I start my day with a registration at a quarter to nine. This means that my form teacher checks if everyone in the form is there or not. After that, we have assembly. Sometimes assembly takes place in the form room and sometimes in our school hall. It's kind of religious get-together where we sing songs and talk about things. I have read out religious stories twice during the past twelve months.
After assembly, we go off to different classes. We have six 55-minute lessons in our school day; three in the morning and three in the afternoon. Morning break is between 11.30 and 11.45, lunch break between 12.30 and 1.30. The school day finishes at 3.45 but on Fridays we can go home at 2.55. I like Fridays!
I also like our head teacher - she's very funny and really cares about us. That's one reason we have had so many extra-curricular activities. We have over twenty clubs at our school.
My favourite school subjects are media studies and food & nutrition. Unfortunately, we have only had one period of P.E. this term and I don't think it has been enough. But we have so many sports clubs that it hasn't really mattered. This year I have belonged to three of them.
Please write to me and tell me about your school as soon as possible.
