MESSAGES

  • As the weather is now changing, please make sure your child is well equipped for the day ahead with named, appropriate rain clothing such as a rain coat and wellington boots.
  • PE KIT -  Lots of children are coming to school without their PE kit saying that they are ‘sick’ and so not doing PE. PE lessons are conducted inside throughout the year. Please be aware that PE is an important part of your child’s curriculum and they should be prepared and safe during the lesson by wearing the appropriate clothing. If your child is not well enough for PE, please keep them at home so that they can recover fully before returning to school.

We are excited that the children are getting creative and want to build models and make different things, but we need your help to supply bottles, toilet roll inners, boxes, lids and more!

DUTCH

De kinderen van Reception hebben de voorbije week allerlei manieren gevonden om monsters te lokken én te vangen.  Deze week maken we kennis met `Klein monster Motta`, een kerntitel uit het kinderboekenweekpakket geschreven door Yvonne Jagtenberg.   Klein monster Motta woont met zijn monstermama en -papa en zijn zes harige, woeste, wilde monsterlijke broers. Motta wil net zo groot, sterk en griezelig zijn als zijn broers, maar hoe hij ook brult en stampt, ze vinden hem alleen maar schattig. Niemand begrijpt hem. 

Deze week hebben we het over `monsterlijke kenmerken` en helpen we Motta even eng te worden als zijn broers .  We werken verder aan een beschrijving van ons eigen plasticine monster.  Kan jij een `monsterlijke` naam bedenken voor je monster?

In Villa Letterpret zoeken we deze week woorden met de letter `o `.

Vergeet niet het SDS fimfestival op de familiekalender te zetten!  Ook de kinderen van EYC zijn van harte welkom om vrijdag 27 oktober van 15u30 tot 18u15 samen met mama en papa de SDS boekenbingo af te sluiten met een leuke kinderfilm en heerlijke snacks!

KERNWOORDENSCHAT

monster, klauwen, brullen, stampen, brommen, grommen, stampvoeten, schattig, griezelig, harig
