Skills for Adolescence
Unit, Lesson 5

Reflect on this week’s quote

We make a living by what we get, but we can make a life by what we give.– Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister

Write your reflection below:

I think this quote is talking about, life, so like we make living by what we get, but we also can make some one's life by what we give. This quote relate to respecting each other, and share the things that they don’t have or what we don’t have.  I love this quote because it shows me how we can make people’s life's better by giving them what they don’t have, like shoes and money, all the things they don't have.  If we make someone life better, it will come back around, if you make some one's life better they will respect you for what you have done to themimages.

This is a document about a quote we all reflected on this week, this quote is about making someone's life and also it's about respecting one other, if you have had someone's life, they will respected you for what you have done for them to have a better life. This quote is a powerful quote.

World War One Presentation

This presentation was put together by Charday and Deandra, our own research helped us develop prior knowledge about what had in the past to shape the present which us young kiwis are living right at this moment.

ANZAC Day- cloze task.

Anzac Day  - Cloze Task

Most Anzac day services Start with a march of returned service personnel

wearing their medals, and marching behind banners and standards. The

veterans are  joined by other community groups, including members

of the armed forces, the Red Cross, cadets etc.

The march continues to the local war memorial, where a service takes place.

This includes the laying of wreaths by various organisations and members of

the public. Flowers have traditionally been  laid on graves and memorials in

memory of the fallen. Laurel and rosemary are often used

in wreaths. Laurel was used by the ancient Romans as a symbol of honour

and was woven into a wreath to crown victors or the brave. Rosemary is used

for remembrance. The wreaths are laid to honour the people who have died

fighting for New Zealand.

The poppy has become the symbol of Anzac Day. The Flanders poppy as it is

also called grew in the trenches and craters of the war zone in Belgium and

at Gallipoli. These poppies grew wild in the spring. The soldiers thought of the

poppies as soldiers who had died. The poppy was very famous by Colonel

J.M. McCrae's poem written in Flanders' Fields. Poppies are sold on the day

before Anzac Day to raise money for the R.S.A. [Returned Services Association]

In most ceremonies of remembrance that is a reading of a poem. This is

often "The Ode to the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon. It was first published in

the Times newspaper in 1914.
They shall not grow did as we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary those, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning.

We will remember them.

The last post is the trumpet call sounded in army barracks at 10pm at

night to mark the end of the ANZAC activities. It is also used at military

funerals and commemorative services to show that the soldier's day has

drawn to a final close.

This is usually followed by a period of silence for one or two minutes as a sign

of respect for those or have died. After observing the silence the flags  are

raised from half-mast to the masthead. The Rouse is that played. The Rouse

called the soldier's spirits to arise and fight for another day.

The Reveille is played at the dawn services instead of the Rouse. The Reveille is

played only  as the first call in the morning . It woke the soldiers up at


Often hymns were sung and speeches made. The important part of the ceremony

is to remember those who died.

This comprehension task is dedicated to the ANZACs who sacrificed their lives for the sake of us kids, to live out our own lives to the fullest.
