We have been learning about the 'Dreamtime Story' artwork that is traditionally produced by Indigenous Australian people to communicate with their ancestors and tell stories of the time before humans. We have been looking at symbols that represent key features of a journey, and have been experimenting with colours, paint and pastel to bring our own dreamtime story artwork to life. Please use the Powerpoints below and your own online research to create your own dreamtime story piece of art!

Science - Use today to research magnetic forces. What are magnets and how do magnets work? Which poles attract and which poles repel? Can you predict which items around your home might be attracted to a magnet? Which items do you predict will not be magnetic? Sort the items into two groups and draw these two groups with the items on paper. Label the groups with a subheading for 'magnetic' and 'non magnetic'.
These websites may be a good starting point for you :)
