We have now started the theme called ”Elephant’s very best summer”. Elephant is rather warm during the theme which makes him forget putting all kinds of things into his backpack. The children try to think of solutions to not forgetting anything, or taking everything with them. We will also pay attention to feelings. For instance, what do you feel like when you forget something or when someone makes fun of you when you make a mistake. They find solutions in helping each other out. The children also learn to say “Ho stop, houd daarmee op!” (Stop it, quit doing that!) when something happens they are not happy with. They try to support each other in saying that but also learn to get the teacher involved in trying to find a solution.
In the course of this week, you will receive a letter to inform you on next year’s arrangements of the groups.
Group 7 During the final month group 7 has no longer been split up. So also Monday and Tuesday all in one group with Ms Debby.
Group 8 Group 8 will have their farewell musical on Tuesday 7th July and will be at school for the last time on Wednesday morning. This means, that they have an extra day off school, of which the parents will be informed through a separate letter. Thursday 18th June, children of group 8 will attend Olympiade. Together with other group 8 children in The Hague. We hope they enjoy a nice day and wish them luck.
We would like to end this year in a sportive manner, on the beach. Monday 29th June and Tuesday 30th June, children of all groups (1-8) will be joining in the strandspelen. We are looking for parents who are willing to help out guiding infants with the games on the beach on Monday morning. For Tuesday morning, we could use extra help for groups 3, 4 and 5 and in the afternoon (between 12.30pm and 2.30pm) for children of bovenbouw (groups 6,7 and 8). In order to make these days successful we need quite a lot of parents. We hope that many of you would be willing to help us out and for nice weather, but even with a little rain we will continue with the games. Please contact the group teacher if you are interested in helping us out. Thank you in advance.
Historic Festival Scheveningen
Scheveningen village will be turned into a historic festival on Saturday, 22nd August next. In and around streets like Keizerstraat and its shopping area will be turned into an open air theatre. An event in which you will be able to walk down memory lane (between 18th century until 1980s).
Many activities have been planned throughout the festival area, for instance, tableaux vivants (paintings that come alive), people walking around in historic clothes and music performances.
The festival will be opened by Bobbie (a character from tv programme “Ernst, Bobbie and the rest!”)
The festival organisers are looking for parents and children who will be willing to play a small part in one of many tableaux (for instance, an old school class, a large family of fishermen from around 1920s, a soup kitchen, etc).
Should your child want to take part in this festival he or she would be able to borrow the clothes we used on 30th November 2013 at the Landing of the Prince memorials.
If you are interested in additional information, please check out the festival’s website: www.historischfestivalscheveningen.nl. Applications for volunteers can be done through the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope for many applications, for a successful and beautiful festival!
On behalf of the organisation of the Historic festival Scheveningen,
Like we informed you earlier, we will be making a school trip on Friday 26th June next.
Remember to note our school trip in your agenda.
Date: Friday 26th June next Location: Geitenboerderij “t Geertje”
time: between 9.45am and 11.30 am Address: Geerweg 7 te 2381 LT Zoeterwoude
The trip will be free of charge. Coffee or tea can be bought at the farm, and will be for your own account. For the children the play groups will take care of a small snack. (During our visit to boerderij ‘t Geertje it is not possible to eat or drink any consumptions brought from home).
On 15th June we will start with our final theme called “oef wat warm!” (It is really warm). You will be informed separately through a letter, but for now we have the schedule for spelinloop activities.
Monday, 15th June, for all groups during their own day part.
Friday 26 June school trip for all groups. Every child needs to have one guide during the entire visit. We need you to bring and take your child to the farm . Additional information can be found above.
Tuesday 30 June teachers’ day. All children attend the groups together, during the first part of the day we would appreciate if parents would be able to stay. Please make note of this in your agenda
Teachers’day at the Ukkepukkies
Like every year, the teachers like to celebrate their birthdays together! This will take place on 30 June next. We would like it if all children could come to school all dressed up! This year’s theme will be all about summer. If all children could come to school dressed in white with a touch of summer. Think of coloured flowers in the hairs, flower garlands, a blouse in Hawaii print or many other things you could think of. The children will have the afternoon off.
Sign-in list for cleaning
The end of the school year is approaching rather quickly, and some of you know that we like to ask parents to help us out cleaning our materials in the group. As usual, we will create a sign-in list which we will hang up at the group doors as of mid-June. Please ask the teacher, if you cannot find the list.
Kinder EHBO (First aid for children)
On 29th September we like to organise an evening particularly for parents of our spelenderwijs group: Kinder EHBO (First aid for children). Approximately 20 persons can apply for the evening, which means that we have about 5 places available for every group. It is possible to make an extra list with back-up. For this class, we will create a sign-in list as well, which will be hung up at the group as of end of June. Take note: we have only a limited amount of places available!
Our very last school day, before the summer holiday, will be on Thursday 9th July. Afterwards, all toddlers will be able to enjoy their summer holiday!
Report cards On Wednesday 8th July all children of groups 1-8 will receive their report cards, which the teacher will discuss with the children. In case you would still like to speak to the teacher, please contact the group teacher. If the group teacher would like to have a conversation with you, the teacher will send you an invitation.
Could you please keep in mind to check the children’s heads thoroughly for nits and lice. Should anything be found, please take care of your child’s head and after an anti-lice treatment he or she can come to school again. The next lice check will be held on Wednesday 1st July next.
