Hello from the Experimental School of Serres, Greece. We have not written our news for a long time because we had too many things to do. A short time ago we visited the Planetarium in Thessaloniki, the biggest city in Northern Greece. There, we saw the museum of ancient Greek technology and three 3D documentaries. The first documentary was about Charles Darwin and the evolution of species as well as about one of the most complicated ancient mechanisms, the ancient mechanism of Antikythera. It is said that ancient people studied the stars with this mechanism. During our day school trip we went to the Archaeological Museum of Amphipolis. Amphipolis was an ancient city near Serres. It was brilliant!! A week ago an ecological festival was held in Serres, the Eco Festival. We took part in it and presented to other students “magic experiments of Science”. This year one of our school subjects was Byzantine art. So we decided to make ourselves our own mosaics (psifidota). We have sent you some photos of our works. At the end of our school year we presented the “Ornithes” (the birds) of Aristophanes. It is an ancient Greek comedy specially adapted for children. Nevertheless, we have some sad news. One of our fish died and we were very sad. That’s all our news. We wish you a happy summer From E1 of the Experimental school of Serres

On Teusday we watch Karagiozis.It is a puppet theatre.
Karagiozis is a shadow puppet that comes from Turkey. His name means black eyes
Before the show the puppet master spoke to us about the history of the "Shadow Theatre" in Greece.
After the show we talked about the show and asked him a lot of questions.

Hello from Serres and a Happy New Year. We haven’t talked since last year!!! We have a lot of new things to tell you. First we went to watch the play “The hunchback of Notre Dame” from the local theatre of Serres. We liked it a lot because there was a lot singing and dancing. On the 21st December our school organized a bazaar with children’s handicrafts. The money from the bazaar was given for charity. On the same day we had our Christmas celebration. Our class participated with two plays. One of the plays was a comedy and the other was a sad one. We were great. We made our parents laugh in one play and be moved in the other. A few days ago we invited one of our class mates’ grandpa to talk about the educational system in the old times. We asked a lot of questions and he told us a lot of interesting things about his daily life when he was a pupil. We were very impressed when he told us that the teachers could beat the children in the past. Another piece of news is that we finished the aromatic boards. They are boards made with different spices such as pepper, anise, cinnamon and different natural material. While we were making them, the school smelled beautiful. We think it was great! Finally, we have a sad piece of news. One of our beloved classmates, Kalliopi, left for Germany with her family to live there. We are very unhappy because we have lived with her for many years. We hope that Kalliopi will read our news and will be happy wherever she is. Lots of kisses We’ll talk to you soon The pupils of E1 class of the Experimental School of Serres
