Turtle release at Ġnejna Bay

The year 4 students had the experience of a life time watching the release of turtles which were being taken care of by Nature Trust during rehabilitation.

An anti-plastic campaign followed the turtle release. Students were engaged in fieldwork including filtering sand to find plastic particles.

The school would like to thank the Mayor, Mr Paul Vella, for offering this opportunity for our students. This will surely be a day to remember 🙂

 

Fieldwork at Mġarr

For their Social Studies Fieldwork both Year 4 classes went around Mġarr and observed different areas while answering questions on their fieldwork booklet. Both students and teachers enjoyed it to the full 😊

Fractions

Students have learnt about halves, quarters, thirds and eights. After sharing the learning outcomes and the success criteria, students had a presentation where they had to identify which shapes are divided into equal parts, and the fraction of each part being shaded. During group work the students had to divide their shapes into equal parts and shade their parts according to the fraction being told.

Our Favourite Things…

Students were given the opportunity to share some information with the class about something they like or love and to share information about their favourite book. Some students prepared a presentation while others made posters and charts. I really enjoyed listening to each and every one of you! Well done!

Flat shapes…

Today’s Math lesson was about flat shapes and their properties. First students had a presentation where they had to try and guess the name of the hidden flat shape. Then students had time to discuss the properties of the various shapes. Finally they had the opportunity to engage in hands-on experience using geoboards to construct and investigate the properties of plane shapes.

World Book Day Comptetion

The Year 4 students participated in a competition held during World Book Day by the National Literacy Agency. The students were awarded two books each following their in-class presentations about books they read. The students also prepared costumes to impersonate their favourite character from the book they read.

Well done students 🙂

Building a Fan using Lego WeDo

The Yr 4.1 students created their own LEGO fans which had to be programmed using Lego Wedo. This session was organised by the class teacher, Ms Angelique Attard with the support of the Digital Literacy Teacher.With the help of the Digital Literacy Support teacher Ms Laura Schembri, the children built a duck by using 6 pieces of Lego for their first activity.

In the second activity the children were divided into groups and together they had to build their own fan by using the Lego WeDo kit. After building the fan they then generated code causing the fan to work.

Doubling & Halving Scavenger Hunt

The Yr 4.1 class of Ms Angelique Attard had a maths lesson with a difference. The children were divided into groups and participated in a scavenger hunt held in the playground.

The children really enjoyed themselves using their tablets to scan the provided QR codes which had been distributed around the space and writing down the sums on a recording sheet. This activity helped the children to move around while learning. The winning team was also rewarded!
