Dinja Waħda Activity
Fiks in trouble
St.Theresa College St.Venera Primary School
The aim of the activity is to strengthen the children’s innate bond with nature through storytelling with a moral.
After hearing the adventurous story of a butterfly named Fiks who was sent on a mission, the children created a frieze that followed Fiks in his adventures and the various characters he met. The activity was spread over a number of days adding features to the frieze gradually every time the story was repeated.
The children started the activity by colouring the different characters found in the story such as butterflies, mice, robins, a spider, a lizard and a bad boy. Videos were shown on the Interactive White Board which helped the children to learn about the lives of these characters. The children started the frieze by creating the forest. They made hand prints to form the leaves of the trees and later they painted the trunks and sponge printed the soil.
The next day, the children continued the frieze by pasting the mouse and his friends, the pine cone and the seed that hit Fiks. They pasted also some foil to form the rain.
On another day, the 3 year olds pasted a spider and its web, pasted Fiks who was trapped, a robin who saved the butterfly and another robin who wanted his tree for himself. The children continued the activity by forming and pasting real flowers and leaves. They pasted also the butterfly Fiks and the lizard. Next they glued a wall and placed Fiks on it. Later they pasted the bad boy and the other flowers.
While making the frieze, the children learnt a song about the adventures of Fiks and were recorded. The recording of the song can be heard here: Fiks
Our school promotes a healthy lifestyle.
This we do by encouraging our pupils to eat healthy food and keep themselves fit.
In addition to weekly PE lessons, we organise special outings through which our pupils can practice sport disciplines which they cannot practice at school. The outing which our year 4 pupils had at GymStars was one of them. Many thanks to our dedicated PE teacher, Mr. Philip Cauchi, for organising such an event.
First week of school
The project People Planet Profit , has come to an end, but for sure it has been a memorable experience for the pupils and teachers, from St Venera Primary, St Theresa College who have enjoyed working together with students and teachers, from Holland, Germany, and Slovakia on this.
The aim of this project was to encourage the children to open up to others, become better friends even with children from other countries. The children enjoyed working together during projects locally and internationally. There were 4 trips in all with pupils involved, the first was to Boxmeer Holland where 8 of our pupils together with their teachers Ms Simone Calaio and Mr Bernardo Riolo learnt about waste processing and the advantages of reducing , re-using and recycling. The second mobility was to Lingen Germany, where the teachers Mr Emanuel Busutil and Project Co-ordinator Veronique Sultana took 6 children to Lingen Germany. It was a great experience, making friends, and experiencing a new country for the first time for some of the pupils.Here they learnt all about compost making. The third trip was to Poprad Slovakia where 4 pupils were accompanied by Ms Miriam Spiteri Delia and Ms Sandra Bajada. Here they learnt about endangered animals around the world. Finally the project came to an end once again in Boxmeer, where the children together with their teachers Mr Malcolm Aqilina and Ms Graziella Spiteri learnt all about alternative energy in the land of windmills.
There were also two visits by all participating countries to Malta where the whole school, especially the older classes had a chance, to work together, play together, and learn together, during various activities organised by our school, including a talent show, an international night, visits to Imdina, Valletta and the beautiful St John’s Co-Cathedral, and a whole day in Gozo to see the historical temples of Ggantija and the fortifications of Cittadella. While in Malta we worked on Fair trade with the Help of Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust, and Alternative energy by visiting the Xrobb l-Ghagin Nature Park and Sustainable Centre.
All the pupils and teachers involved in the project feel satisfied and lucky of being part of such a great project. Every one had loads of fun,and learned a lot about how to make our planet more sustainable while creating memories that none of us will never forget. A big thanks to EUPA, the head of school Ms Rita Azzopardi, the project co-ordinators Bernardo Riolo and Veronique Sultana as well as all teachers and staff that made this experience possible.
