As part of our Year 5 curriculum, we went to Marsaxlokk to work out the fieldwork. This time the students got their LearnPads and filled in all the answers on it. They were very excited and they took photos related to the topic: is-Sajd u l-Akkwakultura.

 

 

Nowadays the management of waste is of national importance.  The campaign named ‘Tetra ghall-Istrina’ will be encouraging any individuals (including Schools, Local Councils, hotels, catering establishments etc.) in Malta and Gozo to join  in increasing the recycling and separation of packaged waste.  The main aim of the campaign is to collect as many cartons of milk and juices (any brand), which unfortunately till last year were never considered as recyclable waste which could be disposed in the Grey bag.   Our school participated in this initiative for a better environment, also as an Eco Skola school initiative whilst also  helping an Istrina initiative.

Green MT were positively surprised at the amount of tetra the school has collected.

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!

This year’s first outing was a visit to the Toy Museum in Valletta.  It is a 3-floor house full of old traditional Maltese toys some of which are 50 to 100 years old.  The students were amazed to see that these toys still work nowadays.  This outing is linked to the Social Studies Unit – Nilagħbu.

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!!!
 

Year 3 help the Junior School to learn more about St Martin during assembly.

 

The Year 5 students of the Junior School remind us of the important journey St Philippine Duchesne made 200 years ago to reach America. Her journey was long and difficult however her determination and qualities of courage and love of prayer teach us so much!

 

In order to appreciate the many wonderful qualities of St Philippine Duchesne, the Junior School shall be working on a different quality every month.

Last month the students worked on being kind and caring, just as St Philippine was towards those around her. During Mass, one student per class was awarded a ‘St Philippine Duchesne Certificate’ for being extra kind and caring.
