…is that of your one-and-only child looking sorry for himself.
I’m off school today looking after Ben as Hannah’s probably got Ofsted next week (it’s been deferred from this week for several reasons).
All he wants to do is watch CBeebies – which, apparently, is inordinantly sexist! 😮

A cluttered desk is a sign of genius.
I’ve started using Twitter with my pupils…

Ah Poor little Ben still poorly. Hope he is feeling better very soon!

What the heck is ofsted?
Ah, Google to the rescue. Remember us over here when you use words like that! ;)

@ Chris Craft. Just be glad you’ve never heard of them!
To the author of the Guardian piece on sexism on CBBC: you’ve clearly never watched Lazytown. Stephanie is feisty, and a real leader – she does wear pink though, something which my 4 year old daughter strongly identifies with. How has this happened?

@Chris: Sorry – have added a link to rectify the situation! ;-)
@John: You're right about Lazytown. The girl is an absolute star of the future and if she's not a role model, I don't know who is!

Hope Ben is feeling a little more cheerful now!
And thinking of Hannah with the Grey Suits – :o)

Have to agree with the article Doug despite loving Cbeebies from a female perspective I always had a problem with the token Wendy in Bob the Builder. My son has kindly since introduced me to Super Mario and Princess Peach – what a role model eh!;)
