Nouf likes to write horror stories. An example of her writing is a letter viewed in the mail sent to us by her teacher which read as follows:

Dear Mum and Dad,

Grade 2 AM
P.o.Box 6446,

I have an amazing animal story to tell you!
Last night I heard a sound and I wondered what it was. I looked up on my shelf and I saw a baby alligator. I picked him up and put him on the ground. I went to tell my brother. I said to him, I have found an alligator in my bedroom. He said thatís impossible. So I went to tell my Nanny that I found an alligator in my bedroom. She said thatís impossible. So I went to tell my three years old brother but he didnít know what I said. So I went to tell my baby Faisal but I forgot that he canít talk. So I decided to put the alligator in Dubai Zoo. They came to take him away. Mum and Dad I know you wouldnít believe my story if I told it to you so I have decided to write it in a letter.

 Love from Nouf.

Nouf enjoys dancing and music.  She is seen here in the National dress after a school party for the UAE National day.

Nouf also likes writing horrible spells that are frightening.  One is listed below:

My Horrible Spell

Round about the cauldron go,
In the poisoned entrails throw.
Double Double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

I saw a snake, that I have to bake.
A game to fame and a name to blame.
I saw a dog, almost like a frog.
A seal was big, he really had to dig.

A man could not swim in the sea,
He was afraid he'd drowned, from water he'd flee.
You have to try, so I know why.
Each animal is freed, here is a lesson to heed.

Everyone will fall, here is a lesson for all.
Thank you now I am finished and I will eat spinach.
