On Tuesday evening (10th February) at 8pm on Channel 4 there is an interesting TV programme – The Secret Life of 4 Year Olds.
It is an observational documentary that follows ten four-year-old children at nursery – the nursery is rigged with cameras and microphones to capture all their play and interactions. You can read an interview neuroscientist Dr Paul Howard-Jones about the programme here.
You can also see some clips from the programme here – clips. (teaching a song, the chocolate cake test and den building)
I’m sure this will be an interesting to watch for all of us involved in education, whether in early years or in other age phases.
