Valletta Fieldwork

The students of Mr Cassar, in year 6.1, have been out and about in the capital city of Valletta. Students learn best when on site. The Valletta fieldwork is part of the social studies curriculum.

The students had a narrow escape with the weather since the minute they set foot on the bus to come back to school it started raining.

They visited various historical places such as the Aubergue de Castille, the President’s Palace, St. John’s Cathedral, and many other interesting sites.  A short break followed in the Barrakka Gardens while admiring the beauty of the Grand Harbour. Through such fieldwork the children had the opportunity to appreciate Malta’ s cultural heritage first hand.

On the 16th October 2015, the year 6 students had the opportunity to learn more about the Great Siege of Malta. They visited the Armoury and the Throne room in the Grandmaster’s palace in Valletta. The Armoury houses one of the finest collection of weapons of the period of the knights of Malta. Spears, swords, shields, heavy armour and other weapons are on display. Later, children took part in a parade where some of them took the role of Knights and some pretended to be the Turkish soldiers.


This event was organised by the Education Department in collaboration with Heritage Malta.
