Chestnuts Engagement Session

Brooke

Weeee, I was falling and falling. I hit the water with a SPLASH. Then I realised a shark was following me. I swam towards the island of Chestnuts Primary School. I looked around. There was a yellow penguin, standing before me. Then I realised there were lots of them. I lied down, before I realised there was a golden lion above me. It looked hungry.

I leaped up and ran towards the forest. In the forest, there were rainbow coloured plants and enormous trees. I hid behind a tree and the golden lion passed me. Just then I realised, up ahead there was a red X on the floor. I ran towards it and started digging. There was a small brown box. I took it out and opened it. Inside there was medicine, food and water. I saw a mountain, with snow on the top, up ahead.

I rapidly fell in the salty ocean. Before I was falling I knew I wouldn’t be able to swim, I had nothing with me. The salty water assaulted my eyes and I couldn’t swim ...

I woke up with red octopuses. Where are they from? I was in a tropical water with a lot of colourful fish. I screamed for help, the octopuses looked confused back at me. They were taking me to a pebbled island with treasure. It was titled “danger, beware”. I didn’t really care about the title I just wanted the treasure, but I knew there was something strange about the island because there were crazy green mermaids screaming randomly.

When I went on the island and took the treasure, the mermaids ran away. While I took the treasure a vast beast with over 80 eyes came closer to me while I moved back. A long rope came from the sky even though I didn’t know where the…

When I flung off the boat, I knew I shouldn't have looked for this stupid treasure. I felt… scared… scared because I had nobody by my side. All of a sudden I felt a massive amount of pain. The island was so close but I couldn't bear trying to move. I swam. I swam for my life. And finally reached the island. The sand was soft, as soft as a cat’s fur. There were animals staring at me. Mystical ones. A rhino was staring at me like a stalker. It looked like a disgusting hog. Its horns as sharp as a shark’s teeth. It growled. Growled as hard as it could. Its eyes went red and a shadow was behind me… It was a pig with 5 noses! It was chasing me.

I ran into a forest. It was like a maze. I ran through the hedges.  And saw something on the floor. It said on it ‘the animal controller’. I turned around and used it on the mighty rhino. I jumped on top of it and it bashed the pig with its horns. It fell with a mighty roar. We climbed up a mountain that was covered with snow. As I reached the top I saw something in the distance. A glimpse of a ship. surely it wasn't mine. It faded away and I saw something or someone coming towards me. something familiar something… bleeding…

Geazmina

When I flew into the freezing cold water I felt like I was never going to see anyone

ever again. I am in the middle of the water. I can see the island from where I’m standing at the moment. There is no one around here, I am very scared. All I was thinking about was that I was going to freeze into an ice bloc. Oh, there I see a pink unicorn swimming towards me, maybe she can help me get out of here.

“Hey you can you please help me get out of here?”

“Yeah sure, I will help you get out”…

Hermon

Splash, I hit the water like I got shot by a sniper rifle. It is the end, no one’s here to help me I’m all alone. I can feel the fish migrating slowly around my leg but it’s not a good feeling. I can also feel my departed skin peeling off slowly and slowly but luckily I have a kind and trustworthy friend to pull me onto the mysterious tropical forest/island, but I can see something floating in the distance.

I can hear something lurking around in the bushes getting ready to pounce on its prey but I saw a head peek out it was green with sharp teeth. We knew we had to move forward in a straight line, it was definitely the end. Someone needs to help me as I could see a slow moving figure in the mud squish, squish...

Jasmine

As I was flung off the boat I spontaneously splashed into the sea which made the ocean echo. From shore it looked like a 20 minute journey to swim so I thought perhaps I would do front crawl. Meanwhile I could feel some sort of sea creature under me. What could it be? A shark or whale or a really, really big fish? Clueless of what it could be and too scared to look at what it is I swim as fast as I think I ever have to shore. But then I realised it was my belt coming undone. Silly me. Wait, what could I see? I rubbed my eyes to make sure of what I was seeing was true. I saw a purple giraffe, a green lion, a golden tiger and miniature blue elephants.

Now I see my battered crew all approaching the island and my captain in the corner munching on an orange apple (which would be disgusting). We were all in shock that all of us are alive and our captain tells us how sad and lonely she was. No one wanted to listen, they wanted to tell everyone their story about their way to the destination - Chestnuts Primary School.

 

Jason

The boat smashed into a rock. I flew in air then suddenly I fell onto the island. I saw a strange chicken, but not any normal chicken, it was a chicken with two glowing eyes. The chicken shouted at me. I thought I was dreaming until I saw some gold. The gold was on top of a mountain. But then I saw a dot on the mountain. It moved and moved. It went near the gold. I thought it was one of my friends but when I got there it was just a big fat chicken. It ate all the gold.

I got so angry I tried to kick the chicken but it suddenly turned into a big pirate eating chicken. It ate me. A couple of hours later I got out but in the worst way… THE CHICKEN POOPED ME OUT. It was the worst day of my life. The chicken chased me to the boat. But it could not swim.

“I MADE IT” I said.

Javante

It all started when the boat flung up into the air. I was descending, thinking about my life about to end and my swimming lessons. As soon as I dropped on the lake I fell in the sea. I saw a forest from afar. I went closer and closer until I touched the sand. It felt very weird, I thought, but I never minded it.

I went into the forest and I saw small creatures around me looking at me in a mysterious way, and a bird said “kakaka” and that’s when gorillas and monkeys started chasing me with big scary claws!! I started to run for my life. They were right behind me, if I stopped my life was gonna be so over. I saw a shortcut. I went through it and it was pitch black. I couldn’t see a thing and suddenly I was back into the sea (I knew gorillas couldn’t swim).  I saw a boat and all my friends again they gave me rope to climb up. I held onto it and there were 3 sharks behind me. Unfortunately, Captain had the scissors and she was so clumsy she cut off the rope. She tried to jump and save me but she dropped into the shark’s mouth, then I dropped and I knew I was dead....to be continued.

 

Khairee

I didn’t know what hit me when fell off the ship. I felt terrified that I was not with my crew. I’d felt the fish on my leg smoothly wiggling past me like cars when the move fast. A bit of the ship hit me and knocked me out cold. The golden, silky lion saved me (my pet). I was pulled so hard because of his razor sharp teeth. I knew if I closed my eyes I would die (that’s what I thought). I looked ahead and I saw the tropical trees which had bananas fall as a giant threw them. I saw the captain crying like the thunder earlier that day. I ran to get food after the lion dropped me. A banana hit my head really hard as a giraffe threw it down like a hurricane. I heard a wolf howl but could this be the end for me...

Leonie

When I was floating in the air my whole life flashed in front of my eyes. I knew that everything was going to change. The water touched my face. It was cold but hot. I was not sure because I was too scared to think. Luckily, I was not too far away from the beach so I just walked onto the beach. A purple giraffe came up to me and it put me on its back and we went on with the trip to find the treasure. We saw a jungle.

The giraffe told me "MY NAME IS SHAY”. He shouted because he did not think I could hear him but I could. “My name is Leonie and you did not need to shout". All the animals there were bright colours and really scary and REALLY tall. We left the jungle and saw a massive mountain with a big BIG BIG ... To be continued…

 

Mariam

Blop, I fell down but did not drown because I was light as a feather. I fell asleep because I could not stand the freezing cold, salty sea. As soon as I woke up I could not see because there was a giant squid on my face. I quickly shook my head. Blop, the squid flew across the greenly, bluey and white sea. I ran as quick as lighting up the highest mountain to search for a boat but I see a house near Rocky Island......................

Melisa

As I am in the blue sky in the clouds and as the clouds blur it all for me and as I am getting near the dark blue ocean, I finally recognise that I am dropping and my heavy belt drops me right into the deep dark blue ocean. As I am trying to break my belt off a great ginormous rose gold elephant comes towards me and it gets nearer and nearer. It arrives but it starts giving me signs to my friends as he is trying to show me he can fly...

Sukhdev

As I was flying through the air I regret going on this ship to find the treasure and I didn’t listen to my pirate swimming lessons so I couldn’t swim and got washed up on a mysterious island which was bigger than Chestnuts Island. I woke up and saw a tiger approaching me and I took my sword out but the tigers were friendly and they could fly so I asked them to fly me to the nearest mountain, so they flew me through the grey fog and when I got to the end of the fog, I saw lots more animals and gold, glowing sand with purple water.

I saw Chestnuts Island from the view the tigers sent me to so I asked them if they could send me to Chestnuts Island, but they said, “We can’t travel that far… but you could ask the 8 wolves to help you get to Chestnuts Island”. So I cannon balled down into the gold sand and asked the wolves if they could take me there and they said, “Yes, but you have to give us food”. So I gave them some meat and they took me.

When I got on Chestnuts Island I saw my crew, so I ran closer, but when I got closer it was people with bows and swords so I started to run but I tripped and they saw me and said "What are YOU doing here?" I didn’t listen and started to run but they ended up trying to run after me. There was a wall that blocked me and they held back their bows. They were about to shoot me but my friends (aka my crew friends) saved me by swinging from nowhere and hitting them on the head. They said "Give me your hand”, so I did. They took me somewhere nice but something good about the place was that it had treasure. TO BE CONTINUED
