This week in France children are back to school. It was the same for English and Welsh children, although the poor kids only started their holiday on the 17th July. In Scotland the “wee bairns” (the little children in Scottish slang) were off school from the 27th June to the 16th August. This is because Scotland has its own education system and examination board.
Here is a video of Shone who is about to start secondary school. She tells us about some differences between primary and secondary school and how she’s getting ready for this big change.
