We always enjoy showing our school to families who would like their children to attend, and look forward to the day when we are able to do so again.

If you would have liked to see the school, and have questions about what life is like at IES Umeå, then during the pandemic we are offering digital meetings, to help you make this important decision about your child's education.

Höstens läsprojekt

Höstens läsprojekt

Under höstterminen har flera årskurser arbetat med läsprojekt med viktiga teman. Åk 5 har jobbat med boken Den osynliga flickan skriven av Deborah Ellis. Boken  utspelar sig under talibanregimen och handlar om en afghansk flicka  som tvingas klä ut sig till pojke för att  familjen ska överleva då pappan fängslas. Under bokprojektet diskuteras många viktiga frågor som jämställdhet, hur vi behandlar varandra och hur det är att leva i ett land drabbat av krig.

 

I åk 9 har vi läst När hundarna kommer av Jessica Schiefauer. I boksamtalen har det bl.a. diskuterats hur vi hanterar ensamhet, kärlek, relationer, föräldraskap och fördomar.

Student Work

Creating shoes

IESUmeå’s Year 8 students have been hard at work creating shoes with a 5cm heel  that can withstand their weight, and can survive a walk around the classroom. We learned about the different forces exerted on shoes while walking, and have been discussing solid and stable constructions. The students had to think about different elements of design, and how to best support weight using simple materials from school. They did a fantastic job combining both engineering and creativity!
