Ciao a tutti, (hello everyone!)

During the final few weeks of the term, our Year 5/6 Italian and performing arts classes combined to create this magical performance of Mariah Carey’s classic song “All I Want for Christmas is You/Perche Il Mio Natale Sei Tu (Because my Christmas is You)”.

Students learnt how to sing part of the song in Italian and English. They learn about the correct singing positions, the meaning behind the song and how to warm up their voices. Students discovered that Italians also love to listen to English artists and as a result, have created covers of many English songs. Students compared the lyrics of the original and the cover and noticed that although the lyrics were not identical, the message of the original song remained the same.

Thank you also to our students who accompanied our singing using their instrumental skills and talents. These included Gracie and Michaela playing the ukulele and Isabella F, Audrey and Sascha playing the violin.

I hope you love it as much as we loved creating it together. It was a fun and special way to end the year in both subject areas.

Special thanks to Stef and Daniel for filming and to the ESS staff for their support on the performance day.

Merry Christmas (Buon Natale),

From The Specialist team (Nancy, Stef and Christine)

Buon divertimento! (Enjoy!)

I second that comment, Christine. Grazie mille, Year 5/6 students for your effort. You sounded ‘meraviglioso’ (marvellous). Year 6s, it has been a privilege and an honour for Christine and I to have created this wonderful memory with you. Buona fortuna (good luck) in high school and life too! 🙂
Arrivederci e buone vacanze! From Nancy 🙂
