Learning Fun

In our class, the children are learning through the different activities and having fun as can be seen from this slide show.

Kinder 2 Activity Day

Today, 30th November, parents came to our school to get a glimpse of what takes place in class.  The Kindergarten Assistants carried on with their normal routine while parents watched their children eagerly participate in the various activities.  First, they looked at the weather and sang action songs on the subject.  Then the children carried on with their singing and movements to the delight of their proud parents.

Kindergarten Activity Day

On 1st December, the Kindergarten Assistants held an Activity Day for parents.  The children sang Rhymes and songs on the various topics tackled so far in class.  They also showed their parents how eager they were to use the new Interactive Whiteboards. The parents were delighted to see their four-year olds participate in the various activities prepared by their teachers.

Merit Day for Kindergarten children

Today, 13th June was a special day for the Kindergarten kids at our school.  Merit day was held for the first time.  First the proud parents saw their children participate in some sports activities.  Then the grown-ups had some fun themselves when they took part in races.  All this was coordinated by Ms. Charlotte Riolo.  After a short talk by the Head of school on the significance of Merit Day, everyone made their way to the classrooms.  There all the children were presented with a Certificate of Merit by their Kindergarten Assistant.

Our School won the eTwinning Back to School Campaign

Forty-seven projects were submitted from Primary Schools around Malta and Gozo.  Our school competed with the Project: A4 Talking Album and won.  Consequently, Ms Odette’s Kindergarten class is taking part in an eTwinning Project with two other partners from Europe – a KG class from Ireland and another one from Romania.  The title of the project is:  ‘Christmas fun and excitement in the Early Years’.  The children are making Christmas Cards which will be posted to the Project Partners.  They are also doing several crafts related to Christmas.  Photos will be uploaded on the eTwinning Portal and the children will also be recorded singing Christmas carols in their native language.  The aim of the project is to teach children  about Christmas celebrations throughout Europe and to make them appreciate and respect other cultures.  Furthermore, our school won digital devices sponsored by IMS Malta Ltd and Exigy.

Open Day for Kindergarten classes

This morning parents had a chance to relive their childhood school days in their children’s classrooms.   Parents could get an idea of how their children spent their morning at school.  And the kids were more their willing to show their parents how smart they all are as they eagerly participated in the activities prepared by their teachers.  They sang rhymes and played various games to impress their doting parents.

Summer holidays

The youngest children in our school captured the spirit of summer in this frieze with strong brush stokes of vibrant blue  superimposed by the outline of underwater creatures.  This effect was created with plastic moulds of seahorses, starfish, crabs, lobsters and fish dipped in paint.  On the beach, we have the typical fisherman and the children playing.  A big yellow sun reminds us all that summer is here and that the scholastic year is over.  Enjoy your summer holidays!

  

Happy Father’s Day

The World Cup is on every man’s mind at the moment and in the Kindergarten classes football was the theme that inspired these Father’s Day Cards. 
          

 The teachers did not stop there, however.  They prepared activities to familiarize children with the flags of their favourite teams.

    

 By the end of the morning the children could recognize the flags of quite a good number of countries.  Then small flags were fixed on the appropriate countries on a map of the world.  The relative distance from Malta to these countries was indicated by coloured string.

However, it is this poem with their child’s footprint that is going to leave the most lasting impression on most fathers.
