De Sint is aangekomen in Shanghai!  Of toch niet?  In het boek `Sint op drift`  raakt de stoomboot  van Sinterklaas het noorden kwijt.   Sinterklaas moet zich beroepen op een ouderwets kompas en de Poolster.  Hopelijk loopt dit goed af!  Deze week maken we samenstellingen met de Sint en oefenen we hoe we een goede brief naar Sinterklaas schrijven.
