I miss my best friend Jake
I am Alex and I am 5 years old. I live in Eaton in Norwich. I live in a house with three bedrooms, an office and a garden. It is a dormer bungalow.
I live with Mum and Dad and Seb and Archie the cat. Seb is my brother and he is almost two.
I live next door to a big park and have taken some photos of it with my toy camera.
I took the photos on my toy camera. We are not allowed to go in the playground.
In what ways has the coronavirus pandemic changed the way you use your home?
The kitchen table is being used to do my school work.

How do you feel about your home? How have these feelings changed?
I feel mixed. I feel happy and I feel bored sometimes.
How does staying at home affect your relationships?
We spend more time together. It is good spending more time with my brother. I miss my best friend Jake.

What do you appreciate most about your home? What do you find frustrating?
My favourite thing to do is my camera. Nothing is frustrating about the house, but I don't like not being able to see my friends.
How has lockdown changed your habits or routines at home?
I am playing football more. I am going to the park more. I have been playing my coding game.
We go to the park everyday to play football after lunch
How is your sense of home affected by your neighbours or those living nearby?
We had a front garden party with our neighbours and shared a cake on the wall. We had to take turns to play Jenga and we had to stay apart from each other.
