MAKING FRIENDS:

If you’re scared of going up to people to make friends, if you think about it they’re probably just as scared to come up to you.  So instead of doing nothing just go up to them.

SCHOOL EQUIPMENT:

In primary school there is skipping ropes and hula hoops and in secondary school there might not be, but you can find other things to do:  football, rugby, chatting to your friends.

FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND:

There might be loads of older children crowding round but remember there will be other Year 7s in the same boat so stay together.

DIFFERENT TEACHERS:

There might be lots of teachers who are really nice one day and then really strict the next.  You have to perservere, or try a time when they’re not so busy.

NEW SUBJECTS:

We’re excited about the new subjects and going into things like science in more detail.

HOMEWORK:

There might be loads of pages and this might be frustrating and confusing.  But just like we said to the St Joes Dons, you can ask your parents and teachers for help.
