The Language of choice at Streeton Primary School is Italian which has been established for a number of years and is well resourced and respected by the Streeton community. The students are engaged and immersed in the language through the use of varied visual aids such as flashcards, posters, puppets and story books and ICT such as interactive whiteboards, iPads and varied multimedia.
Our school has a dedicated Language Room where the students attend one hour sessions per week. Our program focuses on communication in Italian which incorporates listening, speaking, viewing, reading and writing tasks and activities such as language games, role plays and skits. The program also focuses on developing intercultural knowledge through hands on activities such as cooking and Italian days, where the Italian language and culture is celebrated.
