Term 1 is in full swing now, it is hard to believe that we are already in the fourth week of term!
Preps have gotten off to an amazing start. They have learnt to greet in Italian, can sing the ‘ciao, buongiorno’ song and are currently exploring ‘I colori’ – we have been making mosaic ‘bandiere dell’italia’ (flags of Italy) using ‘verde, bianco e rosso’ (green, white & red).
Grade 1/2s have been focusing on language associated with classroom routine and positive behaviour. Next we will be looking at ways to express how we are feeling in the Italian language.
Grade 3/4 students have also been exploring vocabulary associated with classroom behaviour and routine, they have been learning to use this language in context. Next we will be creating profiles and learning how to use both junior and adult Italian dictionaries.
Grade 5/6 students have been creating a profile on ‘tutto su di me’ (all about me). They are also developing their skills of using an adult Italian dictionary as well developing their Italian vocabulary to describe their interests and preferences.
