Pets are nice creatures to have because they keep us company. It is nice to have a dog if you like to go walking because they can go with you, but if you want something to sit on your lap then a cat would be better. Normally you feed your pet twice a day. You can give them treats if they are good. I would give a dog Pedigree biscuits and a cat little cat biscuts. Cats and dogs like Christmas presents as well as people. I really like cats, dogs, rabbits and horses. My favourite pet is a cat.

The under-14's and 16's got the same. The under-16's won the championship and the under-14's won the league. This year I will be with the under-12's. They aren't very good. I don't think we will win the league or the championship. I like football very much. I hope to play as long as I can. John Booth
Hello. This is a story about what I did last Christmas, and what presents I got. I woke up at seven in the morning. I went into the hall and saw that my stocking was empty but there was a big bag beside it full of toys. When I had finished showing them to my parents, I went in to the sitting room and looked at what was there. There were books, a kindergarten for dolls, an Egyptian painting set and 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' I had a great time at Christmas. My uncle was with us too. Devon Brady

I like sports. My favourite sports are running and swimming. Volleyball is alright too. My favourite cross-country runner is Sonia O'Sullivan. Every year we go to Vicarstown to run against other runners too. Last year I got a medal for the under-twelve girls. The year before that I won the school cross-country. When we started the school cross-country, I was way ahead of everyone else. I wouldn't mind being a runner when I grow up. But it would be very hard. In school we have a lot of sports such as running, rounders and table-tennis.
