The Grinch (by anna and maria)

In my view, the movie ''The Grinch'' is a very funny movie!It's the best choice of movie for christmas holidays.The fact that Jim Carey is the main character makes it funnier..I have seen the part 1 of the movie on youtube and I found it really spectacular.The movie is about a monster witch lives near a village of citizens who love Christmas,Whoville.One day two boys went at his cave by accident to have fun and made him mad.From this time, Grinch wanted to destroy their Christmas to take revenge on the whos. In part 2 I think that the Grinch is going to  destroy their christmas and as a result he will let the whos down.But who knows?The film might have an unexpected end.

The Grinch

 I think Grinch will destroy the Whoville and the Christmas spirit of the town! The little girl will understand that Grinch is in the town and she will do everything to change Grinch's opinion for Christmas.Finally Grinch will love Christmas and all Whos will change their opinion about Grinch!

THE GRINCH!!(ELENA-IZOLDY)


We believe that this movie is spectacular!
The characters are really funny.Some of the reasons are: the costumes of the actors ,the sceneries and the lines.We recommend that movie for everybody who loves Christmas!
In our view,this grim monster"Grinch"will try to destroy the Christmas atmosphere and cause a lot of damages to take revenge of some naughty teenagers that made fun of him.After a lot of tries to destroy the area, the little girl that we saw previous,will try to change monster's mind about destroying their Cristmas and celebrate with all the other residents!But who knows what will happen in the end?

The Grinch

I think Grinch is an enjoyable movie because there are funny characters.

People love Christmas in Whoville but there is a monster who is called Grinch.He hates Christmas and he wants to destroy anything that has to do with Christmas.

Eventually Grinch won't destroy Whoville and everyone will be pleased.

THE GRINCH


I think that Grinch will try to destroy the town but the little girl will do everything to change his opinion.So at the end Grinch will stop hating Christmas and he will be a good and a friendly monster with all the people.He'll also help the people to prepare the presents and distribute them to the houses!!!!!

The Grinch


The Grinch is a Christmas movie that is about Whoville a small town and a monster Grinch.
It's Christmas time and the people of the town are being prepared for Christmas. However, Grinch hates Christmas and his plan is to destroy this year's Christmas.He is leaving his cave and goes to the town, wearing a costume, so nobody can understand him.After that he starts to destroy the Christmas. Is he going to destroy Christmas at last?In my opinion he won't achieve to destroy Christmas, but he will also change his mind about Christmas.

Oliver Twist (By Charles Dickens)

Oliver Twist was born in a work-house.Work-houses were buildings for people who had no job and were lazy.The local gouverment provided accomodation there with beds and food.But this place was uncomfortable, unfriendly, dirty and the food was little.The whole point was to make poor and lazy people to find jobs.His mother was pregnant from an unknown guy, so she left her house to avoid the humiliation.But unfortunately she died on the birth.So Oliver was an orphan and all alone.He started working from the age of 9.The only thing that he was eating every day was tasteless soup and only on Sundays a little bread.He couldn't eat more than one plate of soup and the plate was never washed!One day, Oliver asked gently for a little more soup.Then Mr Bumble (an officer) shut him in a dark room for a week!And every day, Mr Bumble was hitting him with a bat.Mr Bumble wrote a note and put it on the noticeboard.The note was saying:Everybody who will take Oliver Twist away from the work-house, will be rewarded with 5 pounds.Oliver was crying all day and couldn't sleep at nights.He was starving and he was wearing rugs.One day Mr Sowberry (a person who made coffins for dead peopla from tha work-house) came....













Here you can learn some things about Charles Dickens

Oliver Twist


Oliver Twist was born in a work house, with no mother an no father.The Workhouse was a place where poor people stay.They were eating little food and they were very dirty.One day Oliver asked for more food and then they closed Oliver in a cellar.Then Mr Bumble thought that Oliver will be a criminal.In addition to that, Mr Bumble was giving five pounds if somebody took Oliver to work with him.One day Mr Sowerberry came in the workhouse.Mr Bumble told him for the five pounds in case he wanted to take Oliver.

Oliver Twist


His mother was pregnant in the street and Oliver was born in a workhouse.In a workhouse homeless and very poor people stayed.When she bore Oliver,she died.Oliver grew up in the workhouse.He was eating meat in water and he wanted some more food.For that reason Oliver was a prisoner for a whole week.The workhouse was giving five pounds if somebody wanted to give work to Oliver.Nobody came.Finally one day Soweberry wanted to give some work to Oliver.Soweberry made coffins for dead people.

Oliver Twist


Oliver Twist is a novel writen by Charles Dickens. It takes place in the 18th century.It talks about Oliver Twist. In part one we see the birth of this boy. He was born in a workhause. His mother left her home because she wasn't married and she also was pregnant. In this time being unmarried and pregnant was something like a crime. After Olivers birth, his mother died. So Oliver had no parents. Then the book takes us 9 years later, when Oliver lives in the workhause and must work for 3 soups per day. When Oliver in one of the meals asks for more soup the chef brings Mister Bumble, an officer in the town, who takes Oliver as a prisoner. Next day, a notice appears on the Workhause. It says: 5 pounds for anyone who will take Oliver Twist.

HORROR FILMS!!

One of the best horror films i've ever seen is Paranormal Activity.It is a non-fiction film so the characters are not successful and they are not actors...

The whole film is a real story with no director and studio but it was shot with the man's camera.It;s about a couple.Something bad (like devil)is always following the woman,but she tries with her husband to overcome it by changing houses because they believed that something was going on with the hauses....But the probleme wasn't the houses but the woman!!!!!At the end the devil kills the man and the woman returns into the devil!

In my opinion,the thing that makes this film scary is that it is a real story with no adaptation.But it's not only that!The sounds that it's got make the film scary,too

THE BODY!

My film takes place in a lonely haunted house.It happent in 2009.The stars in my movie are a murderer,a body and some teenagers.It involves a murderer in a haunted house .One very spooky night some teenagers(Mike,Jason and Tim)went in a haunted house to spend their evening and suddenly they discovered a body.Who killed this man?That's a very complecated story!!!

THE CONSERT!!!

The German group Tokyo Hotel gave a concert in my town last Saturday.The concert was at the "Pagritio stadioum"at 8 o'clock.When i arrived there was a capacity crowed but fortunately as seats were not taken!!!

Right from the begining the atmosphere was electric.Their songs were awsome.For example when they were singing their hit"Don't Jump"everybody was dancing.But when they were singing quieter songs,everybody was crying and waving the lighters....The lights were fantastic.Every time the drummer played the lights changed different colours.

However,there were some bad points about the concert!Some silly men were throwing plastic bottles in the air and a women got hurt.Another disadantage was that the guitar player lost the rhythm and finally they ended up not playing that song!!!!!!

If we makean exeption of these problemes,overall the concert was apsoloutely fabulous.If you like Tokyo Hotel,i would recommend you to go to one of their concerts and admire them.

Last month i went to the cinema with my friends and we saw a horror film "A VAMPIRE". It takes place in a big city in 2008. The main characters are jake, a policeman and a vampire.
A vampire wanted to destroy the town and ate animals. A policeman and some of his workmates tried to catch him. And one they achieved it. They catch him. So a policeman and his workmates save the town.
The film is scary because it shows a vampire eating the animals and this is frightening, but i like it.

Danger in the mountains


After one day of walking two people arrived at the mountains.Jack and George.They planned to see tha nature in the mountains.

They were walking for hours.Suddenly,they saw a big snake.They began to panic.They were looking very worried.

Jack thre a stone at the snake.The snake didn't react.They understoode that the snake was dead.

After days ago they had seen all the nature of the mountains

28 Days Later

    28 Days Later is a horror film that was directed by  Danny Boygle.The stars are  Cilian Marphy,Naomie Harrisand Christofer Ecclestor.The actors are very talented and popular.Naomie Harris had played in Pirates of Carribean too.It is a quite scary film.On one hand,Iliked the film a lot,but on the other hond,I dislike it because is gory.
  The plot is that in England there was an illness and every ill person become something like a zombie.Only four people were rescued and they should had to a village that there was an army of about twenty peopole.These four people had a car to go therebut unfotunately the futher of one kid died.So the other three carried on alone.Finally they arrived there and they were safe.The army had a ''zombie'' because they wanted to see what the illness is like.But the small guy managed to escape and he ate all the army and the boy took the two girls and left the place by helicopter.
  The story was scary when ''zombies''attack suddenly and of course the music and the gory scenes make things even more frightening!

My Hometown



I think a hometown for a person is constantly important for him.If he lives for years he has loads of experiences and memories his friends, his neighbours and the last but not least his family.He can't forget those moments.The sights of his hometown and the smells which come from other kitchens in his neighbourhood!So the hometown for a person is very important espesially if he lives there for years.
Evanesence gave a concert last Saturday on 31st of October in Pagritio Stadium.The stedium was full and there was a capacity crowd.
They played their bestselling songs for example ''BRING ME TO LIFE'' and ''MY IMMORTAL''.People waved their lighters and their mobile phones and sang all together.The crowd went wild.The lead singer Amy Lee has a brilliant voice and all the other members of the group were fantastic:The bass player,the drummer and the guitarists.The atmosphere was fantastic.
There were,however,some disappointing things about the concert.Some of the fans were a problem and they made so much noise that we couldn't hear anything during the quiet songs.
Apart from this it was an unforgettable concert.If you like pop music,I would definitely recommend you go to Evanesence concert!...

THE HORROR FILM

One of the horror films that i have seen was "i see your death". All in all, the film was interesting for many reasons.
The main character was Nick, Jack and Helena. these teenagers constitute a company. Jack and helena have got a real talent, but Nick was very boring and viewers can't understand what he is saying because he has got dyslexia.
The plot is about a zombie which tries to kill the people. every one was killed in a different way, because when the zombie was teenagers, somebody killed him.
There was a thing that scared me. This thing was, when the zombie cut the neck and took out Jack's guts.

A Horror Film

One of the horror films that I have seen and I like is SAW. The characters are Carey Elwes , Leigh Whannel and Danny Glover. In this film 2 men wake up in a bathroom with a dead body between them. They had been victims of a serial killer called Jigsaw by police. Each find a tape in the toilet which orders them to kill the other until 18:00 or his family will die. On the Jigsaw's face there is a mask and we don't know he is. The film has a lot of gory scenes and it is really frightening. And the most important thing is that there is violence and it makes it even more frightening!

Silence of the Lambs


The Silende of the Lambs is a horror film, that was shot in 1991. The main characters are: Hanibal Lecter and Clarice Starling.
In the movie a young agent of FBI Clarice Starling visits Hanibal Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer, in order to get information for a serial killer named 'Buffalo Bill'. Buffalo Bill has kidnapped the daughter of a president. However, to get the information Clarise is going to talk about the worst memories of her childhood years.
In my opinion this film is very good because it has a lot of suspense and it makes you curious about how all this is going to end.

My favourite group

    The rock group scorpions gave a concert in my town last Saturday in pagritioum stadium. There was a copacity crowd.
     When they started to sing the crowd sing with them and the atmospher was amazing. The lead singer had a great time. It was fantastic to listen my fantastic songs live from scorpions. They played their bestelling song and the crowd went wild.
     On the whole the concert was great but i didn't like the drummer so much and some of the songs they sang wasn't so good. The bass player wasn't good too but ok, he played the hits very well.
      In my opinion Scorpions were fantastic in the concert last Saturday. I really love the Scorpions so i think i would recommend that you go and see them.

My Home town

My home town is not like any other towns.My home town is Iraklion. It is on an island : Crete . It is a big town. I like it because you have many things to do when you are hanging out with friends like : go for a walk in Koule , watch a movie at the cinema, go for shopping and many other thing.However , I don't like my town for some reasons like :it is a noisy town, with many cars and much litter. If I moved away in another town I would definately miss my neighbourhood.I would espiacelly miss my relatives, my friends and my own home because I've lived there since I was born.

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Last Saturday evening my favourite group 'Stavento' gave a big concert in the Pagrition stadium in my town and there was a capacity crowd.
When the group came on stage and they sang their first song 'Inside You' the atmosphere was crazy. Also, they had fantastic lighting and a video wall.
Unfortunately, there were some problems in the concert. For example, some minutes before the concert started, some people threw tear gas. also the sound system was not very good.
However, despite these problems, the concert was amazing. I had a good time. if you like rap music, i am sure that you'll like this group.
   What are the best ways to learn vocabulary when you are learning foreign language?
   Learning a foreign language is important for me because I wnat to be a famous footballer.I sould study now if I want to make it an find a good job.However learnig all of vocabulary is very difficult so I souldn study hard.
   Firstly one good way to improve your English is to study many english books and then write what you understund.I use this type of learning and it helps me a lot.
   Secondly another good way to learning English is to watch films and if you wantyou can add and English subtitles too.This is good because you can learn how to speak politly to the people and how to write something in a letter in a composition.
   In conclusion knowing foreign languages is very important because you can find a good job or you can go on university or visit another countries.

After a shile they heard a strange noise.They saw a haunted house.The noise was coming from it.They went in the haunted house.It was a very big house.The door opened!They came into the house.They saw two people.They were ghosts.The children were frightened.In the end man and a woman undressed and they said with a voice.You have a nice Halloween.
At first the children were very scared and frightened.They were in panic.But then they were quiet and they were happy!

Dear Pam,

Thanks for your email.It's great to hear from you.The photos were brilliant.
Also, the party was great! However it took me a whole day to clean up the house, because it was in a terrible mess.There was rubbish everywhere and broken glasses in the kitchen.I'm glad my mum came back at night so she didn't see the house in this mess! It's OK you left.
As for the photos, they are brilliant. It was really hard to choose the one's I want. So I really like the one where we are all together. You are very funny there! I also want the one that we are together.
Next month when I'm coming to your new place, I'd like to visit the centre, and maybe go sightseeing. I found your diary. Do you want me to sent it or wait until I come to your house? Write back soon.

Love,
Mary

WHAT THE BEST WAYS TO LEARN VOCABULARY WHEN YOU ARE LEARNING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE

   Learning a foreign language is important. However learning all of the vocabulary is very difficult.
   Firstly make up your own sentences using the new words,note down new words in your vocabulary notebook and then  through your vocabulary book regularly looking at the words you have written down.
   Secondly you must read English magazines and watch English speaking films with English subtitles.
    Conclusion,learning a foreign language is the most difficult.In my opinion you must play English games and read the instructions in English.

HOW I STARTED RECYCLING

   At my school we have done a project about recycling.Al the children threw away paper,glass and plastic. After we'd finished the project on the environment at school,i knew i had to start recycling.                                    
   I decided to recycling because we have the energy so it is important to recycle.
   It's difficult to understand what you can and can't recycle.There aren't enough recycling bins so i and teacher from school we decided to buy some recycling bins.
   In my school all the children and teachers are now recycling.I'm pleased that i had done it.
   
     My name's Babis ,i'm a 15 year old student and i'm from Iraklio, the capital of Crete.
    I live with my parents, two big brothers names are George and Manos, and a small sister in the Mastabas area of Iraklio. in my neghbourhood there are many parks, shops and schools, but there aren't any cinemas or internet cafes. The city centre is 15 minutes walk from my neighborhood.
    In my share time there many things that i can do (like playing basketball or football, reading comics or playing the guitar) buy i prefer to listen to pop music on my phone. my favorite pop singer is Mixalis Xatzigiannis because he has got a good voice. Also,i go to the cafes, because i can meet with my friends.
   I want a pen friend , because i would like to know some things about music and football in your country.

Putting on a concert

    Do you want something fun to do in the evening? You can play with your friends in the school concert. It's great fun. 
    First you have to decide what you want people to do. you can be a singer or a dancer. If you want to be a singer for example you can write your own song. You must decide who has each part.                    
    I must tell you that i am directing the show so that means i'm in control. We must do many rehearsales because we have many songs and we must remember them. We must find the instruments for the singers and the costumes for the dancers too.  
    you can invite your friends or your family . It will be in oyr school. Have fyn and good luck.

The destruction of the ozone layer

The problem

In our atmosphere there is a layer that contains ozone.This is the ozone layrer which is important for our life.Why is it important?The ozone prevents the harmful UV rays from reaching the ground.Unfortunately for many years people used to use products with CFCs in them.CFCs are dangerous because they destroy the ozone.The effect is that harmful UV rays are reaching the ground and damage our eyes and skin.

The cause

The cause is the destruction of the ozone layer.This is because of the CFCs.The products that contain CFCs are the old air conditioners and fridges and the spray cans

The solution

One solution is to find some other chemicals to replace CFCs.So we have to recycle our old fridges and air conditioners.Fortunately there are some changes in the law shich forbid the use of spray cans with CFCs in them.

COME TO CRETE


You'll love it in the summer!

If you visit this beautiful island you can go to our clear beaches.Go to a fish tavern and eat our local foods and drinks like ouzo.You can also visit defferent attraction of Crete.Also Crete has beautiful views and ports with lots of lights , boats and it's a good idea to go for a walk or visit our archaeological museums.

And you'll love it in the winter!

You can go on a trip to a mountain and play with the snow or make snowmen.This is a good way to entertain you and your family and have fun.Then you can go on a restaurant made of wood with fireplaces and eat tasty hot local foods.

Here are just a few of the fantastic attractions that Crete has!


  • Knossos palace

  • museum of Leonardo Da Vinci

Deforestation

Nobody knows exactly how much of the world's rainforests have already been destroyed and continue to be,each year.
In order to say rainforests,we need to know why they are being destroyed.
The immediate causes of rainforest destruction are clear.The main cause is agriculture and in drier areas,fuelwood collection.Another cause is logging.Commercial logging companies cut down mature trees that have been selected for their timper.The companies defend themselves by saying that the forests regrow naturally and in time.Of course that is not true.Other problems for the environment is that plants and animals become extinct and the trees can't produce the oxygen we need.
The obvious solution is to stop destroying rainforests.Of course,that is much easier to say than to do it.All the people who care about that,have to convince the governments to protect rainforests.

The hole in the ozone layer

                                                        
 
  All people know about the hole in the ozone layer.The hole was discovered in 1970 by scientists.Scientists discovered what caused the problem. There were some gases in some products. These are called CFCs. CFCs are produced by old fridges, air conditioners and spray cans. Today there aren't CFCs anymore.
  The ozone layer is between about 15 and 30 kilometres above the ground. The ozone layer prevents ultraviolet rays from featcing the sun. These rays are very dangerous for the eyes and skin, so we can understand how important the ozone layer is to the people. 

HOW I STARTED RECYCLING?

In the past the children had thrown away their rubbish on the floo at school. I decided to start recycling at school. At first i decided to do a project about the environment. After we `d finished the project on the environment at school, i knew a had th start recycling.
I decided to recycle because we can save energy. Also now we can thrw away plastik, paper ang glass in the recycling bins.
All this procedure is veru difficult, because there isn `t enough money to buy a lats at recycling bins.
most childrennow recycle and the school is clean. Now all the children and teathers are very happy.

Put on a play

If you want something fun to do in the evenings, why not put on a play with your friends?It's great fun and it is very easy!

You have to choose the type of play you want,for example rock or pop.We usually write own plays.They're usually rock.When you know what part you playing it's time to decide who will play the most difficult part.

It's a good idea to have regular rehearsals.We rehears three times a week.It takes time for people to understand the notes.Ask all the singers to find their own costumes.

When you're ready,invite your friends and family to come and watch the play.You don't need a school to do that.Someone's living room is fine.Have fun,and good luck with the concert!

''THE GLOBAL WARMING''

    The global warming is a very serious problem for our planet, because when the ice melts, the sea level will go up.
    The problem start, when in the past one storm cut down the biggest iceberg in the word. Then the scientists built a meteorological station on the iceberg and then they understood that the sea level was going up. 
    One of the solutions is to find some ways to save energy. Another way is to build some dams on the coastal of  cities.

Ierapetra

Hey, you can go for holidays at Ierapetra!!!!!

To begin with Ierapetra is a place near the sea.It is near Agios Nikolaos in Greece.

In addition to this tourists can get a plane to arrive at Heraclion of Crete and then it is about 68 kilometres until you arrive at Ierapetra.You should book tickets because many people go there, and if you don't book the accomondation you shouldn't find another hotel.

It has amazing beaches and cold seas.But Ierapetra also has negative points.It has many tourists.

In conclusion in Ierapetra is incredible and you must go there!!!

HALLOWEEN.....!!!!!!!!!!

Finally his friends found him and when he told them the story all the children laughed and they were very happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DANGER IN THE MOUNTAINS


Last year my friend Elena and I,decided to go to explore the Olympus Mountains.When we arrived at the mountains we saw that all the place was covered in the snow and no one was there.

We started to climb the mountains but we realized that the ground was rocky and rough and we couldn't carry on.We started to panic and we were scared because there wasn't anybody to help us.We did our best and we started to climb again.

Fortunately in the end we were very lucky and we managed to climb it.We were very happy and satisfied with our achivement.It was an experience that we'll never forget.

Article:(stop the pop)

Dear Editor
I recently read an article in your newspaper about pop music.
The writer argued that teenagers waste too much time listening to
music.I would like to disagree.

To begin with, people spend a lot of time in their work or schools.
They are tired and students spend a lot of time studing.So music is
a good way to relax,to entertain and to escape that pressure for
example one very good singer is Michael Jackson.He is the king of pop.
He's talented and he's music and lyrics are lovely.

In addition to that,music brings people together.The famous pop singer
Madonna is performing in our country this mounth and lot's of teenagers
and adults will go to the concert.
I love Madonna's music because it's different from the others.It entertains
me.Music provides a way for them to meet new friends or share experiences
with your best friends.

In conclusion I would like to say that people also listen to music when they're sad to forget their problems or when they're happy to entertain ,so music is very important
for them.

Yours faithfull,
Izoldy Tsagarakh

Learning Vocabulary

Learning a foreign language is very important so that everyone can communicate however leanrning all of the vocabulary is very difficult.
Firstly to learn a foreign language you need a good teacher. In addition you must want to do this because if you don't want to learn a language and you do it for your mum you will never learn the language.
Secondly the best ways to learn vocabulary when you are learning a foreign language is to look up words you don't know in a dictionary. What is moreto note down new words in your vocabulary notebook. Further more reading English books and magazines is a good way to learn vocabulary. Another way is when you say a word think of another one with a similar meaning. The essential thing you must do when you are learning a new language is to go through your vocabulary book regularly looking at the word you have written down.
In conclusion learning new vocabulary is difficult but important . In my opinion learning a new vocabulary is the basic thing of a foreign language.

Iraklion!

Iraklion is a big city in Crete. Crete is near Rodos , Athens and Afrika.
If you want to visit it,you can take a plane from Athens or Thessaloniki and here you are in Iraklion. You also have to book accomondation in advance because Iraklion is a place with many visitors and tourists.
The main attractions of Iraklion are the big museums that are worth visiting and the palaces of Knossos, Faistos, Zakros e.t.c. Except from this Iraklion has many beautiful beaches and restaurants with many different kinds of food. In the evenings you might want to go shopping or go for a walk. The centre of Iraklion is the place with plently of shops to go and buy nice things. Although, there are so many things to do in Iraklion, the city is a little noisy and sometimes in the summer it is crowded.
In my opinion, Iraklion is the best place to visit every season!

The EXPEDITION....!!

We started our expedition with all the equipments that we needed to have.There were three of us.Me, my good partner John and my best friend Nik!Our expedition was to the mountain 'Ben Nevis' and we didn't have a leader.

We were in the midle of the journey, when Nik said:'Hey I think something is going wrong here'.I said:'What?Is it something dangerous?'And he replied to me:'Yes!I think that my rope is going to break any minuite now!'I froze and I kept looking at the height we were at for five minuites.Then I said:'Stay here.I'll go to bring another one!But I have to go down and I'll be a while so don't move at all!'He didn't say anything.He just nodded.But while me and Nik were trying to find a solution, John had reached the top and he couldn't help us.I had already began to panic!
       
I went down after two hours and I found the rope.I tried to climb again, faster this time!To my surprise when I finally reached Nik he was smiling!I gave him the rope and he tried to change the old one with the new one.This moment was the worse moment in my life.I heared a terrible scream and when I loooked to Nik's side he WASN'T THERE!!!I started to cry because I had realized that he had fallen!

Finally I reached the top crying and when I told John what had happened , he had an unknown look on his face and he cried too.When we called the police nobody could find his body.....After that, I didn't go on any expedition again!
