Posting the Christmas Cards

It's a tradition in my class, for as long as I can remember, to have each child send a card to two relatives, usually grandparents. December is where we learn about letter writing, so it's a fitting lesson. 
Here are my happy pupils posting their cards today.

Owls in the House!

This week we had a story about 'Owl in the House', so as a treat, I surprised the class with this lovely lesson. As soon as they came in from PSD, they saw on each desk, a plate with their ingredients ready. It was breaktime, so it was perfect time to make a healthy snack. Here's what we did. I'm sure many of you are making them again this weekend. Enjoy!

Halloween Activities 2014

What a full week we had! Making the hats in preparation for learning about solid shapes, reading from Winnie the Witch books series, writing about witches, reading Rapunzel, writing 'WANTED' posters for the Evil Witch, learning new words, and closing the week with a healthy version of a Halloween party, making toast and popping corn! All in the name of fun!
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. 
Much love, Miss Claudine.

Winnie the Witch


Winnie the Witch is an award winning book series written by Valerie Thomas and illustrated by Korky Paul, published by Oxford University Press. The books are funny and the illustrations have loads and loads of hidden treats for keen eyes. 
We are super lucky to have this set in our class. 
We've already read three of them. They gave us a couple of hours of fun, giggles, happiness and rainbows. We're also learning how to do spells, changing cats from black to green, making the moon super-big and changing the colours inside the house. 
Let me know in the comment box what you think of these stories.

Jelly and loom band bracelets.

This week we revised capacity (that's litres and millilitres). So we made some jelly in class. Miss Claudine deals with the hot water while the children deal with the cold water and the measures. 

Here is a picture of sweetie chef Ema, with assitant Sven. The only photo I managed to take. 



I wanted to take more photos of the children enjoying their cold treat, but I couldn't as the class was super packed with children from other classes. I wanted to do some more activities, but the crowding and the high temperature made it impossible. 

Well, tomorrow is the last day. 

Children are allowed to wear all the loom bands they want, they're allowed to bring their elastics and they're allowed to make friendship bracelets for each other. 

I hope that the last day will be a fun one!

Tfal Żgħar, Qalb Kbira


Dis-sena, għal Jum l-Omm, xi klassijiet għamlu brazzuletta għall-mama'. Giet Tanja Cilia (li tikteb fis-Sagħtar) biex turihom kif, u l-mama' tiegħi  biex tgħin bix-xogħol tal-wajer. Kien hemm ukoll xi affarjiet li nxtraw minn studenti ta' klassijiet oħra. Bil-qatra l-qatra, meta għoddejt il-flus ta' ġol-kaxxa kien hemm €451. Somma sabiħa li marret għand il-Creche tal-Orsolini ta' tas-Sliema. Post sabiħ ħafna, mimli bl-imħabba li għandhom dawn is-Sorijiet-Omm lejn it-tfal li jrabbu. Jekk xi ħadd minnkom ikun jixtieq imur jgħin, jew jagħti dik ix-xi ħaġa żgħira, kull donazzjoni tiġi milqugħa b'ħafna ferħ. 
Minn qalbi nirringrazzja lit-tfal talli flimkien ferraħna lil ħaddieħor. 
Il-Madre ser tibgħatli rċevuta, u jien ser inġib ritratt tagħha fuq dil-bloggata, kif ukoll nuriha lit-tfal l-iskola. 
Grazzi u prosit!
Jekk qed tħossukom ferħanin b'din l-aħbar, aqbdu l-ferħ tagħkom u agħtu biċċa minnu lil ħaddieħor billi turu qalb tajba u ġenerożita'.

Clocks

This is a very very important lesson. We are learning the quarter past and quarter to. In analog (clock face with hands) as well as digital (clock with numbers). 
Here is a very good teaching clock that children can use.

Studying patterns in nature using a digital microscope

These couple of weeks the kids have been getting me all sorts of natural objects in class. Different leaves, dead insects and other small creatures, shells...here are some captures the children have done (some of them by the big kid)




Meta mlejna l-ħobż fil-klassi

Skużawni m'għandix ritratti ta' kulħadd, kelli jdejja maħmuġin kważi l-ħin kollu u ma stajtx nuża l-kamera l-ħin kollu.

The Times Tables.

I've said this around three times this year. I cannot stress enough the importance of the children knowing the times tables well. Knowing them by heart is good, but they need to remember how to get the result, even if they blank out. 
These are the tables they have in year 3. 
I will print them and will kindly ask you to laminate the sheet for your children, so they can study them every day, until they are with me in year 3.

Fruit Salad

As you know, Pirates travel to far away countries to look for treasure. Here is the treasure we found!

Judy and the Martian

This week we had a comprehension, an extract from Judy and the Martian by Penelope Lively. A Martian crash landed on Earth and had all sorts of bad feelings.  The children had to give their interpretation. Here are some whose work is ready.

Anthea's work. 

Estelle's work

Nevise's work

Ftit Ħaxix fuq il-Kartonċin - Attivita'

Fuq is-Senduq Kuluri Aħdar qrajna storja. Tgħallimna fuq il-collages ta' Pablo Picasso. Xi ħadd qal 'Miss, ejja nagħmlu waħda!'. U hawn huma.

Here is the Times 4 Table song. Please study it.

Something nice to say about everybody.

The children had to pick out a paper from a bag. 
On each paper is someone's name.
They have to write something nice about that 'someone' :)

Times X table.

Illum bdejt it-table tat- X3 mat-tfal. 
Biex jitgħallmuha aktar malajr, sibt dal-vidjo vera utli. Issa anke min ma jiftakarhiex jew min għandu problema li jħawwad numru ma ieħor, jista' juża dal-metodu. Ħafif ħafna.
Importanti li jistudjaw it-tables kuljum.

Hemm ukoll diski li jistgħu jisimgħu biex jidraw aktar malajr. Bħal din KLIKKJA HAWN

Healthy Breakfast Every Morning

Please make sure that your child has breakfast every morning before school. I cannot have children losing concentration because they need to eat at nine o' clock. This is happening with many children, every day. 
Even a slice of fruit, half a sandwich, half a cereal bar...
The internet is full of breakfast ideas. Food is anything but boring. Start the day off with something that wakes you up and gives you energy.

Photos from today. Crunchy, crusty, warm toast at 66 Cafe.

We all know that pirates do not have their grown-ups cooking for them at home, and if they don't have a cook, they need to make their own lunches. 
So here's what my pirates did today. 
Harr!
Miss Claudine.

Today's Photos : Thursday Pirates

Today we put all our work up on the board and we built our ship. If you need any ships built, come to room 66 at Birkirkara Primary and we'll be of good service. We wrote a story about Pirate Jenny, we did some past tense in Maltese. We also had a surprise visit from a friend of Miss Claudine. It was a great day :) Tomorrow do not forget, we'll have more activities, and we're going to make toast. Bring sliced bread, and put some ham, cheese, tuna or whatever you like in your lunch box. See you tomorrow! Miss Claudine.

TOAST

Tomorrow, if you want, get sliced bread, plain or brown.
Get some ham, cheese, tuna, tomatoes...ANYTHING YOU LIKE, in a separate box.
We will toast the bread. You will make your own sandwich, nice and easy!

Some photos from today's pirate activities

I am very sorry, I didn't manage to include everybody in the photos...my hands were dirty most of the time and I couldn't handle the camera when I really wanted to!
I promise to take more photos tomorrow :) Today we finished our treasure maps, we wrote instructions on how to find the treasure, we made a wanted poster, we painted our ship, we revised the doubles (and the hard ones, and learnt how grown ups do doubles too), we painted a very large map! That's a lot of work for my pirates, don't you think? HARR! Miss Claudine

Pirate Week : IMPORTANT NOTICE (bil-Malti)

Fiż-żmien meta kienu mal-istudenta, jien ħejjejt bosta attivitajiet biex Jannar nieħdu gost nitgħallmu bit-tema tal-pirati. Naf li t-tfal jieħdu ħafna gost. 
Qed insibha diffiċli pero' nagħmel lezzjonijiet li fihom ammont ta' logħob u gost, minflok joqgħodu jiktbu il-ħin kollu, hemm xi tfal li mhux qed iġibu ruħhom sew. Ħafna ħsejjes bil-ħalq waqt li nkun qed nispjega, logħob bl-idejn waqt il-lezzjonijiet, fil-kuritur ma jimxux kif għallimthom jien, ħafna ċċassar waqt il-ħin tal-konċentrazzjoni. L-agħar ħaġa hi li meta xi ħadd jagħmel xi ħaġa ħażina, jikkupjawh erba oħra, minflok li jsikktuh. 
Naf li qatgħu minn miegħi, u issa qisni qed nerġa' nibda mill-bidu. Kien hemm sitt ġimgħat qabel il-Milied, il-vaganzi tal-Milied, għamilt ġimgħa bil-bronkite d-dar...
Għaldaqstant jekk taraw xi nota fid-djarju tal-iskola tieħdux qatgħa. Naf li minn għandkom dejjem kelli kooperazzjoni u li intom tafu li jien nixtieq li t-tfal kollha imorru tajjeb u jkunu ferħanin fil-klassi.

Dawn huma xi affarjiet li ser nagħmlu fit-tema tal-Pirati

a) Inpinġu Mappa u struzzjonijiet
b) Djarju ta' Pirata
ċ) Lezzjonijiet tal-Matematika fuq l-istess tema
d) Smoothies tal-frott eżotiku
e) Inpinġu vapur kbir tal-Pirati (xtrajtulhom apposta)
f) Attivitajiet bl-Ingliż fuq il-Pirati
ġ) Nagħmlu l-ħobż tagħna stess
g) Nitgħallmu fuq annimali perikolużi u pajjiżi fejn kienu jivjaġġaw il-pirati
għ) Films qosra, poeżiji u kant tal-Pirati
ħ) Nilbsu tal-Pirati fil-klassi  (għandi fil-kaxex tiegħi)
fost oħrajn

Dan kollu mhux ser ikun possibli jekk ma jobdux, kemm fl-imġiba kif ukoll fl-istudju. 

Waħda mill-affarjiet li tlabthom huwa li jistudjaw id-doubles. Forsi fi klassi sħiħa ta 21 hemm forsi ħamsa li jafuhom sew. Iridu jistudjawhom kuljum sakemm ikunu jafuhom sew. Naf li mhux kulħadd kapaċi l-istess, lanqas jien ma jien kapaċi daqs ħaddieħor, imma għallanqas kulħadd irid juri li qed jipprova u li qed jistudja. Naqra kuljum, kulħadd jimxi 'l quddiem. 
Qed nikteb hawn forsi hemm x'uħud minnkom il-ġenituri li ma tarawx id-djarju. Nitlobkom meta tistgħu issaqsuhom id-doubles. Minn dan it-term ser nibda' nagħti t-testijiet. Ninsab ċerta li ser immorru sew, kull bidu huwa naqra iebes, u Jannar qisu bidu ieħor!

Grazzi ħafna, 

Miss Claudine
