We are learning to identify shapes.

Today we went on a shape hunt around the school and we were amazed at how many shapes we found in our playground.
We found circles, squares, rectangles and triangles.

Look at the photos to see what we found.......

We're going on a shape hunt.
We're going to find a big one.
What a beautiful day!
We're not scared.
Uh-uh!  A door!
A big red door.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it.
Oh no!
We've got to go through it!

Oh no!

 Welcome and Happy Birthday Anna.

Anna's First Day at School.

Today we talked about why we are not at school tomorrow the 25th of April.
It is ANZAC day. 

ANZAC Day and Gallipoli: 25 April
ANZAC Day is celebrated in Australia and New Zealand on 25 April. Poppy Day is the Friday before ANZAC Day and is the day when people sell red poppy badges to raise funds for war veterans.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. This was the name given to the New Zealand and Australian troops who fought in the Gallipoli campaign in the first World War.
Gallipoli is remembered because it is seen as the time when New Zealand first really established its own identity as a country.
It is a time when we remember New Zealanders and Australians who fought in wars around the world. We might go to a parade, talk to older relatives about their memories, buy and wear a red poppy, make ANZAC biscuits, and remember our family members who fought in wars.

We decided to make some ANZAC biscuits. 

Tepatasi has the recipe and instructions.

We even remembered to do the dishes

Yum! Yum!

Anzac Biscuit History

Anzac biscuits (originally called Soldiers' biscuits) came into being around 1915 (during World War I) when soldiers' wives and/ or mothers would bake and send the biscuits to the troops stationed overseas. The biscuits were ideal because they were cheap to make (remember that it was the Great Depression), non-perishable (Anzac biscuits contain no eggs or milk) and so didn't need refrigeration, and gave the men some added nutrition and sustenance. As a bonus, the Anzac biscuit recipe is also really quick and easy.
After the now-famous landing of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZACs) in Gallipoli, the biscuits were renamed in honour of those brave soldiers who landed that fateful 25th day of April on the coast of Turkey, now known as Anzac Cove.
