My Story Project: The Bird House (by Je-Nane)

Je-Nane’s story about two friends and a bird house: are they going to save their home?

Once upon a time there was a bird called Floppy. Floppy and his friend Cheepy lived together in a bird house. They would do everything together: play, dance, sing and lots more all day.

And every day they would play, dance and sing; all day in the bird house.

Until one day, while they were asleep, the bird house started to wobble and every time they moved it would wobble a bit more. Later that evening the bird house collapsed and causing Floppy and Cheepy to need to find a new home.


And because of that Floppy and Cheepy had to search high and low to find a new home. At last they found a tree where they met some squirrels. “Can we live in your tree?” said Floppy. But, the squirrels carried on searching for food.

And because of that Floppy and Cheepy had to search again to find a new home. At last, they found an ant digging. “Can we live in your tree?” said Cheepy, but the ant kept digging. They searched the whole forest again but still didn’t find anything.

Until finally they realised why the birdhouse dropped. “We were dancing too much!” said Cheepy. Floppy agreed. Then they went to their house and fixed it with the help of some other birds and the squirrels. They were happy to be back to their home.

And ever since the bird house collapsed, they have learnt to ask their friends for help instead of doing it alone, and that they shouldn’t dance too much.
