Italian Poetry Competition 2017

Gemma, Fabian, Greta, Chloe and Mia took part in the annual Eastern Region Italian Poetry Competition today. Our students did an amazing  job of reciting their poems in front of an audience of about 100 people and I am very proud of their efforts. Molto bravi.

L’ALFABETO ITALIANO

The Italian alphabet has only 21 letters and many of the letters make different sounds in Italian than they do in English. In 1/2 the students have been exploring these sounds and finding new words that begin with each letter.

Listen to Samuel, Isla and Alexander saying the Italian alphabet. Che bravi!

Have you read the latest Leigh Hobbs book “Mr Chicken arriva a Roma”? It’s a  bilingual story about Mr Chicken visiting  il Colosseo, la Bocca della Verità, la Fontana di Trevi, il Vaticano  and other Roman attractions on his vespa.

Ava (Prep M) and Sienna (1/2C) brought it to school recently to share and we also have a copy in the library. Look out for it. It’s fantastico!

There were lots of Year 9 students from Marcellin to help us practice our Italian and complete the activities. We played Tombola made Carnevale masks and an Italian Passport. It was lots of fun.

Today the 5/6s participated in Pasta Making workshops. First they were welcomed with the Fisarmonica and then they began making Tagliatelle. All of the students took their pasta home to cook. I hope they enjoy it.

Buon Appetito!

It’s time for many Italian families in Australia to get together and make SUGO. The tomatoes are washed, chopped and crushed through a machine before being bottled and boiled. The Sugo is then used throughout the year for pasta.

BUON APPETITO!

Molto bravi ragazzi!

ITALIAN DAY

Next we heard from the students with some Italian songs and poems. Later on we enjoyed watching Pippo and Pasquale in their new show “Mission Gnocchi” and eating a traditional gelato.

What’s the time? The students in Years 3 and 4 have been learning how to tell the time in Italian this term. Along with learning the day, date and weather last term they can now state all of the information below about Rome. Bravi ragazzi.

Oggi è giovedì 5 Novembre 2015. Sono le undici e due minuti. Fa bel tempo. È l’autunno. La temperatura è diciotto gradi.

In Italian class,  the  Grade 3 and 4 students have been learning how to describe the weather.

They used this knowledge to write a weather forecast for the main cities of Italy and then present it

orally to the class. This activity allowed the students to use the language they had learnt in context.

Molto bravi ragazzi!
