Celebrating Anzac Day

Room 21 have been learning all about Anzac Day and World War One. Did you know that it is the 100th anniversary of when the Anzac troops landed at Gallipoli? Did you know that Gallipoli is in a country called Turkey? 

We have been writing reports about our learning.

We celebrate Anzac Day for the people who sacrificed their lives for us. There are dawn parades in New Zealand and Australia. Anzac Day is each year on the 25th of April. It is quiet at dawn.

We celebrate Anzac Day on the 25th of April. In New Zealand and Australia there are memorials all over the place. You can read soldiers names who have died in the war on a memorial. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in New Zealand and Australia. It is when we remember all of the Australians and New Zealanders who were killed in the war.

We Celebrate Anzac Day on the 25th of April each year. There are dawn parades held all over New Zealand and Australia. During dawn parades civilians have one minutes silence to remember the soldiers who went to battle and died. The marchers are known as soldiers. A leader plays the Last Post on the bugle. When the soldier plays it, the music sounds sad. People wear poppies to remember the soldiers.

Anzac Day Learning

Anzac Day: Sharing What We Know

Anzac Day is on the 25th of April and it is to remember all of the New Zealanders killed in the war.  Thousands lost their lives in Gallipoli.  My mum told me that my great, great, great Grandfather was part of the war.  He was one of the soldiers who came back alive.  His name is Peter Wipani, a Maori Battalion Soldier.
