SLJ Bonus Activity: In Flanders Fields:)

Bonus Activity: In Flanders Fields

As the new century dawned, New Zealanders settled into a period of relative calm.
The calm lasted for about 15 years but came to a sudden end in 1914 when World War I erupted in Europe. The war lasted for almost five years and claimed the lives of 18,000 New Zealanders.

It also claimed the lives of thousands of men and women from countries around the world. Every year, we remember these brave men and women on ANZAC Day (25 April). Many people go to a special Anzac Day ceremony where they read a special poem that was written for the fallen soldiers. The poem is called ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae.

Read the poem. On your blog, tell us what you think of the poem. Do you like it? How does it make you feel?


After reading that beautiful & fantastic poem It makes me feel so lucky to be having so much incredible Anzac people who risked there lifes for all of us. I feel safe to be living in a kind of Country like New Zealand / Aotearoa. It also makes me really sad as for those who risked there lifes to much & had past away in war. To all the families out there who had a family member participate in the war & had past away, I am terribly sorry for your lost ( I am honestly & really sorry for your lost ). I really think we should thank them all heaps as they went off to war & really fought for amazing / delightful freedom. I wander what you would have to say about this? What would you say & what do you think?

Bonus points: 10
