every year at the beginning of September, when the school starts they have a special local festival in Zvolen. The name of this event is Autumn Traditional Folk Markets. People celebrate coming of autumn by that. Markets are usually at the main square.
People sell traditional Slovak products such as handmade products of wood, string or wicker there.
There is so much deliciously smelling food too.
The folk markets are usually crowded by people who enjoy the special atmosphere. During the time of the folk markets, there are a lot of Slovak drama groups and music bands performing on the stage. For example, Iné kafé, Desmod, or Horkýže slíže. In the picture, you can see my very famous Teddy´s band 🙂
Hello, Tedd is here! I´m going to show you what a boy and 2 girls aged 11 have written and drawn to me when I was curious about their typical school days:
I wake up at six o´clock. Before I go to school my mum makes sure that I have a healthy breakfast and brush my teeth. Our schol starts at quarter to eight. The most time of the week we have six lessons a day. My favourite subjects are History, Maths, Geography and English, of course. When our school ends we have lunch in the school canteen. After school I have the guitar, art and tennis lessons. I usually do my homework before our family dinner. I don´t really have much time to hang out with friends over the week. That´s why we catch up at the weekends.
All the best
I get up at quarter to six. I don´t have a shower in the morning, but after breakfast I brush my teeth. I put on my clothes.
I walk to school at ten past seven with my friends. Lesson starts at quarter to eight. We finish school at quarter past one and then we have school lunch. I go home at quarter to two.
When I come home, I do my homework. On Tuesday and Friday I have piano lessons in the afternoon. And on Monday, Wednesday and Friday I go to the dance class.
In the evening I go outside with my friends or I read a book. I have dinner at eight o´clock. After dinner I have a shower and then I brush my teeth. I go to my bed at nine o´clock.
Hugs and kisses
Hello from Zvolen!
I hope that you are doing well my friends. What about me? Don´t worry, I am fine 🙂
Kids in Zvolen normally don´t learn during their first September days at school. Instead of sitting at school, they do a lot of cool activities…
For example, I have learnt how to do basic first aid. Just in case…And I really enjoyed playing with the kids in our natural gym 🙂
