Alle leerlingen van KS2 zijn keihard aan het werk aan de ‘Hoe-overleef-ik-Azië-gids,’ zodat ook u hem van de zomer mee kunt nemen op uw Aziëavontuur! De oriënterende fase is voorbij en alle leerlingen zijn hard bezig met hun onderzoek. Vooral het opstellen van goede onderzoeksvragen en het vinden van informatie op internet staat deze week centraal. De leerlingen komen er snel achter dat niet alle informatie van internet bruikbaar is.

Spelling ‘Laat Zien’ is rondgemaild aan alle ouders van KS2. De leerlingen kennen het als het kaartjesspel van spelling wat we in de klas spelen. Dit spel is een goede voorbereiding op de aanstaande Cito-toetsen omdat het de leerlingen wijst op de verschillende categorieën en woordproblemen. Het draagt daardoor bij aan het woordbeeld en aan het spellingsbewustwordingsproces.
