In Literacy this week, we will begin our unit on instructions. The children will look at sets of instructions and recognise when they are used in day to day life. Following this they will identify the features of instructions by studying a text in more detail. They will go on to giving and following instructions, before writing a set of instructions for a practical activity they have carried out in the classroom.


Instruction text, command, imperative verb, feature, structure, subtitle, diagram, title, ingredients, equipment, method, bullet points, numbered steps


This week we will be covering number systems. This will start by recognizing the number system that we use as a base 10 system. They will then go on to look at Roman numerals, converting from and to regular numbers and adding and subtracting them. Following this, the children will learn to read and understand the Aztec pictoral number system and solve problems using them.

Kunst met een grote K
De Stip

Deze week lezen we het prentenboek De Stip van Peter H. Reynolds en leggen we de link naar poëzie. Als een simpele stip een kunstwerk kan zijn, hoe maak je dan van een bordje bij de groenteboer met ‘Sla 12 cent’ een gedicht. En hoe combineer je beeld met poëzie, zodat het elkaar versterkt.

Als alles volgens planning gaat krijgen we maandag 8 mei bezoek van kunstenaar Peter Riezebos. Op dinsdag 16 mei bezoeken alle leerlingen van KS2 zijn tentoonstelling in het Duolun museum.

Year  3/ 4 Native German - Ms Brannasch

Wir lernten, einem Comic Informationen zu entnehmen, sie zuerst vorauszusagen, dann zu überlegen wer was sagen, fragen und fühlen kann. Zu Hause sollen die Kinder ihren eigenen Comic erstellen „Gestern war ein komischer Tag“, in dem sie Fragen und Aussagen in die Sprechblasen schreiben, aber auch kommentieren, was die Personen machen und fühlen. Ein Beispiel dafür ist im Booklet S.45-46

Year  3/ 4 Native Spanish - Ms Garcia

Im Deutschunterricht unterhielten wir uns zuerst, wer was gerne in der Freizeit macht und spielten ein Bingo-Spiel mit den Ideen der Freizeitbeschäftigung. Dann lasen wir den Text „Dino trifft T-Rex“. Zu Hause sollen die Kinder die Geschichte weiterschreiben. Was passiert mit Tina, wenn sie Tino im Park trifft? Wird sie weglaufen, mit ihm sprechen oder was anderes machen? Werden sie miteinander sprechen?
