Topic: What is life like down under?
As part of our topic this term we will be learning about Australia and it's history. We will be comparing a port town in Australia with Dover, thinking about the geographical similarities and differences between the two. We will then be finding out about Aboriginals and their history. We will be exploring the instruments they have played and the art work they have created, learning the meaning behind some of the symbols. Building on from our learning about explorers last term, we will be looking at Captain Cook and his discovery of Australia.
