Suppose you woke up tomorrow and it was a corona-free world?
Since school closures were announced in March 2020 Cheryl has been talking to children, their parents, and staff at school to find out what life is like for them in this age of Covid-19. Her conversations have grown into a collection of poetry which reflects the experiences and perspectives of those she has interviewed.
In unique association with Pop Up Projects and Enfield Council, copies of the collection are being printed and distributed free to 2,000 children in Pop Up's 56 partner schools across the UK, and to all 4,300 Year 6 pupils in the borough of Enfield.
A website, , has been created as a hub for information and resources relating to this project. New conversations between children and their families and teachers will be welcomed as audio, video or text. Visit the site for further news.
Cheryl featured guest on Julie Mullen's regular 11am weekday show on Tue 16th June 2020, reading her poetry and playing her favourite tracks.
