School embraces all things Italian
Sacred Heart Primary School had an all-school Italian Day on November 17.
All classes learn Italian throughout the year and the day started off with a parade because the children had come dressed in Italian colours or as someone/something famous from Italy.
There was a great buzz excitement on the day.
The children spent the day in mixed age groups.
Year 6 children helped to plan the day making a slideshow presentation to present to their group all about Italy; the flag, the map, famous sights, people and food.
Each group also had a special focus — such as the Leaning
of Tower of Pisa, the Colosseum, Venice, Carnevale, stained-glass windows, mosaics, Michelangelo, Mona Lisa — and all groups completed an artwork.
All groups had the opportunity to play bocce, which was a highlight for many.
It was a fantastic day with children of all ages working together, and older children helping the younger children. Fun was had by all.
At the end of the day children returned to their own class to share what they had learned.
