On Monday, the preschool children talked about war and the meaning of ANZAC day. We talked about the lifestyle the soldiers had to withstand, and the poor quality of the food.
We also talked about all the people who helped during the war, by sewing clothes, transporting medicine and baking ANZAC biscuits – a cheap and nutritious snack to give the soldiers energy to keep going.
We then made some of our own, and everyone got to add an ingredient, stir and roll the biscuits onto the tray.
The children thought it was very exciting to have their biscuits for afternoon tea. Delicious!
