The Story Behind The Knotted Gun

I was at grans house and  it was time for my bedtime story.

“This is a special story,a  story so very close to my heart this is a story about The Knotted Gun” whispered my gran.

“But i already know the story of the knotted gun everyone knows that story.”i replied

“oh but you dont know the true tale”said my gran with a crackle in her voice

“true tale?”i said nervously

“yessss…….oh look at the time i shall finish the story tomorrow, time for bed!”

So i got into bed, tossed and turned  then, fell asleep and never woke up…




My telling off was bad,

“This is unbeleivable!” screamed Miss Tale.

“But i didn’t understand the instructions.”That was  my excuse, but of couse it was no use, no matter how hard i tried.

It was just  a simple quiz about rocks,but to my teacher, it was an exam as important as anything.I thought i had done quite well,scoring a high 80% ;but miss tale expected 90%.I got the highest score in the class.Is that  not good enough?

Detention was only for me. I was puzzeled


but i didn’t understand the instructions BY ISABEL H

“But I didn’t understand the instructions!”

I screamed at my teacher, she just sighed and shook her head,

I screamed and screamed but she still said nothing,

i rolled on the floor shaking my fists,

but she just walked away,

i stomped right up to her and screamed “say something!!!”

As you guessed she said nothing

I was a foolish 4 year old,

And what happened next scarred for life,


She smacked me on the face,


Emma’s poem

But i didnt understand the instructons i said

she said it wasnt an excuse.

well, i thought that was a bit harsh.

but if i said that i would end up in the marsh

Of course i ended up in detention,

they never give you much attention.

Could anything be worse,

maybe ending up with a curse.

but of course curses arnt true,

if they where i would be dead, phew!

when my mum asked how school went,

i lied and said its fine.

whilst sucking on a lime,

i love limes,

there my favourite.

Now its time for detention.
