Hi, my name is Ibraheem,and I am 11 years old. My favourite subject is P.E because I love football. My favourite teachers are Miss Bridge and Mrs Davis because they are funny and nice. My best friends are Conor and Shay because I have known them before we went to school. My favourite trip was when we went to the Black Country Museum, my favourite part was when we went into the mines because it’s was dark and creepy and we learned about the people who worked in there. My favourite memory was when a squirrel jumped on to Mr Smith’s head – I liked this because it was funny. When I am older I would like to be a police officer. In September I am going to Light Hall.

Hi my name is Rayan and I am 10 years old. My favourite subject is Art because it is fun and relaxing. My favourite teachers are Mrs Davis and Miss Bridge because they have been there for us for a long time. My best friends are Umar and Avais because they are funny and always make me laugh if I feel sad. My favourite trip that I have been on in Robin Hood is Staffordshire Regiment Museum in Year 6 because I got to hold a gun and I saw massive war tanks. When I am older I want to become an army pilot to help the country and protect the people. In September the school that I’m going to is Ninestiles Academy.

My name is Shay and I am 11 years old. My favourite subjects are P.E., Maths, Literacy and I.C.T. My favourite teacher is Miss Moxon because she has been very supportive and kind when it was near SATs; although she pushed us to the limits – I’m glad she did – because it helped me get better and helped me to not be anxious about SATs. My best friends are Tyler, Ibraheem and many more! My favourite trips are Black Country Museum in Year 5, because we got to go in the mines (it was really fun). My other favourite trip is when we went to Staffordshire Regiment Museum, because we got to hold real guns and go in man-made trenches. My favourite memory of Robin Hood is the £10 project, because my group – me, Haris, Rayan, Ibraheem, and Tyler – raised over £100 and gave it to the RSPCA and we all received gifts! When I am older I want to be Car Engineer. I am going to Light Hall for my secondary school.

My name is Harpal and I am 11 years old. My favourite subject is Art because I’ve loved it since I was little and I still do. My favourite teacher is Mrs Davis and Miss Bridge, Mrs  Davis has been with me since Nursery and Miss Bridge I’ve known for two years. Both of them are great to be with. My best friends are Amilah and Shaan. My favourite memory of Robin Hood is the Tenner project  because we were in a groups trying to make lots of money. My favourite Trip of Robin Hood is the Cricket Tournament in Year 5 because we played lots of games of Cricket against other schools and it was a lot of fun. When I am older I want to be an artist because I like painting and drawing. In September I am going to Light Hall and I’m really excited to go and make new friends.

My name is Preet and I am 11 years old. My favourite subject is Art and I.C.T. I love Art because it is all to do with crafts and creativity. Also, it is full of colour and I love drawing. I like I.C.T because at home, I play around with computer trying to configure settings and practise programming. Also, I love technology and how people invent and upgrade ipads, phones with touchscreen…etc. My favourite teachers are Miss Bridge and Mrs Davis. They are my favourite because they are very kind and helpful and they have taught me a lot. Mrs Davis has been in my class for many years. My best friends are Laiba, Farah and many more. My favourite trip was Black Country Museum especially because I loved the “mines”. It was all so real – dark and gloomy! My favourite memory is Professor McGinty, because he was so funny and humorous. I don’t know (yet!) what I want to do when I am older. In September, I am going to Alderbrook School.

Hi, My name is Shaan Kaur-Nagra. My favourite subject is Maths because first if you don’t know the answer and it is a mission to work it out. Also I love Art because if you are sad and you draw a picture you can feel your feelings in the picture. My favourite teacher is Mrs Davis because she has been with me since the start of Robin Hood, also she makes me laugh. My best friends are: Amilah, and Harpal from 6EB and Aleeza from 6LU.My favourite trip was Aston Villa-Vitality, because we got to make pasta and fruit salad. Also we got to go to a child-friendly gym. The best memory is when we had a disco in year 4.We had to dance to get prizes and it was a lot of fun because we danced with all our friends. When I am older I want to be a doctor for children and go to poor countries and help them because unfortunately some of them are very unhealthy. In September I am going to Nishkam High School, this is a Sikh school. I am going to miss Robin Hood!

My name is Laiba and I am 11 years old. My favourite subject is P.E because I get to keep fit and have fun. Moreover, my favourite teachers are Miss Bridge- because she let us go on rides at the fairground, Mrs Davis- because she has been with me for a long time, Mrs Underwood- because she makes me laugh and Mrs Cunningham because she is very kind to me and lets me look after young children. My best friends are Preet and Farah. Furthermore, my favourite trip of Robin Hood Academy was when we went to the Black Country Museum. I particularly prefer this trip as we went down a pitch-black mine and Miss Bridge very kindly used her and my group’s money to go on a ride in the fairground. This ride went extremely fast and it was very, very fun. In addition, my favourite memory of Robin Hood Academy is Professor McGinty and his fantastic, educational speeches about History. Despite the fact that I am not sure about what I want to be when I am older there is a chance that I might become an optician. In September, I am going to Langley School.
