Grade 8’s art

The learners of year 8 have been working with  pattern, colour and material sketches in craft and with illustration with figures in Art.

Grade 8 – Entrepreneurship Project

In week 42 students from Year 8 travelled to KTH university and the Mentorspace building in their Kista campus. The Mentorspace is an area within KTH where students are able to work and create projects in a space with donated tools and resources to use creatively. During the day there students from Rådan worked alongside university students and lecturers learning plenty of skills such as soldering, 3D printing and programming. 

The reasoning behind this day was to develop many of the skills needed for their entrepreneurship project. Students are going to create a technology project which uses the knowledge they have gained from programming and electronics to create a product that can help reach part of the UN sustainability goals. 

The students will be working on building their products in technology lessons in November and December, with the aim to have a final product by the end of the term. There will be two more visits to Mentorspace as we work through this term – with students using the facilities and knowledge available to help make their products a reality

Grade 8 – IMYC Identity

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”.

 

IPC and IMYC 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.

Courage and Community

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
