Syrian kids talk to us about their hopes for the future

Newsround asked a group of kids from a school in Bury, in the north of England, to tell us what they would ask Syrian children, affected by the war in their country, if they could speak to them.

The war in Syria has been going on for almost four years now, and around ten million people have had to flee their homes.

The children from Syria that we spoke to are just some of the refugees who had to leave their homes to avoid the fighting.

They now go to a school in the Jabal al-Taj area of the capital city Amman in neighbouring country, Jordan.

British kids give us their reactions

They spoke about their lives before the war, what they want to be in the future, and what they do in their spare time.

After watching their answers, the British children thought about what they had heard from the Syrian refugees, and how it compares to their lives in England.
