SCIENCE: Living Things
As part of our project on Living Things we are growing potatoes, tomatoes, beans and other seeds. We are watching them grow roots and shoots and developing into plants.
What a fine way to finish an extremely hectic day ! This typical Lamb and Chicken Couscous, freshly cooked by the expert hands of Ms Souad, Ms Asmaa Ms Nuzha and Ms Samira was served to all the staff to savour Coupled with this delicacy we also had the opportunity to taste some tuna bread meticulously prepared by Ms Jessica and Mr Alfred. The bread was also distributed to all our wonderful students. And as the saying goes…. the proof of the pudding is in the eating ! And I assure you all was gobbled up ! A BIG THANK YOU AND WELL DONE TO ALL!
Assalamu Aleikum dear parents!
Today in KG1A, we did a sensory activity for the little ones as an invitation for the topic “Autumn”. Different coloured materials were used to showcase the beautiful colours that are around us during Autumn.
Children got to use all their 5 senses through the feeling of different textures (rice, lentils), different sounds, different taste (cereal) etc.
They spent a good hour happily playing whilst also learning some attributes each vegetable had.
Since we received such great feedback from the little ones, we will be focusing on Autumn for the upcoming few weeks to cater to the children’s interests Inshallah.
Today Mariam Albatool School celebrated Pink October. This is an initiative aimed to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. The principal goals include generating awareness, raising funds, and encouraging men and women to participate. In Malta, activities are held over 30 days, where there is a whole host of exciting fundraising activities that anyone can take part in, and these culminate in the famous fun run!
Assalamu Aleikum and welcome to KG1A!
I believe that books are a great tool which helps young minds let their imagination run wild whilst also helping them target all of their areas of development. From various different books, one can abstract different themes which all connect to one book.
Live Science in the classroom
One of the Learning Outcomes for the children of Year 1 is to learn about the world around them. This includes the different kinds of animals with which we share the world. One creature we researched and learnt about is the frog and its life cycle. We had LIVE tadpoles in class so that we could get a closer look. The children were fascinated by the tadpoles and they also grasped the idea that a frog goes through many changes from when it is an egg until it becomes an adult frog. This understanding can be seen by a task the children had to complete. The cutting task was another opportunity for the children to strengthen their finger muscles so as to have a more controlled pencil grip and better handwriting. The tadpoles were returned to their pond right after school .
