Welcome to my posts for the A to Z Challenge 2016.
This year, I am posting
Special School Stories
tales from either my time as a teacher or teaching assistant within classrooms in the U.K. or from my own school days growing up around the country.
Nowadays in England, primary schools (age 4-11) have uniforms as well as secondary schools (12-18) but when I started primary school you didn't wear a uniform until you were older.
Navy skirt and navy jumper
Hung in the wardrobe
Beside white shirts
Navy tie with golden stripe
Practised a fortnight to tie it right
White socks and navy shoes
And downstairs a long navy mackintosh
Hung on the coat pegs in case of rain
This was my uniform for getting older
Secondary school conformity
Secondary school identity
Secondary school equality
Secondary school uniformity
What was your uniform like? Did you have to wear a proper tie and learn to tie it? Are you in favour of uniforms? You know I'd love to know :)
