Found out my 10 year old nephew is spending his school week outside. Lessons have been ditched for building dens, treasure hunts, sports...anything team building or activity related basically.
Apparently the kids haven't just fallen miles behind where they'd be expected to be at this age, their focus & ability to learn has slipped significantly & they're not showing any signs of snapping out of it...& it's been noted they're not socialising properly either.
Not sure if this kind of thing is happening elsewhere. Think it's a roll of the dice by the school tbh.
We'll never be able to measure the real damage this shit storm has caused.
