eTwinning Activity at Ta’ Ħaġrat Temples

The Year 6.2 students are participating in an eTwinning project with students from San Lawrenz, Gozo. An activity was carried out with Ms Laura Schembri, the digital literacy support teacher this morning, at Ta Ħaġrat Temples.
The students used their tablets and QR codes to find clues and information about these temples. It was great fun and the children participated eagerly.
The children had already done some research about the site prior to the activity and were well-prepared 🙂

Number Recognition and Number Value

Children were given different opportunities to learn about number recognition and number value. They used play dough to create the numbers with and blocks to visualise the number value. 

They used bottle caps to make up stories of a given number.

They were often asked to solve problems, such as to create a 4-sided shape with 5 sticks. When they sorted out that they had an extra stick, they came out with different ways of using this extra stick.

When learning about patterns, they were also asked to create different patterns using caps and sticks. Since learning from each other is very important in our classroom, children explained their patterns to their classmates.

Revising Letters & Writing Words

After learning a number of English letter names and sounds, children were told that we will be using different means of writing. After going outside in the yard, they were given a piece of chalk each and asked to write different letters which they learnt. Later on, they were asked to write words using the letters they knew.
