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.


 

iGCSE English as a First Language Exams in Week 42

 

 

Our hall in Nacka will not be empty for long as the iGCSE First Language Exams start next Monday. The workshops which have run each week from Week 34 finish with the final workshops on Wednesday and Friday this week. The topic for the workshops this week is top tips and time management. Out of the 42 students who signed up to take this most prestigious examination, most students have attended the workshops and worked hard over the last eight weeks. On Monday 9.15-11.15am, students will sit the Reading Paper and on Wednesday 9.15-11.15am, they will sit the Writing Composition Paper. This is a challenging examination which is marked by British examiners and the results will be published in January 2019.

For more information see their website.

We want to wish our committed students good luck in the exams!

IES Nacka: MATHEMATICS!

In the Maths department, we have a wealth of material to cater for all students mathematical appetites! With heavy focus on real world applications and problem solving, students not only learn the basic concepts but are able to apply them in a number of ways, inside and outside the classroom.

We also offer students the chance to join in with a "Maths Competition Club", where students can enter nationwide competitions or the "iGCSE Cambridge Examination" - an internaitonally recognised qualification, were students learn advanced Mathematics and fully prepare themselves for Gymnasium! We also have online resources such as www.MyiMaths.com where students get individual work set or teach themselves with online lessons and homeworks (Material is suitable for all students).

Update from Science and PE department 20180921

Update from the Science and PE department

 

Science in Grade 4 and 5 are looking at the ecology and the local nature around Nacka and how they interact with one another.

In grade 6 we are introducing the concept of the atom to the students.

In grade 8 we are also looking at ecology but more from the point of view of adaption to the environment for animals and plants.

In year 9 we are looking at Genetics.

 

Currently in PE we are focusing on orienteering in preparation for the upcoming sports day where the year 4 and 5s will be in Nyckelviken. Whilst the older years will be completing a more difficult orienteering course in Hellasgården.

2017 Tony award winner, Rachel Bay Jones, sent the Project Connect students at IES Nacka a special message of love and inclusion.  Rachel Bay Jones portrays the mother, Heidi, in the popular Tony award musical Dear Evan Hansen.  

 

The musical is about a young boy who has social anxiety and his path to self acceptance.  Ms. Jones heard about IES Nacka's Project Connect group through her friend, Mr. Högkvist, and she wanted to reach out to the group to let them know how special they all are.  Unfortunately, the sound did not come through on the message....so the students did a great job of lip reading!
