Van Reisbureau naar Vroeger...

De leerlingen hebben hun vakantie-ervaringen verwerkt in prachtige reisverslagen met een imaginaire twist aan het einde, het reisverhaal. We maken deze verhalen af, evalueren het thema en ronden daarmee het thema Reisbureau SDS af.

Het is kinderboekenweek in Nederland en het thema van dit jaar is: ‘Voor altijd jong!’ waarin opa’s en oma’s centraal staan. In KS2 werken we daarom de komende weken rond het thema: Vroeger was alles ... We poetsen onze interviewtechnieken op ter voorbereiding van een interview met opa of oma over Skype; onderzoeken wat opa’s en oma’s vroeger deden (want hoe is het leven zonder internet en iPad?), schrijven verhalen en denken na over onze families.

Im Deutschunterricht diese Woche haben wir uns mit den Nomen beschäftigt, und zwar mit der Einzahl und Mehrzahl der Sachen um uns herum. Dieses ist ein umfangreiches Thema und wir werden uns auch nächste Woche darauf konzentrieren. Dann wird auch verstärkt auf die Grossschreibung der Nomen Wert gelegt.
Zu Hause sollen die Kinder (mit Ihrer Hilfe) die Gegenstände in der Turnhalle in der Einzahl udn Mehrzahl in ihren Booklets schreiben (S. 10). Ihre Hilfe ist sehr willkommen, da nicht alle Kinder die Gegenstände beim Namen kennen.
