What the children say...
"I like the slide because sometimes I do get very nervous of talking, so it kind of encourages me" - Jane, Year 2
"I like the seesaw because I like strong questions because my brain is thinking and I'm saying in my mind 'oh, I didn't think of that'" - Lucy, Year 2
Caleb: Your brain gets to think about something that’s really hard, like the Jack and the Beanstalk one, that was really hard
Laura: Was that all right that it was really hard?
Lucy: Kind of, because your brain gets warmed up
I liked the Crowsnest at the end because it gave you a chance think back on everything you've done - Sky, Year 2
I liked the Swing because it's just one of the most active...it's one of the best philosophy sessions - Henry, Year 2
What the teachers say...
“you think ‘oh, little children, they can’t’. But they can, can’t they!”
I think that the pictures really help them a lot...they really loved the slide, didn't they.
- Mrs Johnson, Year 2 teacher
