Our focus in Science this week is learning about the six Noonjar seasons. We are currently in Kambarang, the season of wildflowers. Mrs Cogger found this youtube about the six seasons and it explains why the Noonjar people moved every two months.
We then investigated St Emilie’s Bushland looking for signs that is was now the Kambarang season.
Here are some of the indicators that we are in the Kambarang season.
Banksia attenuata is flowering
Kangaroo Paws have almost finished flowering.
I loved looking for new signs and wildflife and discovering new plants and animals. Also discovering why and what insects make houses and how they catch their prey. Kian and Luke H
There is an increase in heat and the animals and insects hide in the shade. Norah and Samara.
It would be much cooler on the coast for the Noonjar people than inland. Joanna and Chloe
To move away from the heat so that they can swim, fish and keep cool. Jessica H and Lyana
How the animals are behaving. Changes to the stars, creeks, lakes and rivers. Ione and Antonio
