LPS Point of Difference - Virtual Italian Classroom

   Italian Classes Online 

   We have recently launched into an innovative and brand new program at LPS. In fact, the first of its kind in the Victorian Department of Education. Our Prep/One teachers, Wendy and Andrea and Italian teacher, Renita are working together to create a Virtual Flipped Language Program.

   Renita will be recording Italian lessons for our Prep/1 classes to access at any time along with her working “live” with our classes. The prep/one classes will also participate virtual conferencing sessions with Renita.

   This is an exciting innovation to the delivery of language in our school. We are thrilled to be instrumental in the delivery of such an engaging way of learning with an approach that will be, hopefully, implemented across the state.


Che divertimento!

Students will continue to use Italian for social interactions such as greetings, asking and answering simple questions, responding to instructions, singing songs, and taking turns in games and simple shared tasks. The focus is on listening to the sounds, shapes and patterns of Italian through activities such as rhymes, songs, clapping and action games. Repetition and recycling helps children to identify frequently used words and simple phrases, and to recognise the purpose and intention of simple texts.
