We will keep in contact on here regularly and set some special tasks for you.


A little message from all of us:

We know that at this time you may be feeling sad, 

You’re allowed to feel however you want so don’t think feeling this way is bad,

At this time you may be missing a special friend, 

And wondering to yourself when this will all end,

We don’t know the answer as much as we’d like to, 

But one thing is for sure, we can’t wait to see you! 

Try to keep yourself busy and learn something new, 

Take a look around there’s always something to do, 

If you’re feeling extra sad you might like to write or talk, 

Tell your trusted grown up and maybe take a walk, 

Complete as many tasks as you’d like to, 

But don’t feel stressed or worried if you don’t as there are other things to do, 

We hope that soon the time will come,

When once again we will see everyone!

A task that you may like do to today is write a letter, card, poem, story or draw a picture for your waste collectors. They have been working all over the Easter weekend as well as working continuously since the pandemic. I’m sure they’d love to receive a ‘Thank you!’ from you. 

Example poem 

Here’s a note just to say,

Thank you for all you do for us everyday, 

The efforts you go to to keep our world clean,

It’s with my own eyes that I have seen,

You work each day when the world is on hold,

To stop our old waste growing mould,

With your hard work and determination,

You have helped to save the nation,

During this sad and uncertain time,

You’re the unsung hero’s behind this rhyme,
Thank you today and each day too,

The world would be lost without people like you!
