Having drawn inspiration from the story Stellaluna, the children will focus on characters and setting and begin to write their own stories. They will use adjectives to make their writing more detailed and exciting.

In Maths we will develop our learning about measures and learn how to record answers to practical problems involving length. The children will use non-standard units of measurement such as blocks and cubes and standard units such as centimetre and metre.

We will be investigating different types of materials and their properties. The children will plan, undertake and record scientific experiments that will aid in their understanding of the properties of the various materials.

This week the children will talk and reflect positively on what they achieved this year. These may be academic achievements in class, they might be sport or music based. Perhaps they have made some new friends.

Zal de Sint ook dit jaar SDS bezoeken? De (Wo) Men in Black zijn de voorbije week al op school gespot maar iedereen is nog op zoek naar Sinterklaas! De kinderen van SDS leggen de goedheiligman dit jaar extra in de watten en hebben heel wat verrassingen voor hem. Misschien wil de Sint wil een nieuw mijter? Of nieuwe wimpels voor de stoomboot? Zou een schoorsteen op het dak Sinterklaas kunnen overtuigen om naar SDS te komen?
Wij hopen jullie allemaal op vrijdag 1 december te mogen verwelkomen en hopen van harte dat de Sint ook dit jaar langskomt met allerlei lekkers !
De letter van de week is de ` uu `.
