My favourite Kyson memory is when we made toast in reception (I like toast, alright?!)

If I could visit anywhere in the world, I would visit.... Peru! The vast jungles always seem to be an interest of mine, also, who wouldn't want to meet Paddington!!

My favourite subject at school would be a tough decision between English and art. They are both creative subjects, and I enjoy expressing myself through art and creative writing.

Something surprising about me is that I can roll my tongue into weird positions, for example I can roll it, make a W shape with it, and make it look like I have very fat lips 🤪.

My advice to future journalists would be: think about your target audience. What age are they? Is it a formal or exciting piece of work? What are you trying to address? You always need to consider those key points when writing an article.
My favourite Kyson memory is when we built dens and tents and then ate lunch in them.
I would go to Africa to see all of the amazing animals in the safari.
My favourite subject at school is probably either Art because I'm really creative or French because we're doing a play on TinTin and it's really fun.
Something to know about me: I love school!
My top tip would be to find something INTERESTING and just start no matter what because then it will just flow out of you.
My favourite Kyson memory was our year 5 assembly because we got to write our own lines.
If I could visit anywhere in the world, I would visit the US because I've always wanted to go to Yellowstone National Park.
My favourite subject is either English or History because I like learning about the past and I want to be a children's author when I'm older.
My advice to future journalists: always try to choose a subject that will keep you interested.
My favourite Kyson memory is getting the drama award in year one because I did so well in the Nativity.
If I could visit anywhere in the world, I would go to Vietnam because my parents went there and they said it was great.
My favourite subject is English because I love writing stories.
My surprising fact: I was born two weeks late my umbilical cord was rapped around my neck and the doctors had to do emergency surgery because my heart rate decreased by 20 beats per minute.
My advice is to always speak truthfully and do not twist the person’s words.
My favourite Kyson memory would be doing the year 1 and 2 nativity in front of all the parents.

If I could go anywhere, I would go to Australia because with a big family it will be very hard to go so if I got the opportunity then I would take it. 

One surprising thing about me: I really hate explaining stuff, like say if I went on holiday I would not like telling people what happened but I don't know why I don't like it.

My advice to new journalists is to try mix it up a bit and don't talk about things everyone knows already so you can surprise everyone reading.

Keep it up Kyson!
Football! football! football!
Year 6 went to an amazing match against St. Mary's and played outstandingly well and had great fun.
After 2 full matches the teachers and the school were blown away with the grins that lit up our faces when we returned to school the next day!! We couldn't have been more proud but we didn't play our best but still rose to the standard the teachers and team set.

Get sporty with a smile!
