This weeks story is called ‘ The Magical Things On The Beach’!

Eventually after there stupid argument they went on the beach clean. On the beach clean there were a bunch of people! All the guys on the beach clean were talking about how important it is to clean the beach but all Sandy could say was

‘Tree huggers’

But her mum was taking it all in with great detail. Then one of the organisers said

‘And if you find something you like feel free to take it home with you’

that made Sandy giggle !Anyway she got on with cleaning the beach. As she was cleaning she was still complaining to her mum even though it wasn’t as bad as she expected then Sandy pulled out a beautiful black bag so she decided to bring it home and wash it the next day she brought it into school and to her   suprize all of the popular kids came over to her and were talking to her about her bag

‘Oh my God is that a Jack Dono bag’

Sandy shyly answered

‘yes it is’

‘Oh my God they’re brand-new how do you have one?’

Sandy was too embarrassed to say that she found it on a beach clean so she just said ‘How do you not have it!’

And surprisingly that work the next day she went on another beach clean and she found a beautiful ripped dress so she brought it home washed it and sowed it up! Then she went in the next day wearing it and again everyone was mesmerised by it. later that week the new phone came out and everyone had it except for Sandy. So for a week Sandy went down on the beach cleans looking for a phone but she couldn’t find one then she found what looks like an unopened bottle of lemonade so she drank it………….She was very sick then because it turned out to be a mix of seawater and sand!!!!! Then one of the other children on the beach clean said that she was very impressed

‘What with?’

Sandy replied ‘Well you have been upcycling haven’t you ‘

Upcycling?

Sandy said very confused Then the new girl said

‘Up cycling is where you give something older or broken a new life like you did with the ripped dress and that dirty bag’

‘No I didn’t I just found it on this magical beach which implies all the magical new things ‘

Don’t be ridiculous you’ve been up cycling all the time

‘That’s why I didn’t find a magical phone’

‘You didn’t really think the beach was magical did you’

‘Well yeah I did because I’ve  been finding incredible thingsthat arn’t even in shops yet’

Thats because all of the fashion companies leave all the things they don’t want even if it is only a bit broken on the beach!

So now Sandy understood everything but then she realised one thing, she actually was starting to enjoy beac cleaning!!!! So the next day Sandy went into school and she told everyone the truth and  again to her surprise everyone thought she wasn’t weird for going on beach cleans they actually thought it was really cool and wanted to go on one as well so from that day forwad they all went on beah cleans and would upcycle what ever they found  and Sandy never felt alone again! But now she has  found out her mum is thinking about becoming a vegetarian ….hope she doesn’t pull her into this one!!!!!
