Enjoying learning about other countries
Did you know that food can be grouped depending on its colour? And that same colours share many characteristics and properties? So this is what primary students at Martinet School have discovered with this activity. Not only they have group food into different colours but have made a research to see what is behind the common sentence: “This is healthy.. eat it”. What means to be healthy? What properties benefit our body? Now we have the right answers!!
During the Erasmus week we had the pleasure to welcome Jordi Fernandez from the Pediatric Team in the Health Department. He showed teachers and families a very successful project that he has carried out in different schools and we may introduce from next year at Martinet School: “INFADIMED: Infància i Dieta Mediterrània” (INFADIMED: childhood and Mediterranean Diet”. The aim of this project is to show students the importance of healthy eating through stories and heroes characters. The target is to set students from 3-years-old in the centre of actions, trying them to be aware what they should eat if they want to be like their heroes. If students learn and choose what they want to eat, they can show their parents at home too!
An event in celebration of the end of Erasmus H.A.P.P.E.N.S took place in the 11th Primary School of Haidary on Wednesday 31st of May 2017.
During those two years all students, teachers and parents of our school and the wider community focused on well – being through healthier eating habits, an active life style and a work-life balance.
Students of all grades presented through dancing, singing, painting, reading and playing scenes of their everyday life showing the numerous benefits they have gained from this project.
The responsibility for coordinating the event had the Erasmus+ happens team with the help of many teachers of the school.
Local authorities, the mayor, teachers and head teachers from other schools, parents and families were present and enjoyed the ceremony.
In the end everybody left with a smiling face thinking how simple things can make our life healthier and happier.
The students of the 5th and 6th grade of the 11th Primary school of Haidari presented their digital work (ppt) on the herbs of our country and their research on super foods to the students, teachers and parents of our school.
The students of the 3rd and 4rth grade presented also their paper team work on the wondeful herbs, their research and their posters to teachers and parents of our school.
After a short break for a super food snak and a cup of greek mountain tea, the erasmus+HAPPENS team prepared a moisturising body cream to offer to the parents and teachers of our school using natural materials: Beeswax, almond oil, chamomile decoction and lavender essential oil. Thank you Galway for this great recipe!!!
It was a very interesting seminar to all of us!
Students of the 3rd and 4rth grade of the 11th Primary Schoolof Haidari worked in teams and completed their research on Greek Herbs. They organized their work on the template they had been given and they also created some really beautiful posters to present their team work to the other students of our school, to the teachers and the parents too.
Students of the 5th and 6th grade of our school worked in teams on both herbs and superfood and created their own ppt presentations to show their research to the other students, to their parents and to the teachers of the school.
Well done to all!!!
