The part adder - Make your own hard sums

In this photo I used the rounding strategy by adding 2 onto 48 and 1 onto 49 to make it 50 + 50 then - 2 and 1 to end up with 97.

In this photo I used the Spliting strategy by taking away 7 from 48 and added 41 and 49 to make 90 then I added 7 to end up with 97. 

In this photo I use the rounding strategy by adding 1 to 49 to make 50 then + the 48 and the 50 to make 98 then I toke away 1 to make 97.

Sylis and Oh Hsen helped me to find 3 different ways to solve 48 + 49 on the Part adder - Make your own hard sums.

ANZACs and Us

ANZACs and Us
Image result for Anzac

Most Anzac day services begin with a march of returned service personnel wearing shiny 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 for the local war memorial, where a service takes place. This includes the laying of wreaths from various organisations and members of the public. Flowers have traditionally been laid on graves and memorials in memory of the past. Laurel and rosemary are often made in wreaths. Laurel is used by the ancient Romans as a symbol of honour and was woven in 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 sometimes 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 made famous by Colonel J.M. McCrae's poem called  in Flanders' Fields. Poppies are sold on the day before Anzac Day to raise money for the R.S.A. [Returned Services Association]

Image result for Anzac dayIn most ceremonies of remembrance there 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 old as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning.
We will remember them.

The last post was the trumpet call sounded in army barracks at 10pm at night to mark the end of the days activities. It is also played 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 who have died. After observing the silence the flag are raised from half-mast to the masthead. The Rouse is then played. The Rouse called the soldier's spirits to arise and awaken for another day.

The Reveille is played at the dawn services instead of the Rouse. The Reveille is played only at the first call in the morning. It woke the soldiers up at dawn.

Often hymns are sung and speeches made. The important part of the ceremony is to remember those who died.
