If I were in a classroom today, I wouldn’t run it too differently from the way I ran it all those years ago [20 years]. I’d want it to be a stimulating place, filled with colour and interest. I’d want my pupils to enjoy coming to school. I’d want them to interact positively and sensitively, and to feel what they were doing was worthwhile. And I’d want every child to feel the excitement of acquiring knowledge and fulfilling whatever potential they have.
