The Erasmus + “Through Artistic Abilities to Develop Basic Skills” program was successfully completed on Friday 25/5/2018 in the 1st Elementary School with the presentation of the classic fairytale ‘Red Riding Hood” The students of the 5th and 6th grade of the 1st Primary School of Schimatari presented the theatrical performance “Red riding hood” based on the homonymous classical tale, completing with this action the participation of the school in the two-year European Erasmus + program implemented in cooperation with Croatian schools, Poland and Slovenia. The play was prepared by the students through art, music and theatre clubs. The art club edited the scenery, which the students had the original idea of not being stable but animated by themselves. At the club of dance- music, the children learned to sing in English the songs of the theatrical performance as well as dubbed in Greek some of their lyrics. They also created their own songs adding lyrics to the melody. At the theatre club, the students translated the fairy tale into English, dramatized and distributed roles. In the end, all the clubs teamed up composing their works and presented the fairy tale to a beautiful event in the school community and in the local community, opening the doors of the school on Friday 25/5/2018. In addition to teachers of the Pedagogical Team, the teacher of Music, Stavropoulou Sofia and the English Language, Soulioti Danae helped. The exceptional performances of all the children, the special scenery, the colourful costumes and the wonderful music lined up an amazing performance of the fairytale and a beautiful performance with the children of the children themselves, who laid eyes on the young and the great viewers who came to see it!
The pupils of the 5th and 6gh grade are preparing for the presentation of the tale of “Red riding hood” . After talking about the meaning of the tale as well as the messages it brings forward, each club started working on their part. Once the pupils decided on what they would need from the art club, the pupils of that club started working on the costumes and scenery.
At the same time, pupils from the dance-music club are practising on writting the lyrics for a song about the tale of Red riding hood and sing an English song which is going to be part of the final performance.
On April 25th we had the 2nd transnational reading night where pupils from all four schools participated in activities with a common theme… myths from our region. In the first part of the event, all pupils worked on a myth of their choice and created drawings or used other online applications to produce a comic for their myth. On the second part of the reading night, we all “met” on a live eTwinning event and presented our myths and drawings or pictures. All the myths which were presented were then used in order to produce an e-book. Following are some pictures from the event.

The 1st Primary school of Schimatri organized on Wednesday 17 January in the school’s classroom, an exhibition of objects of folklore art titled “The chest of folk art”.
The aim of the exhibition was to bring children into contact with elements of our cultural heritage, to learn about different types of art and more specifically to see utilitarian or decorative objects of an earlier era.
The implementation of the exhibition was divided into two parts. In the first part, both the students of the E and F classes of the school and the teachers collected objects that are examples of folk art and in the second place they placed these objects in the hall of events in a way that reminds a folklore museum room.
The exhibition was open to the public, since not only the students of the two classes but also the whole school and the parents of the children could attend. Class children were divided into two groups. The first group included the A and B classes and the second group the C and D classes. The students of the E and F classes were those responsible for running the exhibition and those who made the presentation of the program.
The presentation included the description of the exhibits by the children, the display of folk art items they had made, embroidery, paper costumes embroidered with threads, painting paintings with colored threads in black cardboard. In addition, technology has been used to display art slides through a computer and view photos.
In the first group, the children read a fairy tale titled “The Mother-Good and the 12 months”, followed by painting by groups and in the second group the children showed the steps of dancing with the help of the song “45 handworkers” they watched the legend for Arta’s bridge.
