A Story for Carmella Alonso G

Once upon a time Jenny went to have a swim in a Rockpool river. When she was almost on the bank she saw some other people in it so she changed into a black swimming cossy behind a tree. She didn't jump into the deep part as most of the boys did but slowly walked in. When she was fully in and swimming she saw that the people were some big bullies and they were teasing a little kitten who was almost drowned. She quickly swam to the boys and punched one in the back. He dropped the kitten and she quickly swam away with it. When she got on to land she picked up her dry clothes and towel and ran back home still in her cossy. Her parents knew the cat was a stray because every body near them immediately gave their pets collars. Jenny was allowed to keep the kitten whom she named Olive and she still has her to this day.

Making Wizard Coins

Yesterday I was looking into my book of Wizardcraft and there's this page in it which says "Wizard Coins". Basically Wizard Coins are made of clay and you can put special magical signs on the coins and paint them and I was thinking maybe me and some of my friends can make other wizard things and dress up as wizards and we could sell some of the things like dragon's blood and magic carpets because there are many insructions for things like that in my book.

You can make these coins in any shape you want but in Harry Potter their wizard coins were just like normal coins with names like sickles, Knuts and Galleons. The coins that I made I did by rolling some clay out like whne youa re making cookines and then I cut the coins out using a bottle top. I also cut out some coins that were square by using a knife. The best part is decorating and deciding what patterns to make on them. Sometimes I make ridges on their sides.

Me and my sister made quite a lot of coins. Today when they will be properly dry we are going to paint them. Maybe we will use runic letters to write on them.
