Yesterday it was Remembrance Day and we did a couple of things to show our respect. We did some research to find out why Remembrance Day is on the 11th of the 11th at 11 o’clock. I did find out why and it was because it was the date that the countries signed a form to end the First World War. We also made poppies with a message of peace on the back of the poppies. On the back of mine I put “We will remember those who gave up their lives for our country, rest in peace” after that we hung them on a tree.
At the end of the day. The school held a special session in respect of the ANZACS. A couple of x soldiers from WW2 came to plant a special tree that was in Gallipoli. It is called a Gallipoli oak tree. The x soldiers planted it with the principle and the student leaders. The x soldiers also read out a speech. It was a very special day. The soldiers were a bit emotional from time to time.
This week I wrote a diary about soldiers.
It’s terrible. Bombs keep falling. Smoke fills the valleys. There’s violence and firing. There’s no peace what so ever. Soldiers where screaming. The Turks firing keeping us in line. It was freezing. Soldiers died of frost bite. It hailed. We where going to to a atack but it was to wet. The Ocean turned to ice. So we only got half a cup of tea, and no firing for three days. So we just threw bombs over. And hoped for the best.
Week 1 term 2
In maths I’ve learnt about angles. And when I say that I mean I learnt to use a protractor propley. I knew how to do it. But only very little.
I learnt my 3 times tables and a maths game it was target 100. You had to get to 100 without busting.
We also leart about ANZAC day and WW1 and WW2. It Was sad but we hung in. I looked in the Gisborne Gazette and I found a soldier.He was in WW1 he was a digger his name was Ray Campbell He lived in mount Macedon He is a very old man now.
We also read books like GALLIPOLI and A ANZAC TALE.
