Today we have read Ten Things Found in a Wizard’s Pocket. We made up a class version to go with it. Which one do you prefer? Can you write your own?

Ten Things Found in a Wizard’s Pocket.


A dark night.

Some words that nobody could ever spell.

A glass of water full to the top.

A large elephant.

A vest made from spiders’ webs.

A handkerchief the size of a car park.

A bill from the wand shop.

A bucket full of stars and planets, to mix with the dark night.

A bag of magic mints you can suck for ever.

A snoring rabbit.

Ian McMillan Original Version


Ten Things Found in a Wizard’s Pocket.


A handful of nasty, gooey sweets.

A massive wand.

A table with space enough for 20.

A coach from a speeding train.

A large black and white spotty dog.

A monkey that’s bigger than a tree.

A giant, extendable ruler.

A dollop of blue slush puppy.

A TV covered in cobwebs.

A colossal, beating sun.

    Wow! Your version of the poem is amazing and your adjectives are very impressive! I can’t wait to show my Year 2 children and perhaps see if they can write their version too. Would your class be interested in seeing their version?
