We have had a fun-filled Term 2 in Room 18 with an integrated theme of Australia and Australian animals based around a book called Can You See Me? by Sue Briggs, Bev Harvey and Bronwyn Houston and NAIDOC week earlier in the term.
The Kindy children have made lots of amazing artwork that parents have missed out on seeing with restrictions in place. They have learnt many different art techniques. They have made air-dry clay echidnas, step by step drawings of possums (from Midnight Possum by Sally Morgan), observational still life drawings of a banksia (these were fantastic!), wattle art using different mediums, dot paintings and Aboriginal flags using stampers to name only a few! They have had sensory experiences with gum nuts, seed pods, wood and bark, played barrier games using an Aboriginal themed background and played in our camping dramatic play area that included a campfire and Australian animal puppets.
