This year at St. Charles we have Grade 6 Italian monitors. They are Sienna and Dante B. They will be assisting Signora Di Muzio with all things Italian.
Below they have written a paragraph about themselves in Italian.
Ciao mi chiamo Sienna. Ho undici anni. Io ho un fratello. Si chiama Marcus. Vado alla scuola di San Carlo Borromeo. Abito in Victoria, Australia. Sono Australiana. Il mio sport preferito è il nuoto. Il mio piatto preferito è la pizza margherita. Mi piace il netball e One Direction. A presto. Sienna.
Ciao, mi chiamo Dante. Ho undici anni. Vado alla scuola di San Carlo Borromeo. Abito a Melbourne. Sono Australiano. Io ho due fratelli e non ho sorelle. Il mio sport preferito è il calcio. Il mio piatto preferito è la pasta napolitana. Mi piace lo sport e mi piace guardare lo motor sport. Saluti. Dante.
The Grade 1/2s have been learning about the Italian alphabet this term. They have learnt that it has only 21 letters, the letters make different sounds and some have different names to the letters of English alphabet. The students also enjoy singing the song ‘L’Alfabeto Italiano’ by Nadia Cavallo.
Alla prossima !
On the 23rd of June all the 5/6s did an Italian fashion show. We all had to bring our own clothes from home to wear on the day. The whole school came and any parents that wanted to. We all had a lot of fun showing off our outfits and reading the description of it. We all liked having the chance to be a model and do a pose at the end. The whole school enjoyed it and the preps had a laugh when seeing their 5/6 buddies!
