Because when I first came to school she has been my best friend since I got there and she’s taken care of me and looked after me and she helped me with times tables. I’ve never ever ever had a fight with her. She’s one of my only friends who doesn’t argue.

When is the last time someone hurt your feelings? How did you react?
A few weeks ago because my friend had a falling out with everyone and only liked one person. She made everyone upset. We told someone at school how we felt and they told us to try and sort it out but they also said not to talk to her so we were confused then the boys in the class started being mean to the girls and that was before the summer holidays so I don’t know what’s been sorted out.
Do you know someone who is going though a hard time? How can you help them?
*Sneezes* **Blows nose very noisily** I think my friend S is having a hard time because she has been bullied. Well two girls bully her. And whenever it gets sorted out by an adult they start again. I give her advice and tell her it is their problem not hers because she’s lovely.

The scariest thing that has happened in the world is all of the attacks in France because people keep dying because we learnt it school and they keep being attacked. So that is scary and also, earthquakes.
