Description Between both learning and teaching processes, there is an ongoing relationship showing specific teaching and bidirectional relationships between teachers and their students. The teachers can influence their communication and interactions with students in a very favourable or, on the contrary, unfavourable way. Speaking about the area of attitudes and values shaping the relationship between teachers and their pupils, the article focuses on the part of subjective assumptions concerning pupils’ progress when working with specific materials—aerial and satellite image and map interpretation. The survey respondents were primary school teachers and primary school students aged 11 and 15. Teachers and pupils’ subjective assumptions were mutually compared; subjective assumptions were compared with objective data—the test results concerning pupils’ work with image data. The survey has proved that (1) there is a strong correlation between the teachers’ assumptions concerning the difficulty to interpret an image by themselves and the assumption concerning the difficulties encountered by their pupils; (2) the pupils’ assumption concerning the difficulty when working with some material (satellite images in false colours) significantly differs from the objective success rate: students expect very difficult tasks whereas they are actually very successful; (3) the teachers and students differ about their opinion concerning the use of satellite and aerial images during the teaching process; the teachers declare a higher level of significance than students; (4) the teachers expect the satellite and aerial image data to be far more attractive than the pupils expect.
