Remotely Inspiring Students
Following a decision by the Italian government to temporarily close all schools in Italy in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, remote learning is in effect for all Rome International School (RIS) students.
Here are some of examples of how RIS teachers are remotely inspiring their students.

Well done to all contributors!

Year 1C met earlier this week to vote on what they wanted to learn about this term. It was a close thing! In the end, 'space' and 'fruit' got equal votes. The children talked about what they could do and eventually decided to learn about both.
The children of 3T have dived into their new unit all about expressing ourselves through art. The children learnt how famous artists use their artwork to show emotions and use different colours in order to do this.
