LEARNING THEME

Our focus of Dr Suess will continue throughout book week. The children have already explored many of these books but one of our favourites has been ‘Cat in the Hat’. You may have heard your child talking about ‘Thing One and Thing Two’ last week. These are two very naughty friends of the Cat in the Hat. Throughout the past week we have created our own Thing one and Thing two in class however, over the weekend something magical happened and they came to life! They have been causing chaos  around the school, making very poor choices and causing real problems for the teachers in the school. The children will interview the teachers, asking questions to find out what happened and what they need to do next! We are encouraging the children to think about their own next steps in their learning and developing their own ideas. This is a nice link to combine these two fantastic activities. Remember to look out for weird and wonderful things happening in school!

Key Vocabulary:  Next, who, where, what, why? Weird, wonderful

PHONICS

The Dr Suess books lend themselves perfectly to Rhyme. This week we will have a Thing one and a Thing Two very special box. Inside will be items that end in the sound at. They sound nearly the same! E.g. bat, cat, rat

Key vocabulary :  cat, bat, sat, mat, fat,

LITERACY

Our literacy focus this week will be linked to the story ‘Oh the places we will go’. We will disscuss where we could go on a journey? How we would get there? What transport we could take?  We will use these discussion points to make marks, giving some meaning to this writing.

MATHS

The teachers will be play partners during our maths focus this week. We will encourage children to join us, building and creating towers, trees, transport, using these models to talk about the height, how many blocks they used and the shape of the blocks. This is an important way for us to extend the childrens learning and see  mathematical development in a fun environment.

Key Vocabulary: 1-10, tall, small, build, join, all together

DUTCH

Hecko, de goochelaar van Circus Rondo, is fantastich.  Hij kan echt toveren!  Dat wil clown Tito ook wel kunnen.  Maar met zijn eigen hoedje lukt het helemaal niet.  Zal hij Hecko vragen om het hem te leren?  We leren net zoals Tito toveren en oefenen op het herhalen van  zijn toverspreuken.   Wat zit er allemaal in de hoed van Hecko?

Elke  woensdag gaan we met de Nederlandse klas naar de bibliotheek. Gelieve het boek tijdig weer mee te geven met uw kind.  Dank voor uw medewerking hierbij.

Volgende  week dinsdag en donderdag zijn er oudergesprekken op BISS Puxi en uiteraard zijn juf Chris en Juf Cindy ook beschikbaar. Maakt u wel even een afspraak per mail (c-samsom@bisspuxi.com of c-borger@bisspuxi.com) .
