Teachers and policymakers can be assisted in their work to construct an appropriate curriculum and pedagogic approach by gaining pupil's perspectives of their learning engagements. We have done our research for pupil's perspectives in schools and classrooms that exhibit creative teaching because the climate within them encourages children to express themselves openly and imaginatively. We have identified three areas of expression as being relevant to discerning primary children's perspectives, individual interpretations, social interactions and reflective evaluations. These areas are, at the same time, lenses for researching young children's perspectives and the data itself shows ways in which children develop their own creative learning. We conclude with some pedagogic proposals, based on research, for promoting creative learning and developing children's perspsectives.
