DUTCH

Koken, bakken, braden... Kun jij het spreekwoord raden?

Deze week maken we onze ‘spreekwoordtheaters’ af. De leerlingen hebben een spreekwoord uitgewerkt tot rollenspel. Deze week worden de filmpjes opgenomen. Ook starten we met het Digikookboek van S.O.S. SDS!  Na dit thema krijgt iedereen een prachtig S.D.S. Kookboek opgestuurd met digitale visuele ondersteuning.

Cito-toetsen

De Cito’s zijn op een enkele leerling na afgerond. Mocht u vragen hebben naar aanleiding van het mapje dat mee naar huis is gegeven, neem dan contact met Chris op c-samsom@bisspuxi.com.

Leesmarathon

De leesmarathon is weer van start gegaan. Alle kinderen van primary hebben een formulier meegekregen. De kinderen lezen zo veel mogelijk voor. Per gelezen bladzijde vragen zij een kleine sponsorbijdrage. Het kind dat de meeste bladzijdes leest, wordt extra in het zonnetje gezet. Van het geld dat de kinderen bij elkaar lezen, organiseren we op vrijdag 26 februari een spetterend filmfestival. En de kinderen weten het: hoe meer er gelezen wordt, hoe groter we kunnen uitpakken bij het filmfestival... Veel succes allemaal!
