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!!
At Escola Martinet students have been investigating the positive properties herbs have. First we made a search to find information about those we hadn’t heard before. Later we also made some experiments and planted some herbs. We learned a lot with this activities!!
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!
During the Erasmus week at Martinet school we prepared an exhibition to show most of the exchanged activities and work we have done with other partners. We also prepared some evaluation stars where students, teachers and families could write what they liked most and have learnt with the Erasmus Project at our school. There are very interesting comments!!
Art therapy activities have been one of the most successful tasks during all the project. We had the opportunity to combine creativity with Mental Health and relaxation and hand activities all throughout the age-groups. Here you can see some examples.
