After going to the Rememberance Day Service we wrote a recount of our experience. Here are a few of them.
On the 11th of November, we walked to Lakala. We had recess there and a little play on the playground. Then we walked to the Memorial Park. We sat on the road but don’t worry the road was blocked off. A man (Mr Alan Oliver) came up and started talking into the microphone. After that they placed the wreath down. Some people from Mrs Woods year 5/6 class read a poem, called “In Flanders Field”. Later we stood up with our pieces of paper that had the name of each soldier from Port Elliot that had fallen during the war. After we walked back to school. I felt sad at the Memorial because people had died trying to make peace.

On the 11.11.13, it was Rememberance Day (I’ll bet you already knew that!). We started the day like we always do by doing the roll, choosing our weekly jobs and going on the morning walk. After that we came back and got our drink bottle, hats, fruit and recess 9most people just bought their bags – I didn’t.) We also made paper poppies, (at the end of this recount is a link on how to make them.)
After all that we started on the walk (finally!). It was fairly quick to get to Lakala Reserve. When we got there, we had our recess and a short play before walking to the Memorial (not more walking!). We sat down with the names that Mrs Warner had copied from the Memorial . I hope she checked if it was ok to do this due to copyright!) (Yes I did Jobe) We watched the Memorial service, put down the wreaths then Mr Oliver asked us to stand next to him for the minutes silence. Then the bugle played “The Last Post” and we prayed to god. Then we walked back to… WAIT before you finish this recount, I would like to thank you for reading my recount :) …. school.

On Monday the 11th of November, heaps of people from the school went for a walk. We left school and started walking. On the way to Lakala, we ate our fruit. When we got there, we had our recess then went for a little play. Then we kept walking to the Memorial. We sat for a little while on the road but the road was blocked off so it was ok! The people placed the wreaths next to the Memorial. After two girls read a poem called “Flanders Field”. Then Mr Oliver said a speech. We held up our piece of paper with a soldiers name that had died in the war. Then we had to get up and hold them. We heard the bugle play and did the minutes silence. After that we sang the National Anthem. Then we walked back to school. It was really important to go to the service. It was sad that heaps of people and animals died.
