Story starter!

The Patronus Charm is difficult to produce, and many witches and wizards struggle to produce a full Patronus: a guardian which generally takes the form of the animal with whom they share the deepest affinity. For Severus Snape however, a wizard trained and experienced in the Dark Arts, it was easy.

He felt a slight tingle from the end of his wand as he swished it in a smooth, subtle arc. A jet of flawless, pale-white light danced from its tip, and the Patronus began to take form in front of him…

Sentence challenge!

Can you identify all of the verbs in the following sentences?

Professor Snape flicked his wand and a stream of bright light shone into the night. A bright, white doe appeared in front of him. He smiled as the doe danced across the forest, but began to frown when he saw the Dementor approaching.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

Professor Snape stood in the forest. It was dark. He waved his wand. A bright light came from it.
