Our Anzac Study

We have been studying about the Anzacs We have had many great books read to us and have been doing lots of interesting learning about the Men and Women who fought in the war for us.

The teachers told us at assembly about their families in the War. Mrs Greenham bought a photo of her father when he had been an Aircraft Engineer in the Second World War and showed us the planes he used to fix in the Pacific and Hawaii. Mrs Kelly brought a photo of her dad and he was in his Naval Uniform.She told us all about him going away to war too. He was a very young man at the time too.

Today we are going to make Anzac biscuits and talk about Care Packages that were sent to the troops
