For ANZAC day, room 2 wrote a piece of writing about it. hope you enjoy.
Why we have Anzac Day?
We have an Anzac day because of many reasons. One of them is that we are meant to remember the soldiers who died in wars to protect our country. We also have an Anzac day to honour the soldiers who fought for our country. Anzac day is an important day of our history. Poppies are important because they were one of the only plants that could grow on the battlefield that they fought in. It was a way to remember the people that died in this war. The poppies are now sold and donated to RSA (retired soldiers association). The poppies remind us to be brave and not giving up on anything even if it is too hard. They sell it to help us remember the soldiers that fought and did their best. We celebrate Anzac day from April 25th 1916 to now! Anzac day started in 1915 but it wasn’t called Anzac day until 1916. Also, ANZAC stands for Australians New Zealand Army Co-operation.
All that concludes that both ANZAC day and poppies are important to most people in Australia and New Zealand. I feel sympathy for all the people that have lost family members.
