16 You have been given strips of a passage, which you may recognise from Cinderella. Arrange the strips into the correct order, so that the passage can be read properly.

17 Cinderella’s fairy godmother only just touched her with her wand, and at the same instant, her clothes were turned into cloth of gold and silver, all studded with beautiful jewels. This done, she gave her a pair of glass slippers, the prettiest in the whole world. So Cinderella, dress in all her finery, got into the coach. Then her godmother warned her not to stay out after midnight, telling her at the same time that if she stayed one moment longer, the coach would be a pumpkin again. The horses would turn back into mice, the coachman would become a rat and the footmen lizards. Her clothes would turn back into the rags she had been wearing before.

18 The following three-letter groups form part of six letter words. For, instance, the word design can be though of in two halves, DES IGN. Each of the following three-letter ‘words’ can be paired up with another to make a six-letter word. See how many of the 24 six-letter words you can make. Group 1Group 2

49 Each member of the class (or the teacher) shouts out a letter. Every member of the class then fits this letter into their grid. You can choose which square it goes into but it must fit into a square, but once placed it must stay in that square. The idea is to make as many words as you can. You get 10 points for 5 letter words, 5 points for four letter words and 3 points for three letter words. You get no points for two or one lettered words. Whoever has the most points wins the game. Words can be made either across or down. Proper nouns are not allowed

51 In this game the teacher will give you seven letters. The teacher will then give you 4 categories. The idea of the game is for you to come up with a word for each category starting with each letter. For instance, if the teacher says the letters M, A, T, C, H, E and S you write then across the top of your page or grid. Then if the teacher says rivers, countries, animals and boy’s names, you write them down the side of your page or grid. You now need to come up with a word beginning with that letter in each category. For example:MATCHESRiverMurrayAmazonThamesCongoHudsonElbeSeine CountryMaltaAngolaTurkeyCanadaHungaryEgyptSpain AnimalMonkeyApeTigerCatHorseElephantSkunk B Name MikeAdamTonyCarlHarryEvanSteve

52 This is a game where the teacher will pick a category and you have to think of a word related to this category. The next person then has to think of a word that begins with the last letter of the previous word. You are out of the game if you take more than 10 seconds to think of a word You also lose if you repeat a previous word. You can win the game by either being the last person left Or by saying the first word that the chain started with. So you have to be careful not to end a word with the same letter that the first word began with. The category is:
