Yarra Autumn 2016

The Yarra River is not big. It is not very long, very wide, nor very deep. It is not even very clear. But it is probably one of the cleanest city rivers in the world – and home to the platypus.

In this week’s broadcast Yarra class (year 2) talk about The Naughty Bus and what they want to be when they grow up. You can then hear them sign at the Nativity Assembly and talk about the story behind it.
