Gruwelijk Eng!

Vorige week vrijdag hebben we een fantastisch gruwelfeest gehad. Er was een gruwelijk enge griezelgang en voeldozen met allemaal vieze dingen erin.  De leerlingen werden opeens ook allemaal mummies en buiten op de speelplaats werd er geoefend hoe men moet vliegen op een heksenbezem. Erg griezelig allemaal!

In de klas worden de  gruwelijk vieze recepten afgemaakt. Deze hangen vanaf volgende week op de display of in de klas. Durven jullie het ook echt te koken?

De meeste leerlingen hebben hun kinderboekenbingo bijna volledig af en al geld verdiend voor de gruwelijk enge filmavond.    De filmavond is op vrijdag 27 oktober van 15u30 tot 18u15. Verdere informatie over deze avond krijgen jullie per e-mail.

Er staan weer nieuwe lijsten in Bloon zodat jullie weer nieuwe woorden kunnen maken.

Vanaf volgende week gaan we ook weer Nieuwsbegrip huiswerk maken.
