MY NEW CLASS
I’m Paul. I am a pupil of Grade Three now. I was studying in another town from Grade One to Grade Three. My class had twenty-five pupils. We were all great friends. We often helped each other with home tasks and played games together. Our teacher took us for an outing1 on every holiday when the weather was fine. I felt so unhappy when my parents told me about moving away.
So I am in a new class this year. Fortunately, the children are all very friendly. They like to learn. They are fond of reading and sports. Our interests are alike.
