Year 7 have made up their own ghost stories inspired by ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’. Here is an extract from Tino's work. Miss Pateman commented 'So brilliant. I really enjoyed this! Tino has a really distinctive engaging style and his story is highly creative'. Well done Tino!
Billy Bones was born in a London estate, his father was a Lord. Lord Bones. Billy wasn’t very interested with grand balls and afternoon tea, he wanted to see the world.
At the age of six, he decided he wanted to be a sailor. He wanted to study the world; he became a master of Geography. He studied like his life depended on it, including every trading route, secret passage, ship killer, country and colony.
He had huge freckles but luckily, they had started to fade. He thought that this was the reason people couldn’t tell he was adult. He was sixteen no so he wanted to be seen as an adult. Consequently, having freckles was unfortunate. Billy had short, brown hair, a yellowish face and he now had a long, gangly body as he had grown to six foot five.
Billy had enough money to hire a crew and build a ship. He decided to get a man-of-war. The stallion had fifty-eight gut shattering cannons and bear-like body a true menacing, malicious monster.
They were going to try to intercept a secret Spanish man of war which had one hundred guns – a true beast.
Carrying five million gold pieces.
