IES Eskilstuna's grade 2 students have learned how to act when waiting for the bus, walking to and from the bus stop, how to enter/exit the bus, how to act onboard the bus, how to evacuate in case of emergency, using the safety belt, what happens if you vandalize something on the bus and also regulations regarding "Elevkortet". A diploma was handed out to each student after the "education".
On Friday September 15th 2017, IES Eskilstuna students in Primary School (grade 1-3) and Junior School (grade 4 and 5) were participating in the annual event Skoljoggen, an incentive by Svenska Skolidrottsförbundet to promote exercise and raise awareness/funds for a very worthy charity, SOS Barnbyar (for more information or to make a donation please visit http://www.sos-barnbyar.se). Our students could choose whether to run, jog or walk. Primary School had their activity in Kronskogen and the students at Junior School were in Vilsta, running the 2.5 km track. We were very lucky about the nice weather and all students were eager to do their best! Well done!
Year groups 6, 7, 8 and 9 from Internationella Engelska Skolan i Eskilstuna participated with great enthusiasm in Skoljoggen on September 13th in Vilsta. Students could choose to run, jog or walk a distance of 5 km.
The school jog is organized by the Skolidrottsförbundet and is carried out once a year. We are proud of the great fighting spirit that our students showed! Great work!
On May 18th, IES Eskilstunas annual Science fair took place, focusing on working according to the scientific method. All students in grades 4-5 had worked hard for several weeks with their projects.
In year 4, the theme was to invent something that could give man a lighter weekday and in year 5 the theme was to use physical principles such as the inclined plane and leverage principle to build a Rube-Goldberg machine.
During the day of May 18th, all classes had different activities connected to the physics and engineering subjects and they were also given the opportunity to visit other classes to see their work. Each class had appointed two projects to exhibit their work in the gym hall, which then competed against each other in the struggle to win the big gold trophy.
The day ended with all guardians being invited to look at all the nice projects and the award ceremony in the gym hall.
