IES Linköping has once again participated in The Big Challenge - a competition organized in Europe for students who do not have English as their native language. This year our students in grades 5-9 had outstanding results.
Students participating in The Big Challenge studied grammar, understanding, geography, history and social science. The students acquired knowledge of all the English-speaking countries.
Congratulations to the winners and all the participants!
During the spring term 6D has studied Hinduism and Buddhism in their Religion Class. When time came for assessment they choose themselves how they wanted to be assessed (student democracy in action) and around half of them choose to do a webpage.
Harry Potter Week was a week where libraries around the world celebrate JK Rowling and her book series. This year the theme was Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We had a quiz and a colouring competition in the library for students to enter and win cinema tickets.
We held a movie night in the Aula on 1 February, where we showed the film of 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'. The students loved it. They were allowed to bring in snacks and spend an afternoon in Rowling's exciting world of wizards and magic.
We were inspired by Bloomsbury Publishers, who promote Harry Potter Week once a year. Since the books are so popular, we decided to let our students enjoy immersing themselves in her books.
It was a very successful week. We had many entries for the competitions, especially the younger years who were very excited to colour and get creative for the competition.
This Spring term, year 9 were given a project with the following brief; 'to research, design and create a container or shelf'. This broad instruction gave the students free reign to flex their creativity. The end product had to be practical and useful whilst showing an eye for artistic design. Here are some examples of the finished products, which will indeed be put to good use in their new home.
In textiles, students have been busy creating cushion covers, embroidery, envelopes and much, much more. All with the help and expertise of our textiles teacher Ms. Isaksson. Take a look below at some of the work from year 4, 5 and 7.
