Childhood Memories

Extracts from this document...


Childhood Memories I remember the day clearly. I was eleven at the time, and it was my first day at Comprehensive school. I woke up to the sound of "School Today Ben!" I slumped back under my duvet covers. I didn't want to think about it. I wanted to stay in bed, not go to school, but I knew that I had to go. Slowly I pulled myself out of bed, dreading the moment where I would have to leave the house, my place of comfort, relaxation and happiness. Soon, I was crunching away at my cornflakes, trying to take my mind off the day's happenings. Suddenly I was awoken out of my coma hearing my mum's voice. "Ben, you have to be out of the house in five minutes". My heart sunk like a stone. Where had the time gone? I quickly finished eating my cornflakes, and then hurriedly jogged up the stairs to clean my teeth. When that was done I grabbed my bag, and rushed down the stairs, and inadvertently tripping on something on the bottom step. ...read more.


At last, we were told to go to the hall. Apparently that was the place where we would be sorted into classes, and told the school rules. Me and Gustavo walked nervously into the school, and followed the signs that were posted around the school that were pointing towards the school hall. My throat had suddenly dried up, and I felt very nervous. I guessed that Gustavo must be feeling the same, as he looked paler than I have ever seen him like before! We eventually arrived at the hall and I opened the hall doors to find around eighty other first years sitting down already. I ushered Gustavo to two empty seats in the middle of the hall. I was relieved to see that I was not the only one who seemed nervous. Many of my fellow first years I could see dotted around me were just biting their nails, which was an obvious sign of being anxious! Soon everyone had arrived, and the head teacher arrived on the stage, introducing himself to us as Mr. Stacey.

I was just starting to get into my stride when the buzzer went. Disappointed, I trudged away on the way to my first lesson which was Music. After what felt like forever it was lunch time. Music had been fun, as we were able to mess around on the keyboards, but the lesson after that, Science, seemed to take forever. I've never liked Biology! I went to the canteen for lunch, and met some mates from primary school there. I remember having a curry, with rice and chips. I wouldn't say I loved it, but it was alright! When I finished lunch I went out with some mates to play football. In what seemed like record time, it was time to go home. I had to endure Maths, followed by English. Top set in both, but in English we had to write around two full pages regarding some rules! I remember never really liking Miss Jasper and her screechy voice after that! Anyway, surprisingly enough, I had actually enjoyed my first day of school after all! ?? ?? ?? ?? Ben Harris 10 JKF Mr Altman ...read more.
