Dear Parents and Guardians of Internationella Engelska Skolan Uppsala,
We have had an excellent start to this academic year, we have introduced the year 4 students to of our house system, which has fostered even stronger unity and pride for Internationella Engelska Skolan Uppsala among students. We have continued to develop our growth mindset approach more and more in our classrooms and have made teaching and learning in school more visible to the students. The visibility of learning has been developed through introducing success criteria in lessons using the first-person form such as: "I can read and understand varied texts in English”. This is done to emphasise to students that learning starts and ends with them as the focal point and we have already seen positive impact of this initiative. This year we are also focusing our professional development of the whole school on Growth Mindset language and how we can build resilience and persistence in students´learning.
