We have been learning about ANZAC Day and WWI. On Friday 24 April, we made Anzac biscuits. Anzac biscuits got their name because during the War, the soldiers mothers and wives used to send them over for the soldiers to eat. They were really hard and they were sometimes called "hard tack" or "soldiers biscuits". The men had to dunk them in their cups of tea so they didn't break their teeth!
Our Anzac biscuits weren't hard though, they were yummy & soft and still warm from the oven!
The Easter Bunny visited Room 2! He left us a note to say he had hidden Easter treats around the room. We had lots of fun finding our treats!
The note from the Easter Bunny says:
"Hi Room 2! I have hidden treats for you all around your classroom. Look for your name but don't eat them till after lunch! Happy Easter! Be good. Love Easter Bunny XX. PS: keep up the good work especially with reading and writing. I wish my teacher was as cool as Miss Walker!"
We were very lucky to go on a school trip last Friday. We went to see a show at the Theatre Royal in Timaru called ‘Mr McGee and the Biting Flea’ which was put on by a company called Capital E. The show was very funny. After the show, we went down to Caroline Bay where we had lunch and a play on the playground before coming back to school to get out of the rain.
Thank you to the parents who helped on this trip, we couldn’t have done it without you!
