Last term Class Two went on a calendar journey exploring the fauna and flora of our surrounding area. Some of the things we learned were that there are six Bundjalung seasons, not our traditional four. We also learned that everything in nature is telling us something. For example, did you know that when the silky oak is flowering that the turtles are good eating? Or that chains of furry caterpillars up on the plains indicate that the mullet are running on the coast? We all enjoyed feeling more connected to what is around us, and I particularly enjoyed hearing the knowledge the children already knew.
