Well done Gemma, Jessica, Chloe and Carl on your amazing efforts.

It all started with an envelope that turned up in the mail last Tuesday… It said "To Kate." I thought "That's mums name" but why did it say her name on a army camoed envelope.I was wondering What it said? Mum walked in the room and saw it she snatched it from my hands opened it up and burst into tears. Mum got up and slowly sluggishly walked to the photo of dad and threw it on the ground and ran into her room, leaving the envelope and the photo on the floor. I ran after her wanting to know what it had meant, but I was too late she had slammed the door and I could hear her sobbing into her pillow. I ran to the nearest computer and typed in army camo envelopes to find out what it meant. Nothing came up. Suddenly the door slammed open and a scary looking man was at the door looking through my eyes. I felt the most adrenaline I've ever had. I was spooked. I slowly got out of the chair and started to walk towards the man. What was I thinking walking towards a scary looking man. The man walked backwards and then placed a box on the ground. It was the postie. He then slammed the door and strolled back to his van. I opened the envelope. Then the box. The box had dad's army suit in it. And the envelope had a piece of paper saying we have found Fred Michelle's body lying next to this suit hopefully this will give you some closure I ran to the envelope and opened it up and there was a photo of a man lying next to the suit I looked at the man's face and saw a face that was not dads. I had a feeling that someone was watching me and looked up and saw my mother's tear stained face looking at me "He's dead" she said brutally. "No this isn't him" I said. She asked "What do you mean" I showed her the photo and hope shone on her face. She made a phone call to the army and asked them to check if Fred Michelle was dead there was a ruffle of papers at the other end. 

It all started with an envelope that turned up in the mail last Tuesday…It was a big brown envelope with a blob of red whack with a E on it. It smelt of candles and the city which was odd because we live right out in the country where the city is hours of driving. I went inside to tell Mum if she knew anyone who’s name started with E. She mustn't known of any one as she said “no sorry” I looked at it wondering who would start with E that i knew. I thought of my friend called Ella and thought why would it be her as i would talk to her every day as we were best friends so i wouldn’t know why she wouldn’t tell me. I had know i dear who else would've sent it to me. I decided the best way was to open it. I opened it and screamed, there was a little duckling saying I see you. I'll say this, I'm terrified of ducks, after one chased me in the swamp so this really freaked me out. Nobody knew about my duck-phobia, at least, I didn't think anyone knew. Then it hit me. The envelope smashed through my window with the force of a bullet. It was exactly the same as the other one and as I unfurled it I read notice me? Who was watching, and why. I looked out my window to see if anyone was there, but i couldn’t see anyone. Suddenly my bedroom door shut I went to open it, but it was locked, and my door doesn’t have a lock on it, ok something weird was definitely going on. I was freaking out then a duck was in my room, I hate ducks THIS WAS MY WORST NIGHTMARE!!!  I kept on pinching myself to wake up but it didn't work.

It all started with an envelope that turned up in the mail last Tuesday…

it was a small envelope addressed with my name Taylor Made. I took it inside very confused. "Was it really for me?,if so what is it for?"I thought. I asked mum about it and She told me to open it. I couldn't believe my eyes. It was an invitation to star in a movie called. Tale of a intermediate girl. I was the perfect age as I was starting intermediate school this year.

 I showed mum and we both started squealing with delight. I read out loud and found out I was going to Paris to work with my number one idle Cathy Cassidy. I screamed. My dad entered looking confused. " what's all this racket for?" 
Mum explained it all and dad was over the moon for me. We decided to leave straight away.   
To the airport we went I was packed and ready to go. 

On the way to the airport my mouth was pocket rocketing all the way and I couldn't stop it. Once we got to the airport we went to the lady and gave her our 1st class passenger tickets. She said "These aren't 1st class," and made us follow her to a part of the airport I've never seen before she said "These tickets are for this plane," I looked out the window and there was our very own plane. Dad said "Wow we get our very own plane." I hopped on it and started texting my friends. I couldn't  believe I was going to have my very own movie about me. It took us 24 hours to get there. I could not sleep I was so excited. I started to get a little nervous as the plane landed. What if the director Cathy Cassidy didn't want me after all. 

As we started to get nearer to the set the butterflies kicked in. The set was amazing set up exactly like an intermediate school. On the other side of the intermediate school was a house set up. The room that would be my character Ella Rangers room. It was magical. Pushed up against the left wall was a four poster bed decorated with purple bed sheets,duvets and pillows. Beside it was a sparkly purple bedside table. On the right was a huge walk in wardrobe. Smack bang in the middle was a really pretty purple cat rug
It all started with an envelope that turned up in the mail last Tuesday…
I had dark brown hair with green eyes, my skin was always pale, i was always known to be a shy person so it's extremely rare for him to get a letter since he doesn't have any friends or relatives that he still keeps in contact with.
The envelope was ghost white, it had my name written on the front in fancy writing like someone had gotten a quill and ink and started to write, the envelope was sealed with red wax; a design was marked in the middle of the wax stamp. Confusion gathered in my head, I  was to scared to open it that I  gave it to my mum to keep.10 years later when i was 22, my mum gave the envelope back, since i had forgot about it so my mum had to recap what is was then It click into my mind, it was the ghost white envelope which i was scared to open when i was 12. I sat and thought for a minute 'should I  open it and see what's inside or should i put it away in a dark corner and forget all about it. After 10 minutes or so I  gathered my  thoughts and wits and opened it...Inside a ghostly white piece of paper sat staring up at me. It read the words you are under arrest of kidnapping Mr Thomas I thought it wasn't true, but then suddenly out of nowhere police sirens kept getting louder and louder then over 100 police cars appeared in my driveway. I ran and ducked under my bed and read the rest of the envelope it then said 'this is payback' I thought to myself what did I do to make the police show up at my house.

This takes shared cooperative writing to the next level.. Using Google docs the kids start a story. Then after five minutes of writing they send it to to the person to the right of them.. This carriers on for four or five passes.
The end result is lots of reading, writing and learning from others writing styles.
