Each class, from CP to CM2, is working on ANZAC Day. See the first productrions done at home by the pupils!

What is ANZAC Day?

ANZAC means Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

ANZAC Day is a day to remember the soldiers who died during World War 1 and World War 2.

This celebration started from Gallipoli battle that took place on April 25 1915. It lasted 8 months and about 8 000 Australians died.

Poppies are a symbol of  ANZAC day because they were the first flowers to grow in the fields in Belgium and the North in France and it is also the color of the soldiers’ blood.

Rosemary has become a national symbol because in Gallipoli it grows on the battle field.

Cookies (Anzac biscuits) are also a symbol of ANZAC Day as the families sent food to the soldiers.

ANZAC DAY, by Leena (5th grade)

For Anzac Day, we decided to create a model. All the poppies represent the soldiers : their life and death.

The letters are decorated to remember that day.

The poppies get out from the earth like a new birth.

I enjoy a lot that work and I hope that I succeeded to create a real poppy field.

Qu’est-èce que ANZAC Day ?

ANZAC signifie Australia and New Zealand Army Corps.

Le 25 avril 1915 a commencé la bataille des Dardanelles. il y a eu beaucoup de morts et de blessés Australiens et Néo Zélandais.

ANZAC Day est une commémoration de cette bataille.

Teacher’s note : A Villers-Bretonneux en France, il existe un Mémorial Australien. Tous les ans, une commémoration est organisée pour ANZAC Day.

Voici le programme de ANZAC Day 2019 :

Un texte écrit par Arthur (CM1) à partir des exposés en anglais de Kervie, Anna, Akapo, Raphaël et Hugo :

Le 25 avril 1915 commença la bataille de Gallipoli (Turquie). Elle dura 8 mois. Beaucoup de soldats sont morts (dont plus de 8 000 Australiens). Beaucoup ont été blessés.

Dans les années 1920, ANZAC Day est devenu un jour pour se souvenir des Australiens qui sont morts pendant la Première Guerre Mondiale.

Tous les ans, le 25 avril, on se souvient des soldats et on les honore. On commémore aussi ceux qui ont servi pendant la Deuxième Guerre Mondiale.

Que fait-on en Australie pour ANZAC Day? (raconté par des élèves qui ont vécu en Australie) :

  • Les gens se rendent au cimetière.
  • Il y a des marches.
  • Les coquelicots sont un symbole d’ANZAC Day parce que ce sont les premières fleurs à pousser sur les champs de bataille en Belgique et dans le nord de la France et c’est la couleur du sang.
  • Le romarin est devenu un symbole national parce qu’à Gallipoli il a poussé sur les champs de bataille.
  • On cuisine des ANZAC biscuits : les familles des soldats leur envoyaient ces biscuits qui se conservaient longtemps et avaient une forte valeur nutritionnelle.

Akapo’s book report : Diary of a Wimpy Kid

                           DIARY     OF A WIMPY KID   Double Down                                                                                      

The story is about a kid who is talking about his life and the kid’s name is Greg Heffley. Greg thinks that his life was filmed because one day he saw a movie about a guy and his life was a movie and he didn’t know it. He thought that his life was like the guy in the movie. His mom thinks that his son is not smart enough so she took him to orthography lessons so he can stop forgetting his “ e ”. He had fun in these lessons and one day he didn’t forget his “e” anymore. So he gets rejected from the group. He tries to find something to do. A

nd there was a crazy Halloween party every year. But only people that are in the school band can go. So he tries the piano lessons and he doesn’t like it, so he tries the French horn. BUT HE SAW that only people belonging to the flute section could come, so he had an idea. Rowley, his friend is in the flute section so he just needs to be part of Rowley’s costume, which was giant pants so he went to the party.

The next day he wanted candies and he had again an idea to make a horror movie to win money and IT didn’t work.

Happy Saint Patrick’s day ! (by Akapo, Anna, Klervie)

1/ What is St Patrick’s day ?
St patrick’s day is an Irish party On St Patrick’s day, we do parades in Ireland (when there is no covid!).

2/ What we did at school
We wear green or we get pinched and we did Irish games.
We did a « musical shamrock » ; to play musical shamrock, you need music and photos of shamrocks.
How to play?
We stick shamrocks on the floor. Then, we play music and we have to go on the shamrocks when the music stops. If you don’t go on the shamrock you lose.
