My son Andy started school just over a week ago. Compared to my other kids, he's remarkably chatty when he gets home! Here's what he told me after his first day at school.
So what's school like? Is it very long?
It goes for millions and millions of years.
Are you tired out?
Oh yes, it was a long day. Even when you're in the first year of school, why does it have to take so long?
Do you do work yet?
We don't do work, we just do fun stuff like playing around. That kind of thing.
Did you have sport or art?
Well, Mum, I tell you what. We done our sport till we went home.
What did you do with Ben [his big brother] at playtime?
We weren't really playing anything. We walked around doing stupid stuff.
Anything else to tell me about school?
All of the guys at school when you're not counting the teachers are kids!!! Big kids, small kids, all kinds of kids! Because you're not at school when you're a grown-up. Because when you're a grown-up, straight away you'll stop school.
