  • Things you like
  • Things you dislike
  • Sports (if you take part or support any sports)
  • Favourite films
  • Who your idol might be
  • Favourite places
  • Your family
  • How school was for you

If you have access to technology this activity could be produced as a presentation.  If not, you may want to include pictures/drawings on your written work.
