It was really awesome to hear that so many of the students in Room 8 were able to attend one of the services held on ANZAC Day. The children certainly know more about this important date in our year than they did 2 weeks ago.
It was Room 8's turn to display some of their learning at assembly this week.
Here is what we said...
Last week we were talking about ANZAC day. Mrs Finucane read us a lot of different books about ANZAC day and we talked about why we have poppies .
Poppies grew all over the battle fields and they were red, like the colour of blood.
People wear them to remember all of the men and women who died in wars .
The RSA sell poppies to get money to help soldiers who did survive and need things .
Here are 2 short poems we found about poppies...
We wanted to make something to remind us of the all the things we had talked about.
Mrs Finucane found an idea that she thought we could try. We hope you like our Poppy Art.
