ABOUT KATE’S HOUSE

My name is Kate Pavlenko. I live in Ukraine in a small cosy town. In this town there are some streets and lanes. And in these streets and lanes there are many houses – big and small.

I live in a many-storeyed house. In front of my house there is a big shopping centre. My mum usually does the shopping there. There is also a playground behind my house. I like it a lot. My friends and I like to play there in summer. And in winter there is a big skating rink. Girls adore skating, and boys enjoy playing hockey there.

In summer there are beautiful flowers around. We help our mothers to plant and water the flowers. I think it’s good to live in a small town. Everything is so near! Do you agree?
