Our Albion

My worst day at school

I wake up, excited.

Finally, it’s my day to make a speech at assembly and I am raring to go.

My speech will be about the new community garden we are building at the end of our street. I want to ask the students to get involved, and get their families involved. It’s an exciting opportunity for us all and I think it would be nice to do something as a group in Year 6 before we move on to different high schools.

I will tell them this.




The story of a guy with a hammer, some nails and an old house to use them on.
