My dream day

My name's Lucy. My favorite singer is called Jimmy B. He's very famous and when he was younger he was a student at our school. Our music teacher knows Jimmy B and asked him to visit us. He said, "yes" and last Tuesday he came to our school. I was very excited on that day and I couldn't wait to see Jimmy B. I went into the music room with all the other students and sat down. Jimmy B came into the room and talked to us about how he started singing and playing rock music. Then he sang his new song, "Summer time". It was great!

After Jimmy B left we went back to our classrooms for our afternoon lessons. While I was in my maths lesson, the music teacher came in and asked to see me and my friend Mary. My music teacher said that a journalist from our town’s newspaper wanted to talk to some students about Jimmy B's visit to our school. We couldn't believe it! We went to the school office where we answered some questions and the journalist took a photo of us. Yesterday my mum showed me our town newspaper. On the front page, there was a picture of Jimmy B and a picture of me and Mary! It was like a dream!
