Students from Year 4 – class 1, studied with their teacher the churches of Giannitsa and St. George . Then they drew some beautiful pictures !
Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials.
The students used colored cardboard which was cut into small pieces.
First they saw many pictures of mosaic art. Then they chose a theme and they started with the help and the guidance of the teacher of art .
The children from Y6 Class 1, read the questionnaire of their English partners and asked to send their answers in their own writing
Here they are along with our greetings to all of you.
Although Greece is mainly a mountainous country, our town (Giannitsa , population 35.000) is situated in the middle of its biggest plain. (The plain of central Macedonia).
We are surrounded by cotton fields and peach trees, which are irrigated by the river Loudias.
Loudias isn’t very big (Length:32km, Width: 60m and Depth: about 5m) but it’s very important to our local economy.
Loudias’ water level is the same as that of the sea and it remains calm all year long. This makes the river ideal for sports like canoe-kayak or skiffing. There is a rowing club at the river banks. During the 2004 Olympic Games many athletes used to train in our river.
Students from Year two – class 3, studied the river with their teacher. They also drew some beautiful pictures. The best chosen were turned into school pin badges.
