Miss L Friend

Hi, I’m Miss Friend. I teach in Woodpecker class Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I have a son called Lucas who is 5. He loves dinosaurs, so I know quite a lot of information about them! We love reading, and he likes all the Mr Men stories. It’s hard to choose my favourite story, but I love ‘Oi Frog’ because it’s funny and ‘Angelica Sprockets Pockets’ by Quentin Blake because I wish I had a coat like hers. At the weekend, I like to go running and on bike rides (if there aren’t too many hills!) and I like making and decorating cakes. I have a pet cat called Ernie who is white with 2 black spots on his back which look like eyes, and he has a black tail which looks like a smile when he sits down!

I like spending time in my garden growing flowers and strawberries. My favourite foods are curry and chocolate, but not at the same time!
