Over the past few weeks during our morning group session, the children have been asking to read “How the Birds got their Colours”.  

According to the Dreamtime story, birds all used to be black and have no colour.  One day, a bird landed on a sharp branch, which cut into his foot and made it swell, and all birds except the crow came to his aid and looked after him until the swelling broke, releasing colour into the world.

During this time, we’ve been exploring colour in a variety of ways. Painting our very own version of birds, coloured rice and small flash cards.
