The Secret Life of 5 Year Olds

The children’s sense of fairness is put to the test in the first of two specials of The Secret Life of 5 Year Olds

This charming series returns for two special episodes.

The first is all about right and wrong and whether a group of five-year-olds knows the difference – and how they feel when someone breaks the rules or those rules are unfair.

The first game tests how quick they are to cheat when left to their own devices. Some take seconds, while others not only stick to the rules but make sure their young friends do, too.

In fact, in all the games set by teachers Kate and Simon, it’s astounding how caring and empathetic the children are. As little Nathaniel says, ‘If you don’t share, God will get angry and Theresa May will get angry.’ Quite!
