Year 1 Matilda: All About Australia!

The past two weeks we have been very busy in Year One learning all about Australia. We have been looking at the world map to find out where Australia is and then we have been researching how long it takes to travel there. We just can’t believe how far away it is!

We have really enjoyed looking at some of the Australian animals. We have been learning about koalas, kangaroos and wombats plus many more and have enjoyed listening to some stories about all the different animals. Our favourite has been ‘The Koala who could’.

In Art, Year One have been looking at some Aboriginal paintings and having a go at creating our own pictures using dots and lines. We have also been listening to some of the Dreamtime stories to inspire us with our pictures!

We cant wait to find out more!
