School em­braces all things Ital­ian

The Tatura Guardian - - People -

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.
