Today, at our school, it was sports day and we had a two hundred metre run and a long jump. When it was a break a big black dog wandered in. First thing the dog did was chase a group of kids around. The dog also sat down with a group of girls and started to bark. Eventually the dog was taken away. At our school the fastest animal was the big black dog.

In the North Pole just before Christmas, the eves were busy wrapping presents for big and small children. The smallest elf worked very hard like all the others but he could stretch so that he could stack the highest presents on the very top of the gift mountain. One day he stretched so high, he reached up out of the factory where he saw the world and was interested to find out more. He packed his bags, took a reindeer and sped off across the ice, over the mountains until he reached the edge of Greenland. Instantly he missed all the other elves and wondered if they were thinking about him too.
