I remember my first school, a nusery called Pinocchios in Lasswade, Dalkeith in Scotland :ahee: I met my childhood best friend there and my 'cousin'. I loved it there, I remember the bananas in pjama's computer game back when computers were absolutely massive, the slides and the coloured ice cream cones :laugh:

I often got sent home in nursery for refusing to make friends with any of the other children, crying for most of the time and for hitting teachers (on the lap).

Little did they know, I'm still the same, except it would hurt more if I hit them now

I have a lot of memories of reception so I'm not sure which came first, but I think I remember sitting in a row on the carpet during what must have been a wet break eating my snack. I think it was jammy dodgers - two of them wrapped in some cling film.

I'm thinking a lot about primary school memories thanks to this thread. Wow, I miss those days.

In reception we had a golden time reward system. On Monday we all started on an hour, but if we did something bad we lost 5 minutes of golden time for every bad thing we did (up to missing 15 minutes). Then on Friday afternoon we had an hour of golden time where we could play outside, play board games, or do drawing or something. I was quite well behaved, I often helped the teacher tidy up and stuff so I never really lost any golden time. Then one day I talked to my friend during show and tell and I lost 5 minutes of golden time. It seemed like such a big deal back then, I was an anxious child and I was worried about the teacher telling my parents or something like that. It happened at the beginning of the week, so I was worried about it for the whole week and I felt really embarrassed (irrational I know ). On the Friday morning, we had our class assembly and afterwards the teacher gave me my 5 minutes back because I did a good job. I never told my parents about it (but they wouldn't have cared because I was only like 4). I don't know why I remember that after nearly 12 years, it's just random I guess

Can't really go into a lot of detail due to personal reasons ... Starting nursery was difficult, I just wanted to go home and I was quite shy and scared really - apparently I was really cute according to some guy I knew who was in the year above me.

My first memory of school was probably when my best friend and I ended up being locked in a toilet together and having to bang on the door until the headteacher who's office was opposite wondered what all the banging was and had to get the maintenance team to unlock the door 😂😂😂😂😂😂 I have no recollection of why we went to the toilet together but yeah... we are still friends now and frequently joke about it 😂😂 especially as our teacher was not particularly fond of us and had a massive go at us for missing this girl bringing in her pet snails 😂😂😂

I can remember having to go on a bus because the new school for our area hadn't been finished. They sent us to another really old one which had toilets in an outdoor block! I only stayed there one term fortunately.

I never went to nursery so my first day of school was in reception. I remember getting a picture taken on my first day of primary in my new uniform and my brother in his high school uniform (he started year 7).I remember my brother, both parents and sister all being in the car in my first day of reception and I remember my mum talking to the teachers then telling me when both hands if the clocks were on the three she'd pick me up. When it got to home time that day, I was impatient and ran out in the rain to look for her and asked a female stranger if she knew where my mum was and my mum was inside reception, livid at the teachers but not me. Though she wasn't happy with me either.

Having to learn a head, shoulders, knees, and toes type song in French and not knowing the difference between my left hand and right hand. The teacher had to stop to try and explain it to me. Truth be told, I still have to remind myself about lefts and rights 20 some odd years later .
