Your teacher is: Ms Lall
Favourite subject at school and why: My favourite subject is Religious Education, I have done quite a lot of work in this subject and it is fascinating to see how religion has developed. I especially like to read the stories within the different religions.
Favourite children's book you have read: I enjoy reading, very recently I have read ‘Nought & crosses’ and ‘Boys don’t cry’ by Malorie Blackman. I think she is a very brave writer who is able to challenge difficult issues in her books with ease, making them real to the reader.
What topics are you looking forward to teaching next year? I am looking forward teaching Literacy and reading the new stories covered in the year group.
Any other info: I was born in Africa and came to England when I was five years old. My favourite hobbies are cooking, trying new recipes from around the world and listening to music (usually whilst I am cooking). My favourite singer is Lata Mangeshkar, I love all her Bollywood songs and I think she had a wonderful voice. I also like to listen to songs from Mowtown, my favourite song is ‘I heard it in the grapevines’ followed closely be ‘What a wonderful world’ by Louise Armstrong.
