Walkley History

News, events and discoveries of the Walkley Ways, Walkley Wars history project.

School Then and Now

School 1953

Walking to school in my bruised and battered shoes.

My coat as thin as paper making me colder.

Wearing my fingerless gloves my Nan knitted me last week.

Breathing smoke into my lungs.

My shorts are making my legs get itchier and itchier

At school the boys are playing football, the girls skipping.



Stuck in the back seat of my mum’s car on my psp

Get in school and see Mr Magi watching for any trouble.

Talking my new i-phone 5s to the office.

In maths we to need use our i-pad

In ICT we all use touch-screen computers

After my mum picks me up in her brand new Audi R8

Get home and play on my ps3.

For tea I go to KFC.

Get home and watch Avengers Assemble  

My brother is wearing his tracksuit to go free running.

I go to bed I lay on my new vibrating bed

I wake up and I have a message on my phone

Pop tots for breakfast and a drink of pure orange juice

For lunch I go to Subway, sandwich with a cola

Back on my ps3 to play online

2 new games to play

Back down stairs to watch TV

After in to bed for a cosy night.
