100 word challenge: The Yeti


We were climbing to the top of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, we saw something really weird. It was footprints, on the ground, but not normal footprints… huge ones! We couldn’t believe it! We took as many photos as we could. When we got back we’d be on the news! We didn’t even worry about finishing our adventure. We were too excited. We rushed down the mountain. Unfortunately, we had climbed quite a bit, so it was a long way back. Suddenly we heard growling behind us. We spun around, seeing the Yeti, the very thing that had made the footprints. With one quick swipe, it killed us, taking the photos with it, never to be seen again.


100 word challenge: … then suddenly it went dark…


I am in my lounge room watching TV and eating a bowl of ice-cream. I’m watching this crappy show because there’s nothing else on. It’s about a kid who was watching TV and then the lights when out and he heard growling and then a monster ate him. It sucks. I have to admit, though, I did get a little bit scared when he heard growling. But only a little bit scared. Finally it finished and I turned over the channel, but then suddenly it went dark. I looked around, slightly scared. It must be the power lines, I thought. But then I stopped. Oh no. I had just heard growling.

100 word challenge: The laughing seal


I like ice-cream. It’s delicious. Mouth-wateringly delicious. So delicious that even my dog who doesn’t even like dog food likes it. But I hate when it gets dropped in dog poo. I really really really hate when it gets dropped in dog poo. I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY hate when it gets dropped in dog poo. I don’t mind when it happens to other people. I actually like when it happens to other people because it’s funny. But I hate when it happens to me. And that’s what happened just then. I looked up sadly and saw… A SEAL LAUGHING AT ME!!!!

100 word challenge: Cushion Scarlet Annoying Watered Violin


I hate violins. They are so high-pitched and squeaky and annoying. And they remind my of that fateful day. It was probably the unluckiest day in my entire life. Well, probably not the most unluckiest day in my entire life. The most unluckiest day in my entire life was when I spewed all over myself when I was on a roller-coaster and some went on the ride and stuffed up the system and the ride stopped and I didn’t have my seat-belt on and I flew out and broke my arm. Then on the way to the hospital the car ran out of fuel and we had to stop and get out. On the other side of the road was a cushion shop. We bought a scarlet one for me to rest my arm on while dad went and bought some petrol. Finally dad came back with petrol and some Gatorade for us all. I didn’t like mine though so I watered it onto the bushes. And that was the most unluckiest day of my life. The one about the violin was probably the second most unluckiest.

100 word challenge- …but then the flash made me…


I hate school photo day. It sucks. Everything always has to go wrong. Last year I blinked when the school picture guy took the photo and the year before that I fell off the seat. It’s like I’m cursed. Anyway, it just so happens that today is school picture day. I hate that. I really hate that. I REALLY REALLY REALLY hate that. EVERY SINGLE TIME something goes wrong. But I’m not going to let anything happen this time. I am going to completely focus on it. So when the guy told me to sit on the seat, I did it as carefully as I could. The man said “Say cheese!” and took the photo. But then the flash made me sneeze! NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Another school photo ruined! NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

100 word challenge: …when all of a sudden…


All I wanted was a hamburger. That’s it. One hamburger. That’s all I wanted. ONE SINGLE HAMBURGER! ONE! But no. I was reaching for it when all of a sudden my stupid, annoying sister grabbed it.

100 word challenge- News report



A frightful thing has just happened at the Gillion Fair, which resulted in the death of two young girls. At the time of the incident, the famous Gillion Merry-go-round was working just fine. Unfortunately, the person who ran it forgot to tighten the screws today, making the horses snap off their ropes, taking the lives of two small children with them. Luckily, only 2/7 of the kids riding it died, though it is still very sad.


 Here is a picture of the incident:

BTN- 20 years of Harry Potter



summary insights recalls  questions

This video was about how old the Harry Potter books are. The Harry Potter series is 20 years old. Quidditch is now an actual sport. The Philosopher’s stone was rejected by publishers many times and initially only 500 copies were made. It has been translated into 73 different languages. When was the first Harry Potter book drafted? When was the final Harry Potter book made? Harry Potter wasn’t actually made that long ago.
