Australia And The World Around Us


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Recently we have had a child leave our setting for a years stay in Australia with her family. We have stayed in contact with her and would like to involve the children more with understanding where she has gone to. Please could anyone forward me any medium term planning or ideas about a topic on Australia and also any other countries they may have focused on.


Thank you in advance, I'm really grateful for any help.

My son's friend moved out there... we stayed in touch for a while, and they sent over some Aus. story books with traditional characters in from over there. It made really interesting reading.


Talk about their night and our day....

Having a BBQ on the beach at Christmas, that always strikes me as wierd!
