Our Week Ahead ~ Monday 22 February 2016

Last week was birthday week in our home: we have a run of family, and friends, birthdays from the 14th to the 18th - so we make that week one of our weeks off scheduled learning... though we do continue reading and listening to audio books :-)

This week has been a fully back to scheduled learning week, and we're on page 2 of our history/lit schedule; which equates to having already covered 4 weeks worth of reading and learning.
