Watch out Jamie Oliver…
Safiya, one of our Woodstar School pupils, tells us what she likes about school – and her ambitions:
I like school, the best thing is lying programme and reading books.
I find walking really hard, I like it but it’s hard.
I’d like to be better at music especially drumming.
At home I like reading stories and watching TV. I like playing hide and seek with my sisters.
I like people to get to know me, to work with me, spending some time with me.
I’d like to cook when I’m older. I’d like to be a famous chef.
Safiya uses both speech and a high tech communication aid to express herself. She has learnt to use the communication aid so that she can be understood by all around her, including when she is out shopping for ingredients!
