100 word writing challenge

Room 4 watched an interesting you tube clip then had to write a short passage of 100 words We had some awesome examples. Check out the clip and a few examples of writing below. 

One day I came out of my hole to visit the gym. I heaved to my trap. I thought “right, I have the courage and strength to of this”. I stood on my trap and waited. A millisecond later, something crunched me down. I laid down in a comfortable position. I waited to gather up all my strength I had. Suddenly I started lifting up the crossbar of the trap. I pushed it up and pulled it down, up, down, up down. That was to train my biceps and triceps. Then I started doing sit ups with the crossbar.

Once upon a time there was a little mouse. He smelt cheese so he walked out of his little cubby hole and he started nibbling on a piece of cheese, that was on a mouse trap. Then the mouse started feeling funny and woke up right on top of the mouse trap, WHAM! For a few moments there was silence then the mouse started doing push-ups! That cheese must of had some type of super power serum or something, because the mouse started doing the core then broke out of the mouse trap. He became the super mouse. He was so famous.

I just woke up from a long sleep, dreaming that I was the king of cheese land. Suddenly I woke up smelling the delicious scent of my favourite food. Cheese! I combed my fur and got ready for a delicious breakfast, out I went. Sniff, tip toe. I didn’t want to be caught by the old mean cat called ginger. If I was the owner of the big meanie I would call it mouldy ginger biscuits! (That's how he looks!). Chew, swallow. Snap! Luckily I didn’t do my morning workout and now was just the right time!

As the mouse crept out of it suddenly turned to face a piece of…CHEESE. The mouse thought dinner was served. But there was an object under the cheese. The mouse touch a couple of bites then inspected the object when… SNAP it was a trap. All was silent till then the mouse counted and the mouse pushed the trap bar up, down, up and down pumping the blood throw his veins. A week later the housekeeper came home from work and was surprised to see the food cupboard opened and all of the cheese gone and saw a mouse!!!

Once upon a time there was a house and that had lots of mice. One day a mouse wanted to find food outside the house because he was too hungry and he was excited as well. He could smell the yummy cheese. He went near the mouse trap and he had a bite of the cheese and SNAP.!!!!! He couldn't breathe but suddenly one two three the surprising thing happened, he started to do push ups. He has super power again, push, push and push push push. He got the energy to do push ups again, the exciting mouse was doing fitness and that fitness was push ups.

The mouse crept along the squeaky floorboard. He could smell nolans extra strong cheese.he creeps further along the floorboard.he finally finds the cheese he nibbles it slowly savouring every bite of  the cheese. mm how tasty. He crawls in every direction so he can nibble all of the cheese until ....snap he slowly breathes less air comes through his body he is slowly dying suddenly he feels adrenaline running through his veins he pumps the the bar up and down,
Nolans extra strong cheese

This Wednesday, March 6th is our New Zealand National Walk/Wheel day. It would be awesome to have heaps of Ilam children taking part in this. Even if you drop your children off just 10 minutes away from school that would be a great effort to support our school and our country in this initiative. We are also having this as a mufti day and a gold coin donation opportunity for our sponsored child, Diakari. Thank you, Ilam School Council.
