It was Anna’s first day of school. Now her family had moved to South Hampton, she had no choice but to start a new one. The school was called St Lukes and it was a catholic school. Anna just went to the bench and sat down, with no one sitting next to her. She looked around her. St Lukes did not look like St Marks, her old school at all.
Suddenly, the bell rang, and Anna saw everyone line up in about twelve lines. She did not know what class was year three, so needed help, but did not have any courage left to even talk to someone. Then suddenly “Hello! Are you the new girl in our class? My name is Hannah and yours………….” a nice girl said to her. Anna mumbled back “Anna” and looked down onto the concrete playground. “Oh! No need to be shy, this school is very friendly. Come, I’ll show you where to line up.” Hannah took Anna’s hand and walked Anna to the year three line.
Once Anna and her new class had arrived in class and settled down, Mrs Sliberbottom said “Come Anna to the front of the class. I will introduce you to your new classmates.” Anna walked up to her while Mrs Sliberbottom laid her hands on Anna’s shoulders. Then she said “Class, this new student Anna. You should help her this week to show her around the school and play with her at break. Alright now Hannah, go and take a seat next to Hannah at that table at the far and end of the classroom.” As her finger pointed out, Anna had now calmed down and took her seat. Throughout the day classmates did help her and many girls and boys became her friends, especially Hannah. Anna liked St Lukes and could not wait until the next day.
