Eden Camp trip!

Dear Diary,

On November the 6th we went on an amazing trip to Eden Camp. The trip was fun but we had to get on the bus at 9 o’clock in the morning! We were on the bus for about 1 and a half hours.It was the funniest trip ever,people were sick,people were singing and people telling funny jokes.One of the people who were sick was Euan then after was the annoying Travis.I was sat across from Travis and he was almost sick on me!After the 1 and a half hours had flew by we were finally there.

As I got up I could feel  the fresh air and a nice breeze as the automatic bus doors opened.We got off of the bus and lined up with our partners and headed to the lunch area to put our heavy frustrating bags down.

Talkatively, we strolled towards our first hut.As we walked to our first hut we saw at least 10 schools.IT WAS MAYHEM! Everybody was waiting to get in the smelly large hut but there were a lot of other schools in the huts so it was cramped.In our first hut we saw very creative artefacts about rationing and how poor people were, all the stuff there was historical and none of it made us think it’s rubbish because it wasn’t.We saw a family that was in a WW2 house it looked traumatising they didn’t have beds or consoles,they either had to sleep on the floor or a ruined sofa.Also there was a house that had holes in the walls caused by the deafening bombs.

We walked to the next hut patiently because of how many schools were there.The next hut was my favourite part ,we walked in and saw WW2 guns and a display of an army ground.It was a realy good part to go in because all of the setup and all the guns was absolutely brilliant.Next up was the blackout!it was pitch black and people were scaring each other.It was the funniest thing by far, me and Jack both scared some people and they were frightened to death.In the blackout I realy hurt my head because I banged it on the wall, also we were followed by a really noisy school.

Finally it was lunch! I was starving I could not wait to eat my delicious sandwiches.It was a tight squeeze but we all managed to fit in,it was so cramped that we didn’t have much room to eat our dinner.

Lastly the gift shop, there was a huge variety of things to choose from.I had a look around and I saw some scents from WW2 I bought two of them,a sweet shop scent and a tea wagon scent. The sweet shop smelt like old toffee and the tea wagon smelt like a year gone off tea because it smelt mank!I also bought two bag of sweets.

We had a safe jurney home thankfully no one was sick, we were all talking about what we got from the gift shop.

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?

The mythical shadow

After this day I was scared for life…

Regretfully, I was walking back from school alone and I decided to take a little shortcut through the alarming forest. So I set off, as fast as a flash without any concerns at all but when I stepped into the forest and straight away I felt a shiver on my spine. The crooked trees swayed to the wind and bent over the razor-sharp fence. I saw I ghostly shadow watching me ask turned around. I stepped forward a little and it raced towards the fencing. I spun around thinking I was seeing things but no there it was staring into my soul. “Hey!!” I shouted and then started running. I blinked. It was gone. Ever since that haunted day I never walked down that haunted path through the forest ever again…

The Bombing World War ll

Frightening, terrified and horrid, the dark black jets fly through the sky over all the bombing and explosions. Meanwhile, Tommy was watching the furious explosions. His older brother Max shouted to him “Tommy come down hear now!” Tommy rushed down and grabbed his precious things.

Mum told Tommy and Max to quickly go and get their younger sisters Ariana and Esme. “AAaaaaaaaaa!!!” Esme screamed as everyone ran upstairs including Ariana. They grabbed the girls and ran outside as quick as they can into the shelter. Tommy ran back inside with no explanation.Awfully he went to get his dads picture and a big bad explosion happened.Max went after him and grabbed his arm and ran back to the shelter.” What were you thinking?”shouted Max. “Get in ,quick.” Mum whispered. The two boys jumped in and mum shut the door and they couldn’t come out until the bombing ended.


Woeful World War

Confidently the nauseating pilots of the horrific planes soared frantically through the sky dropping heavy, colossal bombs onto the helpless streets of London. The emotional, intense boy stared through the glass window at the never-ending nightmare. Bombs dropped, people screamed and fire burned right before his eyes. “Ethan!” his mum yelled “Ethan! Get away from that ancient window, gather your siblings and get in the bomb shelter. We have no time to lose!”

As quick as lightening, Ethan shot up the stairs quietly and grabbed his sisters, Mia and Lacey and brother Riley. As they went down the stairs carelessly another bomb dropped in their tiny front garden. “Quick get in the shelter” Ethan shouted. They could smell smoke coming in through the cracked windows.

Slowly,as a few of the planes flew to the ground dodging bullets,as the sirens cried out as a warning people rushed to their shelters, Ethan ran back to the half-crushed house to get the photograph of his father who was fighting in the war. Ethan was reaching out for the picture when… BOOM! A bomb had dropped and all of the ornaments had smashed bringing the photograph with them. The dusty, fragile photograph had smashed”Noooooo” Ethan squealed as he grabbed the photo and went back  to the shelter.

“What did you think you were doing?, you could have been killed! Ridiculous boy!” BANG…



Planes, loud horrific and full of bombs soaring through the blacked out sky. The air raid sirens sounded loud and clear through the foggy sky. Bombs dropped from the planes and made the ground a pattern of explosions. Families fled to the bomb shelters just as the bombs crashed into the families homes. The huge bombs made the streets erupt into showers of concrete and dirt. Terrified, a little boy watched as London was turned into a huge bonfire of smoke and smog. Suddenly his mother grabbed his shoulder and said “Peter comes to the bomb shelter and Edward get Lucy and Susan!” The family ran to the bomb shelter but suddenly Peter said “Dad!” And turned around. Edward ran to get him and reached him just as Peter grabbed the first photo of their dad. Edward grabbed Peter just as a bomb exploded outside. The window shattered inwards with the force of the blast they dived to the ground and crawled out of the house. When they got out they started running into the shelter.


The Blitz

The lights went out, it was a blackout. All of a sudden the only light you could see was fire and searchlights. A small boy peered out of a illuminated window. His mum suddenly screamed at him in a panic. Boom! Bang! Crash! The bomb hit the defenceless house. The scared family, shaking and shivering ran into the war zone to the shelter. They made it. All that was left  of the house was a pile of steaming wood.



One terrifying blurred out night, there was a ww2 bombing in an innocent and fearful city. The plane pilots flew straight through the black, misty sky.

A family’s minute and endangered house stood there with its capacity of five people. The where called: Edward, Peter, Lucy, Susan and their mum (the mum’s name remains unknown.) They could all hear the atomic bombs dropping down on the novel city.

Edward (peering out of the window) saw the enemy planes. Lucy could hear bombing in the air and screaming on the patented flooring. Mum could smell the horrid, disgusting and outrageous smoke slithering threw the ancient house and on the misty, minefield streets. Peter (the eldest sibling) felt all the glass pieces shatter against his tender skin. Susan could touch the furious fire sucking closer and closer to her poor fingers.

Running for their lives, the family scattered towards the safe Anderson Shelter and fortunately made it there. When they got in their hearts were racing faster than a cheetah chasing its prey. They all gathered and hugged each other like there was no tomorrow.

The Biltz of World War 2

The lights beamed across the gray smoky sky. Planes flew across the deadly smoky sky. Slowly the fatal bombs started to blow across the sky and people started scream and run to the bomb shelters. The  air sirens wailed as deadly, ferocious  bombs dropped from the sky. a small boy called peter stared at the bombs dropping down on the houses. Peter’s mum came running into the living room to grab him and take him to the bomb shelter. She ran upstairs, exhausted, and collected Lucy then ran out to the bomb shelter. “Wait, dad!” screamed Peter then peter ran inside to the living room to grab the picture of his father.
