April 25th is ANZAC day. When it is ANZAC day we remember the people that died in the war. On ANZAC day people wear a flower called a poppy. The people in the war died for freedom for their country.

Look at our amazing bean plants!! They have become too big for the peat pots they were planted in so we had to transplant them into a bigger garden tub. Everyone took turns to dig a small hole and plant their bean plant...and now we will watch them grow bigger...and bigger...and bigger!!! We must not forget to water them every day and Mr Revel, our caretaker has said he will help in the holidays. We can't wait to see how big they are after the break!

We are learning about statistics and today we made a graph about our favourite fruit in LZ7. Strawberries had the most votes with 13 children choosing it as their favourite fruit. Blueberries were second with 4 votes and grapes were third with 2 votes. No one liked the orange as their favourite and apples and bananas only got one vote each!
When Elmo went home with Meera he had a great time reading books, going for rides in various toys and getting to know Meera's family! Thanks for looking after Elmo so well Meera, and for sharing your photo news with the class!
On Friday afternoon we had a visit from the group 'The Polka Dots' to promote travelwise in our school community. They sang songs and danced and talked about why it is important to try and come to school by walking or riding our bikes or scooters instead of coming in the car. We had lots of fun singing and dancing with them!
