i was just reading in my local paper about kids brushing up on oral hygiene and it bought back a very old memory for me. Does anyone else remember, at primary school, when they got given the toothbrush, some toothpaste and that little pink tablet you had to suck on and where you teeth weren't properly clean, they shone bright pink???? i remember being terrified of having bright pink teeth!!!!!!! anyone got any other funny memories from school like this one of mine?

God, this has really taken me back. What about those black plimsoles for PE, and the days that if you forgot your kit, you did it in your vest and knickers...PE that is - and no-one thought there was anything wrong with it!
The smell of cress always reminds me of being back in infants, and growing it in cotton wool on the windowsill, and a carrot top on a saucer of water!!!
The small bottles of milk were fab unless you got one with a load of manky cream on - urgh!!!
I remember those vienesse biscuits though that were 5p at the tuck shop at break time - they were lush!!!
Also remember when if you fell and cut yourself, a teacher would put a plaster over the cut for you - now they cant even do that!
Thes best thing about christmas time was getting to play chuckie egg and chuck rock on the computer if you'd had enough stars through the year for good work!
I'm gonna go and raid the attic for any old school books!!!! Those were the days eh??? Thanks for the nostalgia hit unruliejulie x
How many stars did you get? Or are you just looking for a row? :)
I can remember nits but i think the pink tablet thing is way before my time .. lmao ;o)

grumpii, im only giving stars to those who answer my question! sorry crete, unless you have a story to tell, ya getting nowt! :-)
I remember the two little camp beds so that you could have a nap in the afternoon.
Also there was a wendy house with a scaled down iron and ironing board etc. , I'd never seen anything like it ( it WAS the 60s tho' !! )
And I didn't work out till years later how the teacher did it when she told us we were going to watch a programme on TV and it came on when she said it would. I thought she had special powers.
But I'll never forget when she said we had to do something, and " woe betide " anyone who didn't. It sounded like nothing I'd ever heard before and the fear it instilled in the little 5 year old me !!!

lol caz, do they launder the lost property in schools, before they hand them out to other kids? :) (sorry unrulie)
It was well before my time the pink tablets but my mum told me about them and let me try one that shed kept from school!I used to love the little bottles of milk we were given- drinking fullfat blue top milk reminds me so much of them!
Does anyone ever remember being good and being allowed to play "Grannys Garden" on the RM Nimbus computer?!!!
Not really a funny memory but i saw someone getting the cane across their hands :o(
Did your school tip sawdust over a pile of puke??
Milk was ok til winter when it was frozen solid LOL!!
We were never given toothbrushes, maybe that was either before or after my time in school.
I do remember the huge navy gym knickers though !!!!!
I liked the milk , though it could be icy in the winter.
Did any of you learn to read with Janet and John and Chicken Licken ?
