Primary school days may seem like a lifetime ago for most of us, but for those who have treasured their school memorabilia, those early years can feel like only yesterday.
Those first days at school are a time of firsts for any child – the first time they write their name, win a certificate or embark on a school trip.
Pictured here are a class of pupils from Whaddon Junior School in 1965, which are noted as being 10 years of age.
The school closed in 1992 but, to celebrate a century of education in Whaddon, it was widely remembered during a week of activities.
Tuffley Primary School hosted the commemorative activities and the local area united to celebrate the advancements made in Whaddon since the mid-20th century.
Were you in this class? Can you spot a family member in the picture?
Meanwhile, pupils of St Mark’s Junior School in Gloucester might recall Dr John Ruffell.
During his time as headteacher, he introduced many changes to the school and ensured the pupils’ involvement extended into the local community in a way they enjoyed.
In these photographs, students are trying their hand at basket weaving, right – an alternative way of taking part in arts and design work. The day also involved looking after pets which can be seen in the picture, left.
Standing around the hutches, they each held Guinea pigs, hamsters or rabbits and learned about their natural habitat, sleeping and eating habits.
Not your conventional classroom day, the year group spent the day outdoors.
Were you one of the pupils who enjoyed an interesting day at St Mark’s Junior School? If, so do you know the year?
