Let's begin by continuing with another activity to help us think about adjusting to our new secondary school in September. In this activity we are focusing on what you are and what you are not looking forward to about your new school. You'll also be asked to think about what you know about secondary school and to consider any questions you still have about it. If you have any questions, think about who you might ask to help you.
You can always revisit the Bitesize link from the other day, click on the button just before the activity.
Remember there is always someone you can turn to if you would like to talk about your feelings. You could talk to a member of your family or someone at Blue Gate Fields Junior school using the email@example.com email address. You could also contact Julianne or Kaz on their school email address which is: firstname.lastname@example.org

End of the day
Joseph grew up in Roehampton on the outskirts of London. Living in a tower block and other childhood memories feature in many of his poems.
He says that he wasn’t able to read or write properly until he was seven years old, and the idea of being a writer did not occur to him when he was young. But at secondary school he began to write poetry, beginning with a poem titled “Unbearable” – about a bear!
He studied archaeology at university and then had lots of different jobs – gym instructor, salesman and even being an ‘extra’ on film sets! But he continued to write plays and poems, and now enjoys being a poet and performer.
