Jack and the beanstalk
Once upon a time there was a poor boy that lived with his mother. He only had one glorious cow left, that would refuse to be milked any more. So he went down to town and met a mysterious man with a hoodie. The strange man said, “Child, I only have these magic beans, If you want to buy them it will cost that cow you’re holding.”
“Okay, let’s trade,” said Jack. When he got home his mother was furious. She shouted “WHY DID YOU TRADE OUR LAST COW FOR THOSE STUPID BEANS???” She snatched them and threw them out the window. Jack went to sleep very sadly.
The next day Jack was amazed at the sight. Outside there was a giant beanstalk waiting to be climbed. Jack was suspicious what was up there. He started climbing the beanstalk for a hour. When he reached the top he was amazed at the sight. There was a giant castle. He went inside and saw a BUG (big unfriendly giant). He saw him counting gold one by one his face fell down meter by meter. He then dropped his face on the table, he was asleep.
Jack sneaked along the floor and climbed up the table’s leg. He luckily brought a bag. He took all the gold and ran away. He climbed down the beanstalk and returned to his mother. ”MUMMY MUMMY MUMMY I STOLE GOLD FROM A GIANT,” shouted Jack a little louder then he should have.
His mother was happy but angry, “Good good, now just promise that you don’t steal anything else from him, promise,” She said.
“Okay,” replied Jack. Jack was now suspicious of what else the BUG had for him to steal.
He then, the next day, climbed back up the beanstalk and saw the castle again. He saw a golden hen that started pooping out golden eggs. The giant was amused he got more and more tired as he blinked and suddenly fell asleep. Jack stole the hen and tip toed away. He showed his mother and
once again was mad and furious, but happy together at the same time. “DON”T DO THAT AGAIN,”shouted Jack’s mum, ”IT'S DANGEROUS. But it is kind of good that we’re rich now. Just promise that you don’t go back up.”
”Okay” Jack replied. He went to sleep curious like before. He repeated the process again in the morning and saw a golden harp. Once again the giant fell asleep. Jack took the harp, but he made a sound, it woke up the giant. The giant took his hand and swished it at the boy. ”AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH,” Jack screamed.
The giant had now had grip of him. Jack battled his way out, but there was no escape, the giant had just popped him in his mouth. Jack did not live happily ever after. The End
This week we rewrote fairy tales with a twist. I changed mine by saying that the giant caught Jack and ate him.

Where Am I????????????
As soon as you walk outside your face freezes from the cold. In your car you can see beautiful landscapes. Every last bit of water turns into solid ice over the silent night. I hear and feel a strong breeze hit my delicate skin. The place starts with a “Q”. We’re heading out bungy jumping and have a ride on the gondola.
Where am I??? I have written a piece of writing. Can you guess where I am? Comment below.

The smell of blood and food hurts my stomach. I can hear people loudly screaming in pain. Their voice has no words coming out, but just liquid tears pouring out of their closed eyes. You can see flickering lights. I can feel two hands on my shoulders, wearing gloves, covered in blood. Blood runs out beneath the door, with a loud “HELP!!!”.I feel like I was in a coma for years.
I can feel a cold stained blanket on me. There is a deep cut on my forehead. There is a black box beside me, it contains, squishy meat, rotten eggs, rotten milk, and coke with a tooth inside. The books has paper that is decaying.
This week Ms Catherine taught us how to describe a place using the five senses.
