Homework Week 7 – 100 Word Challenge

This weeks homework is to complete a 100 word challenge. You will be given a prompt and you are to write a story or paragraph that is only 100 words long. We have been practicing these in our classroom. Here is your prompt for this week.

Here is an example of some students pieces of writing.


Batul held the treasure map in her trembling hands, smiling to herself. The chest was right in front of her, ready to be opened. She opened the chest slowly and carefully. Inside was a big, opaque container. Batul knew this was her only chance, so as she lifted the lid on top, a tingling sensation flew over her body. There was something incredible inside. It was a diamond ring, sparkling in the sunlight. Batul put it on gleefully thinking how lucky she was. However, what she didn’t know was the magic that was trapped inside…

Today I woke up late and went downstairs for breakfast and found some leftover pizza from yesterday and then stopped or it could be the left over pizza from last year but I didn’t know if it was the pizza or the left over pizza from last year. After a while I decided to put in the microwave and so as she lifted the lid and she was relieved it was the pizza. But wasn’t the only thing she had to worry about. Just after she finished the pizza she suddenly stopped and realised that where her parents are…….

    I was bored and had nothing to do, it was raining I couldn’t go to Aaliyah my best friend’s house.
    Mum said I should explore around the house. I said to her there is nowhere in this house I have not explored.
    I took mums idea and went exploring. I went up the stairs past my room past my sister’s room turned left then turned right and I found a door I had never seen before.
    I was scared what was in there? I opened the door very slowly and found boxes shelfs table’s books and toys. I walked around and found this box that said: Anastasia 3 years. …So as she lifted the lid… she found her old bear Tedled, her stuffed elephant Turps and all the toys she loved SO MUCH……..

    “Sally can you take out the rubbish please,” yelled her mum from the kitchen. “Okay mum I will do it but James is doing it next time,” said Sally. She ran into the kitchen, grabbed the rubbish bag and ran outside closing the laundry door behind her. She went out to the rubbish bins which are near the mail box and so as she lifted the lid to the bin she saw spiders crawling out of the bin. There were all types of spiders including huntsman’s, red backs, black widows and wolf spiders. They crawled everywhere around her and bit her arm. Then her dad came home and took her to the hospital.

    I am very sorry mrs Joyce miss browns blog wasn’t working ill put it on my blog as soon as I get out of piano. and please delete this after

    smash clam boom the sound of something was coming out from our roof we went up to investigate but there was nothing there apart from a partly burnt photo that looked like me at this time I didn’t know what to think I was to scared to even move. mum and dad didn’t hear it and nether did my sister meg who was snoring by this time I quickly sprinted towards the door and just before I shut the door I realised the window was open but when I walked in to see what was there, there was no window. I was too scared to go and close it and just went straight to bed I couldn’t sleep the hole night due to noises keeping me awake. in the morning when I got up I went upstairs to see if the unknown thing was there to show this time mum asked what I was doing up so early and looking in the addeck so I showed her the photo and told her what had happened, and surprisingly she actually believed me. and in the afternoon when I got home I had voices in my head saying go to the addeck over and over so I went up stairs hoping this would be the last time and as I reached the addeck I had second thoughts to wether I should do it but I did because I wanted this over and done with so I reached for the door opend it and inside was an evil spirit that had been haunting me and it was the one that was at my hospital when my sister meg was borne and who separated me and my family from our very close friends. so I ran down stairs grabbed mum dad meg and told them to get out of the house this minuet and sure enough the spirit was coming down stairs but couldn’t leave the house so we could get away. and that was the story of my abandon home. “wow that was great did that really happen” I haven’t moved before for any reason but I think that there are way to many houses abandon per year I’m going to find out the reason behind all abandon buildings and see if I can help. there is one mysterious house I walk past every day that would be great to find the history behind. so off Annas friend went going to find the history behind her first house and as soon as she finished there was a sale offer and the house was as good as new and from then on anna the girl who had a bad history with her house her best friend was the person to save abandon houses.

    the end…

    I was asleep and splash boom a wave very large went all over the deck. I went back to sleep but I woke up on a strange island it was mysterious. I heard the bushes shake and I made a hut to keep me safe. Through the night I was very hungry indeed. I climbed a tree and picked some bananas. Mm I said but some peaceful waves driffed me to sleep. When I woke up I opened my eyes and said to myself I’m in my room it must of been a strange mysterious dream. I heard mum calling, “Elizabeth wake up time for breakfast”. I came rushing down the stairs and said to mum ” that was the strangest dream”. I smelled something delishus, “What is for breakfast mum?” As she lifed the lid of the frying pan Elizabeth saw pancakes. “My faverite thanks mum”.

So after I went to open the box I did than something really humungus scary looking magical monster that made me scream really loud and than I could smell something burning in my mums house and than I walked into the kitchen and than the thing that cought my eye was a fire and the whole stove blew up into flames and than I got the blame for it from my mum.

    I was riding a roller coaster. The ride is finished, finally. I catch my stomach as the bar holding me releases me. “Few.” The cage opened I get out. I’m still dizzy I feel like I’m gonna hurl. My mum has fairy floss in a plastic container as I open the lid a bunch of bubbly chemicals spurt and spit at me, April fools my sisters say jumping from behind the pram. I go on another ride. I spin when I get off. This time my mum brings me fairy floss on a stick. Sorry about before darling. Enjoy.

    Joshes mum Arived quick.Then be quick she’s in a hurry. I smelt chocolate when I walked out of the door. I rushed down the driveway and to the car, I asked if Joshes mum had chocolates. Joshes mum said here, have some if you want. I saw the chocolate that wasn’t in the box. I heard Joshes mums teeth crack through the chocolate, as soon as I reached the door of the house I opened it and rushed to my room. I saw the box, grabbed the keys and unlocked the box,so as I lifted the lid nothing was there. Before school everything was in the box.
