IES Södertälje Participates In Schackfyran 2019

IES Södertälje Participates In Schackfyran 2019

This week all of Year 4 took part in Schackfyran.

Our students joined 1500 other students from around the Stockholm area in Globen Annex and played 4 games of chess each. 

For each game the students collected points towards their class team and competed against all the other schools that were present. 

We were really proud not only of the chess skills shown on the day by our students but also by the great sportsmanship and behaviour they all showed.  Some of our students even managed to win all 4 of their games, a great achievement. 

Well done to you all for taking part.

Snow Fun At IES Södertälje

Snow Fun At IES Södertälje

With the huge amount of snow we are having, our grade 4's found a fun way to pass their break time. 

During their break time and with the assistance of Mr Brace, our grade 4's built an impressive Igloo.

Fun was had by all and great team work from all our students involved.  


Student Work

!!Photo Special!! - Year 5 Art Project

!!Photo Special!! - Year 5 Art Project

Last term the Year 5 students designed and made a 3D model in plastacina.


This was part of a mythical story art project.

The students had to come up with the background of the monster: Where they are from? what they did? As well as a detailed description, which they then created in 3D form.


We think the students did amazing work and we hope you enjoy some of the work displayed in this post.
