All about your class teacher

My favourite subject is PE, I love being active and enjoy going to the gym. 

I love to read and try to read at least one book a month. My favourite author as a child was Jacqueline Wilson and read most of her books, with my favourite being 'The Bed and Breakfast Star'. I also read all of the Harry Potter books multiple times both as an adult and a child. 

 I love to travel, I love to see different cultures, foods and ways of life. My favourite place I have visited is Belize!
