Make way for the Dinos!

Dinosaurs has been our main theme for class for these last few weeks. It is a particularly interesting subject that entwines nature and fantasy which are both always very popular topics with children. This theme was received very well by the students of the class K1.1. They very much enjoyed the cooking activity that was organised and which involved making beautiful beastly dinosaur paws! They looked so authentic that none of the children could keep their eyes (or hands!) off them! They were simply done by moulding the right amount of pastry with some flour and adding almonds on the edges to create the illusion of a dinosaur’s nails. Apart from this, many other different types of dinosaur crafts were done in class and most importantly, the children got to go home for the weekend with a dinosaur headband and a pair of big dinosaur hands to wear. It was the greatest reward seeing them all happy and eager waiting for their parents to see them. It was a great time for everyone thanks to beautiful dinosaur activities and ideas.

Dressing Up

Ms Margaret`s class did a dress up activity about the topic clothes. The children discussed different occupations and different uniforms. Later they all dressed up and pretended to be firemen, policemen, builders, hairdressers and doctors.  They enjoyed themselves wearing different clothes. It was a very interesting activity in which the children involved themselves well while pretending to be someone else.

Monsters have invaded!

This week’s topic for Ms. Audrey’s children was Monsters. One of their activities was to help them develop their PINCER grip. During an activity with plasticine, the children were given spaghetti and they had to put thin and wider pasta through it. xx The other activity was forming monsters out of plasticine and pasta.


Erġajna bdejna b’Jannar!

Jannar kiefer u bid-dwiefer!  Dan jurina li dan ix-xahar normalment ikun kiesaħ u jkollna ħafna ġranet xitwin, bix-xita u bil-bard.  Issa l-istaġun tax-xitwa jinsab fl-aqwa tiegħu!  Dan huwa l-ewwel xahar tas-sena u fih hemm 31 jum.

Matul dan ix-xahar ukoll ikollna bosta festi sbieħ.  Fis-6 ta’ Jannar issir il-festa tal-Epifanija li tfakkarna meta t-tliet slaten maġi sabu lil Ġesu’ u tawh rigali ta’ deheb, inċens u mirra.  Fit-22 ta’ Jannar infakkru lil San Publiju, l-ewwel isqof ta’ Malta u li huwa wkoll il-padrun tal-Floriana u wieħed mill-padruni ta’ Malta.  Fil-31 ta’ Jannar issir il-festa ta’ San Ġwann Bosco, qassis taljan li tant ħadem għall-ġid tat-tfal u taż-żgħażagħ.

F’Jannar niftakru b’mod speċjali fl-importanza tas-siġar li jinsabu madwarna u niftakru f’kemm għandna nieħdu ħsiebhom. Fl-iskola jkollna Jum is-Siġar u lkoll nieħdu pjaċir inħawlu xi siġra jew tnejn!
