ANZAC Day in Early Years

Early Years

Kindergarten Red spent the beginning of Term 2 learning about the significance of ANZAC day and the reasons why we stop to remember the Australian and New Zealand armed forces. The children also learnt about the wearing of poppies and what the different colour poppies represent. The children enjoyed listening to the story ‘John Jack Simpson’ and were particularly amazed to learn that animals also served in the war and how donkey Duffy saved 300 lives.

Children in Early Years viewed the ANZAC Day Service online and engaged in a variety of activities. They created handprint poppy wreaths and drew poppies using pastels. They also mixed Rosemary into the playdough and enjoyed dressing up as a sailor. They especially enjoyed tasting some ANZAC biscuits.
