‘Big School Blues’ features Moss Hey Primary School in Stockport, where pupils voice their worries about going to big school. They spend a day at nearby Bramhall High to see what it’s like for themselves and are given the chance to ask questions like ‘Will I get my head pushed down the toilet?’.
‘In Our Meal Deal’, twins Sam and Nathan make a video diary about what they eat and tell us about the pact they have made with their mother to achieve a balanced diet.
