    One day, two boys, Ben and Michael, dreamed hardly about visiting Rio de Janeiro, so they planned to meet behind the local library to plan how and when to go there. They were both very excited about the little adventure they have planned; however, Ben had to warn Michael to keep quiet “Ssh! Mate! The wall’s listening!!” Suddenly, a big brick ear came out of the wall and said helpfully “Don’t worry, I will take you there!” The boys replied repeatedly “How, how, how!” The ear explained back in simplicity, “Simple, just follow me!” And so they did. Soon after, they told the now, floating brick ear to get them back home before bedtime, because the parents would be worried. They had a very exciting time and wanted to come back for more.

    I was having a strange day today, I kept seeing funny stuff happening. As I was walking down the street, I saw a wall with a weird thing on. It was an ear, I thought I was going mad. I started talking to it. It was listening to me. “What is your name?” I asked.
    It didn’t reply to me.
    “What is your name?” I shouted it again
    “Aha, ” I said. “I know why, because you’re only an ear, not a mouth.”

    There was once a wall and whenever you said, magnificent, it would poke it ear out. There was boy who was new to the area in Essex, and he was good at using powerful words. The boy liked to hang out at the wall, as somebody told him that if you say, magnificent, an ear would poke out. So he tried it everyday, but it didn’t work, the boy wished very hard for it to work. The wall started to poke it’s ear out, and the boy realised that it was graffiti, shaped like an ear, and popped out when you said, magnificent.

    Tom dreaded Saturdays even though there was no school. Tom had to visit his auntie Beth every week with grandma. They had to catch same boring bus that went the same boring way and it took forever. This week Grandma told me that if I wanted to make the journey go quicker there was a fun thing I could do. If I stared hard out of the window I would see some exciting things. I kept on looking then I saw it a massive ear that just appeared from a brick wall. It was amazing. No more BORING journeys.

    It was another typical day in Y5. Fintan was playing the drums with his rulers, Alex, Ben and Daniel were talking about the latest computer games and the girls were singing songs from Frozen! Mrs Barrett quietly asked everyone to be quiet but we carried on. Mrs Barrett got louder ” PLEASE CAN YOU BE QUIET!” Seamus took that as an indication to start dancing on the table! Mrs Barrett was bored of asking us, so she started talking to the wall. The wall seemed to be doing something very strange. Everybody went quiet. The wall had grown an EAR!

    Ben the giant was on his daily walk. He could see the human city. He went over to a brick house. He wondered if the brick wall was bigger than his ear, so he put his own ear next to the wall. Just then he slipped on some ice and his ear got stuck into the wall. He shouted for help but no human invention could help him. In his village the giants were getting annoyed. “What is that noise?” shouted the chief. Bens mum went to see what the noise was. She saw Ben and within four seconds he was out. The run back home was fun.

The wall quickly replied “Of course I can, haven’t you seen the size of my ear? Anyway, hi my name’s Dan!” Bert was shocked that the wall could talk. “How can you talk?” Dan replied back with a long story then said how he was a human and needed help getting out of the wall.

    The wall was gratified as an ear, scaring people lots. This wasn’t an exception for these people .they were tricked by that same wall and unfortunately stopped their chat. Later, the wall was looking like it was coming out! The same people were scared again out of their wits. Even later, the people, scared and responsible, were sent to community service and…. Ironically it was so well painted that it even scared them witless! They then said “Shush, the wall is listening!”

    The wind rushes past me, everything is a blur. The last thing I remember is the sucking noise the wall made, as I was ripped off my owners head. I can’t move. It feels like I am in another dimension.

    I try to wriggle free of whatever it is that’s grasping me, but I can’t. I am stuck inside the wall. Everyone is whispering about me. It seems they are scared. I am now lonely and scared myself. I strain myself to hear what they are saying. I don’t hear much. I just see a man with only one ear…

    Tom was having a hard first day at school muttering to himself how unfair the teachers were being to him
    “It’s no use,” he said as he sat down to sulk by the wall when something answered him.
    “I know.” Then a enormous ear appeared and sucked him up.
    “Never seen you before,” it said to me as i disappeared me into the abyss.
    “Well thats because i’ve just started school,”
    “Mmmmmm the tastiest”
    Then I was back in my bed when I realised my arm was gone, and then I heard someone,
    or something far away saying “Mmmmmm,Tasty.”

    Sophie and her friend were talking quietly about what to do for they were stuck in a parallel world where every child has to do a challenge. “Ssshhh”, she said “the wall is listening”! There was a ripple in the wall and a face appeared and laughed so hard that tears fell out of the wall and with a puff fell into the fire and lava below. “You’re absolutely right”, boomed the wall, “I was listening”. Sara, Sophie’s friend, said “just jump for it”. A while later they made it across and found their other friend dithering on a puzzle.

    It all started on a sun tamed morning when a little girl call Emilia got out of Her bed. When a time machine appeared in her back garden. So she went out and stepped into the time machine. The next minute she was in a different world. She looked around and saw that the wall is evil. It was listening to everything she said. Even when she wasn’t next to it. Her voice could travel. Suddenly a beam of light appeared from the sky. A magic substance of dust fell from the sky and took her back to her warm cosy bed. Where she woke up relived and happy,.

    “So it is!” Sarah exclaimed. The wall seemed to have grown an ear and was avidly listening to their conversation! “Man, this is seriously creepy.” Eleanor answered, looking at the wall and shuddering. A voice rumbled from inside the wall, “Do carry on, don’t mind me.”
    “Ahhhhhh!” The girls screamed as they ran away.
    “Ha ha, we got them there didn’t we!” Bob laughed as he and Dave climbed out of the plastic ear they had stuck to the wall. “Got who?” The wall thundered. “Who, tell me!” Bob looked at Dave.
    “Was that you?”
    “No, no it wasn’t”

    They said I’d have a great time. They never mentioned bullies ruled the school for gifted giants. Every day I have been bullied but you’re not here to hear me moan. You are here to listen to what happened last Wednesday. I was walking down the hall when suddenly Neil, the bully, appeared. “LUNCH MONEY! Now!” he menaced. In my fright I gasped “no” and he pushed me so hard against the wall my giant ear went through it! The good thing was that the headmaster stepped through his office door at the same time, catching the bully and ordering the caretaker to fetch a crowbar.
