European School Sport Day

The European School Sport Day is a pan-European initiative with the main goal to promote physical activity on international level with the aim to involve as many children and young people, schools and organisations as possible. The idea was inspired by the Hungarian School Sport Day, an event which has been organised by the Hungarian School Sport Federation (HSSF) for the last 10 years. This is a day dedicated to promote physical activity, and to empower the “belonging to the school” experience for every participant.

The pictures below show the event which took place this morning at Attard Primary. All children from year 1 to year 6 were involved in these activities of sports and fun thanks to the planning and coordination of the PE teacher, Mr M. Scerri, as well as the cooperation of class teachers and LSAs.

Oly Maths

This was an activity organised by the Maths Support Teacher. It involved year five children from three different schools who took part in a quiz and maths related sports activities. Here are some photos of the event:

The Spiral

On Wednesday 18th May, the students in KG 2.4 visited Ħaġar Qim.  Apart from touring the sight the students spent also some time doing other activities such as creating the spiral. The spiral is a design that can be found on megalithic stones around Malta & Gozo, as well as in other ancient architectures around the world. It is believed that this design represents eternity and had significant meaning for the ancient Maltese people.

Here are some photos of the activity:

Exploring the Trilithon

Yesterday, the Kindergarten 2 pupils visited the neolithic temples of Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra. It was a wonderful experience as the pupils undertook several activities there.
