We enjoyed reading lots of books written and illustrated by Graeme Base.
We created our own hidden picture pages like Animalia.
We learnt about Australian artists Sidney Nolan who created lots of pictures of Ned Kelly and we made our own too.
The Preps, 1s and 2s came to school dressed up as Australian animals, icons and personalities. We had a parade in the morning to see everyone’s costume.
After school we had an Aussie picnic with some Granny Smith apples, lamingtons, sausage rolls, pavlova and cordial.
We played some Aussie games like the thong toss and Aussie animal relay. We also answered some Australian trivia questions.
After the games we went to the EPEE Centre and sang some Aussie folk songs and listened to some Bush Poetry.
