The Year Twos have written some great recounts about our recent Indigenous Culture Incursion!
Here are a few examples of our work and photographs showing some of the many great things we learnt…
On Thursday we had our Indigenous Culture day. We had a special guest called Greg Nannup. He came to teach us about Aboriginal people. (Eva)
We went to the bush. He was showing us some things in his bag. He showed us kangaroo skin to make bags and clothes. (Joel)
He also said that red things like seeds, animals and bright yellow animals can be very dangerous. (Linisha)
I learnt that red is a bad colour. If you see something in the bush that is red, it is poisonous. (Sajith)
When they were moving they would burn the woods so it would grow new plants and it would be very healthy. (Ayva)
I’m going to tell you about a special tree that is called a banksia. When this tree is burnt it releases their seeds. Then it grows new ones. (Calum)
He showed us what we could eat in the bush. He also showed us how to find water. (Allira)
He told us is you see a healthy sheoak, you know there’s a lot of water nearby. (Kieran)
There is medicine in the grass tree that can heal you. (Summer)
He also showed us an emu egg and a wooden knife with shark teeth. (Jose)
I felt excited because Greg was teaching us a lot of things and I learnt a lot about it. He tried to answer all of the questions. (Ethan)
I felt smart after that because it was so much information. (Ignatius)
We really enjoyed exploring the interesting artefacts Greg brought to share with us.
They have taught us so much about indigenous culture and what life was like in the past.
