The Classroom and School
Tom’s school day begins in the playground, which is reached by entering the gate in the walls that mark the school grounds off from the streets and surrounding housing estates. Playing freely whilst they wait for lessons to begin, children congregate in the playground five or ten minutes before school begins at 9 o’clock. Parents and carers stay with the younger children until the bell sounds, which signifies that it is time for parents to hand responsibility for their children over to the teachers until the school day ends at half-past-three. Older children often make their own way to and from school, sometimes having responsibility for younger siblings too.
