Our little lad soaks things up like a sponge! He is counting, adding and subtracting well and I have (reluctantly) just started the Jolly phonics workbooks with him, to at least get him writing and reading english before starting German school next August! He has done level 1 and level 2 at swimming and is now very proud to be in class 3. And he draws constantly and extremely well - I can't keep up with his murals and creations :-)
