As part of the Culture Week we gave wings to our imagination and went on a trip...
We travelled through Portugal, marching in the popular and traditional songs; Italy, tasting pizzas with rocket salad and cheese; Greece, competing in the Olympic Games and dancing Zorba; United Kingdom, where we danced ceilidh and enjoyed cucumber sandwiches with tea and, finally, Spain and Germany, dancing with castanets and recreating the Oktoberfest to the sound of Abba.
The second Handbook helps teachers' to work with children with learning difficulties. This project is not only about multilingual education but mainly about Children's rights. One of the rights is to provide education for all children.
This handbook aims to help teachers in their classes. In there you can find suggestions, activities and adjustments with which you can plan more relaxed and easier lessons for the students and teachers as well. The goal is to provide one copy of the handbook for each classroom, kindergarten included.
Sometime during the project and before the lock down period we tried to find out how much our students' parents know about our project
Sometime before the end of the school year I have asked my students to evaluate all the effort we have done so far.
I got 31 out of 40 responses
The moodle platform which I used to teach the book "The boy at the back of the class" to my sixth graders was evaluated and awarded with a 2021 ELT Excellence Award by this year's judging committee. It was a long and difficult process as the number of entries surpassed not only last year's number but also our expectations.
The 6th graders were involved in a school competition called "Bravo schools" which deals with the Sustainable Development Goals.
Our intention was to make pour students' sensitive towards environmental issues and help them get informed and change the way they confront these matters.
We worked with my colleague Mrs Tsirikidou during the lockdown period while at home and we created a lesson plan in Greek and English which we applied and the results were really rewarding.
Among 342 schools our work was distinguished as an excellent one.
As you already know we had to move last year and now our school is situates in an old building in the city centre of Thessaloniki.
In order to help you get an idea how our school looks like since you cannot visit we have prepared a short presentation about the building.
