Each pupil in Year 3 will be asked to contribute their own section of the story.

Now for the exciting part……. when we have completed our class story, it will be sent off to the printers and be printed.

Year 3, you are all brilliant writers so I want you to use your imaginations and produce an exciting adventure for the children in the picture.

Could the children travel to the past? Could they set sail and discover a new land? Could they get stranded on an island? Could they get lost and have to try and find their way back home? Could they sail into the future? Could they have made a time travelling boat? Could they discover a new creature or animal that helps them? Could one of them fall out and need to be rescued? Could their boat capsize and they find themselves in Neptune’s kingdom, being rescued by pirates or have an underwater adventure? The choice is yours !

I am really looking forward to reading your writing. Parents don’t forget you can help too. Happy writing Year 3!

    It was the middle of the summer holidays and the four children had gone to visit their Auntie and Uncle in Cornwall. They loved travelling down to see them because every time they visited something different happened. It was such a magical and exciting place to stay.

    The children had spent the day rummaging around in the dusty, old barn. All of a sudden, there was a loud shout from the very back of the barn.

    “Hey! Look at this, look what I have found!” shouted the youngest child. “Why don’t we take it down to the old cart tracks by the sea and see if we can launch it?”

    So the very next day, that’s what they did and that’s when their adventures began…….

    Benjamin Aikman · 19th January 2017 at 7:37 am

    The sun was blazing on the children’s backs as they reached the old cart tracks by the sea. Timmy, James and Mary dashed ahead excited by the natural sight and smells of the clear, blue, glistening ocean. It had been a while since they had seen it last. It was a calm peaceful day as they clambered around the raggedy rocks.

    Timmy shouted “Come on Albert, come and feel the sea it’s amazing”.

    Albert carefully joined the others on the crooked, craggy rocks. He stood still and silently and looked at the inviting environment, the gentle breeze exciting him for the first time in a long time knowing that this gentle weather will take them all on an adventure.

    The children skipped down the rocks and shouted in glee as they hurried to set the heavy cart onto the rickety wooden tracks. Albert and James remained at the back whilst Mary and little Timmy sat in the front. It took all of Albert’s and James’ strength to push the cart and then they were off, the wheels of the cart turning and creaking, rolling into the unknown.

      Mrs Scallan · 19th January 2017 at 3:43 pm

      Wow ! What a brilliant start to our class story. Well done Benjamin. I wonder what will happen next ?

    Chapter 2
    As the strong winds blew, the stormy rain fell, but the children were still traveling. Suddenly, Mary slipped out of the wooden cart. James dived in to grab her, then, he remembered she could swim. As Mary and James swam to the surface of the ocean, they realized it was midnight. They found the rail a few minutes after Timmy was waving at them to guide them back to the cart. In the distance, they could see an island that they were heading for. It looked dark and blurry. As they got closer, they could see more of the island. “I wonder what could be living on there?” asked Mary. “I don’t know, but I hope whatever is living on the mysterious island is friendly”, answered James. As they bumped into the unknown island, two strange but friendly looking life forms came out from behind the trees, one red and the other orange. “Welcome to Ninjitsu-island, my name is Zhorshana the orange ninja.” the creature nicely said. “And my name is Jenconisan the red nin…” Grrrr!” growled something in the distance. “Oh no, it’s a Jawtooth-congrate!” whispered Jenconisan as he froze. As the Jawtooth-congrate crept up behind Jenconisan, Zhorshana quickly kicked it with the side of her foot. “What is that?!” Timmy exclaimed, worriedly. “Well, that was a Jawtooth-congrate. They can only be destroyed by a touch of a human-being’s magic. Jawtooth means bones never break and congrate means biggest monster”, replied Jenconisan. “Come on, let’s go to the den”, suggested Zhorshana. “Err, could we come to?” James asked. “Sure!” answered Zhorshana. At their den, they showed the children some battle moves but it was sunrise when they finished. They had to go back home. “Bye!” everyone said. As the children set off, in the middle of the railway track, there was a turning not to their Auntie’s and Uncle’s house but another adventure!

      Mrs Scallan · 23rd January 2017 at 6:45 am

      Well done Annabella what an adventure! I can’t wait to read what happens next.

    Jessica McHugh · 23rd January 2017 at 7:03 pm

    Chapter 3
    Back in the cart as they travelled onwards towards their Aunties and Uncles Mary saw a strange light in the distance. She asked James what is that as she pointed to the light,but James wasn’t sure as they moved closer and closer. James said I think it’s a time travelling portal,then with a flash of light they were transported back in time to when the dinosaurs roamed the earth.
    Mary and James where excited to see the dinosaurs,they watched their long necks eating the leafs from the humongous trees until they felt the ground shake really hard underneath there feet. They looked at each other and froze with fright as the T-Rex came closer and closer the children smelt his rotten breath on there faces and saw his sharp teeth and claws. The children ran as fast as lightening to the time travelling portal and jumped into the portal just as the T-Rex SNAPPED his jaws to eat them. Mary and James screamed with fear, the portal flashed and the children were back in the cart as James looked down he had T-Rex teeth marks in his t-shirt.
    James turned to Mary and said that is something we will ever forget!!!

      Mrs Scallan · 23rd January 2017 at 9:53 pm

      Well done Jessica this was an exciting part of our story.
      I wonder what will happen next?

    Matilda Caffrey · 27th January 2017 at 9:32 pm

    Chapter 4
    The petrified children were so distracted by the enormous teeth marks on James’s T-shirt they didn’t see on the dark horizon a huge iceberg. The raft was heading straight towards it with super speed.

    As their raft hit the iceberg they all started to tumble and fall into the icy, cold ocean water. They sank to the sea bed. They looked down and saw that they have tails instead of legs now.
    Mary excitedly says “WE’RE MERMAIDS AND MERMEN!”.
    Flapping their tails they start to swim up to the top the sea were Albert asks, “Where are we?”.
    Timmy replied, “We’re in the ocean, where’s our boat?”.

    The children looked around confused about where their raft had gone, until James spotted a plank of wood floating on the water.
    “That’s a piece of our boat” he said.
    “There’s another one,” said Timmy.
    “There’s a trail,” exclaimed Albert.
    “Let’s follow the trail” said Mary.

    The four children excitedly followed the trail. When they were swimming by they heard some muttering from under the water. The children dived under the water to see what the noise was. They found a sunken shipwreck that a family of fish had made a home. Their baby, little Lily had trapped her fin when a piece of the children’s raft had broken apart and landed on it. So the children tried to help Lily but the wood was too heavy for them. Mary asked the sea animals to help lift the plank of wood and together they freed Lily and help the fish family find a new home.
    The children said goodbye to the sea animals and swam to shore, once on land their tail disappeared and their legs reappeared.

      Mrs Scallan · 29th January 2017 at 9:25 pm

      Well done and thank you Matilda. what an imaginative piece of writing. I love how they became mermaids and mermen.
      Super. I wonder what will happen next? I can’t wait to read the next part

    Ben Tarpey · 31st January 2017 at 5:50 pm

    Timmy, Mary, James and Albert saw the same light as before, only this time it shone as brightly as the Northern Lights.
    As they walked towards the light, Mary was caressed by a sparkly, blue mist. Glancing nervously at the other three, she noticed that the mist was engulfing them too! Suddenly, the mist thickened and they all began to spin around at a supersonic speed. The deafening wind overwhelmed their senses and they quickly lost consciousness.

    Waking up, they found themselves in an unknown place.
    “Where do you think we are? This place looks so different to anywhere we’ve ever been before,” said Timmy with a puzzled look on his face. Before any of them had a chance to reply, a car-a flying car passed by.
    “We must be in the future!” exclaimed James. The others looked surprised but happy, however that didn’t last long.

    As they began to explore, they saw a sinister looking castle on the top of a steep hill. Albert, who loved anything spooky, wanted to follow the trail that led to the castle. Feeling frightened, the others trembled as they reluctantly followed him up the winding, stone path. They said nothing as they trudged up the hill but their heads were full of questions.

    Who or what would they find there?

      Mrs Scallan · 16th February 2017 at 10:42 pm

      Well done Ben, what an interesting part of the class story.

    Samuel brews · 31st January 2017 at 7:08 pm

    The four children set sail it was foggy and cold the waves carried the children further and further into the unknown.

    After what seemed like forever the fog seemed to part and the children spotted an island in the distance. They reached the island and disembarked the boat. They all decided it would be fun to explore the island so that’s what they did. They searched through trees, huts, tree houses and burrows but not a person or a creature could be found.

    After hours of searching the children decided it was time to go home. Unbeknown to the children they hadn’t secured the boat properly and it had drifted back out to sea.

    “Oh no!” cried all the children. “It looks like we are stranded…. what do we do now?”

    Suddenly, James dived into the icy, cold water and grabbed the boat. He swam back to the others and they all got back on the boat.

      Mrs Scallan · 16th February 2017 at 10:41 pm

      What a super piece of writing Samuel! I wonder what will happen next in our story.
      Are the four children going to be safe?

    Evie Psaila · 1st February 2017 at 6:54 pm

    As they got closer to the eerie, forbidden castle, it looked rickety. The ancient, grey walls of the castle were wrapped in a thick fog. Low laying dark gloomy clouds covered the top of the tower.
    As the children walked under the portcullis, it dropped suddenly. Mary screeched! The others were just as frightened. They dashed like darts across the narrow, wooden, unstable bridge. Their hearts beating like the sound of galloping horses. James opened the hefty, squeeky door – eeeeeeeeek!

    “This is a frightening adventure,” Timmy whispered in a shaky voice.
    “Stick together and we will be safe,” replied James.

    The lights were dim. There were candles scattered around the giant looking ball room, flickering in the wind from the broken glass windows.There was a loud sound- it echoed all around. A mysterious ghost – like shadow flew across the landing.
    “What was that?” cried Mary.

      Mrs Scallan · 1st February 2017 at 10:08 pm

      Well done Evie, I wonder what it could be? I can’t wait to find out. This is getting exciting Year 3!

    Arley wakeling · 3rd February 2017 at 4:59 pm

    Timmy turned around and saw the large, shadowy figure floating at the top of the winding, rickety, old imperial staircase that led upstairs from the ballroom.

    Suddenly, Mary screeched with fright as the dark, shadowy figure flew down the imperial staircase and stopped at Mary as if Mary was somehow important. Mary was frozen in fear, the dark shadowy figure was tall, overbearing even phantom like , his eyes black as the night sky, his garments all filthy and grey.
    Timmy yelped, “James, help Mary, move her away from the ghost.”

    James came charging towards Mary, he grabbed her by the hand and they all hurtled up the imperial staircase, cobwebs getting caught in their clothes.

    As they reached the top of the imperial staircase, which seemed to take forever, they came to a halt, in front of them was a large, tyrannical, blood red door.

      Mrs Scallan · 16th February 2017 at 10:43 pm

      Some great description here, well done Arley.

    Darcie Bilton · 7th February 2017 at 6:26 pm

    As they opened the blood, red door they got a cool breeze. Mary rushed to the front to see what was happening but she accidentally pushed Timmy off the creeky, wooden balcony.
    “Timmy!” cried the three children.
    They rushed down the old,rotten staircase. When they reached the bottom they tried to get out but they were unable to do it.
    “I’m so scared” whispered James.
    “How will we get out?” cried Albert
    “It’s going to be okay boy’s calmb down” said Mary.

    Suddenly Mary spotted a plank of wood on th floor. She used the wood to open the jammed shut door. When they got out they found Timmy sitting in the cart.

    What will they find on their next adventure?

    Violet Langford · 7th February 2017 at 8:10 pm

    I think everyone is doing very well on the blog so far.
    I also loved doing the measuring and cannot wait to do a bit more on weighing things. Well done year 3.

    Gabby Simpson · 9th February 2017 at 6:25 pm

    The cart rolled along, when something happened. Something frightning happened.
    A sea-bear grabbed the cart and swam all the way to its home- a cave on the seabed, where it’s friends were waiting.
    Mary screamed, ” Ahhhhhh! The bear is going to eat us!”
    They arrived at the dirty, old cave. The humongous sea-bear licked his lips and was about to eat Albert when another sea-bear interrupted. “STOP right there!”
    “Why?” the sea-bear asked.
    “That boy is special. That boy is the special one! We need him to save us!” the sea-bear cried.
    Albert gasped. Was the sea-bear sure he was the special one?
    The sea-bear, who was going to eat Albert, put him down and moaned he was hungry. So the bears and the children set off in search of food.
    Albert was still shocked.
    What would he have to do to save the sea-bears?

      Mrs Scallan · 9th February 2017 at 10:06 pm

      Thank you Gabby, this is exciting. I wonder what will happen next?

    A Whipp · 15th February 2017 at 2:37 pm

    Albert woke up the next day still feeling tired and exhausted. It felt like their adventure was never going to end.
    Next, he woke up Mary and finally Timmy. It was very quiet and extremely dark.
    Where were the sea bears? and more importantly where was James?

      Mrs Scallan · 16th February 2017 at 10:44 pm

      Oh no where could James be? Well done Aimee.

    Max Lewis · 15th February 2017 at 2:50 pm

    “Stop!” shouted Albert.
    “Where are you going to?”
    At the far end of the cave Albert could see the shadow of the sea bears and James. He chased them, they turned left, then right, then they disappeared.

      Mrs Scallan · 16th February 2017 at 10:46 pm

      Well done Max, I wonder where they disappeared to?

    Daniel Fielding · 16th February 2017 at 9:56 am

    Albert turned a corner and a cool breeze washed over him. In front of Albert was a gigantic Yetti. It was 6 foot tall, had a face like an ape and was covered in smooth, sleek white fur. It’s teeth were razor sharp and filthy .
    Suddenly, the Yetti lumbered towards Albert and screeched loudly. Albert was frozen with fear .
    Albert gasped and wondered what on earth he was going to do ….

      Mrs Scallan · 16th February 2017 at 10:47 pm

      It must have been very scary seeing the yeti. Thank you Daniel.

    Myles Cunningham-Holt · 16th February 2017 at 11:00 am

    Albert glanced up and realised it wasn’t a Yetti, it was just a huge snowy mountain . His imagination was just playing tricks on him. He shouted the others to join him and then in the background he saw something move quickly.

    He walked with the others and the shadow disappeared. The children saw footprints in the snow and started to follow them. The footprints lead to a small cave hidden in the mountains. The cave was dark grey and very rocky. It was so dark and gloomy inside that the children couldn’t even see each other.
    All of a sudden, they heard a noise. What could it be? They all stopped and listened to see if they heard it again.

    Robbie Rowles · 16th February 2017 at 11:25 am

    The children were terrified and clutched each others hands in fear.
    “James might be there and he could be trouble ” whispered Mary
    “We have to go in ” exclaimed Albert fearfully .
    The children peered into the cave and took a step forward …

    Charlotte Hughes · 16th February 2017 at 1:46 pm

    It was a tight squeeze so the children had to crawl along the stinking, slimy, bumpy floor of the cave .Their hearts were beating like drums . Suddenly, the cave opened out and they were able to stand up at last .
    There was a light at the end of a passageway so the children headed towards it .
    Noise echoed around the cave
    ” I’m sure I can hear James shouting for help” whispered Mary.

    Mary glanced upwards and there above them was James trapped in a wooden cage ….

    Daisy Skorzewski · 16th February 2017 at 2:06 pm

    “Please, help me!” shouted James fearfully.
    Mary started to cry .
    “Don’t worry you two , I have a plan, ” explained Albert.

    Albert rooted in his backpack and pulled out his fishing knife . Timmy climbed onto Albert’s shoulders and slashed at the rope that was tied around the cage.
    “‘It’s not working, it’s not working, ” cried Timmy.
    “Please hurry,” screamed James.

    Just as Albert was about to tell them to keep calm , the door sprung open . The children helped James to the ground and hugged him tight to reassure him .The children carried on towards the light …

    Harrison Reid · 16th February 2017 at 2:21 pm

    Suddenly, the children heard an ear splitting roar.
    “Quick , run as fast as you can! ” screamed James.

    The children ran as fast as their legs would carry them . Their hearts were beating and thumping really fast.
    At the end of the tunnel they screeched to a halt .In front of them was a dusty, old cable car which had been running for ages the children quickly scrambled on and they descended downwards toward the bottom of the mountain.

    Violet Langford · 16th February 2017 at 2:48 pm

    Then all of sudden the mountain started to break apart! They started to slide down the slippery, muddy mountains.
    “AHHHHHHHH!!” shouted Mary and James.
    They ran over to the other side, luckily that side was not tumbling down.
    “Phew,” said James.
    They carried on walking for a few more miles. The children were getting really tired now when suddenly they saw something that really shocked them.

    ,Will Hogan · 17th February 2017 at 10:55 am

    There were thousands of roaring, snarling seabears. The children were frozen with fear. Eventually after what felt like hours, the king of the seabears stepped forward. He was huge probably about ten feet tall with beautiful golden thick fur. His paws were fluffy and thick with shiny ,golden claws to match his crown. The King of the seabears smiled and welcomed the children when he saw Albert.

    Joshua Dickenson · 17th February 2017 at 11:05 am

    “Welcome chosen one, we have waiting for you for centuries, Prince Albert of the Seabears.”

    The children felt shocked but Albert looked very serious, he now knew why they had all been on this adventure. It was to reunite all the seabears of the world.

    Jayden Fielding · 17th February 2017 at 12:04 pm

    The seabears took the children to a magical cave. There were elaborate paintings of Albert showing the seabears how to find all their relatives around the world. The seabears were very happy and grateful to Albert and the other children.

    Rhys Carroll · 17th February 2017 at 12:29 pm

    “What do you want from us?” asked Albert.
    “We want you to find the rest of my pack please.” answered King Klaus.
    “Ok. If that’s what you want us to do, we’ll do it.”
    “Oh thank you! Oh thank you very much!” King Klaus happily replied.
    Off they went, out to find King Klaus’s pack. It took them hours and hours, days and days.
    “How much more to go Albert?” whimpered Timmy.
    “Not long now little brother.” answered Albert.
    As they turned, they saw more seabears than before.
    “OMG!” exclaimed James.
    “There must be millions and millions of them!” shouted Mary.
    “NO! There’s billions and billions!” corrected Timmy as there was a lot.
