ANZAC Writing

From the Journal of Jack Simpson

Shrapnel Valley, Gallipoli

Today was a terrifying day because we sailed to Anzac Cove

to attack the Turks but we got surprised because they were

ready to fire their guns at us when we landed on the beach. We

climbed a very steep hill when they were firing their guns.

When we finally got to the top lots of soldiers had been shot

and wounded.  The terrifying sound of guns and bombs filled

the air.  There was blood on the ground.

I saw that one of my old school mates was injured so I rushed

over to him.  He was badly wounded .  Unfortunately on  the

way down to the beach he died.

I wish I could wear clean clothes be in my warm bed.  If only

this horrible war could end.

Maths term 2

We are learning to use directions.
We can do this when we can give and follow directions using the points of a compass - North, South East and West.

Room 2 went outside and did a treasure hunt in pairs. One person hid the treasure. They then had to give their partner instructions to find it. E.g 2 steps north... It was a fun way to practice what we had been learning in class.

Our next learning step is to identify and use other directions such as north-east, south-west etc.
