November Reading Month

November Reading Month

Welcome to IESE November Reading Month! This month we are focussing on getting our students reading more books, in any language! We are encouraging them to cosy up with a book at home to brighten up these long dark evenings. Our school library is also a very cosy place to read during your breaks during the school day. Students who record how much they read during the month can win house points and prizes!

Grade 5 Samba

Grade 5 Samba

In Grade 5 we have been learning to play Samba music . The students have been taking instructions from a conductor, singing, dancing and playing different rhythms. We have also been learning the song “We are one” from the 2014 Football World Cup in Brazil. 

Stranger Reads

Stranger Reads

Stranger Reads is a photographic competition where students take a picture of themselves reading a book while wearing a strange outfit to win house points and special prizes. Year 7 had strong entries this term as the competition coincides with their dramatic performances of myths. The winner will be announced in Week 45. Some of the best entries so far are pictured. Write Club - creative writing sessions run by the English Department - will commence in Week 45 so any budding JK Rowlings out there should come along in order to hone their wordsmithery.

Short Stories

Short Stories

Students in year 6, 7 and 9 have just finished up writing short stories in Swedish. 

Together we achieve more! - Clash of the classes

Together we achieve more! - Clash of the classes

Physical activity provides an opportunity to build character, use teamwork, and foster a sense of belonging in schools. Physical education is important not only for an individual student's health and well-being, but also for the development of a strong and healthy school community. That's why our Junior school PE teacher started this year off with a great selection of team building activities  

~September 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, September the first and second, IESE had clash of the classes in year 4 and 5.  It was done in the field right outside the school. Clash of the classes had lots of fun activities such as blindfold parkour and capture the flag. The students got better at teamwork and friendship while doing the activities. The students thought it was fun because of the teamwork and the class bonded more. 

 

Yet another fun thing the students enjoyed was to wear their class colors. At the end of the activities the students got to make their class number and letter (EX. 5D) with their bodies.
