Buongiorno Italia

Thursday 8th June

On Thursday we had our International Day. In Cedar Class we learnt a little bit about Italy as that is where Miss Nash's mum comes from. We learnt a nursery rhyme in Italian called Giro Giro Tondo which is like ring a ring a roses in England, we went out into the playground and sang it as we all danced around.

We made some simple pizzas on bread, which was great fun.
We got to choose our toppings, we had tomato, cheese, ham, tuna and sweetcorn. Mrs Day then put them in the oven for us.
Once they were cooked we got to sit outside and eat them. Buon appetito!
We had a fact sheet on Italy to complete. We had to find Italy on a world map, draw it's flag and write down some famous Italian people, food and sports.
We also drew some famous buildings found in Italy such as the Rialto Bridge in Venice, the Colloseum in Rome and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Miss Nash taught us the colours in Italian and some farm animals. We then had to colour a rainbow in correctly which had the colours written in Italian on it, on the back we drew a farm yard scene and labelled the animals in Italian.
We had a go at making our own mosaics, which the Romans used to decorate their walls and floors.
We had lots of coloured squares which we glued onto a template to make our mosiacs. We took a lot of care and time making these.

We had lots of fun finding out about Italy, it was a great morning full of fun, food and learning.
