Making Art with what you have around you

Making Art with what you have around you

7B had remote lessons, and distance education from home in January, so we did an unconventional materials project. They had to make Art with whatever they had on hand at home. Here are some of their results. They are quite fun!

IES Älvsjo PTA - Sock Drive

IES Älvsjo PTA - Sock Drive

"Get that Christmas spirit going! Doing it once is an event. Do it twice, and it becomes a tradition!"

Last year, the PTA initiated a charity project that encouraged families at IES Älvsjö to donate socks, that were then given to Stockholms Stadsmission – a sock drive.

This year the PTA made fliers, and new socks were handed in to the Reception office at IES Älvsjö, 7-17 December. Stockholm Stadsmission will then distribute these donations to people in need.

A big thank you to the IES Älvsjö PTA​, and everyone that contributed!

Playback Theatre at IES Älvsjö

Playback Theatre at IES Älvsjö

During spring 2020 IES Älvsjö carried out a Skapande skola (Creative school) project in collaboration with Teater X (www.teaterx.se). In this project, our year 6 students were invited to reflect on the topic of social media. They visited a theatre performance and took part in workshops. The project was highly appreciated. 

Thanks to a collaboration between IES Älvsjö and and Linda Tervo from Teater X, students that wanted to explore more of playback theatre were able to join an afternoon course that started in October 2020.  

During spring 2021 this year's 6-graders will take part in the same project (of course carried out in a Corona safe way).

I början av våren 2020 hade IES Älvsjö ett Skapande Skola-projekt tillsammans med Teater X (www.teaterx.se). Under detta projekt fick eleverna i åk 6, genom föreställningar och workshops i playbackteater, möjlighet att fördjupa sig i frågan “Vad händer på nätet?”. Projektet var väldigt uppskattat, och under hösten har skolan erbjudit möjligheten för de elever som nu går i sjuan att fortsätta utveckla sina playback-färdigheter!

I en eftermiddagskurs med Linda Tervo från Teater X får eleverna öva på att tala och gestalta inför andra, samt utveckla ledarskap, aktivt empatiskt lyssnande, kreativitet, improvisations- och initiativförmåga. Mycket uppskattat!

Våren 2021 räknar vi med att på ett coronasäkert sätt kunna erbjuda även detta läsårs åk 6 samma fina upplevelse.
