    Higher than the clouds

    Up and up I went, travelling through the high sky. Whenever I looked down I felt sick. It all looked like a blur to me. The town, well it didn’t look much like a town any more. I was too high up to see it properly. It was so titchy it looked like a little Lego town with Matchbox cars and people. The sight was amazing. Of course I loved it, flying in a hot air balloon, who wouldn’t? I decided to treasure it forever because It was the best time of my life!!!!!!!!

    looking down I was surprised to see how small everything seemed to be. There were lots of houses,cars and people, I could see lots of fields and roads. There were animals in the fields and I saw my very own house from high up above. I could see the clouds fluffy like a bunny. It felt as if we were bouncing from cloud to cloud. I saw lots of cars on the motorways driving in long lines of traffic. The roads and streets were lit up by the street lights, all lovely and so many different colours below me.

    Looking down I was surprised to see a man ten metres tall and a man one millimetre short. Soon I landed in a magical land with:
    • Yellow grass
    • Green sun
    • Mammoth sized bugs
    Suddenly a great big water bug leapt out of the water like a puma. “Luckily I always come prepared!” I fought it for five hours. One moment I thought I was done for. But I remembered my sword! All of a sudden my sword began to glow. A bolt of light suddenly shot out of my sword! Boom! Soon blood splattered.

    Looking down I was surprised to see two hot air balloons flying below our aeroplane.
    The colours of the balloon were highlighted by the early morning rays from the sun, that was starting to break through the morning mist. This covered the dark green forest that stretched for miles below as far as the horizon could see.

    Who was flying the balloons, where were they heading? What must it feel like to be floating in the sky, moving with the winds and unsure of where the final landing would be? How peaceful to be moving gently through the sky, amongst the birds who roam freely.

    Looking down I was surprised to see a misty forest as we floated down to land. But, as we floated down we stopped and shot down from the sky. Then we were in a tree, a very tall tree we struggled down. Then we found out that we were in the middle of the forest. It took two hours to get out. When we were out of the forest were two miles from where we took off.

    Looking down I was surprised to see a walking snowman!!! It had a green velvety hat and a bright Satsuma for a nose. I was so shocked I made the hot air balloon swoop down, so I could nearly touch the white glittering snowman. He said hello I said hello back but I was extremely shocked! He took me to his igloo, we had hot chocolate, we started talking he was very nice. He said once a boy had met him and they had a lot of fun together and also the boy had a dog.

    Once there was a boy called Charlie who loved the sky. All day he would either: read about the sky, watch programmes about the sky or pretend he was the sky. One day his mother said “Do you want to go to the fair?”
    “YES” he shouted. So later that afternoon they drove over to the fair (in their red and yellow car). He saw a balloon. So he hopped in and took off. When he looked down it was high! When he got home he said “I hate the sky now” so he never ever played sky again.

    They looked down and they were surprised to see the wondrous view. It was fantastic! They could just see the town, The houses looked like tiny squares and you couldn’t see anyone or even anything except houses. But then they saw a forest fire (they were over a massive forest) and it was spreading quickly. But there was a problem, because they were too high to see if there were any people. They couldn’t even see any vehicles and if they went down the hot air balloon could catch on fire. Should they phone the fire fighters or should they not?

    Looking down I was surprised to see how beautiful the world was below. Through the fluffy clouds I could see the wonder of Sheffield. I saw lots of houses & streetlamps. Cars moved around like little ants in the distance.
    “Hello down there!” I shouted. No one answered back. Reluctantly my sister peered over the basket. My Dad didn’t like it either. We were very high up.
    Gradually the balloon began to sink. Our journey was ending. The houses got bigger and the earth came closer. My sister sighed. “I’m glad that was over.” She said happily.

    Kate and Dannie were at the fair. Dannie really wanted to go on the balloon – ride but Kate said it was too much money, so Dannie decided to go on the boring carousel.
    “Roll up, roll up for the big balloon ride,” shouted a man in the far corner. Dannie couldn’t bear it any longer, so she ran up to it and, without anybody noticing, she climbed in. Kate was so shocked, she froze . Soon Dannie was soaring above the most puffy clouds you can imagine. By this time, Dannie had stood up in the balloon and started waving happily.
