The final product of our project is a booklet. It’s the best way to share all the experiences done in our four cities. You can use it as an example to develop similar projects or activities in your schools or towns. We hope it like you and be useful!

Healthy ads

The European Union points out that the habits among European children have changed during the last years. TV, the Internet, computer games and smartphones compete with more physical activities and it has lead to more sedentary activities and more limited social life. The spontaneous outdoor games are more and more replaced by the digital world. Our project focuses on our students’ health and to help them finding healthy habits. School today has an important and an increasing part of getting all children and young people to be physically active. In Sweden the government has proposed that all young people should be using their body by walks, biking, running or playing at least an hour a day. The students have created short ads to encourage each other to move and use your body and to have healthy habits. In our corridors at Lugnviksskolan the students have put short ads, so everybody gets reminded that this is so important.

–      Let your life run!                    –      You can do this!

–      Be a good player!                   –      It’s good to sport!

–      Run to your dreams!

Last transnational meeting in Dénia

This week, in Pou de la Muntanya school, in Dénia, the last of the transnational coordination meetings of the Erasmus + KA2 #TastingSchools project has been made. In it, teachers from Kaland Skole from Bergen (Norway), Lugnviksskolan from Östersund (Sweden) and Giacomo Ferrari Institute from Parma (Italy) participated.

After two years of shared work, it’s time to finish this interesting project that has been co-financed by the Erasmus + program of the European Union. During this time, we have developed four thematic blocks: Let’s visit, Let’s cook, Let’s move and Art & Cooking, each with several sections: research, visits to the environment and use of new technologies.

During the meeting, we evaluated the mobility of students and teachers, held last week in Dénia, and we have been working with the booklet that will collect examples of everything we have worked during these months. Also, we worked and discussed about the final report that must be drawn up to send to the Erasmus + National Agency.

The cultural program of the week has included the approach to our culinary culture and the singularities of Dénia as a Creative City of Gastronomy declared by UNESCO.

Common exhibition

One of the activities carried out throughout the project, and to establish bond between the participating cities, has been the exchange of photos related to the different cities. In each city, a period for taking photographs about representative sites, made by students, was opened. A first exhibition was held in each centre. Among all the photographs taken, each city has chosen the 10 most representative ones. Later, we carried out an exchange of the same photos in order to  exhibit them again, this time the 10 photographs chosen by each city. This exchange was carried out on the mobilities. In this way, students have been able to enjoy them, get to know the project partners better and get closer to other cultures.

Planting seeds

Our primary students created a garden-patch of their own! It is a short growing season in the northern part of Sweden. Therefore, you must sow seeds indoors in small pots until the weather gets warmer and you can plant your crops outdoors in a garden-patch. In groups of four they decided what vegetables, herbs and flowers they wanted to grow. Before sowing they learnt about the different species and the specific growing conditions. Time for sowing! The students filled pots and egg cartoons with soil to put their seeds in. And after that they waited and waited and waited… until one day when the first little green leaf appeared. An important part of the garden-patch project is to document the procedure in a diary. The work combined a lot of subjects; biology, maths and Swedish.

It was an important and happy day when the students took their crops and got outdoors to plant them.  Returning after summer holidays they were welcomed by a green and lush garden!

Östersund stay report

Östersund stay at Lugnvisksskolan school is framed in the series of transnational meetings scheduled in the framework of Tasting Schools Project, coordinated by Pou de la Muntanya School. After the meeting in Dénia last October, team members from IC Ferrari (Parma), Kaland Skole (Bergen) and Dénia met in Lugnviksskolan (Östersund) in order to perform four actions related to the project.

First, each present member introduced dynamics undertaken by each school so far. Then, they proposed new activities and strategies. Subsequently, they moved to assess the evolution of the program, in order to detect possible shortcomings and suggest possibilities for implementation of the quality of the work in the short and medium term. Finally, a session was devoted to organizing programs of mobility between teachers and students for the coming months.

The meeting also allowed knowing first-hand the functioning and organization of the host school, including classes with students of different levels.

They formed part of the welcome team and participated actively in the development of our stay. Along with them, the participants in the meeting had the opportunity to check the impact of the Erasmus project in different areas of the building, dedicated to highlight it, as the mobile library or playgrounds. In this sense, even the canteen gained prominence, since we were able to observe there the implementation of healthy habits, exchange views and talk with students, chefs and teachers.

THE EXPECTED ACADEMIC OUTPUTS

In this context, the expected outputs are the following: projecting visits with students to prestigious restaurants; attending Chefs conferences; organizing fishing, grilling and “tasting the fish” activities; creating haikus; working nutritional and healthy habits; visiting museums of the city and international cooking schools; scheduling a Tasting Lab and a Science Project aimed to the study of vegetables, fruits and berries; doing «the seeds project»; writing a collaborative tale; and vegetable markets; travelling Europe in two classrooms; engaging families in kitchen sessions, and students in Skype exchanges, and implementing school gardens and the practice of traditional and local games.

As can be seen from this report, all of these objectives will undoubtedly benefit this interdisciplinary project, as this series of meetings, ultimately, made it possible to communicate, discuss and resolve key issues for optimal monitoring of Tasting Schools.
