Working from home
Please click on the links below for guidance on helping your children during their time at home as we all recognise how challenging life during this pandemic can be.
Looking Forward to Normal Days…
Face masks in shops become the new law,
Rubbing in hand cream because sanitised hands are sore.
Catching a sneeze in your elbow,
Standing outside shops in a patient row.
Watching the news every night,
Wishing you could hug your loved ones tight.
Video chats from your cosy settee,
Zooming friends we’re not allowed to see.
No walking around the classroom, remain in your red chair!
Missing classmates, wishing they were there.
Studyladder, Mathletics and online work,
Cleaning our computers where the virus might lurk.
Elbows have quickly become our new fingers,
For doors and buttons where some germs linger.
Sanitising gel, wipes and spray,
For a life back to normal we hope and pray.
Games of tig banned from the yard,
Time in school decorating key worker cards.
Less cars are on the street,
Disney Plus is on repeat.
Shops, pubs and restaurants are shut down,
Empty trams and buses travel around town.
Classes become bubbles made of ten,
You are not allowed to share your pen.
Birthdays in back gardens with home-made cake,
New things we’ve learnt such as how to bake.
Checking the weather to see the sun,
Thursday claps for all the NHS has done.
Groups of 6 allowed outside,
But make sure you’re stood 2m wide!
Walking much more to exercise each day,
Social distancing affects how we play.
Remember when toilet paper and pasta sold out?
Planes sat in empty airports… nobody about.
Holidays and trips put on hold,
Cleaning supplies always being sold.
Doctors and nurses working through the night,
Windows full of rainbows shining bright.
Life has changed in lots of ways
We’re counting down until normal days…
