Talking to Year 1 kids

We spoke to children in Year 1 about what, where, and how they like to learn. We found that their experiences of learning in kindy and Prep, compared with learning in Year 1, were quite different.

As part of the Listen! 200 Children’s Voices research project, we filmed our discussions with these children with the hope that it will improve the way in which we support transitions in between kindy, Prep and school. You can view the videos and find out more here.
