Last Friday was Room 7's turn to present at Assembly. We had been talking about ANZAC Day and why we always see the poppy as a symbol.
We read a lot of different stories to help us understand more about why we celebrate ANZAC Day and what it was like for the ANZAC's, and then we made some poppy pictures for our class. Here we are waiting to show our pictures and to share some of our learning.
Then we put our pictures up in our foyer for others to enjoy. We hope you like them. We do !
Here are some of our ideas...
