Our Year 7 student Adam was recently awarded ‘Player of the Year’ for New Boys by Högsbo Basket. A big congratulations to Adam on his wonderful achievement!
Congratulations to Linus in Reception who spotted a mistake in his dinosaur book. The book said that in dinosaur times the temperature was 10x more than it is now when it should have said the temperature was ten degrees higher. Linus mother wrote to the Swedish publisher who agreed that this was a mistake and said that the English publication was also wrong. The mistake will be corrected in future editions of the book.
Ahmed Berhan from the Swedish children’s show ‘Med Ahmed i Medeltiden’ (also seen in SVT humor and Sveriges Radio) sent our Year 4 students a warm greeting. Both classes have been watching the educational program during their history lessons and as a reward for the students hard work the teacher surprised them with a recorded greeting from Ahmed.
With over 1500 books read and reviewed in Years 2 to 7 we are sure that many students have improved their reading fluency, comprehension, and stamina in English and Swedish.

But well done to all for taking part of the challenge as improving our reading is the real win.
