This week in Junior Italian, students have been participating in classroom-based activities for Italian Week. Calligrams are pictures made entirely of words - no shading, colouring, or lines.

Crostoli are the traditional Italian pastries sprinkled in sugar that are enjoyed in Venice during Carnevale – and they are delicious! Our Junior School students in Years 3 to 6 and our Senior Students in Years 7,8,11 and 12 absolutely enjoyed sampling this authentic Italian delight!

The Junior students have been creating calligrams in class themed to connect with topics currently being inquired into. The Year 3 students have made calligrams based on pencil-case items, the Year 4 students are working on maps of Italy, and the Year 5 students have been making calligram representations of the Learner Profiles as they embark on their PYP Exhibition journey.
