Watching a comedy film for children at school?

No, laughter is not a human trait as Rabelais thought. Some animals like gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos also laugh.

In playful contexts, or under the influence of tickling, laughter is part of the social life of these animal species, especially the youngest.

In humans, too, childhood is a special time for laughter.
Children laugh much more often than adults. Like play, laughter is a natural learning tool and contributes to the sensory, emotional, relational and intellectual development of children.

Laughter creates a bond between teachers and children

At school, making people laugh reinforces the playfulness of learning.

Laughter is a direct expression of joy and proves to be an irreplaceable tool in the classroom as it creates a bond between teachers and children.

Our selection of comedy films makes both children and adults laugh.
Having common experiences, watching a comedy film together in the classroom and laughing at the same things with the pupils reinforce this necessary complicity.

Humour as a teaching tool

"We saw a funny little cartoon with the teacher!" What a pleasure for a child to "see his or her teacher laugh".

"We'll talk about it at the recreation!"

Laughter and moral education

Humour is subjective and people may not be sensitive to someone's humour. What may seem funny to some may be considered by others as mockery or insult. Laughter can be cruel.

Do not laugh at others

Laughter allows us to communicate but also to exclude.
Laugh with others but not at others.
Laughter and levity are not synonymous.
