Student Work

Work in Social Science Grade 6

Our talented students in Year 6 have been working on a team project about democracy in Social Science, with questions such as why we have democracy in Sweden, what political parties we have and how elections are carried out. The students have created their own parties, made up their own political party names, symbol and a election manifesto. The project ended with each class having debates, presentations of parties and also got a chance to vote in their own elections.

The 26th of September is known as International Language Day where countries around the world celebrate the diverse languages that they speak.

Here at IES Eskilstuna we decided to celebrate the languages that we teach throughout the entire week. During week 38 our classes made decorations which were displayed in our classrooms, hallways and dining hall. We also organized a swedish “tipspromenad”, dance lessons, football and basketball tournaments. In addition to these activities international music was played in the school yard, there was an outside “mellis” and international cuisine in the dining hall.

It was a wonderful week which started with the modern language teachers dressed up as famous people from the culture/language that they teach.

Everybody at our school was invited!
