Social and Emotional Support

There are lots of things that will be a little different when we return to school. Remember you can ask your teachers if you have any questions, no matter how small!

We might notice that we:

• Are reminded to wash our hands regularly;

• Have our own equipment rather than sharing class resources;

• Are in smaller class groups and need to give each other space;

• Have play and lunchtimes at different times to other classes;

• Arrive and leave school at different times to other classes;

• Have a different teacher to normal;

• Have no assemblies;

• Have no whole-school dinner time.

However you feel about this, it is OK. You may feel the same way as some of your friends or you may feel differently about it. That is OK.
