Term 2: Anzac Soldiers Lunch

On Monday Room 10 had rations for lunch, the same food the Anzac soldiers had at Gallipoli. In the rations pack we had bully beef, cheese, jam, and hard army biscuits.
"I feel sorry for the Anzac Soldiers their food was disguisting" Logan said.
"The Biscuits were hard as rock and the bully beef looked and smelt like cat food!" commented Nicole, I didn't enjoy the lunch and felt sorry for the soliders that had to eat it.
Both of them agreed the only thing they liked were the jam and cheese.  
I personally do not like the look of this lunch.

We Will Remember Them

Room 10 are learning about the significance of ANZAC Day and why we remember the soldiers who went to war.

Nicole brought along her Grandfathers war mementos to share with the class- we got to see his medals, and listened to some of his diary extracts.
