Though I am no professional, what you described sounds like normal child behavior to me. Running, playing, and jumping are all things most kids do when they’re young. You also explained that you “didn’t do most of your work or didn’t like to”, to me that sounds like you weren’t interested in learning which isn’t out of the ordinary for most children. Before I was diagnosed, my teachers used to get really frustrated with me because I would walk around the classroom, never finish my work, and I was always daydreaming. I wouldn’t say you were lazy or that you had ADHD. I think you just didn’t have activities and teachers that were boring to you, so you didn’t want to pay attention.
But like I said, I’m no professional. If you’re really curious you can always go check with a doctor.
