Change your questions- What do you do after school?

I got a chance to meet children, and the questions I posed seemed the same which I was asked by elders at my childhood. To my questions, I got the same response which I used to give without any excitement. I didn't want to answer those questions when I asked. Now, I don't want other children to feel the same.

Which class are you?
What school do you go to?

Instead of the question series which I have nothing to do, I changed the questions.

What do you love to do after school?
And asked the questions related to the work s/he's interested in.
