Persuasive Advertisements

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.

We hope you enjoy watching these!

Anzac Day

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

Anzac Day...

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!

Sewing Term One Day Two - By Emma

Day Two
By Emma

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.

Anzac Day

Anzac Day

Anzac day is on the 25th of April every single year, on this day we honour all the men and women for participating the wars. Including the New Zealand and Australian who fought against the at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. It has been over 100 years since world war 1, Anzac day was officially declared was in 1916.

For my family we don’t celebrate anything other than Chinese new year or new years day. So for Anzac day our family and Chinese people don’t really celebrate Anzac Day. But for Australians Anzac day is a very important day for them, they celebrate it anyway even though there are not any people part of your family that joined the war.

Anzac Day Blog Post

Anzac day takes place on 25 April. It honours our New Zealand soldiers who have returned from war and have died during the war. 25 April was the day that the New Zealand Soldiers and Australian soldiers landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula 1915. I respect and always go to the Anzac Parades. I think that our New Zealand Soldiers need to be paid respect and honour. These people who went to war have died (and some of them have lived) fighting for our country. 2,721 people died (from New Zealand) and 4,852 people were hurt and wounded.

When we go to Anzac Parades, we support the people there. We pay respect to the people who have died for our country and for the people who have come back alive. Lots and lots of people die in wars and the people who come back are very lucky. I have a family member of mine who went to war and came back alive. His name is Uncle Nova. He is not alive now but he still came back alive! The men who had to go through all of the shooting, killing, injuries and hurt people are lucky enough to be alive.

The red Poppy has become a symbol to remember those who died or who still serve and go to war. In many countries, the Poppy is worn around Armistice day (11 November) but in New Zealand it is worn on Anzac Day. The Poppy has been linked with the battlefield deaths since the time of great war. The plant was one of the first to grow and bloom in the mud and soil of Flanders Field…

Anzac Day - By Emma

Anzac Day 

Anzac Day happens on the 25 of April. We celebrate and acknowledge the solders who had fallen to protect our land. Thousands of lives were lost and injured, in that time. Some people wear poppies to celebrate Anzac Day because the war was also on a poppy field.
Others back a cookie called Anzac Cookies because the solders had to eat hard foods in the war.
Anzac is a remembrance of how our land was defended by those brave enough to fight for it. Those who defended our land are the ones we celebrate; parades go on at like 5:00 am to celebrate Anzac. I think it is that early because that is when the solders had to get up for training.

Technology:Soft Materials (Sewing Class)

These are the three items that I made under the expert tautology of Mrs. Notley and Mrs. Cantley the items didn't turn out to look like how I expected but even if I failed I'd learn from my mistakes and make it better than before so in conclusion I really enjoyed this class and look forward to taking it next year
