Happy ANZAC Day!!

Happy Anzac Day everyone!

There's been a lot of ceremonies throughout the country. It's like me eating lots of ANZAC biscuits. The best highlight of the day was the ceremony in Wellington, and I watched the whole event from channel one. I was also reading articles online about ANZAC Day online. One of them about the Anzac award given to two people the other day. Australia was also having a ceremony as well. Let's honor our soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Marble Jar Activity - Milkshakes

Image
On Friday, my class was in for a treat because of their outstanding behaviour, and because they have filled up their marble jar. Right after lunchtime (1:45), in class, our teacher's brother Uncle Asher and husband came in for a special activity, MILKSHAKES!!! It was a great surprise. Mrs Manuyag (our teacher) put all the ingredients on a white, small table.

The ingredients were fantastic - mini marshmallows, whipped cream, hundreds and thousands(shaped like dinosaurs!), sprinkles, food colouring, milk, and ice-cream.


The first milkshake, made by Mrs Manuyag, showed the ingredients and she talked us through the steps:

- First, put your ice-cream into your blender.
- Second, add milk. - Third, add your chosen topping (caramel, strawberry or chocolate). -  Finally, mix your ingredients in your blender (but make sure you put the lid on properly!)

After everyone got their milkshake, they went to Mrs Manuyag's husband, Carmilo. He was in charge of giving the whipped cream and the toppings…

My Inspiring Person Poem.

Jeanne d'Arc - a poem by Willy


Justified from some people at first.
Everyone thought she was a witch.
A King (King Charles VII) ordered the execution of Jeanne d’Arc.
No one thought that she received signs from God.
Nowadays, she is a Saint and has statues around France.
Everything changed when Pope Callixtus III declared that Joan of Arc was innocent.

As declared innocent, Jeanne d’Arc was remembered by people in France.
Remembered as a person who joined and helped win a war.
Called nowadays, Saint Joan Of Arc, The Maid of Orleans, and Jeanne d’Arc.

Today I have been teaching my Room 3 buddy Levi these netbook skills - how to open a doc, how to find a picture from Google, how to type a sentence and change size, colour and fonts, and how to post to a blog.

ANZAC Facts - Anzac biscuits.
Anzac biscuits are food used in the World War 1 and 2. It was more better than bread because it had a longer shelf life.Anzac biscuits are very easy to make. Anzac biscuits were made from New Zealand and Australian wives. There are many types of anzac biscuits like coconut, chewy ones, olive oil ones, and gluten free ones.

Won the game! Yes! I have learnt my words, but I will still need to practice them, so next time I could just choose a few letters then say the word. Easy! I should search up that name, Saint Petersburg.

Lost by choosing the wrong letter. He was so lucky. At least I know which words I should practice on...
