    Once upon a time there was a little boy who was called Liam. He was 6 years old and he lived in a castle made of gold. He was good at his times table 9’18’27’36’45’54’63’72’81’90’99’108. He knew his 9 times table! He went to the most expensive school in the world, he was really rich and he had 13 chickens 60 fish 78 cows 45 miniscule mice. It was snowing outside for 6 weeks, so he could play out in it for ever. He built a snowman and a snow angel and he had a nice dad called Mark and a nice mum called Sarah. They had a snowball fight with him and it was a very long one, it took 15 hours and after that he went sledging!
    The end.

    Once upon a time there lived a girl named Charlie. Charlie wore her hair up in bunches and with tied ribbons. She wore a nice denim jacket and a sparkling top that shone in the night. She also wore some blue navy jeans. One day it started to snow. Charlie woke up in the morning and the grass was as white as a polar bears fur. As soon as she saw this she told her that she had a day off school. She went to her dads and she went out sledging with all of her friends..
    The end
    From Charlie.

    As the keys are pressed I shiver and a tear is in the corner of my eye. The tune is so romantic it makes me want to cry. It makes me stop and think. The little tune is relaxing as something slips down my throat. His wife has no more time to live, its horrible to say bye to love ones. The music is going chime, chime, pong, ping, pong. The tune is gone and the chime. Then he is a kid playing on his horse when he was young. So now lets get under the blanket and say goodbye.

      We like the sound of going on holiday to Wales, apart from that frost. We’d love to hear more stories.
      It’s one of my favourite stories!
      Did Holy and Poly go with their parents or were they old enough to go on their own?

    Fantastic little story Chanise using all the words in the challenge. In next weeks challenge perhaps you could try to make the openings to each sentence different. Think about your connectives and ‘ly’ or ‘ing’ words.
    Keep up the good 100WC!

    A long long time ago it was very frosty. Garry and Annie parked their green caravan. One day they went swimming and their little boy Hank had armbands. They were very heavy. The next day Hank came running out of his caravan because it was snowing. They were very exited and they made a snow man. The next day it was time to go back home, then Hank went to school and went on the 100wc!

    Early in the morning, in a caravan, lived Jack Frost, Mr frost, Mrs Frost, Lucy Frost and Bill Frost. They were a happy family and lived in paradise where it had been sunny for two whole years! One day, while Mr Frost was running, it started raining. Not just heavy, but torrential! Now the rain had started the Frost family sat sadly inside the caravan and watched the green grass get all wet,soggy and muddy. The Frost family where relieved when finally, a week later the sun came out,the grass was green and the flowers started growing.

    One mad and barmy day,
    In the merry month of May,
    A man called Bill thought that the moon was ill,
    So he went to his rocket,
    Then plugged in the socket
    and the countdown began three two one.
    Bill shouted “Woohoo this is going to be fun!”
    Five hours later Bill heard a KABBOOOMMM!!
    He looked out of the window, he was on the moon
    Then he saw an alien which was bright green,
    Together they enjoyed eating ice-cream!

    Bob was a secret agent. He worked for the police.

    One day Bob volunteered to go on a mission to go into a smelly house.

    So he went. He traveled for miles until he found a rotton house.
    He went in through the gate. The gate creaked open. A bat flew out an open window.Then Bob carried on creeping to the house.Then he opened the house door and…


    Bob woke up from a dream. “I cant believe i was dreaming,” he said. “I’m going to tell mum.”

    The rusty gate creaked, and the wind blew through the trees. The moon was shining like a diamond gleaming so bright it could make you blind. I walked towards a creepy house the graves stood on both sides of the path. I came to the front door and opened it very slowly my heart was beating so fast I thought it was going to beat out of my chest. The door slammed behind me. I ran up the stairs with fright and found myself standing outside a door. I went inside the room, there was a box in the middle of the floor. I opened the box and couldn’t believe my eyes, this was what I was searching for.
