“When I Grow Up”

When I grow up I would like to be a writer, writing stories to make children’s lives brighter.               

When I grow up I would like to be a vet, helping lots of different pets.

When I grow up I would like to be an astronaut going on missions through the stars and seeing if there is life on Mars.

When I grow up I would like to be an artist drawing and painting and making masterpieces.               

When I grow up I would like to be a nurse helping hurt people with different cures.

 Holly Goode-Jones Yr 3

All the work was exhibited in the Schools Arts Marquee on the Festival Field over the BIG FREE weekend Saturday 15th July – Sunday 16th July.
