As the Zaatari refugee camp near the Syrian border continues to grow attempts are made to keep the huge numbers of children in education.
Schools are provided by a mix of Jordanian authorities and charities as well as international bodies such as the UN and EU.
A new school funded by the European Union was opened earlier today. The EU Commissioner opening the classes said:
"These children have to feel they have friends who care. It is impossible to make any refugee camp child-friendly but we are keen to try to help to bring at least some sense of comfort or normalcy for them."
