In Term 4, 2015 I Belli Scolari did a performance called, “Dov’è finita la befana?” “Where has the Befana (good christmas witch) end up?”. During this term all I Belli Scolari had worked very hard to perform this play. They each studied their lines, learnt how to pronounce their words very clearly, understood what they were saying, wrote up their invitation flyer to give to their family members, learnt how to listen to each other, discovered how to help their peers and it was all successfully completed in Italian. They did their final performance at the Olympic Hotel for the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and any other family member they had invited. This was a great success! Ben fatto scolari!
Video and pictures to come shortly!
One of the topics I Belli Scolari learnt in 2015 at Bella Lingua was food, the module titled “Le tagliatelle di Nonna Pina”. To encourage further development with the language and culture, the students participated in an outing into the community. In term 3, I Belli Scolari went to see how cheese was made at the Floridia Cheese Factory. They were shown what was used from the farm to the shop, how and what ingredients were used to turn the milk into cheese, all the different types of cheeses they could make and finally we all tasted some freshly made ricotta. Each child then went home with some ricotta and a mozzarella cheese in the shape of a piglet. Che esperienza fantastico! Mille grazie a Lisa, Mauro, Fabio, Marco e i personali della fabbrica di Floridia Cheese.
