    Astrid Lindgren Day

    On Friday 24th November we had a lovely Astrid Lindgren Day throughout the school, the highlight of which was seeing how the year 8 and 9s planned and taught activities to the younger children. There was a quiz, artwork, drama, word searches, film clips, singing songs and dressing up and an assembly. August said he loved everything and Josh said the fruit salad game was good. Overall the younger children said ‘we loved that the year 8s and 9s worked with us.

    Skoljoggen

    Skoljoggen was a great success with pupils from reception through to Year 9 taking part.
    It was a lovely sunny day, some Year 9 pupils provided a musical warm up for the younger children, which was much appreciated, and then they set off around Slingan at 09.30.
    Hemköp kindly sponsored us with fruit so all could enjoy a snack once they returned.

    In the afternoon, the senior classes ran two circuits. It was great to have an event that so much of the school could take part in.

    Many thanks to all who donated towards the charity Clowner utan Gränser. ESG raised 2762 kronor.

    Year 5 Girls win Aesthetic Prize at Chalmers Rädda Ägget Competition!

    Four Year 5 girls won the Aesthetic Prize at the Chalmers Rädda Ägget competition for their stylishly designed egg protector! "With its creative and aesthetically pleasing design, the contribution captured the attention of the jury. The contribution has a consistent theme and a well-made construction in the shape of a blue figure with arms and legs. The egg was kept in a little holder on the front of the figure, which protected from hits caused of the fall. The construction fell down safely with its well-made parachute. The figure was colourful and the design was excellent, for that reason the team is awarded the aesthetic prize."

    The Daily Mile

    Year 3 have been busy recently with their Daily Mile, meaning that they start each day with a run. They have been treating this as a learning exercise for other subjects too and have been keeping a record of their results. Last week they were even featured on Lilla Aktuellt Skola. You can see them in action on SVT Play in last Friday’s programme. Our thanks to Mrs Lindqvist for organizing this and to the other teachers who have been running each morning.

    Competing in Maths, Science and English.

    This year we have enjoyed testing ourselves against other schools in some of the main subject areas. Felix followed Matilda from last year in going to the National finals in the Science Olympics. It is a great feeling that two years running we have young scientists in the national top 20.

    In English our team of Jonathan and Matilda qualified for the regional finals in English as a second language. In English as a native language we filled 7 out of 10 places for the national finals which Nikolai won!

    Finally Michele, Matilda and Felix made it to the regional finals of Maths Olympics.

    A big thank you to Mrs Eklund and Mrs Mattinen for organising these opportunities and to the parents for their support.

    Reading Challenge 2016.

    Years 2 to 7 have been taking part in our biennial Reading Challenge. Having stocked the library with new books the children set about reading the books, writing reviews and winning individual prizes while taking part. In total the students read over 1200 books with the winning year groups being Year 4 and Year 6.
    But we haven’t stopped there as the students have discovered new books, given us their requests and recommendations and we have bought more books.

    So the reading continues!

    A big thank you to Mrs Aranceta, Mrs Laine, PTA and all the parent volunteers for supporting this fantastic learning event. We look forward to 2018.

    Our Week at ESG During Höstlov

    Our Week at ESG During Höstlov


    We have had a fantastic week during Höstlov! Children were in great spirits and were lucky enough to get the chance to go on an outing or two!

    Years One and Three had the opportunity to take a swim at Åbybadet, they splashed in the water and slid down the slides in the “Jungle” area. Years Two and Three tried their hand a driving a go-kart at Majorna Go-Kart! Olivia from Year Three mentioned that they had to wear hair nets under their helmets which was “a little strange but fun anyway!”

    Infants went to Stars and Strips to do a little mini golfing! They walked all the way there with their teachers and had a picnic lunch.

    On Wednesday everyone was at school for Star Wars Day! We started out the day making character masks. After lunch, we made light sabres out of toilet paper rolls and coloured construction paper. Jedi training was held in the gym, and everyone tuned in for a little while to watch Star Wars: Episode Two on the big screen in Bamba with popcorn!

    We had wonderful weather all week, which made for great fun outside on the new playground. On Monday, the children from Reception class went on a nature walk and found an appreciation for the leaves changing colour.

    Thank you to all the children who came to höstlov and to our Fritids teachers for all their hard work!
