Deep in the middle of an ancient, monumental forest there was a silver , golden castle. If you went closer you could see prickly, crunchy bushes that are part of a large, green maze. In the sky there was thick, misty fog that was hiding the castle’s brown, wooden door. I wonder who made the maze? At the top of the gold, long tower lived a princess, queen, king and prince What a pretty princess she was! Behind the castle there was a garden with lots of bright, colourful flowers because the servants planted them.
Deep in the middle of a whopping, ancient forest there was a silver, mammoth castle. Surrounding the frightful, vast castle’s walls was a white, misty fog. If you looked closely you would see large, green prickly bushes that made up a complicated, monumental maze. I wonder who built the maze? Deep inside of the castle there lived a kings, queen, princess and a price but the prince wanted to break up with her. However, he couldn’t do it because the queen would kill him! What a pretty princess she was!
When I was in space I was in a rocket and I could see planet Earth. I saw an asteroid coming towards me so I didn’t know what to do. So I moved the rocket so that it wouldn’t destroy it because it would break it, which means I would not be able to fly anymore. I sent my friends and my mum letters saying I was having a great time in space doing all fun things, I wish they were here with me sharing this fun. After spending a few days in space I was really starting to miss my mum and friends so I decided to set off coming back down to Earth. I was really glad when I got down to Earth because everyone had done a welcome home party for me.

One snowy cold day it was the day that I got to go on a space adventure. I quickly made my breakfast and changed my clothes whilst my breakfast was cooling down. I ate my breakfast then off I went with my mum, dad and my family to the launch pad. Once I got there I said my final goodbye to some of my friends.
I went to a strange mysterious room which looked like a staff room and got changed into my suit ready to travel. After two minutes I set off into space for my first adventure. After two hours I saw that a spaceships had crashed and there was an alien in there. I decided to help the alien to fix his spaceship. I asked the alien “Is it always so peaceful and quiet up here?”
The alien said “Yes it is because you see there is only peaceful aliens like me and plants here!”
I hopped back in to my red, white and blue spaceship and off I went. I stopped at a strange place that had snakes that were poisonous and I thought it was extraordinary and odd. All of the wild animals started to run after me and chase me but there was one problem. My astronaut suit engine broke and I was running out if air! I ran and out of the corner of my eye I saw a sign that said air for astronauts. I quickly went inside and filled my suit up and ran back to the spaceship to mum and dad. Then we set off to our next adventure.
