Walking in nature

Throughout the Erasmus Project our students were asked to think about activities that are enjoyable and relaxing for them. Among other ,activities in nature seemed quite essential to our children ‘s well-being.

So, we thought that some mild exercise in a beautiful and safe location in the company of our parents and teachers would have multiple benefits. On one hand ,being active and on the other hand more contact with our family and nature.

We have already organised three monthly walks with fifth and sixth grade students and their parents. We aim in engaging all classes for the rest of the year and the following.
Here are some photos of our walks.

“Atrapa-pors” or “Fear Catcher”

At Martient School 5 and 6 years old clases have been talking about their fears ad how do they feel when they have them. Children and teachers had a great talk that helped them all to understand their fear and try to combat them. For that reason, to get rid of them, they created a great machine… the “Fear Catcher”. To make this machine to work you only need to write down on a paper that your fear is and then place the paper in the machine. Once you have done that you your fears disappear!!! Just give it a try!

Preparing a Healthy Week Menu at Escola Martinet

Students at Escola Martinet have been studying the properties from each food and after that they have prepare a balanced and healthy week menú. Yhey had previous experience in grouping healthy and not healthy food, and even preparing a healthy meal… but doing the same for a whole week was a little bit more complicated. in the photos below you can see 5 – 7 years old students preapring their week menu. All school will be participating in this activity after Easter.

Favourite fruit at ZSG nr 2 in Radomsko , Poland

Our students consume fruit very eagerly for 3 years now, as we belong to “The Health Promoting Schools”. In November 2015 we appointed “The Fruit Police”, which checked the popularity of fruit in our school. Every Wednesday we recorded, what kind of fruit the students brought. On 20th January we counted the most popular fruit which were brought by our students to school since 17th November. Results are presented in the chart below. Wednesday is now Fruit Day in Zespol Szkolno-Gimnazjalny no 2.

The staff and children of Claddagh NS have taken on a new challenge, to run 1km every day! In the news, we heard about a school in Scotland where the children run a mile a day and have noticed that the health and fitness of everyone in the school improved, so we decided to try it out for ourselves. We measured out a route in our school playground – if we run four laps of this route (marked by a yellow painted line) it amounts to over 1000m.

The children in 3rd class designed posters to advertise the Daily K and to encourage everyone to take part. We aim to get every class to jog or run the route once a day as a break between lessons or when they need some fresh air. We have only been doing it for two weeks so far, we were pretty tired at the start but already we are getting fitter. The important thing is we are having fun getting some exercise together! Wish us luck!

Claddagh School Fourth Class Builds a Weekly Menu


Build a Daily Menu

Build a Weekly Menu

By Mr. Leonard’s 4th Class

Today is Thursday, March 3rd, 2016. Mr. Leonard was not at school today so Ms. Asgard took over.

We built our very own weekly menus in small groups of five. Each child got a plate labelled: Morning, morning snack, Lunch, 2nd Snack and Dinner. There were a lot of foods to choose from. Ms. Asgard put on some silly music and the children in the group had to pick their food items for their meal while the music was playing. When the music stopped, the children had to stop choosing food items.
Each group was given a day’s menu to plan. We had to make sure we didn’t choose too many sugary foods on the menu or choose the same foods too many times in a row. Also we had to make sure we didn’t choose too much food for each meal or snack.
Our Principal, Mr. Gallagher, came down to have a look while we were doing this activity. He said it’s ok to have donuts sometimes because they are really nice.
Mr. Geraghty came to visit as well. He is the teacher in charge of Physical Education at our school. He is super healthy and fit!
After each day group chose their foods, the other children graded the menu. The children stuck the foods onto the plates with Blu-Tak. Ms. Asgard doesn’t understand why children are so fascinated with Blu-Tak but they are!
After that, Ms. Asgard took some photos of the children and their plates. You can see the pictures of us right here!
We had so much fun! We will all think more about choosing healthier foods to eat. We also figured out that if you’re having a special day like a birthday or some other celebration, it’s ok to eat some unhealthy foods but not to do that too often!
Since we were the first class in the school to do this activity with Ms. Asgard, she learned a lot, too. She knows she has to make more beverages (drinks) for the children to choose from and also make some of the foods smaller!
We missed Mr. Leonard today and we know that he would have loved being here!
