From the Principal

End of school year 2019

Dear students, parents and staff,

The end of the school year is fast approaching and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your wonderful effort and support for Internationella Engelska Skolan Nacka.  As always, we continue to strive in our academic development and in our desire to improve our professional and personal relationships.

Professionally, IES Nacka is cooperating with Nacka municipality with (SSPF) Skola Socialtjänst Polis Fritidsverksamhet, Barn och Ungdoms focus as well as Nacka teacher training (VFU) program.  We have brought in the fire department to train all students on fire safety and improved the security of the school building. The cooperation between the school and parents is continuously improving.  Activities to raise money with Giving People, trips to amusement parks, museums, as well as organizing visits from educational institutions. The IES Nacka student council has been more active than ever before.  The improvements to the school environment and efforts in the food council have been greatly appreciated. Personally, our staff and students have displayed an openness, kindness and willingness to include others that is lovely to witness and be a part of.  The school leadership are truly thankful for all the participation of our families, community, staff and students at IES Nacka.

Academically the development continues at our school with brilliant national test results and individual achievement.  The Year Level 9 students have achieved the highest grade point average in the schools history and eight students have earned 340 points.  We have diversified our learning with the creation of Project week. Twenty-one different multi-year level (4-7) teams created amazing projects during week twelve, with a final day of displaying their work for parents to come and take part in.  The creativity and resourcefulness was great to see. Lastly, we want to mention the dedication of our school assistants in conducting inspiring competitions, craft projects, and joyful events for junior club as well as driving the reading initiative for Year Levels 4-6. It has been a brilliant success and we are encouraged by so many avid readers using the library facilities during the school year.

We at IES Nacka wish you a relaxing and peaceful summer of 2019.  Please remember the first day of school for 2019-20 will be Thursday the 15th of August.

Best regards,

Donald Christian

Student's suggestion box

New year, new ideas!

Students have been coming with great suggestions of what they would like to see in the cafeteria, therefore we have now put up a new suggestion box where students can leave notes suggesting new things  that they would like to see in the cafeteria or the school.

During week 3 the cafeteria will be arranging a table tennis tournament for students. The games will be played Monday - Thursday between 15:00 - 16:00. There will be music, good games and a great chance to just meet up with friends and watch the tournament.

Brooklyn Café

During the day students are always welcome to the Brooklyn café on floor 5. The foosball, table tennis and pool tables are available and so are all the fun board games.  

The menu and opening hours can be found on the TV screens throughout the school building. Always updated with information regarding new things to buy in the cafeteria and different happenings.
From week 49-51 we will be serving glögg, saffransdrömmar and “julsmörgåsar” since the holidays are just around the corner and you can’t get to much of the holiday feelings.

 

 



 

Student Work

IES Nacka - Svenska - update from Swedish department - IESN#whatwedo

IES Nacka - Svenska - update from Swedish department - IESN#whatwedo

Just nu jobbar vi med en massa olika saker i svenskan. Fyrorna skriver sagor som sedan ska läsas upp för sjuorna. Sjuorna gör samma sak och ska i gengäld läsa sina sagor för fyrorna. De får då träna extra på att anpassa sina berättelser för en yngre publik. Båda årskurserna läser också mycket sagor under detta moment och lär sig vad som gör en saga till en saga. 

 

I årskurs fem gör vi presentationer som handlar om oss själva och vår historia. Då använder vi dator och Google Presentations. Sexorna skriver läskiga spökhistorier och ritar bilder till dessa. Några av dessa historier kommer därefter att tryckas i en bok tillsammans med engelska historier som vi sedan kommer att ha i vårt bibliotek. 

 

Åttorna debatterar för fullt, både genom att skriva artiklar och att hålla argumenterande tal och niorna skriver faktatexter som handlar om allt ifrån hajar till tv-spel. Källkritiken är extra viktig i denna uppgift. Dessutom har sexorna och niorna precis haft muntliga nationella prov. De flesta brukar vara lite nervösa innan provet men säger nästan alltid efteråt att bara var kul.

International and more international

International and more international

Amhariska, italienska, pashto, grekiska, ryska, kinesiska, polska, spanska….detta är bara några av de över 30-talet hemspråk som vi har undervisning i här på IES Nacka.

Att ha tillgång till flera språk är en fin gåva som är väl värd att underhålla och utveckla – och det är just det som sker på hemspråkslektionerna.  

Vi har många elever och externa lärare som kommer, speciellt på måndag-och torsdagsmorgnarna för undervisning. Modersmålsklasserna sker alltid utanför det ordinarie schemat för att inte ta tid från de ordinarie ämnena eller från de också så viktiga lunchtimmen eller rasterna.

 

Det är intressant det man kan läsa om hemspråkets roll hos Skolverket:

“Syftet med undervisningen är att ge eleven möjlighet att utveckla kunskaper i och om sitt språk. Modersmålet har stor betydelse för barns språk, identitets-, personlighets- och tankeutveckling.”

Samt att forskare har funnit att tvåspråkiga förskolebarn är bättre än sina enspråkiga kamrater på att fokusera på en uppgift samtidigt som de ska ignorera distraherande faktorer.

Bara goda möjligheter – även om man missar en sovmorgon i veckan.


 


Amharic, Italian, Pashto, Greek, Russian, Chinese, Polish, Spanish ... these are just some of the over 30 languages ​​that we teach here at IES Nacka.

Having access to several languages ​​is a great gift that is well worth maintain and develop - and that's just what happens at the mother tongue lessons.


We have many students and external teachers who come, especially on Monday and Thursday mornings for their mother tongue classes. These lessons are always outside the regular schedule, so as not to take time from the regular subjects or from the so important lunch hours or breaks.


You can find interesting reading at Skolverket (The National Agency for Education): "The purpose of the teaching is to give the student the opportunity to develop knowledge in and about his language. The mother tongue is of great importance for children's language, identity, personality and thought development."  

And researchers have found that bilingual pre-school children are better than their mono-lingual peers to focus on a task while ignoring distracting factors.

So here we have great possibilities - even if you miss a lie-in morning.
