10th November 2014

Finally, I am out of my uncomfortable travel-box! I had a nice postcard from Slovenia with me that I read at least a hundred times because I was so very bored. But today I learnt that they had holidays in Germany while I arrived. They are called autumn holidays – can you believe it? They have got holidays for every season!

Two weeks of not going to school, then six weeks school and after that there are the Christmas holidays. Today I was greeted in the teacher’s room which is quite large but not everybody has their own table. Ms Krüger and Mrs Stadtsholte cared for me and showed me around a little and took me to meet their classes.

There are 28 pupils in class 6B and  30 in class 5C and they all seem very nice. The classrooms are big and they told me they would take me on a full tour some other day. The students need to prepare properly, because they need to think about what they want to show me. I’m excited to get to know this huge school with 1000 pupils and over 100 teachers.

Today I am visiting with Jonas and Lukas, who are twins, and I’ll stay the night to find out what they have for breakfast in the morning.
