Today, something terrifying happened to me! I was out fishing all alone when my hook kept getting stuck in the bushes. All of a sudden, I saw the sky turning dark and there were stars coming out rather quickly. I had never got my fishing rod stuck before so I was feeling very annoyed. Down by the cliff, I saw two, green lights shining. Suddenly, it sounded like somebody was talking to me, it sounded like HUSH, HUSH! As quick as a flash, I started to pack up. Curiously, I stared at the huge figure in front of me. It was the Iron Man! As quick as a flash, I ran off home to tell my dad.

You won't believe what happened to me today! I was fishing down near to the river near to the sea. Constantly, my fishing hook kept getting caught in the seaweed. After a while, I grew rather bored so then I got up and listened. In the distance, I could see a huge fgure, two flashing lights as bright as could be. Feeling totally overwhelemed, I legged off home as fast as I could. Completely exhanusted, I blurted out what I had just witnessed. Thankfully, dad believed me!

Today, something very weird happened. Okay, so I was just fishing in the little lake down by the sea. Suddenly, I realised it was getting a bit dark for me to fish alone. I turned around and the little lake was talking to me....HUSH...HUSh! I got rather scared but I was okay. I looked over towards the very top of the high cliff. In the blink of an eye, I saw these green lights at the top of the cliff. I started to shake and shake. Quickly, I packed up my stuff and ran as fast as I could! I told my dad all about what I had seen. Often, I joke but this was very real. Without a sound, my dad locked the doors to keep my mum, my little sister and me safe.

Oh no! Look what arrived today in our register. We were not very happy with Mr Minted and his decision to build a factory in Sankey Valley. We decided to write back to him with our reasons against the factory which included chemical population, deforestation and threats to the local habitat.

We have been writing diary accounts based on the old man in the story. Here are some of our extracts.
Today the weather looked broken and wind swept with powerful gusts! It made work even harder than is already was. At least one thing was nice...BREAKFAST. I could smell scrumptious, hot porridge cooking so I got ready as quick as a flash and ran downstairs. I grabbed my tools and set off to work.
When I saw the scrapyard it was the same as always. Rusty, untidy and old! Why can't people just clean the metal and at least tidy the place? I had to sort out all of the junk and well...try to tidy it up. It was harder than it was suppose to be because I kept falling over in the horrible winds. Could my day get any worse? I thought not but I was so wrong!
Finally I went home and had a lovely, warm, bubbly bath then I had a short nap. I went downstairs in my dressing gown and jumped on to the couch and switched on the T.V. After a while, it was time foe tea so I had a piece of stale bread and some bitter cheese. I sat alone and read my book and finally drifted off to sleep. I do hope tomorrow will be a better day. Maybe it will be hot and sunny tomorrow...just maybe?

"Can't he just love her again like he did in his childhood? She is so lonely when the man goes." Molly H-G
"On the other hand, if he doesn't chop it down and sail away with i, the tree will miss the man." Daniel Bo
"If the man never gets rid of the boat then their bond really will get closer! On the other hand, if he doesn't chop down the tree, the tree will live forever and remember the man." William G
