Anzac day 2013

Today for shared reading we read this article from Kiwi Kids news about our 2013 Anzac service in NZ.

The Pukeko reading group read an article about Anzac biscuits. Read our comments to find out what they learnt.



  1. I learnt that Anzac biscuits don't have eggs in them so they don't go soggy. People make anzac biscuits to rembember all the soildors that died in world war. We don't now who made the first anzac biscuits.The food parcels were carried in navy ships which took 2 months to arrive and had no fridges.
