Foundation A students singing in their Italian ‘grembiule’


Foundation students will be learning how to greet their peers and others in Italian and have started learning this through an Italian greeting song called ‘Ciao, Buongiorno’ (Hello, Good day). They also learnt a little about Italian culture and what children in Italy wear to school. The ‘grembiule’ is the traditional uniform worn by children in Primary School. They are worn over casual clothes and are worn by both girls and boys.

Merry Christmas from Prep!

The students progressed from naming farm animals to making sentences such as ‘Ecco l’asino.’ (Here is the donkey.)  and ‘Ecco i pulcini.’ (Here are the chicks.) In the above examples students were required to reorganize words to make a proper simple Italian sentence.
