Åk 4 besöker Vikingaliv

Åk 4 har besökt muséet Vikingaliv där vi har fått lära oss mer om vikingatiden, hur de levde, vad de åt och vart de reste. Vi fick veta en massa spännande saker från guiderna, testa på att göra eget yllegarn, titta och känna på olika föremål som kammar och mynt och smaka på torkad fisk. 

4D ställde upp sig för fotografering framför den nygjorda runstenen utanför Vikingaliv innan vårt besök. Det tog över 1000 timmar under ca 1 1/2 år för runristaren Kalle att göra stenen färdig!

 

Attila från 4C testar en vikingahjälm och har tagit plats i högsätet - den plats där vikingahövdingen satt.

Erik från 4C hälsar på DNA-vikingen Leifur. Leifur har återskapats med modern DNA-teknik och man har t o m kunnat ta reda på vilken hår- och ögonfärg han hade!

Kristendomen i åk 4

I åk 4 har vi arbetat med kristendomen och en av uppgifterna vi arbetat med var att skapa en serie som har med Jesus liv att göra. Eleverna har läst olika berättelser och sedan gjort dessa härliga seriestrippar! En del har valt att följa berättelsen helt medan andra har gjort en mer "modern" variant av sin berättelse. Här kommer ett litet urval av alla de fina serierna!

Theme Week projects

During Theme Week, 18 different projects were held at the school and all groups were mixed year levels between YL 4-7. The students worked together and spent time together in their groups during lunches and breaks throughout the week. Friday was the big day when guardians were invited to the school to see the projects their children have been working on all week. It was very appreciated and the students were very proud of their work and of what they had learned.

See below for some glimpses from Theme week...

Conlangs- Constructed Language

In Conlangs ( Constructed Language) the students developed their own languages and also translated a short story in their language.

Students are listening to the different sounds humans use for speech in order to pick which ones they want to use in their language.

The student is creating vocabulary based on a set list of words from the story they will translate.

Students are binding and and writing in the books that will tell a story in their language

 

Photography

During the first days of theme week the Photography group was out and about at museums, photo exhibitions for inspiration. The group also went on field trips to the city, Gamla Stan and Skansen to take pictures. The students choose their favorite picture to mount for the exhibition at school.

     

 

Recycled Totem pole

In this group the students made their own totem heads out of recycled material. They went to Etnografiska to get inspiration and to learn about the history of totem poles.

             

 

The colorful totem pole the students made during Theme week, placed on floor 5 in the Light Garden.

 

Tie Dye

In Tie Dye the students learned how experiment with color, create shades of color and designs. They put these designs on T-shirts and other pieces of cloth they wanted to tie dye.

    

     

 

 

Pool Tournament in the School Café

During week 10 and 11 the cafeteria organized a pool tournament, calling upon students to sign up, play the best in the school and take home the trophy. What a tournament it was!

In total 28 students from different year levels and classes signed up to compete.

During the two weeks the teams played one another, advancing in the tournament and gaining more and more confidence. By the end of week 11 we had two teams playing in the final with a crowd of people cheering them on. After an intensive and nail biting game we finally had a winning team!

 

 

Congratulations to Carl Magnus 7C and Oscar 7D!
