Wow with Uncle Russell

May30

Meeting Uncle Russell and the Start of our Day of Learning about Indigenous Culture. This was our Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony at the start of our SUPER DAY!

Cleansing ourselves with the smoke from the gum leaves as Uncle Russell taught us by waving our hands in the smoke towards our body.

Uncle Russell painted our faces and for some of us, our hair too!

Playing the didgeridoo

Showing us some traditional tools used by Aboriginals

Clapping sticks and we got to do a dance with these instruments

Getting our faces painted

Helping us to make an Indigenous inspired piece of art with our hands

Learning to throw a boomerang with Uncle Russell. We couldn’t believe our eyes how high he could throw it and how it returned back to him. WOWZERS!

Uncle Russell painting his Totem (the black snake ) on our artwork!

What did you learn from the day with Uncle Russell? What wonderings do you have about Indigenous Culture?

The Birds

October7

What do you think the video tells us?  Does it have a message? If so, what is the message?

Who are the mean ones?  Why are they mean?  Are any of the small birds worse than others?

Is there a moral to the story?  Could we give the story a new title?

How to Make Inferences?

September4


We have been learning about making inferences when we are reading texts. Watch these two videos that will teach you more about this reading comprehension strategy.

While watching the video pay attention to how the characters are feeling. Can you infer what they are feeling and why they are feeling that way? Did you answer any of the questions during the video? If so, what?

Justice & Dignity from Matilda

May30

“Just because you find that life’s not fair it
Doesn’t mean that you just have to grin and bear it
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
Nothing will change

Even if you’re little, you can do a lot, you
Mustn’t let a little thing like, ‘little’ stop you
If you sit around and let them get on top,
You might as well be saying
You think that it’s okay
And that’s not right!
And if not… that’s not right
You need to put it right” 

Matilda in the Roald Dahl

*We are learning about justice and dignity in our Religion Education lessons. What does the quote mean to you?

Miss Murphy Hand Delivered Our Letters to the Prime Minister

September28

In light of our Inquiry topic ‘Who Lived Here First?’ our class wrote letters to Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull outlining reasons as to why we should change the Australian flag mainly because the flag does not represent all Australians especially the Indigenous Australians. This morning our teacher got to hand deliver our letters! It was a pleasure to meet you Prime Minister Turnbull and we thank you for your time for reading our letters and we await your reply!

Change the Australian Flag??

June14

In our class we have been discussing the Australian flag and we have decided that it is time to change the Australian flag since it does not acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who are the original owners of this country. Click on the video above to listen or read about the Behind the News article.

What do you think about the Australian flag?  Do you think the flag represents all the people of Australia? Should the flag be changed? Please share your opinion with us! Stay tuned for photos of our new Australian flag designs!
