Through this activity, students learnt about migration through a game and a drawing and craft activity. Children played a game about migration in which they learnt about the dangers faced by swallows during migration. Then they made cardboard swallows which were displayed in class and ‘migrated’ from one side of the classroom to another.
Students were familiarised with 6 birds found in Malta, namely, the Sparrow (Għasfur tal-bejt), Sardinian Warbler (Bufula sewda), Black Redstart (Kudiross iswed), White Wagtail (Zakak Abjad), Robin (Pitirross) and the Starling (Sturnell). The activity consisited of a powerpoint presentation about the six birds in which students learnt about each bird and heard their song. Then students coloured pictures of these birds which were displayed in class and on the Green Board. A game followed in which students represented birds and raced to a box in which there were cards with the names of types of food birds eat. Students learned a lot about birds from this activity and enjoyed themselves very much.
For this activity, students were required to set up a bird table in the school garden. They stocked it regularly with food for the birds. Among our guests there were sparrows, sardinian warblers and also robins and black redstarts. Studetns enjoyed the activity as they had fun watching birds eating on the table.
In this Dinja Waħda activity, students became more aware of the repect we shoud show towards robins. The robin is a migratory bird that migrates south in autumn. Robins arrive in Malta in mid-October and some of them spend the winter here. In March, robins migrate back north to reproduce. In class, students discussed a story about a boy who used to trap robins. Then they made pom-pom robins and displayed them in class and on the Green Board.
On Wednesday 10th March 2010 Year 6 students visited is-Simar and Għadira Nature reserves as part of the Dinja Waħda environmental project. Students were divided into two groups and each group visited one of the reserves. The educational outing consisted of a short talk about wildlife found in the reserves and a tour around the reserves. Children had the opportunity to do some bird watching sessions as well. Students were encouraged to take pictures of plants, insects and animals that they saw in the reserve. All students who attended said that it was a relaxing and wonderful experience as they all felt close to nature. Here are some pictures of our outing!
On Wednesday 3rd March 2010 our school participated in the College Futsal Tournament organised at the Centenary Stadium Ta’ Qali. The teams included students from Years 5, 6 and 7. Our school played against teams from other Primary schools within St. Theresa College, namely, Santa Venera, Msida and Birkirkara. Our students managed to obtain a draw against Birkirkara Primary, lost against Msida but won against Santa Venera. Although we did not manage to pass to semi-finals it was still a wonderful experience for our students; both players and spectators.
Here are some pictures of our teams and supperters!
