Benvenuti in Italia!
We are extremely excited to be teaching Italian throughout the years at John Betts School.
In Years One and Two we learn simple greetings and then, as we move through Key Stage 2, we follow the award-winning Language Angels scheme. Not only do our children learn basic conversation, they learn key language skills such as vocabulary relating to real-life situations, pronunciation and grammar.
Italian is taught mostly though vibrant and engaging conversation and role-play, modelling real-life situations. In addition, we weave Italian through the wider curriculum, forging links with science and humanities as well as food technology and music. Each year we bring our Italian efforts together for an all-immersive Italian Day, where the children experience all manner of Italian delights from making tiramisù to live opera!
