Year 6 Diary V

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 Got ready for school. 9.00am set off for school
9.00am - 11.00am 9.00am arrived at school. Stayed on the yard for 10 min; went in. 9.10 - 9.30 am did work. At 11.45am it was playtime on the yard.
11.00am - 12.30pm At 11am it was time for my class to go swimming, at 12.30pm it was dinner. Playtime on the field.
12.30pm - 1.30pm At 12.45am it was time to go into the hall for dinner. When it was 1.15pm I went out to play back onto the field until 1.30pm.
1.30pm - 3.30pm When it became 1.30pm everyone on the field went in because it was in time. Did work to 2pm.
3.30pm - 6.00pm 3.30pm was home time. Everyone in my class put their chairs and trays up and went home.
6.00pm - bedtime As soon as I went home I did my homework. At 5pm I watched TV and was eating my tea (jacket potato, cheese, cucumber and tomato and beans). 8.30 pm went to bed.
