Tuesday June 4 saw Mrs Cahill’s Year 2,3 and 4 class packing their bags and heading off to Amaroo for the day. This year the emphasis was on trees and plants and what they do for us and the animals that live in the community.
Mrs Green and Mr Carmody looked after us very well as usual and helped us to learn that plants provided traditional Aboriginal people with tools, medicine, food, weapons and shelter. We also played a fantastic game where we were blindfolded and had to rely on our senses to recognise trees. Mr Carmody took us on a bushwalk and we discovered we had some excellent observers in our class. They found a termite’s nest in a tree, some kangaroo fur caught on the side of a tree and some tiny but very beautiful mushrooms on the track.
All too soon it was time to come back to school and we all decided we couldn’t wait to come back again next year!!
