A show for young people in our community whose voices, stories and perspectives aren't often seen or heard. In this episode, we hear what it's like being Aboriginal. Professional learning for teachers Reflecting on the issues raised in this video and applying that knowledge to your teaching may count towards your teacher-identified hours of professional learning. This video resource informs AITSL focus areas 1.4 (strategies for teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students) and 2.4 (understand and respect Indigenous people to promote reconciliation). Consider the ways you can incorporate Aboriginal perspectives into your teaching and think about the way past injustices have impacted upon generations of Indigenous people.

Like our heroes in this episode, every goalkeeper in the world needs to know how to stretch their arms wide to their sides. But that's a really long and convoluted way to explain that action. It's much easier to take the word 'yarroo' from the Western Australian Miriwoong language, and become the best goalkeeper ever! Suggested Classroom Activities: Turn and talk: When might you need to stretch your arms wide open? Think of some examples, then say 'yaroo' after each example. Art and design: Draw a picture of a person stretching their arms out wide, write the word 'yaroo' along each arm. Geography: The Miriwoong language is spoken in the north of Western Australia. Draw and label a compass with the directions North, South, East and West.
What do you do when you need to get someone's attention really quickly? When you need to alert the people around you to something important that you see, and "hey!" doesn't quite cut it? The kids in this class are in desperate need for such a word. Thankfully palawa kani, the language of Tasmanian Aborigines, has a great word for that: warr! Suggested Classroom Activities: Role play: Think of a time where you might need to quickly get someone's attention. Act it out in a pair or small group and make sure you use the Palawa Kani word 'Warr!'. Art: Draw a comic with someone saying the word 'Warr!' Geography: Find Tasmania on a map of Australia. Write one or two sentences about Tasmania. eg: It is an island. It is near Victoria.
Sometimes you're in a situation for which there is no simple word, like when your ball gets stuck in a tree and you need to kick it to get the ball to fall. Right? Wrong! Anindilyakwa, a language from far north Northern Territory, has a perfect word just for that. It's 'ngarrarndirrarjena'. Now you just need to learn how to pronounce it right! Suggested classroom activities Turn and talk: When have you got something stuck up a tree? What was it? How did you get it down? Phonics: How many syllables can you hear in the word 'ngarradirrajena'? Clap the sounds to break it up and see how many syllables you can hear: ng-arr-arn-dirr-a-je-na. Art and design: Draw or paint a tree that needs shaking to get something down from it! Describe your artwork to a friend. Geography: Find the Northern Territory on a map of Australia.

Barangaroo's world would be perfect if only Mani, the biggest boy in her group of friends, would stop trying to be number one.

But when a little boy (Mung) goes missing, Barangaroo and Mani are forced to follow his trail into a scary gully ruled by the legendary monster: the Mumuga. The Mumuga has a ferocious howl that echoes across the land. He's said to knock kids unconscious with the smell of his horrible farts and drag them away into his cave.
