Dear leo, and the rest 😳. Thanks for your great advice.
Just come and spend a day with us and then you might think twice.
Please wash your hands on entry. Sit on a carpet tile.
Now shush! Here come the children. Please greet them with a smile.
Hello and welcome back, my loves. You’ll see some things have changed.
Yes, Charlie,Our room looks different. We’ve had to rearrange
The desks, the toys, the books and games, the paints and pencil pots..
No, leo!!Sit back down again and don’t move off that spot.
Now listen carefully, my loves. I’m going to try and seat us
In a safe and special place, with space between: two metres.
But, Miss! I never sit just here. I always sit by josh
I know that, Charlie, but now you can’t. Just blame Coronavirus.
Help, Miss! My head is itching! Can you see if I’ve got bugs?
Yes, Lizzie. Please, oh please, stand still. Where are my plastic gloves?
No, Ellie, Please put that ipad down. It’s not been cleaned with dettol.
And don’t touch doorknobs, spades or bikes. The virus lives on metal.
Miss! Can I have the dressing-up? I’m playing Spiderman!
No, Jacob, you can’t. I’m sorry, but all soft toys have been banned.
Please, Jack, can you wipe your nose? We need to stay alert.
Oh, no. Please use a tissue, love! Don’t wipe it on my skirt.
Miss, look! I’m on a pirate ship! I’m climbing, out of reach.
No, Zach,You’re not allowed on there. It can’t be cleaned with bleach.
Miss! Where’s the box of Lego ‘coz I want to build a farm?
I’m sorry, Heidi, but that’s gone too as small toys cause great harm.
They can’t be cleaned enough you see and will be full of germs.
Yes, Ellie! You’re right! I know I said that when you play, you learn.
Miss! Conors spitting water out, all over my lunch tray!
Oh! Can you get a fresh one and a disinfectant spray?
Miss! I can’t find the playdough and I want to make some worms.
Sorry, Jake. It’s in the bin. It’s full of nasty germs.
No, Jamie!!Give that bottle back as it belongs to Lily.
What? Yes, I know she’s being kind. Now’s not the time to share.
Yes! I know that sharing’s good. It’s contradictory..
Julia!! Please stop hugging Eva like that. Miss! Taylor’s done a wee.
Lily-Ella, please don’t chew that pen, as Ellie sucked it too.
Miss! Can you come and help me? I just did a huge great poo!
Ok! Stand in your safe space and I’ll don my PPE.
And Jacob, please don’t chew that book. You’ll be the death of me.
No, our school trip’s cancelled and our play and disco too.
And Heidi, Julia Ellie and Emme, will you stop swapping shoes?
Miss! Come and see the castles that I’m building in the sand!
Oh sorry, Eva, You can’t play there. It’s germy, so it’s banned.
What? Ava,s slipped and cut her knee? Oh yes! There’s lots of blood.
Have we got a plastic apron and another pair of gloves?
Miss, I’m scared coz my Mum said, to Nan and Auntie Joyce,
That’s school’s not safe? She’s got to work. She hasn’t got a choice.
And now I’m here. It’s not the same. Just not what I remember.
And Daddy said it’s dangerous and to stay home ‘til September.
I just don’t understand it and my head is in a muddle.
I know you said two metres but please, can I have a cuddle?
Oh Children! Please stop crying now. What don’t you understand?
Just stay alert, six foot apart and wash your flipping hands!
So leo and the rest ...I hope you’ve enjoyed your stay?
There’s nothing to it, is there? It’s just child’s play.


Thus is just amazing by local boy Adam 😀

This is the simple story of a 10 year old boy having to play on his own during the lockdown and looking forward to the day when he can meet and hug his frien...

Readers reveal: How was the opening of Denmark's schools and kindergartens? I was crying in fear, admitted one Local reader of her feelings when dropping off her child at kindergarten on Wednesday. But most foreigners seemed impressed by the way the authorities managed the start of Denmark's reopening, according to The Local's survey.
