Show and Tell

The Year 3.1 students were given the opportunity to share some information with the class about something which they really like to do or someone/something they like/love.  Some students prepared a PowerPoint Presentation, others made posters and charts.  Many students talked and brought their pet to school whilst many others talked about their favourite toy/s.  Another student talked about sports cars as he likes to read and know everything there is about these cars.  Someone else talked to us about the activities and outings organised by the Mellieħa Scout Group.   I really enjoyed listening to each and everyone of you!  Well done!

Social Studies Fieldwork – Għadira Nature Reserve

Across the curricula we integrate key sustainable issues in teaching and learning.  Indeed, as part of the Social Studies syllabus students are given the opportunity to visit a nature reserve and carry out the given fieldwork. On the 28th of May, the Year 3 students visited the Għadira Nature Reserve.  There, they had the opportunity to see the different trees that grow in Malta and observe and learn more information about the flora and fauna of the Maltese islands.  Furthermore, the pupils also discussed how they can help protect the environment.  This fieldwork helped students to understand better what they had learned in class.

Mathematics outside the classroom

The Year 3.1 students have been learning about hours, minute and seconds.  To better understand how long a second or a minute is they had to do various activities.  For example:  They had to see how many times they could skip a rope, run around the garden and go up and down the stairs in one minute.  Such an activity was also linked to Physical Education.

After writing down their results, students had to compare them with a friend.  They realized that their results were different as is their agility when doing such activities.

Capacity

The year 3.2 were busy learning about capacity by participating in hands-on activities to help them understand this topic in a more concrete way.The students filled different containers with coloured water to learn about litres and millilitres.  They took part in several investigative tasks, such as pouring 1L of water into containers of different sizes, finding out how many containers of a specific amount needed to be poured into a 1L container to fill it up, reading the scale on different containers to find out how much liquid was poured in them, as well as pouring two different amounts of liquid into a larger container to find their total and recording their answers by drawing the capacity on a given jug.

The Malta National Aquarium

The Year 3 classes visited the Malta National Aquarium.  Students were so excited to see the diverse fish in the tanks.  They asked many interesting questions to Mr Jack, our guide for the day.  Indeed ,by the end of the tour, they learned more about the marine life of Malta and how we can protect it. Afterwards, in groups, students did an activity where they had to put the animal flashcard under the correct habitat.  Finally students drew one of the habitats and two animals that live there.Submitted by Ms Miranda Cauchi, Yr 3.1
