The Sock Monster



The real story of the missing sock. A long time ago a girl called Olivia had lost her sock and then she went missing.

Joey the detective decided to hunt for clues. He discovered some thick,black wool.

“It must mean that some sort of sock monster must eaten the dark black sock. But where is Olivia? Hmmmmm, well this happened when she got back to school from swimming, so the sock monster must be somewhere in school.”

Joey, the detective, decided to check Year 6 first. Nothing was there apart from some ruined books.


What was that he thought to himself.

“Hmmmm where did this monster come from and what was that noise?”

Olivia screams could be heard all the way around the school.

“I think it came from Year 3. ”

Then there was a loud clunking noise. What was that?

Joey sprinted down the corridor towards Year 3 and spotted a massive, black and purple sock monster

A strange thing happened at swimming today…


Today at swimming one of Olivia’s socks went missing! Mrs JD emptied everyones bags, but there was no sock to be found. Mrs JD suggested that maybe the sock monster had eaten it and perhaps we could write a story about thimysterious disappearance!

“Prepare to lose!” He boasted.

“Here’s hare showing off again. ” whispered Mole.

Information page about a dragon


In Big Writing on Friday we were shown a picture of a dragon. Our challenge was to user our imaginations to create an information page about this dragon. We recapped the features of an information page such as: paragraphs, sub headings, bullet points, boxes, did you knows?


This dragon’s family name is called Ride Wage-taile This information page will tell you all about this type of dragon. Are you ready to read about a Ride Wage-taile?

Where to find her?

To find this beautiful creature you have to travel over many seas. At the very top of the earth this dragon is living. You will have to travel 100,000miles which is a very long way, so if you want to hunt for this creature make sure you are prepared !
