This week we are going to listen to some dreamtime Aboriginal stories as part of our work on 'Amazing Australia'.

Information for parents

The Aborigines are the first people who lived in Australia. Aboriginal people have lived in  Australia for more than 50,000 years. They have  a close connection to the land, to waterways, and to living things.  The Aboriginal people have their own  cultural practices, languages, and beliefs.The Aboriginal people have their own stories about how they came to be. These stories are part of the Dreaming, or Dreamtime. The Dreaming or Dreamtime is very important to the Aboriginal people. It is the basis for their history, their relationship with the land, and their laws. There are lots of different Dreaming or Dreamtime stories and they are all about the world , its animals and how the Aborigines believed the world came to be.
