Welcome back to primary school or nursery


The short video below was made for the re-opening of schools and nurseries from 1 June 2020.

It shows families how children can learn and have fun together while still staying safe from coronavirus.

When returning to school:

  • we must wash our hands regularly for 20 seconds
  • mum and dad must say goodbye at the entrance and not come in
  • some children may start their day earlier or later than others
  • there will be more space to spread out in class and the building
  • some lessons maybe outside when the weather is nice
  • everything will be kept clean
  • we will keep our 2 metres distance from others
  • we can smile and wave at others to show we care
  • we will have fun but without sharing or hugs or hi-fives for now!
