History in grade 1/2

This semester the 1/2s are investigating local landmarks and special locations as part of their history studies. Last week they were incredibly lucky to get a visit from a senior Wurundjeri Elder, Aunty Joy Murphy. Aunty Joy spoke to the students about indigenous and sacred land and artefacts and what it means to her and Australia’s history. The 1/2s where able to touch and play with a number of special artefacts that Aunty Joy had brought in such as a possum skin soccer ball and boomerangs. It was a real pleasure and so interesting to hear all the wonderful stories she had to share. The 1/2s are even more excited to investigate artefacts that are special to them.
