    Well..... I did and I got the response of Waterloo road which I felt is a little inappropriate, especially for an observation.

    Errrr the ones my year 6 like are all what I would call inappropriate. Waterloo Road and Little Britain seem to be the top favourites. Come Dine with Me is ok with the more able ones.
  5. Inappropriate ones i get are (from my Y5's) Benidorm, Celebrity Juice and Shameless

    Children these day..... When I was that age I think I was still watching programs such as turtles, arthur and the worst witch. What about if I was to focus the characters from a film such as pirates of the carribean or Harry potter?

    Just pluck for something from Nickleodeon or Disney.

    Wizards of Wavery Place
    Pair of Kings

    or even something like Dr Who.

    I would maybe choose a different lesson?

    My year 6s would think most cartoons babyish. They like south park and bart simpson, but I find both of those unacceptable for children their age.

    If you don't mind me asking. How old (ballpark figure will do) are you? I can't see what problem you would have with The Simpsons.
  10. Doctor Who is probably a good option, and Spongebob always seems to be a favourite even at that level.
    On the other hand, you may have better luck with films. Perhaps the Narnia series that is relatively new?
