Wish


When a star is born

They possess a gift or two

One of them is this

They have the power to make a wish come true

When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are

Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do

Fate is kind

She brings to those who love

The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue

Fate steps in and sees you through

When you wish upon a star

Your dreams come true

When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are

Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do

Fate is kind

She brings to those who love

The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue

Fate steps in and sees you through

When you wish upon a star

Your dreams come true
While this song is beautiful and sweet..I feel that JK Rowling actually has a better measure of life ‘It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live’.  

The Little Mermaid

This is a Disney classic. Growing up I wished I was a mermaid so that I could explore the ocean just like  Ariel. It is still a favourite of mine Рafter all this time Рand now it is also a favourite of my students. They enjoy the brightly coloured animations, the songs and  the music, and of course the story of young love.

Monsters Inc.

My nephew who just turned one, adores this story. I found it an amusing movie and my students have also enjoyed watching it during their break times. We have read the Disney Story Book of this tale as well – it is fun. I think they mainly enjoy my silly voices and pretend growls! (lots of giggles, but maybe at me lol)

 

I have attached a template that I drew that can be used for art and craft activities.

RIP Alan Rickman

This incredible actor bought one of the most complex characters to life.. To the point where my imagination actually pictures Rickman’s face and voice whenever I think of Professor Snape. Of course he was brillant with many other roles that he portrayed over his career but he will always be Snape to me.. And I couldn’t bestow a higher compliment. May he rest in peace.
