Testing laser cutting, 3D printing etc. Getting students excited in technology.
Som många av er kan ha uppmärksammat har Skolverket beslutat att neka Internationella Engelska Skolan som företag det finansiella stödet som tidigare utdelats för läxhjälp. Vi vill därför meddela att ni som vårdnadshavare kan känna er helt trygga med att vi naturligtvis kommer att fortsätta erbjuda alla våra elever läxläsningsstöd (support) på skolan såväl som kvällarnas online support. Vi är fast beslutna att ge våra elever allt det stöd de behöver för att kunna utvecklas till den bästa versionen av sig själv. Ni kan lita på oss när vi nu säger att ingenting kommer att förändras för våra elever! Alla elever har rätt till den stöttning just de behöver så att de kan nå deras verkliga potential.
We are often asked if we teach Sciences in English. The answer is BILINGUALISM. We want our students to master both English and Swedish as we believe that having a solid base in both languages will help them in the future. We also believe, and this has been proven many times in studies, that young learners have the ability to learn multiple languages while not having a negative impact on the retention of the actual subject.
To help them reach this level of competency we always strive to offer our lessons, in Sciences for example, in a bilingual way. Key terms are given in both English and Swedish. Explanations are also given in both language. Homework are translated as well as tests. Students are encouraged to try to answer in English but are allowed to answer in Swedish. Our teachers also use various methods in the classroom to help the students understand the key terms in both languages. Asking a friend to explain, playing a game with the Swedish terms etc. are all methods that we use to ensure that our students are exposed to both languages.
Our 6A boys WON!! Final game was very intense and they won 10-8. They played great together and there was huge improvement between games for many players. Player of the game went to Charlie but there were lots of players who had star moments.
Our 6C girls had a great start and crushed their first game. Tied their second and lost in the quarter but they had a great attitude and wonderful team atmosphere.
Well Done Ladies
