RE the recent articles and letters in The Bugle on open air schools and convalescent homes.
I was a pupil at such a school all through my junior school years.
Lessons were very poor. Our only maths lessons comprised learning times tables.
This meant that when I went to Smethwick Hall School I struggled to catch up. Even to this day I don't understand fractions.
I went to Blackwell Convalescent Home. I don't know where that is, apart from in the Midlands
I don't remember much about it, only being taken for walks and two boys ran away.
I don't know what happened to them. The only other thing we were given was medicine, which I remember one tasted just like liquorice.
