La Castanyada (Traditional Catalan Festival)

ready to have the chestnuts and the "panellets"

The 31st of October is the day of the dead people, and we celebrates Castanyada festival. Is a very old holiday and it's still alive despite the time. At school we celebrate it making 'panellets' (almond and sugar Catalan pastry) and we bake and eat chestnuts beacuse is a very ancient tradition.


The students of 6th grade wear a Castanyer/a custom (people who bake and sell chestnuts at street) and bring the chestnuts to the rest of students. And we prepare a Terror House, beacuse these days is usual to tell terrific legends and stories.

Sofia and Soumia as 'Castanyeres'

"Per Tots Sants castanyes i cargols amb banyes"

This Catalan proverb reminds us that Autumn is one of the most exciting seasons for traditional food. Many fruits (pomegranate, quince, grapes, chestnuts..) are ready to be eaten, others (olives) to be picked and with the Fall rainings arrive also the desired mushrooms and snails. To complete the menu arrive also some traditional pastries (panellets) and confitures (codonyat made with quince).

Our younger students prepared an exposition on Aurtumn fruits, and the elder ones learned how valuable are on the nutritional side.

This week is specially dedicated to the fact of tasting different kinds of food in France.

There are special events in restaurants, in school restaurants but also in classrooms.

In our school, we've done several things during this special week.

Each pupil went home with some soup for dinner.

Thursday : We've had an healthy breakfast at school with all our pupils

Friday : We will play with tastes.

Questionnaries - 7th October 08

We've prepared questionnaries for our families.

We've asked them what they used to cook at home, for usual meals or for special events.

We will use the results of this questionnary to choose our Comenius menus for the cooking book.

2nd october 08 - healthy food

As we are going to work a lot about food this year for this project, we've asked to a specialist to come.

She explained to our pupils how to sort food into 7 families and to have healthy menus.

The following days our pupils tried to remember her explanations and to create posters about food categories.

We've tried to create healthy menus in our classrooms.

1st April

On 1st April, in France, it’s usual to prepare hoaxes for friends and families.
Among other practical jokes, our favourite is “poisson d’Avril” (literally "April's fish"), attempting to attach a paper fish to the victim's back without being noticed.

It’s a great pleasure for our pupils to manage to attach a paper fish to a teacher’s back !
