Patrick Willis, Class 6S, homework assignment:

‘Write about a member of your family to whom you are either very different or very similar.’ Although my twin brother Adam and I look almost the same, we are actually very different. He is sociable and knows lots of people, whereas I tend to keep myself to myself. He is definitely the sporty one and he’s always trying something new – last weekend it was wakeboarding.

I, on the other hand, tend to stick to what I know, which in my case is our amazing universe. I like to follow the latest developments in space exploration and read and learn as much as I can about the solar system and beyond. I can happily spend hours wondering what might or might not be ‘out there.’ Adam and I are very different characters, but we do get along well. I’m very proud of my brother. This summer, after training hard for six months, he completed his first half-marathon and he was, of course, the fastest teenager in the race. 8
