Some letters about School Uniform

School uniform is something that divides opinion. Before Mounts went off to Croft Farm we wrote a letter to the incoming Headteacher to express our opinions and persuade her that the school uniform should be kept or scrapped:

Louisa’s War Diary – Enlistment day

Dear Diary,

Today I signed up for the war. This is what happened.

I walked down to the town hall and I signed up while my sister was signing up to work in the factory.

I got my uniform and a shilling and I was told to get changed straight away if I wanted to be one of the soldiers walking round the town.

My sister made me do it because she didn’t want me her brother to be someone with a white feather. I was OK and excited at the time especially about the shilling, but now I’m really scared.

When I was marching it was embarasing but it was worth the shilling, especially because it was Billy, Nick, Joe and me.



Louisa’s Confession

My Mistake
I made a mistake by giving a stranger
my house number….
I made a mistake when I didn’t let
the dog out to doodle….
I made a mistake when I said to
my hamster it could swim in the
I made a mistake when I put my
fish in the toilet….
I made a mistake when I pressed
a button that said do not press….
