DUTCH

Welkom bij Reisbureau SDS!

Deze week beginnen de Nederlandse lessen op SDS/BISS Puxi. De leerlingen in Y3 t/m 6 krijgen 5 uur Nederlands, mits ze niet eerst EAL volgen. In dat geval starten ze met 2 Nederlandse lessen per week. Dit eerste thema gaat over reizen. We onderzoeken het verschil tussen een reisverslag (zoals de grote ontdekkingsreizigers) en een reisverhaal (denk aan Jules Verne). We bespreken wat een goede reis kenmerkt, wie zo’n reis samenstelt en wat je daar allemaal voor moet kunnen en moet doen. De leerlingen mogen hun favoriete vakantiefoto meenemen en een foto van de tofste vakantieactiviteit (mail naar c-samsom@bisspuxi.com) . We zullen de foto’s gebruiken in de lessen en op de displays.
