A Visit to the Park

We went on an excursion today! As we've been learning all about the Noongar seasons, we visited a special park that has a display all about them. Each season has a wooden pole and special things about the season, such as foods, or plants that are common at that time of year, are carved into the wood. There was also a really great playground too. We ate our morning tea on the grass, then had a play! It was a really fun visit.

At our school, every class has an Italian language lesson each week with Signora L. She taught us a song to help us learn the names of body parts. It's a song you might already know the English version of - Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes!

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N


  1. Wow! Your Italian song is fantastic! It must have taken you all so long to learn all those words! We are learning an Italian song too but it only has a few words in it. It's called Giro, Giro Tondo!
    You sound amazing! Keep up the good work, Smarties!

  2. Thanks for telling us about the Noongar seasons. We learn about what our aboriginal people here in Canada did in each season too. Right now the salmon are spawning in the river. The aboriginal people are allowed to spear them. Then they preserve them by smoking them. Mmmm . . . smoked salmon! So good.

  3. Kia Ora,

    We love hearing the song " heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes!” in Italian. We could understand the tune and tried to sing along with you but our Italian was very poor.

    We think your blog is fantastic.
