As we wait and wonder whether settings and schools will be closed officially due to the Coronavirus, all education and childcare staff, children and families, will be trying to carry on in the face of uncertainty.
You will all no doubt be finding out as much information as you can and making plans for the unique circumstances of your setting or school. There is a lot out there already to wade through – some of it will be helpful, some not. The Foundation Stage Forum community is here, with members supporting one another, sharing experiences and advice.
This Coffee Break, we would like to give you something to read and allow your mind to drift for a moment.
Maggie and milly and molly and may
By E.E. Cummings
maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach(to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and
milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;
and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and
may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.
For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea
