My cousin and I had to start school a half year earlier than our parents expected because the school was going to close due to lack of numbers. less than 12 so off we went and played with plasticine. I could read and write because of my Big Sis and I never could do my sums.

It always felt so invigorating that first day of school with so much excitement and hopes for the school year.

Growing up with a flushing toilet, I never thought about the toilets of school. I do not recall anything at school scaring me.

Re: Naut

Mom taught me to read, so I taught my sons to read long before they went to school.  Teachers didn't like that and sons also had problems from boredom, especially Son #1 and Son #3.  They didn't do boredom well.  Son #2 was not well through early school years so he just played little games at his desk.  Son #4 was a doll and everyone liked him, even the teachers.

You remind me...

When my sister in law started kindergarten, she was so excited that first day, up early with the new clothes and all, and the lunch box... Came home full of wondrous tales... Next morning, when they woke her up to go to school, she said, "Again...?"

Great stuff! You certainly remember a lot more than I do. In my case Kindergarten was a half-day thing, was conducted in a large house rather than anything resembling a school, and mainly was an occasion to play with a new set of kids instead of those in my neighborhood. It wasn't a big deal... The trouble began when I started Grade 1! Mom had taught me to read sometime around four years of age, and I was as surprised the others couldn't read as the teacher was that I could. (I think Mom forgot to tell her, although matters were discussed a little later, LOL.) I wasn't interested in the 'reading material' that introduces kids to reading (Mom had never used that), and there were disciplinary problems...
