This morning we worked on subtraction skills using the Cuisinaire Rods, counted in two's and worked on the two times table - Benedict is still having difficulty remembering the answers for the tables but I know that at some point it will click. This is what happened with his reading and now he is a voracious reader! After this Benedict followed the guidance in the Usborne I Can Draw Series and drew a beautiful reindeer to add to his collection of a monkey and a bee. He has also read several books of his own choosing including The Tale of Mrs Tittlemouse by Beatrix Potter. As I write he is now resting in bed as I'm sure he is brewing an infection, again!
Edited To Add: A phone call from the GP this afternnoon confirmed my suspicions, another kidney infection is brewing, so another course of anti-biotics, the second set this month. Benedict as usual is very matter of fact about the whole thing, good job too, I suppose!
