Child’s view: My world

In this video you'll hear from Alex, Bella, Christina and Freddie from Evendons Primary School, discuss their thoughts about school.

Children have to be physically and emotionally in the right place to learn, but that’s not to say they can’t have good and bad days, just like adults. We need to celebrate the fact that children know and understand a lot more than we sometimes give them credit for.

In this video Alex, Bella, Christina and Freddie from Evendons Primary School, share their thoughts about:

  • The atmosphere and environment in the classroom
  • Break and lunch
  • Teaching
  • Food
  • Sleep

Consider the following questions as you watch the video, is there anything that surprised you? Has listening to the children changed your view of children and of school?
