Dropped like a lead balloon!

Hi Everyone,
My family members don't get sick very often but when we do, we drop like lead balloons. I have been away for three days this week due to illness. The first day was spent with my husband in hospital being treated for a very nasty viral infection, followed by 2 days in bed with it myself. All being well ( I have 2 teenage sons at home who have not shown any symptoms yet) I should be back at school on Monday. In the meantime the class have been working under the care of some amazing casual teachers and of course Sarah, our brilliant Education Support worker. What would we do without Sarah!
Now that we are in bugs and flu season it is really important to reinforce those good personal hygiene habits like, hand washing, sneezing and nose blowing and all of that other germy stuff! For younger children I use the fantastic Crawford the Cat video series.
Crawford is a water waster though! You will see what I mean when you watch the videos. We had great discussions in our class about that. Click on the image to find out more.
