On Thursday, January 26th Eagles celebrated Australia Day as part of their topic on Australia. Poppy and Caleb had Australian hats and Jimmy had a didgeridoo! Maisie looked fantastic in her Australia shirt and flag on her cheek, whilst Felix G had an Australian bow tie printed on his t-shirt.
They learned about Dorothy Napangardi, an Aboriginal artist and created their own artwork following her style.
They also made Lamingtons - some more successfully than others! Luckily Mrs Griffin had made some fabulous Lamingtons which we shared at the end of the day. Thank you Mrs Griffin!
Mr Major did some Aussie Rules football - handily Jimmy had brought in his own Aussie Rules ball. The children also played cricket before ending the day with an Aussie food experience - camel sausages, kangaroo sausages, ostrich burgers and crocodile burgers. Every single non-vegetarian child gave every meat type a try, which we were very impressed by. The vegetarians had mozzarella filled veggie bites and stuffed cucumbers, a popular Australian appetiser. We also had fairy bread and Vegemite.
