Alfie and Will made this brilliant video of their version of ‘The Lighthouse’ animation in our Literacy lessons.
The comic I made is about a girl that gets a parcel one day.I made it on comic life and then I drew the pictures.I found out that you can change the colour of the boxes and bubbles. I liked putting the fonts on.But I found drawing the pictures hard and finding the right story.It was fun making my comic I liked it a lot.

A thin, towering lighthouse ,stood on top of a cliff, with a town underneath. One cold,dark night some people from the town were having a party and they all cheered when the bright,shiny light on the lighthouse came round. In the lighthouse lived a boring, old, grumpy and most miserable man who sat at a table all day writing letters to people in the town to be quiet.
But all of a sudden…. he heard a noise! So the old man ran up the twisted, spiral stairs and looked at the dusty light bulb to see what was wrong but suddenly…. he saw a ship heading towards the big waves crashing against the sharp, spikey rocks.
So he picked up the light and tripped over his tool kit. The light bulb smashed, there was little tiny pieces of glass all over the floor. Then something caught the old grumpy mans big, twinkley eyes. He ran downstairs to open the door….
…. All of the noisy but, nice pople from the town came with landterns to help and they all stood around the outside of the light house to help gide the ship away from the sharp, pionty rocks. The old man was as happy, pleased and glad as can be.
One night the lighthouse shone,towering on top of the cliff,the lighthouse sucked all dark from the sky.As the bar people cheered,the lighthouse went out.Back inside the lghthouse there was a old wrinklied,old man wearing a grey jacket,black trousers and formal shoes.He was writing a letter to the queen.Then he heard a CLANG,grabed his lantern and ran up the stairs.Startled,alarmed,terified he ran up the stairs.
When he made it to the top he saw the light had gone out.As he looked in it,he heard a ship heading for the rocks.He picked up the bulb,triped over his tools and the bulb smashed.He looked over his shoulder and saw lanterns…
The lovly,kind people came and helped the old man.The man ran down the stairs and opened his door.He let the people up in his lighthouse.The lanterns guided the ship away and they all cheared.
The end by Alfie
One day there was a rocky Light House, and there was a pub, inside the pub were some men and every time the light came past in their direction they cheered.The bright, glowing light was as bright as bright as the steaming, scorching sun.In the Light House the Light House keepers window was open and he heard the men every time, so he slammed the window shut!
The light went out for no random reason, the light of the Light House had gone off.The window flung open and a candle blew out.”Ugh”The light house keeper was shocked he got up out of his chair got his oil lamp and went upstairs.
Meanwhile at the pub the men were confused.”Wheres the light?”Shouted one “Why is the light gone black.”Shouted another “I want the light back.”Shouted the youngest one of them all, they were all confused!!
Back at the Light House the man had noticed the screw broke he looked in the hole and then he heard a horn sound “That ships gonna crash.” The keeper picked up the glass bulb he tripped up on his toolbox and broke the glass.The old man was so sad he could burst.
He ran down his spiral stairs and opened the door “Aah” All the men from the pub had brought lanterns. The next thing you know he was on top of the light house with about 1 thousand lanterns”Phew, that boat was about to crash into the rocks”
There was once a lighthouse which was shining the way for the ships, the light moved slowly at the ships as the lighthouse stood on a mountain cliff.
Inside the dull, grey lighthouse there was an old, wrinkly man who was concentrating on his homework with a candle to help him look properly. He jumped as he heard a strange noise and went to investigate what happened but he carried on. Suddenly, the window flew open and the candle blew out.
The old man was scared, frightened, worried, the old man was so worried that he thought he heard a ship coming closer & closer.
The old man rushed up the spiral stairs, up, up he went to see the clogs that made the noise. Afterwards, the old man didn’t fix the clogs but he knew what to do. The man picked up the light bulb, before he picked it up the old man put his tool box and tripped over it.
The man began to feel worried when he heard the sound of a ship coming closer to the ship coming closer to the cliff.
The old man rushed down the spiral stairs again and opened the doors. He could not believe his eyes, all the villagers had brought their oil lamp to use at the lighthouse and the ship was safe & sound.
Once upon a time there was a lighthouse. It was a very dull lighthouse which was a dark shade of grey, but the dazzling light that came of it was just amazing, and it was set on a cliff not so far away from a little town. Underneath the cliff was lots of pointy rocks.
Just over the cliff the small village stood and all you could see was oil lamps. You could just about make out the thin, wispy clouds in the dim, gloomy sky. All you could hear was the cheering of the people in the pub. They were having a party!!
In the lighthouse was the lighthouse keeper. The lighthouse keeper was grumbly and always moody. The old man was putting his hands over his ears, because the people in the town were cheering as the light when past.
“Oh,” he moaned as he shut the window, blocking out the sound. He went straight back to his writing. He was trying to finish when… BANG, BOOM, RUMBLE!! The window flew open blowing out the light. The man had a face full of fear. Towering above the sea,the lighthouse suddenly stopped spinning.
The old man ran up the stairs. He stopped to see that the cogs were broken. The old man fetched his tool box and went to the lightbulb, but the light was dimming by the second.
The old man dropped his toolbox to get a better look, unfortunately he tripped on his tool box and knocked one the lightbulb case smashing it to pieces. The man looked as worried as a little girl running a way from a bear.He thought to himself, what am I going to do.
The old man was so worried and scared that his last hope was the villagers. He pulled open the door and stopped to see that they all had lanterns. The old man led all the people onto the cliff and told them to shine the lanterns. They all guided the ship to safety. The man smiled … for once!
Once opoun a time here was a lighthouse keeper and the bright, yellow light sparkled in the the dark, gloomy sky.Underneght the lighthouse was blue, crashing waves and they where bashing against the sharp, jaggered rocks.The rocks where as sharp as spikes.There was a cliff and on top of the cliff was a lighthouse .Towering on top of the high cliff, the lighthouse was positioned still.The lighthouse was a stone lighthouse.The light was as bright as the sun.The long, bright light shone over the small, light houses.The people in the houses where partying.Spinning around the town, the light shined brightly.
The man was writing a letter.The papers where scattered around her desk like cows in a field.The man got grumpy and shut the window tightly.The dark, gloomy walls where around the white, scattered papers.Then the people stopped cheering and then the man heard a noise.Then the window opened and the man saw there was no dazzling light shinning outside and his candel went out.The man started to have a look what the matter and then he fell over and went face first.Then the man stood up with his lantern.
The man rushed up stairs.He was looking into the dark with a worried face.The man wore a dim, blue hat that was as dark as the sea and a marky brown jacket.Anxouis, concered, troubled the man hurried up the stairs.When the man got to the he saw there was know bulb he saw that there was no bulb so he lifted it up and tripped over his tool box and broke it!The man saw the ship was coming and ran down his spiral staircase.He opened the door and saw the whole town had brought lanterns to show the ship the way.The the man felt so glad.The end!
Once there was a lighthouse on top of a cliff. The lighthouse was tall and grey it was a very murky place. The cliff was near a small village. The village had small buildings. The small, boring village looked up at the tall,stoney lighthouse.
The villagers were all very very jolly ,but the light house keeper was not. the light house keeper was working on his desk and slammed his window shut. Suddenly the light went out , the window opened and the candle went out. The man was about to go up when he tripped over his chair.
The man was rushing up the stair cais like a cheater. It only took a minute to go up but it must have made his legs ache.He got to the top and was staring at the masive cogs that turned the light. The old, grumpy man looked at the murky, aged light
The lighthouse keeper dropped the light after he tripped over his tool box . Suddenly the light house keper heard a boat ! The light house keeper was uneasy and started to run down the stairs . He opened the door and saw some villagers.The villagers went in the light house and made the boat turn because of the lanterns. THE END
