Term 3 Overview
Students participate in classroom interactions to engage with prior learning and to explore new language. Through interacting with the text, Aiuto! Un topo! (Help! A mouse!), students learn family members, reproduce sounds of the Italian language and participate in class play using the target language. Students will be building on their knowledge of body parts by learning the song ‘Cantando nella Pioggia’ (Singing in the Rain).
The popular artwork ‘Il banchetto di Cleopatra’, The Banquet of Cleopatra by Tiepolo at the NGV, forms a visual and historical text in which the students collaborate to find meaning. The characters from the artwork are presented in a role-play in a restaurant, in which students learn to order food in the target language. Students participate in small groups to create a menu in Italian for their own restaurant.
