Rydal Penrhos Daily Notes – June 5
Day 53 from Rydal Penrhos school’s keyworker childcare provision – 14 pupils, 8 staff
It’s a sign of the times, literally!
All around the school site, there are signs that help us remember to socially distance, to wash our hands, to use hand sanitiser and to sneeze into our elbows.
I’m not sure if they serve to help or to alarm but either way, they are important and necessary.
It’s interesting to note the keyworker pupil reactions to these signs, comments include:
- What does that say? (a 3-year-old)
- Do I have to sit on the tape, it might stick to me! (a 5-year-old)
- Boring! I know how to wash my hands! (an 8-year-old)
- Rub a dub dub, scrub a dub scrub ( a 3-year-old)
- Mrs Davies, someone has put sticky tape on your benches! (a 4-year-old)
- Will anything actually happen if we step over the tape? ( an 11-year-old with a sense of humour).
- Is this tape bio-degradable? (another 11-year-old, said with an accusatory tone)
- Don’t they have any rainbow tape? ( a 6-year-old) Now there’s a missed business opportunity!
It’s the spring of 2020 reality, no-one knows how long it will last, and we’re all getting used to it.
As I have frequently said in this blog…one day at a time.
