My Special Puppy by Caitlin

Once upon a time there lived a girl called Cleo. She was fourteen years old. One day on the way to the shop she saw a sign saying "Puppy Sale". So of course she went over and saw a puppy at her feet crying. She said "This is the one" and he smiled up at her! She called him Spike. He was very special to Cleo and Spike was her first puppy.

He loved Cleo as much as Cleo loved him. They had the best time together, and he would even sleep in her room. They had fun playing games like fetch and frisbee together.

Cleo said; "He's my special puppy and I will love him forever!"

William Shakespeare by Saffron

A long time ago a man called William Shakespeare was born. In our days William Shakespeare is famous.

He wrote lots of plays like Romeo and Juliet. It is a good story and I will tell a little bit of it for you all!

Romeo and Juliet
Once upon a time a girl called Juliet loved a man called Romeo. They loved each other but were not allowed to be with each other. So they made a poison drink so that they could be together in heaven. However the drink only killed Juliet because she was so soft and gentle. So Juliet died but Romeo did not.
That was a play that William Shakespeare wrote. It is called a tragedy because it has a sad ending.
"Good Night, Good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow."

Westlife in Croke Park

On Saturday I went to my cousin's house in Dublin. Then I went to Croke Park with them. A new girl band came on first playing Wonderland. After that John and Edward came out. They played 'Ghostbusters', that was very funny! JLS were singing good songs. they played 'One Shot' and 'Everybody in Love'.

Then at a quarter past eight Westlife came out. They were brilliant singers. My favourite song was 'What About Now'.

For the Finale they sang 'You Raise Me Up'. Everyone sang along and it was excellent! At the end they brought the children out. They said goodbye but everyone cheered and they came out again and played another song and gave it a great ending!
