Dear Parent and Students,

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

So, this term, our school library is looking for its own motto.

Therefore, families are invited to write an original motto that can be used in our school library.  Please use the entry form below and return to the labelled box at the office.

Entry closes Thursday 1st April.

Families are welcome to submit more than one motto.

The family who has written the ‘winning motto’ will receive a selection of books.

The prize is on display at the office. The winning motto will be announced during our assembly in Term 2 .  The motto will be on display in the Library for 2021.

Narrative Writing -6B

The Boy Who Cried Wolf

The shepherd boy leaped with joy as his dad told him that he had the responsibility of protecting the livestock from the hungry, ferocious wolves. “This job may be hard because if the wolf comes and starts gobbling up the sheep, I would not know what to do” wimped the boy. “It’s not my cup of tea but it will make me more responsible and confident” cheered the boy.

The boy was filled with glee because it was his first day protecting the sheep from the savage wolves. He stood on top of the mountain with a confident look. After a few hours later he got bored. He gazed over the fields and thought to himself “Why don’t I prank the villagers?”

The boy thought to himself, ‘What if I trick the village people … by crying wolf?” The boy had an evil smirk on his face and said, “This will be a piece of cake.” Without hesitation the boy exclaimed, “WOLF.. WOLF..!” One of the sheep quickly threw a mud ball at the boy’s mouth and questioned, “ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND!” The boy was speechless.

“Why would you do that!” exclaimed the sheep. The boy completely ignored the sheep and spat out the mud ball. “Stupid sheep” the boy kicked the sheep and with no hesitation he cried wolf “Wolf Wolf” All of a sudden the whole village ran out to scare off the hungry, scary, ferocious wolves. The villagers saw nothing but the shepherd boy shedding tears of laughter “You should’ve seen the look on your faces!” the boy hysterically laughed. Everybody stormed back to their homes but one old furious man.

The old man limped to the boy, he pulled his ear and exclaimed “Who do you think you are making me walk in and out my shed!” “It wasn’t me, it wasn’t me, it was the sheep!” The boy moaned. “It’s written all over your face” the old man said furiously, as he limped to his ramshackle shed.  The boy smirked “Did that old man think he can stop me with those stupid words?” The boy felt a faint nudge behind him, he slowly turned around and saw the hungry, ferocious, slobbery wolf staring him down. The boy tried taking a step back but he quickly realised there was a cliff behind him. The boy could feel the evil aura the wolf had around it. He felt shivers down his spine! The shepherd boy felt something warm and wet flowing down his leg, he was hoping it was the wolf’s saliva but it really wasn’t. He could not move a single muscle! Without any hesitation the boy cried “Wolf.. the wolf is really here! As loud as his could but nobody came out. “I’m not falling for your stupid trick, ha ha”, the old men giggled. The wolf started gobbling up the sheep one by one. “Mmm.., those sheep were delicious... but I’m still hungry” the wolf growled. The shepherd boy and the ferocious wolf looked at each over silently.

The boy shivered, “You’re barking up the wrong tree, I’m- I’m not tasty”. All of a sudden a crowd of villagers appeared “Hold your horses!” they roared. The wolf was clearly outmatched and intimidated by the flames, shovels and pitch forks. The boy was relieved but the old man was still mad at the boy. 

After all the terror that had happened, the shepherd boy has finally learned his lesson. Now the boy knows if you do something horrid, karma will hit you with consequences. By Sareen 6B
