    One sunny day a handsome prince called BboBBbeeeni . He had a beautiful Dragon that had sizzling fire. He had to train it to sing in the zoo because there will be a big party.

    When he got to the party and the zoo keepers laughed at him because fire came out of his mouth instead of sounds. After that the prince never told him sing again.

    Once upon a time, there was an old castle, with sad, old people living in there. No body ever went there because they were horrible, nasty people so every one was horrible and left them alone in return.

    One sunny day Rachel and Cate were happily stumbling to school chatting about what they had done in the lovely holiday. They were thinking of a plan to make the sad, old people, nice, happy people. ”First”, Rachel called out, “We have to collect money to get there again, than, explain them why being horrible is bad. When they collected the money by selling cookies, they went up to them and said; “Being horrible is the reason why you are known as sad, old people. Don’t be horrible and be known as happy, old people”. They understood and later, they were known as happy, old people.

    In a old house there lived a nice monster. No body liked him because he was a monster. One day he was alone in the dark and suddenly a boy ran out of a hole and the monster went out to see who was there. He called out “hello” but there was no reply. He was very sad and lonely.

    Once in a far far country there was a grail could Lilly, she had brown hair like brown tree trunks and was really lovely and ceind. That is what you thought; but she was an ugly, disgusting witch, with two ugly sisters just like her! She is the most horrid person in all of the far away land. Even though she did not want to be, she tried her best to become a person with a heart of gold she wished.
    Suddenly something surprising happened to her. It was her fairy god mother. She was so surprised that she fainted. She couldn’t believe here eyes, “who are you” she sad. I’m your fairy good mother; I will help you to become a lovely grail. “Thank you weary much”, she sad.

    • Sarah

    In a happy place called London, lived a beautiful girl named Pheobe. Pheobe had blonde hair, she smelt of lavender fresh from the green ground. She came to a wonderful school called Riversdale primary school.

    Unfortunately next door to phoebe was a boy called Lochie, he thought he was so handsome but he was ugly, really, really ugly he had warts all over his face. One day he walked proudly down the street when he saw phoebe walking next to a playschool student Caleb and approached them but they ran away.

    A long time ago there was an extremely lonely and disliked boy called Marcus. He was the meanest boy in the play ground, and he was always being a big, scary, bully. He always gave children wedgies and was always cornering the little, innocent children, but soon enough everyone knew he would get a taste of his own medicine.

    And soon that day had come. A new boy named Bjorn came and told him “What goes around comes around”. Just then an older boy named Nick came down and told Marcus “shove off, little boy”. Marcus was terrified.

    He got so scared that he ran away. He ran and ran until he realised that he was just running in a circle. He got up and screamed ,”Heeeeeeeeeelp”.
    When he went home that day, he didn’t come to school again.

    One sunny day I was walking to the shop. I didn’t no it was closed because it was a sad, boring Sunday. The shop had lolly popes and three bars of chocolate.

    Then suddenly the shop exploded, like a terrifying bomb. The shop owner came running out from the back like a frightened cat. His daughter Nina was still in there!
    “NOOOOOOOOO!” shouted the shop keeper “my tougher.” She was a lovely girl and the shop keeper is very upset.

    Long time ago a man called Marcus use to live in a cottage. He had black and gold apples with 3 bananas. His entire cottage was made out crumbly chewy cookies with delicious chocolate chips.
    He had only one problem ugly smelly,
    Greedy, children would come to his wonderful cookie house, and try to eat it up in one huge bite. Marcus lived with his non-greedy mum. One day when he says his house being eaten, he threw the fruit onto the floor.

    He lived badly ever after because his house broke down, you no why.

      Some sentences didn’t make sence and you missed out some words.
      You need to add more punctuations.

      It was a good story.

    About Josh.

    One day there was a cool boy called Josh, he was loved by is family, but he hated it because he always felt embarrassed about being loved. He loved a girl named Rachel she’s a good person. She was beautiful and had thick brown hair, crystal blue eyes and cute little freckles everyone liked her but Josh loved her.

    “She is so pretty” Josh mumbled to himself, “maybe I should ask her out” he thought. But then Regina Gorge came and she pushed me over, Regina Gorge is the queen of mean.

  32. The young, scared and frightened princess Candace ran through the dark Woods as fast as she could with her black lantern. She ran and ran for as long as she could, until she tripped over on her delicate, golden, silk dress. The dress tore a little from the bottom. Suddenly some gushing water came bursting of the ground like a fountain.

    After a few minutes, she could hear the murderer chasing her again shouting out” Come out where ever you are, you know I’ll find you soon enough”.
    But just then, her charming prince, prince Phineas came sprinting from his horse and went behind the Burglar and hit him with his sword.

    The two happy couple ran away on the horse back to their palace in Far far away.

    So he kept eating until his two children came down and said “can we have some fresh turnips” they begged so the children ate and ate all the of the turnips all at once they said to there dad “can we have some more”.

      At the end you should of put a question mark.

      It is good because you used speech,you have capital letter’s,fall stop’s and it made sence.

    • Cate

      You need to of put some punctuation in some places.

      ** You included speech.
      ** You had no spelling mistakes.
      ** You used capital letters for peoples names.

    • I love the describing words in the story. There should be a capital letter at the beginning of the speech. There should also be a comma after the speech and sometimes before.

    • Kacper

      – you are missing a fullstop Rachel (btween begged and so!)
      – Rachel, your mising ANOTHER fullstop (between once they!!!)
      – your missing a question mark (at the end of last line, in secoun paragrapgh.)

    • I like the fact it was a ‘stormy night’, as it helps set the scene.
