I couldn't stand it when my class went into self isolation. I definitely didn't enjoy it...

I found it quite hard self-isolating because I could not go in the park and play. But my class missed a week and we have never had a whole year at school and we have just finished year 1. But at least me and Mummy could play hopscotch in the garden which was fun. Doing google classroom and sending my work was fun though. Writing to my teacher telling her some things like hello for the first time was fun.

It was fine because I got to spend more time with my family but I missed school and my friends.

I hated being so alone. I really don't like being stuck with other people. We have I tiny garden, I could barely go outside, but we had some big walks and bike rides. Sometimes your family can really be boring, just having them to see and talk to. Although, it could have been much worse for me. At least I was able to Skype my friend - we played games like charades. My teacher lived just across the road and she is SUPER DOOPER nice. She also has two young children and we all played together. We even made lemon shortbread. they also had a bigger garden. (Yipee!!!!!)

It was fine because I got to go online, which was mostly fun, but doing it for a huge amount of time became boring after a while.

Hmmm...
Well, I am homeschooled so I haven't actually self-isolated before, but I can tell you my experience with lockdown!

In my opinion, I found lockdown all right, as there were lots of online resources such as Oak Academy and online lessons with my friends. But what I didn't enjoy about it was that I couldn't do sports such as swimming or badminton or running which are my favourite sports and I couldn't visit my friends either!

But my friends and I did this Zoom social every Sunday so we'd get to 'meet up' virtually at least.

I definitely didn’t enjoy self isolation. I couldn’t go anywhere and I was fed up by not being able to see my friends.

I didn't enjoy because I am not allowed to go out and when I self isolated the days were hot and I am not allowed to go to the splash park.

I didn't like isolating because it ruined family plans and we couldn't go out together . When we did go out, we had to wear masks but it was uncomfortable .

I didn't enjoy self-isolation because lots of things where either cancelled or preponed. I missed out on my birthday sleepover (twice) and even my transition week to secondary school. I didn't see my friends and piers for six months and I lost my habit of healthy eating and early bedtime that lead to me feeling unwell, tired, sad and all in all rotten.

It definitely wasn’t horrible, i could cope, but i would have rather been at school or going out instead of lockdown
