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.

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.

More information on the Tetra ghall-Istrina Initiative can be found here:

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.
