PM BRUSHES OFF CLAIMS
HIS DITHERING COST LIVES

NICE that Bozo can brush off a

Wonder if he knows his Jackson

council housing waiting
lists could double by next
year, officials have warned.
The Local Government Association
wants the Government to use
this month’s spending review to give
councils the funding to build 100,000
social rent homes a year.
LGA spokesman Councillor David
Renard said: “We are concerned that
as life returns to normal there could
be an increase in homelessness.
“Giving councils the powers and
resources to build 100,000 social
homes for rent each year, would not
only help to reduce homelessness
but deliver a third of the
Government’s housing target.”
In a report commissioned by the
LGA, which represents councils in
England and Wales, one in 10 households
in need of housing are stuck on
council waiting lists for more than
five years, according to Government
figures released in March.
The research warned that waiting
lists could rise to 2.1million, while it
revealed that building new social
rent homes would deliver the equivalent
of £24.5billion over 30 years.
Mr Renard added: “There is a desperate
need to build more social
housing in this country.”

Sorry seems to be
the hardest word
TOLD YOU: Cummings weighed in
Dominic “Knobo” Cummings has branded
Boris Johnson a “joke” after some of his
criticisms of the Government were proven
in a damning report on Covid.
The report by cross-party MPs on the
Science and Technology Committee and
the Health and Social Care Committee said
the UK’s preparation for a pandemic was
too focused on flu, while ministers waited
too long to push through lockdown measures
in early 2020.
Cummings, the PM’s former adviser, said:
“The Government system for dealing with
crises is a disaster, as I wrote in 2019.”
He added: “The system was bad for many
years before Covid.
“Me and others put into place work to try
and improve the system in 2020 after the
first wave, unfortunately the Prime Minister
– being the joke that he is – has not pushed
that work through.
“Now we have a joke Prime Minister and
a joke leader of the Labour Party and we obviously
need a new political system.”
Minister for the Cabinet Office Stephen
Barclay defended the Government, saying
that there had not been “groupthink” on
handling the pandemic.
He later admitted he had not yet read the
report from the select committees.
WINDY weather speeds up the spread of
Covid, according to new research.
Gusts blowing in the same direction as a
cough increase transmission of the virus.
People should wear masks outside, especially
if it’s breezy, say scientists.
Professsor Amit Agrawal of the Indian
Institute of Technology said: “The study is
significant in that it points to the increased
infection risk that coughing in the same direction
as the wind could bring about.
“Based on the results, we recommend
wearing masks outdoors, particularly in
Other guidelines, such as coughing in an
elbow or turning the face away, should also
be followed when socialising in the open air.
The analysis found even a light breeze of
about 5mph extends effective social distancing
by around a fifth.
Depending on cough strength, it lengthens
from three to six feet to 3.6 to 7.2 feet.
Fear for recovery
HOPES that the UK’s economy will make a
swift recovery have been dented.
The International Monetary Fund downgraded
its outlook for the UK, while warning that
developing countries are being left behind.
The IMF expects UK output to grow by
6.8% in 2021, down from a previous
estimate of 7%.
Developing countries were also downgraded,
due to the pandemic impact.
“The dangerous divergence in economic
prospects across countries
remains a concern,” said chief

Mr Hunt added: “There was a

‘GIRLY’ TOYS MAKE
BOYS FEAR BULLIES
by ETHAN BLACKSHAW
LEGO is to end “gender
stereotyping” of its toys
because boys fear they
will be mocked if they
play with girls’ products.
Bosses said they want to
make their toys “more inclusive”
from now on.
They commissioned a study
which revealed 71% of boys
feared they would be teased
and made fun of if they played
with “girls’ toys”.
The report by the Geena
Davis Institute found boys
aged six to 14 are pushed towards
sport, science, technology,
engineering and maths
activities, while girls are encouraged
dressing up and baking.
Institute chief Madeline Di
Nonno said: “Behaviours associated
with men are valued
more highly in society.
“Until societies recognise
behaviours and activities typically
associated with women
are as valuable or important,
parents and children will be
tentative to embrace them.”
LEGO – which had sales of
£4.95billion last year – has not
yet detailed the changes.
The firm’s Julia Goldin said:
“We’re working hard to make
LEGO more inclusive.
“We’re testing everything
on boys and girls and including
more female role models.”

SICK ABUSE: Paedophile Savile
is ‘too soon’
by Peter Dyke
A BBC chief has defended the
channel for making a drama about
pervert Jimmy Savile.
Critics say it is still too soon to make a
show about the paedophile Jim’ll Fix It
host, whose sick antics came to light following
his death aged 84 in 2011.
He is now believed to have sexually
abused as many as 500 young people.
BBC head of drama Piers Wenger said
the series – starring Steve Coogan as the
shamed presenter and DJ – would be “sensitive”
to his victims and their families, who
they had worked with on the story.
He said: “It is a decade since Savile died
and it will be a decade next year since his
behaviour first came into the public eye.
“Our primary intention is to give a voice
to the victims and to tell their
stories sensitively and with
the utmost respect.
“The drama was
written after extensive
many of the survivors
of Savile are involved
in its making.”
Meanwhile others SHOW ROLE:
slammed the BBC for Coogan
being the station to make
the show since it was the former
“home” of Top Of The Pops and Jim’ll Fix It
– the shows the charity fundraiser used as a
hunting ground for victims.
But Wenger added: “I think there are still
many important questions that need to be
answered about Savile and many questions
we are asking of ourselves through
that drama. So I think it is incredibly important
that the BBC do tell that story.
“I have yet to see a documentary really
answer the question – how did this happen?
How was he able to render his victims
so powerless and without a voice for so
long and how was he able to hide in plain
sight within institutions – not just the BBC?
“The BBC will be a part of it because that
was a part of Savile’s story. There is no getting
away from it, nor would we want to.”

TELLING someone to “grow up” is

Hairdresser Jasmine Stunell sued her

made by a colleague when she was just 16.
An employment tribunal heard she was
also told “pull yourself together”.
The panel said: “The tribunal does not
find the words ‘grow up’ and ‘pull yourself
together’ are related to age and can be
said to anyone and particularly to someone
older who is acting in a childish way.”
Ms Stunell claimed the incidents hap-

Employment Judge Anne Martin dismissed
her claims of age discrimination

His baby hopes were dashed.

SHE might look like any other 23-yearold
– but Frankie Castanea is a practising
witch who casts spells and even hexes
wrongdoers in the name of justice.
She got into witchcraft from around the age of
16, and also worships the gods Diana and Hades
who she says send animals to follow her as signs.
Just don’t expect this very modern “witchtokker”
– who boasts more than a million followers
on TikTok – to be wearing a pointy hat.
Frankie says: “I define being a witch as creating
change in your own life and the community
around you. The very basic way to create change is
spells, but it goes a lot further beyond that.
“It’s caring for other people in the community
and wanting to make change in the best way.
“There’s a very stereotypical idea of what a witch
looks like – The Witches by Roald Dahl is a very
good example of that.
“They are still seen as something that is other
or not really acceptable to society.
“A lot of people operate off those stereotypes
– not that it’s normal people using
magic in a very practical way.”
Frankie uses spells for everything
from healing to encouraging positivity
and self-love, which involve combining
herbs and other materials with candles
and focusing on your desired outcome.
“I usually start with my intent,” she says.
“What I need done. So let’s say I need to protect
myself or a friend or I need to get focused
on something, I start there. Then I correlate that
intention to the type of herbs I need.
“I like doing candle spells so I will correlate my
intention to a candle colour and from there I’ll create
a sigil or chant, write the sigil on the candle or
place herbs around the candle and let it burn.”
Frankie admits she has performed hexes to
punish those who do harm to her clients.
“My baneful magic is saved for situations where
there’s a power dynamic that needs to be fixed,”
she says. “A lot of times, all they need is this person’s
energy staying away from them or for a bad
person to feel regret or guilt.
“That’s a very basic binding spell and a banishing.
When a lot of people think about hexes, they
think really bad stuff is going to happen.
“It’s very rare – I’ve only done it a couple of
times where the person was like, ‘I really want this’.
“A hex will seal them into something, stopping
them from moving towards that individual.

“I won’t disclose all the ingredients
I use but it can be

Frankie did try to curse
someone as a teenager but it
“Doing hexes for petty reasons
to me is never a good
idea from my own experience,”
“It was this little curse on
someone I felt treated me
badly. I hung it outside my
window – mistake number
one – and one day I opened
the window and it fell off and
rolled directly into the gutter.
“It stayed there for about
“There was a lot of bad energy
which stuck to the house
but things started to get better
once we removed it.”
Frankie, who lives in
Colorado in the US, worships
the Roman goddess Diana and
the Greek god Hades, and will
make offerings for protection.
“They both have an altar by
my window,” she adds. “I feel their presence.
“Not often because they’re busy, but when I
pray to them – there’s a level of presence.
“The other way they show up is with animals –
Diana will send me stags, sometimes three crows.
“I get followed around by a lot of animals –
hawks are frequent.”
Frankie believes anyone can become a witch
and she’s written a manual – Spells For Change –
showing how to follow in her footsteps.
The book covers everything from constructing
spells, cleansing and protecting yourself and your
home, to banishing unwanted energy, binding
those who do harm and the properties of various
crystals and herbs.
She says: “If you feel called to it, if you’re interested
in it, that’s enough of a reason to study it.
“I want people to read this book and have something
that helps them create a foundation or
shows them a new perspective.“
So how much power can a modern witch wield?
Can they resurrect people from the dead – as in
the Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman film
Practical Magic – or influence world events?
Frankie says: “I’m sure there’s a witch somewhere
that says they have the ability to – whether
they can or can’t is not my business.
“I am someone who believes the rules of our
world, science and physics, still apply to witchcraft
so it would be very difficult to raise something
from the dead.
“In the past there’s been spells towards elections
and influencing votes.
“That’s very difficult and complicated and
there’s a lot of ways it could go wrong.
“Say you are influencing a politician – you have
to influence everyone around that politician as
well. That’s a lot.”

year. Due to Covid restrictions on set, producers
claimed it made life easier to shoot
shorter eps and helped them maintain their
quota of four shows a week.
However, some fans were not pleased
with this and it didn’t help that in the
summer the show got moved around the
schedules due to the BBC’s coverage of Euro
2020 and the Olympics.
As a result overnight audience figures
have slipped and earlier this year they fell to
a record low of 1.9million.
BBC drama boss Piers Wenger vowed: “It
is absolutely our intention for EastEnders to
return to its original running time and that
is something we are working on and are
“It is not going to happen overnight.
I think it will be at the very latest 2022.”
On the topic of 2021 viewing
figures, he added: “It being
scheduled off-junction and it not
being the full halfhour
has impacted its
“It has been particularly
badly hit on linear
but it is still a huge
show for iPlayer so the
picture isn’t quite as
harsh as it looks when you
just look at the overnights.”

She refused to accept the

accidental death and embarked
on a 20-year mission alongside
other parents and relatives to
prove their 96 loved ones had
been unlawfully killed.

The complete hard

SPINS AT 100 RPM
• Two rotating heads spin away mess and germs – as you
move Floating Mop the two spinning heads do the hard work for
you. It’s a cleaning powerhouse!
• 100 RPM of cleaning power – each head spins at 100 RPM,
that’s like scrubbing your floor one hundred times a minute, but
without the backbreaking work.
• Use your favourite detergent, or just use water – there’s no
need to buy special detergent, simply spray on your favourite
cleaning spray or just use water and Floating Mop does the rest
• Microfibre Pads loosen, lift and lock in dirt – the reusable,
super-absorbent microfibre pads have thousands of tiny
cleaning fibres that lock in dirt instead of spreading it around
• Scouring Pads make tougher jobs easy – make light work
of stubborn messes with the tougher, more abrasive Scouring
• Make your floors sparkle with the Polishing Pads – once
you’ve cleaned them you can buff your floors up to a beautiful
shine in seconds!
Well, I say “eager”…

★boomed as millions of Brits slash their
intake for the sake of their health.
And many are taking part in Macmillan’s
Sober October campaign – ditching tipples
for a month – with studies showing that
quitting for this length of time can help
reduce overall consumption. But could
you give up the booze completely?
Here Eurosport TV presenter and
★mum-of-two Orla Chennaoui, 41, tells
JAMES MOORE how she did it, plus we
reveal some top tips for cutting down…
Why did you want to
give up alcohol?
“I used to love a glass or two
of white wine mostly, over
dinner with family or friends
or on a night out.
“But I was increasingly
feeling like it was robbing me
of my energy and motivation
the next day.
“Because it’s so expected
and accepted to have alcohol
in social company, it’s
a very difficult cycle to
What was the final
“Having my daughter
prompted me to stop.
“I never suffered
hangovers until I went
“I found my body had
chemically changed, so
that wasn’t as much fun
“I’m very much an all or
“I still wanted to work as
hard as I had done before
becoming a mum, so I realised
that stopping drinking
was my best chance of having
the energy I needed to do
“With my personality type I
found it easier to take alcohol
out of the equation entirely.”
What benefits have
“In the short term it helped
me sleep much better, which
really helped with my general
mood and anxiety.
“I’ve had anxiety for as long
as I can remember but I didn’t
realise how much alcohol was
affecting it until I stopped.
“My skin cleared up almost
immediately. My eyes became
“I lost weight around my
middle that I hadn’t been
trying to shift – and I became
leaner. I look back at photos of
my drinking days now and I
look totally different. My face
was really puffy and bloated
and that’s gone now.”
Has it helped you
“I exercise so much more now
for a number of reasons. One
is that I have more energy, but
also I have more time.
“I can set my alarm for
before the kids wake in the
morning to do some cold-
water swimming with friends,
because I’m not dying in bed
from the night before.”
What practical tips do
you have for others?
“Work out your reason for
wanting to stop or cut back,
write it down and keep
coming back to it.
“It takes a lot of effort to
break a habit that is so deeply
ingrained in society, so don’t
expect this to happen by
accident. It will take effort, but
it is worth it 100 times over.”
What substitutes do you
“Eisberg wine is my main
go-to when it comes to alcohol-free
options. It’s hard to
beat their sparkling white or
rose for a special occasion.
Sometimes I like tonic water,
especially a flavoured one.
If I’m on a wild night out I
might indulge in a Red Bull.”

FIVE TIPS TO CUT DOWN
1. Numbers game: Choose lowerstrength
alcohol and alternate booze
with water and soft drinks.
2. Take a break: Try and have two to
three days off alcohol during the week.
Have a pact with a partner.
3. Change it up: Rather than heading to
the boozer, do something different like
going to the cinema.
4. Trick treats: Studies say we drink
less from straight tall glasses than
curved, short and wide ones.
5. Size matters: Choose bottles rather
than pints... or smaller glasses of wine.

How has it affected your
ability to socialise?
“We all use alcohol to make
socialising easier, less daunting
or more fun, so it can be
terrifying to think of going into
certain situations without it.
“The trick for me was realising
I wasn’t the only one.
“Almost every person feels
exactly the same and is relying
on alcohol in the same way.
“When that penny drops,
you realise you’re not strange
for finding it hard to go out
and meet new people – or
even old friends – without a

BUICK BANG IN
by CHRIS GOULDING
WILLIAM BUICK clawed back Oisin
Murphy’s lead to four winners for the
jockeys’ championship after riding a
sparking treble at Leicester yesterday.
Buick, 33, on the mark with Parlando,
Kentucky Kitten and Rhythm N Rock, is
gunning for his first title which should
go all the way to the wire at Ascot on
Saturday’s Qipco Champions’ Day.
Murphy, 26, aiming for his third
consecutive title, did not
leave Leicester empty
handed after partnering
Able Kane to victory.
But he must have
thought he had two in
the bag after looking set
for victory on Future
King in the finale before
Buick chinned him.
The pair go head-to-head at
Nottingham today where Murphy has
six rides and Buick (above) eight.
Buick is now 7-4 from 2-1 with Paddy
Power and Murphy 4-9 from 4-11.
Paddy Power’s Paul Binfield said:
“That was a big day for William and he
has a better book of rides tomorrow.
“Punters have really been getting
behind him today and we have seen 10
times more bets for him than Oisin.”

Brackets after the racecard number indicate the draw in
Flat races. In the form figures, an ‘L’ indicates the horse
finished in last place and a # indicates Bumper form.
Figures in brackets after each horse’s name indicate the
number of days since the horse last ran. (C) indicates a
course winner, (D) indicates a winner over the same
distance as today’s race. (B) or (V) indicates that the horse
wears blinkers or a visor. (T) indicates that the horse wears
a tongue strap. * indicates if wearing blinkers or visor for
first time. (P) indicates that the horse is wearing a Cheek
Piece. (BF) stands for beaten favourite. (F) is winner on firm
going, (G) on good going, (S) on soft going and (A) on the
all weather. The figures in the last column after the jockey’s
name is an exclusive Clockform rating giving a guide to the
horse’s chance. The highest figure denotes the top rated,
which is also pinpointed by a ★.

Will Pryce and

Will’s ready to cap
by GARETH WALKER
WILL PRYCE hoped to play “one or
two” Super League matches this
season – on Friday he will line up for
England Knights touted as a possible
World Cup selection for 2022.
The Huddersfield teenager exploded on to the
scene this year, scoring six tries in 13 appearances
after making his debut against Catalans in July.
His rapid rise has seen him called
into the squad to face Jamaica for
Jordan Turner’s testimonial
match at Castleford and
Pryce, 18, admits it’s a
scenario he could not
have imagined at the start
of the campaign.
“I just wanted to play
one or two Super League
games and get my confidence
up,” he said.
“But the trust that Watto (Giants
coach Ian Watson) put in me at the
start of the year has really helped me
out and I’ve managed to put myself
out there and get this opportunity.
“I’m more than grateful for it and I
wasn’t expecting it. Watto and Luke
Robinson have both really helped me
with video sessions, studying and teaching
me game management.
“This has been my dream since I was
three or four watching my dad play.”
Mention of dad Leon provides a
direct link with his current environment.
He was a team-mate of Knights
coaches Paul Anderson and Paul
Sculthorpe when St Helens won the
treble in 2006.
Pryce added: “My dad used to
take me to training and all the other
kids would be there. It’s deja vu now
with them coaching me.
“They were a really close-knit group
back then and ‘Baloo’ (Anderson) played
with my dad at Bradford as well. He’s been
really good with me and all the boys.
“It’s a good group and him and Scully are able
to talk to us on a personal level which is brilliant
for us as players. Then when it’s time to go out on
to the field and switch on, we understand the
professionalism we have to have. Our main
focus is to get the job done on Friday night.”
Jamaica, who have qualified for the World
Cup for the first time, have named a strong
squad including Pryce’s clubmates
Ashton Golding and Michael Lawrence.

Rush plea to Salah
Mo Salah has been
urged to commit to Liverpool
for the rest of his
career by Anfield legend Ian
Rush – and take a shot at his
all-time goalscoring record.
Salah, who has netted 134 times in 212
appearances for the club, is stalling over
an extension to his contract which expires
in the summer of 2023.
But Rush says Liverpool must tie down a
player who he rates as currently the best
footballer on the planet.
“If you are Jurgen Klopp you want him
to sign,” said Rush. “Any club in the world
would be interested in Mo Salah at the
moment. I want him at Liverpool for the
next four or five years. Hopefully there is a
deal to be done.
“He is a legend anyway because he has

he can go on to even better things. For me
he is the best player in the world.

Liverpool will have to make Salah
the highest-paid player at the club
by some distance if they want
to keep him but Rush does
not see that as an issue.
“Players do talk about
it – it’s only human – but

WALES HERO IS HIT AND MISS
kief it clean
Kieffer scores his
seventh Wales goal

WALES’ match-winner Kieffer
Moore admits he must
change his game after being
booked for a third straight
The 6ft 5in Cardiff frontman will
now miss the Red Dragons’ crucial
penultimate World Cup qualifier at
home to Belarus next month.
Moore, who made his international
debut in 2019, took his tally for Wales to
seven after scoring the only goal in
Estonia on Monday night.
But he has more yellow cards after
amassing nine in 23 appearances.
He has often attracted unwanted
attention from referees for his dominant
aerial style, which saw him also
go in the book in the 2-2 draw in the
Czech Republic last week.
In a bid to avoid scrutiny from referees,
Moore is now even trying to head
the ball without using his arms for

new faces in during the

still stick to their plan.
He said: “We
have a strategy
set out. We are
not going to win
our players every year.
“That’s not the way we
are going to be successful.
“But there is nobody
who is happy at this point
without winning a game.”
Moore’s trying hard
to avoid yellow peril
leverage. “It is frustrating,” he said. “It is
not ideal but it is down to me to adapt
and not get myself in these situations.
“In internationals, referees never
really give you too much leeway. It is
about adapting to that.
“I am super-conscious every time I
go for an aerial challenge and head it.
“I just get my body there and mentally
try not to do too much. It does take
some getting used to.”
Moore was even penalised after a
second-half clash in Tallinn which left
him with a bloodied nose and later saw
him subbed with blurred vision.
He claims he is often unsure why he
even gets cautions. Asked why he received
his latest yellow card, Moore
said: “I couldn’t tell you.
“I put my arms by my side. You
would have to ask the ref. I know they
will be having words on the side when
these challenges are happening.”
Moore’s absence against Belarus will
at least be offset by skipper Gareth
Bale’s anticipated return from a hamstring
Wales need four points from their
final two games to clinch second spot in
Group E and a better play-off draw.
Moore, who will be eligible to play
against Belgium in their final game,
added: “We have missed Gaz this camp.
He is our talisman and we can’t wait
to have him back. He brings a massive
impetus into our team.”
Wales successfully deployed a 3-5-2
formation in Prague and Tallinn but
boss Rob Page admits he may change it
next month to utilise Bale, who tends to
play on the right in a 4-2-3-1 shape.
Page said: “I have been pleased with
it for this camp but it might be different
for the next one.
“You want all your players fit and
then you pick a formation and a team
which you think is going to give you
your best chance to win.”

Scotland were held and outplayed

Then Odmar Faero went close

leading lights failed their
audition on a miserable
night at Wembley.
The England boss has long
been typecast as a negative,
safety-first manager who packs his
team with defensive players.
But he went gung-ho against
Hungary and only narrowly escaped
a humiliating defeat, with paper
planes floating down from the stands
by the end.
Southgate packed his side with as
much attacking talent as he could
find but they put in one of their
worst performances in months.
Shambolic at times, England were
repeatedly in danger of being overrun
in midfield, conceding a 24th-minute
penalty scored by Roland Sallai.

well with the England coaching staff.
Southgate’s No.2 Steve Holland even
mocked the idea as “fantasy football”
– but there they all were last night.
To be fair to him, the fantasy did
not match the reality early doors as
England kept giving the ball away
and allowing Hungary to break.
Poor Declan Rice as the lone
holding midfielder looked almost
as swamped as the outnumbered
police skirmishing with away fans.
England did create chances. Harry
Kane went close with a shot blocked
by Adam Lang but the visitors took
the lead when Luke Shaw scissorkicked
a clearance and connected
with the head of Loic Nego.
Freiburg striker Sallai scored the
penalty and suddenly England were
Southgate has spoken a lot about
the resilience of his players and how
they’ve handled every test.
But they looked shell-shocked,
and though Kane wanted a pen at the
other end for a tackle by Attila Szalai,
he didn’t get one.
Still, England were level before the
break as Mount swung in a free-kick
which took at least two deflections
before being turned in at the far post
Raheem Sterling then had a pointblank
header from a Shaw cross
saved and really should have done
better with the follow-up.
The Manchester City misfit started
EYE TO EYE:

of the action
Gareth crowd-pleasers fail to turn up
the second half strongly, too, but after
beating two defenders his cross
was scrambled away.
A Kyle Walker mistake then presented
Andras Schafer with a chance
which England charged down.
Southgate soon decided he’d seen
enough and sent on Bukayo Saka
for Grealish, who looked absolutely
disgusted with the decision.
But this game remained firmly in
the balance with Hungary continuing
to look dangerous, and not even
Kane’s later substitution could shake
the home side up.
England blew them away 4-0 last
month with a much less attacking
line-up but Hungary had Southgate’s
team worked out this time.

Hungary fans at Wembley.
Gareth Southgate’s men were held in
this World Cup qualifier against a team
they thrashed 4-0 in Budapest last month.
Roland Sallai fired home from the spot
on 24 minutes, before John Stones equalised
eight minutes before the break.
But the Three Lions were unable to
find a winner and Kane – without a
Premier League goal this season – was
subbed with 14 minutes remaining.
The game was overshadowed by shameful
scenes off the pitch as visiting Ultras
clashed with baton-wielding police.
The FA have launched an investigation
and will report the matter to FIFA.

THE INTERACTIVE ZONE
This game requires two or more players. The first player draws a
line from any dot to any vertically or horizontally adjacent dot. The
next player does the same, and the players continue to take turns
drawing lines in this way. The object of the game is to form a square
by joining four dots. When a player draws a line that closes a square,
she writes her initials inside the square and gets a bonus turn.
When all possible lines have been drawn, the player with the
most initialled squares is the winner.

the pencil case
Think of a flower, then in the blue box
above, draw dashes to represent the
number of letters in the word. Then the
person you’re playing against starts to
guess letters. If the letter is in the word,
write it on the corresponding dash. If the
letter is not in the word then draw a line
on the hangman and cross off the letter
on the alphabet chart.
A game for two people.
Each player takes it in
turn to place their X or
O into one of the
empty squares in the
grid. To win the game
get three of your
symbols in a line
horizontally, vertically or
diagonally. Take it in
turns to start; best of 5.
