In this period of time we must all be calm, patient and to remember that we stay at home for our good and health. I know that we can not meet and hang out with our beloved people and going out in general. However, there are and positive aspects of this situation. First of all, we relax and we take a quit big break from our lessons and our studies, something that I am sure that everyone wanted or needed. Furthermore, now, it’s a good chance to do things that we wanted, but we couldn’t do as we were busy. Also, in order to spend our time productively, we can start a hobby, take care of our body, exercise, do housework, dear with cooking, play board games with our family, read books or our school books. If we stay positive, have good vibes and spend our time productively, this period will pass more quickly and pleasant!
The negatives and the positives of staying inside are many and different for every person. For me, the negatives are mainly phycological because I can’t go outside with my friends or my family. Also, I don’t have the ability to go to school or my after school activities, and for this reason, I have nothing productive and fun to do all day. However, the positives of staying inside are also many. In my opinion, the most important one is that we have united as a society and therefore we are stronger together. Also staying inside gave us time to try new things such as to find new hobbies and many more. In conclusion, both the negatives and the positives are important, and we should try to face them with a positive attitude.
My favourite subject at school is maths. It is a very difficult subject but very interesting. It is a very different subject like no other because it has to do with numbers and not with the alphabet. In my opinion, this subject exercises your mind and does good for you. This was my favourite subject during elementary school and I love it now in high school. I think that in the future I will do something that has to do with maths.
My home isn’t very big and it isn’t very small. It has two big bedrooms, one for my parents and one for the kids. It has a small bathroom and a not very big kitchen. It has a big living room. It has a small corridor and two big dining rooms. It has three balconies and one garage. Finally, it has a very big garden and a terrace.
My favourite season is summer. That is my favourite season because we don’t have school and we have a lot of free time. I love summer because I love to swim with my father and my sister Agapi. Sometimes, my grandfather stays at the beach all morning and sometimes he goes in the afternoon too, because he loves the sea. In the summer I have lots of time to play with my sisters and go walking with my mum on a beach and after that, I go with my father swimming. Hesitantly this year with COVID 19 we can’t heat the summer as we always did we won’t take our baths it won’t be the same summer we always did.

Now, I’m living in my village, called Anaxos. It’s a small village in the North-east part of the island. It’s a beautiful and quiet place for someone to live in. It’s green, with many trees and gardens, small, cosy houses that people use for their vocation. There is not a school and the children who live here have to get a school bus for going to their school. Also, people who need to go to the pharmacy or the post office, have to go to the neighbour village. There is not a pharmacy, post office, cinema or a school here but there are a small church and some mini markets.
Not many families live here during the winter, but in the summer a lot of people visit the place to pass their vocation. In the summer the place is very nice with many shops, restaurants, cafes and every kind of sea sport. The beach is beautiful and the sunset is the most amazing of all.
Very popular fruits from the citrus family. They took their name from their orange colour and they are the most known and favourite fruits all over the world. They can be eaten fresh or they can give juice, which is an important part of breakfast. Also, the fruits can be used in cooking, giving their special flavour and aroma to many recipes. They can be used as decoration on cakes and of course, they give a delicious jam.
Most of the people eat an orange or drink orange juice every day. Oranges are a very good source of vitamin C, which helps the body grow and fights infections.
In tradition oranges are the symbol of love and marriage in many cultures as in South America and Asia and orange is the colour of optimism.
Now, because of the pandemic of COVID-19 everything has changed. Schools and our school activities are closed, so we have to stay at home and take some lessons on the computer. I think that the digital way of learning is interesting. We use technology for learning things, search for information about subjects, write messages to our teachers and classmates. We often make videos and put funny images to our messages, to communicate with others and we have fun. Very often we take part in quizzes and this is really amusing, better than having tests in a book. Actually, this way of learning can’t be compared with the active and real contact we have each other in a real classroom of a real school.I’ve missed my friends, my classmates, my teachers I’ve missed the moments and the emotions we share at school.
So I’m looking forward to getting over this difficult situation and return to our school.
The Hydra of the lake Lerna is the most known dragon in Greek mythology. According to the myth, Hydra had the body of a huge snake and nine heads. For every head chopped off, Hydra could regrow two other heads. So it was impossible to be defeated. That beast was killed by Hercules with the help of his nephew Iolaus. So first Hercules cut off one head, using the sword that Athena had given to him. Then Iolaus burn the neck with fire, and that way the new heads couldn’t be regrown. Hercules cut off all the heads of Hydra. He placed the last, central head which was immortal under a big rock and dipped his arrows in Hydra’s poisonous blood. The goddess Hera who hated Hercules, placed Hydra in the sky as a constellation.

Dragons are the most popular mythological creatures. Dragon tales are known in many cultures all over the world.
Sometimes people believed that dragons were useful and protective and other times they believed that dragons were very dangerous creatures. Old Christians believed that dragons represented Satan.
There were many different kinds of dragons, with different colours and scaly skin. Some dragons had wings and could fly. Some others didn’t have wings. They were called warms and they lived in the water (in the sea, lakes or big rivers). Some dragons could speak or breathe fire. Some dragons lived in a palace under the ocean and some others could be found in caves. All of them liked gold and priceless stones. So people believed that every dragon had a treasure. The dragon’s blood was poisoned and someone who battled a dragon could be killed even in that way, by the beast’s blood. Also, people believed that a fearless army of warriors with swords and shields could be created from the dragon teeth if they got seed in the ground.
