5 ways to protect your hearing on holiday Ear Protection!
Wear ear protection when using power tools for gardeners, power tools are hazardous to hearing health.
Lawnmowers can have a sound above 90 decibels and a power saw can exceed 110 decibels. Always wear proper ear protection when using them.
Up to one in three airline passengers suffer middle ear pain and a dullness of hearing on take-off or landing, due to
changes in cabin pressure. For a comfortable trip, suck on a sweet, yawn to keep your Eustachian tube open, stay hydrated and avoid falling asleep.
Prevent Swimmer’s Ear! Exercising Ears! Bud Out!
Swimmer’s ear is a common but painful ailment, so wear a swimming hat to cover
your ears. Make sure ear canals are clear of water after swimming by drying your ears with a towel or tilting your head to each side to allow water escape.
To protect hearing and ward off hearing loss, get plenty of exercise. Walking, running or cycling helps to
improve blood flow to your ears, which is good for hearing. Yoga helps increase circulation to the cochlea, the hearing organ in the inner ear.
Resist putting anything in your ears to clean them. You risk an ear infection if you use cotton buds or fingers to clean ears.
If concerned about wax build up, Better Hearing Clinic offers a wax removal service.

In a recent speech, Schools Minister Nick Gibb argued that when we set teachers free to innovate, by engaging with research and evidence, that education will flourish. At Cockermouth School, this is something that we have been developing for a number of years. Our focus is on providing our talented teachers with the freedom to engage with evidence that will improve the impact of their teaching. It is something that we are delighted to be sharing with a number of schools across the country and leading the way within the national education picture.
This takes many forms in our school. From staff reading about the theory and strong evidence-base behind cognitive science informed approaches in school, to incorporating this into our daily pedagogy, this is a truly exciting time for our school. We are constantly refining our approaches, from implementing knowledge organisers, to teaching our students explicitly how to engage learning resources such as these to support their immersion into the subjects that they are learning about.
For our students to achieve the best learning possible, we are passionate about ensuring they too understand the evidence-base behind the most effective and time- efficient methods of learning, supporting them to become lifelong learners themselves. Recently, students have been taught about Ebbinghaus’ forgetting curve and the impact of spaced practice in learning. To us, this is where the impact of innovation can be most keenly felt, ensuring that our students are active participants in driving their own learning.
In Gibb’s speech, he acknowledged the complexity that lies beneath the behemoth of education. By innovating through the use of evidence informed education, it is a moral imperative to make the pedagogical choices that are most likely to have the greatest impact on the lives of young people.
