We've enjoyed hearing stories from home - the coconut thrower, the photos of medals, pictures of soldiers from both WW1 and WW2.
Here are some of the reflections about the week from the class.
Upokoina - I think ANZAC day is special because the people died so we can live in peace.
Leah - This week we have been learning about Anzac Day. We looked at different groups in the army. I was excited, we started with a soldier then we went higher and higher, I loved it.
Teagan - I think ANZAC day is special because these people fought for us. They gave up their lives so we could live in peace. This week I learnt how many soldiers were in a squad, an army group, and a troop. I was surprised.
Bradley - The ANZAC's risked their lives for us. We are thankful that they did that. They showed dignity bravery and strength. They did it for us to have peace and to have freedom. Flander's Field has lots of poppies and trenches.
Sophie - In Room 10 we have learnt how many people are in a squad, in a platoon and lots of other different group names in the army. We had to go home and have a talk to our family about relatives in our family that may have been involved in the war. They had to be 18 to go to war but some faked their age.
Laine - I learnt that Anzac day is special for a lot of people. People died for New Zealand. First I knew a little but I know a lot more about Anzac day. Anzac day is a time to remember the soldiers who have fought in the wars.
Natasha - I think that Anzac day is special to remember the soldiers that died in war for us and for peace in the world.
Sativa - I learnt that Anzac Day is a day of remembrance for some people. Some people stand for a minute in silence to remember all the humble and very brave soldiers that fought for us so we can keep on living. Thousands of Kiwi's and other people were fighting, getting killed, wounded and badly injured.
It is rude to let any country or cities flag touch the ground, it is disrespectful.
Chance - We have been learning about Anzac day. We found out that there is up to 1 000 000 people in an army group and there are 250 in a troop. Around 16 000 000 died in World War 1.
Sofia - This week I have learnt how many solders are in a army,wing,platoon...we printed,copied,counted,
Toby - ANZAC day is a special day because people died so we can live in peace and live well. (Always Remember them).
Joseph - I asked my Mum if she knew how many medals my great, great, great grandad Ruben had. He has five medals for serving. He was in World War 1 but was too old for WW2. My great, great, great, grandad Ruben was in a brigade.
Kahurangi - We learnt more about ANZAC day. A battle in the first World War was in Gallipoli which is in Turkey. Many soldiers from Australia and New Zealand were there. It was horrific, guns going off, grenades being thrown and people being killed everywhere. It was a fight to the top of the mountain.
