Covid -19 (Creative work during the lockdown)

Creative work from Children and young people

Its lovely to see that there are children who are using this time to be creative and also to consider ways to express their feelings by writing them down or drawing them.  Please view below a variety of creative drawings and written work from our Children and young people.

Some of the children we have chatted to have been having strange and really realistic dreams during lockdown.  MADE Junior will be making some dream catchers to help with their own dreams.  Try make one yourself (remember to ask an adult or someone over 18 caring for you for help )

Please take a look to access activities and competitions on offer during lockdown.  The activities will be in date order and will have an expiry on so please take a look at the small print.

An amazing Poem called ‘Lockdown’ that someone has shared:

LOCKDOWN

Lockdown….Emptiness.…eeriness…

Abandoned

AT RISK!

Imprisoned….feeling trapped indoors

As the depressing days drag by praying we fight these wars.

Protection

Dont touch,

Dont go out,

Dont be close,

Wash your hands

Wash your hands

Wash Your Hands!

Anger boiling up inside.  Feelings that I cannot hide.

Adrenaline rush which cannot sleep

I scream, I punch, I hate… I weep

crying for those who are ill.

Don’t venture out….It will kill 

Come down.

Drooping disappointment.

On hold….my life on hold.  

Melancholically floating in the doldrums,

listlessly reflecting  on the loneliness and sorrow  

                                                           waiting for the end.                                                          

                                                                                                         Will normality return tomorrow ?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

What day is it anyway?

Batteries are running low

I squirrel up inside my bed,

There’s no charge.

Shutdown

I’m hibernating

Life will come again
