TIP – Teach, Inspire, Protect… An Erasmus+ Journey Begins…

The first transnational meeting of a new partnership in the project Teach, Inspire, Protect (TIP) kicked off with a tree planting event at Salina Nature Reserve. This is a 3 year partnership between Birdlife Malta, the Ministry of Education and Employment (MEDE), Learning Through Landscapes UK, Birdlife Spain, Innovative and Creative (INAK) Slovakia and our school.

All partners introduced themselves with presentations following a planning session with regards to the way forward with the project.

The second day was an intensive day during which intellectual outputs were discussed. The school would like to thank the Mayor, Mr Paul Vella, for taking our guests onsite at Ta’ Ħaġrat Temples in the beautiful locality of Mġarr.

Esplora Outing

The Year 1, 2 and 3 classes went  to Esplora Interactive Science Centre to discover the science behind certain Christmas wonders.  Among other things, students learned how reindeers, like balloons, can fly up into the sky, how some things may seem invisible to us etc…  Afterwards, students were given the opportunity to explore some of the educational and interactive exhibits about various scientific topics.  These exhibits helped students realize more how science is related to our daily life.  Furthermore, students were given an insight on how things actually work,for example; a group of Year 3.2 students created their own animation.  The Year 3 students understood better some topics, for example: sound, which had already been covered in class.

It was truly a fun and educational experience! 😊

Addition

Students used the tens frames and caps to help them count a 2-digit number with a 1-digit number that total  20 or less.  Using these resources from their Maths Toolbox students realised that they can add numbers in any order and get the same result.
