Rosie, Ross, Fargal and Mac, P4, tell Julia Belgutay what they would do if they could do magic

Rosie: I would probably like to make this big funfair in the playground. I would have the whole school come.

Mac: I would probably make the school be made out of chocolate.

Rosie: But then if it rained it would melt. No, if the sun came.

Ross: I would make a massive house of ice-cream. I would make it in the winter because then it would melt in the summer. And I would have a Jacuzzi.

Mac: A swimming pool!

Ross: And I would have orange juice everywhere.

Fargal: That would be so sticky. How about Vimto? I'm mad about Vimto. I would make a Vimto swimming pool.

Ross: It would all be stuck to you and you would be yellow.

Fargal: Vimto is purple.

Rosie: I have always wanted to fly. Once when I was small I thought maybe I could fly, and I dived from my bed.

Mac: I would probably make myself invisible, say I'm going to the toilet and tip all the teacher's stuff out of her bag. Then I would come back and say: "What have I missed?"

Ross: You know the mascots? I would make millions of them and they could go alive and do whatever I want them to do. That would be cool.

Rosie: I would probably get all the teachers together, put blindfolds on them, and then get a huge big bucket of hot, sticky, melted chocolate and pour it all over them.

Fargal: Why do we have to do that to the teachers? Why can't we eat it?

Mac: I would have my own mansion with my own Jacuzzi, my own swimming pool, my own butler, my own servant and my own limo and driver.

Fargal: Limos are a waste. I would have a Ferrari.

Mac: And then somebody pays for everything for me. They pay for everything from my vaults.

Ross: I would have all the superstars, and they would give me lots of money so I can buy lots of things.

Fargal: I would be able to turn into anything in the world that I wanted to. I could make up my own stuff and put wings on me and stuff.

Rosie: I would like a baby pygmy hippo. It's my favourite animal.

Mac: If I had magic, I would make money disappear by clicking my fingers. No. Appear.

Rosie: I would go to the Queen and the princess every day and they would give me, like, loads of money.

Ross: I would go into the future.

Mac: But if you went into the future, it would change your past and something terrible will happen.
