The Life Cycle of a Frog

The children in Ms Audreys class, spent a week learning all about the life cycle of a frog.They made a frog face, painted a large frog and pasted their photo on the tadpoles they painted. They also did a life cycle plate, and a hanger mobile.

They learnt:

  • what a life cycle is
  • why caring for the environment is important
  • and they are capable of saying the 3 stages of a frogs’ life.

Learning and dancing!

Friday 29th November saw the Year 1 class on stage for the special assembly.  Together with their class teacher Ms Annalise and the class LSA Ms Liandra they prepared 3 songs related to the learning of the English language.  The class danced along happily to songs from the Happy House CD – songs about the colours of the rainbow and the numbers.  Studies show that pupils learn more when they are motivated and surely catchy songs that get the pupils moving are bound to motivate them and above all make learning fun.

Resources used:

3 songs from the Happy House 1 CD

Special Assembly Backgrounds to songs

The story of the three apples

The story of the three apples was developed in November.  Thanks to this story the children learnt to recognise colours in trees and apples and they also worked with basic number work counting and subtracting each time an apple dropped from the tree.

The story was introduced with a PowerPoint presentation and then the pupils created their own books designing freehand the different pictures that make up the story.  It was wonderful to watch the little ones busy working and hey presto their own book was done and proudly presented by the little authors :)

EkoSkola Seminar

As part of the Eko Skola programme, last Monday being the 25th of November, we were invited to participate in a seminar. Many other church and state schools attended for this seminar. We went with Ms Brenda and Ms Pierline our two Eko Skola link teachers. We were divided into two groups – one group for the adults and the other group for us students. We had the opportunity to get to know more what other schools are doing and share this good practice during the Eko Skola school activities. During the work shop, we even planted seeds in some soil to have our own tree. The seeds represented our national Maltese tree which is ‘(Is-Sigra tal-Gharghar) Sandarac Gum Tree’. It is an evergreen tree. It is capable of growing 6 to 15M in height. It is a strictly protected tree.

It was a wonderful experience and we learned a lot of different facts. We hope that we attend similar events in the future coming.
