The Christmas When Santa Was Spotted Missing The Point

One Christmas, Santa lost his map – no wonder, he was a very lost chap … and around Greenland got in a flap ! He was really disappointed and the wheels on the sleigh became more and more disjointed. He headed off to Land’s End, then skidded as he went round the bend. In the Channel, his hopes were dashed, around the Isle of Wight, he got splashed. He meant to circum – navigate, but got so lost, he had to reset that year’s Christmas date. The Christmas when Santa circled Cape Cod, he wished he’d remembered his fishing rod ! Around the Cape of Good Hope, he almost collided into a fishing boat ! He missed home rather a lot, of all the places that he travelled, it was his favourite spot. He longed to be by the fireplace, getting hot and eat all the mince pies Mrs. Christmas had got.

Just Stop This

Be spot on with this English game. In just one full – stop, the end of the sentence drops off … Where should the sentences begin and end in this passage ? Where should the letters “j” and “i” go ?
