My story

At the moment I (Eleanor) have been writing a story at home, about mine and Isabella’s cloud houses’. It isn’t finished yet but as we only have pass the blog for one week I have decided to post what I have so far. I hope you enjoy it!

One time, at a small frail school, there were some year 6s’ in the library. Now, in this decayed library, it seemed to be dreaded reading time. But there were two girls who hated it the most. They thought it was too boring! Their names were Isabella and Eleanor.

Isabella had long wisps of fair hair, was average hight, had deep maroon eyes and was always giggling. Eleanor had thin, brown hair that was a few inches from her shoulders, was very tall- taller than isabella-, had crystle blue eyes and a big smile.

On this particular day, Mrs. Bright (the strictest teacher in the school) had decided to let the year 6s’ choose a book of their choice- which was not often!
‘ Yawn!’ Eleanor muttered. Isabella lightly giggled.
‘ Have YOU TWO got some thing to tell me?’ Mrs Bright bellowed with her big, bloodshot eyes glaring at the two girls.
‘Sorry.’ they both quickly blurted.
‘ Now go find yourselves a book children!’ chanted Mrs. Bright

Eleanor and Isabella did not move a muscle. They stayed where they were in pure PROTEST!
‘ And what do you two think you’re doing AGAIN??!! I know reading is not your favourite subject but does NOT exclude you two! NOW SHOO!!!’ She screeched explodingly spraying spit on the two girls on every ‘b’ ‘s’ or ‘t’! The two girls were taken aback. They knew this time that she meant buisness. They quickly scuttled to the nearest bookshelf and Eleanor grabbed the first book that slid into her hand.

The beautiful picture-book had big, bold letters on the front saying ‘Choices!’
‘ Choices?’ Eleanor muttered slowly.
They slowly turned the old decayed page. There was a beautiful scene of tropical forests, dangerous mountains, busy cities and beach huts all from birds eye view. The text said:

‘Where would YOU live?
Whatever YOUR choices I will give.

I got home at about 7pm this evening after attending the East Norfolk Schools Indoor Athletics Final. It has been a long day and I am glad to be home but am very proud of the children who represented Hillside this afternoon. It was a very tough final with Moorlands, Edward Worlledge, Ormesby and Cliff Park in attendance at Lynn Grove. We arrived here after winning our semi-final in November with Moorlands from our competition finishing as best runners-up across the four semi-final competitions.

When I woke up this morning I must admit I was confident that we could win or come close to winning and to be honest was getting excited that we may get the opportunity to represent East Norfolk in the Winter Games tournament in March in Norwich. However, it was not to be our night tonight and we came up against some excellent opposition.

A few illnesses and injuries weakened us a little but the athletes who went more than made up for this and worked their hardest, often being put in for races at the shortest notice.

Hannah couldn’t be with us tonight due to illness so Jodie did a great job filling in for her in the dreaded Paarlauf race which is made up of 6 laps raced in pairs. Hannah W came in to make her debut and was obstructed in her first race but finished with pride. Unfortunately, she didn’t get the place she deserved. Toby took Taylor’s place in the boys Paarlauf and ran a great race with Josh on very short notice. Georgia jumped in to the obstacle race after ‘rolly-polly-gate’ filling in for Emily who was insistent that she couldn’t do a rolly-polly, even though she did one in the semi-final! Max ran well following his illness, you wouldn’t have known that he had been off school for a week.

I could go on to mention everybody but I would like to say I am incredibly proud of all the athletes and thankful to all the parents for their support they give in all the sporting events we undertake.

There is no need to be disappointed with fifth place tonight as it is fifth place out of around 20 schools in East Norfolk. Ormesby deserved their win today but we will be back next year and ready to go again. Despite some dodgy refereeing and measuring and some less than desirable coaching by other parties, the children didn’t complain once, even though I did, and they were as gracious in defeat tonight as they were in victory when we won the semi-final as few months ago. Well done Hillside, we are all proud of you.


CORRECTION: After a mistake in totalling the scores it transpires that we actually came forth!

100WC By Eleanor and Isabella

This is the 100 word challenge by Eleanor and Isabella.


It was pancake day again. Brings back memories… not good ones. It was when… when the accident happened. I was 5 years old. I cant even think about it… It was after school, when my mum started flipping the pancakes. I still see it now… Mum flipped the pancake up but it was not ready. BIG MISTAKE. I can still hear the flipping. THE SCREAMING! It came back down, sizzling, sizzling…… Mum was ready to catch it, but it landed on the floor. She stepped forward onto the sizzling sensation. The slip. I can hear it now. The crack, the scream…
