Anzac Day

Today and tomorrow we are looking at why we have a holiday on Anzac Day. I hope the children will be able to share what they are learning with you at home.

Carol sent us this link to a blog today that you might find it interesting to have a look at the video
Least we Forget by Rachel Boyd

This is a link you can hear the Last Post which the music that will be played at the Dawn Service

Here is a copy of the poem "In Flanders Fields" by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae on May 3 1915.

Homework for this week is to choose one of these activities

  1. Make Anzac biscuits
  2. Attend an Anzac service
  3. Cut out a newspaper article about Anzac Day - highlight the when, where, who, why or how
  4. Investigate another war that NZ has sent troops
