Hungry BeeCreative Commons License kuhnmi via Compfight

Once upon a happy summery hot time,

there lived a friendly playful dog,

a cute furry bunny

and a small soft kitten.

They lived with their human.

Her name was Lucy.


Lucy lives in a normal ordinary house

similar to all the other houses on the estate.

It wasn’t too big and it wasn’t too small.

But her family are poor.


Lucy was so poor that she would have to beg for milk

for her cereal from her neighbour every morning.

If her neighbour said no,

she had to eat dry cereal.


Lucy was so poor that she had to wear

the same clothes every day.

These became very ragged and dirty.


The slates on the roof of her house

were cracked and falling off the roof.

When it was windy, it was windy indoors.

When it rained the rain came in.



Lucy was sad and lonely.

Yes she has her pets

but she has no human friends.

Her pets, the friendly playful dog,

the cute furry bunny

and the small soft kitten were sad for Lucy


Lucy was sad.

She had no money and nothing to do,

so she decided to go for a walk.

That would not cost any money.

She met a small stripey cat.


The cat was shy and nervous.

Lucy loved animals.

She was kind to the cat.

It came over to her.

Lucy picked the cat up.


‘Oh thank goodness’, called a voice.

‘You have found my cat,’ said the voice.

Puff! A wizard appeared out of nowhere.

Now Lucy felt nervous.

‘No need to worry Lucy,’ laughed the wizard.


‘You have found my cat. What can I do for you in return.

‘I would like some milk,

some new clothes for me and my Mum and Dad

and I would like the roof on my house fixed,’

whispered Lucy hopefully.


‘I can do better than that,’ said the wizard.

He waved his magic wand and Lucy became so rich

she never had to worry about money again.

And Lucy and her Mum and Dad,

lived happily ever after.

Abi’s Story – ‘Isabel’s Christmas Adventure’

It was Christmas Eve, Isabel was out

playing with her friends.

It was getting dark. Isabel’s Mum came to call her in.

“Well girls, are you excited about Christmas ?” she asked.

“Yes” they all shouted.

“Goodbye” said Isabel

“See you tomorrow to show you all my presents”.



At home, Isabel and her Mum snuggled together

on the sofa to watch a movie.

Isabel was enjoying a hot cocoa made by her Mum.


When the film ended Isabel put out

the cookies for Santa

and carrots for the Reindeer.

Isabel went to bed.


She fell fast asleep.

Suddenly she woke,

she heard the crunch of someone eating cookies!!



Isabel tiptoed downstairs as quiet as a marshmallow.

 She sneezed and heard someone walk towards her.

The first thing she saw was a pair of black boots

and as she looked up she saw a white beard.

Could it really be Santa? she thought

or is it my Mum dressed up as Santa?’

Santa said “Hello Isabel, why are you up so late?”


” I would LOVE to go on an adventure with you Santa”

answered Isabel.

“Right” said Santa ” Lets go to the North Pole

and open some presents in my grotto”.

“But first I have to deliver more  presents”!!

Its a dark night, the stars are bright,

Rudolph ‘s nose  will lead tonight.


Flying  up in the sky at midnight, there was

nothing to be seen except Rudolph’s bright nose!


Santa delivered all of his presents.

Then they went back to the North Pole.

Isabel was very excited to see

a big pile of presents with her name on them.

“There are more presents back in your house

waiting for you for the morning”said Santa.

“Thank you SO much Santa” said Isabel.

She opened the first present and inside was a hatchimal.

“Oh my goodness” said Isabel, “Thank you!

“Well you have been such a good girl all year,

doing your homework

and you never missed a day of school” said Santa.


Isabel was very tired with all the excitement,

she yawned and fell asleep.

A big bang woke her up,

outside there was an  evil elf looking at her.

He had a pointy nose and big black eyes.

He grabbed Isabel and said

“You’re coming with me Missy”.

“No” screamed Isabel.


The elf took Isabel in to a big green igloo.

“Give me that Hatchimal, I want it ” said the elf.

“Well” said Isabel, “you can only have my hatchimal

if you can answer my question.

Otherwise you have to bring me back to Santa’s grotto”

“Ask!” said the elf.


“What colour is a peacock’s egg?” asked Isabel.

“I know, I know” said the elf, “It’s pink”.

“Wrong” said Isabel, “Peacocks don’t lay eggs.”

“No” said the elf,  “I want the hatchimal

before I take you back”

“I insist you take me back” said Isabel.

The elf pushed Isabel in to his bubblemobile

and they went back to Santa’s grotto.

“Quick” said Santa,

“hop on my sleigh,

sunrise wont be long

and you need to get home

before Christmas morning”


One minute Isabel was in Santa’s sleigh

and the next minute she was in her bed

and it was Christmas morning!

She got up and ran downstairs

where she saw lots of presents under the tree.


“Happy Christmas, did you have a nice sleep?”

asked her Mum.

“Mum, you wont believe what happened to me last night” said Isabel.

I believe Isabel, do you?

Mya’s Story – All About Isabel

Once upon a musical time

there lived a happy little girl

who loved to sing dance and play music.

Her name was Isabel

and when she got older she wanted to go to

the Junior Music High School,

which you had to audition to get in to

and not a lot of people got in very easily


Isabel had long and silky golden hair.

Look there she is in the blue dress with the small white daisies on it.


One of the teachers at the school was called Mrs. Meenie. She lived in the school.

She was very mean and selfish and always wears lots of gold necklaces.

She likes being mean and giving a lot of homework. She dislikes children.


My story takes place

in a really large and lovely City of Music

beside the sunny Brunch Beach

just South of the noisy Flute Forest.

This town has ten different schools in it.

The different schools are either red brick or brown

but the city is colourful so its ok.

This is a city that even smells good,

like Dad’s t-shirts just out of the wash.

It is a happy town with people laughing

as they close their house doors.


Isabel likes living on Recorder Road

probably because its the only house she’s lived in

and probably the only house she’ll ever live in

but she feels that the town is a bit too loud

and if there is anything she would like to change

it would probably be that.

Right now I can hear a car engine starting very loudly.


Isabel tries to get in to the Junior Music High School

but Mrs Meanie does not want Isabel to get

in to the school and does everything in her power

to stop her from getting in.



Isabel fights back and is not going to let Mrs.Meanie

get in her way of getting in to the school

and happily gets in as the other teachers really like her

and outvote Mrs.Meenie,

and so she ends up getting in.

So then it become a happy ending for Isabel

Isabel goes on to become a very successful performer

and lives happily ever after.

This was the problem, at the place where the three boys

used go hunting for food there was a GREAT problem.

There was a big monster.

They used go hunting in the dark forest.

David had never seen a monster there but people said

The boys were afraid to go hunting there

because of the monster and now they were hungry.

He was stuck in the river of sharks,

but very luckily he was a guy in a monster truck.


David climbed aboard the monster truck.

Together Bob and David travelled to the dark forest.

there lived a man called Joe.

He had a lot of horses

but his favourite one

was called Reggie

and his second favourite

one was called

Little Paddy

One day these two horses

were going out for a jog

but the horses got a fright

so they ran away


And on that sunny day

Joe got a call from the farmer

saying the horses were in his field.


Joe rushed out the door

and got in his car and drove to the farm,


But by the time he got there

the horses had eaten

a lot of the farmer’s crops.

Conan’s Story – Matt and the Red Tiger

Once upon a scary, dangerous time there lived a boy

and his name was Matt.

He had a big, blue spiky afro hairstyle.

He had shining blue eyes like the sky.

He was medium sized

and usually wore luminous green shorts and a t-shirt.

Matt was on the trail of the Red Tiger.

Matt has never seen one himself.

And he has heard that strangely enough

legend has it that the Red Tiger is in fact green.

However he has red spots, luminous pink eyes and a light blue tail.

Furthermore, the Red Tiger has magic powers,


laser eyes

and his blue tail is real stretchy and like a whip.


Luckily Matt knows the tiger’s weakness – water.

And he also knows that in this part of the world

there are lakes you cannot see, that you can fall into and die.


Armed with this knowledge,

Matt moves along carefully

through the big, huge, unforgiving, towering mountains.

A musty, dirt, damp smell hung in the air.

Birds were flapping their wings.

Sometimes Matt could hear a distant avalanche.

But Matt felt calm and at home because he was an adventurer.


It was a scary, dangerous time

and it was just about to get more scary

and much more dangerous.

There was an earthquake.

Matt was just walking along when it happened.

The ground opened and Matt fell in

and started hurtling towards a pit of molten lava.


He though it was the end and that he was dead.

But when he opened his eyes he found himself standing

on a ledge above the lava.


He looked and found a creeper and swung to a higher ledge.

He launched himself off the higher ledge to move higher still.

Immediately he did that, the ledge broke beneath him

but luckily Max had already swung up to the next level.

But there he was stuck with no chance of getting out without help.


He heard a pitter patter of feet.

Along came a red tiger.

The red tiger came to a stop, waved its stretchy blue tail

and allowed Matt to grab it.

Matt couldn’t believe his luck

when the tail lifted him up and he got to the top and to safety.

He had had a narrow escape.


But before he could thank the red tiger or even capture it like he had planned to,

the tiger used another of its magic powers and disappeared.


Matt went home and no one would believe him,

except his mother who couldn’t think how else he could have gotten so messy.

And the good news is that he lived happily every after but he is still looking for the Red Tiger.

Lisa’s Story – Princess Poppy

Sunrise in the Forest at Night Russ Seidel via Compfight

Once upon a lonely and wintry night time,

there lived a sad and lonely princess and her father the strict king.

Her name was Princess Poppy and her home was the Palace.

Her father was kind and good but he had one strict rule.

Poppy was never to leave the palace ground.

In the palace she was surrounded by a world that was good and true,

but her father knew that outside the palace there was a malevolent witch.


Poppy had brown hair, pale skin and blue eyes.

She loved looking out of the palace windows at the open world.

Poppy disliked staying inside the palace gates.

From her bedroom in the palace

she could see the inviting, dark, leafy, green forests, a tall, grey tower

and a deep, blue lake.

She loved the smell of damp from the wintery forest

and to see winter sun shining down on the icy water from the sparkling lake.


Usually Poppy was a cheerful and chirpy girl, happy go lucky girl,

but for some time now she had been feeling sad.

She really, desperately wanted to go outside the palace.

So Princess Poppy sneaked out in the middle of the night without her Dad knowing.

She did not know her way around and soon she was lost.


She did not know about the malevolent witch

and she did not know that a spell had been cast by the witch

that meant if ever Poppy stepped outside the palace she would immediately become lost.


Luckily Poppy met someone who said she would help.

Unluckily the someone was the wicked witch.

She said to Princess Poppy she would give her shelter and protection

in the tall tower where she lived

and the next day she would show her the way to go home.


The next morning Princess Poppy tried to get out of the tower

but she found she was locked in.


That morning her Dad had woken to find out Poppy was missing.

He sent his army to find her.

They rescued her and frightened away the witch.


When her father saw the army and Poppy.

He dashed out and gives Poppy a big hug.

The witch was gone.

The spell was broken

and Poppy could go out and about after than.


And so she lived happily even after.

Hello to our new friends from The Basque Country

We say,

Welcome (in English) 

‘Céad míle fáilte romhat!’

(in the Irish language)

to Erin’s friends from The Basque Country.


‘Céad míle fáilte romhat!’ 
‘A hundred thousand welcomes’ in Irish.

Ireland is sometimes called ‘The Emerald Isle’

and people say there are forty shades of green

in the country side. We have never counted,

but we think there might be more. 


Here in Greystones, we live close to the

Little Sugar Loaf Mountain.


The Three Trout River is our nearest river


The name of our county is Wicklow

This means ‘Viking Meadow’.


The Vikings were fierce warriors

who came to Ireland 

from countries to the North 

from 795 AD


In the 1800s the sailors who sailed past

our coastland would call it ‘The Grey Stones’.

They would say

‘There was a storm at the Greystones’,

or ‘There was good fishing at The Greystones’.

This is how our town got its name.


The name of our school is Saint Brigid’s.

She was born over fifteen hundred years ago!

But people remember her because

she was good to the poor, the sick and the old.

Her Feast Day is on February 1st.


Filling Buckets – A Project in SPHE

‘Have You Filled A Bucket Today’ by Carol McCloud

(A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids)

is a picture book suitable for four to seven year olds.


We had a quick read of it, so we understood its message

and then we started our ‘fill a bucket’ project.


The message in this book is that

Everyone throughout the world carries with them “a bucket”.


In that bucket we carry all of our good feelings and thoughts about ourselves.

Other people fill our bucket when they say and do nice things.

And we can do the same for other people.


We find when we fill someone else’s bucket we feel good about ourselves

and our buckets get filled up too.


We used plastic cups to make buckets.

During the week we wrote compliments on post-its

and put them in other people’s buckets.


At the end of the week we read the post-its in our buckets.

This made us feel GREAT about ourselves

and about the other people in the class. 


Beginning our Write A Books

The Write A Book project is run

by Education Centres around the country.


We are working on our Write A Books.

The closing date is not until the new year,

but we can prepare for it by integrating it

with work we are doing in class,

like the art we are doing

and the English and

learning about maps and plans.


We are making picture books.

Each of our books contain a map.

We deliver the Write A Books to the

Blackrock Education Centre.

They send them out to another class teacher.

He or she will show them to her class

and decide on one writer to be invited

to the prize giving and

he or she will decide on the runner ups.

Winning the competition is not the important

thing. Creating a wonderful book that you can

treasure and be proud to show your children

and grandchildren is! 


You can read more about how to write a book HERE

Maps and Plans

Holly, a volunteer with Junior Achievement visited us

on Thursday and the Thursday before.

She will be visiting us for six weeks in all.

She is teaching us about town planning.


First we learned about zones:

business, industrial, residential, multipurpose and farming.

We also learned about blueprints.

and we made 3D models and put them in the correct zones on a map.

We had fun and we were learning. We are looking forward to learning more.

A SPHE Project – The Shoebox of Kind Acts

Teacher made a shoe box into a postbox.


This week she asked us to write down times


other people in the class


were kind to us on a post-it


and to sign it.


Everyday she read out what was written down.


It was good to hear how kind we are to each other.


At the end of the week there was a BIG pile of post-its.

Can we go to the Gingerbread House?’

There is a huge garden with flowers, trees and tall grasses’.

Emily M.says I have a secret door in my classroom.

When you go through the door there is a land of fairies.

It is like walking though a fairy door.

I saw a few unicorns as well in the land of fairies.

The land is made of sweets and yummy things like marshmallows and chocolate.

The fairies are nice. They let me ride a unicorn.

The unicorns gave me a basket to filled with sweets and flowers and what ever I wanted .

I even got to keep a fairy.

If you go through you’ll meet elves, fairies, mermaids, dragons and unicorns.

The animals there will talk.

Baby fairies will be born in flowers.

Seashells will have pixie dust inside.

If you put pixie dust on plants, they will grow really fast.

Trees will grow candy on them.

The fish scales change colour depending on their mood.

If you blow on the sand it will turn into jewels.

If birds dive into the sea, their tails turn into flippers.

Conan wrote about a magic garden

There is a magic door in our class in the library.

You have to pull some story books and a door opens on the ground into a magic garden.

If you go in you will meet fairies, elves, gnomes and loads of mythical creatures.

There are dragons, gargoyles, vampires, devils and grim reapers over on the dark side.

There is loads of jewellery to buy and lots of nice food.

In my classroom there’s a door and one day I went to look at it and it was open.

Everybody was scared.

What if there were dinosaurs or witches.

I said it would be fine and I walked in.

And there was a magical garden there.

There was unicorns and there was an evil queen and her name Gargona.

She cut loads of the horns off them so then I defeated her but then it was time to go.

So I went back to the classroom and I closed the door and went to my seat

and everybody wanted to know, so I told them all about it.

If I went through a magic door I would find a computer dimension.

Inside the computer it is fun.

You could be various characters in games.

I would be Steve in Minecraft and I could fly and build without need any resources.

Then I could build a hotel and a mini town.

When I’m finished in Minecraft I would move on to Roblox.

In Roblox I would play Boom Box Battle and win all the battles by using distorted audio.

I would then visit Spotify and listen to my favourite songs.

Toot, toot, 2nd last step.

Now I shall go to and build tons of houses and become a millionaire.


Now I’m gonna leave the computer because I miss my family and I’m hungry.

My clothes are filthy plus I keep on getting electrocuted.

It’s gonna be good to be back in the real world.

My Weekend in Neverland

Wendy and Peter with the Lost Boys, Peter Pan Big Golden Book by Al Dempster and John Hench Tom Simpson via Compfight

By Mya

On Saturday my family and I met Peter Pan.

On we flew to Neverland with him and Wendy.

When we got to Neverland we sat on a cloud and ate popcorn while we were looking at the view.

And then I fell right through the clouds and fell flat.

Then I heard something in the bushes and then all of a sudden Laura jumped out and gave me a great big hug.

Then I started screaming and so did Laura.

After we both started screaming I said to Laura

‘What are you doing here?’ and she said

‘I don’t know because one minute I was asleep and another minute I was here.

Just after Laura had finished talking my Dad flew down to us and said

‘Take my hand’.

We took his hand and we flew back home and when we got home Laura and I told all our friends the adventure we had.

By Brianna

Hello my name is Miss. Tinkerbell and I am a fairy.

I am very happy because today is my birthday.

I am very excited I am going to fly to Neverland with my pet Master Gem.

He is a dragon. He is excited too.


Right now I am flying to Neverland. I cannot wait.

First we are going to meet my boyfriend Peter Pan.

After that we will go out for dinner.

I am on my way to Peter Pan’s house.

I am so excited.

‘Hello Peter Pan’

‘Hi Tinkerbell’.

‘Are you ready to go out?’


‘Let’s go’.


We arrived and all of a sudden the heavens opened. We got soaked. We sat down at the table and ordered.

Next thing Peter Pan went down on his knees and asked

‘Will you marry me?’

‘Yes I will.’

‘Thank you’.

So we lived happily ever after.
