Paul Cookson Magical Creature Poem

Magical Potion Poem

9 purple crystal eyes,

Moving looking thinking watching.

1 pink majestic horn,

Sparkling shimmering shining pointing.

10 blue scruffy nails,

Scratching bending moving flinching.

5 green smelly toes,

Kicking wriggling squirming stinking.



Sewing Magical puppets

In Year 3 we have been learning how to sew to create our very own magical puppets.
