Three year 5 pupils express what it was like for them returning to the classroom after such a long time away. What an inspiration they are!
Student Voice – primary school children speak of recovery from lockdown
In our second interview with school children seeking their views on the events of the past year, we speak to three year 5 pupils who express what it was like for them returning to the classroom after such a long time away.
The children spoke candidly of ‘awkwardness’ with friends, the ‘sadness’ of not being able to see extended family members, and how ‘weird’ it felt to return to school yet remain in a bubble. Despite this, the children speak eloquently about what resilience means to them, and the strategies they use to stay confident, and to believe in themselves and their abilities.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these children, whose many wise words I am delighted to share with you in this episode.
