Pupil’s view: My world

In this video you'll hear from Aiden, Freddie, Lana and Ellie from Hurst Community College, discussing their thoughts about school.

Pupils 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 pupils know and understand a lot more than we sometimes give them credit for.

In this video Aiden, Freddie, Lana and Ellie from The Hurst Community College, share their thoughts about:

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

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