"International Language Competition 2019" (formerly known as Språkolympiden)

One more year, IES Year 9 Nacka language students are competing in the "International Language Competition 2019" (formerly known as Språkolympiden) in English, Swedish and French/Spanish. 

Our students will challenge themselves putting to the test their linguistic and cultural skills against other schools in the Stockholm region. They will face questions about grammar, history, geography and culture among other surprises.

We wish them good luck, lycka till, buena suerte and bonne chance!

Student queue information

The student queue for those children born in 2018 is now open for applications!

We get a lot of questions about skolval this time of the year - Since IES Nacka is a free school - friskola, the application process works differently and you can't select IES Nacka in your skolval until you have a confirmed placement from us. This however you can change throughout the schoolyear if relevant at later point this term.

If you have questions about this, please contact your local council (er lokala utbildningsenhet per komun).

Best regards,

Admissions, IES Nacka

Week 3 Ping-Pong Tournament!

Week 3 Ping-Pong Tournament!

Week 3’s table tennis tournament was an exciting week with 16 players participating in the tournament. Many close games between great players but at the end of the day there could only be one winner. Erik from 5A won the tournament after a great match played against Fred in 4C.

Other students came down to watch the games and support their friends. By the end of the week we had even more students wanting to enter the table tennis competition. It indeed seems like the Brooklyn Café will have to plan a new tournament soon!

 THE WINNER! Congratulations!

Year 9 Museum Exhibit Assessment 2

Year 9 Museum Exhibit Assessment 2


Since Winter Break, our Year 9 students have been working in their English lessons on their Museum Exhibits which will be displayed in the Light Garden on floor 6 in the glass case. Each exhibit was carefully made to connect it to the book that they are reading in their Literature Circle. In their groups, they created a scene to depict their study topic on their book. So dependent upon which book they were studying, students had a study topic to focus on when making their exhibit.

Novel Study Topics:

The Book Thief - life in wartime Germany

Alone in Berlin - German resistance efforts

Maus and Hana’s Suitcase - Legacy of the Holocaust

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and Number the Stars - Children in war

Once, Then, and Now - Survival

The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips and Friend or Foe - War affecting everyday life

Resistance - Wartime resistance movements

Our lessons have been a hive of activity and creativity and these pictures show the thought and care and attention that these groups put into their work. These exhibits will be graded by their teachers shortly. Each exhibit had to have two index cards to accompany it; one describing the exhibit and one detailing their research that they did to make their exhibit authentic and realistic. Well done, Year 9!
