Benvenuti – Welcome to term 1.  Hope you have had a wonderful break and are ready to embark on the 2024 year.

This year in Italiano, we will continue with our school Language Leaders who will be promoting and encouraging the Italian program and at each assembly introducing simple Italian phrases we can all practice. Each classroom will also have two representatives to further encourage the use of Italian. Our aim is for students to use Italian as much as possible and wherever possible.


Our grade 5/6 students will research about the country Italy, to discover it’s historyand  what each region has to offer.





Grade 3/4 students will be introduced to a book called ‘I Colori delle Emozioni’ by Anna Llenas – ‘Colours and Emotions.’ The story identifies emotions through colours.


Grade 1/ 2 students will start a unit of work on ‘Mia famiglia’ – My family. Students will familiarize themselves and learn how to say family members in Italian and describe their relationship with each family member.

Foundation students will begin by looking at where Australia and Italy are located on the globe. We will look at the flags from each country and learn their colours. We will continue to learn the names of the different colours in Italian through the learning songs, games and activities. We will learn how to count to 10, say basic Italian greetings and how one is feeling.


We are also hoping that if there are any parents who wish to come and volunteer to assist students and perhaps learn Italian whilst doing so, you would be very welcome. Please contact me if you wish to assist and be a parent helping in Italian classes. maria.lyon@education.vic.gov.au


Alla prossima – till next time
