Towards the end of last term many of you met our new classroom additions, Randal and Phillipa.

These very quiet and friendly birds have come into our classroom and will, along with the lava lamps, be allocated to the special tables who follow our Tribes Agreements during the week.

Look out! The fun is about to begin…

Australian History story dating back over 50 000 years

http://www.itsanhonour.gov.au/index.cfm

On Friday we had two very clever men perform an act (role play) that described Australian History from the very beginning when the Indigenous people roamed the country.

The story included:

Captain James Cook, the First Fleet, voting rights, famous Australian sporting legends, women’s rights, Government structure and the many changes throughout time,  previous Prime Ministers, The Goldrush and the Eureka uprising  and much, much more.

Name something you learnt about Australian History.

Did you enjoy the performance? (why/ why not)

Although there was a comical side to this performance, what do you think was the purpose of a show such as this?
