My impressions!:)

Today we had a fantastic time! It was Miss Cristina’s birthday, so you know what that means! More surprises! First of all, our follower Sotiria dropped by to say ‘Hello!’ and we talked about Greece and Germany in English! That was great fun…:D! Then, two children from New Zealand (Anna and Nick) paid us a visit. We talked about sports and we played games. Their mother was there, too. Her name is Barbara and she was a teacher in our school! We were so surprised when we heard that. Mrs. Barbara was Miss Christina’s teacher when she was a student! Anyway, it was a day I’ll never forget! Too bad Rafaela wasn’t there…:(

After we’d finished the project on the environment at school, I knew I had to start recycling. We had learnt a lot during the project. We should recycle because when we do, less rubbish goes to landfills and less rubbish gets burned, so we don’t need to burn fossil fuels. This way, we save energy and we prevent air pollution. I didn’t know that until we did this project. I used to throw paper, plastic and glass in regular bins.

I decided to change. I started recycling as much as possible. I recycled paper, some plastics, glass and aluminium. I didn’t throw away electricl devices like mobiles. I gave them away or I threw them in the special bins.

I was quite easy. The most difficult thing to do was to remember to recycle.

It was a nice try! I felt very proud of myself. Now, I believe that if everyone recycled, our planet would be a better place to live in!

Our expedition!

Our expedition

If you ask me, I would like to explore a jungle. I believe that it’s more interesting than a desert. There are a lot of strange trees and tropical flowers. There are a lot of wild animals, too.

In my opinion, we should get a torch because we could get lost at night. We should also get a first-aid kit, in case we are injured. We must take a mobile phone to call for help, a penknife to collect wood and a box of matches to light a fire.

I think we shouldn’t use a jeep because the jungle is thick and it won’t be able to move easily. Using a helicopter would be a good idea. We could also use a boat because we might have to cross a lake or a river.

Research on a game mentioned in class

Pin the Tail on the Donkey

Pin the Tail on the Donkey
is a game played by groups of children. It is common at birthday parties and other gatherings. A picture of a donkey with a missing tail is tacked to a wall within easy reach of children.
One at a time, each child is blindfolded and handed a paper "tail" with a push pin or thumbtack poked through it. The blindfolded child is then spun around until he or she is disoriented. The child gropes around and tries to pin the tail on the donkey. The player who pins their tail closest to the target, the donkey's rear, wins. The game, a group activity, is generally not competitive; "winning" is only of marginal importance.
Pin the Tail on the Donkey is suitable for children who are old enough to walk and to know better than to eat the small sharp tacks. The game is also used in child development research.
The game can also be played by teenagers and adults, especially if the "donkey" is replaced with depictions of something or someone else.

A "Get Well Soon" card


Dear Monika,

Don't worry about your stay in the hospital. I'm sure that the treatment for your illness will be successful and you will definitely be with all of us again in only a few days. But, think of the positive side, as well. You're in a big comfortable ward which is beautifully decorated and there are no other patients with you. All your classmates are looking forward to seeing you again. We are going to visit you next Monday and see how you spend your time. Also, we've bought you a present! I hope you will like it. Well, everything is going to be all right so, keep smiling because you will Get Well Soon!

Lots of love,


Planning an expedition

As far as I'm concerned, I would like to explore a jungle, which is on a tropical island in the Atlantic ocean. It would be a good idea to go on this expedition and learn the way that the native people try to survive with some basic things that the nature has given to them. Moreover, we could watch the life of wild animals and how they manage to protect themselves from the hunters.

From my point of view, we should take a box of matches with us, because we may need to make a fire. We should also get a compass in order to find our way around and a first-aid kit since it will be useful if somebody has an accident. Finally, we shouldn't forget a penknife which will help us cut different things easily and a mobile phone to communicate with someone if we need any kind of help.

If you asked me, we should travel to the island by plane to get to our destination quickly. Then, we could rent a jeep to explore the area.
