The ANZAC Biscuite

WALT: Making conclusions from text  
SC: Make conclusions about why Grandad was funny about Anzac Day

The Anzac Biscuit by Jack Lasenby

  1. Grandad wore his medals on the left side. Why is that? What does it mean if you wear them on the right side? it means truth and bravery.
  2. Why do you think Grandad wished people would mind their own business? because when people ask he got the bad memories.   
  3. Why do you think Grandad thought the ANZAC biscuit was the best thing to come out of the war? because it made him laugh.
  4. Do you agree? Why/why not?yes because it says in the text and I can feel what the writer can feel if it was me

Bravery is when someone is not scared of anything and I did a moon sun and lithging bolt because moon stand for he  fought in he the night sun is he fought in day time and lighting bolt is he is brave like a lightning bolt.

Then it was our turn to go on the tram it was so fun it felt like we were on the road because I couldn't see the tracks for the tram.
When we stopped we the tram driver talked about the tram and the tram was made in 1914.

Then it was lunch time and we went to the meeting place to have our lunch then the instructor took us to the room where we could learn how
the soldiers could communicate with the base to get help and writer lettres to their family.The room was so cool and some of the things where real life.

After we finished we had to go back to our meeting place to go home  but we went in the black train it was so cool and scary because when
I went up the train they were too much people inside and when I went down it was scary too but cool then we went back to the meeting place and went home in the bus.

My best part was when I saw the big black train and the mere maze it was so cool and fun cause it was my first time completing the mere maze and I enjoyed it. I saw  the second fire engine it was cool
and it was cool to see lots of olden day cars and other transport.

Today Tuesday 5 May 2015 we went to basketball at 10:20 on the court, Coach Chanel said to us our warm up was ball handling skills we had to put the ball around our legs and around our body. Then coach said we got to find partners. When we all got into partners we played dribble tag we had to get with our old partner with and one of us had to dribble tag us but he was only aloud to tag his own partner and one of the rule was to only aloud to walk fast not run.

Then we played another game and it was called ship sharp shark.The game was to the people with a ball was to stand in the middle and and when she said shark we coach  had to run any where and when she said ship we had to run and dribble left and when she said shore we had to run and dribble with the ball right and it was a race and if you were last you were out and it was so fun.

After we played another game was octopus coach said who wants to be a tagger and the tagger had to get a ball and dribble the ball and tag the people but they weren't aloud to throw the ball at them because it were hurt them and if got tag you had to stand like a seaweed and try to bend over and tag them but your not aloud to move if you are a seaweed and it was the best game I ever played.

I felt happy to play the 4 games.  It was so fun my favourite game was octopus and ship shore shark those two games were the best to play ever and I learned to do ball handling skills.
