Year 6 Diary II

The children from a Year 6 class (10-11 year olds) at Trefonnen School were asked to fill in a diary of their day, draw a picture of their room at home and a map of their route to school, and to answer some questions about themselves. This is a boy's diary.

7.00am - 9.00am I was in a huge rush to get dressed and eat my breakfast so I could just watch cartoons! But before I could do that dad said "Wash, and don't forget to brush your teeth." And then I walked downstairs and brushed my teeth and then watched cartoons until school started.
9.00am - 11.00am I had to finish off all the work from yesterday for quite a while before I got handed a form about all this - pieces of paper to do for homework and for to do now at school.
11.00am - 12.30pm We were doing some of the school homework at school but we were doing the map of the way we walk to school and I live just up the lane!
12.30pm - 1.30pm We finished the maps and moved on to favourites. Top Ten favourites of nearly everything. It was solid like hell. I did about ¼ of it in 30 mins!
1.30pm - 3.30pm We decided to do a bit more with the map, add detail and all that stuff. It was quite hard but we did that until hometime.
3.30pm - 6.00pm I sat on the table doing loads of homework and then did one sheet at a time, wating for dad to say "Come on we can go out and have tea." And guess what? He did. We went to Burger King and had my favourite burger.
6.00pm - bedtime We came back and I finished off one of my sheets. One more after this one and then up to bed with him! (More like me up to bed!) And then I'll go to bed to go to sleep and wait for drama tomorrow. It's about a murder on the ship. Who is a millionaire!
