I'm sure in infant school the teacher used to get out little beds and tell everyone to lie down for a rest [Highfield school]. I'msure she got the most benefit though.

When I was at infant school they didn't give us a nap, exact opposite actually, daydreaming was strictly banned as was yawning etc

Enforced with aggressive shouting and nasty smacking

TTS - a fair bit of that went on at my school too. Terrifying for infants.

Erin. Do you know what Popeye did when Moses went to Mount Olive?

Many moons ago about 1953 I spent a little while at St Oswalds pre school, I clearly recall small beds were erected after lunch and we had to have a nap. I don't think I ever slept as I was too in awe of the nuns. I also recall another little girl called Adrienne and we sheared our snacks we had to take with us.
