Afronding Blijspel

We blikken terug op een fantastisch show en ronden het thema Blijspel af. De leerlingen van Y3 t/m 6 werken deze week aan een gezamenlijke klassendisplay over hun show. Ze werken aan een karakterbeschrijving en een pakkende samenvatting van het gespeelde verhaal, zonder het einde te verklappen (een zogenaamde ‘blurb’ of achterflaptekst). Ook schrijft elke leerling een evaluatie aan de hand van een vooraf opgestelde controlelijst.

We streven ernaar u deze week de Cito-resultaten mee te kunnen geven.
