Some more traditional Turkish food
Soup made with tarhana
Mix eggs,baking powder and salt in a quick way. Add two glass of water and flour to mixture and mix. Leave the mixture for ten minutes. Put oil in your frying case to cover the iron mold. The oil should be fried thoroughly. Dunk the iron mold into the dough. Hot iron mold will stick to the dough, and it should be waited in the oil for a few minutes. İt shouldn‟t be moved because the form of the dough becomes bad if you move it before it becomes hard. When the dough becomes hard in the oil it will easily separate from the iron mold. Fry the two parts of the dough in the oil. Place the fried dough on a plate. Repeat this procedure with the other parts of the dough. Pour the sherbet on the flour after this work. It is ready to serve.
Dough is formed with a particular iron. It is peculiar to ULUBEY. It is a different dessert with wonderful taste. The recipe is below. The iron for dessert is made in Ulubey.

Traditional Food We have been talking about traditional food in Year One classes. As we have so many nationalities, traditional food can mean many things, for example: Curry, jerk chicken, fried rice or fish and chips. Curry is spicy, jerk chicken is peppery, fried rice is munchy and fish and chips are delicious covered in salt and vinegar.
We would like to know what kind of food you eat in your country.? What does it taste like? Is it as yummy as our fish and chips? Bluebell and Marigold Class, Carpenters Primary School.

Parma: Ham and Cheese
Our most famous food specialties are Parma ham and Parmesan cheese. Parma ham is an uncooked allnatural ham, only salt is added, dried and cured in the hills south of Parma for 12 to 30 months. First mention of Parma ham is in the Roman Age, now it has its PDO. Thinly sliced, Parma ham is often served as antipasto, with bread or grissini, but it is served with vegetables and salad too. In the summer we eat it with cantaloupe, or with mozzarella cheese and tomatoes. Parma ham is in sandwiches or
croissants and quite often it is a pizza topping. Sometimes it is used in sauces for pasta, to stuff meat or in other meat recipes. Parmesan cheese is made from cow‟s milk, 550 liters for a wheel; cows are fed on grass and hay only. Wheels weight 39 kg and are aged from 1 to 3 years before eating. Parmesan cheese has its PDO, Protected Designation of Origin. We grate Parmesan cheese on pasta, we have it in our soup and risotto, but it is good with vegetables, jams or honey, with some drops of balsamic vinegar, dried fruit and

nuts or fresh fruit. It is an ingredient of cappelletti, small round stuffed pastas in beef broth, and tortelli d’erbetta, small pasta envelopes with a filling of parmesan cheese, ricotta and herbs. Sometimes we eat it in
chunks and we cut it with its proper knife to save the cheese granularity.

Czech Cuisine Traditional food Czech cuisine has developed over hundreds of years and has been influenced by Austrian and Hungarian cuisines and it has also influenced the cuisines of its neighbouring countries in return. Czech national cuisine is based on ingredients that can be grown domestically, i.e. cereals, leguminous plants and potatoes, which are usually served with pork, beef or poultry, or with freshwater fish.
BREAKFAST The classical breakfast consists of white bread rolls or sliced bread, although whole-
have become popular recently.
The bread is mostly served with ham or salami. Other options include cheese or jamSome people also like to eat something sweet for breakfast, such as doughnuts, pastry or bisquits.We mostly drink tea with sugar or honey and lemon for breakfast. LUNCH
Adults often have lunch in restaurant, many of which offer lunch menus for discount prices. School children have their lunch at school. Lunch usually consists of soup, a main course and sometimes a small dessert or some fruit or vegetable salad. Czech cuisine offers countless soup varieties: Beef broth with noodles and liver dumplings, potato soup, garlic soup, goulash soup, spring vegetable soup,“kulajda“ [khulaida] with mushrooms or tomato soup are the most popular options. The basis of meals is usually meat - pork, beef, poultry, venison or freshwater fish. Meat is prepared in various ways, either fried, stewed or roasted, and it is always served with a side dish such as potatoes, rice or potato dumplings.
Sauces are phenomenal in Czech cuisine. The most popular are tomato sauce usually served with beef or smoked meat and dill sauce served with hard boiled eggs. Further typical example of favourite Czech dishes is roast pork with dumplings and cabbage (colloquially vepřo-knedlo-zelo) which is considered the most popular Czech dish. Potato dumplings is also very popular and very delicious.Beef sirloin in cream sauce, served with potato dumplings is also very popular and very delicious. Other popular dishes that can also be served on special occasions include meat goulash or potato salad with pork schnitzel. If you replace the schnitzel with carp, you will have the traditional Czech Christmas dinner. Potatoes represent an important component of our cuisine. For example, potato pancakes (bramboráky [brambora:kɪ]) are another typical Czech dish.
D I N N E R Some families prefer a light dish, another like a heavy dinn e r wit h a structure similar to lunch, Many families occasionally go to a restaurant to sit and chat with family members or friends outside the home.Sweet Fruit
dumplings (ovocné knedlíky [ovotstnɛ: knɛdlɪ:kɪ]) are mostly made using plums or
Potato Pancakes Bramborák [brΛmborΛ:k] This recipe makes large, thin potato pancakes that are crispy and nicely flavored with garlic. Potato Pancakes are served both with meals and as a snack.
Ingredients: 4 large potatoes 1/4 cup milk 1 clove garlic 1 egg 4 heaping tablespoons flour Salt Pinch of pepper 4 tablespoons vegetable oil Instructions:
apricots. Whole fruit are coated with potato or curd dough and boiled, then served with butter, sugar and sometimes milled poppyseed or quark.. They are usually eaten as a main dish. Koláče [kola:tʃɛ] is a type of yeast pastry consisting of fillings ranging from fruits to cheeses or poppyseed on doughnut.
[smΛӡΛ:k]) is maybe the less noble, but the most contemporary of Czech national dishes. A slice of cheese (usually Eidam or Hermelín) about 1 cm thick (or whole Hermelín) is coated in breadcrumbs like Wiener schnitzel and fried either on a pan or in deep fryer, and often topped with tartar sauce (tatarka [tΛtΛrkΛ] in Czech).
Buchty [ Ӽtɪ] are a kind of pastry similar to koláče, the same filling is wrapped in piece of dough and baked.
Niva is a blue cheese, similar to roquefort originally made in the town of Prostějov in the Haná district.

1. Peel potatoes and grate with a grater. 2. Heat milk until hot (be careful not to burn it).
3. Squeeze all liquid out of the potatoes with your hands and place them in a large bowl. 4. Immediately add the hot milk to the potatoes and mix until combined. This prevents them from turning brown. 5. Finely mince the garlic or put through press and add to bowl. 6. Add the egg, flour, pepper and salt. Stir until all ingredients are combined. The consistency
should be more like a thick batter than a dough. Add more milk if it is too thick, or more flour if it is too thin. 7. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet . 8. For each pancake, pour a ladle full of potato mixture into skillet and spread out until it is about 1cm (1/2 inch) thick and 18cms (7 inches) in diameter, just to fit the skilllet. 9. Cook on each side, turning only once, until golden brown. 10. Drain on paper towels. Makes 4 potato pancakes

GALATASARAY A WONDERFUL TURKISH TEAM Galatasaray Sports Club takes the characteristic of its being pioneer in the Turkish sports history from the Galatasaray Lycee, from which it was born and which is also a pioneer by its own. The strong connection between the school and the club is an undeniable reality and a source of pride. The school was founded in 1482 by II. Beyazit in order to educate statesmen of the future. It took its name from the place it was established and called "Galata Place" (Galata Sarayi). The school became a modern lycee in 1 September 1868 during the reign of Sultan Abdulaziz. With the restructuring of the school, the first sportive activities started in its real meaning and Monsieur Curel began to give Physical Education classes in the lycee. These steps were revolutionary. While making the students to work with modern equipments, Curel also organized an Exercise Festival in Kagithane. The year was 1870. At the end of the festival, successful sportsmen got various awards and medals and "rice meal with lamb" were given to the students. This was the start of a tradition in later years. This was the start of a tradition in later year First ever Turkish Football Team (1905) First and only Turkish Team to win a major European Cup (UEFA Cup 2000) Record-holding number of consecutive League titles (4 times)Record number of championships with a Turkish Trainer (9 times)
Record number of goals in Turkish League.History
Foreign physical education teachers after Curel (such as M. Moiroux, Signor Martinetti, Stangali) attached importance to different branches (swimming, rowing, gymnastics with tools) as well as gymnastics and athleticism and thus started other new branches in Turkey. Soon these attempts breeds its fruits and, as well as Faik ĂœstĂźnidman who made his name written down Turkish sports, Commander Mazhar Kazanci, Abdurrahman and Ahmet Robenson brothers took responsibility in Galatasaray Lycee and made the students interested in sports like scouting, tennis, hockey. With the initiative of especially Ustunidman, the students got acquainted with football. But this was a different type of football, which resembled the blinds' row and had no rules. However, football once entered Galatasaray Lycee and got a big outbreak. .

Volley for Year4 – by Class 4A Year 4 is practicing volley this year; Class 4A love sport: everyone plays football and basket or goes to swimming class, so they are ready for a new sport. PE instructor for the whole school year is Roberta. Under her instructions, children are getting ready to play- and hopefully win- in the volley tournament against the other four classes of Year4 next May. First of all, they trained all the winter with specific games: exercises against the wall and the wall bars, throwing and catch-
ing the ball, bouncing etc. Then children played games involving jumps, handstand, crawling, walking and running, as well as keeping by the court lines or complete immobility. Sometimes, stretching exercises are included too. All these games are played by two teams and everyone has his or her favourite. After Christmas holidays, children are now playing volley in short matches, doing his and her best to score, training, learning rules and most important, how to play together in a team: nobody wins or looses alone.

There was also a four lap race that was run by two boys and two girls. Due to cheering from teachers and team mates, the running was a great success and Carpenters school gained a lot of points. It was said to be a great experience by those who watched and took part in the competition. One of the coaches (Mr R. Saunders) mentioned that it was the best performance in years. As a result, the participantsâ€&#x; hard work paid off when the overall sores were announced and Carpenters school came second and received silver medals. As a sign of sportsmanship, the children shook hands with the opposition. Everyone from school left happy at the contribution they had made for the team.

Werder Bremen against 1FC CologWhen we found out, that we were part of the group chosen to come and see the Werder Bremen match against Cologne we were very happy. On our way to the “Weserstation” (football stadium) at around 3 pm we were very excited. We drove about 1.5 hours by bus and we had a lot of fun with our friends during the ride. Already at the beginning of the first halftime Diego shot the first goal. After a goal against Bremen, Rosenberg scored another goal,

The bus had to leave at 7.30 pm. On our way back we were all in high spirits. I t was all in all an exciting, wonderful day and we thank our teachers Mr. Meyer, Mr. Ahning, Mr. Weiß and Mr. Smidt that they made the effort to come along with us to the Weser Station.

Liverpool 3 vs. 0 Bristol (Fantasy Football match Hello, my name is Ally Wadud, and I went to Anfield to report on Liverpool versus Bristol. Firstly, Torres headed the ball to Gerrard who passed to Alonso and shot and scored. Soon it was half time and this lasted for 10 minutes, then half time was over. After half time it still wasn’t going well for Bristol. Liverpool just missed a big chance but it didn’t take long for Liverpool to score another goal. Gerrard headed and scored. The crowd went wild! Still no score for Bristol. This didn’t look good for Bristol. Liverpool were on the ball again and Gerrard passed to Torres and Torres passed back again to Gerrard. Gerrard shot from 25 metres and scored a spectacular goal. Then there was only 20 minutes until full time. So Bristol went for the ball and Michel from Bristol was going for goal. He shot but missed. But it was well off target.
So then it was a goal kick and Hazy the Bristol striker shot from 10 metres but it was way out of the pitch. This resulted in a throw-in and Michel threw it to Troy. But he got tackled by Robbie Keene and Robby passed to Gerrard. He shot and scored the last goal for Liverpool. The Bristol goalkeeper had no chance to save it. Liverpool had won the game and that was it for Bristol. Thanks for reading this report. Until next time, I am Ally Wadud. (Ally Wadud, Carpenters Primary School)
