She couldn’t watch TV so she went to bed. 0 One awful day her father discovered their plans and he ordered her to leave school. 0 When I was six,my mum and my father enrolled me at elementary school. 0 School started at 8:30 and finished at 12:30 p.m. I returned home, I had lunch and I played with my mum and my sister. 0 At night I watched TV and at the end of day, at 8:00 p.m. I had dinner.
