Granny and Ben, by Noelle

Leagha:
Ben's Granny loves cabbage, scrabble and Murray Mints, and she and The Queen have a lot in common. She lives in a little cottage, plays Scrabble and makes cabbage all day. But what you don't know is she is an undercover jewel thief.

Clarice:
Ben's Granny has a love of cabbage. She eats it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and for a snack. She sees her grandson every Friday night and she always plays Scrabble with him. When Granny and Ben meet the The Queen they share Murray Mints of course. Granny and The Queen get along really well.

Sophie:
Ben's Granny had white hair, thick glasses, a hearing aid and false teeth. Granny wore a mauve cardigan, a floral print dress, tan tights and burgundy slippers. She kept a used tissue up her sleeve and she had a packet of Murray Mints close by. She also smelled of Cabbage. Ben's granny loved everything cabbage, from soup to pie. Granny lived in Grey Close in a small bungalow. She had Ben over every Friday, and they always played Scrabble. Granny could suck on a Murray Mint for a day. When Ben found out his Granny loved Gangstas and that she was a gangsta, he planned to steal the crown jewels with her. But they got caught by The Queen.

Write a story about a gangsta

Noelle:
We had a gangsta living in our estate. He stole and sold everything. The guards were trying to catch him but could not. He had a big fast car and smoked a big cigar. One time he stole my bike but my dad got it back. We are hoping that he makes enough money to go on a very long holiday and never come back.

Sophie:
One day an Irishman called Jim Morairty went into the Tower of London in broad daylight acting as a tourist. He had earphones in and was listening to The BeeGees Stayin' Alive. He clicked an unusual app and the alarms started blaring. Everyone went into panic and rushed from the room screaming. When Jim was the only one left a security guard came in and recommended that Jim left. Jim then pepper sprayed him in the face. He got a big marker and wrote 'Get Sherlock' with a smiley face in the O in block writing on the glass. Then he smashed the glass with the fire hydrant and sat up on the throne and put on the crown jewels. The Scotland Yard came and stopped Jim in his tracks.... for now.

Clarice:
There once was a gangsta who was planning to steal the Mona Lisa on Christmas Eve. But when he saw the security cameras, he just took a photograph and printed it and put it in the exact same frame and sold it for 99.9 billion euros.

Think of the most ridiculous lie for why you might not have done your homework

Noelle:
I was fighting with my brother James, so he emptied the remains of his dinner into my sack and my homework was ruined.

Sophie:
I didn't do my homework because my dog ate it and then my lizard ate it, then my tiger ate it, and then my dinosaur ate it.

Ciarán:
I left it on the table and my cat ate it.

Clarice:
I don't have my homework done because my house got hit by a lightning bolt and caught up in flames and everything I own was burnt also, so now I'm living with my best friend and that's why I don't have my homework done.

Leagha:
I didn't do my homework because me and my sister were doing our homework and the homework fell out the window and blew away.
