Year 4 students have created their very own Robots straight from their imagination! From learning basic language skills to writing stories, the students have come a long way. They have each produced an amazing creative writing piece in English class.
Each robot has a number of parts and each part has a specific purpose; from completing homework to saving the earth! Some Robots have 8-10 parts that serve various purposes, and others perform a single task.
The work is displayed for a few more weeks in each year 4 classroom, with a drawing of each robot for you to enjoy.
I am proud of the students who continue to excel at IES Länna!

If you answered Carl von Linné, Lady Gaga, and haggis, you would have done well in our school's recent trivia competition! This week, our student council hosted a student vs. staff trivia competition where teams competed against each other in the categories of Sweden, games and pop culture, Europe, general knowledge, and flags. Both teams did a great job with staff earning 23 points, and students not far behind with 20 points. Nice work to everyone who participated in, and hosted the event!
During Ms. Spences-Lee's year 5 choice class, titled "What's Trending?", students have the chance to show, discuss, and participate in what is actually trending. This Friday, students had the opportunity to choose a challenge to record and share. There were several different challenges ranging from environmental to straight up silly - like this one!
At IES Länna, the practice of being kind is made a priority. While studying art of embroidery, Year 6 students researched and chose a quote revolving around the theme of kindness and helping spread its ideology throughout the school. Each student chose a quote that resonated with them and depict a positive message for our school. Students were exposed to new materials including an embroidery hoop, embroidery thread, and a loose knit canvas. Students learned and mastered many embroidery stitches including the backstitch, running stitch and satin stitch to complete their designs.
In this project, Year 5 students explored and studied examples of ceramic tiles that cover facades of buildings in the streets of Lisbon, Portugal. We spoke about the histories of the city, including the destructive earthquake that occured in 1755. We discussed how the the designs, patterns and colors of the tiles helped rebuild the city’s confidence after the disastrous event. Each student designed a tile that, if given the chance, they would cover a building with. We used air dry clay to form the tile squares and acrylic paint to achieve their designs.
