Last week, the 7th grade went to Herlikovice for a skicamp and I could join them. We had a lot of fun together. Everday from Mondy to Thursday, we went skiing. The students were divided in three groups after their skiing skills. Often I drove with the best group, but sometimes I also help the beginners. All students did a good progress of their skiing skills during this week. But beside skiing we went also one half day cross-country skiing and one half day hiking in Spindlerluv Myln. In the evening, the teachers prepared some theorie about skiing and we played some funny games. The nice week was so really fast over and never boring. I’m very glad that I could join them.
On 25th of January I prepared again a healthy dish for the cooking club. This time I cooked with the children pasta with a tomatoe-vegetable-sauce. The children enjoyed the cooking, because they like it when I prepare something new for them.

On the 24. of January the whole school of Žďárky went to theatre in Náchod to watch “Chovej se jako člověk” (“behave like a human”). I thought that we are going to watch some theatre play, but it was more like a concert. As much as I understood their songs were about courtesy, manners and things like that. Children seemed to like it, because most of them were actively doing along the movements what were shown in the stage.
At the 15th of December the 7th grade had a sleepover in school. They prepared some Christmas crafts and food for selling at the school Christmas market in the afternoon. Ineta and I helped them with the crafts and preparing some snacks for the evening. Then I prepared with them also a healthy dinner as part of my miniproject-“Take care of you and your world”. We cooked together “Chilli sin Carne”, which is a stew out of beans and vegetables in tomato sauce. The students enjoyed the cooking, but for some it was in the end a bit too spicy. After the dinner we played with the students some games like hide and seek. All in all, it was a really funny afternoon and evening with the students 🙂

Every Wednesday there is a cooking club in Komenskeho school in Nové Město nad Metují for little children, which I join every second week. On 2nd of November I could prepare a recipe for the club. I decided to do something easy and healthy, which is also new for them – a Buckwheat salad. You just mix for it cooked Buckwheat and salad, cucumber, tomatoes, Balkan cheese, spices (basil, pepper, salt), oil and vinegar together. So I prepared the Buckwheat and the children could cut the vegetables and cheese and mix in the end the ingredients. In the end I just added the spices, oil and vinegar to show them how much they need when they do it on their own and how it should taste. The children really liked this dish and were curious in it, because it was something new for them. It was also part of my Miniproject – take care of you and your world which is about showing the students a healthy and environmentalfriendly lifestyle with fun.
