Week 2 of Term 3 and all grades are hard at work in the Italian classroom.
Preps are learning names for animals and developing the understanding that culture influences representations of sounds such as those made by animals. Today we are using ‘Il Coccodrillo Come Fa?’ song to help us learn words for various animals as well as learn the sounds that they make.
You can sing along at home too.
Grade 1/2 are continuing to explore ‘Gli opposti/I contrari’ (Opposites). We have been playing games like memory and charades to help us remember the vocabulary. Check out some of the work we have been doing.
Grade 3/4 students are learning how to conjugate ‘avere’ (to have) in the present tense so that they can write sentences using the ‘subject-verb-object’ sentence structure. Using this knowledge, this week, the students will write some of their own sentences.
Grade 5/6 students are learning about what school is like in Italy and drawing comparisons between school in Australia and school in Italy. Today they completed some online research to develop their knowledge.
