Reading books

Brian Vassallo | Y3, Y3

In year 3 we are learning the importance of reading and the magic of books. Together with our teacher and LSE we went to our school’s library and borrowed a book. We got to look for a book we like, and after choosing one, we went to enjoy the story and read in our yard. After finishing our book, we got to swap our chosen book with another borrowed book of a friend. All of us read at least one book, and some, even two or three books!

Thank you MS Roseann and Ms Charmaine

Jellyfish 2

Brian Vassallo | Y5, Y5

This week, at Mariam Albatool School, we continued working on a project about Jellyfish. Hence I am posting the same information I posted before. below are some new photos of the project.Jellyfish puled long ocean currents for millions of years, well before dinosaurs did on Earth. These jelly-like creatures are abundant in both cold and warm ocean waters, in deep water, and along coastlines. Despite the name ‘fish’, they aren’t actually fish—they’re invertebrates or animals with no backbones.We would like to thank Ms Sharon Balzan, Ms Antonella Vassallo, and Ms Denise Micallef for their meticulous planning, implementation and evaluation of the project. Very well done.

Hand Printing

Brian Vassallo | KG2A, KG1C

Hand painting is a great way for children to explore, learn and develop through sensory play. When children can feel the cool, squishy texture of the paint and experiment with colour and patterns, it encourages their creativity. It’s also a good way for children to express emotions.

This is exactly what Ms Sara Chetcuti, one of our Kg teachers was doing in class today.

Thank you for inviting me in class. It was a really pleasurable and enjoyable experience !

Very well done to Ms Sara Chetcuti, Ms Yvonne Busuttil, Ms Sharone Micallef and Ms Miriam Micallef!

Dinja Wahda Activity – Il-Pitirross

Brian Vassallo | Dinja Waħda Activities, Y3, Y3


Today, we learnt about robins, or “pitirrossi” in Maltese. With the help of our educators, we painted robins and cut them. We even named our robins! 


Activities like these help raise awareness environmental amongst the students. Students understand the importance of nature, flora, and fauna, and learn how to better take care of our world (for us and for other creatures.

The school administration would like to thank Ms Roseanne Dimech and Ms Charmaine Shwidi for this initiative.


Comic competition

Brian Vassallo | Y4, Y4

As a school, we have decided to participate in the competition entitled: Water-be the change. The students had to create a comic about the importance of water conservation. One entry from each class (Years 4-6) was selected. The other comics are going to be displayed in the school corridors and all the students are going to be given a certificate for their participation and effort.

Meeting a fisherman

Meeting a fisherman!

Today a fisherman came to visit one of our kindergarten classes,. He was invited by Ms Romina Bugeja to speak about his profession and to present some of his tools to the children. He spoke about the fishing tackle that is used by fishermen when fishing.

He showed the children some hooks, lines, sinkers, floats, rods, reels, baits, lures, nets, gaffs, traps, waders and tackle boxes.He also demonstrated the use of the gear that is attached to the end of a fishing line such as swivels, sinkers, floats, split rings and wire, snaps, beads, spoons, blades, spinners and clevises to attach spinner blades to fishing lures.He also taught the children how to make simple and complex knots and how to attach hooks to them. I must say that the children really enjoyed the activity and are now looking forward to meeting the fisherman again for a practical session on fishing !!

Thank you to Mr John Bugeja for his excellent presentation. A big word of thanks also go to Ms Romina Bugeja who is always on the lookout for enhanced emerging teaching methodologies. Well done!!

Police Activity

Brian Vassallo | KG1C, KG2A

A great day today for our KG1. The teacher Ms Romina together with her LSE Ms Clare Suleiman invited a policewoman from the Malta Police Force to give a presentation in the classroom. . The police officer Ms Charlene Cilia gently accepted the invitation and gave an interesting, age and stage appropriate presentation about the work of the police and invited the children for a practical activity in the playground. It was a real pleasure for me to be invited to follow and support the activity. The school administration would like to thank all those involved in the organisation of the activity. Particular thanks go to Ms Romina and Ms Clare for the planning, execution and evaluation of the activity. VERY WELL DONE INDEED!
