“In Term 1, Year 1 Italian students learnt about gender and articles by using cards with parts of words and colours,” said Assistant Head of Junior Languages (European Languages) Annamaria Ferragina.
“The children put together the vocabulary like a puzzle, sounding out the vocabulary and matching the right colours to experiment with how language is constructed.
“The children also practised their team-building skills by working together to complete all the words.
“Initially, some children just worked individually, but when they realised they had to complete all the words they had to work as a group. They got the job done with plenty of house points and team cheer!”
