THANKSGIVING DAY 2018



                 Thanksgiving in the United States is always celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. In Canada Thanksgiving is celebrated the second Monday in October. Families prepare meal similar to the meal prepared by the Pilgrims and Wampanoag 400 years ago. It is time for counting the blessings we have received during the year and for spending time with family and friends.

SAINT PATRICK´S DAY



Saint Patrick is the patron of Ireland. Although St. Patrick´s day falls on 17 March which is the anniversary of his death in the fifth century, our school has celebrated it on Friday, the 16th.
Children and teachers got dressed in green, sang traditional Irish songs, painted rainbows, made necklaces, shamrocks and leprechaun masks. We spent a lovely time and had lots of fun!

HEALTHY BREAKFAST
  Last week our 1st and 2nd Graders had a  Healthy Breakfast in the English Classroom.
 Children  practiced  vocabulary and expressions related to breakfast time, and they 
 also learnt about British and American traditional breakfasts.

     According to the Health Program we are developing at school from the beginning of the 
academic year, we want to encourage our children to have a healthy and balanced 
breakfast because it's commonly known as the most important meal of the day!

      Any breakfast is better than no breakfast, but try not to have cookies or pastries all 
the time. They're high in calories, sugar and fat. They also don't contain the nutrients.
a kid really needs. And if you have a doughnut for breakfast, you won't feel full for long.
Just like with other meals, try to eat a variety of foods, including:
·      fruit
·      vegetables
·      grains ( make at least half your grains whole grains)
·      protein (ham, eggs, dry beans, nuts, and seeds)
·       dairy products (low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese, and yogurt)

    Some kids skip breakfast because they sleep too late or because they think it's a way to
 stay thin. But skipping breakfast doesn't help people maintain a healthy weight. In fact,
 someone who skips breakfast tends to eat more calories throughout the day.
     Just in case you need more evidence that eating breakfast is the way to go, kids who don't eat
 breakfast are less able to learn at school, get less iron (an important nutrient) in their diets, and 
are more likely to have a higher body mass index (BMI) which is a sign they may be overweight.
      On the other hand, kids who eat breakfast do better in school, are more likely to participate
 in physical activities, and tend to eat healthier overall.
      So tomorrow morning, don't run out the door on an empty stomach. 

      Fuel up with a HEALTHY BREAKFAST!   Here are some fantastic photographs of the activity!!!!
