The Legend of Hodsock

Once upon a time lived a tree called Elm. There were a rich family, who lived in a colossal house, explored a forest. They had a little sister called Emma. She went up to this tree and touched it. She felt really dizzy and then…she vanished.

“Hahahaha” shouted Elm. Her Mum and Dad ran around the magnificent forest to find Emma. Sadly, her mum touched the tree and disappeared. The tree stopped shining and her dad saw blood on the tree and he ran. Dad ran back to the tree and recognised that the blood was gone. He heard footsteps. He felt a warm, soggy hand on his woolly coat. He ran with a fright. Dad saw the tree speak to this man in the forest.

“Hey you there” shouted Dad. He saw the tree and disappeared. He saw a note and it said “Help me!”… but the other side was gone.

“Dad” shouted a familiar voice.

“Emma my sweetie is that you”shouted Dad

“Yes dad” screamed Emma. Later, Dad ran to Emma and saw she had a squirrel in her hand.

“Can we keep it?” said Emma. Emma was happy to have a pet. She was scared about mum.

“Where’s Mum” cried Emma.

“I don’t know” said Dad

The Lake

Once upon a time, there lived a girl named Coral. She lived in a large, happy home but would usually be found near the shimmering lake in her great, beautiful garden. If you want to see her, she has red hair and bright green eyes.

Coral always enjoyed playing by the lake, but about once a day she would lean over and touch the soft, cold lake. Occasionally, the child would take her pretty purple shoes off and dip her feet in the icy water. Sometimes she would see different fish, sometimes goldfish, sometimes codfish.

One day, she didn’t just want her fish in it but wanted to go in herself. So the next day she put her old, blue dress on and got in the lake; she loved it. Then, as she was swimming around, she saw an eel, but not any old eel an electric eel!

Coral swam away as fast as her arms and legs could carry her. Then she saw the eel go after a group of fish. Coral wasn’t just going to sit around, she was going to help the poor, helpless fish. She dived in and went to the eel, grabbed a bucket and threw it on the electric eel’s head. She helped the fish back to their home in the lake. The water almost seemed to help her to the surface.

Coral fed the young fish and helped them grow. She played at the lake side everyday and the lake seemed to obey her. They all lived happily ever after.

The Legend Of Hodsock

Once, long long ago, lived a old tree. This tree was gnarled and ancient. The tree grew in Hodsock in a colossal home and an elegant garden. The tree was called Holly. In the massive mansion lived a kind, rich family and in the family there were 3 children. This is the story of the middle child, Hope. She would play in the forest alone, sometimes she even saw strangers. She liked to go near them but they never talked to her as they didn’t know her. However, one day she wondered near Holly and saw a strange, old man. The man called her over and asked her name. “I’m Hope” she replied ” Who are you?” He was filthy and dark. Slowly, the child walked to Holly as the man commanded. She touched the tree. Suddenly, she heard a horrid, evil laugh. She saw white, then couldn’t move. She couldn’t talk. She was the tree. Legend has it, Hope still rests in Hodsock waiting to be freed from the dark bark and dusty wood she was caged in, but only if someone touches her.

The Quest

Once upon a time in Japan a young samurai set out on a mission to deliver an important message to the King. He was riding along a path until he came across an inn so like you would he went inside. In the inn he met an old man, the old man asked where he was going and he said that he was going to deliver a message to the king. The old man told him that he would encounter a dragon, so he set off on the rest of the journey ignoring what the man said little did he know lurking just up the path was the dragon watching him.

It took one hour to get to where the dragon was, he had no clue that the dragon was waiting for him in the bush. As quick as a flash the dragon jumped out of the bush and stood behind him. The samurai heard a twig snap behind him and turned round, stood in front of him was a giant orange and red dragon. He tried to run but did not succeed and the dragon ate him for his tea.

Eden Camp

Today was one of the best days of year 6, it was the Eden Camp trip!

We each had a partner for the long hour and a half journey. When we got there, we saw a model of The Spitfire, it was incredible. We explored the stinky huts with different topics of the war. Some of our favourites were the hut with the U-boat and the one about evacuees. Also Joshua shook a bottle and it exploded, everyone got soaked!! The puppet show was amazing! The gift shop sold many interesting things such as teddy bears, squishies and sweets. It was fun but we had to leave, we didn’t want to but we had to but at least it was fun while it lasted.

Brutal Blackout

Flying high up in the dark, misty sky, havoc causing bombs were flying around, causing fear in people’s lives. As the nauseating, sick people set off the bombs Jets and planes were dodging the life changing bombs. The sirens wailed out into the night sky. It was a complete black out.

Down in a tiny house a family of five were rushing about trying to gather everybody. “Get away from the window Jacob!” cried his Mum, as she dragged him away from the window. His brother Daniel came and scurried Jacob along out of the room. “Mother! Help! What’s happening?” Eliana screamed in horror from her bed. Sally came hurrying into Eliana’s room. She scooped her up into her arms shouting down to her Mother “Grab the boys’ now!”

They rushed, running for their lives, out of the house into the hut, which they used as a bomb shelter, just as Jacob reached the hut he turned around in a panic and started running back to the house. He headed straight towards the living room. “Jacob what are you doing? it’s not safe come on we need to get out of here!” Daniel belted as loud as he could to be heard over the bombs. Jacob reached for a picture of his dad, he just managed before the deafening explosion. The house started to crumble to pieces, Daniel grabbed Jacob’s hand and pulled him out of the house and to safety. “Jacob why are you so selfish? You could have got us killed! You always think about yourself, for once just do as your told,” Daniel cried.

Ashamed, Jacob looked down at his picture, it was covered in pieces of broken glass. Jacob felt like he had never felt before, he felt guilty like it was all his fault. Shockingly, the blitz was still going on. The family of five were now cold, hungry, petrified and worried about how they will get themselves out of this mess…

There’s only one question. Are they safe enough?

Letters From The Lighthouse

This Term we have been reading an interesting book Letters From The Lighthouse. It is a book about a girl called Olive who has an older sister Sukie and little brother Cliff. Olive had lived during World War 2 in London.

Olive had gone to see a movie with her siblings and an air raid had begun, so they had to run to an air raid shelter. Sukie got lost during the air raid and didn’t end up coming home. The next day Olive and Cliff were told they’d be evacuated to Budmouth point. Monday they were evacuated and went to the person who would care for them Queenie. Then Esther (a Jewish girl) stayed at Queenie’s too and Olive and Cliff ended up at the lighthouse (Esther’s home.) Then a few days later some people (all of them Jewish) came to the lighthouse to hide and one of them was Esther’s Dad, a doctor. The next day Cliff was very ill and had to go to the local doctor. However the doctor did nothing and they had to go to Esther’s Dad. He said that Cliff had to go to the hospital and fast.But Olive didn’t go with Cliff, Esther did.Then their Mum came down and told Olive that she was a spy not her sister.

That is all we have read so far. I hope you have enjoyed listening to the class book year six Bluejay have been reading.

☠ The Ghostly Shadow ☠

Deep in the woods is a eerie and damp place. The bendy trees swayed in the howling wind; whilst the fog covered what really is beneath the mist of this alarming place was a tall figure of a person that seemed to be a shadow. Oddly, the figure stood still… Not a breath of air could be heard from him. He didn’t even blink. The rickety fence surrounding the stone path.
