2) English: Green book exercises (please consult the diary)
3) Maths subtraction sums on Maths copybook 4.
Next week we shall start divisions, so it will be good if children revise the multiplication tables over the weekend.
Thanks, and have a nice weekend.
I told the children that next Tuesday we shall be having a football-themed day. They are to come in their P.E kits or their football gears. No shinguards please. IF it's cold, they can wear a poloneck under the football kit or wear a tracksuit over it. I also asked them to look for newspaper cuttings regarding football, please look in the Sunday papers as there will be quite a lot of football coverage.
We shall write about this book, talk about favourite players, talk about training, the roles of managers and coaches, famous teams etc...I will also show them video clips of famous players doing their magic on the football pitch, as well as football funny moments. I will post these movies here after the lesson, so you can talk about the lesson with your children.

Our first stop was just outside Valletta, to the public library. We were shown round the different sections. We learnt two new words 'reference' and 'Melitensia'.
Here are two great boys sharing a Narnia book.
Here we are being shown the reference section. Hush!! Be quiet! There are people studying....
Run up the hill to Hastings Gardens in Valletta...for a little bit of lunch under the shade. Bliss.
Off to the Traditional Arts and Crafts museum nearby to meet some people from another era.
Back to hastings gardens for some fun. Look at all those happy faces!
Walking back on the bridge above City Gate, some eagle eyes spotted our town from afar....'Look Miss! It's the hospital!'
Passed through St.James'Cavalier, and we saw an modern sculpture exhibition about Urbanisation. Very interesting and thought provoking.
Whoa! Barrakka Gardens. Packed with tourists and excited school children. This week we touched the war subject, so what a better view to end our journey...Now we can see where the Great Siege happend and where the crippled SS Ohio entered...Children were very excited to see something they watched on a very old movie.
There you have it...the most beautiful.
Next week we'll be doing some work connected with this outing. So stay tuned.
I did not give any homework, poor children were too tired to take any more homework.
(We'll make up for it soon enough....)

Għandhom ix-xogħol tad-dar fuq il-Malti lingwa grammatika.
There are only a couple of pupils who aren't fluent in these sums, we still have another couple of days doing them. Hopefully by Friday there won't be any problems with anybody.
Next week we are doing division sums. Would be good if you revised the multiplication tables at home.

Rajna dan il-film qasir fuq din l-istorja. Dan hu bl-ingliż, iżda jgħin lit-tfal jifhmu l-istorja aktar.
Għad-dar iridu jikbtu paragrafu fuq il-Malti kitba.
'Immaġina li int kont dixxiplu fuq id-dgħajsa ma' Ġesu'. Irrakkonta l-istorja u għid x'ħassejt'.
