A reasonably productive week, mostly got our rhythm going though some settling in still to be done.
*Written a few weeks after this learning week so missing some detail particularly Malachi’s workload info.
Our Reading Basket didn’t quite take the path I envisaged. I was expecting Genevieve to break off with the other teens but she still gravitated towards the boys group, Sebastian fitted in with that group easier this year. Managed only one reading basket session with the teens, was heartened to see that Malachi is still keen to take part, so some readjusting there in my thoughts as well.
