All across KS1 and KS2 on Friday afternoon was Italian afternoon. After a classic italian lunch like spaghetti and lasagne, classes leaned some basic Italian vocab, cooked some pizza's, became artists like MichaelAngelo and did some artwork under the table and some even learned a new song. Every italian child became the teacher in their year group and taught the other children numbers , colours and various greetings. An amazing time was had by all.
Keep a look out for all the amazing things that will be happening on our EAL afternoon across school on the 22nd of March 2019. All classes across KS1 and Ks2 will be teaching and learning about Italy. There is going to be cooking and art and lots of basic language skills.
The EAL group have been learning all week about shopping. Names of items and how to ask for them. We even had shopping lists and took it in turns to buy them from the pretend shop. We used english coins and also learnt about money. As a treat and to test their shopping skills Mrs Della Rocca took The EAL group out shopping to buy fruit. They went to Hopkins bakery on Beckhampton road. Each child had £1 to spend and they had to ask for their item and pay for it. Mrs Della Rocca couldn't have been more proud. They all went back to school to enjoy the grapes and oranges (Plus two cakes that Mike from the bakery threw in.) A lovely afternoon was had by all.
The Eal group were learning about all kinds of weather today. They used a spooky hand that stopped in random places and the nearest group member had to say it then act it out.
In October 2018 we had four children join us from Italy. They are Abigail in year 6 , Donaldy in year 5, Melody in Year 4 and Davide in year 2. They are in an Eal group that is run 3 times a week by Mrs Della Rocca. Here they are learning nouns about their outside environment. (e.g.Window, Door, Roof and tree)
