This week was our Halloween special which means scary stories, scarier ‘nick’ names and Halloween cakes and biscuits. There were twelve tales in all and you’ll find them all below the break!
This Week’s Stories
The stories were selected by a random process by pulling names out of the Pumpkin of Peril (an orange bucket with a picture of a pumpkin on the side of it Stephen had purchased in Sainsburys for 50p). This is the order the names were drawn out:
- Bonfire on Halloween by Norman
- Halloween Night by Alison
- The Scream by Susi
- Booeyman Blues by Elizabeth
- Senga’s Halloween (narrated by you know who!) by Eric
- Halloween, a poem by Chris
- Blood Sucking Boss by Stephen
- Remember Remember by Jenifer
- Hippy Halloween by Winnie
- Dear Brother Ghost by Shelby
- To Be or Not To Be by Ian
- Halloween Tale by Margaret
