Cultural Fair at IES Länna

IES Länna cultural fair

International Cultural Fair

The main aim of this project was to create a cultural exhibition of different countries and show it to the entire school community; a proposal that promotes a positive and enriching vision towards the cultural diversity within the institution, and one that can be replicated at a macro level (country).

 

 

In this initiative, students from Spanish, German, English and Arts contributed with a cultural grain to this international fair. Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, Perú, Spain, Mexico, Germany, Austria, U.S.A. and England were leading this project from their corresponding Modern Language subjects, thanks to 7th and 6th graders that showed various cultural aspects of each country such as traditional dishes, dances, games, sports, and also their geography.

 

Why culture is important at IES Länna

To Mr. Ulloa, who ran this project, culture has to do with a set of identity manifestations of a certain sector or social context. It has a lot to do with identity. To express oneself is a need that makes us and helps us to identify ourselves, to differentiate ourselves and is a responsibility towards others, which was one of the aims of this initiative.

 

 

He also explains that the way we perceive things is largely affected by prejudice, attitude and emotions, factors closely related to culture. By labeling something as good or bad, our preconceived ideas play a basic role. When we judge something as easy or difficult, the attitude and level of motivation we have are key. The culture to which we belong determines the structure of our thinking, which influences our perceptions; it gives us an identity and helps us to shape character. The shared values through the community or social group in which we are, give us a sense of belonging. Culture unites us and gives us a sense of personal safety.

 

 

The language we speak, art, literature and heritage that we are proud of, gastronomy, festivals, customs and traditions, together form our culture, become a part of daily life and influence us in many ways . The importance of culture can not be emphasized enough, since it is something that is within us, surrounds us, and is an integral part of our being. It defines the way we treat others and ourselves.

 

 

As a matter of fact, in almost all aspects of life it is important to recognize cultural differences. As a result of the migration of families here in Sweden, we live today in a multicultural society. Those who live around us, those who we live and work with every day, have different roots because they come from other parts of the world, therefore their formation, beliefs and values ​​are different from ours. Knowledge of our own culture and the one that comes from others helps us to accept our differences; studying them broadens our vision of the world, learning to appreciate and respect others. Isn’t that the first value of our school?

Culture is a phenomenon common to all human beings since each of us, by living in society, we learn what is transmitted to us by previous generations and with that knowledge we can eventually contribute to the culture to continue growing and surviving.

“I truly appreciate the team work among all the subjects involved in this project and I really hope that, after this initiative, each of our students at IES Länna, understood the importance of the concept of culture and feels represented by their traditions, ways of thinking and ways of acting that are part of their society or the social group in which they develop their daily life and that give them an idea of ​​belonging”, Mr. Ulloa concluded.

Year 4 Robots

Year 4 Robots

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!

What is the name of the Swede who invented the naming and grouping system of animals and plants? 

Which celebrity's real name is Stephani Joanne Angelina Germanotta? 

What is the national dish of Scotland? 

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!
