the tiger was blocking our escape by Lexi

My name is Ben Creature, I am stranded on a jungle island in Asia. I'm hungry, dehydrated and lonely. However, at first I wasn’t alone. I'm an orphan. Me and my friend Oliver were travelling to our new home before the accident happened. I can picture it in my mind. The tortured screams still ring in my ears. Moments after the plane crash, we ran seeking shelter but the tiger was blocking our escape. Suddenly he pounced, missing me but not Oliver. That was the last time I saw him and possibly the last time I'll see civilisation ever again.

At the zoo, my little sister Zoe begged us to go to the tiger enclosure. I disliked tigers, so I didn't want to go. She cried until I agreed. The door was open, and a zoo keeper was inside. Zoe ran ahead and tapped on the glass. The zoo keeper waved at us, and beckoned us over. "Hello, I need two helpers to help me feed the tiger," He said. 
"Yeah!" Shouted Zoe, dragging me into the enclosure and through the door. I cautiously did the job, then we turned around, and the tiger was blocking our escape!

…the tiger was blocking our escape…by Maya

Last night I went to a Halloween Party. Lots of people were dressed as animals yet one costume really stood out. This person was dressed as a fearless tiger. Nobody knew who he was. He acted really suspicious like he was up to something bad. There was something frightening in his glare that gave us all goosebumps. He stood in the doorway watching everyone dance. Nobody dared to speak to him. He held a cigar which eventually filled the room with nose-blocking smoke. Then suddenly the curtains caught fire! Everyone panicked and ran but the tiger was blocking our escape...

Yesterday, me and my friend Sophie went to the zoo and we saw a lot of animals for example, tigers, llamas, giraffes, elephants, pandas and lions, but the most common spot we were at was the tiger enclosure because we had to do a news report about tigers and their lives and where they live. After a couple of minutes, we didn't realise that the zoo had closed down, so me and Sophie were walking around and we saw the fire door open so we ran towards it and there we found the tiger was blocking our escape.... 

The Eye of the Tiger by Clara

We were trapped. The tiger was blocking our escape. Harvey was trying to distract it, but there was no point. I sank to the floor, wishing we had never gone looking for the mystical treasure of Zirifion. It turned out that the treasure was the tiger. Apparently, every day, the tiger would lie down and create a diamond, life-sized version of it. Suddenly, I felt a surge of power. I cried, "Harvey, get away!" Charging towards the tiger, I shoved it to the side, grabbed Harvey's hand, and knocked open the door. The sunlight had never felt so amazingly rejuvenating.

One sunny Saturday morning, as a family we decided  to go on a family trip so we went to Woburn Safari Park. You go around in your car but if you want you can get out to look closer. We went round and we looked at loads of different animals like lions, elephants, zebras, giraffe and monkeys. Finally, we got round to the tigers and we got out of the car to get a close look and then we wanted to go and look at a different creature so we got back in the car but the the tiger was blocking our escape.

Today we are going to the zoo. I am very excitedMy favourite animais the tiger because they have pretty colours on their fur it looks so fluffy.  
We are at the zoo now there was really bad traffic. I wanted to go see the tigers but we walked around the rest of the zoo first. Every one ran of screaming saying, 
We ran to escape........... we were the last ones to go to the exit but the tiger was blocking our escape..... 

…the tiger was blocking our escape…by Madeleine

Freddie and I went on a trip to the zoo. We went everywhere: to the different cafes and gift shops and to see all the animals such as monkeys, fish, pigs, gorillas, orangutans, giraffes, elephants, tigers and lions. When we got to the penguins we noticed that the zoo was closed so we were all alone. All of a sudden, the animals managed to escape and ran everywhere chasing us, we were very scared so we started to run to the entrance. As we were running, a tiger came and jumped in our path, the tiger was blocking our escape!

…the tiger was blocking our escape…by Grace E

The tiger was blocking our escape. I looked at Rory's face. He looked as terrified as me. If we don’t make it out of this cave I am blaming him. He was the one who insisted on going into the cave, now we are very close to getting eaten by a tiger. It had orange, fiery eyes. Like fire. It's back was arched and it's neck was raised. High and proud. It was thinking. Thinking dangerous thoughts and planning cunning plans on how to kill them or torture them. They dare not move. Their feet were glued to the spot.

My name is John. You may know my father, Howard. He's a famous journalist that travels the globe looking for new species like the underwater tiger from Pakistan. Soon after he came home from his last trip, he disappeared. I found his journal from the year 2003. I gathered the family to read the journal and I read the first few lines aloud.
 'I'm staying in Pakistan with the expedition. The underwater tiger is an amazing creature. We accidentally slipped into his pool of murky green water. We looked up and the fearsome tiger was blocking our escape.'

…the tiger was blocking our escape…by Grace B

Today, I am going to Lincolnshire Wildlife Park, which is near Skegness, with my family. 
Once we got there I was jumping for joy as I saw a baby tiger, I could not wait to go inside. When we got inside I said to my mum, “Can I go and look at the baby tigers with Abigail?” 
Mum replied, “Yes as long as you are careful.” 

So, we ran as fast as we could to the tiger cage. When we got there, we were told to stay where we were because the tiger was blocking our escape.

energetic hurried sandwich white battery by Lexi,

A battery, a battery? Really Dad! 10 years and you still can't pull yourself together enough to pack my lunch. All I need is: 1 Sandwich (preferably white bread) and maybe a chocolate bar. Not an energetic battery! As you could imagine, not the best impression for the first day in a new school. I hurried down the corridor before anyone could see me. This made me think. Had I eaten a battery before? Had people seen me eat a battery or worse? This is all Dad's fault. If he hadn't broken up with mum, we wouldn’t be here now.

energetic hurried sandwich white battery by Jack

I'm doing a school project and it's all about how energetic men can power a battery nobody knows if it’s even possible yet, and that’s why our class is on the case. We hurried and tried to figure out if it’s possible but then the bell rang, and It was time for lunch. I had a sandwich while my friend Jake had a packet of crisps. After that we went home and by the time I got home our house was painted white which really didn’t suit it. So, what do you think? Can energetic people power batteries?

The energetic white rabbit hurried out of sight, clutching his sandwich. "That's peculiar," thought Alice, weaving a chain of daisies absent-mindedly, "Maybe I should follow him." The rabbit ran to a mound of earth with a doormat saying, 'There's No Place Like Home', muttering "I hope the battery isn't flat!" Alice slid through the hole, very uncomfortably. She found the smallest door she had ever seen. Contorting so her body was bent in half, she finally managed to push her way through. The white rabbit was crouched in front of a minute television screen, intently staring at a nature programme.

It was one of those days where everything goes wrong. The battery had just died on my phone and as I bit into my sandwich “yuck” white bread! I only like brown. I decided to go the park and get an ice cream I hurried because it was going to shut in 10 minutes. When I got there, it had already shut. I was going to go to the other ice cream shop down the road, but I wasn’t feeling very energetic. The day just couldn’t get any worse. When I finally got my ice cream it dropped on the floor.

Emily lives in London with her mum, dad and her energetic and annoying sister. She loves her laptop and when someone touches it she screams as though they have just broken it. One day, after school she went to chat to her friends on social media. Then the most terrible thing happened (according to her). The battery died. She hurried downstairs to get the charger. Her sister grabbed a sandwich, and pushed it into the cd player in the white laptop and jammed it. When Emily came back with her charger she saw the burnt sandwich she screamed.

The Statue by Maddie

One stormy night, a monk was sat on a bench outside the town. He was all alone that night wondering if he would actually find true love. All of a sudden, a cackle sound came behind him, he quickly jumped off the bench and looked behind and saw nothing. He was intrigued to know what it was, so he followed the sound into the heart of the woods. There he was all alone in the woods and could see nothing. An evil witch suddenly popped up behind him and turned him into stone. The statue has been there ever since.

The statue by Daisy

Jake walked to his Nan's. She lived at the back of a large forest but every time Jake walked past this tree it felt very cold and he always thought he saw a dark hooded man. When he arrived at his Nan's, he asked her why it was so cold in the woods. She told him there was a story that there was an old man’s dog who had died next to a tree there. Only he was to visit his grave, so he sent a cloaked man over there to guard the grave. “But I don’t think it is true!” she said.   

Hooded figure by Lexi

Legend says he wanders the streets at night searching for victims that he can turn to stone. Dare you look into his eyes; you too will turn to stone forever. That was the story, however I was told too late. As I patrolled down the street, I came across a handsome statue I had never seen before. Its face was shielded by a brown velvet cloth. Unlike the rest of the statue, I could pull it down. I looked into mysterious grey eyes. This was no statue ...this was the Demon of Sheffield! Petrified, I turned to run, but my legs wouldn’t move. No! I was turning to stone... 

The Demon by Ella

Out in the wood the stone figure of a Demon still remains. Children tell tales when they hear the word Demon. One of the rumours had spread around the school in just one day. The rumour had it, he used to be a man who had stolen two sheep to feed his starving family, so the Lord of the land made him a Demon and turned him to stone. Many children are scared, and they should be as the curse was set for one thousand years, but no one knows when it was done and when it will undo and he will come back to life and seek his revenge....

The hooded figure - by Tegan

This morning I was walking through the forest and I saw this scary looking creature standing there in a black cloak with a hood over his head. As I walked over, it was staring at passers-by. I was a bit worried about what to do. Should I be afraid - should I not? I was starting to walk away when I realised he was staring at me as I walked away. I walked past it and it was still staring at me I didn't know what to do. Will I ever see it again I hope not?

A walk in the forest by Scarlett

Yesterday me and my best friend Millie were walking through Kielder Forest whilst on our camping holiday. Suddenly we saw a tall, black, glossy statue of a monk. We were both scared as we had read that this statue only appeared in December alone. If this wasn't bad enough, it is known to come alive on the 12th of December at 12pm and grab anything in sight. We began to shake with fear and didn't know what to do. Then as I looked at my watch we realised it was 11.59pm and the date was the 12th of December!

The stranger by Alexander

A walk through a forest. It was a great day. Perfect, as a matter of fact. I was walking in the forest, and saw a brown, medium size man. I approached him, and asked, "Are you okay...sir?" No response. I ask again, but louder, "Are you okay...sir, answer me please." The only words I could describe of him were, no face, no head, no arms? It was confusing. It could have been a statue perhaps. Until, it gently turned its head at me. "Sir, honestly, please answer me." It then walked towards me. I then got scared and the top of my lungs. I ran and ran and ran and NEVER looked back. I dialled 999 and he was arrested. I never felt so good.  

The Thief by Natasha

In the middle of a forest, near a holiday village just outside of Nottingham, was where a creepy thief could be found. He always dressed in black - not one thing he wore was a different colour.
Whilst all the holidaymakers were out enjoying their holidays, he was breaking into their villas and stealing their valuables. All the holidaymakers and staff were afraid of him as he was known to be violent. The police could never catch him, until one day they caught him in the middle of a robbery. He was sent to prison for a year. When he got out he was a totally different person and never stole again.

Grim Reaper by Grace B

Here we see a statue that is thought to be the Grim Reaper overlooking a graveyard. Some people are afraid and feel uncomfortable around him. But there is no need to be afraid as he is a friendly soul who comforts the souls he takes. It is believed that his statue remains there to over watch the graveyard and protect the souls. Sometimes late at night people claim to have seen the statue move, however there is no evidence and the sightings have only happened when only one person is present. Since the statue arrived there have been no crimes.

Bringer of Death Greets You by Clara

My name is Death.
I did not choose my name, it came with the job. Are you screaming? 
Lots of people do. 
They like to argue that their time is not up, but they are just cluttering up the precious space Earth has. I am fair, if not polite or respectful. Hey, if you had an eternity of people whimpering, “I can’t die yet!” you would be annoyed. A simple thank-you would be very satisfying every now and then. 
I must get back to the point, this is my way of saying, “I am not a bad person.”

Robert the Robber by Maddie

Robert, a robber, always referred to himself as the greatest villain of all time even though he was only ten. His brother, who was called Robin, also wanted to be a robber with Robert, so they became a group to get back at their older brother Jamie [ who was 13].

A few weeks later, they decided it was time, everything was in place; ready to steal Jamie's Lego, which seemed weird but it hurt when it got thrown at them. When they got the Lego from Jamie's room, Robin asked Robert, "But where would we hide it all? "

…but where would we hide it all?…by Millie

The police are onto me. I can't hide. How long will I stay in jail? Why did we do that! UGH! We're so stupid! I can still escape...but where would we hide it all?...I could ditch them? I could make it look like it was their fault? Thank god I WORE gloves. Where are the others now anyway? In jail? Hiding? Looking? Disposing the evidence? Making sure it isn't found? I hope they don't get to me next. I'll make sure they don't! What if the others tell about me? I'll just have to tell on them first.

…but where would we hide it all?…by Maya

Sam and Mark are best friends. Their school have come up with a new system to get their pupils involved in World Kindness Day. Pupils can earn Kindness Cards by being kind to someone, however a teacher has to spot them first. A pupil can exchange them for a prize. The friends aren’t very kind but love getting prizes. They had a plan to earn one Kindness card and photocopy millions. Mark asked, "But where would we hide it all?"
“We’ll leave them in there for a night but we’ll move them into the old,unused storage cupboard.” Sam answered.

The Pirate’s Gold by Clara

“Shush, they’ll hear us!” the pirate whispered to his fellow law-breakers. The cave was empty except for the treasure chests with broken seals. “We need to be quick and quiet, or we will be dead!” another urged. A swift look around showed there was no more gold to be pocketed. “Do we have a safe hiding place?” Peg-Leg Pete twitchingly asked. “Don’t question me! I trust my instincts, and I will find a place to hide,” the leader, Bluebeard, commanded. Later that night, Peg-Leg Pete wrote, “The treasure needs to be safe, but where would we hide it all?

But where would we hide it all? by Lexi

Trembling, I stepped into the gloomy darkness of the cave. Standing next to me was my best friend, although he wasn’t at all scared. He was chatting away by my side. I didn’t reply, after all he was the least of my worries. I was putting my life at risk right then and there. Suddenly, we approached the last corner. Behind that wall was...well we were about to find out! Stood before us were mountains of gold and jewellery. "Let's take some," he said. 
"But where would we hide it all?" I replied. 
Suddenly the entrance closed. We were stuck.

But where would we hide it all? by Grace B

Tom and his four friends went to watch a football match, Sam said, “I dare you to go and pinch some sweets from the corner shop!”
James said, “I double donkey dare you.”
Tom didn’t want to go and pinch some sweets because it’s wrong. Tom said to the others, “You go first and I will go last into the shop.”
After they all came out of the shop, Tom went in and brought his sweets. As he came out of the shop Sam said, “But where would we hide it all?
James said, "The potting sheds on the allotment."

Ghosts by Jack

It was a spooky Halloween night and every boy and girl were out trick or treating, but then a reporter photographed the dead rising from the ground, they were scared and frightened of them but it wasn’t as it seemed. The not so scary spirits were out shopping and just walked around the gloomy town. Everybody wanted to see the spirits in person, but they couldn’t see them as they could only be seen on photographs. So, everybody took out their phones and cameras and started taking pictures. Finally, somebody saw a ghost in a picture on their phone; which proved to the world that ghosts really do exist. 

Ghosts by Estera

In a shopping mall on the 10 of November 2017 there has been serious incident. A normal man wanted to take a photo of the crisp view of the shops and has noticed that there where ghost on the photo. 

He has reported this to us and we would also need to inform you that on the same day a lady started to see ghosts. She thought that it was a result of taking strong cold tablets but now she is terrified too. If any of you see, hear or notice something white then report it to us straight away. 

Ghosts by Olivia D

I see people having fun and few people are faint and ghostly. A woman looked at the camera with a scary face look, maybe she was laughing at the man, or something. The tall buildings cover other houses behind, I wonder if the other people see these faintly ghost people. I think the humans go there to have a fun time and spend time with their friends, brothers or sisters. I do not think the ghost people are having fun because they do not look that happy; it looks like they miss when they were alive with their kids. 

Ghosts by Daisy

Izzy was just about to settle down to watch her favourite TV program called, ‘A Ghost In My Town’ when her mum shouted, “Can you go to the shops please we’ve ran out of milk.” Izzy got up not wanting to go and headed out. It was strange, the town seemed empty and cold. But when she half closed her eyes she could see people faintly appearing. Her head started to hurt and as she closed her eyes, she could hear her mum, “Izzy , wake up!” As she came round her TV program was on. Was it real what just happened? Izzy wasn’t sure.  

Ghosts by Maddie

In the run up to Christmas some strange things were happening in Newcastle. There were people rushing around but there were also ghosts! You might think that ghosts aren't real, but think again. These strange ghouls keep popping up everywhere, it is believed that they appear from a basement on Nithdale Close. Do not worry; they are not dangerous, except for one who is Maggie Balder. If you see Maggie she looks like this: she has a red jacket and a black shirt on, she also has black ripped jeans and red high tops. Remember you can't see her properly!
