On Monday, 29th of May, the kindergarten teachers, namely Ms. Ruth, Ms. Miriam, and Ms. Samantha, had the opportunity to present and share their collaborative work from the eTwinning project titled ‘Let’s Play Your Part, BE Water Smart!’ They connected virtually with their partner teachers, Ms. Loredana and Ms. Mariana from Romania and they showcased the extensive work they have accomplished together, throughout this scholastic year.
The central theme of this project revolved around water conservation. The teachers wholeheartedly embraced this topic, incorporating it into various STEAM activities. Together with their students, they explored Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics ensuring a holistic learning experience. The teachers’ commitment and dedication to this project truly shone through, and their students benefitted greatly. They managed to nurture a sense of environmental consciousness among our young learners.
During the video conference, the Maltese students enthusiastically performed a song called ‘The Water Cycle.’ They used props and actions to make their performance lively and engaging.

What an eventful day it has been! The year 5 students from Attard Primary School were immersed in their eTwinning project called “eTime Travellers,” focusing on the theme of transportation. Their task was to construct models representing both past and present modes of transport. With extensive research under their belts, the students enthusiastically devised their unique designs and compiled a list of recycled materials required for their creations.
In addition to utilising recycled materials, the students ingeniously incorporated LEGO elements into their project. They programmed and brought to life a moving bus, complete with coded instructions. Furthermore, for their “past” model, they designed a train master equipped with motion detection capabilities. This project truly embodied a cross-curricular approach, as the students engaged in research, explored the realms of digital citizenship, employed their creativity to construct models, collaborated effectively, and even delved into coding their own robots. It was an invaluable experience for all participants!
Two Year 6 students noticed that sometimes water is being wasted. For this reason they prepared a poster to remind everyone to turn off the tap after using it. During assembly they invited all students and educators to team up and be more careful.
This Friday 28th April we will be having book character day at school. We would like the children to come to school dressed up as their favourite book character. If the children have a costume of the character they may wear it, however an accessory or a soft toy will do. Please do not buy any costumes, but use things you have available at home. If possible they should also bring the book where their character appears.
