Mrs Furlong is teaching us about a land far far away called Australia. We can’t believe there are so many interesting animals living there like kangaroos and koalas. Mrs Furlong said that we could not keep a crocodile for a pet because they would not be nice to cuddle ahhhh…… We made boomerangs in school and we listened to how a digeridoo sounds. (the link is above) We saw a picture of Ayers Rock and we could not believe it looks red.
We learned all about the national flag of Australia and Teacher showed us a picture of the beautiful Sydney Opera House. WOW!!!!!
We have so much more to learn. IT IS A VERY BIG PLACE………..
We hope you like our pictures.

This week we are learning all about the safe cross code. Ms Furlong is teaching us a great song and we are learning the actions to go with it. Ms Furlong said that we all need to learn how to cross the road properly so that we can stay safe for our Mammies and Daddies. Even though we are learning how to cross the road safely, we are just too little still to cross the road all by ourselves. Our Teacher told us that she learned this song when she was a little girl which wasn’t that long ago………. here it goes….. all together now
1 look for a safe place
2 don’t hurry stop and wait
3 look all around and listen before you cross the road remember
4 let all the traffic pass you
5 then walking strainght across you
6 keep watching ‘that’s the safe cross code………The safe cross code
