Year 7 and their First Week
“My first week at HCC was great! I lost my way a couple of times, but now I’m getting to know where everything is.
My favourite lessons are Art, English, Maths, Computing and Life Skills. When I first started I was worried that I would miss a lesson, but I have not.”
“I was worried about getting lost, but I asked my buddy. I love the new uniform. I was worried about missing the bus in my first week, but I didn't. I love the Pasta King in the canteen. I was worried that I was going to be bullied, but I haven't been.”
“What if I get lost and am late for lessons? What if I am too small and get bullied? What if the teachers set really hard homework that I really can’t do? What if I get told off? What if I lost all my friends? What if I am late for school?
What if the tall people are scary? What if I don't know where the toilet is? What will I do?
But they were all ‘what ifs’ and not what happened. “
“I like poetry. My favourite lessons are Computing, Maths and Art. My first week at school has been great. I was worried about being bullied, but I haven't been. I have also made lots of new friends from different primary schools.”
“My favourite lessons are PE, Computing and English. I have not got lost and I am enjoying school.”
“My favourite lessons are PE, Maths and German. I am enjoying school, I enjoyed the first week a lot. I go to the Care Farm on a Wednesday where we do team building activities. The canteen food is good!”
“My first week at school was very good. It was easy finding my way around the school. I am getting to know all the teachers really well.”
