What was your time at School like? What did you most enjoy/find hard?
Primary school was great, we were given so much responsibility and challenge, Secondary school was incredibly hard – I felt like a square peg being forced into a round hole. (although I now credit so many of the things I went through for my determination and persistence now.)
What subject did you enjoy most at Primary school? (Why?)
Maths – I was very good at it I could finish early and then go read in the library!
Who was your favourite teacher (why?)
Mrs Davies. I had her in Year 2 and Year 6 she loved to challenge us and never assumed we understood things but taught us to question and challenge everything.
What's your favourite Colour? (Why?)
Purple – its described as a 'royal colour' and can be so clear and bright or soft and snuggly
What's your favourite film? (Why?)
Until about 5 years ago I would have said Mary Poppins no question, then my boy watched it every week for about 18 months and I became 'immune' to its charms but I've returned to it – its such a great family movie. The worst that can happen is the kite string will break or you'll fall through the pavement picture, or laugh so much you fly.
