Naar aanleiding van ons bezoek aan de expositie van Peter Riezebos aanstaande dinsdag verdiepen we ons deze week in het reilen en zeilen in een museum. Aan de hand van het boek `Willewete: het museum` komen we te weten wie er allemaal werken en vooral dat je heel voorzichtig moet zijn met kunst! Deze week beginnen we ook met de opstart van onze eigen tentoonstelling. We verzamelen onze kunstwerken en stallen ze uit voor het grote publiek. Houd de Nederlandse gang in de gaten de komende weken!
In de spellingslessen oefenen we woorden met f-v.
