Year 6 Diary IV

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 girls's diary.

7.00am - 9.00am I got up, got dressed. Went downstairs, got some breakfast. Went back upstairs and brushed my teeth. Went downstairs, brushed my hair. I got my bag and my shoes on and went to school.
9.00am - 11.00am I was sat at my table while the teacher did the register and after that we did English up until quarter to eleven and then we went out to play. We came back in at eleven o'clock.
11.00am - 12.30pm After break we came back in and we went on to the yard. We went back 5 minutes later. The bell rang for dinner and we went out on the field.
12.30pm - 1.30pm Mrs J__ came to the cloakroom door and Mrs C__ blew the whistle. Mrs B__'s base and our base lined up for dinner. We all went into the dinner hall. Me and my friend found a spare table to sit on and then J__ came and sat down. We all finished our dinner and went out to play hide and seek.
1.30pm - 3.30pm We came back in from dinner and our teacher did the register and we finished off our history. She said "Chairs up, trays up, you may go home."
3.30pm - 6.00pm After school I went home, got changed and went for a little bike ride with my friend. Ten minutes later we went to play in her garden. My mum called me in for my tea at 6.00pm.
6.00pm - bedtime I came back out after my tea and went on my bike to see if I could find my friend and I did. We went up to my house to see who was up there. We some others and asked them to play ball tag, so they did. My mum called me in at 8pm to go in, so I did. I got my pyjamas on. I stayed downstairs until 9.00pm then I went to bed.
