In Reception we have loved learning about Australia! We have looked at where the country is, what animals live there and their different traditions.
We got to create art work just like the famous Australian artist Ken Done.
We had a chance to throw a boomerang although we weren’t able to get it to return to us so we are going to practice some more!
There were a lot of mixed reviews to a Vegemite tasting session…
We are lucky enough to have a member of our class who has family who live in Australia. As a class we wrote a letter to this family and asked them lots of questions about the country. We were so excited when we got a reply!!
We asked questions about their schools and what Reception classes in Australia are up to. It was a shock to find out they had just finished their summer holidays and had returned to school that very day!
