and explain how you felt about it
When I was a child, the school that really sticks in my mind is the one nearest my home that I went to when I was about 7 years old. I think you’d call it a Junior School, in England. Anyway, it was a small school, in a small street not far from the Lama Temple in Beijing. I have fairly good memories of my days in this school, although we had to study really hard and it was quite strict. There were about 30 children in each class. Our main teacher was a very kind, but firm woman who also had a really good sense of humour. We learned to write Chinese characters, do basic mathematics and we learned a bit of painting, drawing, history and things like this. We also did physical education - some games and fitness activitiesin the playground. I really have good memories of my days in this school, and I got on quite well with my classmates and teachers. However, the one thing I didn’t like was the homework - we had way too much homework and I still resent the education system here a little bit for piling so much homework on us after school time! It was tiring and kind of stressful.
I went to XXXX primary school when I was six. It is just one block away from my home. The front gate of my primary school is fancy, which gives people a good first impression. Full sets of modern equipment are installed in every classroom. In primary school, I learned the foundation of math and natural science and basic English and Chinese. I was told to practice Chinese calligraphy in my primary school, which benefits me greatly in later study. I think the most important thing teachers tried to teach in the primary school in China is discipline. It is hard to say what it means to a single person but it is crucial to an organized society. If basic virtue and discipline are taught among young people, the purpose of primary school is well served.
