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!
