A special set of circumstances due to Covid 19

A Special Set of Circumstances

Last week, our school closed our doors to all children except those of critical workers. We were advised that the safest place for our students was at home and so that was where we sent them; our Principal turning taxis away at the gates on Tuesday morning, imploring parents not to send children to school – for the first time, school was not safe. As a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities setting all our students have an EHC Plan and so could have been in school but we didn’t have the staff to remain open, nor the means to prevent the spread of the virus if we had.

Currently our stoic skeleton crew stands as two teams of three adults alternating each week to supervise and support four children of varying ages and needs. However, the recovery of some self-isolating colleagues and the rising boredom of others means that our rota and plans are now updated each day – the cause of many frustrated headaches. Those of us isolated by living alone are prioritised to be in to protect our well-being and reduce those potentially exposed such as whole families at home, we are lucky to have a leadership team that cares enough to consider these factors. On top of this and all other current sources of anxiety, the school feels sinister…

For years I have walked the empty corridors of schools in the mornings and evenings, on training days, strike days, and similar occasions. For years I have done this and felt the lingering sense of anticipation held within, contained in quiet classrooms and harnessed by skilled practitioners to become excitement for all the journeys and discoveries yet to be made. The learning that we look forward to. But now these silent hallways feel wrong, uncomfortable, as though the school itself is uncertain. I call my family in the evenings and tell them about my day “on the alien planet”.

And yet we are presented with a special set of circumstances. Based in our Early Years cabin we find ourselves experimenting with learning and activities; guided by the children, their curiosity and needs. As a school we aspire to implementing an Early Years format throughout the primary department and here we find ourselves doing so, in practice. Each day we explore our world through play and learn continuously as we do, even the eldest of our children (year 5). Is this a silver lining to the Covid Cloud, seeing the future of our learning style? The flexibility enabled by learning through play is allowing us to imagine new ways of learning at home for those staying away to stay safe, without piling pressure onto parents and carers. In our own way we are fighting against the virus, with play and positivity.

I hope to find excitement in seeing the success of this new teaching style, so that we may look forward to returning our school community to its home – to once again explore and learn together.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences through this blog. It is especially important to remember that special schools too are staying open during this difficult times and working with some of the most vulnerable and ‘at risk’ children in society.

    It must be hard to ensure continuity for both children and staff with changing rotas and this in itself is unsettling when you are on the front line.

    I thought your reflection on the school as being ‘an alien planet’ was very accurate. Certainly when out on the daily walk areas too seem eerie and alien and this must be even more apparent when you are working in settings and schools. I hope that you are also able to remember the sounds of wheelchairs zooming around and children’s voices too – these days will return, but when none of us know.

    I was so impressed though that within all of the difficulties of these days that it is giving you and your colleagues new opportunities of working with the children. The fact that you are focusing more on the children’s interests and needs was amazing. Also the fact that play was being used as a medium for supporting the children to understand this virus is such a positive move. The fact that something new may come out of this experience demonstrates the ability early years practitioners have to reflect on their work and make changes for the good. I hope that when your school is open again these experiences will shape your provision.

    Thank you again for sharing this blog.

  2. It’s wonderful to hear how this alien situation has led to adaptation and providing practitioners, even in special schools who often excel in individualised learning, with opportunities to experiment with more play based learning.
    I am sure the children you are working with will remember this as a very special time in their lives, and you and your stoic skeleton crew as the people who shared it with them.
    Thank you for sharing your story with all of us.

  3. Стоимость BTC поднялась на 3% за последние 24 часа, впервые за 365 дней подняв Биткоин выше отметки 12 тысяч долларов.
    Bitcoin еще далек от своего рекордного максимума в 20000 баксов, которого он достиг в конце 2017 года, но восстановление является признаком того, что BTC все чаще становится убежищем активов.
    Во времена экономической неопределенности инвесторы, обычно, обращаются к активам с фиксированным предложением, например gold, поскольку они не зависят от инфляции, такие как компенсация количеством.
    Торги по биткоинам в Южной Америке взлетает до небес на фоне эпидемии Covid-19
    Ограниченное количественное-во валюты – в обращении будет только 21 миллион биткойнов – означает, что он обладает похожими свойствами и иногда определяется как «цифровое золото».
    Раньше в этом месяце организация бизнес-аналитики MicroStrategy сообщила, что стала первой компанией, оформленной на Nasdaq, которая дала добро на биткойн в качестве главного запасного актива казначейства, использовав целых 250 миллионов USD из своей денежной массы для вложения в bitcoin.
    «Вложения отражают нашу веру в то, что BTC, как наиболее широко используемая в мире криптовалюта, является защищиенным средством вложения и привлекательным инвестиционным активом с более долгосрочным потенциалом роста, чем держать деньги в наличых», – заявил Майкл Сэйлор.
    С тех пор акции MicroStrategy подскочили более чем на 20% после объявления.
    В начале 2009 года был создан генезисный блок BTC. Это произошло менее чем через год после того, как основатель псевдонима Сатоши Накамото подробно описал криптовалюту в статье под названием «Биткойн: одноранговая система электронных денег».
    «Так как стремительный подъем биткойна продолжается, стоит помнить, что высокая цена BTC иногда может создавать психологический барьер розничному инвестору», – сказал The Independent Саймон Петерс из онлайн-инвестиционной платформы.
