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  schrijven onze mooiste herinneringen neer.

In de spellingsles maken we kennis met nieuwe vriendjes in de vriendjesflat.

Naar aanleiding van het kinderboekenweekthema `Voor altijd jong` beginnen we volgende week met een nieuw thema `Vroeger was alles beter! .

We zullen in de klas een familiestamboom maken en praten over vroeger en nu.  Kan u enkele leuke familiefoto`s mailen naar c-borger@bisspuxi.com of meegeven met uw kind?  Dank voor uw medewerking hierbij.
