Time to remember…...

Welcome back!

We hope that you all had a fun filled holiday. We were so lucky to get amazing weather over Easter.

Did the Easter bunny come to visit you?
He came and visited all of us….Yum!!!

Our apologies for no blog on the last week…things didn't go according to plan!

A time to remember…..

This week has been all about remembering the soldiers that went to war 100 years ago.

We have listened to some beautiful stories, looked at pictures of Gallipoli from the war and how it is now, made poppies to put on the remembrance crosses at school, looked at war medals that belonged to Gayle's granddad and great granddad , made Anzac biscuits and talked and talked about how people must have felt…the soldiers and the families that they left behind.
We think that it must have been a very sad time.

We used sponges to paint our poppies red.

"I will just put my name on my poppy because I want to take this one home"

"I have loved learning about the soldiers''

'Now for the centre of the poppy'

Our Anzac biscuits….modified!

Have a wonderful weekend.

We are all going to spend some time tomorrow …Anzac Day….remembering what we have learnt this week.

It is important to  stop for a moment and remember.

A favour… could you please save all your cream bottle top lids as we are going to carry on with our bottle top art this term.  This time we are making a poppy so we need HEAPS of red bottle tops.

See you next week
