We will be listening to some famous poems and songs about Australia.  You will need to read and listen to the words very carefully and try to picture what they say in your head.  We will be singing the first song ourselves and trying to picture what the “First Australians” thought when they saw the tall ships arrive by sea.

1. “I am Australian” – music video of the song

2. MY COUNTRY – a poem by Dorothea McKellar

We will be learning this poem and trying to recite it ourselves.  You need to look out for all the describing words (adjectives) and we will be drawing pictures to illustrate each line of this poem.  Enjoy!  🙂

Looking at the describing words she uses, you are now going to illustrate her famous first verse of this poem.
