A MOTHER of twin girls has described their joy at going back to school as lessons resume for children, who can now rejoin the offspring of non-key workers reports the BBC.
Parents of primary school children in reception, year one and year six have been allowed to choose whether or not to send their offspring back as part of the latest phase in the relaxation of the coronavirus lockdown.
Dee Aldrich from Harlow, has two five-year-old girls Poppy and Daisy in reception at Abbotsweld Primary Academy.
She said they were having an amazing time and the school had been great at keeping them socially distanced. She said the children managed to stick to the rules of no contact.
Out of the 15 in their class, only five went back, including Dee’s two.
“The twins are not working at home very well. They don’t want to do the work set for them. They’ve absolutely had a ball today,” she said.
“I am working from home full-time – I work as a legal secretary. The way the staff are structuring returning to school has been great.”
