We must have been in the same year as I also left in 71. My maiden name was Short and we lived in the prefabs on Wensley Drive till about 68.

Hi wallace. We must have been there at the same time! I've just revisited grimesthorpe junior school. Didnt go to owler lane secondary but my late husband did (Dick, later known as richard). He was quite well known.

Mr Langley - really tall man with dark glasses nicknamed me Wendy Wobbles (I was overweight)
Miss Boyd.. later married and became Mrs Cundle....our classroom was in prefabs at the back she used to read to us on the grass round the back I was devasted when she moved away. She gave us her address to write..don't think i ever did Muskoka Avenue..I thought it was the other end of the country..many years later found it is other side of Sheffiled. I still have the Black Beauty Book she gave me when she left....a treasured possession..wonder is she is still around and realises she had such and impact? I have always had great love of reading since and passed to my daughters.
Mrs Jackson....as well as Mrs Cundell the reason I went into teaching late in life...what an actress she was! Purple suits, black wigs and cartwheels down the classroom.
Langley was evil mrs jackson was ok most of the time but when she was mad god help us mr Boreham was Hitler reincarnated lol

I've recently revisited the school with mixed feelings, though mostly good.

Hi southweller

I remember your names. I was in a class with kenneth barraclough and john dyson, amongst others. I shared a desk with jennifer hall. We were split up because we talked too much and were always messing about. Didn't work because we caused mayhem shouting across the room to each other. We are still friends to this day!
