Fellview School have recently held a story-writing competition and we are honoured to be able to share the winning tales!
All the stories are original and from the amazing minds of the children at Fellview Primary School, 2022. Spelling mistakes have been corrected for ease of reading but all words and nearly all the punctuation are the children’s own work. The stories were sent to four authors to judge and the judges scored the children’s stories based on:
The judges thoroughly enjoyed reading all entries and chose one from each year group as their favourite. We hope you enjoy reading them.

He was having a walk in the woods and fell in a deep dark hole and as he was falling through the deep dark he was screaming louder than a jet.
Then he crashed into the rapid splashing waves and landed on the sandy calm beach he walked up the steep rocky steps and saw a colossal town called London and he saw bright yellow lights.
Little Hedgehog walked up to the humungous town there was a huge giant but actually they were people walking and jumbo monsters but actually they were cars buzzing by then Little Hedgehog walked some more.

“Do you want to be my friend?” asked Little Hedgehog. Squirrel and Skunk said “Yes we would like that very much thank you.”
Little Hedgehog became best friends with squirrel and skunk.
Then Little Hedgehog saw some shadows he thought it was his mum and dad because the shadows were spiky and prickly.
He ran as fast as his little feet can carry him. He was so happy he nearly cried but when he got there it was a different family of hedgehogs.
He was so sad squirrel and skunk nearly cried as well then they walked back to London and went through the whizzing cars and went back through the giant people and went through the bright yellow lights and down the humungous steps down into the deep, dark hole and back to the sparkly woods.

A few hours later after the party I was sweaty I saw a bath I jumped in after the bath I went down to the cellar I made some potions I made love lightening and happy and love and candy and a big one a love crown that I was wearing, I made a cloak WOOOO I shouted and I made a drift “WOOOHOOOO I’m happy I cried I went outside and flew in the sky I’m glad that I made the cloak. I’m so happy and glad and wonderful I’m really good at flying I’m just so yey”
After I went outside to fly flew down to do some more magic abracadabra kerbang I made a house I can’t believe it can you Cooley. I ventured in the house.
“Oh yes yes I do it’s wonderful yes.” The house was good.
“Yes Coaly it’s wonderful I just can’t believe it.”

“Fine” as I stomped off I was angry.
“Bye bossy” Coaly snapped.
“Bye bossy rude pain.” I snarled.
Then suddenly a knock on the door.

“Hello” said a strange familiar voice.
Coaly dashed in front of me _____ you. Hey get out of my way you called me bossy and rude why do you care about me.” I cried soft and flatly.
“I care because I love you _____ I absolutely love you.” Coaly settled in front of me.
“You care you care you care.” I kept on repeating.
It was a cold January morning, and in the old stone storage shed in the straw 5 puppies had just been born, and only one of them would do great things.
One warm summer morning, Joe was taking his teenage sheepdog Swift for a walk around their farm before breakfast “Come on Swift we need to go check on the sheep” said Joe. Once they had finished checking on the sheep they went in for breakfast and sat down at the table, “bed, Swift”
Swift trotted over and sat in her bed, Joe picked up the newspaper and then he turned to the ‘Farm and Countryside’ page, the main headline read: ‘Sheepdog trials in two months’ time’. Joe put down the paper and said to his dad “Dad can I enter Swift into the sheepdog trials?”
“Yes, but only if you train her” replied Joe’s dad.
After breakfast they took Swift out to a field, there was nothing there but grass. “Where are the sheep Dad?”
“You’re not using sheep until she’s learnt the commands” said Joe’s dad and with that he turned on his heel and walked off. Joe started with the easy commands, “away!” called Joe, and Swift set off and ran around “lie down” Swift stopped and lay down on the grass panting. “She knows the easy commands now Dad” said Joe as they came into the kitchen “I saw” said Joe’s dad “I was outside doing the ewes,” Then they sat down for lunch, when they were about to go outside, the rain came down “huh, the sheep needed that” said Joe’s dad “but good we’ve already got the hay in.”
Finally the day of the sheepdog trials, Joe had all the things he needed: Swift (obviously), whistle, shepherd’s crook and farmer’s flat cap. They were ready to go. It was a 30 minute drive to get to the sheepdog trials it was in Joe’s dad’s friend’s field so his dad knew where the field was. As soon as they got there, Joe got all his stuff ready for the sheepdog trials, soon enough it was Joe and Swift’s turn, and they came out onto the grass and over the loudspeaker came “now we have Joe and Swift” “Right then” said Joe then he shouted “away!” and Swift went down to get the sheep “COMEBY!” yelled Joe and Swift turned right and brought the sheep up then one sheep tried to escape the group but Swift stopped it. “Comeby!” yelled Joe and Swift led them into the pen and Joe ran over and closed the gate to keep the sheep in.
Later Joe and his dad were sitting in the stand and watching the other people and their dogs, finally over the loudspeaker came “In the Junior Section 1st place goes to…Joe and his dog Swift.” Joe heard people clapping calmly around him, 5 minutes later he went to collect his trophy, once they got home, Joe put the trophy on his bedroom windowsill to remember the day him and Swift won the sheepdog trials.
‘The Vanishing Snowman’
The children were shocked when they ran outside and saw the snowman had gone. Milo cried “Where is the snowman?” “Don’t cry, maybe the snowman is playing hide and seek. Let’s go on a snowman hunt.” Said Matilda. Milo jumped in excitement “Yay!” First, they checked the playground, it was empty. Then the they checked the field, but it was so slippery they fell. Last of all they checked the woods but it wasn’t there.
The trees were tall and dark. The children could hear the birds singing. There was a frog hopping everywhere Milo said “Let’s follow that big frog!” The frog zigzagged while the children ran behind the frog and soon they were in the middle of the wood. There was a small pool and the frog jumped in with a loud splash. “Oh” said Milo in a disappointed voice. “Never mind, look at that over there.” Milo looked where Matilda was pointing: Beside the pool stood an old shed. The children walked over and opened the door….
Inside there was a small armchair, a wooden table and chairs and on the wall, a picture of a man dressed in a fur hat, big fur gloves, a padded jacket and a beard. He had a faraway look in his eyes. Written on a picture was a name ‘Captain Scott’.
“Wow” said Malo. “It’s amazing” said Matilda. “What’s that?” “I don’t know, I’ve never heard of him.” Let’s go home.” Said Matilda. “It’s nearly tea time.” They opened the door and gasped – the pond and the wood had disappeared and instead there were rocky hills covered in snow, the snow and ice everywhere. It was cold. It was so cold that the children shivered and hugged themselves to keep warm. “It’s so cold” said Milo “Shall we go back?”
Matilda turned around and screamed “It’s gone!” Milo burst into tears saying “How are we going home now?” “I want my mum!” Matilda turned around to see what (they) can use. Snow. “Let’s build a snow shelter.” Milo stopped crying and was happy to help his sister build a snow shelter. The children couldn’t get to sleep because they were so cold and hungry. In the morning when they came outside they saw the shed and ran to it as fast as they could. The house took them back to the woods. They raced back home as fast as they could and had a giant breakfast of porridge bacon, eggs and sausages. They also had a hot chocolate and refused to think about Antarctica.
The snowman (was) still guarding the shelter when suddenly it began to move…
