Week Beginning 4 January 2016

ECA/BISCAP/BISSLIONS Swimming Term 2: will start the week commencing 11 January.


  • International Week begins on Monday 21 March and the whole school parade is on Friday 25 March. If you are returning home for the holiday you may wish to think about a costume for your child as this might be easier to source whilst on vacation. Pupils will be asked to come in wearing the colours of their flag or any national dress associated with your country.
  • Uniform:  Now that it is colder in the mornings please remember that children should not be wearing leggings, boots or hoodies.  They should be wearing school jumpers/cardigans/fleeces and NOT non-uniform versions.  Information is available on the Primary Parent Handbook on the website.

In Literacy this week, the children will be building on their knowledge of non-fiction. They will be identifying the features of non-chronological reports on dinosaurs and then piecing together a non-fiction jigsaw, matching sub-titles with the correct paragraphs and thinking of the best layout.


This week we will be consolidating and extending the children’s knowledge and understanding of place value

They will be comparing and ordering numbers up to 1000, reading and writing numbers up to 1000 in numerals and in words. The concept of rounding will also be covered, where the children will have to identify the nearest 10, 100 or 1000 i.e. 1334 is closest to 1330, 1300 and 1000.


This term our theme is ‘Footprints from the Past’. Over the course of the term the children will be investigating what the world looked like during the time of the dinosaurs, how we know about dinosaurs today and debating whether dinosaurs still exist.

This week, the children will be thinking about what they already know about dinosaurs and then challenged to ask questions, which will extend their knowledge. We will be creating timelines with the children to help them answer the questions: How long did dinosaurs live on Earth? When did dinosaurs live? The children will be working in teams to present the information they have found out and place it in the correct chronological order.


With many children joining our classes, we will be focusing, as a year group on the topic of New Beginnings, with particular emphasis on fostering new relationships. The children will be involved in making the school a safe and happy place for everyone.


Literacy – non-chronological, title, heading, sub-title, sub-heading, paragraph, key word, glossary, contents page, index, diagram, photograph, label, caption

Maths– figure, greater, bigger, larger, smaller, less than, between, order, digit, place value, thousands, hundreds, tens, units, number bond

Themed Learning – timeline, chronology, before, after, Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, myth, fact, compare, contrast


Koken, bakken, braden... Kun jij het spreekwoord raden?

Ons volgende thema staat in het teken van koken en alles wat daarmee te maken heeft (recepten, spijsvertering, het restaurant, ingrediënten, etc.) en de daaraan gekoppelde beeldspraak. Veel spreekwoorden, uitdrukkingen en gezegden draaien immers om een voedingselement.


Staal heeft een oefenapp ontwikkeld die je op je iPad kunt downloaden. De school ID van SDS is 8950. Elke leerling heeft een eigen inlogcode. Die wordt per groep naar u gemaild. De Staalapp wordt vanaf nu deel van het huiswerk en zal zeer regelmatig BLOON vervangen.

In de vakantie kan er vast volop geoefend worden met de Staalapp. Alle opdrachten van de blokken 1 en 2 mogen geoefend worden (herhaling) en van blok 3 mogen de opdrachten van week 1 en 2 gemaakt worden. Zowel de opdrachten van spelling als van grammatica. Let op: de app houdt de score bij! Raffel het dus niet af!

De leerlingen van Y5 en Y6 hebben op school geoefend en zijn zeer enthousiast!

Estafette en bieb

Denkt u op maandag (Y3 , Y5, Y6) of donderdag (Y4)  aan het biebboek en de Estafettemap? Estafette levert alleen het gewenste resultaat op als u uw zoon/dochter controleert tijdens het lezen van Vloeiend&Vlot en als maatje tijdens het maken van het werkboek.

Extra oefenen in de vakantie:

  • Staalapp spelling en grammatica: blok 1 en 2 helemaal en blok 3 t/m week 2
  • Estafette: vloeiend en vlot, elke dag 2 pagina’s tempolezen
  • Vrij lezen: laat uw kind veel Nederlandse boeken lezen in de vakantie; dit is goed voor de woordenschat, het technisch lezen en taalontwikkeling in het algemeen. 

Iedereen een fantastische vakantie gewenst!
