Aboriginal art is art made by indigenous Australian people.
Can you find 5 facts about the Australian Indigenous people?
It includes work made in many different ways including painting on leaves, wood carving, rock carving, sculpting, ceremonial clothing and sand painting. Aboriginal art is linked to religious ceremonies. It is an important part of the world's oldest cultural traditions, based on the ‘Dreaming’. All the designs, whether they are painted or have been drawn, have a story behind them.
Miss Sheppard has been busy creating her own rock paintings! Aren’t they great?
Miss Sheppard has challenged you to see if you can make some EVEN better. If you do make your own, send them to the school email address and we can post them on the school website.
The Aboriginal people shared ‘Dreamtime’ stories by drawing secret symbols in the sand to share with those closest to them. They did not want people from around the world to be able to understand what these stories meant so they wrote these stories using special symbols that only they could understand.
Use these Dreamtime symbol maps to write a secret story of your own!
The Indigenous people told Australian myths (a story that is fictional or not true) which are also known as Dreamtime stories and Songlines. Each of the language groups across Australia has its own stories.
All the myths explain important features and meanings within each Aboriginal group's local landscape. They give meaning to why the Australian physical landscape and animals are the way they are.
Take a listen to these different myths that explain how the kangaroos got their tails and how the birds got their colours.

Please help us to ensure your child has an enjoyable learning experience by ensuring that they come to school with suitable clothing, particularly as the weather gets chillier!
The children who have been involved in forest school so far have had a fantastic time!
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday.
