I have been off work for the last week with an awful ear infection. The pain has gone but I have very little hearing at the moment (having to use subtitles on TV etc). One to one, I can hear what someone is saying if they speak up. I am going to go back into work for the last day as I don't want to have to get a sick note to cover me for the holidays. I intend to chuck some word searches at the children (which I would do anyway on a breaking up day) and a range of craft-type activities. I will have my TA in with me all day so won't be on my own. I want to give my class some end of term treats etc as they are such a lovely class (Y2). I don't know how much i will be able to hear, though. Am I mad for considering going back? If I felt unwell I would get the sick note but I actually feel fine in myself now. Any thoughts? Coping strategies? Should I have posted this in a different forum?
