Children had a good week and they were ready to get back to their routine pretty quick. We are back in action! 
This week the children, had a lesson on 'Animals in Winter' (migration-hibernation-adaptation), countries in Europe and were introduced to the artist of the month - Vincent Van Gogh. These lessons were followed with a short video clip, so ask your kids about it! We will continue to study more on these topics in the coming weeks.
