The weather has certainly taken a turn this week and it is getting much colder. I hope you have all managed to stay warm and cosy. Despite this change in the weather we have still be going to play outside regularly. Your child is given the opportunity to play outside regularly throughout the day in addition to break time and lunch time. Please make sure that they come to school appropriately dressed with a warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves/mittens.
We have continued with our work on Biscuit Bear. We made our own biscuit bears but unfortunately they were eaten by Bongo the dog (which is exactly what happens in the story!) however we still managed to decorate and eat some biscuits despite them not being bear shaped.
This weekend Sinterklaas will be arriving in Breda. He arrives on his steam boat from Spain with his assistants Zwarte Pieten with lots of pepernoten (small spiced biscuits) for the children. It is a fantastic experience that shouldn’t be missed. We have been talking about his arrival in our Dutch lesson this week.
Wishing you all a pepernoten filled weekend,
