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.
Week 46 we had Business week for Y9 at school. The students planned and ran their own business during the week. They baked and sold cookies, made jewellerys, jam and walked dogs to give a few examples.
Karl and Annop in 9B bought and sold Christmas things with a good profit.
The winning team made a website, tomtetrampen.se. It´s a competition where you register as individuals or teams, and the goal is to walk/run the distance from Umeå to Rovaniemi (to Santa) before Christmas. 50% of the fee goes to Rädda barnen.
The gymnasie schools presented their schools.We also had visitors from different companies, a policeman, an entrepreneur and a midwife.
It was a really nice week for the students and we saw a lot of good upcoming entrepreneurs.

Students from IES Umeå's Year 3 class are learning how to tell time while sitting together on their big round red carpet!
Speaking of telling time, my how time flies by when we are having fun! Thank you to all the parents that attended the student, parent, teacher (SPTs) conferences! As we approach the end of our first semester, remember a good diet, lots of exercise and lots of rest will help students perform to the best of their abilities.
