“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
