Write about your life.

Think about:
Who are you? pop star? actor / actress?

Abbie Hook is a young and successful pop star.

ask me about the things I buy. When Im in the

sometimes I just want to be a normal person,
doing normal things.

four school subjects:

four verbs of daily routine:

get up,

Write
3 What is your ideal school day? Include at
least five school subjects and choose the
times. Write about 60 words.
Example: I get up at half past nine and I

watch TV for half an hour. School


starts at

five times of day:

11.00,

Parents are not very happy about a revolutionary
project in Newcastle in the north of England, but
the local kids love it.
This is the idea: Secondary school, for children
from 11 to 18, doesnt start until eleven oclock,
which means the children dont get up at a
normal time like half past seven. They get up
at ten oclock! The first class of the day is always
a subject in which you dont write much, like art
or music, because most people dont like writing
when they first get to school. Then the children
have subjects like maths or French before they
have lunch at twenty to three.

Darrel, who is 13, says, I think the idea is great!


I dont go to bed until two oclock in the morning,
so I can watch all the late films on television!

His mother, Laura, doesnt agree. I think its


a terrible idea, she says.

day in the park at the weekends and there are lots
of people doing different things. But when its cold
