This Wednesday, as part of the I Love Reading to the Moon and Book challenge, Futuraskolan International Rådan grades 4, 5, 6B and 6R visited Sollentuna Library.
The students had the opportunity to find books that they could choose for the reading challenge. Many students asked the librarians for help with specific topics that ranged from zombies, fantasy novels, football biographies, World War II autobiographies, vegan health and chemistry. Rådan students sure do have a wide range of interests!
Many student got new library cards and were thrilled to be able to check out their own books.
Futuraskolan International Rådan’s library has books displays this months which reflect the International Primary Years and Middle Years Curriculum themes that Rådan students are working with.
These themes are digital gamers, earth and space, beliefs, the human brain and chemistry, creativity, curiosity, and entrepreneurship.
The books on display cover a wide range of possibilities in each of these areas and include works of fiction and non-fiction in both Swedish and English.
For our IMYC themes Courage and Community the students in grade 7 and 8 worked in Art with illustrations, lines and symbols. We got inspiration for two courageous artists and swedish illustrators. The exhibition is on our floor
