Voor de voorstelling van Tosca Menten hebben de leerlingen  fantastische  presentaties in de klas gehouden. De  leraren en de leerlingen waren goed voorbereid en allemaal erg enthousiast. De voorstellingen  van Tosca Menten voor de Nederlandse kinderen en voor de overige kinderen waren een groot succes.

De tentoonstelling over Tosca Menten staat nog even bij de Primary Reception,  iedereen kan hier het werk van de leerlingen bewonderen.

Nu zijn de leerlingen allemaal bezig met de vraag: “Waar is Sinterklaas?”. We hebben het `SDS Sinterklaasjournaal ` bekeken en we vragen ons nu allemaal af of het feest wel door kan gaan.

Er wordt hard gewerkt: er worden gedichten en brieven geschreven, er wordt aan cadeaus gewerkt en aanstaande dinsdag mogen alle leerlingen de schoen zetten.

Vrijdag komt de Sint (hopelijk) aan en vergeet je niet aan te melden voor de gezellige Sinterklaas afterparty.
