A primary school is an institution for children where they receive their basic education before they transfer to the next level of education. The area of educational activity in which primary schools operate is known as primary education. Primary school is the level of education that young children attend between kindergarten and 6th grade.
Primary school covers grades 1-6, or about ages five to twelve. Young kids are in primary school for this long because during these years they grow at a different rate than adults do. And by the time their growth has slowed down, it’s time for middle school. They put them in separate rooms to keep kids who are effectively still little living their childhood away from kids who are at an age where they’re just getting ready to move on with life–and that isn’t fair to either group.
Primary schools are sometimes divided into infant schools and junior schools, depending on pupils’ ages, with the transition from the former to the latter being automatic in many countries. Primary school is usually referred to as Elementary School, where public speaking/ instructions are given to students by teachers in Kindergarten to 5th grade. These instructions are what used to be called “elementary” or primary instruction.
According to Oxford Dictionary primary education or elementary school is a school for children between the ages of 4–11. Primary Education is an important part of every country’s educational system. The fundamental aim of primary education is to inculcate the habit of learning in the minds of children, thus producing disciplined minds who can participate effectively in society.
Primary education should help children develop a sense of dignity & individuality while developing in them habits of cooperation, justice, fair play, and thinking. Primary education should enable children to develop their latent talents, by providing a means of expressing their feelings & thoughts in appropriate ways through arts, crafts, and sports activities.
