    Carrying on from another thread what things do you remember from your early school days? I think some of the younger members might be shocked lol.

    i'll start with nitty nora, the nurse that would come to the school and check EVERY childs hair for nits. Not allowed now.:rolleyes:
     
  2. Yep! I remember Nitty Nora!

    I'll continue the thread with the eyes tests as mentioned! The nurse would come! you would stand in a queue! when it was your turn tyou placed your hand over you eye and read the letters from the board!!! I used to peep through my fingers as I could never see!

    I used to remember how cheap things were back then, you used to get sweets and crisps for 5p!!!

    And i used to go and get a potato fritter in a roll for 20p.

    I remember always wanting to be in the "Red house" for sports day but always was in the "green house" which was for the crap people!! :D

    Also rice pudding with a chocolate drop in the middle or a dollop of jam xx

    I remember getting milk at break time! loved it - with the little blue straws:D in infants school - and I remember doing all the collages where u used that white glue that you could peel off when it dried on your hands!
     
  9. School milk left in the playground in the blazing sun until morning break!! The silvertops almost always pierced by blue tits!
