Introduction

English coursework School, School, School! That's all I ever thought about as a youngster, my favourite place in the whole world. The first stage of learning, education at its launch and how I enjoyed it cannot be put into words. The competitions of whoever could be rewarded with the most smiley faced stickers to win the 'ultra-delicious chocolate cake' at the end of each week. Everybody's eyes gazing at Mrs Keene as she read story after story to us whilst sitting on the dusty floor; the only noise was the fluency of her voice until suddenly the bell would ring and signal a stampede of young children, just like a heard of rhinos, eager to see the smiles on their mothers faces and to reach home, sweet home. The next day arrives and the excitement starts again, a new picture to draw, a new story to be heard. The 'lurgey game', at lunchtime, just as exciting as the day before. This was an everyday re-occurrence for three ambitious years until the last few days of infant school arrives only just about realising that the easy and fun days are at their peak and junior school is on its way. ...read more.

Middle

At this current age it was a big role to play, having to help out everywhere and anywhere I could but was very willing all through and topping a great year off was being voted best house-captain by students and teachers. I also performed pretty well in my S.A.T.S examinations getting greater marks than most people in the year group. My last day at junior school starts and the last goodbyes' play their part, it was like retiring as king of the jungle to be one of the smallest fish in the sea. I still have to this day the shirt that most of the school signed and I hope I can treasure this for the rest of my life. Although only the three of us were going to Shenfield High School, having such a good last year at junior school really boosted my confidence and I had really high hopes for what I was heading for. Here we are again at the summer holidays but this time with a difference, I was counting down the days, as slowly as I could, until I start Shenfield High. I didn't really have a very exciting holidays just doing the same things day after day, playing football over the park whilst our bare legs, arms and face toasted in the sun. ...read more.

Conclusion

I started year eight with a lot more confidence, I was no longer the smallest fish in the sea but still far from gaining back my role as king of the jungle. Throughout this year lots of new words were learnt, everybody is going through hormonal changes and being at the average age for puberty to start all parts of the puzzle started to find their own place. Girls start talking about boys and boys start talking about girls, there is no longer the image of the devil in your mind when anybody talks to you about a girl, it is more of a favoured topic of conversation. I finished year eight with no major problems, and again the same with year nine. I begun my GCSE's in year ten and my favoured subjects were Geography, Business Studies, German and I.T. I think to myself now regrettably why did I choose these subjects but at the time you never knew really what you were in for. I'm still, just about, finishing my courses awaiting the examinations but have put myself into my own Grand Canyon with leaving coursework extremely late. A very selfish and lazy option to make but here I am now even writing this piece twelve months late, still with bundles to do in practically impossible amounts of time. I'll just co-operate doing my coursework indulging in the big wide world ahead of me. ...read more.
