Anzac Day - 25th April


Over the week we are going to be learning about Anzac day, what it represents and why it is important. Today we watched a clip on youtube about Anzac day and read a story called 'Anzac puppy'. After that we wrote descriptions of what Anzac day is and why it is an important day. Over the next few days we are going to be writing acrostic poems and writing letters as if we were one of the soldiers. 

Anzac day is a day we celebrate all about the soldiers. Over 8000 soldiers died. Australia and New Zealand celebrate Anzac day. They were fighting for 8 months. We wear red poppies to show respect. They fought for their country. The soldiers knew that winning was impossible but they didn't give up. Lest we forget.

Anzac day is a special day because brave powerful soldiers risked their lives to fight for their country. During the first fight lots of people died. Over 8000 soldiers died during the first fight. They were fighting for 8 months. The soldiers knew that winning was impossible but they still did the fighting. This is why New Zealanders and Australians celebrate Anzac day.

Anzac day is a very special day for New Zealanders and Australians. The soldiers were fighting for 8 months and the soldiers knew it was impossible. We remember the soldiers on the 25th April every year. They were fighting for their countries for freedom. We wear red poppies to show our respect. Over 8000 soldiers died. We will never forget them.
