MOOve to the GrOOve!!!

3rd and 4th Class have had a fantastic few weeks doing our Moo Crew project!

Firstly we learned all about dairy, healthy diet and being active, and why these things are so important for us all. We did healthy cookery classes and went for a walk in Derrycassan Woods. We also do ‘DEAD’ in class, which means ‘Drop Everything and Dance’.

We then set about making posters to put up around the town to educate our community.

We worked in groups to create an educational display- this explained the processes milk, yogurt and cheese go through, from farm to fridge. It also explained about being active. One of the groups created an interactive food pyramid.

We brought these to Supervalu, where we set up a sampling table! We taught the customers about what we had learned using our displays and then offered them samples of milk and cheese to help them on their way with their dairy servings that day!! We made an information leaflet which we also gave them to help them keep on track with a healthy lifestyle! We sent home the leaflet to each family too when we went round to talk about our project with all the classes, so we hope you all have it stuck on your fridge as a reminder!!

We visited the local playschool, where we taught the children there about all of this and we used our interactive food pyramid. We then gave them a healthy lunchbox colouring sheet and samples of milk and cheese. They loved it! Senior Infants also allowed us to visit them to do this lesson!

This is the link to our Youtube video of our trip to the playschool. Daniel in 3rd Class made it for us!
