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.

Boys and girls at three-years-old class in Escola Martinet played with their “emocionómetre”. This activity allowed them to measure their feelings. Before the activity they all explained how they were feeling at that momento an dwhy. Once having done that they measure the class emotions.
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!
At Martinet School even the Little ones are participating and learning a lot about this Project. In the potos below you can see how children in 3-years-old class enjoy having a healthy snack and selecting the fruit they have brought to school. Who said that because they are little they don’t have their say!
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.
At Martinet school we have been playing the Greek game The seven Stones. At first we thought students thought it was an easy game, just a physical activity, but after a while they discovered that as well as a physical activity mentality, strategy and team work was also esential to win. All clases that have tried it loved it and want to repeat!
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.

SHORT STORY ABOUT LIFE OF BEES
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!
