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.

Year 5
 
On Tuesday 28th October, the Year 5 classes went on a outing at San Anton Gardens.  There we visited the Traditions Exhibition; several models showing old Maltese jobs and Maltese traditional objects were exhibited. It was very interesting because as students we emerged ourselves in those times and went back100 years.  Together with this, we as students spent the morning doing a treasure hunt all around the gardens and close to the Presidents Palace, where we learnt a lot of things.  It was an interesting outing especially because we learnt a lot and we had fun together!  The school received a token (a Maltese eight-pointed cross candle holder) as a sign of participation in this treasure hunt.
Thank you.
Regards,
Marija Farrugia
 
Here are some photos of my students, using the interactive board in a Maths lesson.
Place value and Rounding are two main topics that we have already covered this year. Using the interactive board, students were asked to participate in games whilst learning and having fun, understanding mainly the value of every single digit in an number (place value) and learning to round up a number to the closest ten/hundred/thousand.  Students loved each activity!
