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.

Principal Blog - A Merry Farewell For The Holiday.

Dear friends of IES Södertalje.

Merry Christmas and a Happy new year to you all. I will miss the students during the holidays and I am already looking forward to January when we all meet them up again. Yes, I’m very much look forward to my own quality time with my family, but our school is something extra. We have dedicated
excellent teachers and staff, we have great students and we have a happy positive atmosphere at school. We now complete our third term together since we opened the school and from this I am convinced that we are a great school striving for excellence.

Thanks to all of you, parents and friends, for supporting us in this effort of progressing the school towards excellence. From all of us here at school, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Yours sincerely
Johan Öhman and staff of IES Södertälje

Lucia Concerts At IES Södertälje

Lucia Concerts At IES Södertälje

To celebrate Lucia we held two concerts on St Lucy's Day, on 13 December.  

Years 4 and 5 sang several traditional songs,  Year 6 music students were the Luciatåg,  Year 8 singers also performed a traditional song and  the special Lucia orchestra (musicians from years 4, 5 and 6) accompanied the singers. 


Special thanks to all the music students who contributed to both fantastic concerts.  Thanks also to all the staff and school who made the events possible.

The singers and musicians have worked very hard for several weeks practicing for the performance, which was wonderful.  The musicians in particular have shown great dedication learning their own individual parts of the music.
