Year 3D also took part in the eTwinning spring competition. Both classes are active participants in the eTwinning online platform.

eTwinning is an international online platform where educators and their students come together by sharing learning online through eTwinning interactive website. eTwinning is also part of Erasmus+ where ongoing educational opportunities for educators and their learners are always available.

The school administration would like to thank Ms Doris Schembri and Ms Romina Bugeja for their excellent job in providing the children with such excellent opportunities. #etwinningmalta

Year 3D are participating in an eTwinning project entitled ReLiSh (Read, Listen, Share) where various countries are taking part during book week.  In this instance we read a story in Maltese called ‘Ninu, il-Pustier’ by Doris Schembri and listened to the French story ‘Roule Galette’.  Mr Kenneth Busuttil and Mr Kamel both interacted with the enthusiastic students during the session.

Future Classrooms

Children in Year 3 participated in an activity named “Future Classrooms” in which they themselves had to use the tablet, together with Lego cubes to make a moving robot. After doing so, the children used the tablet to code the robot. Each group worked on a different project and shared their work with their others. They enjoyed it a lot.

The school administration would like to thank Ms Jessica Muscat and Ms Doris Schembri for their dedication and enthusiasm towards motivating the students to complete their project. A big WELL DONE !

Safety at Home

Brian Vassallo | News, Y3

Both Year 3 classes had a Maltese reading book about firefighters and safety. They really liked the book and we, educators thought about organizing an outing to the fire station in Paola in which the pupils could see what the work of a firefighter actually involves. Everyone enjoyed the outing and the firefighters themselves asked us to visit our school for a follow-up activity in which they themselves talked about safety at home. It was a very fruitful experience for the pupils.

The school administration would like to thank Ms Jessica Muscat and Ms Doris Schembri for their dedication towards the holistic development of all pupils under their care. THANK YOU !
