Kate and Dad's Exciting Day Out: By Kate: Second class: Ms O' Mahoney
Once upon a time Kate and her Dad went on an exciting fishing trip. They got everything ready and they hoped that they left nothing behind. They set off. On the way they checked again to see that they had everything with them but Kate said, " Dad, Dad we forgot the most important thing of all !!" "We forgot the fishing rods !" Then Dad said, "We can't go back now, we're almost there". So when they got there they asked everyone "Do you have a spare fishing rod please ?" But no one did.
So they looked for any materials they could use. Dad found a very long stick just like a fishing rod. Kate thought it was an old fishing rod that was broken. Kate had some string with her. She was hoping to make friendship bracelets on the way home in the car. So they wrapped the string around the stick and they made a brilliant fishing rod.
Suddenly, they heard a loud voice. Someone said "There are no more fish left in the sea, we've caught them all !! Hard luck". Kate and Dad were very disappointed. They were sure there was lots more fish in the sea. "Well why don't we just try Dad", Kate said. Kate was very clever and she knew there had to be more fish so Dad agreed, " It's no harm to try". Dad got a good grip on the fishing rod, he swung it back over his shoulder and then Kate said "Release !!".
It took a long time, they waited and waited. All of a sudden Dad said, "Look, look there's something pulling on the rod !". They caught a big fat fish. Kate said, " I knew it, I knew it ! I told you there was more in the sea". Kate wanted to catch one as well. She was sure there was one more in the sea so she got a good grip on the rod, she swung it back over her shoulder and Dad said, " Release !". A few minutes later Kate shouted " Help me Dad there's something pulling on the rod!". She caught a fish ... It wasn't as big as the other one but she was just a kid !!
When they were walking back to the car Dad said, "Well done, I'm very proud of you ". Kate said, " I don't think I'll be making any friendship bracelets but it was worth the fun !".
The Fishfingers: By Emily: First class: Mr. Brady
One windy night Emma, Jack, Mam and Dad were in the sitting room. They were having their supper. "Why don't we go fishing tomorrow", asked Emma. "Good idea, Emma", said Jack. "But I have to go to on a playdate". "What about you, mam?" asked Emma. "I'm sorry dear, I have to go to work. Why don't you and your dad go and catch me the biggest fish, and we will have it for supper tomorrow night".
The next morning, Emma woke with a spring in her step and rushed downstairs to have her breakfast. Not long after, the sandwiches were packed and everything was put in the car and off they went.
When they came home that night, Emma showed her mother the fish she caught. "That is some tiddler", said mam. "I know, lets make some fishfingers". "Yum Yum" said Emma.
