"Thankyou so much. We read Shirley Pearl’s letter today in our preschool room. The children were really interested and loved the Goombawa song. It was a lovely way to embed an Aboriginal perspective into our afternoon group time."
"Today I introduced Shirley Pearl to my 3 year old's and read them the letter. They were so enthralled in Shirley’s adventure and asked lots of questions as we were reading the letter. We also listened to the song by Trish and Noel Butler and then they asked to listen again with lots of the children singing along the second time. When I asked if they wanted to write back to Shirley they were so excited and said a resounding YES I have reduced and copied the letter so we can display it in the room for families to read so they are able to join in with their children on the learning adventure"
"I have created a space within my babies room to share Shirley Pearls adventures with our families. From each letter we receive I will be displaying the learning that’s followed. We explored eucalyptus scented Playdough, with gumnuts and eucalypt leavesand a Koala for our first experience."
