On the 30th of April the students from 1/2 went on an excursion to the Royal Melbourne Botanic Gardens. The excursion was part of our Inquiry topic ‘Connecting to Country’ which explores Aboriginal people and their culture.
Listen to this fabulous version of Icehouse’s Great Southern Land while you read and check out some fabulous photographs from the excursion.
Here are some thoughts about the day:
Liam: Robyn led us to the first activity which was making necklaces out of string.
Lachlan: I went down to the river and I saw a frog.
Tamika: We went on a walk and went into a bamboo maze.
Hayley: We had a look at Aboriginal instruments.
Noah: I went to the lake. It was beautiful and it had eels in it.
Aalishba: When we went with Robyn we learned a lot. We did rock painting.
Olivia: We went to the lake and there was a secret entrance.
Joel: We got into the bus for about one and a half hours. Then we arrived at the Botanic Gardens.
Sumit: We went to do activities. One was rock painting and another was a leaf fight.
Jayda: I played in comfy leaves. They went boom into the sky when I jumped into them.
Salini: When we were at our destination we went for a walk and did some activities.
Amy: The gardens had flowers and trees and beautiful butterflies. I smelled the flowers and the flowers smelled good.
Nirvana: We went for a walk to the lake and learned about gum trees with Robyn.
Lilah: We painted on rocks and paperbark.
Mikayla: We saw a cactus and we saw a waterfall.
Hudson: We saw a pug and we saw some plants.
Dylan: We collected paperbark and we saw dangerous weapons and an emu caller.
Emmerson: We went on the bridge and there was a river and a waterfall. I saw a frog in the water.
Lucas: We went in the special part that no one knows about and we made stuff. We saw instruments and talked about them.
Thanks so much to our wonderful parent helpers, Lauren, Krystie and Casey.
Also a huge thanks to Suzanne for stepping in for me on the day and for taking such fabulous photographs.
