Lösungsvorschlag

Dear Tina, 
Thank you for your letter. I’m glad you enjoyed your holidays. We are back at school, too. Did I tell you that I’m at a new school now? It was my first day yesterday and I was really nervous. My mum and dad took me to school by car in the morning. First I had to go to the head teacher. She is really nice. Her name is Mrs Thompson. She showed me how to get to my new class. All the kids in the class are new, because we are in secondary school now. This is a school like your Gymnasium. So far I attended primary school, where I stayed for 6 years. It’s great to be old enough to go to the new school, because there are lots of cute older boys. My new classmates are really nice. Our teachers seem to be OK, too. Only the chem­istry teacher Mr Whitehead is very strange. He is old and smells. Yuck! 
When we went to the cafeteria to have lunch, some older girls pushed us round. They said we were sitting at their table. One girl, Samantha, is really ugly and terrible. She took a bottle of ketch­up and squeezed it all over my chips. I couldn’t eat them anymore. But I was lucky. The chemistry teacher saw it and shouted at her. She had to buy me new chips and he sent her to detention. That is when you have to stay longer at school after your lessons to do some extra work. There you can think about what you have done wrong. Ha­ha. Maybe Mr Whitehead is not so bad after all. Tell me about your first day at school. I hope you had a better start than me. Please write back soon. 
Love, Sarah
