Memorable Stories From Your English Primary Books!!! by Rapmoney(m): 4:57pm On Oct 19, 2013
Sometimes we tend to drift away to way back...primary school days when you would be called out by the class teacher to read a passage from the English text.

Some stories would still be fresh in your memory. I believe every generation has its time. For those that were of the classes of the 80's to early 90's when English primary books such as Mc Milian and Oxford were still commonly used, I hail una well well! I can't easily forget stories like Agbo, the son of Mr Malaika who live in the town of Lagoon, close to Ibadan (we shouldn't forget that his father gave him a wrist watch which he was very proud of) or Obi and Nneka who joined Boys Scout and Girls Guide respectively and were in primary six.

pls post yours jooor....

Edet in calabar pry 2. Wakama (i hope i got the spelling right) and emeka who were athletes in their school pry4.
I can't help but remember Audu (pry1) who wanted to get a bush rat he forgot in their farm; late in the night when he and his father were halfway home already. Mehn that part where he saw the old man with a load who called him for help was our CLASSIC HORROR STORY then in school...

Nonso, that of Wakama, Kunle, Emeka and Odion is pry 5. The story you mentioned about Audu is pry 2 Mc Milian ...that should be Ali and Simbi. I still remember calling some few girls in my class 'Simbi' because of the similar hairstyle. Good old days.

oh! The thing is my school didn't follow the usual pry1-6 school system. I finished pry sch in pry 5 and hence our macmillan readers was always a class ahead. Thanks for pointing that out. beats me how i didn't recall that while typing the initial post.
