the first thing we do is wake up

In the morning, I run myself a bath.

I get in,

wash my hair first and my body, then I get dry and get changed.

I make myself a cup of tea and

then make my breakfast.

When I get dressed I

am thinking about going into the kitchen to get breakfast.

I eat my breakfast in the dining room

and drink my tea after.

I have cornflakes.

I sit with other people to eat my breakfast

then I come to the laundry room and get a towel and a flannel out of the cupboard, then have a wash – After tea I put the washing back in the laundry room.

I go in my room, get changed and watch tele.

It takes me a long time to pick things out of my wardrobe and choose what to wear. got favourite trousers, t-shirt and top.


In here, I’ve got pants, socks and some pyjamas.

I keep everything organised and tidy. I don’t like it when it is a mess!! (laughs)

Next, I like playing my Gameboy my favourite game is Pokemon.

Later, I get my book and take it downstairs to college.

My timetable is on it and my photograph.

Today is Thursday. Leisure room.

I go to the

We are going to Space

to do the illustrated book project.

In the afternoons I do Leisure like filming, poems, illustration.

I like Leisure

We make all sorts of things in Leisure. My favorite colour is red.

We do lots of things at college. I do writing and stuff. We use computers and I like letter writing. I write to my mum because she likes getting them. I also wrote a poem about the sun and the moon.

Hello Reception

Sometimes I work on reception (on reception using the lap-top) Writing (using speaking programme) My name is Liam Farnsworth, I am nineteen years old. (He answers the phone) Hello, reception.

I also like eating. I like pasta and I like cooking pasta with tomato sauce I cook a lot at Loppington in Life Skills. I also wash-up and dry up and make sure everything is clean.

but I don’t like salad

After college, I go to my room and listen to my music. Sometimes I can hear Lisa’s music next door - it’s loud. I go to her room and ask her to turn her music down. I do like music - I’ve got these. (cds) I listen to Abba and I read books sometimes like this one (“The Twits” – Roald Dahl)

I read some books and I do some writing and they normally call me when it’s tea time. After tea I like to watch tele. The programmes I like are Eastenders, Emmerdale and Big Brother.

After tea, we can do computer clubs, letter writing and aerobics (Liam touches toes and arms up and out)

And there’s Science and Nature on a Thursday night– natural disasters its like volcanoes and earthquakes, big waves, flooding

I have my supper, then have a wash and say goodnight to everyone. I put my pyjamas on and listen to music before I go to sleep .

I’m not scared of the dark, I like it dark

then I get out of bed and switch my light off.

At the weekend, I usually listen to music in my room Sometimes I have a lie-in. I like to go shopping on a Saturday. I buy chocolate and that’s because I like chocolate. Usually I go to Asda. It is a big shop but I know my way around and I like it when it’s busy. I just go with my mum in Tamworth.

I like spending time with other people at college. I didn’t have friends at my last school but I like Loppington. Because I’ve got friends, I’m happy
