Which Do You Prefer? Christmas or Easter?

Why Christmas is Better than Easter

Dear Easter Bunny,

Thank you for bringing us gifts again this year, but I think it’s time to let you know that Easter is getting way out of style, particularly compared to Christmas.

Here are three reasons why I believe this:

The first reason why I believe this is because you just deliver chocolate! Isn’t that soooo lame? Santa’s presents last all year, but chocolate, it’s gone by the next day or two!

The second reason why I believe this is because I get to sit on Santa’s fluffy red suit and ask for what I want. At Easter though, I can only see your coloured footprints, and only get to ask for chocolates.

The third and final reason why I believe this is because Santa is smashing you by flying in a sleigh with magic reindeer. You though just hop around wasting energy! No wonder no-one gives you food or drinks, but we do for Santa.

So after reading all of this evidence, I hope that I have been able to persuade you to try a little harder next Easter! You should be ashamed of yourself!

Best regards,

Alicia Engler

Why Easter is better than Christmas

Dear Santa Claus,

Thank you for bringing us gifts again this year, but I think it’s time to let you know that Christmas is losing its wow factor, while Easter has become a festival of fun and delight!

The first reason why I believe this is because some scientists say that 50% of the chocolate that you get at Easter is good for you and makes you happy, especially diabetics. Whereas Christmas makes some people unhappy because they don’t get the presents they wanted, and that creates negative energy.

The second reason why I believe this is because Easter Eggs are harder to find, which is more fun than just finding presents under a tree at Christmas with a ribbon on them. This means that it is better for your fitness and your problem-solving skills!

The third and final reason why I believe this is because whoever thought that letting a big man in a bright red suit creep through your house in the middle of the night is crazy! At any time of the year other than Christmas you would call the police! At least the Easter Bunny is dignified enough not to invade the privacy of your home when he turns up!

So after reading all of this evidence, I hope that I have been able to persuade you to be more like the bunny, and make your presents sparkle!

Best regards,

Sophie Knight

THE FORBIDDEN SWAMP

Chapter One: The Attack
I ran as fast as I could as I made a skid-stop at the end of the cliff.
“Should I, should I not?” I asked myself.
I was running from a beast that had curly horns, large claws and 6 legs. The orb I was holding started to glow a pale, turquoise green colour. It flew out of my hands. The colour travelled from the side of it. It transformed into a bubble that surrounded me. I jumped off the edge of the cliff but when I hit the grasslands I didn’t feel a thing. The beast leaped onto me. The bubble faded.
“That hurt,” I exclaimed as I reached out for the orb. The monster jumped off of me. I started to make my way home. I tucked the orb into my bag. As I made my way home I logged onto the computer.

This is the ultimate weapon. The guardian is called SARPHLIX. It is said that this can transform into whatever you think of.

“Strange” I Said.

Chapter Two: The Find

         I charged out the back of the house. I thought of a missile launcher. It appeared. I thought of a sword. It appeared. I dashed off to the forest. I found out where the monster was.

“Game on!” I screeched. I charged at the sarphlix. It came out of another puddle. “So that’s how you want to play. My suggestion is that I kill you.”

I went to the puddle that was on the left of the monster. It appeared at that puddle. I stabbed at its heart. It survived!

I entered a corner. I was trapped!

Chapter Three: Elemental

I had to think fast. I thought of a shield. It appeared. I held it in front of me. The beast hit the shield. I thought of a sword. It appeared. I stabbed at its armpits. It died.

“That is a punishment,” I sighed.

I made my way back home, again.

Some Silly Stories from Prep /1 /2

One day there was a chook. The chook read a book. The book bit the chook and the chook grabbed a hook and whacked the book. “What a naughty book you are,” said the chook.

Once there was a King. He swung and swung on the swing and then he fell off. He stepped on a bee and he said “It stings!” But then the bee did start to sing. The King looked up at the bee’s wings. It had colourful wings. The King said to the bee “Can you stop singing?”

Once upon a time there was a dark brown taco. He was the ugliest brown taco ever. His name was MARK. He went to the ocean and near the park he met a shark. Image result for clipart taco
The shark said “ Bark!! EHHHHHHHHUM!!! Sorry I barked I’m part dog. It is getting dark, do you want to crash at my place?”
“Yes I will.” said the taco.
“THANKS! I haven’t had any visitors lately.”
When they got to the shark’s house, the shark ate the taco. That was the end of the taco!
