I've been a member of the school cooking club since I was ten. I'm best known as a brilliant cake maker. Last year, I made 100 cupcakes for my cousin's 18th birthday party and everyone said they were delicious. Cooking is only expensive if you buy unusual food, like Chinese vegetables that you can't find in a supermarket. I did this and made a special dinner for my Dad when he was 50.


When I was younger, I became interested in photography when my uncle let me take photos on his big digital camera. I've got my own camera now - I saved my pocket money for a year to buy it and it's fantastic. I love taking photos of people playing sport - it's really difficult to catch them at the right moment so I take several photos. The headteacher has asked me to take the photos at the school fashion show, which will be fun.


My aunt works for a fashion magazine and wears really cool clothes. I'm different from most boys because I love making clothes for me and my sisters, so I want to study fashion at college. I've already got some experience of the fashion world. With my aunt's help, I won a competition to help get the clothes ready when a famous American photographer came to take photos of models wearing winter clothes. It was a really interesting day and I could earn some money.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Mad about Becks

In 2003, 14-year-old Jenna spoke to a journalist of ours about moving to Spain.

"I've only been a Beckham fan for a couple of years but my dad always loved seeing him play at Manchester United. It took him ten hours to get there by car from Cornwall! Mum also follows Becks now. When she and I heard he was leaving to play in Spain, I said, 'Let's move to Spain!' Dad agreed to come but my older brother decided to stay in England. He's still living in our house there.

At first we didn't know if Becks would play for Barcelona or Madrid, so my parents bought a place in Alicante. It's only about three hours away from both cities. Our new home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms on one floor, and there's a flat with another two bedrooms and bathrooms under that. There's a pool, too.

My friends in England will come and visit for my birthday in February. They think I'm a bit mad but they're pleased for me too. I email them all the time. It's great to live in another country and learn a new language, but I'm finding Spanish quite difficult. I learned French in England and I keep mixing the two. It'll be easier when I start at my new school.

Becks is playing really well in Spain, which keeps my dad happy! What I love most about him is that he's a big family man. Being famous hasn't changed him. I'm having a great time in Spain and I'd really like to meet Becks one day."

Dogs are the popular pets in many countries. One reason why this is true is that they are easy to live with. They are easy to feed and look and they can also become of the family. They are often called "man's best friend". This is because they can make us laugh, they help us not feel alone, or make new friends. This is because people with dogs often love to with other people who have a dog, too.

Dogs are very clever and they can also help people do their . For example, there are guide dogs that help people who can't see or police dogs that can find people or things that the police are looking for.

Hi Mum and Dad,

I hope everything's OK (0) at home. I arrived in New Zealand yesterday. On the plane, I sat next a really nice woman who told me about of interesting places I could visit while I'm here. And I've found a place to stay isn't too expensive. I'm going to be in New Zealand for nearly month, and then I'm going to fly to USA.

Dad, did you ask your friend Patricia in San Francisco it's OK for me to stay with her next month?
