Kool Kidz Tarneit Bake Special Anzac Biscuits (Recipe Inside)
Here at Kool Kidz Tarneit we recognise significant occasions and moments in history. Anzac Day is one those days. Anzac Day is held every year on the 25th of April, this started in 1916. Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
We celebrate this day in recognition of the soldiers who lost their lives on the Gallipoli peninsula in 1915. Without their sacrifice Australians would not be able to reflect on the events that happened over the 8 months in which the war was fought and sow their respects for the soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom.
In the lead up to Anzac Day children and Educators spent time preparing for Anzac Day, by decorating and making poppies. Each room worked on either a display for their wall or art work. The Kinder children worked on a constructive piece that we were able to place at the Shrine in Werribee. The Children and Educators are really proud of what they were able to create.
We started Tuesday preparing our Anzac biscuits for afternoon tea (see our recipe below) The children were excited to measure out the ingredients and pour them in the bowl. Once the recipe was mixed the children were able to roll the dough into small balls and place them on the trays, all ready for Julie to cook. Once they we cooked and cooled the children and educators enjoyed them for afternoon tea.
