It's Sarah’s first day at the new school and she wants to write an e-mail to her German friend Tina. Here are her notes. Please write the e-mail trying to use these notes.
- thank her for e-mail
- good that she enjoyed holidays
- we’re back at school, too
- ask Tina if I told her that I’m at new school, first day yesterday, really nervous
- mum and dad took me by car, first had to go to head teacher, nice, name: Mrs Thompson, showed me how to get to new class
- all kids in class new, we’re in secondary school now, like German “Gymnasium” (so far I attended primary school, stayed there for 6 years)
- great: to be old enough, new school, lots of cute older boys
- new classmates: nice
- teachers: seem OK, too, only chemistry teacher (Mr Whitehead) strange, old, smells. Yuck!
- later: went to cafeteria (have lunch), some older girls pushed us around, said we were sitting at their table. Samantha, really ugly & terrible, took bottle of ketchup & squeezed it all over my chips, couldn’t eat them anymore, but was lucky, chemistry teacher saw it, shouted at her
- she had to buy new chips for me & he sent her to detention (= you have to stay longer at school after lessons/extra work/think about what you have done wrong). Ha-ha!
- Mr Whitehead not so bad after all?
- Ask Tina to tell about her first day at school, hope she had better start
- write soon
Thank you for your e-mail.
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 around. 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.

Translate these sentences from Tina’s e-mail into English. Use as many possessive determiners and pronouns as possible.
Poor Sarah. She receives an answer from Tina, but Tina didn’t remember to write her e-mail in English. Sarah doesn’t speak German, so she needs someone to translate the e-mail for her.
