In the Lily Room (toddlers) at Bourke Street, the children participated in some art and craft experiences that contribute to our recognition of NAIDOC week. .
Firstly, the children used chalk to draw aboriginal symbols onto black paper, using our Aboriginal story rocks as a guide. The children were then given their own rock, along with colours that represent to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flags. The children used cotton buds to make markings on their rocks, creating their own Aboriginal paintings.
The children then gathered on the mat as we opened our ‘Yarning Circle’. The children recite our ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ paying respect and tribute to our traditional landowners. Miss Chantel then lead the group in discussion as we spoke about our traditional landowners and how they lived off the land. She read ‘Possum Magic’ before using a visual aid to show the children some traditional Aboriginal dancing. She engaged in conversation with the children about how the dances represent stories and why they wear body paint.
The children then looked at Aboriginal music, observing the Aboriginals as they play the Digeridoo and clap sticks. Miss Chantel encouraged the children to clap their hands to the music, pretending they had their own clap sticks. She then asked the children to form a circle with their hands and use their mouth to blow into their hands, making their own Digeridoo. .
2.1: Children develop a sense of belonging to groups and communities and gain an understanding of the reciprocal rights and responsibilities necessary for active community participation.
2.2: Children respond to diversity with respect.
4.3: Children transfer and adapt what they have learnt from one setting to another.
4.4: Children resource their own learning through connecting with people, place, technologies and natural and processed materials.
5.5: Children use information and communication technologies to access information, investigate ideas and represent their thinking.
Indigenous artist Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu is regarded as one of the most important and acclaimed voices to ever come out of Australia. Blind from birth, he found purpose and meaning through songs and music inspired by his Yolngu community. With his unforgettable, soulful sound, he went on to captivate audiences across the globe, playing for such luminaries as the Queen and Barack Obama.
See the poignant portrait of a complex artist who left us just as the rest of the world was about to embrace him. GURRUMUL screens Monday, 8:30PM as part of the Bell Media Hot Docs Showcase.
It’s something special when you get a parent to come in to lead your class. This particular parent is a music teacher at a different school. She had such a blast teaching my class today, and I know my students were equally thrilled with having her teach them. I love to do something a little different on the last day and this was such a happy way to end the school term. 💙
Here is a sneak peek at my work in High Five to the Boys - Penguin Random House. It was an honour to showcase such an inspirational musician. Archie Roach shows people that you can create something wonderful, regardless of the challenges that you face.
It was also an honour to work alongside all of the other talented people involved in this book. #penguinrandomhouse#archieroach#aboriginalmusic#aboriginalillustrator#aboriginal
