The most important person in my life is my mother, Nazlifah Kamileen. She is 41 years old and is a housewife. She cooks tasty food for us and tells us to study well. She helps me to study hard subjects.
She makes me happy and cheers me up when I am sad. My mother scolds me if I have done
something wrong. But I don't cry because she is scolding me for my own sake. That's because when I am big I won't do the wrong thing again.
She picks me up from school. She buys me
interesting books and
storybooks. She buys me colourful clothes and lets me wear them.
I choose her as my most important person because she looks after me very lovingly.
She feeds me and gives me medicine when I am sick. She cares about me a lot. She buys me good things and she has put me into a good school for me to study. She keeps me and my brother safe. I'm proud to say that she is my mother and I love her a lot.

My pet is a parrot. Its name is Jooth. It is green in colour. It has a red beak and a lovely chain around its neck. It is a male parrot.
He was presented to me by my father for my seventh birthday. I was very happy when he gave it to me as I always wanted a parrot as a pet. He likes to eat paddy and green gram. But its favourite food is mango.
My mother trains him to talk. I play with him every evening. He is very active. When he is hungry it calls my name and I give him food. I love my pet. I wish he will be my pet forever.

My hobby is reading books. I read books in my free time. I read all kinds of books. They are, 'Nancy Drew', 'Secret Seven', 'Famous Five', 'Milly, Molly, Mandy', 'Ali Baba' and the 'Sunshine Books'.
I read books to improve my spellings and my English knowledge. Everyone has a hobby of their own. Having a hobby is fun. I get books from everyone in my family. I have so much fun reading books.
My favourite sport
By Rashad Rizan (8 years),
My favourite sport is cricket. I like this game because we play as a team together. There are eleven players in a team. My favourite cricketer is Nuwan Soysa.
I play cricket with my friends' everyday. This game is played with a method of
bowling, batting and fielding. I like batting the most. My father presented me with a leather set for my birthday.
I watch cricket matches during my leisure time. My dream is to be an international player for Sri Lanka in the future.

Water comes from rain, waterfall and ponds. We
cannot live without water. Water is very important for us. Water is very useful to
people, children, animals, plants and trees. We use water for so many things. We wash, cook and bathe with water.
We should boil water before we drink it. Water is
colourless. We should not waste water and must use it
