I know most kids would say that their school is the best, but when I say it, I am speaking the utmost truth.

My school, Dorothy Barley Juniors, is in Ivinghoe Road, Dagenham. We have lately extended our school pond, so now it is twice the original size.

Everybody in the school participates in keeping the pond clean and pleasant.

In summer we are going to use it as an outdoor classroom. This would have never happened, of course, without James Davis, a teacher in my school.

He is also my teacher amd an interesting one at that! We have an excellent curriculum and the teachers always make learning fun.

Thanks for reading. I hope you pick my school.
