Well i have survived my first day of teaching (i use that term very loosely) and no tears have been shed, yet.

DD had Spanish, Maths and English, which thanks to the teachers involved, had very clear instructions.
DS had Physics, German and PE. DH oversaw the Physics (it ain't my strongest subject), and i did the other two. DD and i then went outside and sowed some lettuce and broad beans, whilst DS washed his Go Kart.

No bribery was involved and i'm hoping tomorrow will be as uneventful.

Definitely tougher with the younger ones. The most important thing is for the to feel safe and have a little bit of structure to their day, but also to have some fun and smile.

Doesn't that show that little ones go into School far too early?  Don't they learn to play  :-\ and occupy themselves? 

Some Schools remained open yesterday and two pupils turned up.  From different homes.  For goodness sake, they should all be in School not pick and choose, staff won't know if they are expecting 1 or 100s  ::)

Four children playing in the playground at the school across the road at lunchtime not much social distancing going on but I suppose it's hard to police when the children are between 4 and 7.

Just the odd dog walker up and down the road.

Cousins playing together, I could hear them screaming and chasing each other. At least they seem healthy  ::) and if they are altogether daily ......  what's the difference than being in School  :-\

. At least if you have a garden you can send them outside with a ball.
Mother from hell here. Mine is sent outside with a shovel, she might as well do something useful   ;D

Sounds like my type of schooling  ;D - anyone remember Nature Walks - our teacher would put us into twos holding hands when we got a bit rowdy in class  ::)

Is it Joe Wicks that they are exercising with?

One of my nieces has been working in a school kitchen since she had the kids but is actually a dental nurse.  She was asked to work in the kitchens for a few days preparing food for children of keyworkers.  She finished yesterday as there weren't enough kids there.

We had 5 children at the beginning of the week but thats gone down to 2 now. The key workers have made other provision. The 2 left are vunerable children but dont need to come in everyday.  I'm working from home now as I can remote into my computer, something I've never done as I always liked to keep my work life separate, but it's now keeping me busy and sane during lockdown.
