In preparation for the great feast of the Church, Easter, as a class we participated in an activity which explains better the meaning of the last supper and of Mass. I prepared the setting, held at the school’s yard, and the students got all the props. Step by step I explained each symbol and the meaning of it. The students really enjoyed it  because they went back in time and they now know the significance of Mass and of Easter celebrations.

Our last outing was a visit to the Torri San Lucjan limits of Marsaxlokk. The students familiarised themselves with aquaculture and the whole process from hatching fish’s eggs until the fish are put into fishfarms or are exported abroad. The students really enjoyed the outing and were so curious whilst they asked a lot of questions.

Year 5 students invited a fisherman to school because they had a set of questions to ask him.  In fact this was one of their Social Studies task – an interview with a fisherman.
Students listened very carefully to what he had to say,especially when he told them his story at sea. He got a lot of equipment too, and he explained to them how it is used. Students were given a handout provided by him showing different kinds of fish and a catching method which was demonstrated live by him.
The talk was very interesting and students were eagerly asking questions.

Students were asked to choose an activity they liked most during their fist outing at San Anton Gardens,where there they were engaged in a treasure hunt while visiting The Malta Traditions Exhibition.
1. Our fist school outing – The activity that we really liked on our 1st school outing was that we went a 100 years back in time and we learned more about our country Malta. —  Martina,Veronique and Mattea
2.My favourite part of the outing was when we entered the secret location :There were a lot of beautiful sculptures, painting and photographs of more than a 100 years ago.  If you decide to go there, I’m sure you will have a very nice time. – Julia Cauchi
3.The most thing that I liked about San Anton Gardens was that I worked together as a team with other year 5 school friends. We learnt and we had fun together especially during the treasure hunt! I hope that some day I will go again. – Maria Bugeja

Experiencing the Last Supper Together

Short paragraph written by the students about this experience.


The day before, in class, we discussed in detail the steps of the Last Supper.  Jesus gathered his disciples in a room to celebrate the Passover Meal. He knew it was the last re-union for him before he was going to die and rise from death. So as a class we dressed up and met in the school’s prayer room.  Ms. Marija explained what was on the table and all the setting Then we started the process of the washing up of the feet, the institution of the Eucharist, remembering what Jesus did and we even said together the Our Father.  We really understood better the meaning of the Last Supper and what we precisely do each time during mass.  It was an experience which we will never forget.

Year 5 outing to the south of Malta – Write up by Ms Amanda’s Class

The outing consisted of a 4 hour bus tour around the south of Malta. It was very interesting mainly because we had a guide with us all the time who shared a lot of historical information with us. We passed by Valletta, then we visited Senglea, Cospicua and Vittoriosa. Here we saw La Vallette’s sword and hat which are found in a museum.

Our last stop was in Marsaxlokk, Malta’s fishing village.
We really enjoyed ourselves and we will never forget this outing.

What the students had to say..
It was a bright sunny day and us, the year five students, went on a tour at the South of Malta.  The bus was waiting for us, we hopped on and there was a tour guide who was going to be with us in the outing.  He explained to us about some Maltese cities in the South of Malta,also about some grandmasters and the Knights of St. John. The we stopped and visited the three cities.  We took a long walk from Cospicua to Senglea and to Vittoriosa.  We also took a quick look at the sword of De La Vallette at the museum in Birgu.  After we went to MarsaXlokk and had something to eat.  On the way back to school we were talking about the outing and we all agreed that it was one of the most interesting and fun outings ever.
