PARMA MAY 7th-13th_ MOBILITY FOR STUDENTS

A FANTASTIC WEEK JUST ENDED!

Thanks to the collaboration of 18 families we hosted in our school, the Istituto Comprensivo G.Ferrari, many young students coming from three different European schools: Denia (Spain), Bergen (Norwey) and Östersund (Sweden).

The activities were built on the project: ERASMUS+ “DECONSTRUCTING EDUCATION: CREATIVE AND INCLUSIVE SCHOOLS IN GASTRONOMIC CITIES” financed by the European Community.

This was the first (out of four) students mobility and it tested the methods of work that will characterize the next mobilities.

The students, arrived in group of six with two teachers each, have attended the school lessons, visited our city and enjoyed the traditional and typical places of food production of our province.

In particular, the students visited the historical places of our city (the Cathedral, the Battistero, the Farnese Theatre, the Regio Theatre and the National Gallery), Torrechiara castle, the Ham museum of Langhirano and a cheese factory that produces Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

 In our schools, they attended some lessons and they also took part in some didactical laboratories based on the topic of the project, among these: the laboratory of cooking in the Esprit Centre, with the collaboration of the chef Francesca Montagna and the laboratory on the importance of water in our diet proposed by Maestri del Gusto. 

During the mobility week, the foreign students shared with our Italian students some important activities promoted by our schools such as the performance “Josef” made by the school choir, the sustainable snack, the performance “Odyssey” and the activities of the sportive group of the school Anna Frank.

The mobility ended with a special dinner in which the hosting families with the Italian and foreign students and teachers had a great time together and they strengthened their friendship started with the project.

The activities were organized and lead by a group of teachers of the schools and they involved colleagues and students from different grade of schools during the different steps of this hard and ambitious project. Thanks in particular to our families for their collaboration and sense of hospitality.

This week will be an unforgettable memory in the history of our schools, as also the smiles and the friendships of every students that we met!

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.

Day of skiing in Duved

Day of skiing in Duved March 28, 2017

Tuesday, March 28, we had a field day in Duved, it was downhill which was on the program.

It was really changing weather from snow storm and sunshine, when the sun arrived it was nice.

It was full speed on the slopes all day.

Lunch consisted of grilled burgers.

After 5 hours of skiing there were many tired legs that sat on the bus for the journey home to Lugnvik.

Round of Skypes: Parma – Dénia

These days, Dénia and Parma students have begun to communicate by Skype videoconferences.  The aim of the activity is known among the parterns.

Pou de la Muntanya School students, in Dénia, could talk with the Anna Frank School students, the Giacomo Ferrari Institute and the Hospital Scholar Unit in Parma.


It was a very enriching experience and a good opportunity to practice English.


It was a fun experience, we will continue with the talks and hope to speak to students from other countries as well.

On the other hand,  five years old students enjoyed a conversation with five years old students in Parma.

Here’s a part of the conversation:
Our students greeted with typical Italian “Bongiorno”
Then Parma students were presented one by one and everyone told us what they liked most, and we danced with a song:
We sang a song in English that Teacher Joan had taught.

And finally we said goodbye until next time.

We want to repeat it.

Kick off #Tastingschools

Kick off #Tastingschools


Wednesday 11th January, there was a great activity at school when the project #Tastingschools kicked off.

Wednesday 11th January, Teachers prepared a large fruit and vegetable market in the main hall, where the students got a good presentation of all 50 kinds of vegetables. It was also an opportunity to smell, taste a bit and take away all the vegetables.

The students from 7th grade had “Taste Workshop” in the kitchen. They presented dishes based on vegetables. Pupils and adults got to taste ratatouille, lime marinated cucumber, beetroot, with blueberries and a green smoothie. Not all students thought everything was nice as well, but all the students tasted everything. The green smoothie was a clear favourite.

On the red room, the project was presented to the students. Participating cities were presented and objectives of the project were reviewed. Engaged pupils asked many good questions.

It was a great day for everyone at school.
