It certainly has been a busy month or two for both Jim and myself.

Over the last couple of months I have been attending a series of workshops held by Oxford University Press in conjunction with IIEEC in Tokyo. These included lectures and practicums given by the well known Ritsuko Nakata, author of the Let's Go series, and other qualified teacher trainers. Very interesting and lots of new ideas for the classroom which I've been getting stuck into and have already seen the benefit of.

My tots have been busy too, making sculptures to illustrate the story of the Tortoise and the Hare, which they know now by heart! A messy job to be sure, but we took the necessary precautions, no paint was spilt and a lot of fun was had by all.
