Deze week gaan we verder met onze opgave om net zoals Bang Mannetje  niet meer bang te zijn.  Naar aanleiding van het boek `Het donker`  geschreven door Lemony Snicket zoeken we  naar oplossingen om niet meer bang te zijn voor het donker.   Misschien heb jij thuis wel een nachtlampje in je slaapkamer?  Of laat mama het licht aan in de gang?

In Villa Letterpret zoeken we deze week woorden die beginnen met de letter `a`.

De kinderen van Reception  brengen elke dinsdag een bezoekje aan de schoolbibliotheek.  Gelieve het biebboek weer  tijdig mee te geven zodat uw kind elke week een nieuw boek kan uitkiezen.  Hartelijk dank voor uw hulp hierbij.
