Skrivartävling!

Skrivartävling!

At the Christmas Assembly we announced the winner of the IES Uppsala writing competition! During the Autumn term Ms Kullberg has organised a competition on the theme “Att komma undan” with the author Nina Ivarsson as part of the jury. Many great stories were handed in and the winner was... Stella in 6A! Congratulations!

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.

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.
