squiggles”. The alien then flew off back to her planet. St. Andrews was saved!

Badminton

 My badminton trip on Tuesday the twelve of October 2010. We went to a badminton festival. We went at 3:30 and my mum picked me up at 5:30pm. I got a ride in Mr Sharkey’s car, it was very small compared to my mum’s but it was still so fun. On the way there, first we were talking about where badminton came from because I asked him “ were did the name badminton come from ?, did it come from badminton house were they first discovered it?.” Finally we got there it was at robin park sports hall. When we got in the badminton room all the nets were set up, and because we were early and luckily Mr Sharkey had brought his stuff so we practised. A couple of minutes later the other schools came and practised with Mr. sharkey’s bats as well.  Soon after that the trainers came and we warmed up with some badminton exercises with shuttlecocks. Then we played 6 mini games on 3 we got the highest score!!!!!!! But then me and Jessica had to swap teams because Lucy and Megan went to the toilet. Finally we played some matches we lost 1 and won 1!!!! But our team got in the finals and St. Andrews school teams came first and second!!!

The Story of Bob Dickinson

Boom!  Boom! Boom! Bob Dickinson was petrified and worried as the dust settled slowly around his shaking lean body. He coughed heavily. As the smoke cleared gradually he could see his destroyed, wrecked home in his South  Manchester  street .With his emerald green eyes he looked at the smashed windows and a  pile of brick that used to be his lovely house .It was the worst moment in the 39 years of his  life . He was worried about his children. 

Bob soon found out that his children were missing so he went to the beach because it was their favourite place. He got there but it took him 2 hours. However he would do any thing to get his children back. He went back home and thought of other places to look. Bob was awake for a long time but soon he nodded of.

 The next morning Bob went to go and get this post. One envelope said “that he had to go to war” but Bob was too worried about his children so he looked for the last time. When he got their there was a message in a bottle. It said “that his children were in the war” and Bob said “I have to go into war because my children are in danger”.

 

Bob went to his mum’s house to tell her but she disagreed. Bob begged   but 2 hours later he gave up, he said “ I give up I  am  not going into war.” Bob slowly walked home .He got home and went to sleep. Bob had a nightmare but he slept through the whole thing.

His horrible nightmare was that he had gone into the war and he came back to find his children but when he got back his children were dead. He woke up and said “ That’s it I am going to war and I don’t  care if I get shot by a gun. I just want to save my children.” So he packed   his bags and left his broken house and set off to war.

Bob was so good at shooting the others. He  shot the Germans but  he was not in the right place so he travelled to France .In France  Bob killed everyone  accept  the boss who had the children so he said “ right I will fight you” .So he got all the weapons he could  find and started fighting. The boss was winning but  Bob kept on going on. Finally Bob won and freed his children and got enough money to buy a new house and Bob become a millionaire.

He was worried about his children and his house. 

Bob looked for his children everywhere he looked especially in the forest. After five hours of hard work he decided to stay at his mums because of his bombed house. But waiting for him at his mums was a golden envelope. The envelope said that bob had to go to war!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bob felt surprised but puzzled he was so scared he nearly fainted but luckily he didn’t. Bob got to the train station with a very teary face, he was going to war. Meanwhile Bob Dickinson’s girlfriend Mary Check was with their two children Susie and Joey Dickinson. They were on a very dirty boat. The children were terrified and heartbroken that they would never see their dad again. Suddenly a massive storm started. The waves were crushing against the boat. The boat suddenly got washed up on a German beach!!!!!!! 

Bob was now on fighting for his life and his country. His armour was heavy and he felt shattered. He suddenly spotted a very dirty beach. He took the risk and went to rest on the beach and guess who as there Mary, Susie and Joey. At first Bob thought he was seeing things but he ran over anyway. It was them!!!!!!!!!

Bob quickly took them home and then to the hospital. They suddenly woke up in their medical beds “Were are we” Joey said “ don’t worry your in the hospital” the nurse said clearly.  Luckily it wasn’t serious.

The next week they bought a house in Wales and lived happily ever after. Bob and Mary even got married!

He coughed heavily as the smoke cleared gradually he saw his house in his street with his emerald green eyes he looked at the smashed windows that used to belong in his front room. It was the worst moment in his 39 years of life. He was absolutely heart broken. He was worried about his to children and his wife.

 

” Penny! William! are you there?” Shouted Bob. “You are Bob, right? I know where your children are. There being evacuated !!”

Bob grabbed Penny some choclate. When he arrived they weren’t there. “Where could they be? Have you seen my children?! 1boy and one girl with black hair?”   “I saw them rush of before. They said they were looking for a a bloke called bob Dickinson.” “OH NO!!” shouted Bob, “I just lost them by the skin of my teeth!!!!!!!!!!!   it hurts me to wonder where they are! Oh, they could have gone back to the house. They could have been there the whole time” said Bob.

 At last he arrived. He climbed into the children’s old destroyed bedroom but they were not there. he looked everywhere but there was no sign of them. Bob was eggsausted. Meanwhile the children were on a small hill in the middle of knowhere not far from they hadn’t got a clue! The children hadn’t ate for several days. On the hill the trees was bare, they didn’t dare to wonder. William was the oldest. Penny was only 6 so William had to look after her and make sure that she was safe. Luckily they saw a man passing by. A kind man saw them, he was from the city. He said…”Ooh you poor whippersnappers” and gave them both a peace of bread. they were very grateful.

Many weeks later they were sent to the train station. Meanwhile Bob was still searching for William and Penny. He decided to check the train station one more time. He saw William’s face pressed against the windowsill and Bob ran in front of the train and singled it to stop. William and Penny jumped off the train and leaped in to Bob’s arms. Bob now saw their mother in the distance. They all gave each other a great big hug. But Bob and Helen did have some serious injuries. The children just needed  a few stitches. Bob had a broken arm and they had to stay there for a few days. But after that Bob raised enough money to buy a new house and England won the war and they were happy for the rest of there lives.    The children grew up to be as smart  as Bob. Penny had a little boy and named it BOB !!!

Bob Dickinson On the Hunt

Boom! Boom! Boom! Bob Dickinson was petrified and worried as the dust settled slowly around his shaking lean body. He coughed heavily. As the smoke cleared gradually he could see his destroyed, wrecked home in . With his emerald green eyes he looked at the smashed windows and the pile of bricks that used to be his lovely home. It was the worst day of his 39 years of his life. He felt heartbroken. He was worried about his children.

 

Bob went looking for his children. First he looked on the beach but there was no sigh there.

Then he looked down the next street. Next he decided to go to his dads. Then he heard the postman say” Bob has a letter from the army”. Next he got the letter and read the letter it said “Dear Bob please join the army we don’ have many people. We only have 1ooo people”.

 

The problem: will he go to the army or will he find his children? He decided to find his children. Next he sent a letter back saying “I have lost my children. I will find them first”. Later he started looking. First he looked on the beach again but there was no sigh there but then he saw something in the water. He sprinted to it. It was a bottle with a message. It said “Bob Dickinson’s children are in my house. My house is 41 Dusty Ave Springfield Wigan England.

 

The problem! The problem! It has been solved. All I have to do now is find her. Then he ran as fast as he could to find  the person. Two hours later he found the house and knocked on the door. No one awserd so he knocked again. This time someone awserd. It was a girl. As soon as they looked into each others eyes they where in love.

The next day they went to dinner together. She said her name was Ava. He didn’t notice that he was in Greater Manchester and the slightly bombed café was called Home Sweet Home. The next day he asked her “will you marry me?” she whispered “yes” and 1hour later he yelled “ where are the children?” she replied “ holiday in south Africa” he said “ holiday in south Africa” he said “thank you for telling”. He said “have this gas mask” “and will you help me build my home back” and she yelled “yes”. Later that day there children came home and they were found and they got married.

 Many weeks later they had a baby and they named the baby Emily Dickinson. The day after that the house was back to normal and they moved out to Wales because it was safe and sound there. They never had a problem again apart from the children falling out.
