In Year 4 our first writing focus for Term Two is poetry. To celebrate and learn more about Anzac Day, we discussed the roles that different animals played throughout the war. We looked at the importance of camels, dogs, birds, navy cats and horses. We discovered more about what these specific animals did, and how they helped the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for us. We found it interesting that some of the animals we have as pets also played a part in keeping our country safe all those years ago!
We then spent time writing acrostic poems for an animal of our choice, describing and explaining their role throughout the war. See some pictures of our Anzac Day Animals acrostic poetry below!
