Deze week leggen de kinderen van year 2 de laatste hand aan hun persoonlijke groeimeter. Naar aanleiding van het kinderboekenthema `Griezelen` hebben we het deze week over bang zijn. We lezen het verhaal van Bang Mannetje van Mathilde Stein en Mies van Hout en schrijven onze eigen grote en kleine angsten neer. Wat doe jij om je eigen angsten te overwinnen?
Tijdens de spellingslessen maken we een start met het herhalen van de tweetekenklanken. Deze week oefenen we de `ie` van griezelen en de `ui` van muis!
