This term in writing we have been learning how to use powerful vocabulary to convince an audience to buy our products. We had to make a prototype of our product and a poster to advertise all of it's features, price, where to purchase and how it could make our life easier.
Anzac Day occurs on the 25th of April each year. It
commemorates all New Zealanders killed in war and also honours all of those servicemen and women that survived.
The date itself marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand, Australian and Canadian soldiers – the Anzacs – in Gallipoli in 1915. The aim was to capture Gallipoli which was still held by the Turkish. 8,500 Australians and 2,800 New Zealanders died during this battle.
We recognise this day because it is important to all people to show respect to the men and women that went to war, to fight for our country and our pride. Many people died there, but the battle that they fought we were victorious in. The people that died showed bravery to fight when hearing gun fire and not freak out, they were loyal to our country and we thank them for their bravery.
Anzac Day is on the 25th of April, it commemorates all of the New Zealand's men who died in the war and honours returned servicemen and women. ANZAC stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps.
The date itself marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers (The Anzacs) at Gallipoli surrounded with water in 1915. The aim was to capture the Dardanelles, the gateway to the Bosphorus and the Black Sea. At the end of the fight, Gallipoli was still held by its Turkish defenders.
Thousands lost their lives in the Gallipoli campaign: 87,000 Turks, 44,000 people from France and the British Empire, including 8500 Australians. To this day, Australia also marks the events of 25 April. Among the dead were 2779 New Zealanders, about a sixth of those who served on Gallipoli. That's a lot of dead people!
In day two of sewing, we made bags got our phones or sunglasses. It was much easier than before believe it or not but I think it was because we had more practice. Before lunch, everyone had made their bags so after lunch, Mrs Notley decided we were going to make hacky sacks! They were fun to make and to play with. We filled them up with sand and let them sit in the sun for a bit.
