A storytelling session was also held by Merlin Library as part of world book day. Students had the chance to meet woth the character Bugi and do other activities related with the book Bugi written by Tricia Fenech Fabri and published by Merlin Publishers.
As part of world book day, all students of first grade were asked to get their favourite book to school. All students were excited to share their favourite books with their friends. These were later discussed in class and were also part of the outside displays that were created especially for this day.
Later, bookmarks were also created as a celebration of world book day.
Ms. Sylvana’s class kg2 enjoyed a hands on experience in the kindergarten yard sowing some seasonal seeds.Two of the seeds were edible and one was not.Since the current theme in class is spring, pupils could understand more the sequence to follow to saw seeds and it was easier too for a better interaction during the activity. It was a sensory experience since they had to ,handle garden tools,dig in the soil ,feel, notice colour and size in seeds and water the seeds It was emotional too,because kids were really engaged in the activity and enjoyed themselves.
A record chart was set too,so that pupils can record the growing progress and watering times.
During this month an other hands on activity is being experienced in class daily. a garden corner is set for those pupils who wish to be creative and experiment with different materials : soil,rocks.garden tools, artificial flowers for flower arrangements,water etc. They also have their own plant in class to take care and water.
Another two interesting crafts are planned ,one with cress seed and an other with potato. This is done with an objective, so that pupils can understand that, we can use plants and have fun in different ways. This helps to built their creativity and instill in them curiosity to experiment in different ways.
During this month pupils will also have an extended activity regarding gardening,watering and helping in cleaning the surrounded environment,from grass and other trash. They engaged themselves and are very eager to see the final product. This helps a lot to understand that spring bring changes in nature.
