41 Blasts From Your Primary School Past

Saying your prayers before lunch and at home time, getting your knees grazed and changing your best friend every other term. It can only be… Primary School.¬†What seemed like such a special world at the time was actually the same world for every kid in the country. ALL UK primary schools were pretty much exactly the same.

1. You knew it was going to be a good PE lesson if the beloved apparatus was out


2. When a dog ran into the school playground and all you could do was run around screaming that the dog has rabies


3. That Roamer that you programmed to go forward 4 steps and turn 90 degrees left and then you got bored


4. When you hung around after the bell for FOREVER because little Jonny hadn’t put his chair up and the teacher was just ‘waiting’.


5. All the angels had tinsel halos and the shepherds had tae towels on their heads at the school play
