Getting to know our muscles system
In grade 3, learners are practicing their writing skills daily! This term we are focusing on non fiction and learners are working on their informational text. As part of the English subject, each grade is assigned a continent in which learners and teachers work together to gather information regarding geographical, cultural and statistical facts. Grade 3 is working on the continent of America!
Learners are researching information regarding a country of their choice, taking notes and using them to create an informational text about this country that will go in a tourist magazine!
IPC Goals or purpose of activity.
-We are currently working on the “Gateways to the world” IPC unit, a unit that is focused on geography, climate zones, ways of transportation and many more! With this project, learners combine the knowledge they gathered regarding those topics, and need to apply it into a more concrete context, there writing, while practicing their english skills at the same time!
Take a glimpse of the whole process!
In grade 8 we have been working with the IMYC Big Idea “Our sense of self, and that of others, is continually developing throgh our different interactions and impacts on how we exist in the world”
In English learners had to create a flag of their own identity representing their own “sense of self”.
Eleverna i klass 9 har arbetat ambitiöst och kreativt med ett arbete som är kopplat till kunskapskraven i svenska, bild och musik. Arbetet i svenska och bild är avslutat, det som återstår är att lägga till musiken och sedan redovisa arbetet. De har skrivit dikter under temat “Något som berör”. Dikterna har de sedan använt sig av när de tagit bilder, för att kunna uttrycka det som dikten handlar om. Vi som undervisar i svenska och bild är mycket imponerade och glada över det som eleverna har presterat. Så här kan det se ut!
This term the grade 5s have been reading the Ronald Dale classic Charlie and Chocolate Factory!
For their IPC Exit Point, the class combined most of their learning. Combining English, geometry, creativity and home economics, the students designed and created a machine that would fit right in to Willy Wonka’s factory. They also had to create a new, exciting candy to go with it!
Educational, creative and tasty!
The learners in grade 2 have worked on a collaboration project connecting many subjects into one project. The learners have used a B-M-E approach. The B is the research at the beginning, M is the middle where questions and scripts are formed, and E is the end where the learners filmed.
(The learners did the project in Swedish, English, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences)

Futuraskolan International Rådan’s grade 5 students have been working on the IPC unit Go with the Flow, which has to do with all things water!
The students have been learning about different land bodies and what water bodies can be found around them.
Futuraskolan International Rådan’s I Love Reading to the Moon and Back challenge made great gains during the holidays.
So far the students have read an amazing 125 000 pages!
The students in grades 4, 5 and 6 read so many pages over the holidays that the teachers are still counting the pages, listening to presentations and reading book reviews!
Well done, everyone!
Futuraskolan International Rådan’s Safety Team noticed that the elevator didn’t have any labels to indicate which classes are on which floor.
The Safety Team very correctly pointed out that for substitutes, new staff, parents and even emergency services, knowing which floor to go to is incredibly important.
Today, Safety Team member Tim created floor labels during his lunch break that will help everyone in the building.
Here is a glimpse of the learning in action that takes place throughout Futuraskolan Rådan.
