  1. A Murder Mystery at Kearsley West !

    In the old, eerrie school at 9:24 pm there was a body of a dedacated student found in the corridor. The young girl called Athena Mariã, who had a evil mother called Alia Mariã and her big sister who also attends the school, was a very lovely youthful girl. On the day she was murdered her sister was pondering and looking round her school. On cctv we caught this her sister telling her that she would soon put her into a deep sleep. In the school basement her mothers DNA was found, on the wooden, ready to collapse table. Slowly her mother dragged her self out of the room. Crying a sea of tears, her mother as slow as a snail walked home, or so we thought! Just a few seconds later she re-entered the room and her eldest daughter was there. Was it really her mother or was it her big sister…?!!! Her blood as red as a lushuers straberry was all over her sisters bloody hands!!!

    The End

  2. At 3:30 pm Amber came to Gracie’s house and had a sleepover they tidied up her room and it was all tidy . Later that day they had a disco party. On the karaoke machine they had beautiful lights that lit the room up and a disco ball on the ceiling . Finally they went to sleep. Then things got mysterious… At 12:00pm they saw Lacey and Esme running round the streets and finally their feet stooped at the old door at Gracie’s house. Slowly, they crept into Gracie’s room. They stole… Gracie’s disco ball , wrecked her karaoke machine, stole her dads Rolex, her mums jewellery and finally but not least all Gracie’s jojo bows that cost £50 .

    We decided to hide under Mrs Todd’s desk.Quickly the thief graddeb the iPad and ran down the stairs . Running to the door before the thief got away .

  4. On the 29th of January at 9:46am Mrs Burke’s Funko Pop (Jyn Erso) went missing. Mrs Cooper rushed to me and told me that I had to figure out who stole it. “You have to find out who stole it! You’re the only person who can!” Mrs Cooper exclaimed. So now I’m hiding in the air vent. Quietly, I take notes of all the movement. Cautiously, I try not to move a muscle. A few minutes later, Mrs Todd enters the room. Is she the thief? I watched like I had the eyes of a hawk.

    9:58am: Mrs Todd finally leaves. She is not the suspect.
    10:17am: Ms Fitton enters. She only came to get some paperwork, then she left.
    10:23am: Ms Harrison comes in to the room. She grabs a pile of books and leaves.
    10:32am: Mr Cooke enters and grabs the other Funko Pop!

    It’s him. I don’t know how I didn’t think of him, because he loves Funko Pops.

  8. It was dark, thunder and lightning doomed the sky throughout the lands. Red and blue lights swivelled around the school as police roamed the grounds, Mrs Todd was MURDERED in the staff room… The school had been mostly evacuated but I stayed, the police knew me for my talent in forensic investigation and finding evidence. “It looks like she was shot through the stomach, The hole is the size of a 12′ inch bullet.” considered the head investigator, chewing his pencil while looking round the body. Hours later, they had narrowed down to two suspects, Mr Farrington and Mrs Dawson, but suddenly, they found a gun in Mrs Dawson’s coat! Hours later, Mrs Dawson was arrested and everything was well again, Mrs Todds funeral was large, but will Mrs Dawson ever be forgiven and released?
