Wij hebben deze week weer  SDS Sinterklaasjournaaltjes gekeken. De Sint hebben we niet gezien in de filmpjes maar de (wo)men in black  zijn er wel  helemaal klaar voor. De leerlingen zijn er ook klaar  voor, ze hebben veel geknutseld, gekleurd en gefilmd. Ook mochten de leerlingen de schoen zetten en hebben ze heerlijke pepernoten gebakken. In het laatste journaal hebben we gezien dat de Sint , Juf Chris heeft verteld dat hij nu toch echt gaat komen op vrijdag 1 December. Spannend allemaal!!
