Bored, uninterested and tired as her mom rambled on about not opening the door to strangers and not leaving the house while she was at work; Danny’s eyes were suddenly drawn to a shadow in the corner of her living room.
Puzzled and intrigued, she checked it out. In the corner of the room she found a treasure map. “X marks the spot! ” she grinned.
She left the house and set off to find the hidden treasure.
Although, her mother told her not to leave the house she knew she’d get back in time… Or at least she thought.
“Dead meat” she said as she looked at her watch!
Finally, the day of the first match.” Yep, we’ve come a long way,” said Simon with a grin. But, now it was time to go for the win.
The referee threw the ball in the center and before we knew it the match had started. The Raging Rovers managed to get the ball first. Their leader, who is called Alfred, had the ball and swiftly ran to the goal. Luckily,our goalie was paying attention and managed to block the ball and blasted it into the crowed. Running rapidly, Alfred ran to the center and blasted it Â in the goalies stomach. Alfred got sent off for that because he initially aimed for the head, but hit his stomach.
The substitute, called Jimmy, ran straight to the free kick trying to block the ball. He headered it into our goal though. Our goalie was caught off guard. 1-0 to the Raging Rovers. Again and again… 2-0.
Â Â Â Half time!
By half time the Raging Rovers were winning by 5-0!!!! We knew we had to turn this around. We had a group meeting where we discussed a strategy. Once everyone was informed about the plan, they shouted GO TEAM!! We started to act as if we had never had the talk, but as soon as Jimmy got the ball we all surrounded him. Unfortunately, Jimmy never learned how to do a kick-up and eventually passed it to me. I got the ball and started to rapidly run to the goal. It was an open goal and I could shoot and score. But, my teammate was standing right next to me. I could shoot and get all of the glory or I could pass.
In the end I decided to pass. My teammate shot and scored. We knew we could win now our strategy was in play. Finally 5-5 my team and I knew we cold win the match I shot and scored. We were through to the next round.
” It’s all over, the bad guys are beaten, and it’s finally my day off, ” I said with a smile on my face. Tired, exhausted, zonked, as I walked out of the newly refurbished football stadium or used to be. Suddenly, rapidly running straight at me was Alex- who is my best friend- launched me up into the air and i smashed my head into the cold, concrete floor. He had just informed me that the EA were starting a new world football tournament and our team have been nominated to compete there. Amazed, excited, ready, I knew that my team and I could do it. Rapidly running, to the clubhouse I could feel how excited they’d be when I told them the news.
As I arrived at the clubhouse, late as usual for the daily meeting I kicked the oak wood door open. Everyone seemed to be down. What’s the matter I said as I grabbed a cola from the fridge and took a seat on the sofa dyed brown. They said that all of our parents had disappeared.As I told the news the hearts lifted because we had a chance to save them. But the frustration we all felt was unmeasurable.
Our team had been told to meet at the stadium tomorrow for our first football match.
Running rapidly, I was bewildered,for I’d run into the forest forgetting to retrace my steps as I got deeper and deeper into the forest. Suddenly, I came across a rotting, old couch which seemed like the only way of me surviving the night. As I walked towards the rotten sofa, I started to fell sick and before I could even touch its silky pillows, I passed out because of the smell that was like having to smell stinky cheese and onion all day.
Two months later,
As I awoke from my deep slumber, I noticed that I couldn’t even see.
Banging intensively, Sarah- my mother- nearly broke my wooden door down trying to wake me up for the flight to Miami. Cold, tired, zonked, as I got out of bed rapidly running to the bathroom. Despite the sub-zero rain, we still ran to the car, whichwould take us to the airport. Amazingly, we made it through the gates and on to the plane. As I rummaged my backpack for an angel cake. I noticed the problem. Then when I looked out the plane window I noticed it again for a second time. One of the planes engines had caught fire…
When the light was so bright; when the darkness has been beaten; when the you are winter breeze wraps around you, then you know it’s time for school. As mum pulled my deep Crimson blankets off me I remembered today was Friday. Finally, I got to school and strolled to assembly. My headteacher -Mr Curry- mentioned who the prefects Â would be. As he announced the names I was shocked that all my friends got one. Amazed, astounded, happy, as they came back I felt amazing. Anxiously, he called the head boy and girl names and was shocked I got head boy.
In Amrit Sanskar, that’s what Sikhs call baptism, just like us its a sacrament for them. There religion started 500 years ago in Punjab. Sikhs follow 10 guru’s called: Guru Nanak, Guru Angad, Guru Amar Das, Guru Ram Das, Guru Arjan and 5 more. There holy book is called the Granth Sahib which is written in Gurumerki invented by Guru Angad. In Amrit Sanskar, men took the name Singh which ment lion, and girls took the name Kaur ( which means princess) and other symbols called the 5 ks. To show that they were equal that they drank Amrit from the same bowl which they still do today. Each Sikh usually recives this in their late teens.
The five ks are kava which means link or bond, a steel bracelet which stands for an unbreakable link with the Grants Sahib. It is also a symbols of physical, mental strength. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Khanga is a comb which cleanses them of their sins. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Mesh is their hair. Sikhs treat it as a gift from God and never cut it not even for a photo. Sikhs think that not cutting their hair God’s will. Â Â Â Â Â
Kaccha is a giant pair of shorts. It is an example of saving someone. Kirpan is a sword. It to defend the weak and fight for what is right. It is worn as a religious symbols and never as a weapon.
Instead of Sikhs having Godparents they have a guru that watches over them and are baptised infront of special people. Sikhs promise to sacrifice them selves to the Lord. Dedicating their body and mind, I have crossed over the terrifying world ocean and shaken off the fear of death. ( Guru Arjan, Chant, page 576)
In Amrit Sanskar they get given a sword just like how we get given a candle. They also have a holy book called Granth Sahib just like our bible. They have a God just like us. In their Baptism they get given gifts from God.
First of all, they have different name for baptism which is Amrit Sanscaer. The next is that their baptism is performed in front of Guru Goblina Singh these are very important people. Unlike us they celebrate in a Gurdwara but we celebrate in a church. In the other religions baptism the baby is forced to drink sugar water. the recipie for this is sugar and water. In our faith we have the priest pour holy water on our heads. An intresting thing is that they don’t have godparents because they are Baptised in front of very important and famous people.
They finally made it to London. As soon as they got there, they went to the police station. 10 minuets later, they penetrated the laser beams and told the police what had happened. Soon after the next day’s newspaper had their names written all over it literally ther names covered the newspaper:ads, articles, even housing departments.
They took over the world by storm. At dawn the police came and greeted them with kind regards.
Dave was preparing for sports day. Making sure that he could dodge all of Roger’s surprises. Dave’s mum, called Janet, knew he would Â get hurt because every year. This year he knew that he was ready for any tricks. Â In the morning, Dave rapidly ran downstairs and left. Before he knew it, Dave was at school, so was Roger. It was sports day everyone, went to the park. The final race was the sprinting, Roger had put slimy, slithery toy snakes, that were covered in jelly down Daves pants. Despite the fact he hated snakes he still won and beat Roger.
Christmas came. It was 1970 and back then children would ask for food more than anything else. Now children ask for presents and electronics. This is a story about myself in 2178.
It was three days, before the Nativity. I was the Roman soldier,but a very anxious one. I always made mistakes but took in the feedback and made myself better. The people sung carols, for Christmas time was near. Christ himself was born. Just like Christ I was born on Christmas. Which means I only get one present from each person because my birthday presents are my Christmas presents. Anyway, after a long day of practice I finally nailed it. I was confident on my lines and knew everything wasÂ going to be all right. But it wasn’t because all my friends didn’t like me because I got the part they all wanted. But, I plowed through the pain not daring to let it go.
The night of the nativity came and everyone was there. As their intimidating eyes stared at me I started to get frightened. It was my part and I spluttered the words out, and honestly sounded like a pig. The lead part was Francis, who hogged the stage to himself, and he was terrible. He interrupted other people’s part and everyone gossiped about him after the show. His mom pretended she was somebody else’s motherÂ and started joining in with the gossip.
After the performance, I went home as usual and was shocked to find a turkey roasting in the oven, my grandparents sitting at the table and getting a round of applause as I walked around the room with a startled look on my face. I had completely forgot that today was my birthday. Instead of getting one present I got two. What was the occasion I thought to myself. As I looked at everyone I saw a loving look in all their eyes. Because today I remembered all my lines and didn’t use the script.
Meanwhile, at Francis house he usually got five presents from each person, but today he only got one from the whole family. He had a disgusted look on his face and screamed. The family rapidly ran out of the room because in his stocking was coal. For in my stocking was a note which said:
You really have pushed yourself this year therefore each family member has been given some extra money to get you these.
