At Wales St Primary, we offer an engaging and interactive Italian program. We aim to develop communication skills, social, historical and cultural knowledge of the Italian language. This also encourages students to develop an awareness and appreciation of all cultures in the wider community.
Each student from Foundation –Grade 6 receives a weekly Italian lesson in which elements of the IB PYP are incorporated. The program makes authentic links to classroom Units of Inquiry, through whole class and cooperative group tasks which are hands on and inclusive for all.
All students participate in a range of learning experiences to develop their skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing. Their learning is reinforced through repetitive patterns, chants, stories, cooking, singing, creating artworks and indoor and outdoor games.
All things Italian are celebrated through our wonderful Italian Day which is held biannually.
