Viva l’Italia Day

Year 3 have been enjoying a special Italian day at school. We have been learning about Italian culture and geography through lots of fun activities. The children were invited to wear red, white and green, the colours of the Italian flag.

We learnt about famous Italian artists such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. We created our own artwork inspired by the  Ona Lisa.

We had a zoom assembly with special Italian correspondents Mrs Poll and Mrs Peden who both have connections to Italy. They told us about their experiences and taught us some Italian.

We learned about traditional Italian music and dancing.

And of course, we made (and ate!) pizza.

 

We will continue our learning about Italy over the next few weeks, and making comparisons between Italy and the UK. We look forward to sharing more of our learning soon.
Ciao for now!
