Year 1 and 2 puppet shows in Italian classes

The Year 1 and 2 students have listened to a story about Il Pappagallo (The Cockatoo).  They presented short plays to each other and have taken home their puppets and script.  Please encourage them to share with you at home.

Year 5 and 6 exploring Languages Online

The Year 5 students have been learning how to read the date using the day and month.  The months of the year only need a capital letter if they are used at the beginning of a sentence.

gennaio, febbraio, marzo, aprile, maggio, giugno. luglio, agosto, settembre, ottobre, novembre, dicembre

The Year 6 students have been learning how to say Where do you live? (Dove abiti?) I live in……. (Abito in…….) They have also learnt the language of location, vicino (close/near) and lontano (far).

To consolidate their learning students played some games on Languages Online.  (Topic 13 Where do you live?) and (Topic 27 Saying the date).

Remember Languages Online is free, there are no passwords or log in.  Please encourage your child to revise the Italian language.

Italian: Days of the week – Year 1/2

The students in Year 1/2 and Year 5 played board games to reinforce what was learnt in class.  The language of taking turns (tocca a te) and numbers one to six was revised (uno, due, tre, quattro, cinque, sei) as well as “I’ve won!” (ho vinto!)

I giorni della settimana (Days of the week )

lunedi` (Monday)    martedi` (Tuesday)     mercoledi` (Wednesday)   giovedi`  (Thursday)  venerdi` (Friday)

sabato (Saturday)    domenica (Sunday)

REMEMBER the days of the week in Italian do not need a capital letter except if at the beginning of a sentence.
