Feast of St. Martin

Wednesday, 11th November was the feast of St. Martin.  We celebrated this day with a Special Assembly to highlight the life of this saint.  Some teachers had in class activities.  Year 5 classes backed a cake typical of this feast.  The children were divided into groups and they followed the recipe to bake delicious healthy cakes made with various nuts and dried fruit. This was followed by mathematical,  creative writing and comprehension exercises.

A pleasant surprise

The Nurture Group organized a talk on the dangers of playing with fire.  Mr. Anthony Portelli, from the Civil Protection Department, offered to bring a fire engine to school and explain how it works to all the students.  Children had a chance to get a close up view of this vehicle that is so popular with young kids.
