8 year old’s Covid School

“I like playing with lego and designing different models, and I like playing with my Mum’s phone to make funny movies. My Dad told me about a challenge to design a classroom for covid. I decided to do a school with lego characters and make a film on imovie.

I thought about how many people are in my school. There are 500. So, I thought that each day there would be a hundred people at school, and they could use inside, outside and online. Then I wrote down my ideas as a script, and made the film in our garden. I put all the clips together, and recorded the script and added some music. It was fun.

I would like to go to a school like the one in my movie!”
