So a fresh term with fresh possibilities 🙂 Always an exciting moment to wonder what the next term will bring.

Reflection of the past six months brings realisation that whilst we achieved in some areas, other areas were not so great. Tossing ideas about on how to address the areas that were often being ‘skipped’, I’ve come up with a ‘shake up’ of our ‘timetable’ and some ‘must be dones’ before screen time.
