English as a Second Language/question

Question
Is this sentence correct? correct it if it is incorrect,
I have eaten my lunch and  went to school.

Answer
Hello Nilo,

I'd say:

I ate my lunch and went to school.
or
I have eaten my lunch and have gone to school.

Either way, the sentence feels incomplete...

I ate my lunch and went to school last Monday.
or
I have eaten my lunch and have gone to school while you were working on fixing the car.
