“My first day of school
When it was my first day of school, I can remember I put on my uniform, combed my hair, looked at myself in the mirror, and then went for my breakfast.
I had my breakfast then put on my black polished shoes, I put my coat on then went outside.
My mum took a photograph of me, as usual, and I went and sat in the car, my brother was carried to the car and put in his seat.
I set off for school, and when I got there, I saw my friend from pre-school, she had another girl with her, she was crying and another girl came up and helped my friends and me.
I think we said we would be friends forever.
The bell went, and I walked into class.
As I saw my teacher for the first time, I felt a wave of happiness flow through my body, she looked kind, thoughtful, and very happy.
I had to put my name in a basket, to show whether I was feeling either happy or sad, and I sat down.
She took the register, and then said a few things about the school, told us the rules, and then gave us a tour around the school.
After that, we played inside for a bit, my friends and me, then went to play on the climbing frame, I also, I think, went on a bike.
The whistle blew and we went inside.
Then I played in the sandpit and finally, when it was lunchtime, I went home.
My parents came to pick me up, with my brother, and I had a broad smile on my face.
I said, “I was so scared when I saw the school, it was big, but I saw my friend and I went over to her.
When I saw my teacher, I was happy.
I can’t wait till I go next week.
