Scuola dell’ infanzia di Barcola 2011

This week I finished the nursery school year with two end of year shows.  We sang head, shoulders, knees and toes and Jelly on a plate. We recognized colours and animals. We stood up, sat down, turned around and jumped. And we even played rockets and counted backwards from 10 – 0 before blasting off. The children were really great, and it really gave the parents a little window into what we had done during the year.

Thank you children and nursery school teachers, it was fun working with you. I hope we can do it again next year.

Scuola dell’ infanzia di Barcola -Update

I haven’t posted a progress report on the English sessions for a long time, but I must say that classes have been amazing. I really do feel that our sessions will have a positive impact on the children’s future English learning.

In both the 2nd and 3rd year classes we have sung our best loved songs, counted forwards and backwards with our fingers, learnt animal names, and  pretended to be trees, flowers and grass. We have woken up with a very loud ‘GOOD MORNING’ and gone to sleep with a soft ‘good night’. We have been the Sun, the stars, and the rain. And more importantly we have had fun doing so. 🙂

Scuola dell’ infanzia’s 12th session

  • In the 3rd year class today we spoke about rainy days and wintry clothes, as well as revising past topics we began to learn a new song, ‘It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring’.
  • In the 2nd year class we practised our past topics and songs and we also learnt three new animals, the sheep, the cow and the horse.

It was a very productive week. 🙂

Scuola dell’ infanzia di Barcola 10th & 11th sessions

Again I apologise for the lateness.

  • In the third year class we have been having fun with shapes, songs and animals. We also began a new game where the children each draw something on the board and the class has to guess what it is. 🙂
  • In the second year class we have been playing with animals, numbers, body parts and songs. Their favourite song at the moment is Head, shoulders, knees and toes. 🙂

Scuola dell’ infanzia di Barcola 8th & 9th sessions

My first update of the year. 🙂 And this is what we have been doing:

  • In the 3rd year class we have been singing our old favourite songs and playing our favourite word games. And we have been learning to ask and answer another vital question – ‘How are you’? 🙂
  • In the 2nd year class we learned some the names of some new animals, sang our songs and remembered some body part words.

Scuola dell’ infanzia di Barcola 7th session

Another great week at the preschool. The children really seem to be enjoying it. 🙂

  • In the 3rd year class we learnt words about the weather, sang, counted, remembered animal names and practised our colours.
  • In the 2nd year class we sang our learnt songs and learnt a new one, I can sing a rainbow. We counted from 1 to 10 and from 10 to 1, and we learnt some animal names.

Scuola dell’ infanzia di Barcola 6th session

During our sixth session this is what we did. 🙂

  • In the 3rd year class we sang, we practised our colours, counted and learned some phrases to describe the weather.
  • In the 2nd year class we practised naming parts of our body, we counted to ten and counted down from ten, and we sang Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes, and we learnt a new song entitled Good Morning to You.

Scuola dell’ infanzia di Barcola 5th session

This week was another good one. 🙂

  • In the 3rd year class we counted to 25, we learnt and revised animal names, we sang ‘One potato, two potato‘ along with a couple of older songs, we revised the concepts of boy and girl, but the children reprimanded me because we didn’t practise our colours!
  • In the 2nd year class we  counted from 1 to 10, we revised some basic body parts, we sang ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’, we learnt the concepts of boy and girl, and we practised our colours. 🙂

Scuola dell’ infanzia di Barcola 4th session

On Friday we held our 4th preschool English session, and it was great. 🙂 As well as teaching the nursery’s third year, we also began classes with those in the second.

  • In the 3rd year class we continued with the numbers 1-20, the primary colours, body parts, shapes, animals and plants. We sang a few songs including our new favourite ‘One potato, two potato.’
  • In the new 2nd year class we counted from 1 to 10, we learnt a few colours, and body parts and sang our first song, ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes.’ We also learnt to answer that  important question ‘What is your name?’ 🙂

I will keep you further updated.
