Plans for Term 4 2011

I'm feeling rather enthused about this term and eager to get back into a rhythm.  Keen to continue in my quest to ensure the children have a solid grasp of the basics and a thirst for knowledge.  Also wanting to have Weekly Meetings with 4 oldest.  This term will be 12 weeks for us as we are starting back in the school holidays due to our short Term 2.  
Modifying Term 3 plans.Planning to have regular 'bees' on a Friday night; Spelling, Geography, Faith, History, etc
