Week Beginning 17 October 2016

Next week we will be going on our exciting trip to Café du Village! You will have received information regarding which day your child’s class are visiting. Please keep an eye on the weather forecast and send your child to school appropriately dressed with a jumper/cardigan/light jacket if needed and shoes suitable for walking there. We will get the bus back to school.

MESSAGES

  • Reading books should be returned to school daily so that the children can also read in school and it is important that you tick the children’s communication books when they read at home.
  • As the weather is beginning to change please make sure your child comes to school with suitable named outdoor clothes;  a raincoat with a hood and rain boots, which they can change into to go outside when it is wet. Please label all items with your child’s name!
  • Spare clothes: please remember that accidents do happen and it is very helpful to keep a spare set of named clothes in your childs cubby basket. Please include socks!
  • Tanzania Day: We are dressing up in non-uniform for Tanzania Day this Friday 21 October and donating 10 RMB each. You can dress in the Tanzania flag colours, something linked with safari or maybe something else! This will help raise money for the Kitefu Primary School in Tanzania.

Deze week kijken we terug naar  alle reizen die we gemaakt hebben de voorbije weken.  We gingen op reis met kikker en egel en vlogen samen met de 8 schijfjes  banaan de wereld rond.

We maken een reiskoffertje en vullen het met onze mooiste herinneringen.

Naar aanleiding van het kinderboekenweekthema `Voor altijd jong` beginnen we volgende week met een nieuw thema `Houden van...`.   We zullen in de klas een familiestamboom maken en praten over onze grootouders.  Kan u enkele leuke familiefoto`s mailen naar c-borger@bisspuxi.com of meegeven met uw kind?  Dank voor uw medewerking hierbij.
