Ciao. Mi chiamo, Signor Mantarro.


All students in the school study Italian (LOTE) for forty minutes a week, where they participate in a range of activities, games and role plays to help them read, write, and speak in Italian.


Learning another language allows our students to develop many cognitive skills, such as improved memory, problem-solving and critical thinking. It also helps students to improve their literacy skills and their understanding of the English language.


At Dorset Primary School students are encouraged to use Italian throughout the school day, while we also hold an annual Italian Day, which gives our students the opportunity to experience Italian culture through a range of Italian activities and eating Italian cuisine.
