My opinion about a film

Last Wednesday I and my classmates saw an exciting film which was called "NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS".The film is very good,but the thing that impressed me is the way that the director made this film.This way called"STOP MOTION".First of all the director made muppets that a man moved .Then he took 12 photos in 1 minute and after that he joined the photos together. Many people worked for 3 years to make this film!!!

My favourite celebration is Christmas because your parents give you presents and at Christmas all the people decorate their houses with a tree.The people go to the church and then they eat around a big table a big chicken with potatoes.When they eat all the dinner they tell jokes and they sing all the time.At 12:00 pm the children go to sleep and when they wake up they run under the tree to open their presents!!!

Once upon a time I had a friend who was called  Kallia . Kallia didn't know why we celebrate Christmas.She asked her friends , her parents , her teacher,but she couldn't understand why we celebrate Christmas.Mary who was Kallia's best friend said that we celebrate Christmas ,because our parents give us presents.Οther people said that Christmas is their new tablet,a trip to America....
One day Kallia asked me.I opened a book and I started reading .Then I said : on 25th December Jesus Christ was born .So this the reason that we celebrate Christmas!!!!

My favorite singer

My favorite singer is Chris Brown 
Christopher Maurice "ChrisBrown (born May 5, 1989) is an American recording artistdancer, and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he taught himself to sing and dance at a young age and was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows. Having signed with Jive Records in 2004, Brown released his self-titled debut studio album the following year. It peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200 and was later certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). With his first single "Run It!" peaking atop the US Billboard Hot 100, Brown became the first male artist as a lead since Diddy in 1997 to have his debut single top the chart. His second album Exclusive (2007) spawned his second Hot 100 number one "Kiss Kiss", in addition to "With You" and "Forever". The album was also certified double platinum by the RIAA.
In 2009, Brown received much media attention after pleading guilty to felony assault of singer and his then-girlfriend Rihanna; he was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service.[1] His third album Graffiti was released later that year, and included the top-twenty single "I Can Transform Ya". Brown's fourth album F.A.M.E. (2011) became his first to top the Billboard 200; it spawned hit singles "Yeah 3x", "Look at Me Now", and "Beautiful People". F.A.M.E. earned Brown his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Album at the 54th Grammy Awards.[2] His fifth album Fortune was released in 2012. However, after the release of Exclusive, Brown's albums have not been well received by music critics.[3]

My opinion on the book

The pages of the book nightmare before christmas were good and bad.They were good because they were a good start for a story and they were bad because they were a little BIT boring but they were ok.I liked Jack and the strange voice of the doctor. Αlso his voice was a little scary.the little stupid place was where Sally put flowers in the doctor's drink then when he fell asleep Sally RAN away but then the doctor woke up and rolled with his chair and caught her.I mean it was a little stupid becauce he was in a chair and he caught her.Also I liked IT when Jack lived in Halloweentown and went to the Christmastown and then when he returned Jack told the people of Halloweentown about the Christmastown.

jack-o'-lantern is a carved pumpkin, or turnip, associated chiefly with the holiday of Halloween, and was named after the phenomenon of strange light flickering over peat bogs, called will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern. In a jack-o'-lantern, the top is cut off to form a lid, and the inside flesh then scooped out; an image, usually a monstrous face, is carved out of the pumpkin's rind to expose the hollow interior. To create the lantern effect, a light source is placed within before the lid is closed. This is traditionally a flame or electric candle, though pumpkin lights featuring various colors and flickering effects are also marketed specifically for this purpose. It is common to see jack-o'-lanterns on doorsteps and otherwise used as decorations during Halloween.

                               Oh!—fruit loved of boyhood!—the old days recalling,
                               When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling!
                               When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin,
                              Glaring out throught the dark with a candle within!

Samara: My favorite horror movie

It was a scary night and I was with my friends.We went to the Video land and we rented a horror story which was called Samara.When we went to my home, we watched the movie.In the movie Samara was a child and she was lived with her mother in a village.One night her mother took her and she threw her into a big and long well.Since that day Samara was a ghost and all the nights she went out of the well.All the people of the village got scared.

Twenty years later this village was destroyed and in this point a big city was built.The place where the well of Samara was was under of a house.In the house a big family lived.Samara was angry with the family.Samara wanted to kill all the family.At first, the family got scared because  she started to turn on and off the lights. One day Samara was on the TV but the family didn't understand it.They thought it was a trailer but suddenly Samara broke the TV and she killed the father.Then she disappeared .The family was cried for days.Another day Samara appeared in front of the family and she killed one of the three children.

Finally the family got angry and they were waiting for Samara.Suddenly she appeared. The family was ready that time. Samara she went to kill the mother but the mother took quickly a knife and she threw it to Samara and she died.That's all about my favorite horror movie.

Cool robots

Hi. I read some articles at the weekend and at the week. The best article, which I read it was <Cool Japanese robots>. I was impressed with that because the giant T-Rex because you can move it with your mobile phone and the robot which knows every sign language! Also the robot which you can play table-tennis!!
This proves Japanese have the greatest technology in the world!!!!!!!

Amazing kid

I think most usefulI and creative invention was underwater walking talking.I will have this invention.Now I like to make model cars.

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Amazing Kids!

I think, the best invention is Ritcie's Stachowski's because the underwater walkie-talkies are difficult for a kid to think of and invent. This is the most creative idea because now all the divers use them.
I haven't got any ideas for now but in the future I think I will have good and creative ideas!!!!

Council proposals

The proposals
The local council is planning to develop a piece of land in our neighbourhoud .The first proposal is to build a new supermerket and the second proposal is to build a  hotel for tenagers.

Tow reasons to not to build the supermarket
There are tow main reasons to not build the supermarket.First of all we don't need a supermarket because there are already tree supermarket in our neighbourhoud  and the second problem is the traffic.the traffic will be heavier,the streets will be more dangerous  to croos and the fumes will create more pollution.

The advandages of a center for teenagers.
The only sports centre that excist in this area  is very small,and the equipment is quite old.The proposal is to  build a sports centre that includes a cafe is an excellent idea.Not all teenagers are into sports,but if ther is a cafe the everybody inthis age group can meet in appropriate environment

Reccommentation and Suggestions
I strongly support having a safe place to go where I can relax with my friends.I reccomend that the local residents should start a petiton, which anybody over twelve years old can sign.The council should also have meetings where everybody in the area can express their opinion,so they can make the best decision.

In disguise for a day

Dear Fun TV,

I am writing to you because I want to spend a day in disguise in your TV show. I would like to look like Paul George, because he is my favourite basketball player and he comes from Greece.

In my opinion, to look like Paul George I must wear a basketball uniform with his name. I will have a moustashe and the number twenty- four on my uniform. Moreover, I must wear basketball sneakers. Then, I have to change my voice and make it deeper and I have to walk quickly. Also, I must put make up on to be black, because he is from the USA.

When I wear the disguise, I would like to fool my family and my friends. Furthermore, I will go to school with my uniform and if we have one, I will go to a fancy dress party to dance.

Thank you in advance and I am looking forward to your reply.

Best wishes,
Chris Pantalos

Council proposal

The proposals

The local council is planning to develop a piece of land in our neighbourhood. There is one way they might develop the land. The proposal is is to build a hotel. There are advantages and disadvantages.

The advantages of a new hotel

More tourists will be in our area and that means that  the local shop owners will have more money. Secondly, a new hotel is important to the area and it will add beauty and fame to the neighbourhood. Finally, there will be less unemployment, because the owner is going to hire a lot of employees.

The disadvantages of a new hotel

First of all, there will be more cars, so there will be more air pollution and traffic fumes. Furthermore, the traffic is another problem, because there will not be any parking spaces. Moreover, the increased noise will annoy the local residents, who may not be able to sleep comfortably or work quietly. Therefore, life in the neighbourhood will change.

Recommendations and suggestions

In my opinion, I would like a new hotel to be built,  because this place will improve very much. As for the increased noise, the residents will get used to it in the future. If I were in the their position, I would write a a report to the mayor and tell him their suggestions. Another solution is the residents to sign a petition and send the results to the council. Last but not least, they can have a meeting and make a decision.

The Description of a friend

         My best friends are two , but  today I'm going  to tell you about one of them. His name is agent 007 and I've known him for ten years ,since 2003.

       He's very good-looking ,but he's not tall.He's not fat or thin.He's slim, like me.007 is fit and well-built as all the students of the class. His clothes are casual, but fashionable.They're colourful, too. His face has two beautiful ,round and black eyes and his hair is short ,straight and black ,too. When he gets embarrassed ,he has red cheeks.
      My friend, 007, is very tolerant because he has never problem with people of different nationalities and he's also very polite and kind with other people because he always says "please" and " thank you".007 is very responsible with the school projects.

     Once, my dad ,Alex, 007 and I  were playing football and suddenly , the ball hit my hand forcefully and I fell down yelling in pain. 007 came to help me with everything he could and that's one of the important reasons that he's one of my best friends, because one  friend who stands by you in pressure is one hundred times more valuable than friends who stand by you in pleasure.
