L’aula d’Italiano – Term 2 so far…

Welcome back to term 2 in the Italian classroom, we are keeping busy!

The Prep children are still busy learning ‘i numeri’ (numbers), and ‘i colori’ (colours) (and wow, they are getting so good at both!). The children had fun making cards for ‘Festa della Mamma’ (Mother’s Day) and have recently started exploring  ‘i parti del corpo’ (parts of the body).

The 1/2s are learning ‘i numeri’ and have become so confident that they are now counting past 20!. They are consolidating on their knowledge of ‘i colori’ and had lots of fun making ‘il gioco della memoria’ (memory card game). They have also been exploring ‘i giorni della settimana’ (days of the week) and ‘i mesi dell’anno’ (months of the year).

The 3/4s are learning ‘i numeri’ and have no problems counting past ‘cento’ (one hundred!). They are exploring ‘giorni della settimana’ (days of the week), ‘i mesi dell’anno’ (the months of the year) through ‘la filastrocca dei mesi’ (rhyme of the months) and have been writing simple sentences in Italian.

The 5/6s have consolidated on their number knowledge and are now counting past 500. They have just finished looking at the topic of ‘Le Nazioni’ where we used simple sentences in the present tense to describe where our families come from.

The 5/6s are now exploring vocabulary associated with ‘Abbigliamento’ (clothing). We have looked at gendering of nouns and converting nouns from singular form into plural form.
