name is Anne-Marie. I go to St Helena's Primary School and
am about to move to secondary school. I'm 12. I've got a couple
of best friends at school, Charlene and Yvonne. My wee brother
Thomas also goes to my school, but he's only in P3. He sits
with his own pals at lunchtime, thank goodness! I'm tall for
my age, so my gran says.
subject at school is English. I love it when we have to write
stories. I can think up loads of different things and create
characters all the time. I would love to be a writer when
I grow up. I've read all of Jacqueline Wilson's books. I think
Dixie Diamond and Daisy are my favourite characters. I quite
like gym, but I can't climb ropes! I prefer when we get taken
to the swimming pool, and quite like hockey.
worried about moving to secondary school .
My 2 best friends are moving to a different school so I don't
know what I'll do. I'll know people from my primary, but it
won't be the same. I am quite clever and this causes problems
with people being jealous. Everyone is going to be older and
I've heard stories
about what can happen to you , getting stuff stolen and getting
pushed on the bus.
I've heard you can get a bully buddy but that will probably
make me more of a target. I'm tall for my age and get called
'lanky' and 'beanpole'
so it's going to be worse at secondary. Mum says I'll love
it but I'm not sure. What if older girls find out about this
and start to gang up on me? Does anyone else
feel like this?
