A pair of mischievous parents managed to trick their children into thinking their school had been reopened in a brilliant April Fool's Day prank.
Claire and Jason Jones, from Merthyr Tydfil, convinced their sons that all schools that had been closed due to coronavirus had been reopened - even going so far as to make them a packed lunch and get them dressed.
Mum-of-three Claire saw the idea on social media and decided she had to try it out on her two eldest boys, Rio, aged nine, and Rowan, aged seven.
"It was just a bit of a laugh really, I just thought 'oh I have to do that' when I saw it last night," said Claire.
"I think they were a bit disappointed they had to go in but they took it really well. They got up, brushed their teeth and dressed and got ready - they were literally ready to go when we told them. "
Claire, 37, says they didn't pick up on the prank but were confused at the change of policy.
"They were just saying that the prime minster should make up his mind and that he should be isolating if he has symptoms.
"They keep saying they're going to prank me back now - I told them they only have until 12pm though."
The boys have been continuing their lessons at home since the lockdown.
"We're doing well at home and they've gotten into a routine with their lessons. I think they're not letting the situation get to them," Claire added.
"Other than not begin able to see their grandparents and stuff I think they're enjoying it."
Dad Jason Jones, 39, said the boys took the prank in their stride.
"It was just a bit of light-hearted fun, just something to cheer them up a bit with everything that's going on," he said.
"We knew they'd take it well, they've both got a sense of humour about them."
Jason said they told the boys that others hadn't been taken home schooling seriously and that's why the schools re-opened.
"We've been telling them about the importance of still having their education at home so we said that Boris had changed his mind because not enough people were taking it seriously.
"Because some of their friends have still being going, it was quite believable.
"We said he had made a decision late last night, and this morning got them up and ready - Claire even made a packed lunch too for them to take.
"We've got quite a good routine going at home now and I think they have gotten used to it."
The Welsh Government announced last month that all schools in Wales would be closed from March 20, with children of key workers an exception.
There is no date for when schools will reopen.
