We have all been there and experienced the Primary school life, and what an amazing time it was. Looking back now it all seems so sweet and innocent, you would go about your day completely oblivious to what is happening around you, consumed within your own little world. Those were the days.

Here are 33 things that everyone did whilst at Primary School.

1. Spending the whole of your primary school life trying to get your gooey alien pregnant
