Showcase: Elliott Island Homework

I was coming home from hunting at night when I heard a deafening racket coming from inside my shelter…

“What on earth is going on in there?” I said to myself.

I nervously went to investigate what the noise was.  My heart was thumping so loud I hoped that whatever was inside couldn’t hear it.

“Come on Elliott… count to ten, keep calm.” I whispered to myself.Showcase badge

“How dare you build on Doom Island!” boomed an immense man.

“How dare you go in my tent!” I said shaking inside.

“Who do you think you are talking to me like that?” he replied. “I am Banger the Great, the most powerful and strongest ruler of Doom Island in all history.”

There was a silence that seemed to go on forever. Suddenly, I had the best thought that could get me out of this mess.

“But I am the King of Zuzu Island. It is the biggest island in the world, if you don’t leave my shelter I will get my army to attack so…….. GO!” I bellowed.

“Show me some proof,” he said laughing.

I was panicking, starting to sweat with nerves…..then in a flash of inspiration it came to me.

“Take a look at this,” I said proudly while pulling out of my pocket a picture of me dressed up as King Henry in a school production.

Banger the Great looked at my picture and paused then the King of Doom Island ran like the wind into the distance.

“Phew! Hope that’s the end of him,” I thought as I sat down to eat my catch of the day.

Showcase: Adam’s Time Machine Homework

As I step out of my time machine(which looks out of place), I feel a cold rush of air brush against my skin and a strong smell of smoke. People are screaming in the distance and I can see red, orange, yellow flames dancing above the tree tops.

I decide to investigate, my curiosity overwhelming my fear. As I trudge up the steep hill, I hear more violent screams and battle cries.

As I reach the top of the hill… “VIKINGS!” I seemed to blurt out as if my life depended on it. I wanted to turn and run but I was frozen,  to scared to move. I looked back, my time machine was still there, maybe if I was quick I could… too late, they were coming.

The only thing that was running through my mind was… hide… I tried to climb a tree, I tried to find a hole anything, but no, I had to make a quick decision, Run.

I ran as fast as I could, the fact that I would be back soon was the only thing that kept me going.

When I got to the time machine I swung open the door and leaped through the open doors…

Finally safe.
