At St Albans North Primary School all learners participate in an hour session weekly of Italian Language Studies.
Learning a language gives learners the opportunity to further improve their communication and literacy skills. It allows them to learn about different cultures, their traditions, history and further develop a sense of respect and understanding for others. Learners are continually encouraged to reflect on their culture, make connections and compare it to life in Italy.
Our Italian sessions cover a variety of engaging themes and topics, including: Greetings, Sport, Animals, Parts of the body, Pinocchio, Italian culture, Food, Hobbies, Festivals and Family, just to name a few.
When possible Italian sessions are linked in with classroom Inquiry topics as well as topics taught in the Arts and Physical Education.
