My Special Friend

Year 6 students got creative when they designed bookmarks of their favourite nature’s gem. Through this activity, the students became more aware of the fact that these creatures need our protection. Through slogans written on the bookmarks, the students hope to pass this message on to others.

Up to You – Pollution!

An interesting activity about sea pollution and how fish suffer from it was organised for K1.4/5 pupils and is described below.

1. The pupils watched an introductory clip.

2. The practical activity was introduced and explained.

3. Some oil and cocoa powder was poured in the clean water.

4. The water is not clean anymore!

5. Fish made of cotton wool were put in the water.

6. It could be seen (and explained) that the fish cannot swim in the dirty water and will die.

Making a Bird Table

Pupils from KG1.3 embarked on this do-it-yourself project!

Planning our bird table using Active Inspire Software on the Interactive Whiteboard.

Collaborating together in order to assemble it.

Painting it.

The finished bird table in our school yard.

Vanishing Homes

This activity was about Maltese habitats and how humans affect these habitats and as a consequence affect the creatures that live in them.

Through a slide show this topic was introduced to year 5 students

Then the students played  The Vanishing Home Games – an experience which helped them understand the topic better.

Something Fishy

Year 2 pupils have learned about some of the common but beautiful shallow water creatures around our shores by watching a video and participating in an interesting game. we are also sure that, through this activity, the pupils have developed respect for these creatures.

Round Robin

Year 3 students have learned about robins.They have found information about this wonderful bird and finally made a robin mobile.

Picture it!

Kg1 classes have adapted this activity to celebrate their many different nature related activities which were carried out during the year. These included a visit to Xrobb L-Ghagin nature Park, planting seeds/ bulbs etc, nature observation on the school  and countless other activities in the classroom all revolving round monthly topics such as gardens/ birds/ the weather etc..

The finished display:

The various components which make up the display: Bird Watching; Observing trees up close; Exploring the school gardens and the visit to Xrobb L-Ghagin nature Park.

Out of Africa

Students in year 5.2 learned about migration during this activity. The students completed the Migration story by filling in the corresponding speech bubbles and later made perching swallows. Just to remember that millions of birds fly thousands of kilometres across the globe during migration season…..

sea chains

Year 4 students have discovered how living things at sea depend on each other and how our behaviour affects them.  They  created sea chains (food chains that occur in a marine environment) and also thought up slogans to encourage others to take care of the marine environment.

I Promise

KG2  and year 1 pupils have learned about one of our mammals – the hedgehog which faces daily dangers from our lifestyles. They have promised to be on the look out when driving through country roads and to tell the driver to drive slowly because of hedgehogs.
