Kitty's favourite memory below.
The Alchemist’s Letter
As I unlocked the door to the tiny ramshackled cottage there in front of me was something under a large dirty dusty sheet. As I pulled it back the dust lifted into the air and the sun through the cottage window glimmering on the magnificent contraption.
The intriguing mechanical device looked like something from Albert Einstein's laboratory. As I lifted the letter, the change in weight must have started the mechanism. The giant cogs that were decreasing in size, started to dash around in clockwise and anticlockwise directions. The gentle clink of glass against metal along with puffs of gases made it hiss like a rattlesnake. The machine sounded like a ticking clock.
The letter explained how the machine worked and how it gobbled up memories to power it. The more precious the memory,the more powerful the machine became. It separated the memory showing glimpses of the past. It’s colourful displays in each of the glass capsules showed a brief window into my father’s mind. The stunning waterfall cascaded down from one capsule to another.It was perfectly aligned with it having enough force to spin to another chamber of the device. It was like the machine was telling a story with each chapter in a different orb.
The machine showed sadness and the dark creature my father thought he had become.
As the melted gold collected in the small glass orb at the bottom, the tiny drop fell onto the old pocket watch. It turned to gold like magic, in an instant. After making the watch, coins and chains turn to gold, the machine started to shudder and shake and then it shattered and came to a grinding halt. My father had planned for this to happen so that I didn’t have to carry on with his lifetimes work. The pocket watch and small pile of treasure was like a final gift from my father.
Clear paragraphs that flow really well Zack.
Great description Poppy
Super editing Sam
If you take a moment to read these super pieces of writing you will see that each of your friends has worked very hard to describe the machine from 'The Alchemist's Letter' in their own individual way.
From editing to using similes all of them have shown excellent focus with their English work today. Good job year 5.
