What was your favourite sport at primary school?
Football – all you needed (at most) was a ball and two posts (school jumpers). Everyone could be included, from two players to 40 players.
What value is most important to you?
Fairness – always treat people the way you would like to be treated, no matter who they are. Combined with having a positive attitude, this encourages good things to happen.
What is your favourite hobby?
Skiing – it’s exercising without you realising. It’s always lots of fun with friends and family and there are opportunities to push yourself mentally and physically. Great food too and fantastic views!
How well do you think England will do in the World Cup?
I am aware that the England team have brilliant players. I think they will either come close or win!
Which country in the world would you like to visit?

The other match today:
Norway 1-1 Australia – Norway win 4-1 on penalties.
This is important because it increases safety and makes the government stable.
“There are lots of facts and it shows you different players from different teams. It also shows you lots of pictures. It is very interesting because you find out lots of things about football.”
“It is easy to read because of the way it’s set out and all the subheadings are really bold.”
“My favourite article was the one about the Women’s World Cup.”
This is a great value because people are free to be themselves and make their own decisions, such as what jobs they would like to work at.
