Year 5 - Autumn Big Bang

On Tuesday Year 5 welcomed artist Stephen Rowley, who came in to educate us on Australia and Aboriginal Art. He told us many things and we took part in a variety of different activities over the day.

During the morning session we discussed the different animals that are native to Australia and found out that some of them can be very ferocious! We listened and acted out some Aboriginal tales, we even got to have a go at the Digeridoo, which Sonaina showed a particular talent for.

In the afternoon he showed us many different painting done in the same way the Aboriginals would have done all those years ago. It was not a way we are used to painting, it was done using all dots! These pictures were used to depict the different Aboriginal tales. We worked together in small groups and created some fantastic pieces of art!
