Term 4 is flying by – students have been keeping very busy and having lots of fun in the Italian classroom.
Prep – just finished a unit on ‘la famiglia’ (family) – they are beginning to notice that in Italian nouns are either masculine (boy words) or feminine (girl words). We have now started learning about ‘le stagioni’ (the seasons) and ‘il tempo’ (the weather).
Grade 1/2 – have been learning about ‘il trasporto’ (transport) – they are learning to name them as well as respond to the question ‘Come ci vai a scuola?’ (how do you get to school?)
Grade 3/4 – have been learning about ‘la famiglia’ (family) and learning to identify and use singular aggettivi possessivi (possessive adjectives) so as to describe the members of their family.
Grade 5/6 – have been learning how to conjugate and understand regular verbs in the present tense and are now commencing a unit on ‘i negozi’ (shops) and ‘il cibo’ (food). They will use new vocabulary to participate in simple transactions (to order/purchase goods).
