Back to School
When the summer is over, children go to school. Everyone knows that the first of September is the Day of Knowledge.
Children start preparing their school uniforms and bags. There should be books, dictionaries, pencils, pens and copybooks in the pupil’s school bag. Soon they are going to use maps and globes in Geography lessons, computers in IT lessons and a blackboard in other lessons. Mornings will start at seven o’clock and evenings will be busy with homework.
