Baby cry 1


 It was midnight, when I heard a baby crying out of the door. I didn't know who was. At first I thought that it was a joke, but the baby was crying for long. Then the cry stoped. After a minute I saw someone moving in our garden, running to the house next to us. I was so scared, me and my brother looked out of the window again and we saw someone taking a girl out of the house. We called the police. When they arrived it was to late. The man had just put the girl in his car. After one week a dead body found out of the house next of us. It was the girl's body, the man killed her and he leaved a message on her body. It says; '' Dear Sigons, I killed your daughter, now it's your turn. Love your cousin.''

A Ghostly arm

Hello fantastic bloggers!

 Today, I'm here to tell you a GHOST STORY!

                              A GHOSTLY ARM

In April 1907 a letter appeared in theCity Press concerning the old section of the London Wall that now cowers beneath the gleaming white modernity of the Museum of London.A reader told how, on one Sunday night, he had been passing this relic when he noticed a hand and arm “stretched out from the railings to bar my passage.”He was so alarmed by this that he jumped into the road and, for a moment, turned his back to the railings. On summoning up the courage to look round, he saw a man in dark clothes, walking back to the wall. When he reached it he “seemed to walk right into it.”The bemused witness recalled how he had heard no sound of footsteps, and told how he had returned the next morning to examine the spot but could find nothing that threw any light on the mystery of what, or who, it was that he had encountered.

Earthquake in Heraklion: Jim’s writing

  In my country we don’t have volcanos, but we do have earthquakes. I live in Heraklion on the island of Crete Greece. This place is very beautiful.
  In 2015 a big earthquake happened, which destroyed lots of houses. My family was very scared, because their houses disappeared! Other people were scared too. But not everyone was so lucky. Sadly, a lot of people died and the earthquake caused great destruction. 
   After the earthquake all the people built new houses and Heraklion started being the same again after a lot of time and effort.

Samara: My story

                               Samara the 3 challenges

One day Jessie woke up and ate her breakfast. She knew that today was her school Halloween's Festival. She had a great idea! She dressed up like Samara! Samara is an evil ghost and if someone makes fun of her she will kill him in 3 challenges. Jessie thought that it was a joke, but it wasn't. After the Halloween's Festival, next morning she woke up at eleven o'clock. That was strange for Jessie, because even the weekends she used to woke up at eight o'clock, but it was a different day for her. When she ate her breakfast she went to the bathroom to clean her teeth. She opened her mouth and spiders came out of it! That was unusual, the first challenge for Samara's revenge has been started.  She used to tell all her secrets to her mum and her best friend, but now she didn't tell anything. She didn't feel OK. She had a terrible headache. Then she coughed and she felt something in her mouth! She pulled out some hair!! It was disgusting. That was the second challenge. After she had a feeling that she doesn't feel her arms. She ran to the kitchen she knew that she would die. Samara could control Jessie's body. She took a knife and put it isnide Jessie's body.  After that terrible day Jessie died and Samara took revenge on her. Can you see her? She's behind you!!!

A report

The proposal

 

The council is planning to build a new hotel in my neighbourhood in the next months . Our neighbourhood is a quiet area with a lot of traditional shops next to the beach .


Reasons to build a hotel


First of all, building a hotel is a nice idea to promote the development of a piece of land. It is going to bring more tourists , so the shops will have more profit . There are going to be a lot of new jobs and most people of the city will have work

 

Reasons not to build a hotel


Because most of the visitors will have their own car, the traffic will be heavier . Consequently, the pollution will get worse . The life of the traditional people will change , because of the foreign influences.


My opinion

(Best heading: Recommendations and Suggestions)


My opinion about the development of this area is positive because I think the advantages are more than the disadvantages.


(Meeting of the residents? Petition?)

My favourite movie

My favourite movie is ''Harry Potter''.I like this movie because it combines adventure and many emotions like joy, love, sadness, fear and excitement.

The film is about the life of a magician whose parents died from an evil wizard. After that, he is forced to stay with his uncle and aunt who were not magicians and hated it.  At the age of 11 Harry learns that he is a magician and goes to stay at Hogwarts school, there they are waiting for him and he is severely tested.

After a few years the evil wizard Voldemort is reborn and the life of the magicians but more of Harry  are threatened.The next few years are a torment for magicians.Voldemort spreads and no one can stop him. Until Harry discovers Voldemort's secret and with his friend Ron and Ermioni try to destroy him.The final battle is at Hogwarts with lots of excitement for all viewers.

I like a lot this movie and I suggest seeing it.
