Star stories with Stage 3

May 2021 Stage 3's investigation of space, including the stars, has resulted in some imaginative writings from the Year 5 and 6 students. Here are two samples of creative writing inspired by how the constellations (made out of marshmallows) got into the sky. Whaliomious Whaliomious the whale was best friends with Poseidon. Poseidon threw a party and invited all the great creatures and gods, all except Hades. Hades heard about the party and devised a master plan to destroy Poseidon, Zeus and the others. The day of the party arrived and everyone was having fun. As the moon dipped below the horizon everything fell silent. Hades appeared and started chanting an ominous chant. Whaliominous reacted quickly and told Posiedon to create a tsunami. As Posiedon forged the tsunami Whaliomious swam up the giant wave and launched himself at Hades, smacking him with his tail. After Hades was banished the gods placed a constellation of Whaliomious in the heavens to remember his courage. By Samuel Stage 3C Constellation Joe Joe was born into a family of ninjas. He was a talented young man and as he grew he became famous for his skills. On a dangerous mission for King Harold he had to cross the tallest mountains in all the land. “Be careful,” said the King, “there is a monstrous beast that lives in those mountains.” Joe hiked the mountains bravely and when he reached the mountain's peak he saw plumes of smoke rising from the fabled dragon with the head of a horse. He took out his bow and with great power and accuracy shot the dragon. However, the beast did not even get scratched from his mighty arrow. Joe, quick as a cat, leapt towards the dragon. Opening it's mouth wide the dragon swallowed Joe whole… but as soon as the dragon swallowed it felt it's belly rip from the inside and it collapsed with Joe still inside. The kingdom was safe and to remember Joe the King prayed to the Lord to place a constellation of him in the sky each night. By Ramsar, Stage 3C
