Dark and scary wood
Being chased by other character
Once upon a time Jack was climbing up a beanstalk. He climbed and climbed until he was up in the clouds looking all over the place. He walked forwards until everything started to look like a dark scary wood. He said to himself, “Where am I?” in a scared voice. He saw a huge house and went inside. “Anybody home?” said Jack. Jack walked closer and closer until he saw a big bed with a giant sleeping on it. The giant started to sleepwalk and Jack was frightened to death.
“Whoo” said Jack.” “Some belly you have big guy”! Jack started to laugh. The giant started chasing Jack around the dark scary woods while he was asleep. “Slow down big belly guy.” “I just came to visit your house and this is how you treat visitors and tiny people? Some friend you are.” Said Jack. “ I like my house better.”
Jack was searching for the beanstalk he climbed up but, it had disappeared. “Where is that beanstalk I climbed up?” Jack was confused. He was in the middle of nowhere.
Jack found a tall, big tree. He climbed up the tree but, the giant was too tall. The giant started to wreck everything. Jack ran back to the giants bed and lay down. The giant followed Jack and thought that Jack was his tiny teddy named Ted. Jack ran away. “There’s that beanstalk”, said Jack.
Jack climbed down the beanstalk and ran home. “Wow, what an adventure.” Said Jack.
“What are you talking about?” said Jacks little sister.
“Oh nothing, you're too little to know what I’ve been through.”
“Mum.” screamed Jacks sister.

Hockey is a sport that is play on ice, turf or on a field. To play hockey you will need a hockey stick, a hard ball and a place to play. A hockey stick is shaped like a candy cane but, much bigger. You need to wear shoes when you play this sport because if the ball hits your feet it can really hurt. You also need to have a mouth guard incase you get whacked by the stick or ball in the face. This game is played in winter and it is a team sport. There are eleven players playing each game. Why are you only aloud eleven players on each game?
Firstly, an explanation about blocking and striking . Blocking is when somebody hits the ball and you stop the ball with the flat side of the hockey stick. Striking is when you hit the ball with the candy cane shaped stick. You need to have the stick below your waist because if you swing it back you could hit somebody in the face.
Secondly, you need to keep your eye on the ball because if you don’t you could hit the ground not the ball and the other team can come and swipe it. Another reason why you should have your eye on the ball is because you could hit it but, it could go in the wrong direction.
Finally, you have to have your body behind the ball because sometimes the ball rolls up and over the hockey stick. You also need to give a little. When the ball is coming really fast you need to bring the stick back so it doesn’t snap when you hit it.
The answer to my initial question is because there are eleven positions to play a game. The two main skills are striking and blocking. Striking is when you hit the ball and blocking is when you stop the ball. You need to keep your eye on the ball because if you don’t you could hit the ground not the ball. Make sure you have your body behind the ball because sometimes the ball rolls up and over the stick.
