At Sonas we continuously plan and deliver amazing, fun and developmental experiences for your child.
The past week we have been learning how to recite the Acknowledgement of Country. Together we touched the ground of the land we live on by placing our hands on the ground in front of us.
We reach for the sky that covers our land, by reaching out with our hands to touch the sky and we touch our hearts to care for the land, where we will touch our chest where our hearts are.
We as a group explored Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's culture that have a connection with places and people past and present. We looked at the different Aboriginal symbols and we created our own storytelling, learnt what the symbols represent and tried our hand at drawing these.
The past week we have been talking together about a 7-year-old boy we are going to sponsor. Our sponsorship is providing this little boy with the tools and support he needs to succeed during his education. This week we have brainstormed different ways we can communicate with him. We have drawn him pictures and painted him pictures that we want to post to him; we also used the old red telephone to make some phone calls and ask him many questions.
The last two weeks we have been learning about Australia. Why we celebrate Australia Day and who does what on Australia Day. Here at Huntingdale we got to explore playdough with our native gumtrees. Creating the map of Australia with playdough and placing bits of gumtree through it.
We also created a collage of the aboriginal flag using red, yellow and black torn paper. We also used our imagination’s in creating fireworks. By using pipe cleaners, we twisted them into stars and dipped them into paint and glitter to press onto paper.
Taa Daa our very own fire works!
