Although Greek Easter is over, it’s not too late to present you the traditional Easter bread, called “tsoureki”. This delicious sweet bread is topped with almonds or sesame seeds, and usually includes a traditional red egg.
In Greece we always serve tsoureki with the Easter meal, but all the children try it with their cup of milk in breakfast. Its ingredients are: flour, yeast, butter, sugar, eggs, mahlepi (spice) or mastic, milk, sesame seeds or sliced almonds, hard boiled dyed red eggs.This bread is traditionally prepared with an essence drawn from the seeds of a Mediterranean spice, called mahlepi, which makes the kitchen smell delicious. Sometimes tsoureki is used as gifts for special occasion, for instance, it can be given as an Easter gift. Written by Teo, A3 class

Pasg Hapus

Fianna, Barker's Lane School, Wales
This is my video of reception class. Jake was finishing his Easter card on the front it says Pasg Hapus. This is Happy Easter in Welsh. Lucky reception had just been on an Easter hunt that is why he was still wearing his Easter hat. Hope you like it.

Howto ... make sandwiches

Here's a sort of instruction-movie how our students have to make sandwiches.
They make these sandwiches every day and we try to let as many students as possible make them.
So, all of them have to follow the instructions on the movie.

Parents cook for us...

Last Friday I had a Parents meeting to talk about students evaluation and behaviour, since the class involve in this project is from a special education, like a vocational course for student with 15 to 17 years old.

I ask the collaboration of a mother to cook the typical Easter cake in Portugal, at the begging she was a bit surprise because we past Easter, but them she told me she will try to do it. So, this morning my student bring the cake and we eat it ;-) (it was very good) and my student make the photos and will produce the movie next Wednesday!!

I was very happy with the parents collaboration for the project! And of course we have the parent permission to publish students work!

Torill, Kristine and Malin have made a short video of Hemne Videregående Skole.

Cyprus Easter
Koulouria and Flaounes

Flaounes are the traditional Easter cheese breads we make in Cyprus. Traditionally they are made on Good Thursday and it's not an easy job. The preparations usually start from the previous day .

These cheese breads are made with a very flavorful bread dough and filled with a cheese called "Pafitiko" made during the Easter period for flaounes. However, this can be substituted by a mixture of other Cypriot cheeses such as halloumi or kaskavalli or the Greek cheeses ladotyri Mytilinis, graviera, kefalograviera and some kefalotyri. Kefalotyri is usually very salty, so don't add too much. We usually make more dough than necessary to make some koulouria, which is a very aromatic bread. In many parts of Cyprus they prefer to make them sweet by adding sugar and raisins, which is an excellent combination of salty and sweet.

Greek Easter wishes
Happy Easter * Kaló Páscha
Happy Easter * Kalí Anastási
Christ is risen Christós Anésti
Truly he is risen Alithós Anésti
Easter Wishes Chroniá Pollá
Pascha is the period before Easter Sunday, so you wish "Kalo Pascha" then, especially when the Holy Week starts. You wish "Kali Anastasi" when Easter Sunday is very close, especially after Holy Thursday and Friday. And of course you wish "Christos Anesti" on Easter Sunday when Christ is already risen.
