Bus rides, book bags, uniform:
Nope! Now PJs are the norm.
Lunch dets. if you played the fool –
who’d have guessed they’re now…OLD SKOOL?
Joe Wicks in the living room,
catching up with friends on Zoom,
kept in when I don’t break rules –
getting used to this…new school.
Street dance, football, art club, games,
going home for tea with James,
Friday lessons at the pool –
group activities …OLD SKOOL!
Log-in problems, crashed the iPad,
Ofsted rating: really bad.
My new class is MINISCULE –
it’s just me in this…new school.
Hockey, netball, food tech, drama,
class trip to the town Gurdwara,
science: build this molecule –
school has been declared...OLD SKOOL.
Dad’s been furloughed, Mum’s on calls,
baby brother’s climbing walls.
Sort of thought this would be cool, but –
kind of missing my…old school.
