This week Room 9 students have been learning why we have ANZAC Day on the 25th April. We all made poppies which are worn to remember the soldiers who have died in the war. At Discovery Time we made Anzac biscuits, which were sent to the soldiers when they were away from home fighting in the war. We can understand why these biscuits were very much appreciated!
Jacob and Jude researched the meaning behind it and they celebrated their learning by presenting a speech at Pohutukawa Syndicate's assembly on Thursday.
Here is a video recording of the boys making their speech with the support of the class and their poppies.
