DUTCH

Afgelopen vrijdag hebben de leerlingen gegriezeld en genoten  tijdens de SDS griezelfilmavond.

Sommige leerlingen hebben er zelfs nachtmerries van gehad, zo griezelig!

De kinderboekenweek is nu afgelopen maar de leerlingen mogen natuurlijk gewoon verder gruwelijke enge boeken van de kinderboekenweek lezen. Ze zijn allemaal in de bibliotheek te vinden.

We zijn nog niet klaar met griezelen! De leerlingen werken verder aan het griezelverhaal. Kunnen de leerlingen net zo’n griezelig verhaal schrijven als  Onnoval in de film de Griezelbus?

Huiswerk is weer als in het begin van het jaar: spelling oefenen met BLOON, Nieuwsbegrip en vergeet niet te lezen met Estafette.
