A Day At School
written by Luca Botswana 2014
I usually wake up at 6 am, 1 hour before school starts. I have
enough time to get changed , have breakfast and brush my teeth. All I
need to wear is a tee shirt shorts and pants. I walk to school it's about 5
metres it takes me a few seconds.
School starts at 7 am. First we do language we start with some
spellings, after language we do maths. We read every day and the
teacher ( my mum) reads to us. The children call the teacher "teacher
Ellie". We sometimes do sport, gymnastics and art. We play outside a
lot there is a photo of us pretending to be on a game drive. We learn
lots of science about wildlife from experience.
We have a garden for food, we water this every
evening. At midday we have lunch at Louise's
house. She is the boss of Limpopo Horse Safaris.
It is so hot, usually 30+ centigrade rarely up to
40 centigrade, we have a rest each afternoon.
Each afternoon, Mamaoulo and teacher Ellie take us for activities,
on Monday swimming, other days horse riding, or riding our bikes on
the rocks or the airfield. We need to look out for snakes and warthogs.
The children usually travel in the back of the pickup truck, it's fun and
we get muddy on the bumpy tracks. Once we saw a leopard in the
dried up river bed. We see a lot of elephant and impala, once we saw
9 lions that had tried chasing elephants.
Sometimes the baboons break into the school and they make a
real mess, my friends and me try scaring them
away, we go on baboon patrol.
I hope you are having good , happy days at your school.
Love from Luca.
