    Misreading

    Was it that post on the forum? I misread that too! XD Thought some poor soul had finally reached their wit’s end with a particularly difficult teacher.

    You ever been sent home sick?

    I have, a few times due to migraine. (I once threw up in a gratnell tray in the prep room, which was both gross and embarrassing. Don't be me.) Time to go home!

    What Elizabeth said. :) What you're doing sounds fun and safe. Earlier in the year I had a lovely trip out with 5 friends for a birthday celebration. We played a modified, socially distanced version of a board game called Skull (we all sat 2m apart in a circle & brought our own cards so we...

    Aww, I love year sevens. I did some demos with the teacher for our new ones earlier in the year. :)

    @Julie Delaney I'm asthmatic, so I'm nervous about it too.

    The *science teacher (or the English one, to my certain knowledge) who teaches the kid in question wasn't even informed, doesn't bode well for them doing anything else right.

    Well, we've got our first confirmed case and my anxiety is through the roof right now. Nobody even told us anything. One of the teachers found out because of the 'not attending' mark on the register.

    Flowcharts are fun!

    Dep. head who always steals his own kit instead of submitting requests like everyone else particularly annoyed me today by half-inching a Forbidden Balloon. I have now replaced the bag of balloons in the storage cupboard with the following message; FLOWCHART! Is filling a delicate plastic...

    Open evening

    Virtual here too. We did one nice demo as part of the science section of the 'tour'. Science kit set up around members of the public these days seems very risky, especially considering that it encourages the parents to mill around in the labs and that if something goes wrong the person in...

    COVID & shielding?

    Nope, nothing like 100%. The best a cloth mask will do is stop large droplets, and it's more effective at preventing people who have C19 (but may not know it) spreading it (as far as I understand it catches large droplets before they have the chance to form smaller, more mobile droplets) than...

    New friend has arrived!

    It's less a corner than a scattering across the entire department XD but I'll take some photos after half term! As we only have 5 days in school before half term at my place I've decided to keep Vanya at home til then. I don't want to stress her too much with repeated travel.

    Good gas examples for a non-lab?

    Eh, we've blanket-banned balloons >> can't trust the little dears not to pop them. Or that they won't pop accidentally during the demo and spew virusy droplets in all directions like a tiny pestilent grenade.
