Book Launch… L-Ingwanti Magiċi

The school hosted the launch of the book L-Ingwanti Magiċi. This book has been recently written by an emergent author, Ms Anabelle Warrington, who also happens to be the school’s support literacy teacher. The launch kicked off with a short play about the pleasure of reading directed by Ms Angelique Attard, Yr 4.1 teacher. Following the recital, a presentation was held by Ms Eleanor Vella, HoD, whereby she explained all the work being done by the national literacy agency. 

Later, a number of students interviewed the author. Corazon Mizzi, who is both a local singer and a reading ambassador, read a chapter from the book. A workshop for parents and students followed. The show came to an end with a beautiful song by Corazon herself. We hope that in the near future we may have students from our school who might become authors. 

The school would like to thank Mr David Muscat, CEO from the National Literacy Agency and Horizon Publications for presenting all students with a free copy of the book and for attending this event. Special thanks goes to Ms Josephine Mifsud, college principal and Ms Corazon Mizzi.

Finally the school would like to thank all members of staff, especially the assistant heads, and the students and parents for their constant support 🙂

Congratulations to Ms Anabelle Warrington… We look forward to the sequel of L-Ingwanti Magiċi.

Dinja Waħda…

The Green Club students, together with Ms Rodgers, assistant head, have been taking care of the school garden. They have planted flowers in the front garden to make the school more welcoming. They have sewn papaya seeds and hopefully we might have papaya trees growing in our school garden. All this work is related to Dinja Waħda projects.


The class was divided in stations.  Each station was given a container filled with the following: coins, pins, paper clips and butterfly pins.  Students had to write (on their mini whiteboards) how many they thought there were in each container without counting; thus estimating (guessing).

After, students were asked to say what made them guess that number (their observations).  Some noted that since coins are larger than pins they came to the conclusion that there were less coins.  Others noticed that even though two of the containers were the same, one was filled slightly more.

Finally, they counted the objects found in each container to check their estimate.  Furthermore they linked what they were doing in class with the outside world as they noticed that sometimes in competitions people have to estimate how many balloons, tickets …are there in a box.

Fractions – One half Year 3.1

Each group was given some plasticine and cooking cutters.  Each member of the group had to divide his/her shape in half.  The students pointed out that both halves had to be of the same size and when they were once put together they made one whole.  Some students also realized that when the halves of the shapes are halved again they become quarters.  Then, each group had to cut the given paper shapes in half and glue them on their copybooks.

In another lesson, in groups, students had to tick whether the pictures of the given real life objects were divided in half.  They also had to divide other real life objects in half and draw an object/thing and hen divide it in half as well.  Students also did similar activities on the IWB.

This week students have been learning about prepositions.  Two groups were given a supermarket picture and question cards.  The questions were about the position of things and people found in the picture.  Students had to write their answers on their mini whiteboards.  The other groups had to programme the Bee-Bot correctly so that it would stop on the correct picture according to the given flashcard.

Jam Sandwich

During the English Creative writing lessons students had to write instructions on how to make a jam sandwich.  First, students prepared the sandwich themselves.  Whilst preparing the sandwich, the students started saying the instructions orally.  They sued short simple sentences, bossy verbs and sequencer words, without even knowing that they to do so when writing a set of instructions.  Therefore they learned by doing.  After eating their delicious sandwich, the students wrote the instructions.

Science Lesson -Magentic Materials

Students had to guess which of the following objects are magnetic:  key, 2c coin, aluminium foil, scissors, plastic spoon and a nail.  A video abut magnetism was shown.  The class teacher asked the children if they wished to change their previous answer/s and give reasons for the change/s.  Afterwards, we used magnets to check which objects are magnetic.
