Nature Board

 

As part of our DINJA WAĦDA projects, we have prepared our Nature Board for Term 2.

 

This is related to the importance of protecting our trees and all the plantations and insects that come to life in this habitat. In Malta, Birdlife has an ongoing project called Foresta 2000 whereby different people foster trees and forest wardens look after the area very passionately.

Here is an interesting link about it – Foresta 2000: Forest for the Future

Integrating the skill of drawing symmetrical shapes through Art!
‘Symmetry’ is when both sides of a pattern or object are exactly the same.  
 
The students loved to learn about symmetry and the beauty of the different symmetrical shapes that we see around us every day. 
 
All the girls drew a symmetrical shape of their own choice and these were displayed in the classroom.

Intervista ma’ membru tal-familja

Waqt l-ewwel term tas-sena t-tfal libsu ż-żarbun ta’ ġurnalista u għamlu intervista lil membru tal-familja tagħhom.

Huma waħħlu din l-intervista fuq ‘chart’ flimkien ma’ ritratt u dawn kienu esponutu fil-kuritur tal-iskola fejn seta’ jaqrahom kulħadd.

Din kienet esperjenza li t-tfal verament ħadu pjaċir jagħmlu.

All Saints Activity (Year 4 Roses)

Students were asked to bring a picture of their favourite saint and together we decorated a hanging bookmark for the classroom. Children were shown a few short stories of different saints. They learnt that everybody can do their best to live a saintly life, be it a child or an adult. We can all pray for the intercession of saints when asking for a special grace!

VOLCANIC ERUPTION – YEAR 4 ROSES


The students were very interested in the lesson related to volcanoes, particularly those of Mt Etna and Mt Vesuvius.
They were also fascinated with the vivid description and visual images of different volcanic eruptions.
They themselves made up their own labelled diagram using their own creative touches to create a colourful display of volcanoes in the classroom!

As part of our Action Plan, the year 4 s focused on the life of St. Phippine Dushescne.  The children researched about her life and reflected upon on how they can be more like her.  They presented their research and reflections on charts which were then displayed on our boards in the corridor for all to admire.  St. Philippine is indeed an inspiration for all.  She was a woman of courage,  prayer and action.

I PROMISE CARD – DINJA WAHDA (YEAR 4 CLASSES)

Students of the Sacred Heart Junior School will be participating in various ‘Dinja Waħda’ Activities this year. Year 4 students have started with their first activity last week – the ‘I PROMISE CARD’.
Students were shown videos and given a thorough explanation on the beauty and speciality of chameleons and why we should always let them free. It is illegal to capture them, keep them as pets and even moreso, kill them.
Each student made a promise to protect this special species and their cards were hung beautifully on our new NATURE BOARD!!!

 ‘An organised environment means an organised mind!’
Students were encouraged to keep an organised environment at home where they can focus on their work without distractions.
With the Annual Tests round the corner some students were eager to share some photos with you of their well-kept study areas.
Well done girls!!!

Year 4 outing to Rabat.

The Year 4s went on an outing to Rabat on a lovely day in Spring.  We had the opportunity to take a tour on the fun train and visit Rabat, Mdina and Mtarfa.  We then proceeded to visit St. Paul ‘s catacombs.  The children visited the largest late Roman underground cemetery in Malta.  These catacombs testify the earliest and largest archaeological evidence of Christianity in Malta.

Women who made a change in the world

 

Throughout the ages women faced many challenges to achieve and succeed in roles which were male-dominated. The students found information about different women who made great positive changes in the world and these were displayed beautifully outside the classroom corridor.
