A Kid's Life
I am eleven years old, and I am in primary school. Next year I will go to secondary school. We go to school from age five to eleven. I have a test to take tomorrow because you take tests when you are seven, eleven, fourteen, and sixteen. We wear uniforms when we go to school. Our summer vacation is six weeks long.
Our food is very simple. Beef, lamb and pork are common meats. Sometimes people roast or boil potatoes.
The names of foods often tell what part of England they come from. Yorkshire pudding and Cornish pasties are my favorite foods. Cornish pasties are a flaky crust filled with meat potatoes and vegetables. Yorkshire pudding is a batter cake baked in meat fats.
We play many sports here, like rugby, cricket, and tennis. My personal favorite is soccer. In England, we call it football. Some other things we do for fun include golfing, fishing, and hunting. Some party games are dominoes, darts, and snooker. Snooker is similar to pool.
For clothes we wear western clothing, just as kids in America do.
The weather is never too hot and never too cold. It rains a lot, England is well known for its rainy weather. There is little snow, even in the mountains. We get the most sunny weather in the southeast coast.
The language we speak is English except
we have different meanings for words than they do in the U.S.A. Here are some of them.
Some really fun places to visit are the sunny regions. London is also the most popular place to visit. My favorite attractions are Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. You can also visit Buckingham Palace except you can't go inside because that is where the queen lives. My country is smaller then the U.S. state of Alabama so it is not very large.
Well, I've got to go study for that test I have to take tomorrow. I hope you liked my page about my country and I, and I hope you can visit me someday.
