A peek inside the Italian classroom

Here is a look at what students have been up to in the Italian classroom so far this term…

Prep

Have been learning immediate family member titles, they have been focusing on using the Italian language to identify/name members of their family.

La Mia Famiglia (My Family)

Grade 1/2

Students have been looking at extended family member titles. Students are aware that every noun in the Italian language has a gender and have been exploring the key features of singular masculine/feminine nouns.

Grade 3/4

Have been looking at ‘superlativi’ (super adjectives), adjectives used to describe something that is it’s ‘best’, for example, the car isn’t just ‘fast’ but it is ‘the fastest’ – ‘La macchina è velocissima’. They have explored their use and meaning and are now practising putting such adjectives into sentences.

Some examples of sentences that the students have created.

Grade 5/6

Students have been learning Italian idiomatic expressions (espressioni idiomatiche) and have developed an understanding that such expressions are a group of words that have a literal meaning and a figurative meaning. For example, someone who is ‘buono come il pane’ is someone who is ‘as good as bread’ or rather; ‘as good as gold’. Italian idioms often reflect Italian culture, traditions and values.
