'Together We Grow: Together We Give' - Ezekiel 47 : 12

English

WALT: punctuate accurately

 

Do you remember the film we watched at the beginning of the week, 'The Wishgranter'?

 

You can watch is again by clicking here, if you would like. 

 

Today, we are thinking about the Wishgranter. He had a toolbox with lots of things in that people use to make wishes. Can you remember some of the things he had?

 

There was a dandelion, a wishbone and a shooting star.

 

Have a chat with your grown up, can you think of any other things that people wish on?

 

I came up with a wishing well, when we blow out candles on a birthday cake, a rainbow, a penny and an eyelash. 

 

I would like you to write a list poem about what you might find in a Wishgranter's toolbox. 

 

You will need to start the poem with:

 

In a Wishgranter's toolbox you might find...

 

Then write a list of all the things that you came up with. 

 

REMEMBER: you will need a comma between each item, apart from before the last item when you need to use and

 

It should also have a capital letter and the beginning, finger spaces and a full stop at the end. 

 

Try to use adjectives to make your list as interesting as possible. 

 

Here is my example:

 

In a Wishgranter's toolbox you might find an enormous birthday cake with bright candles just waiting to be blown out, a shiny penny ready to be picked up, a lost eyelash full of hope, an ancient wishing well glistening with magic and a bright, golden shooting star exploding through the sky.
