Art: Aboriginal Art using symbols
After looking at our Excursion photos, many children noticed lots of repeating patterns found in some of the Aboriginal Artwork. Today we explored this curiosity by looking closely at the importance of this type of art work. We discovered that there is no written language for Aboriginal people so important cultural stories are passed down through the generations by symbols and icons portrayed in artwork.
Children had a go at exploring these symbols and icons today. Some creating secret stories and having their Friedan try to solve them.
Prayer hosted by Riley and Mary

Evie: Dear God, thank you for water because it keeps the sea animals alive and the water keeps us alive.
