Connecting school and society!

Connecting school and society!

This year our förstelärare Anna Blomqvist is focusing on showing students the connection between society and school in different imaginative ways. Due to the pandemic we are not able to visit places outside of school, however we have been able to invite guests (following the FHM guidelines of course). Most recently we have had two music teachers from the Guitar festival talking to our year 4s about music, but earlier this term we have had a land-surveyor, biologist, journalist and a representative from the WWF! Next week the year 5 will walk to the local recycling plant to learn more about where our waste goes and how it is recycled.

Caroline Engvall

Caroline Engvall

This week we had author Caroline Engvall visiting the school and talking to our students and staff about online sexual abuse. We are also sharing a presentation with parents. This is such an important topic as this type of abuse has found a new market with the onset of internet and social media. Caroline has written a number of books in relation to this topic.

Teaching in Focus!

Tom Sherrington

Welcome to a new year at IES Uppsala. Students came back to school yesterday, it was lovely to welcome back all our old students and to meet all our new ones! 

Last week we had the pleasure of having Tom Sherrington visit us from the UK, talking to all staff about teaching and learning. This year we'll be using Mr Sherrington’s material for our professional development program. At IESU our students' learning is our focus!
