In Science, we will continue to practice investigatation skills, focusing on the importance of variables in conducting a fair test.

Kunst, met een grote K


Deze week ronden we het thema af en evalueren we wat we geleerd hebben. Op donderdag 25 mei openen we de expositie ‘Kunst, met een grote K’ in de gang bij de Nederlandse lokalen. Informatie volgt in de SDS-Nieuwsbrief.

Ook zullen we langzaam starten met de voorbereiding van de Cito-toetsen die zeer spoedig weer zullen aanvangen. In verband met verschillende schooltrips en sportevenementen lopen de startdata wat uiteen, maar bijna alle klassen in KS2 starten na het lange weekend. Een enkele leerling begint volgende week.

De leerlingen kunnen niet leren voor de Cito-toets. Wel is het aan te raden om trouw het Nieuwsbegrip en BLOON-huiswerk te maken, omdat de vraagstelling en de spellingcategorieën overeenkomen met de Cito-opgaven. Alle leerlingen hebben de inloggegevens voor beide websites. Mocht het inloggen niet lukken, neem dan contact op met Chris (c-samsom@bisspuxi.com).
